Am already planning my summer in a faintly sad way... Is it usually the last weekend of July, or what?
I meant 'idea'. Being an English student doesn't make me any less of a tard.
I presume you meant "'tard".
to know this piece of information as it is likely to be my only festival appearance of the summer
truck havent posted it on the website, I checked a lil while ago.
not only will it be my only festival, but my first truck too. So excited!
they sell ALE
and have WASPS
they have bands too
and too many DiS people
like a whole 2% of the crowd or something
the banana smooooothies OH YES.
looking at photos of truck a couple of days ago and found a grand one of you and i dressed in banana hats
htey cast marvellous silhouettes on people, didn't they? Ah, blissful memories...
judging by the recent ones I think it's either going to be 22nd and 23rd of July or the 29th and 30th of July. I'm guessing the former though I don't really know for certain.
In other news a post on the offical message board says tickets go on sale on the 1st of February.
that isn't an official post..
i've been to the meredith music festival, though back in 1998. much fun indeed, in a tiny ampitheatre in the middle of nowhere.
did you enter the meredith gift run?
its a good festival though. i saw augie march, the make up, something about kate, custard and even when i went. it was the year of meredoof, and finding myself drunkenly pissing myself at merrick and rosso.
and i learnt to never mix victoria bitter with carlton and melbourne bitters....evil.
did you hear?
actually go to this this time. Hurrah. I will bring some cider.
I now HAVE to go!
but i might not camp there as its less than 5 miles from my parental home.
but have a horrible feeling it'll clash with benicassim. :(
Benicassim is usually first week of August, innit?
it's the 20-24th july. right in the middle of the heatwave season :D
glastonbury isn't bad
If it wasn't full of shit bands from Radio 1.
and fake city-hippies who use the phrase "but it's Glasters".
do i hear you are offering your parental home as a B&B for any DiSers not wanting to camp? ;)
how much truck weekend tickets cost last year?
Bestival tickets are about Â£105, btw
i believe were in the region of Â£30-35 each.
monpot promised me he'd touch me if i did.
for a day?
it's saturday / sunday + camping on the saturday night. it's meant to be only, but (at least in the 2yrs i've gone) don't seem to do anything to people who stay on the sunday night
saturday / sunday
saturday & sunday
why would you get a ticket that allowed you overnight but not for the next day?
in the ballpark of Â£40ish this year
licensing fees and stuff like that are eating into the budget, still cheaper than most festivals around though.
I love Truck. LOVE.
we should both try and be less shy this time, 'Pig.
what tee shirts to wear though? May have to think of something EVEN BETTER this year.
god i was drunk.
Well, Thommo, you seemed chatty enough for me. As for you though 'Pig. Must try harder!
I'm having fuzzy-warm flashbacks now.
I'm off to call someone a "gayer".
and try and get into this whole 'music' thing
i have felt better...:P
He was the one molesting me! Twice!
See how quickly he ran off when I told him I'd keep an eye on him? Rumbled!
i mean, that stuff doesn't drink itself.
just pretend it's Truck now? i'll stash up on sherbet and meet you at the barn.
a non-stop, uber-rocking disco party no less.
"Behind the barn" was where you'd go to 'cop off' with girls.
Well not me personally, but it's where the cool people went.
think i was talking about? :P
Anyway hush your mouth. i fancy some of that drum n' bass action before they chuck us out.
