I am thinking of selling my leeds weekend ticket. Basically results and stuff didn't go well so I am in limbo atm and leeds festival hasn't come around at the right time. Anybody interested in buying it or know someone who would be ? How much are you prepared to pay?
Somebody must know someone who would like to go to leeds festival!

If you haven't heard them already, there's a decent band worth checking out who are playing low down on the Festival Republic stage. There was a review of their album today in The Times.

The XX

IMO, they'll be pretty big next year.

Oh and a question for all the Reading folks... is it true you don't have any of the late night entertainment like the duracell tent and trangressive records DJ sets?
We have the silent disco, funfair, film showings and Club NME.

I basically bought everything I need but insect repellent
Ive never noticed many insects there at all. They seem to hate all the smoke created around the campsites.

Think I will be spending a lot of time at the Festival Republic stage this year; The xx, The Joy Formidable, The Big Pink, White Denim are ones I'm particularly hoping to see.

I just don't want to risk it. I'm very allergic to insect bites and whenever I get them they swell and ache like hell.

I've just got back from a holiday, not got anything prepared, and still have to sell two spare tickets. Should be fun.

For Leeds it isn't. For Reading you need some sort of permit, I believe, but with Leeds you just park wherever without having to sort things in advance.

Can I get on one of the National Express coaches to Reading by buying tickets at the station? Or are they only for the people with the Reading/Coach tickets?

i don't think you will be able to do that, people who have coach tickets pick up there weekend tickets on the coach and it'll probably be full...

Can I just remind you that advertising isn't allowed so if you do have tickets to sell you need to do it off-TSR. I'd rather not be handing out anymore warnings for advertising :p:

Has anyone got the shuttle bus from leeds station to bramham park before? We went by car last year and it was an absolute nightmare - a journey that usually takes about 40 minutes took over 5 hours, so not something I want to repeat. Apparently they start at 8am - anyone have a vague idea how long the queues are?

Oh dear.
One of my friends has just found out she's supposed to be working on Thursday. She [a] owns the tent we're using, and [b] is the only one who knows how to put up a tent.

>_<
