Have a wander into Crickhowell one morning (assuming the weather isn't too shit), going along the river in one direction and via the canal in the other.

I like it, thanks.

If anyone gets a chance and can stick a photo of the site map from the program in here it would be greatly appreciated

Looks exactly the same other than Rough Trade Records being replaced Green Man Records.

For those who like their ale I'm pleased to report the standard festival IPA is much nicer than last year's.

Thanks for all your sterling work today! Do you know who makes it or whether it's vegan? My other half would be delighted if so :)

Brecon Brewery according to the programme. It's not listed as vegan whereas other are. For example all the craft beer is, as is everything made by Lucky Seven brewery. 

Good news is that Tiny Rebel are back in the Courtyard. I'll be smashing a few pints of Lush into my mouth before it runs out.

BEYOND excited at this point. Thanks @SweepingTheNation and @benali for all the updates today. 

Wondering could anyone tell me, where does the shuttle bus from Abergavenny drop, assuming at the Orange Car Park/general box office? 

As I pack... wondering how strict the booze rule is, getting things into the 'entertainment' areas – do they check bags? My usual at End of the Road is the (very chic) 'bag of wine', is that going to get me stopped if its in a rucksack? And assume 'entertainment' means anything that isn't the campsite? Will of course be availing of all the delightful beers, but do hate waiting at the bar when there's back to back music and clashes galore to navigate!

Other than one year where they were stopping people who were drinking cans from going through the wristband checks on the Thursday I don't remember anything.

They certainly don't check bags. I always take cans in my rucksack for the times when I can't be bothered to queue in the Courtyard.

Can't help on the shuttle bus, I've never used it.

No clashes for me except for a bit of a Stella Donnelly/Willie J Healey/Peaness/The Big Moon cluster on Saturday afternoon. Stella > The Big Moon is the easy winner there though.

Days currently look like this:

Thursday: Bess Atwell / Bodega / Amadou & Mariam

Friday: Mama’s Broke / Penelope Isles / The Beth’s / Marina Hackman / Squid / Stealing Sheep / Khruangbin / Ex:Re

Saturday: Modern Nature / Mapache/ Stella Donnelly / The Big Moon / Lee Fields & The Expressions / Big Thief  / Car Seat Headrest / The Comet Is Coming

Sunday: Self Esteem / Say Sue Me / Yak / The Liminanas / Chappaqua Wrestling / Eels / Sharon van Etten / Nilüfer Yanya

Getting all excited just typing that out!

You're right, and they are the best kind of surprise.

Whatever midges there were just disappeared because it pissed down for an hour.

Anyone looking at the forecast might as well not bother because it was meant to be a nice evening but then the clouds rolled in and we all got wet. Spitting now but also suddenly quite cold.

Sounds spot on for the Brecon Beacons. There’s a reason everything is so green around there.
