true - neil's very good but he's admitted having more difficulty than the last few years getting hold of decent rumours.

(ps bear in mind that the rumoured lineups on e-fests cover more than one page (4 in the case of glasto, 2 in the case of reading)

yeah, one of the rumours was even thanks to my e-mail

The offspring said 'see you in the summer' at their show, reading is there sort of fest, they played there 2 years ago, i can't see them touring again this year so it makes sense

so this is why i sent it

Also by my count there are 8 votes for going to Glasto (Mattg, Ollie, me, 2-headed monk, lopinloopy, moochy and riz)
and 4 votes for reading (sillynarb2, loppy lou, mad caddie and wiffmaster)
I would vote for Glastonbury because its more my type of music. However if you're into heavier stuff, then Reading is the better festival.

Oh and PQ - Reading is not in a carpark - its in a field by the Thames where they normally keep cows! There is a carpark for the leisure centre next door, but thats about it. Oh and the inductrial estate. But is actually in a feild!

Personally I am going to V though, as the first day of Glasto clashes with the day i'm going to see the Chili's in Hyde Park.

By heavier stuff its not going to be all heavy metal is it? That would be shear hell, stuff like Morrisey Oasis or White Stripes I can handle.

Says more than I ever could

I know Reading isn't really a carpark - but at the same time it's not somewhere as beautiful as Worthy Farm either.

They have (apparently) The White Stripes, THe Darkness...and then it goes into the realms of Blink 182 and other stuff on the ska/metal side. I wouldn't recommend Reading if you are just into indie stuff.

last year you had indie such as Blur, OkGO and franz ferdinand, Muse(guess we can call them indie)

you will also have White Stripes and the Darkness

you do get heavy bands, e.g Metallica, Slipknot, Linkin PArk

then the poppier stuff like Offspring, blink 182, New Found Glory etc

whereas you're unlikely to find any band which has a mosh-pit type following playing at Glastonbury - Mr Eavis got very scared of these things after Roskilde (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/814116.stm ) and the dangerous overcrowding in Glasto 2000.

yeah when things get mad and heavy it can be scary

Ataris at Reading last year was mental, way too many people in the smallest tent, it was mental, i know people did faint in that 1 but it was scary stuff towards the end, especialy if you end up at the bottom of a massive crush(like i did there )

luckily most people at concerts are friendly and help you up straight as they knock you down

AFAIK the name on the card does not need to match the name on the ticket (although I have a feeling that the tickets will be sent to the cardholders address).

Every ticket needs to have a name and address assigned to it when purchased and if there are 2 tickets per card then that means at least half the tickets won't be in the cardholders name.

I think the only possible problem is if you were buying over the phone and they asked to speak to the cardholder - you just need to make sure your parents are around that night.

(btw I would *not* attempt to buy tickets solely over the internet - aloud.com took up to 3 hours to be accessible last year....net+phone seems like the best option)
