Hey Bluedotters.  Anyone who's been before, where is the weekend parking in relation to the campsite?  i.e. is it feasible to leave stuff in the car or is it a five mile hike?

You'll laugh at this shortly.

It's a very dainty little festival. We never even arranged meeting up properly in the larger group year - you can walk through all the possible spots so quickly most of the day, it's a rather nice change if you're used to the big ones.

I know, I tried to work out the distance from far end of orbit to middle of campsite and I think the whole thing is pretty much the size of Paines ground at Glastonbury!!! My feet were so thankful

Only 2 weeks today!! :D

First time at Bluedot for us this year - looking forward to it. 

I’ve noticed there’s an incomplete clashfinder up - if this doesn’t get done does the Bluedot do the usual festival thing of having a £15-ish programme that you never read except for the Clashfinder?

Deperate to start planning out our weekend of music and weeping over any clashes.......

All weekend tickets SOLD OUT. 

(Just as I emptied a HP cartridge printing 15 pages of each day's activities for comparing and contrasting with another - also sold out - festival - GAH). 

Day tickets still available (apart from Saturday -Kraftwerk day -which sold out months ago)

They have an app which will have all the times on it, that'll be out soon I think then there can be a clashfinder for me to print and leave at home.

Worth having a good gap to do the Luminarium, it's lovely when you're not in a hurry but the queue can be mental. Keep an eye and dive for it

I started doing the clashfinder but stopped halfway as it got a bit confusing. As above, will update when we get official times. No point guessing I suppose :)

Ah that’s great - thanks for making the effort to get it done.

Hi folks! Heading to Bluedot for the first time this year and wondering what the vibe is like? I get the impression it's pretty wholesome and family friendly (which is super!) - but what about later at night? Some of my favourite little festivals have been the ones that nail that balance between wholesome daytimes with good places and people to party with at night, so was wondering if Bluedot is similar. 

If it's more of a fun wholesome daytime lark then that's totally awesome too, of course. Just wondering what to expect!

No worries guys. Can anyone remember if we actually get times in advance usually? I seem to remember we don't - in which case I'll make some time to go back and work from last year's :)

Night stuff is not bad, they have stuff on late until 2am in the arena and 3am in the Outer Space area which is in the woods/Roots stage area Friday and Saturday. Sunday finishes a bit earlier 1am arena, 2am outer space...

I'm really looking forward to this festival. I've not been to Bluedot before and Kraftwerk is going to be a lifetimes treat for me as they are one of if not my earliest musical memory.

I'm travelling solo from Devon so if there's anyone else travelling from the South West with a spare seat I'd be grateful to lift-share. Likewise if anyone wants to meet up at the festival, is there a solo festival travellers Facebook group or anything?

I haven't got a Thursday ticket. What time does it all kick off on the Friday? If I'm travelling by train I probably wont be arriving until 4 or 5pm and I really want to make the most of the weekend.

I'm also going alone on the Friday til Monday! I haven't found any solo groups on social media but it would be good to meet some new people.

I'm going to DM people that said they are/thinking about going alone in a few days, about seeing if we want to plan this a bit,  very causually! hope that's ok? or it will get to Sat 20th,  ill be on site, and I will have done nothing about it...which is what usually happens.. 

Count me in!

Hopefully a few of us can meet up. Have you been to Bluedot before?

Definitely! No it's my first time, what about you? Do you think there is a camping bit for those alone as a way to mingle easier?

First time for me too, really looking forward to it. I think they may have a family camping section which usually doubles as the 'quiet' area but not sure other than that. I'm making the journey up from Devon with a backpack so can only carry a small tent as it is, and I can usually squeeze that into a small space anywhere in a field, although it would be great if a few of us could get a spot to camp together. I guess the sooner we get there the best choice of pitch we'll have. What time are you arriving? My train get's into Goostrey at just after 3pm.

Half a dozen of us solo'ers are going to meet up,  or camp together, depending on what people want to do, send me a message with your e mail address, or better, number, if you'd like to get invite on WhatsApp?
