Blue Dot Festival

Recommended Posts

Haven't been before so I'm wondering: when should we expect stage times, and does the lineup look full or do you think there'll be more additions to it?

We still have the Roots stage to be announced and think the times are very close to the festival

They're terribly slow at announcing times but there's an app that'll turn up with them

There won't be a huge amount more - it's a very laid back small festival. We've never even really arranged meeting spots as you can zip around and find someone still.

We appear to be doing this again, albeit less raucously than last year's madness so far... good thing for the neighbours

The app is working already, has acts added in by day but no times yet... we are still missing Roots stage and not sure if all the music slots filled up elsewhere (I'll have to check number of acts against last year 1st)

It's so easy to get between places and takes a few mins at best, so you never miss anything really unless direct clash

Thing I'm waiting for is the list of food vendor and whether Blue Moon Bar will come back?? I do hope The Pitt on the Road vendors that were next to Orbit stage are back, as the food from all those vendors were superb!!

yeah food was better last year, at said area I liked there was:

  • Crispy fried chicken burgers as big as your head
  • Haggis, neps & tatties place
  • Steak (and I mean proper steak) and fries with some sort of sauce
  • Halloumi fries (snack for the win) and wraps
  • A shell fish place

It was superb :D

Shocking for northerners, not surprising for festival foods. It's on the slightly posher side of the spectrum.

The steak was £8-8.50, chicken £8, Haggis £7 (I think) & Halloumi fries £4 - they were all awesome!!

Orbit stage headliners are on after the Lovell stage headliners, right? Or will Hopkins and Hot Chip be clashing?

There's not really a rule, but Hopo (and 808 State) will be on after the headliner, I'm sure

I am very confused by the poster v the website/app re stages

What's going on with Nebula? Mission Control? Deep Space Disco?

 

Any idea?

Hi - I'm going for the first time this year, really excited. Just wanted to ask anyone who knows - are buying a meteor shower pass and a phone charging pass the only ways to shower and charge your phone, respectively? Can you not pay per shower/charge? Are the meteor showers the only showers, or are there any free, less nice ones? Thank you!

These are the only showers and phone charge points unless you have bought the glamping option which come with showers as well.

Personally I would invest in a phone charger, as cost is covered if you go to more than I festival tbh

I bought shower pass for the 1st time last year and it was a god send!! Just so you know whilst the showers are individual the changing room is communal :)

How will this fest be as a solo punter? Are there any Facebook groups or whatever? Kinda like how Reading has that Camp Loner group.

 

It seems I'm going on my own so now I'm not sure whether to still go or just sell my ticket :(

I'm also going on my own, so would be nice to meet up with any other solo campers and efest members over the weekend.  Hopefully we can sort out a meet up a little closer to the festival.

Sounds good to me. I don't mind doing concerts on my own, but festivals are different as it's nice to have some people around during the downtime.
