Had a barbecue with them today, said they were buying bottles of water wholesale for 17p a pop then selling them for £2.50 a piece and they sold 8 boxes in a day.

Don't know about yellow, but it kicked off a bit in Purple last night, fires, gas cannisters, tents being ripped down and set alight (notwithstanding any people or possessions inside), security getting abused and then duly giving it back to a few random appropriately sized people. This seemed to be conducted with an increased enthusiasm when whilst the (scottish) security stewards were trying to put out a fire, the chanting changed from 'burn more shit', to 'burn more scots'.
People were still 'playing' the bins when I left at 7 this morning.

yellow was pretty much the same, we had two massive bonfires over the other side and all manner of things were being thrown on them, and same with the exploding stuff too. My mates little brother said all the security (scottish) are people on parole but i don't really know how true that is haha. I could hear the bins being played at half 5 when i woke up, it was quite quiet this morning except the people by us hadn't slept and they went hunting for pills and drink at 9am. we lost nearly 99% of our tent pegs Laughing out loud

Yellow wasnt too bad last night, from what i heard other areas were alot worse.

Purple sounds well Laughing out loud, glad i wasnt there, was happy to get through the night alive tbh haha

Saw some big fires in the distance and huge explosions too, heard some one on the tent saying their tent and others around were destroyed by people

Homer old boy, you must have realised it was going to be a little rambunctious at this get together?

The riots and total anarchy is why I will never camp again. (outside of white)

Ha ha, I had a friend (female) who, like Homer hid in a tent on seeing/hearing all that was going on. We just crammed all the passed out/sleeping into one tent away from the road, and kept an eye on it.

Didn't realise you guys were going. Didn't pick up a ticket myself till the night before. Next years are on sale already. As with last year though i'll sleep on them and the April general sale. Only to panic 3 days before when I decide I want to go but don't want to pay more than face value for my ticket.
