sure it's fine on a day ticket

trouble is there's practically no late night entertainment or djs, no decent food, nothing but corporate sponsored beer sold at the bars, you can't drink your own booze, shit sound restrictions and hordes of drunk 16 year olds who are so bored due to the lack of entertainment at night they spend the whole time being complete shitbags

not to mention that whilst festivals like glasto introduce new stuff every year, reading has doubled its ticket prices over the past decade without changing a thing

I am. I've been looking forward to it all summer just for Sigur Ros, everything else is an extra.

What you guys dressing up as? Will keep an eye out.

Saw Jonsi at Bestival a few years back and it was one of the best shows i've ever seen. Watching Sigur Ros might make me cry Oops

Going also, Fantastic Mr Fox for me.

The set times aren't out yet, usually as late as a day or two before. Rough day splits are on the sundaybest forum or efestivals though.

Why dont they lift the stages up 20 foot at events to make it easier for everyone to see? I cant see through peoples heads but I can (unlike dogs) look up a bit.

Had guest-list at Bestival a few years ago. Collecting at box office meant we skipped the entrance queue which was huge, could work out for you unless they've changed it.
