*puts on smug grin* The joys of buying them presale after last years event. Looks a decentish lineup but not sure why the verve are headlining lots of festivals as they haven't released anything good since urban hymns hmmm oh well drunkness ahoy.

Kinross is just up the road from me. I didn't bother to get tickets since I can't stand the wacky student sterotypes that go to T in the Park. Rage Against the Machine may have changed my mind since they are one of my favourite bands of all time.

Oh and for anyone that didn't manage to get tickets, didn't they release a couple thousand more last year a little closer to the time of the festival? If so, they will probably do that again.

After all that i didnt get tickets. Suppose i can spend the money better. Rockness anyone? ;) Did u get yours Riz?

I got mine! Whoo! We went at like 7 oclock and our place in the queue was outside the crystal palace (that wont mean much to anyone else bar distrakzion), so were within the first 200 people. Good aswell, meant we could take shifts and pop in an out for a drink and a bit of heat ;)

Cool, have you been before? If so where abouts do you camp... brown allllll the way!!!

Nah I haven't been before, I went to the Open'er festival which is not as big but quite good. And cheap :D So I'll probably take your advice as I don't know much about where to camp or how to survive :P My friend is coming over from Poland just to go to the festival with me :)

Awww. Well it depends what you like. (I have also made the assumption you are going for the entire weekend) Brown campsite has always been known as the party/mad campsite where people do all kinds of stuff but its a right laugh. They had an orange campsite last year that was supposed to be a carpark, that seemed a bit quieter in comparison. Join the reading facebook group and have a look around :)
