yeh your not likely to experience any riot's/danger in orange ... but i spose you can walk to the fun (being fire and riots) and know your tent will be safe.

Suprisingly there was no major riots in Yellow Bubble this year...
Biggest trouble we had was the usual gas cannister explosions and people stealing gazebos and chairs. I've come to expect that though

After walking through the camp sites after my last shift, all i can say is thank god workers have their own campsite!!! Didnt like the level of security and having the pigs everywhere, i think i might stick to glasto next year, has a much more chilled out feel...
Feel EXACTLY the same. I really don't see the appeal. I was stewarding with Oxfam and we watched the explosions in yellow- just thinking wtf, how is this what a festival is supposed to be about?

Exactly.

If I can camp in the same place as I did this year then I will.

We were near to Tescos, only a really short walk from the arena, near enough the toilets to be able to get there if you need to go but far enough away not to be able to smell them, AND on the last night there was barely any rioting/danger.

Discussion of Jack's Mannequin is not permitted.

Some of us didn't see them.
