I’ll be over from Canadia, and thinking it’d be nice to make a full weekend of it. A handful of pals are going on the Saturday, but am on the fence about doing the whole weekend on my tod.
I think there’s a TP contingent playing, but I’ve really been crap at keeping an eye on all of that, or music/forums/much in general of late, had other stuff to deal with.
So, who’s going? Any tips about the site, etc?
@Mandarina @RichHall and @Rob.J will be spinning. Looks bloody ace, but sadly I’m otherwise engaged.
I’m playing. First time there.
I played last year although could only do the one night. It’s a great set up and really lovely people. No security, good vibes, the prefect party really. And the sound system is lovely. I can’t go this year but hopefully will next year. I stayed in a hotel about ten mins taxi ride away because I don’t do camping.
Pulled the trigger on a weekend ticket. Blagging a tent from friends who are camping on Fri/Sat, still need to sort out a hotel for the Sunday (and some other logistics for my overall trip) - but really looking forward to this!
I’m looking at doing the Friday.
Any recommendations on a nearby hotel?
There’s a premier inn about ten mins away by taxi, I think it’s premier inn Rugeley. We stayed there and it was fine. There is a travel lodge too in the same area.
Stayed at the Travelodge last year, it was passable.
The issue with staying off-site though is that taxi drivers won’t come to the site past 12, it might have even been 11, so you need to leave early.
Thanks. Apologies if this is a silly question but why won’t taxis come?
It’s a trek from the town to the festival site and they don’t need the hassle, especially late at night.
It’s probably a good idea to pre-book to make sure you get one.
Finally pulled the trigger myself as the diary was looking a bit sparse on the party font and its been on my radar from the start
