I am not going for a ticket till I see the line up. Am at Kendal the following week so it would take New Order or Hot Chip to get me to Jodrel.

So now that both are now confirmed, are you going??

Do they usually do two day tickets for this? Im not too bothered about going on Friday but Saturday tickets are sold out. So was hoping they might do a Sat+Sun ticket or something

So guys, whats this festival like. The line up just impressed some friends in Florida and I might link up with them. Is it a good time?

Personally I think it's great. Fits my musical taste more than any other festival. Well organised, not too busy, decent toilets, great atmosphere, late nights. How do I say this... it doesn't have anyone celebrating finishing their GCSEs or A-Levels.

I’ve never done this but am considering this year. Did this sell out in the previous years? If it did, how fast?

It sold out for the 1st time last year but that was just the week of the festival. I do think there will be more interest this year as it made a better mark after last year's festival, but don't think it will sell out too quick tbh

However, I was surprised that Saturday day tickets sold out within days but guess that's the draw of Kraftwerk!!

Thanks.

I wonder whether the other day tickets (i.e. Friday and Sunday) will be released or not. I like New Order but Hot Chip is not my cup of tea... And which day does John Hopkins perform?

it's fizzy keg beer (unless they've changed things?). Was a real disappointment to find that in a 'real ale' tent. :(

I'm a bit in love with that line-up! Wondering if I can justify this as well as Glastonbury...

So general consensus is it likely won't sell out for a little bit (despite Kraftwerk being a big draw)?

If it's like last year you'll get tickets for half price on Twickets.

Really? Now that would definitely swing it. Really didn't sell well last year, then? Can't remember who headlined.

I went the year before and don't think it sold out then, but it was still a new entity.
