anyone else think they aint gonna give away freebees tics again?
i really wanna go but i have ZERO cash.
i caved and bought a ticket. there is NO WAY i'm missing Daft Punk.
are you not coming to our gig?
afters! don't worry, tis aaaaaaaaall taken care of :)
have you got their emails....???
just use the myspace to message everyone!
i'm such a gay
So gonna have to buy one I guess
I'll probably end up buying one.
it so sucks. i will never be able to see daft punk ever again!
you save a tenner if not more cos of fees.
it was posted Saturday though so they might be gone.
they are still available
to pick them up. Fuck that.
the daft punk day could be cancelled because they havent sold nearly enough tickets :S
if that gets canelled and Faithless goes ahread there is NO JUSTICE!
if they didnt sell enough tickets they'll have to give em away non?
and that's only because people are waiting for free ones! they should make an announcement.
my friend works for a company promoting it and apparently only the kaisers day is selling well
DAMN YOU PLEBS, DAMN YOU.
so anyone who is anyone will have no money for little hyde park type events
did you hear that? this would be bad
a mate with insider info!
I spent all last night entering roskilde and glastonbury competitions...
the dutch email I had to send the answer to didn't work.. it got bounced back this morning :(
really don't wanna pay £40..but REALLY want to go. by Friday if nothing comes about I suppose I'll have to cave...
but I shall sell them on nearer the time to those true fans who missed out....
sell one to Bamos for cheaps please so I don't just have to hang out with my sister!
Really want to see queens of the stone age now after hearing era vulgaris. it is fantastic.
to afford ALL the fun. I don't enter competitions very often but I have to win this. Urrgh.
Going to go and check Scarlet Mist or whatever it's called again..
i think there are more tickets being sold on saturday. You have to be registered though
could you get tickets for more than one day?
i did last year. i want to see faithless.
for £20, but i really want to go to the kaisers day(despite despising the kaisers) because some of the bill is ace.
hopefully get some free love from 02
forgetting how shit it was last year. hmm.
i only went on the massive attack day, but i only had some fun because i was plastered by the time i got there
and was horrifically hungover so wasn't in a drinking mood. Massive Attack was great. The crowd were not.
but i couldn't get into the tent for anything, i couldn't move around and as you say the crowed ARGH!!!
terrible sound, terrible people and terrible bands (sfa excepted)
and the only reason i went really
i......... don't know why.
but it will be still be FUN TIMES I'm sure...
You want to go, go and buy a ticket. Stop waiting around for handouts.
If Daft Punk get pulled, I blame you.
you should blame o2 for shooting themselves in the foot by handing out free tickets for the two years since the festival's inception.
never heard of them handing out free tickets before now. How do you come across them?
to either the o2 website or livenation or something. You signed up, selected the day you wanted to go and then they sent two free tickets to that date. Now nobody wants to buy a ticket in case they do it again.
i mean, it's next week.
but I can't think straight I'm too angry about emma ruining it for everyone.
i don't even know you but i hate you for dangling fun in front of my face and taking it away and eating it. the carrot.
doesn't exist this year, no?
at what time did it happen last year and how did you find out about this secret link to free world?
I think it was around 2/3 weeks before the festival. So yeah, not looking likely.
more reason to buy a ticket for the one time you'll be able to see them this year / ever?!?!
this is an entire thread about people complaining that there's no free tickets to a large-scale outdoor event.
It's like when motorists complain about parking charges or speeding tickets when they've parked in the wrong place or gone over the speed limit.
it's simply because they were free at one point and now seemingly not so.
once you're in your in so you are forced to buy drink in there as you can't take it in. they would recoup any money lost on their overpriced refreshments.
I don't think it's too much to ask for free-ness at all. they must make money from it regardless.
that is true. But Live Nation shot themselves in the foot by giving away so many cheap/free tickets in previous years really.
Wireless is no more corporate than Reading really, it's a fun day out. I just don't like any of the bands enough to go this year.
but if you want to see it as such then that's up to you. it's more people wondering if they're going to do the free ticket thing again. o2 and livenation can hardly complain though, they've created this situation.
http://www.applausestore.com/Site/ though it's only on saturday. you need to go to some t4 thing or something: it says this:
THIS IS INCREDIBLE!!!
You are invited to join T4 for a very intimate PRE-FESTIVAL T4 SPECIAL broadcast live on Saturday 16th June 2007.
You will be part of the studio audience (on location in Hyde Park itself) for this amazing live show featuring interviews and exclusive performances from current chart acts, direct from the festival.
After the the show you will then be free to join the festival...how good is that! The best part is that its totally FREE!
The O2 WIRELESS FESTIVAL 2007 features 5 stages of live music with headline acts including: DAFT PUNK, LCD SOUNDSYTEM, KLAXONS, CSS, PLAN B, CALVIN HARRIS, NEW YOUND PONY CLUB, SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO, DATAROCK, DIGITALISM, MUTEMATH, METRONOMY, SHY CHILD, LOU RHODES, SKYE (from Morcheeba), LUCKY JIM, NATTY, ROSIE ODDIE, plus many more.
THIS IS A VERY SPECIAL INVITATION AND TICKETS ARE ALREADY VERY LIMITED. RESERVE YOURS RIGHT NOW!
it seems like i have a free ticket, though there must be some catch, and i don't know if i would rather see junkplannet, aela et all or daftpunk, who i think i might have seen before
which, is the best plan.
ok, so maybe not see everyone. but see people.
so you will get to the windmill at 23:30/00:00, so no bands, but a good boogie
10 or something stupid last year
i sorta want to go to both the white stripes and daft punk days.
but wireless is SO shit, i just don't want to pay for it.
but i can't belive it's that easy. maybe the twang are at the T4 thing and i'll HAVE to sit through that
that i'll give some thought to..
except for the retard alexa chung repeats.
of any festival i've ever been to - bland and sterile, no heart or soul. and i go to Reading!
And I'd happily pay 40 quid to do it. Problem is, I get paid on the 16th, and I really am too poor to spend £40 before then. Anybody know if you can turn up on the day and get tickets that way?
Also, anyone know what time the whole shebang 'kicks off'? I work until 1pm, and that's in Southend. I don't reckon I'd be at Hyde Park until half two at the earliest :(
the night before last time and had to pick it up there, and i'm 96% certain they had tickets on sale.
They wouldn't DARE start this shit without me in attendance. This is all positive news!
Is it lame of me to go to a Wireless festival on my own? My mates have dropped out, but I do have the possibility of meeting my friend Kira and her mates there. A day with a group of pissed and excitable women inevitably awaits :(
Emma, Tom and Steve? They all possess lovely names, but would they be particularly enthralled at the idea of having some loner following them around all day?
But seriously... Steve?
Is that some kind of weird Irish colloquialism?
that I will take you up on this. I don't much fancy standing getting drunk on my own all day
that I will be going too
oh yeah and what exactly is a blind baby animal?
And I don't think they even like me that much anyway, due to my 'history' with Kira
The whole festival is just one big billboard for advertising.
But still, Daft Punk. Totally worth it.
And they sold Brothers pear cider last time.
FREE tickets? Whats the catch?
Or, was the catch. If they do it this year I'm all over it like a wet flannel.
