Hi guys, just need your advice - I'm possibly going to Boomtown Fair this year, but if I did I would be going on my own. This is a slightly scary prospect as it's quite a long festy (4 nights), and whilst I'm not worried on the lonely side of things (I'll meet people and am quite happy on my own), I still feel slightly concerned possibly about safety or if something went wrong. I've gone to plenty of festivals before and I'd be in the family camping as I feel that's more secure, but has anyone ever gone to a festival on their own before? How was it? Or, if not, would you?
Going to a festival on my own... Watch

I went to Sonisphere on my own back in 09 but what I did was go on some forums first and found there were a fair few people going solo so we did a bit of a meety-uppy.
The thing about festivals (and Boomtown I think would be especially good for this) is that you can chat to people and make new friends without people thinking you're a weirdo. If you're worried that someone might think that just tell them you've hot split up from your friends. Chat to strangers, friendly looking ones, and enjoy the fact that you don't have to keep an eye on drunken/drugged up friends.
Edit: sorry kinda glanced over, re: the safety thing make sure you've got your own back. Try not to get off your face if that's your style and if it is keep it near the first aid tent! I've picked up a complete stranger who was passed out on a path at Reading Festival and dragged her to the medics - people will help you out if you need it.Last edited by AnnaHarry; 21-04-2013 at 18:27.
