Do you need early bird to secure a good camp spot (basically any that isnt white or brown)?

You don’t need early bird but I HIGHLY recommend it. without early bird you’re gonna be one of thousands coming into the campsites probably tryna secure a good spot around orange/purple etc where all the early birds have already set up camp. You’re gonna have to walk past loads of people and basically squish yourself in a sh** area. It’s basically just gonna be a lot harder tbh. Besides what’s better than waking up in your tent, cracking open a cold one and watching all of the people that didn’t buy early bird struggle to find a decent camping spot. Pay the extra £20 or whatever, definitely worth it.

Don’t be worried! If you’re friends can set up the tents and leave you space then perfect but if not then it’s not the end of the world. I mean as long as you end up finding a space it will all be chill. Where are you planning on camping?

My dream camp would be orange or purple, but obviously that's not exactly realistic without early bird.

To be honest, I don't really mind I think we'll just settle with anywhere. Just hoping it's not too far away from everything

Yes. By Wednesday evening 10pmish all the great spots are taken and then by Thursday midday all the good stuff is gone and by 4/5pm in Thursday your left with all the **** spaces like near the toilets or at the back in white

Worst case scenario get two mates to get early bird then they can pitch there tents and you can join them as they can protect the area
