    Worth taking flip flops for just walking around the campsite, but dont wear them into the arena, because your feet WILL get trampled. I wear flip flops all day in the campsite just wandering around and washing dishes etc...
    Ooh yes I always forget this! I was planning on wearing pumps but I learnt my lesson on that one at the o2 wireless, feet get trampled. I'm going to live in wellies or if it's nice, trainers.

    This year to Reading I'm taking less food, less clothes, more booze, and maybe a fancy dress costume. I can't waaaaaaait!

    I never seem to get through all my booze, so I'm gunna take the same amount of clothes as I always do, and maybe just a 75cl bottle of vodka, not a litre.

    Right the list:

    Obviously underwear, and at least 5 pairs of socks, inc hockey/football/ski socks!
    2 pairs of leggings
    Numerous pairs of tights (good to sleep in under tracky Bs if cold, and to protect against welly rash!)
    Flip flops
    A thick hoody
    A thin hoody/zippy/cardigan
    T shirts/vests for each day
    Tracky Bs for wearing in bed
    Skinny jeans (good for tucking into wellies!)
    Denim Skirt
    Denim/random short shorts for hot weather
    Bikini top (also helpful if trying to wash your hair under a tap..I'll meet you there on Saturday am!!)
    Some type of trainer (I'll be off to Primark to buy some cheap fake converse things)
    Sunglasses, and possibly a sunhat, although its likely to be taken off your head and chucked into the crowd...and I've never bothered!

    Then:
    Antibacterial hand gel (a god send!!)
    Bin bags (to sit on, to put wet clothes in...many uses!)
    Small first aid kit...just things like Immodium (poorly cooked meat + **** toilets = not fun), parecetemol, plasters
    Baby wipes
    Spare gas canisters

    Plus all camping stuff etc. Hope thats been of help! Dont forget your ticket!! (although mine hasnt come yet, damn it!)

    I'm sooo excited!

    This is pretty much what i learnt from reading last year. Take more money and alcohol, less food and clothes and make more of an effort to meet my tent neighbours. Can't wait for this year, only one full weekend to go!

    Boots. Don't wear anything with heels or anything that you're really attached to. At Wacken I saw so many girls and guys wearing combat boots, and I wish I had followed suit. I was wearing 5 inch heeled leather boots. The only thing that saved me was the chunkiness and walkability of the heel. Otherwise, it would have been a disaster.

    Bring a jumper or two in a bag, cause you'll need it at night. T-shirts are a must, long sleeved t's as well. Don't bring expensive jewelry or anything that you'd be really sad to part with.

    I'm really not liking the look of the weather at the moment

    Do you think going down Friday night would be too late if you're camping?
