Shindig Weekender

Recommended Posts

All stages are in tents. Plus it's only a couple of thousand people so minimal churn underfoot. My group are all chipping in for a £30 gazebo.

7000 people this year. They’ve increased from 5000 last year. Pretty stoned under foot too so probably minimal slop

Very luck to escape the sort of weather that was forecast. Was glorious a lot of the time and I missed the only big downpour (was in a tent watching Plump DJs). Made for a seriously enjoyable weekend - our group all want to go next year (third time). Top tunes - anthems everywhere - made for so much fun and great atmos. Superb value for £99!

We were in the same tent for the dowpour then. Quality weekend wasn't it.

To echo Homer and Pilton Digger, it was an excellent weekend. 

Great music, great people and great weather. Couldn't ask for more.

It’s easily got to have been the friendliest festival we go to. Everyone is so nice and chatty. Plenty of random hugs, great music, and the sun again this year. And just 20 mins from Pilton..can’t complain at that.

I am definitely up for this again for next year. 

I was chatting to one of the organisers and we were discussing about making it bigger but we both agreed that it would lose its 'je ne sais quoi' if it got too much bigger.

Apparently, last year the organisers just about broke even and this year they would've made their first profit, so hopefully they are happy with that and don't go after bigger £'s.

Bought mine as soon as I failed to get a Glastonbury ticket, so am on for the hat trick. Big group of us going too.

The headliners are a bit  compared to the last two years, but the DJ line-up is, as ever, something else.

Less than two weeks until Shindig 2019 and I am really looking forward to it. Dare I say it, possibly more excited about this than I am for Glastonbury this year.

Am in for #3 too. Think there are 15 of us this year - pretty much everyone who went last year is back in!

Weather got a small upgrade this morning - bit more sun, still no rain!

Must be something about the number three. My third time too. And a huge group too. 😜

Forecast really is perfect - no rain, 20 degrees, sunny periods with clouds.

Had an excellent time again this year. Great music, great people and (mostly) good weather.

Already looking forward to next year.
