I've got backstage passes this year so I need to look really hot incase I bump into Kings of Leon (only band I am pathetically fan-girl about).
I'm planning on wearing black skinny jeans, my brown kind or riding looking boots, grey jumper and black waistcoat. I'm hoping it doesn't rain and is muddy. Probably will though.
Make sure your wellies are comfy.
I had to stand in the same spot for like 5 hours, to be at the front for Foo Fighters, with wellies, this was not a good idea. :-(
Still. Had an amazing time. Manics, Foo's and Rodrigo Y Garbiela were amazing!
Guys I need a mac - does anyone know anywhere on the high street that does them??? and not too expensive - i went into my local camping shop tofay - who would have thought a simple waterproof jacket by berghaus would be £80!!!
there was macs being sold at V for £5 [ for a short ladies ones] or £10 for long ones [ needed beleive me lol]
it was cheap for camping stuff therebut expensive for food.
£4.50 for a burger :O
Yep, looking at the footage on C4 of Chelmsford, we definitely got the worst of the weather at Weston Park! It was horrific! But I coped a lot better than I thought actually... though that might have something to do with the bottle of vodka I smuggled in to the arena... :P
And the traffic.... I set off at 3, normally takes 1-1.5hrs to get there - it was 10 o'clock before we were actually in the field, desperately trying to find a spot for our tent in the pitch black!
I think my shower and my bed yesterday were the best feelings I have ever had! :P
I found that I packed waaaaay too much. I lived in shorts, 2 pairs of tights, socks, wellies, vest top, long sleeve top, fleece and waterproof. I'm normally very fussy about washing as well, but I didn't even bother washing my hair for the whole weekend - just felt like there was no point, given that a) most people looked like poo (aside from the trendies who had obviously spent a lot of time on getting ready!), and b) It was so wet that in 2 minutes you'd look like a drowned rat anyway. My wellies were my best friend for the weekend - make sure you get a comfy pair! Mine were Asda, £12.
And on the last day the side of our tent caved in a bit, and all my stuff (only my stuff!) got soaked, so I ended up having to wear my boyfriends tops and underwear! Nice :P
The things I've learnt - pack less clothes, less food, more beer, and only take one big bag - I regretted taking more so much!
im panicking now - Reading on thursday!!!!!! was wonderin shud i take my very warm, yet expensive jumper for them cold nights, or my cheap, but not very warm one ?
I havent started packing for Reading yet, I just dont know what clothes to take! I think I'll sort it all out tomorrow night... Deffo taking wellies and a mac, even if the weather does look nice!! Im going to take my big uni hoodie too, and shorts and tights. Im pretty excited though a bit nervous about camping!!
Oh no! I got my mac off ebay for £5, and I have a pair of wellies from Asda (kids section!) and a pair from a cheapo shoe shop, like shoe zone! Maybe try there if you have time?? Good luck! X
Try somewhere less fashiony! I live in the countryside and had no problem - a camping shop usually does plain, cheap macs. You can defo get Hunters from The Highlands on Regent Street.
head to asda for wellies - was in there earlier, & they seemed to have loads!!
Okay, just packed for Reading
Lots of tops
Shorts, 3/4 combats, denim skirt
Underwear + thick socks
Other stuff - pro plus, parocetamol, cups etc etc
Sleeping bag etc
I think I have everything! I seem to have loads in a massive bag... Though we are getting a lift there.
