Dead innit?
Alt: I think my summer festival work is pretty much set in stone now, are you lot planning on attending any major concerts or festivals over the summer?

Altalt: dunno, something about drugs.
(, Wed 8 Apr 2015, 9:52, 166 replies, latest was 5 years ago)
i normally go to quite a few gigs a year and to something vanilla like v-fest or the big chill
but actually nothing booked as yet this year. hmm. got some nice holidays booked for the summer though. cotswolds with some old schoolfriends in may, mallorca with some law friends in june, different part of mallorca with the family in august, hopefully barbados at christmas. all good.

altalt: rugs? we need a new one, the budgies have pecked the hell out of the old one, stupid feathery little twats.

Ok, I assume you attend V at the Chelmsford site, I usually work at the stafford site....
So, are all the punters there grim as a fuck too?

I went to V there in 2001
It was rather entertaining as there was about 15 of us

V is easily the grimmest shitfest ever.
Dull mor music, pissed teen pricks, early curfews, shit food

I hope it's more entertaining as a worker than as a punter

It's a pain in the arse to be absolutely fair.
It was the first time I've ever seen a girl hike their skirt up and take a shit in the middle of a tent. It wasn't the last time I saw it either that weekend.

in a way it's doing a service to all the proper festivals
by keeping the dull bands and filthy plebs locked up

so thanks for that

we just go for the day
drinking booze in the sun with your mates is always going to be a good day out, even if most of the bands are really blah. i was excited about the stone roses, but the years have not been kind. i did enjoy laughing at how shit ian brown was though. poor sod can't sing a note these days.

the beyonce put on a good show, but fucking hell love, just stand still and sing, stop making us wait in the rain whilst you change costumes for the 30th time in a 30 min set.
