See my post above somewhere.

It is possible to rent a tent with equipment.

We only need a sleeping bag, everything else is already there - will probably just take our own from the UK but they take up a lot of hand luggage room

It's probably a long shot but there is a shop with sporting goods for cyclists just a few meters from the entrance of RW. Maybe it's worth giving them a call to ask if they sell sleeping bags:

Be aware that you purchase the right voucher for your breakfast.

There is a difference between the Hive resort, the Hive myspace and the Hive (regular campsite).

For the last one the breakvocuher cost 50 euros for 4 breakfasts.

For a festival it's not cheap, it's not expensive.

My post above is for the regular campsite.

Seems the voucher is for use at the Waxbar in Central Park. You'd get this voucher regardless of which area you're in, and use it there.

I'm getting them. Sounds like it saves a lot of hassle. Anyone know what other breakfast options are available?

Bought one of the pre-setup tents but we're thinking of buying a sleeping bag from Sports Direct in Leuven when we get there. Is that a bad idea, is everyone gonna be thinking the same thing? 

We've gone for that too. We're taking our sleeping bags as we're going on the coach, but I'm wondering what to do about pillows? Do they supply them?

Don't think so, will be a rolled up hoodie situation for us probably. Beats a floor mat anyway.

Thanks. Last time I camped I took small pillows from Blacks that were so bad I just folded my jeans and lay on those.

You can get some decent sleeping bags (lightweight and ultralight weight) along with pillows that compress down to a very small size, especially as the weather is okay. I travel from the UK by plane with just a backpack (usually have a camping chair bungee corded to the front). Although I've bought a foldable chair this year which breaks down to nothing. The tent is usually the pain but you guys don't have that issue. I'm an absolute geek about this stuff though, although I don't spend too much on stuff.

Where can I find times from Leuven to Festival?

Not sure if there is a timetable, but the buses go very frequently at least in the morning, every few minutes.

The hive Parking area is next to the The Hive.

I'll arrive on the 29th (Wednesday) and I'll sleep in a hotel right next to Gara Midi station, the next morning I want to go to Leuven and I don't even know what time I should choose

You can arrive in Leuven whenever on Thursday, as the buses leave constantly. They fill them up and off they go.

Something I've been pondering myself, its difficult to know. Is there a way to reserve then pick it up? In previous years of the festival there was a dedicated camping shop right in the Hive (called Tentenzo), it was very handy. You could pre-order your camping equipment then pick it up when you arrived. The same service does not seem to be available this year, so looks like I'm lugging a tent, sleeping bag, mat etc on a plane from Ireland 😢

Saaaame. Although I'm getting my tent in Brussels on the Tuesday

Don’t think there’s a thread, but anyone was at Live is Live yesterday?

Didn’t know what to expect but once you forget you’re in the horrendous Zeebrugge (they managed to make the location look quite nice) and get used to the sand, I have to say it was a pleasant surprise.

I thought dEUS was really good and deserved 90 minutes. Wilco a bit long but a few great moments (Impossible Germany!). 

The National was outstanding. No Vanderlyle though, gutted!

Free sunscreen was top notch. There’s room for improvment in terms of queues (Food was a bit of a disaster between dEUS and Wilco, had to give up), and I hate those VIP areas at the front, but overall a nice experience.

Anyone know if we can show tickets on mobile this year or do we still have to print them like it's 2002?

Haven't been to RW recently but surely to god they haven't insisted on printed tickets up to now?

Can anyone find the price for the Hive parking anywhere? Used to be €15 cash when you entered.

Don't leave it too late, the bus takes about 45 minutes about a 10 min walk to the hive. The earlier you are there the easier it will be to find a place for your tent.

Price for the Hive parking is 20 euros when you arrive on Wednesday, 15 euros when you arrive on Thursday.

You have to pay cash and if you wanna leave the parking for instance on Saturdaymorning and come back a few hours later, you have to pay the parking fee again.

Posted this in the wrong forum just now (D'oh!)

So it works out that, if purchased in advance, One Food/Drink Voucher costs €3.25. (€65 for 20 Vouchers).

I'm guessing then that it will be 2 x vouchers (€6.50) for a small beer?

At Download Festival last weekend, it was £6.50 for a large beer?

I would love for it to be 1 x voucher but can't see it but maybe I'm just being pessimistic?

Does anybody think differently?
