  2. boing!

    boing! hairy cheese eater

    That is actually a pretty damn good lineup! But I still can't get out of my head my notion that bestival would be like T4 in a field. :hmm:
     
  3. zenie

    zenie >^^<


    What's wrong with T4?

    Line ups ace :)
     
  4. bluestreak

    bluestreak HomosexualityIsStalin’sAtomBombtoDestroyAmerica


    That was my fear but I have been thoroughly disavowed of that and am going this year. I will let you know if I was lied to.
     
  5. bluestreak

    bluestreak HomosexualityIsStalin’sAtomBombtoDestroyAmerica

    To be honest, that line up doesn't really do it for me. There's enough there but nothing that would have been the difference between going and not going.
     
  6. zenie

    zenie >^^<

    I had the BEST time last year, even if I did disgrace myself :oops::D

    Hoping to work this year...I hope I manage to :(
     
  7. electrogirl

    electrogirl dignity is overrated

    That's pretty much my hopes and dreams.
     
  8. The_Reverend_M

    The_Reverend_M More bass, vicar?

    It's early days yet, bro ...


    mutha-friggin'-KRAFTWERK!!!! :D
     
  9. zenie

    zenie >^^<


    innit! The Germans are coming! :cool:

    There better be a wicked laser show :)
     
  10. bluestreak

    bluestreak HomosexualityIsStalin’sAtomBombtoDestroyAmerica


    Yeah, that's got my boat a-floatin'
     
  11. boing!

    boing! hairy cheese eater

    I'm a cynical, anti social bastard, I don't think I could stand to be in a field for too long with a load of teenagers wearing brightly coloured leggings and having fun. :p

    I'm sure its not that bad, I am judging it entirely on some tv coverage I saw (probably on T4 :rolleyes:) which is a bit unfair of me.
     
  12. electrogirl

    electrogirl dignity is overrated

    Why would that be bad though?

    Curmudgeonly.:mad:
     
  13. Sadken

    Sadken K-5 You -0

    Might wait till they announce who's on Sunday before seeing if i can get tix. Any rumours?
     
  14. zenie

    zenie >^^<

    Not that many teenagers when I went, or at least I didn't notice them being annoying. :D

    It is a dance festival though, not a hippy folk affair ;)

    ^^^^^^^
    Yeah, bit of an older crowd so you don't get the 15 year old kids away from the 'rents for the first time spazzy out on strongbow. I went Bestival for the first time last year & had more fun than I've had at any other festival in years, even with the mud. I like the lack of po-faced guitar bands & the genuine feeling of good will on the site.

    Also, I'm a bit of a sucker for fancy dress & bleepy dance music.
     
  16. The_Reverend_M

    The_Reverend_M More bass, vicar?

    Yep. It's mostly a festival for cainers. Everyone appears to be off their face (be it drunk or whatever else takes their fancy) all the time :D

    Real party atmosphere :cool:
     
  17. zenie

    zenie >^^<

    It's a legal rave in a field, with ace music all the time, and loads of extras, the bars are great! :cool:

    Lionman - your post could be me. :D
     
  18. William of Walworth

    William of Walworth Festographer

    That was definitely true when we went (in 2007) :)

    But any cainers there might happen to be, should watch out for coppers and dogs at the perimeter, the IoW branch of the Hampshire Police are notorious :hmm:

    We can't make it this year, our festie budget won't stretch to it. Line up looks good but it is expensive.
     
  19. The_Reverend_M

    The_Reverend_M More bass, vicar?

    Yep, tis true, plenty of sniffer dogs as you go in normally - though last year I must've timed it just right as there were none. Result :cool:
     
  20. bingiman

    bingiman Jah Gaza

    I am going to try and go to this...

    What seems like a long time ago I sang on a record that Sunday Best released, and Rob da Bank is a lovely man.
     
  21. bingiman

    bingiman Jah Gaza

    It is caner city though, so I don't think I will be taking the kids...
     
  22. moose

    moose with the voice of Roger Tilling

    Lordy - I'd go just for Kraftwerk, then go home again :D

    edit: I wish I hadn't looked at their website. They're doing 3 concerts at the Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg, which would be my idea of the Best Thing Ever, but they're sold out. I feel sick to the very pit of my stomach. :(
     
  23. bingiman

    bingiman Jah Gaza

    When you are getting old, it's just nice being around others who are caners :)
     
  24. boing!

    boing! hairy cheese eater

    does anyone know how fast this sold out last year?
     
  25. electrogirl

    electrogirl dignity is overrated

    I really want to go to this, I hope I have enough money before they sell out.

    Space Theme fancy dress! :cool:
     
  26. The_Reverend_M

    The_Reverend_M More bass, vicar?

    Normally fairly quick - tix have been on sale since November...
     
  27. keithy

    keithy or queefy

    i'm going to this :cool:
     
  28. bingiman

    In case anyone was stressing that campervan tickets have run out they seem to have issue another batch as I just bought one on ticketline

    i am now going to this. woo etc.
     
  30. Sunray

    Sunray Its sunny somewhere.

    Right, i'm starting to get the festival bug back a little after Glade.

    This is starting to be in my thoughts, especially given the fancy dress requirement.
