Hey! I’ve done a fair few of the UKs big and small festivals but not IoW so I have a few questions (which might help other newbies) Travel from Thorness Bay Campsite Rather than muck in like I normally love to, I’ll be camping off site and travelling to and from each day (Thorness Bay). I heard there is a shuttle bus, but I can’t confirm it’s running times/costs. If there isn’t a bus are local taxis a good option, or are there hire bikes (Boris Bike-esque as is popular in many towns). Late night @ IoW I know IoW isn’t a big late night festival, but are there acts/stages that don’t appear on the main line up that are open after 12? I’m mainly here for live music but do like to keep the party going without pissing off the locals (do people head to Newport after a day at the festival). No booze on site I also understand that alcohol isn’t allowed to be brought in from outside. How strict is this rule and just how expensive is a beer inside the festival? General run down Other than this what would you say to a first time attender. Anything to look out for or avoid and any hidden gems in the festival or the wider island? Thanks!!
So this is my first festival and I have a lot of food allergies (list at the bottom) . Let's just assume I can't buy anything at the markets. I heard there might be a shop inside the festival where I could buy basic ingredients but I couldn't find any details about this online. Anyone know details about this shop? Can I expect it to be reliably stocked? I don't want to rely on being able to buy stuff there and then end up stuck without food. What kind of stuff is in the shop? Is it real food, pot noodle or snacks/bbq grills etc? Even if I can buy food, I'll need to bring some food with me anyway. Should I cook something beforehand and bring it? What ingredients/types of meals travel well? How can I make food i bring from home stay fresh as long as possible? I'm a pretty good cook so feel free to reccomend some high effort ideas. General advice for cooking at a festival would be appreciated. What sort of equipment do I need? Here's a list of most of my allergies/intolerances, ordered loosely by severity: nuts, dairy, eggs, soy, some seeds (e.g. Sunflower, chia, sesame), wheat (not gluten), some fruits (bananas, kiwi) etc
Hi there, I realise this is probably a long-shot, but I am taking my Dad to Glastonbury because it has been a dream of his for many years and we finally got tickets for 2019. Unfortunately he has been diagnosed with bone cancer and his mobility is greatly affected. He still wants to go to the festival and I really want him to have an enjoyable and as comfortable time as possible. Does anyone know who I could speak to re: provision of a more comfortable area for him to sit/stand when watching the acts? The only act he is desperate to see is the Killers so if I could get him a comfortable seat to sit on or something without others bumping into him would be brilliant. Any advice appreciated please ?
