    I’ve got mine, really not happy about the cost of the campervan tickets, so that’s making me question whether I actually want to go now.

    Part 2 bizarre wanking accident

    Got a ticket for my son, tried for earlybirds but there were so many options so I've no idea what I ended up with. He'll be chuffed he's going though.

    Received an email update for crew from Boomtown, seems things arent so rosy on the logistical/licensing/financial side of things. Whilst they are in no way suggesting Boomtown 2018 will not be going ahead (it will be), its clear last year fucked them a bit in terms of the build in terrible weather and the long queues to get in, which not only pissed off a lot of people, but annoyed the authorities. Ironically, if the authorities hadnt insisted on the search procedures, it wouldnt have been a problem.

    I reckon had there been another death last year, which thankfully there wasnt, there would be no Boomtown this year. And whilst ive ignored these rumours up until now, i now wouldnt be shocked if this is the last one in its current location, Matterly Bowl.

    dervish if you flibble when you wibble, don't wobble

    I'd be surprised too, no idea how the farmer manages to put quite so many events on on his farmland.
