I'm mid forties and staying the entire festival, in a tent.

Nobody I know fancied this, but I feel a need to at least see Depech mode live before I can no longer have this privilidge.

I do enjoy new music.

Anyone else visiting the entire festival solo?

I'd be up for that, depeche mode have been my favourite band since 1981. Arriving on Friday and staying in an Air bnb for the weekend as I couldn't cope with camping. Looking forward to the fest and hope we can get together to enjoy some of the bands.

I'm going on my own but only for the Sunday, wasn't brave enough to go the whole weekend on my own, get in touch and we could meet up, but I'm sure that by Sunday you will have lots of buddies.

Yes! Also a full weekender, not sure what time it opens but hopefully arrive sometime around lunchtime on thursday, quite keen to catch Hacienda Classical so hoping they don't clash with The Mode. It would be great to have someone in the same situation as me as a neighbour 😎

Hey so my friend pulled out yesterday so I'm camping thur - mon on my own. If anyone fancies getting together to watch a band or have a drink, or likely do both, let me know. I'm not a lifelong Depech Mode fan though 🙁. I hope this doesn't matter. Especially if anyone wants to see the music on Thursday eve that would be cool. I'm 30, I'm a postwoman, I like going to festivals. Happy to hang out and see some new stuff.

Been a big depeche mode fan from early on, Blossoms, gallagher, killers, there's a few good ones this year. Saw the manics last year so they'll be good as well. Just read about Gerry, local boy for you. WIll have to check him out. Will message you so we can get together for a pint (or 3!).
