Ruined my boots last week in Download (the sole came off my right boot, haha) and I gambled on not buying replacements once I saw the forecast.

Glad I’ve just got my trainers, two months to save up for boots for Reading haha.

Yeah the count seemed to go up didnt it as the weekend went on. Still nicely reduced, but a lot of cans instead.

Not so much weather wise but I’m curious to know how the litter is this year with the plastic bottle ban? Would be cool if it actually made a substantial difference. Perhaps it’s too early to tell? Let me know!

Was an utter disgrace at every stage (Glade and some of the Green fields notable exceptions) and even most campsites. Saw so many people chucking cans or plates on the floor when 5m from bins :girlsad:

Of course, it doesn't help when some of the bins are filling up quicker than they are being emptied but is there really any excuse for that? As others have said, it's really not a challenge to have a net positive effect on the festival. Clear away your own shit and a couple of extra tinnies every time you pop to a bin and it's better for everyone.

@Bin Fish as promised your flag was flying at Beatherder. It’ll be out again at Leopallouza festival in a weeks time.

Oh my god, I love it! That's 100% your flag now though Dee. 😘

Hope you had a great time in my (former) neck of the woods. I never realised it was quite so close to home!

Still very dusty.

Are you still on site? If so is there much infrastructure etc left?

Just switched on 6 for the first time in absolutely aaaaaaages and, bizarrely, immediately caught Lammo playing a suggestion from @deebeedoobee(unless there's more than one!). Napalm Death, as seen at Boomtown apparently...

So, how’s the ground for the pilton party!

Lush grass. Firm under foot. Currently no wellies needed.

We were there at the weekend and it was glorious. Lush long grass, dusty tracks and entirely sitable everywhere. Here is a random picture which demonstrates lushness and, if I can work out how to do it, I will upload some of my crap amateur gopro walkabout on the farm footage.

Nice!   Heading down for a few days in the town before Friday. Will pack the wellies and rain cape just in case. What a treat, getting back to the site so soon after the festival!  Might even head into the village a few days before and visit the Crown!

@deebeedoobee I don't live too far away from the site and was thinking of a stroll around it this Sunday.  Would that be a bad idea - is it busy with prep for the Pilton Party and would I just be getting in the way?  I can wait until later in Sept if need be!

As long as you stay away from red gate and the JP field you'll be fine. Lots of tourists have been on site this month. Never a problem as long as folks stick to the by ways and respect the farm. But then that's a given I know. Best stay on Eavis land too. The farmer from Steenbow has been getting funny with people walking/running  on his land.

The Crown is a great pub. Very friendly landladies too.

Thanks for the advice :)
