I am saving now. Anyone want to join me?
Do we have a saving plan?
I can start one.
you saving for me too?

I went this year, paid for teh badge when they first came out.
I thought it was well worth the money. Saw 36 acts in 4 and a half days, all of them bar one (Midlake) were very good or bloody excellent.

Do it, I'm considering going again next year
