Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere, but is it just the NME/Radio 1 tent that's become a stage this year?  I had this idea that all of the tents were going to be stages this year for some reason? 

No tents are still very much in place at the sites this summer

The map for leeds can’t be too accurate. The co-op can’t be in the arena and the showers can’t be all the way down in yellow camping surely 

I thought this too, if the arena entrance is literally where the text is on the map (i.e a bit closer to blue camp) it'll create a worse bottleneck that usual on a night. Looks like they've definitely moved some of the village stuff around though

I was thinking yesterday, it'll be interesting to see what lineup is on the back of the merch. Don't know what the lead times will be but it'll tell us how last minute the lineup was/if they knew say a month ago if MGK was pulling out etc

Does anyone know anything about the "Transgressive Takeover" on the Alternative Stage?  https://www.readingfestival.com/news/alternative-stage-line-up-just-announced

Is it just a silent disco in the main arena area?  Or is it proper late night DJ sets?  And what does "very very late" mean?  

Late night DJ sets, goes on all morning I think, Transgressive is the company

They are DJ sets but usually as silent discos in the Alternative Tent. Finishing around 3-4am in previous years I think.

Ah ffs, so they're still silent discos, just in the arena instead of the campsites.  Bloody hell!

Might be different this year but every other year that's how it's worked. Queue up at the Alternative Tent and are handed headphones on the way in.

One year, there were a couple of late night live sets in there that were silent discos as well! I assume they don't have a license for amplified music after 12 because of it being a residential area.

Wish they paid for the license 😂

Good to know this. Good to know the music doesn’t have to stop at 11pm(ish) - Thanks guys!

Looks like the showers in yellow are actually those for camping plus. Also the co-op is definitely in the village just set back on the arena line

Is the schedule on the app still showing the gaps in the LU/Pit? I'm a lowly android user so wont be able to see until tomorrow.

Was really expecting an announcement today to fill some gaps, surely there's too many all to be secret sets. Hoping they don't do something like closing the stage early like they did in 2019.

I’ve got a bit of an issue

 

I posted a couple of pages back that I’ve ordered a citizen card for ID, which should be accepted. I don’t currently have a passport and I’m medically barred from getting a driving license

 

Issue is, I don’t think my citizen card will arrive in time for thursday

So I’m wondering, do you need ID to enter the festival? Obvs for drinks I will but I’m worried now

I think you do don't you to prove your COVID status? Either if double jabbed or negative test, don't you need to prove that you are the person it relates to?

What were the queues like at the other festivals this summer? Worse than usual with mobile tickets, NHS passports, covid tests etc etc. 

 

Tramlines was fine. But it is a day festival.

I went for a wander along the river in Reading on Sunday and it looked like they’d added a second checkpoint further east from the green entrance. Looked like they’ll do the covid check first before the normal ticket queue, which would be consistent with the couple of gigs I’ve been to lately

Hello! Me. If you mean guest / residents from thorner and Bramham? 
 

If so as far as I gather, it’s the same spot. Guest camping is in EXACTLY the same place. At least from Thorner’s side (where I’m from) Car parking is in a very slightly different place, but it’s just across the field. Buses and coaches go next to the camping, and then the shuttle usually parks just in the next field in previous years. Then you just take the shortcut by walking through the yellow gate. (If I have the name right?)

That’s what usually happens and that seems to be the same walking through, by, through info, seeing things and everything. I will try and double check this for you though if you want - and that’s what you mean 😂

Fab yes this is very helpful, yellow gate is where I need to go. 

Just to confirm - your guest camping wristband does again you access to all the public campsites too if you wanted it yeah?
