Apparently so! I won’t be. I just do my thing... Full of glitter and sequins. 

Will there be capes?

I've got my tickets for this...first time

Of those of you who've been before - what is/how big is the showcase stage and why is it blank on the line-up so far?

Any preferences of where to camp for quiet/sleep without being completely out of the way

How busy does it get arriving - Id like to be there for bands on the Thursday but may not arrive until late pm

Any other tips/tricks in particular to this festival over others?

It's a new stage this year, not yet announced who is playing on it.

There is a quiet area, not sure how quiet it is though, am usually in the CV area. No where is far to walk anyway, 10 mins from far end of camping to arena :)

Thursday has been busy last few years, by end of the afternoon you shouldn't have to wait long.

It's the best one I've been to, it's friendly, fun and the bars are brilliant. Plus take your own if you want, no glass as usual though.

Enjoy :)

@not worthy  Gates shut at 8pm on Thursday for entry and I think this is a pretty strict cut off.

Only takes about 10 minutes from wherever you camp to the center of the site so no problems on that front.

I have never managed to get into the family/quiet camping area as always full within about an hour of gates opening.  This year they are doing it differently though.  I am not particularly bothered on staying in the family camping area - we have been in the general camping with 2 kids the last few years and it has always been great.  Only reason I want to be in family camping is we are less likely to annoy other folk in there when our kids are up before 7am.

Excellent, thanks for the info. Can you take your own cans into the arenas?

thanks so much, that 8pm cutoff could be a pain

We always go straight for the Family camping area, even though mine are getting a little older. Yes it fills up really quickly, and some years we've been with the masses where you risk being up all night with the singers and bongo brigade. Not great when you have kids. 

I think this year you're allocated family camping at point of purchase??

Got tickets to this - first time going and after reading this thread am sooo excited!  I've missed hanging around efestival forums!  Don't know many of the bands playing but absolutely love listening to the playlist for Glasto and finding new ones to aim for so have just started on the BT one for this year. 

I have absolutely no idea either about the different stages etc so will have to mug up on that before the end of May.  Though tbh am also happy to go where the mood takes me and stumble over things!

Eeek!

Good work, @sparkythetortoise

 

 

Always makes me chuckle when I see folk taking it too seriously. I should put on a disclaimer

"The Clashfinder is for amusement only  and intended as a taster, not a replacement, for the program to come. Other, equally inaccurate wild guesses are available."

Actually, I won't be making any changes for a while. I'm getting blocked from Clashfinder with "NET::ERR_CERT_DATE_INVALID Your connection is not private". Are you getting the same?

No idea what that means but its enough to frighten me off til fixed.

Thanks for the tip - unfortunately having the same problem with Opera. I'll probably handle this in the way I do all IT problems. Ignore it for a couple of days and hope it goes away

Er...Have you tried to open another tab in Bournemouth on Acid....

nope, that's all I've got

So I tried googling it, but all I came up with is a 40ft prehistoric snake. Not entirely improbable as a Convoy Cabaret headliner, but I doubt it was what was meant either, so am none the wiser

I've made the other minor updates, and added the stage, but I'll need some sort of day split and running order before going any further
