Bearpookie reminds me
Glastonbury in the early and mid-nineties, whilst getting over the fence was still de riguer and it wasn't entirely populated by arseholes and mud ... the police had an interesting problem, they couldn't be seen to condone drug use but they didn't want to be seen as heavy-handed either, and were mostly after serious dealers. Cue some bright spark going "Lads, I've got an idea..."

two police transits. all the doors and windows open. Four cops with supersoakers. "Smoking a fat one there, sir? Oh, it seems to have gone out and, oddly, you're all wet now"

Work of genius. The facial expressions of pissed-off crusties realising there was exactly fuck all they could do was truly wonderful. Made my day the first time I saw it.

I think it was the mid80s I went,
and as I say it still felt like a freebie.
Just having a look at their website, it's a bit pricey isn't it?
From 125 to hire a prepitched 2man
tent, takes teh piss rather.

they are pretty cool at Glastonbury, truth be told
or at least they were back then. Had some trouble in '97 when my mates tent was robbed with them both in it (best chance of actually finding valuables and very cunty and scary, especially for two youngish girls) and then when the stuff was recovered, one of the girls pill packets and the other's asthma medication had been taken to sell. The police found the thieves just as some other happy campers were beating them for robbing their tent. Police broke it up, took the thieves away and politely explained to the irate campers that "they'll have to go in the back of the van for an hour or so. Bad things happen to wankers in the back of our van"

got to respect that.
