I thought I had a pair of Saturday and pair of Sunday tickets but just checked my confirmation emails and it appears I have 2 pairs for Sunday? I definitely clicked the Saturday link once and Sunday link once so not sure what’s happened there.

Now I just need to find somewhere to stay which isn’t going to cost a small fortune...

A buddy has got 6 tickets when it says there is a strict limit of 4 per person. Reckon it will be enforced?

No, I got 6 tickets last year for Coventry, with details the same (card, name address). They never ever checked ID the times I’ve been. 

But not to say that could change this year (unlikely)

What time does this usually finish? Might try catch the train somewhere else to stay?

Failing that any ideas where to stay? Any campsites?

Does the fact Festival Republic are once again helping with this, explain why tickets aren’t free anymore?

or am I just thinking crap

where’s everyone thinking about staying, i literally can’t find anywhere 😕

I've booked a Travelodge in Darlington, hoping I can get public transport or an Uber from there.

This is where I find out it's nowhere near...

Its about half hour on the train, probably your best bet.

Has there ever been a big weekend in London and if not would they ever consider having one there?

Yer, in 2012 it was in Hackney to coincide with the Olympics

other than Olympic year, it will never be based in one of the main English cities until they run out of places to visit. Remit is to hold a festival somewhere that often gets overlooked

Going off key a little bit, Luton is going put in a bid to become City of Culture (😂) in 2025. So if it happens and it’s successful, it’s going to be the first time it’s near me! (Unless it comes this way before then).

Are there going to be any more acts announced? (& if yes, who do you think?)

I’m pretty sure Ariana Grande is playing the Sunday but they’ve been told they can’t announce until the last minute.

You probably won’t get many more Main Stage or Where It Begins Stage artists announced but there’s still the Introducing Stage to be announced.

What makes you think this? Just had a neb at her tour dates and she'd be in the US either side of R1 Big Weekend. Fingers crossed tho.
