A few annoying knobheads in a crowd of thousands of fun, relaxed, like-minded music lovers.

Personally I think there's a great atmosphere in the campsites, gets a bit silly on Sunday night but just don't go near the twats and there's good times to be had.

We camped in Red this year and I did notice the nobhead count was higher than usual. Blue or Orange next year.

We camped pretty much 2 mins walk from the entrance and it was awesome. No trouble, fun field with plenty of banter. Not a massive amount of walking to be done and not camped on some rediculous slope!! Highly recommended!

expect it to be a LOT louder in the campsites - no sleep at all unless you're sleep-pilled up to the eyeballs or pi$$ed as a fart.

a LOT dirtier as well, grubby, grubby, grubby all the way, but i LOVE getting dirty!

Leeds is amazing, it may sound like an odd thing to say but from past experience I think if you're a sociable kind of person you'll love it. My mates who seem a bit shy lets say didnt enjoy it at all.

Not much sleep.

Smelly bogs/mud.

Drinking.

Music.

Meeting random people.

Dancing.

Not much grub.

Seems to sum it up.

Same here!

Been to plenty of v fests over the years and a couple of glastos but i felt like a change this year. Leeds is just over the pennines so why not.

It seems that if you stay out of the way of the 15yr old knob heads you'll be fine and my £10 tesco tent will be ok!

totally agree though,, its not the young ones whp cause the trouble (although the jeans half way down the leg thing with superman keggs hanging out does put me off my morning breakfast in can)

in 05, we had a mahooseeev explosion kick off right next to our tent, we managed to get off,, get most of our stuff out,, and then put it in the car.. I then came back,, and tried to get the lads to stop as our mates' tents (who hadnt come back to camp yet) were about to be caught up,, and they were proper dicks, lads about 24-26, still trying to live their 'crazy' uni years i think.,.

I did however, throw 2 cans of beans at the main 'leader' and threaten to slice his balls off with my old frying pan! :-)

im camping in yellow this year (the first time since that incident) and I swear if i see any knob head being a dick (camp fires are ok, but going round and torching tents and being generally dickhead like) then i really will kick them to fook!

And that is why you camp with friends, try to be in as big as group as possible, stops people starting shit, burning your stuff, and there is normally one or two people back at camp so less likely to have anything robbed.

Also, try making friends with whichever randomers your camping next to, you watch their ack and they'll watch yours.

And yes i do realise im making this sound like festival based warfare, its not really that bad.
