leeds tomorrow Cool

best colour to camp in? red is apparently good, not too far from the main arena and a perfect distance to watch the riots/fires in red, haven't been before though.

& how tight are they on weed?

i've experienced all apart from orange and i can safely say yellow is the best. it's not as rough as people make out and it's so close to the arena. red is ok but the atmosphere isn't close to yellow.

if they find it they will take it off you so put it in your shoe or hide it in a prigles tin etc. how much weed are you taking out of interest?

I had a really great time at V, but the music wasn't great, fatboy slim was brilliant on the sunday night, and asher roth was pretty good too. I thought oasis were shit. Im trying to get tickets for leeds now, anyone know how safe ebay is? I have found a ticket for 150 and the woman has 3 feedback as a buyer, and a picture with the ticket and ticketmaster slip. Do many people sneak in to festivals? 4 of my mates this year snook in an pulled it off, all weekend camping as well.

V was so tight on drugs, they had sniffer dogs waiting with a good 10-15 police officers by the entry/ exit to the arena and by the entry to the whole place, so many people were getting caught. My mate got cautioned for having a spliff, had to go back and fill in forms and everything.

Anyone planning on camping at Reading fest, i'd get here quick. The great unwashed are already arriving by the 1000s.
From the office i can see the camp sites filling fast, all best spots will be gone by end of today/tommorrow lunch.
Noble Fact.

Freelance, so I work all over. Currently working on Richfield Av, (No camera though) would be an easy walk to work from home except for the fucking festival bastards.

The Dogs got me twice, had nothing on me at all but they did the swab thing and found traces of coke on me so had to be searched the 1st time, probably was just traces on an old note.
