That looks like the 2000 line up with Slipknot and RATM - I am sure Slipknot are defunct anyway, I couldn't do a weekend at reading anymore, always been full of cunts

Edit: I just checked the Slipknot website and although they haven't released an album since 2005 they are recording a new one and talk about playing european festivals so you might get lucky and see them Laughing out loud

Just went into Brum HMV. Got 100 weekend Leeds tickets in, guy didnt know anything about ID or anything.

I imagine the smaller ones will have less. 100 tickets is prob like a few dutties and their families all queuing

ahh! I might do what I usually do. think about buying some, miss the boat, look on ebay nearer the time - think sod that im not paying that. get in using dubious methods.

we got walked in one year by a guy that had a "media pass" and each paid £30 or something, had to walk in one at a time as that was all he could do, didnt get a wristband or anything. claimed he had a really small record label which he kept running by getting people into festivals using the corporate passes that he got sent. I didnt believe him then and I dont belive him now.
