  1. Weather is gonna suuuuuck for sure next year I can see it now
  2. Sounds like a great idea to me I'd be all for it. I'm sure there's some drawbacks here but my brain being desperate for pubs/gigs clearly can't see them currently.
  3. Couldn't agree more mate. They're first on my list every year. Unlike a lot of festivals the organisers try and run it for the fans rather than trying to make money. It's not just the bands but the awesome food, yoga, spoken word, games (they had mini golf at Trees last year), extra things for kids, silent disco etc etc. Trees is my favourite weekend of the year every year without fail and if the weather at ATG wasn't so consistently horrendous it would definitely be up there too!
  4. Ohhhh please don't be true! I mean of course it was going to be but still don't like to hear it ☹️
  5. So my sister-in-law has it we’ve found out recently and all of the family that were there have now been ill to an extent. 111 said just to assume we all have it and have been self-isolating for the last few days. Everyone has had similar symptoms to varying degrees but at the worst it seems to be a nasty cold. Personally I was pretty ill for 2 days and now I’m fine. Isolating ourselves for the next week under advice from the government just so we don’t infect anyone but that’s pretty much it, the intense boredom of being trapped in the house is probably worse than the actual illness tbh
  6. Nah pretty sure it was just that robot band
  7. I was so confident in my prediction for Wednesday a few weeks ago, now feel like there's pretty much no chance... Cmon Emily prove me wrong I'm sick of hearing about nothing but bloody coronavirus!!!
  8. Just had a look at that announcement and don't think there's ever been that many announced for any other year in March, right? Maybe they'll change that for 50th year!
  9. Architects would be a brilliant booking, hope there's some substance to this!
  10. The price has barely risen for years before this and with the emails they were putting out last year about 'please try and buy from the bars' it sounds like they were losing quite a lot of money on the original ticket price. Rather than the size of bands going up I reckon it's just to make the festival more viable tbh, they don't run it for a profit so I can only assume costs have gone up a lot

    Ticket touts.

    I've used Viagogo to buy tickets but only when they're around face value. The charges the site add on are absolutely ridiculous, makes tickets even more expensive, I don't understand how they get away with those fees
  12. I wasn't in the campervan fields last year but lost my ticket going to help my friend get some of her gear from her car, it must have fallen out of my pocket during the walk somehow. I did get back into the festival but it took nearly an hour queuing at the little cabin (box office) at gate C who had no computers and basically were calling seetickets to confirm all of my personal details and trust me they went through literally everything. I was just relieved to get back in tbh, although there were a lot of people queuing up that clearly didn't have tickets as they didn't have a wristband, ticket or a pass out... There was a guy I was chatting to who was in the campervan fields who had lost his and he had to go through that process every time he had to go into the festival which sounded like an absolute nightmare, this was only Thursday so I've no idea how much time he wasted trying to get himself in. In short, if you lose your ticket you can get back in but it's a massive pain in the arse
  13. Why do I keep looking at this thread? Well imagine what a knob I'd look if there was an announcement and I'd somehow missed it
  14. I mean it might be... This would be the earliest poster drop so far though right? Seems unlikely but who knows
  15. There's a lot of tours in Feb so I reckon they're waiting for them to finish before announcing, maybe next week?
