And still posting on the Thursday, did you camp stupidly late and end up stuck way out or are you that bored? All about rolling up on Tuesday night to get in the queue by sunrise, get a spot on Pennard Hill and chill in Greenfields all Weds.

That post was 16 days ago but I didn't leave till 10am on Thursday anyway, mates went Tuesday so I was at the tent set and ready to go by 1pm, was a piece of piss.

Highlights for me were De la soul, was a perfect combo of sun, Mandy and environment, DJ Pierre at block9, Criag Charles, Jon Hopkins and being of my but in NYC Downlow.

Aside from Outlook & Unknown, anyone recommend a small 2-3 day festival somewhere around Europe in September? Still considering to try and hook up a last minute thing to Outlook but might have left it a bit late.

Also, did anyone reach Worldwide then? Know someone pm'd me about it a while ago but have forgotten who. Was so good.

Dimensions is end of August I think, they've put it before Outlook this year. Would love to do both, have a link to potentially work both of em for 2 weeks doing the leg and heavy work prior and after the festivals. Only issue is getting time of work at such short notice but we'll see. 5 years have come and gone when I've wanted to go to Outlook and for whatever reason haven't made it. But if I miss out still wanna do something else next month.

Going dimensions this year, first time catch you out there if you do it! Lineup is too good to miss a 3rd year.

Oversaturated now, been like that for while. Ive not been to any for 4 years and the early ones I went to were excellent, well run, cheap and good crowd. You'd have to pay me to go to any now.

They will all start dropping off soon.

Honestly just go to Bestival if you can't reach Europe, DJ lineup seems to be the main focus these days.

Who's Jaers? I saw this though, the whole thing, sober. I was standing about 20 foot away on the beach when his lifeless body was pulled from the water and the futile attempts at resuscitation Cry Was not nice.

Just been informed that the job's a sales position selling festival tickets prior to the festival to locals/tourists and travellers in the surrounding areas, and selling boat party tickets during the festival etc. I'd have to do 3 x 8 hour shifts prior to each festival and 2 x 4 hour shifts during the festival.

Essentially, I get free camping, free entry to both festivals, airport transfers, meal vouchers and drinks. Plus bonuses if I manage to sell a load. I have to pay for the flights myself but I am given 3 festival tickets to sell for my own pocket to cover the cost of flights. Know enough people to shift them no problem, especially at less than face value which I definitely will just to get em gone. If all goes well I'll see what I can sort people out while I'm there, Tony etc Cool First task is to wrangle two weeks away from work after only just starting Roll Eyes
