They don't play with the Killers until 9th June, so that should not be an issue.

They are playing Camper Calling on one of their days 28th-30th May. So playing one festival and so may well play a few more over the season.

So after reading reviews and seeing the lineup I've booked tickets to this to get over the disappointment of failing for Glastonbury tickets. If I get lucky in the Glasto resale I'll just have to make peace with the fact I'll kill myself by going to two festivals a month apart.

That being said: Tell me about the festival! What goes down on the Thursday? Should I get their early? What weird and wonderful things can you get up to after dark? What cider do they sell??

They've been a bit vague (and probably deliberately so) about Thursday so far -

On the Thursdays in 2017 and 2018, they had an announced bill of acts on the Main Stage and DJs in the Woodland. This was fine in 2017, but was at least partly (in my view, wrongly) blamed for the traffic chaos in 2018 which gridlocked local roads for several hours with everyone trying to get on site on the Thursday morning.

So last year they cut it down a bit with less on and starting later - there was acts from about 6pm on the Woodland stage and I think Maui Waui. The times weren't announced in advance, but the acts were pretty much known as they'd been included in the announcements without saying where/when they were playing. So far this year, I don't think there's been any "undesignated" acts announced or any indication of what the plans for Thursday are.

This was the beer/cider menu last year -

That's tremendous info thanks. Thinking of working a half day on the Thursday then popping down after lunch arriving around 3:30ish so that sounds ideal for making the most of it yet missing the morning rush.

Enjoying the bar list. Although "pub prices" to me is more like £3.20-50, I guess £4 is cheap for a festival 😉 But is it really £4 a pint for a 10% beer?? 😨

10% beer is indeed £4
