Have to say that up until now I had no idea Carlisle had an airport :confused:

But yeah, as Doovde said it wasn't a particularly well-kept secret, seems like most people have known about this for a good couple of weeks.

And Viv - last time I checked the Big Weekend was a free event...

Ah, somehow I knew it would be Gaga.

Yeah, admittedly it's not a bad line-up for a free event. Sadly it's not quite enough to tempt me though.

A very good line up. Gaga is up there with the choice of Madonna four years ago. My Chemical Romance and Foo Fighters are great for the festival too.

Mike if we don't get tickets it's a travesty!

why? It will be on the TV!! And the radio!! :| Apparently, according to the R1 website, you're still not guaranteed the tickets if you live nearby?!?!

I wish people would get a grip sometimes. I haven't even applied, and *shrugs* I'm just gonna switch on the TV - avoid the crowds!! :hahaha: AND, I won't even have to buy my own food!!

People have even been offering to s*** Mills to get tickets. Seriously!! :rolleyes:


Delta Machine, Depeche Mode - buy NOW !!

That's not particularly shocking considering that there's 40,000 tickets and over 70,000 people live in Carlisle.

If it's me you're referring to when you stated: "I wish people would get a grip sometimes" then I understand all of what you said above that. I actually meant it'd be nice if I, and Mike for that matter, undoubtedly after years and years of applying of OBW tickets we were able to get them seeing as it's in the county where we live. And if that means I need to "get a grip" as you so kindly put it, then so be it.

Just because you don't want to go doesn't mean others don't, Viv.

Yeh, but many would be well passed a BW though, wouldn't they!! I think?!?!

I've applied for tix after all....

Why? I thought watching it on TV was more than adequate for you.

I'm really rooting for the people of Cumbria to get the chance to go to OBW. It would indeed be a travesty if Mike, Emma and SebD (if he wants them) don't get tickets!

So after moaning about the cost of getting there etc and extolling the virtues of watching on TV in the comfort of your own home with food you 'dont have to pay for', you still applied anyways Viv?

In a way I now HOPE you get tickets and have to go. That'd teach ya...

Personally not much about this lineup grabs me, especially not Gagaaargh, Black Eyes with Peas and Nicole Shertlifter etc.

Foo Fighters, Plan B and maybe Tinie are the acts I'll be looking for in the TV coverage, if they were to add Flo to the lineup I might rethink that.

oh and look:

and during that time you'll get sucked in yet again, Viv... At least I maintain my cynicism, even when it's about charidee :hahaha:

Sometimes I really HATE being right... but this isn't one of Those times :hahaha:
