Well goodbye to the best toilets award.  None in boutique area (not that it matters as fences are missing) and the ones shared with quiet area are already empty of bog roll and have plenty of unflushed surprises. People are animals.  

Are you sure? They are normally next to the tent with the sofas and charging station.

 

How can there be no fence, everyone will be using the power banks/showers..!

As far as I've seen every festival this year has had bad feedback on the toilets. I gather a lot of the big suppliers are being used at testing and vaccination sites and obviously given the short notice of 100% confirmation everyone's had beggars can't be choosers but...

In fairness the non portaloo toilets are pretty great if a bit more pokey than the old andyloos. There seems to be less of them though. Hope they stay in good nick. I was really just annoyed after finding 4/5 toilets in a row unflushed at 1pm first day.

Hey, it's Tyson from Slow Down Molasses (we played EOTR in 2011 and 2016).  I've got a bit of a random note here.

Has anyone who is now on site seen an art installation that looks like this:  https://www.instagram.com/p/CTA-D6Bn4Dw/?fbclid=IwAR2QQ-qRxNU9GNWwXJD4NwNrcI40AViwI46cL9MUYo7qDWfsGGasLo70OYE

If so, please post photos if possible. It's by our bassist, Chrix Morix.  He was to be over there to set it up, but was not able to make it due to flight restrictions.

Also, on a side note, if you have not seen, we have a new album coming out in October. Here's the first few songs. We were to be in the UK in October, but just had to cancel those dates due to flight restrictions.  Though we should be able to reschedule for next spring.

Have a blast everyone. I'm envious of you all!

I have so much love for this festival and cannot express how much admiration I have for the organisers and staff for the tireless work they put in to make it happen.

We had an absolutely amazing time, saw some incredible music, met up with a load of great people and drank and ate very well indeed.

Highlights:

Warmduscher, Lice, Crack Cloud, Little Simz, Just Mustard, Wu-Lu (my word, those last few songs and the drummer's epic stagedive) Stereolab, Kikagaku Moyo, Lazarus Kane (please don't stop now), PVA.

Being back at Larmer Tree, I think this is the 15th festival I've been to on that site going back to Big Chill's in the 90's and it never loses its charm and magic.

Other stuff:

Beer was decent and I didn't miss Beavertown's wallet busting prices. 

Enough food although a couple of stalls were sorely missed. Shout out to Dosa, Curry Shed and Persian Street Food all of who were excellent.

Stranger Than Paradise. Please have them back next year instead of Rough Trade again. A proper independent shop with amazing staff. Really loved what they did this year.

The wooded area was so lovely again, it's beautiful to wander around at night when it really comes alive.

Toilets weren't up to Andy Loos standard but I didn't have too many issues as long as I took my own bog roll.

Can someone have a word with whoever picks the frankly awful music blaring from the Cider Bus on Thursday night? I love drifting off to sleep with the hubbub of festival noise in the background but when it's the only thing playing until 3am and 80% of it is utter shite it's really quite annoying.

They obviously had issues with the crew wifi which meant some places reverted to cash only. Didn't bother me as I had plenty on me but can see how it would have impacted others and also the trade of the businesses.

The people. We all know things are a bit shit in the world so a huge group hug to the amazing crowd who contribute towards make EOTR such a beautiful festival. It was genuinely heartwarming to see so many happy, smiling faces around. Big love to you all.
