where is everyone camping?anyone fancy a dis meet up?obviously at night so were all hammered and really friendly
I've done the oxegen thing for a few years, and have been advised strongly against Leeds, but a mate had a spare ticket and the line-up looks alright, plenty of decent stuff! Wheres best place to camp then, I know the obvious places to avoid, is there anywhere thats realy good to camp?
thats probably the place youve eben told to avoid! but its not that bad.just people getting off their faces as it were
I also noticed Yellow Bubble had loads of squaddie types. I camped in Orange not too far from the rides. Was alright till the last night when out Gazebo was destroyed and some tents got slashed.
But yeah good fun.
I'm not going this year (as far as I know) but one piece of advice for the toilets; bring a bin bag with you.
hahaha :D But yeah, we had some unpleasant encounters. With the amount of people there its inevitable you will meet cunt'oles. The worst one was a guy with an ankle tag who tried to nut my mate when he was trying to retrieve my 3D Glasses
there were a few horror stories of fire related injuries
Fairly near to the arena (10 min walk), near (but not too near) to toilets and water, far away from yellow bubble and all the cunts that are there - it's just people being mashed and violent from my experience.
The last time I went was 2005 when on the sunday night everyone went ape-shit and destroyed everything! and set everything on fire. I take it this always happens on the sunday night?
There was a proper riot squad & everything!!
When I've been, there's been fires etc on the SUnday night but it's pretty easy to just stay at your camp and get drunk. You can see the twatish fire starting/tent lobbing miles off so just stay away.
i shall be there this year
I've camped in the Red Area for the past couple of years, near the toilet bit (but not too near, tends to smell around there..)
but I only live 15 minutes drive away so will not be camping, mmm my own bed!
people who live in a certain radius of the site can apply for free tickets?
Mind you Bramham Park is not really that near anywhere. That might have been true when it was at Temple Newsam when there were residential areas quite near.
I've done it for the last two years, so if I find out that I could have got free/discounted tickets I won't be happy!!
Anyone who lives in Thorner which is a village very close by definitely get free tickets, as i worked with someone from there. Don't know if there is anywhere else close by that is the same
and I am going to try and sneak in even though I dont have a ticket which is actually not as hard as it seems. Yellow bubble is easily the best place to camp as its only 2 mins walk from the arena. Ireally dont understand why people camp in red, its so far away.
im working as a Green messenger. come say hi if you see any of us. recycle and don't burn your tent or ill kick you in the face.
dis meet up sounds good tho.
Sounds a bit hectic, silly kids...
looks like its slim DiS pickings though.
you'll be the only one there
i was in orange last year and will be again this year
we were camped literally right next to a gazebo as well, may be the same as above haha
and that blue fire was ridiculous, picnic benches and just random tents going in. Someone went to throw in a bench, it exploded right in his face
Me and alcxxk and laura_wolf and Dalkin had a blast.
anyone got any face value tickets?
There are always some at reading, even though the organisers would never tell you that. Either that or hold out until people actually receive their tickets (about 2 weeks before) and several hundred will appear on ebay for less than cost price.
It'd be a good opportunity to take some stuff up to uni beforehand.
Hope there are tix! It's strange how out of all the the indie, niche, new and interesting festivals around this summer I have settled on perhaps the most standard of them all. Never been though so should be a good glo-pen inhaling, walllet devestating experience.
Not sure whether it would be the same for tickets on the door, but I reckon it should be the same with regards to people selling them on ebay.
