It will be my first time there...Has anyone been before?
It was very hot.
BMI lost all my clothes so I bought a whole new wardrobe from H&M in 2 hours.
We got there on, like Thursday or whenever, but the site was mega full already.
It was a blessing in disguise to be a little bit off the beaten track cos by the end it was like some sort of armageddon when we left.
No glass or cans allowed into the stages arena so red wine in cartons = best drink to take into the arena. Gets warm and is like mulled vino.
They're very well organised with the in/out/queueing for the 'bit at the front of the crowd' with limited entry.
Go swimming in the lake.
Did I mention armageddon? They party hard. Harder than the toilets being set on fire and melted to the ground at Leeds. Harder than alco-marathoners at T in the Park.
The skate/TV area was good for watching the footy. Saw England go out to Portugal. Everyone laughed.
They go for it big time on the refunds on bottles. There's a whole sub-economy of it. It's all about the mini-trolley for carrying your crates around.
You'll never have seen so many girls brazenly crouching against the fence for a widdle. It takes a short while to get used to the uprontness of it.
They're all psycho mentalists, but in a good way rather than a pishedupslightlyaggro way.
Another reason to <3 Europe.
