Mental. I've got so much work on between now and then that I forget it's so close! Shit I need to sort my tent out. And wash my sleeping bag. And buy stuff for it 😂😂

I keep aiming to air my tent and I would...if it stopped fucking raining! 😆 

It looks clear now though. Excuse me, I have things to do...

Hehe weather is all good rest of the week. I didn't get mine out after Reading 2019 but luckily it was a dry one so it SHOULD be ok....

Anyone know if they will have a camping shop/stall on site which sells air beds etc? I've messaged them but no reply as of yet.

If they are there this year go to the St Elizabeth Hospice stall first (normally just before the entrance on the left). They normally have camping stuff and it'll be cheaper and for charity.

There always has been in the past - in the "Village" in the campsite

Just want to point out that my friend runs a camping store and they're having stock issues this year, mainly down to disruption around shipping containers and China, so while I'd imagine there will be stuff on the camping stall I wouldn't rely on it. His is a reasonable sized online retailer too

Thanks for the info all. I'll try to get everything sorted beforehand if I can, and take an extra trip to the car if need be.

Just noticed on the website that gates are opening earlier this year.

I wonder what the reason is?

Traffic management?

Or longer time to get onto site due to vaccine / test checks?

As we have a 4/5 hour drive we won’t be arriving early anyway, but I wondered what others were doing?

I mean, Latitude is hardly Glastonbury in terms of the rush for camping space.

First time at latitude for us and first festival in a campervan too, so less bothered about time - we’re working Thursday so we’ll be leaving Liverpool at 5pm. Hoping to get on site around 10pm.

First time at Latitude this year. We’ll be travelling over on the Thursday from North Wales so 5 or 6 hr journey each way, looking to get there for 4 o’clock (very much traffic dependent). 
 

Likely to have long queues at this time? 
 

Any tips on best places to camp (standard camping)?

Imagine it's a mixture of all those rseamer. 

I imagine the majority of time added will be confirming the vaccine/test checks though.

Think it's good they're pro-actively emailing attendees before to obtain information, seems a good idea to keep everything flowing nicely.

We’re looking to turn up around 11am/midday - cannot wait to get through the gates! Very interested when the busier times usually are, i imagine from 12-4 will be the busiest probably

I tend to arrive around lunch time normally and there is always plenty of space in all areas, not planning to arrive any earlier this year but the excitement might get the better of us. Last time out I had space for about three more tents around me all weekend so don't think anyone will struggle to find a spot.
