This is a question Festivals II

It's that time of year again

I was at a free festival outside Worthing in the early 90s, expounds Richard mcbeef off the internet. A bloke went mental on the dancefloor and started hitting people. He was restrained, calmed down, but then did it again, a good three times more. Eventually he was pursued around the arena by an ever-growing number of people, like in Benny Hill. He was chased into a massive nettle patch and ended up tied to a chair.

Tell us your festival experiences.

Glastonbury '95
I was on the dole in Leeds with no money and only 3 cans of baked beans left - but some friends were driving down to the Festival in their hippy van to bunk over the fence so I thought 'Fuck It - might as well be skint and hungry at Glastonbury'. It was the worst weekend of my life.

My 3 cans of beans became 2 as some nob head nicked one off me as I was eating it.

Having no tent and nowhere to sleep was a bad idea. This was made worse by the fact that when I did find a 'quiet' spot and try to kip next to some bins, I was woken up by a stranger shouting with glee after finding a carrier bag filled with drugs next to my head.

I could have done with those. Starving, sleep deprived and sober is a shit way to enjoy a festival.

In the days before mobiles it was very easy to get lost. I spent the 3 days wandering about in a hungry knackered stupor with no idea where my handful of friends were.

Oasis headlined. They were fucking shit. I actually walked off - preferring my desperate hungry solitude to their dreadful performance.

I did see some lovely naked breasts though when I was sat at the Tor :)

Hitch hiking home on the Monday morning was the best bit. A complete stranger gave me 10 fags. I got a lift to Stone Henge after 2 seconds of putting my thumb out and I spent 2 days in the sunshine meandering back to Leeds. I had to beg for 20 pence outside a remote petrol station to buy a Mars Bar though.

TL;DR - I've never been back.

The Tor is about ten miles away from the festival. Did you take binoculars or sutin?

Good point - Just googled it. Can't have been the Tor - it was a massive stone monument on top of a mound though. Maybe part of the stone circle? It was a LONG time ago......

You mean those fairly small rocks half way up that gentle slope?
For somebody who failed to find a bag of drugs, you seem to have a very drug-addled memory. Are you just making this up to seem less dreary?

The green fields

What about them?

They are green

That's a pretty unusual colour for fields. Are you sure you weren't tripping balls?

Try comprehending the reality of being sleep deprived and starving for 3 days - as mentioned in the post. Recollections two decades later may seem vague don't you think? Or are you deliberately being obtuse just because you're jealous that I've seen naked breasts?

I'm just wondering how you managed to dream up a massive stone monument on a mound when there are just a few standing stones on a grassy slope.
Don't get defensive, petal. Nobody cares if you make stuff up on the internet.

I think it was this: i1.cdnds.net/13/26/618x409/glastonbury-2013-pics.jpg

Like your penis?

bigger actually.

Fortunately nobody has seen it for twenty years.

Nice to see that you have something in common.

(, Thu 25 Jun 2015, 23:55, closed)
This is the internet. We've ALL seen naked breasts.

All you have to do is wander round the food vans as they are about to shut up
You can eat like a king for free at most festivals if you time it right

I don't see many kings skulking around burger vans these days, so I'll have to take your word for it.

Oasia are always shite
When protools isn't available in the studio to put them in tune and in time.

Being in tune and in time doesn't ever make shit songs good though

(, Fri 26 Jun 2015, 8:42, closed)
I like about two Waziz songs.

Yeah, but you're a soft cunt, who is very tolerant of mediocrity.

Alright, Jay.

Best as can be expected.

Heh heh
I did this in '98 or '99 but ten minutes after jumping the fence I bumped into a mate who had taken a spare tent, which he'd already pitched. Had an absolutely brilliant festival for about £20 all told.
