    When i last went to Camp Bestival, they had a tannoy speaker thing at 8AM!!! after being up late and it was the worst thing ever, did they have this at Bestival???
    No.....last year I was foolish enough to camp right next to the wishing tree (but so good because could dance til silly times then literally fall into tent!), but if you camped a bit further away/in the centre of one of the fields, then it was fine; reasonably quiet (as festivals go!) Also love it because it feels so safe, you're not constantly worrying about anything you've left in your tent, always a plus!

    I thought this until I got my bag and all my alcohol stolen last year thankfully no valuables! to be honest though, it was my fault as I was camped pretty much where you were right on the main path so I was asking for it, it's always a bit of a lucky dip when you're in those kinds of areas.

    I was literally right on the path, but in a way, that made it feel even safer, because there was a constant stream of people passing (didn't even have the tent fallen on too much!) I was camped with loads of friends though.....like 10 tents or so, so I suppose that made it better; there was pretty much always there who (hopefully!) would've realised if someone random was going into our tents....

    Yeah, I was just slightly in from it and about a couple of tents away from our main group of friends so pretty vulnerable. We were also right next to this awesome but very attention-drawing painted tent so I guess people were drawn in :p: it's so annoying because bestival is usually so happy and safe. Still, going this year and can't wait

    Were you in the first field?.....Maybe blue? Because I was just down from an amazing painted tent which was right on the path; I think maybe it had a caterpillar or something on it. So useful for finding tent when coming back at about 3!

    Used to be Leeds but the music has taken a severe downhill turn for me.

    Download is high on my list as I love the music and the banter, BUTTSCRATCHER anyone?

    But my fav has to be Big Chill it was such a lovely chilled atmosphere, you just do what you like and everyone is dead nice. I prefer the music at DL but the crowds at Big Chill were never too packed, no push & shove and everyone just wants a good time. Sadly at DL you get the passionate rockers littered with chavs and dickheads. :sad:

    02 Wireless was good fun this year but I prefer a camping festival.

    I want to try Bestival next year. :ahee:

    I'm looking forward to Buttscratcherrrr! all over again this year. I get tempted to shout out when I get back to London but I attracted stares last time.

    I'd say V Fest partly because it's the only festival I've been to and partly because it's more of my type of music.

    Although that said I'd like to go to creamfields but doubt I'd get on with the people there

    Offset Festival was really good, but I don't think it's running this year, so I'm going to be stewarding at:

    Probably my favourite line-up of all small festivals (or ones that I know). Had a good line-up last year as well. If you get the chance to check out Brontide, do.

    I love Brontide. I saw them as a support for Rolo Tomassi last year.

    All about bestival, such a cool atmosphere, especially on the saturday night when everyone is in fancy dress, highlight of the festival last year was seeing a bloke in a monkey costume chasing a guy in a banana suit around the dance tent for about an hour. Everyone is so chilled out and nice, you don't get any of the tension you get at R+L. Its nice that the dance tent an lots of the smaller stages have things on until about 5 in the morning so theres always suff to do. Plus the line up is always really varied and cool. Cant recommend it enough.

    The only one I've ever been to was Woodford Folk Festival in Oz. Amazing! Does involve going to Australia, though...

    Beautiful Days. It's a really nice relaxed atmosphere and it's a big enough place with enough going on to keep you entertained for a whole weekend but it's not big enough to get lost or for you to have to worry about getting separated from friends. Also the music is really good without being mainstream and it's more interesting hearing new music than the same old stuff that's played on the radio all the time. Also it's not a total rip off either.

    Boomtown fair; it wasn't massive and too commercial, but still big enough to attract some decent acts. Such an array of weird and wonderful people there too and they had some awesome stages and other things set up. Can't wait to go again this year!
