I'm worried that I don't have enough alcohol for Bloodstock. I have two bottles of peach schnapps, and a bottle of vodka. :(
Yes. I probably love Opeth more than you do.

Don't worry they'll probably have that alcohol-based hand cleanser stuff in the toilets, that'll be at least 60%.

All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
Can't a man start over?! Do I have to keep on PAYING?! HUH?!
Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!

This.. Though mine survived the little bit of rain we had at Hellfest and was a bit better than £10 at Wilkie's (I've got one of them Pop-Up Festival Tents from Argos). My plan is to take a towel with me to dry myself off in the morning if necessary.

If you're worried about your tent not being waterproof, get yourself some silicone waterproofing spray and for the love of pineapples, make sure you or any of your bags are not touching the sides at all!

The silicone spray seals it and water should just run off. :) And it lasts quite a while if you wish to reuse your tent.

My tent's my trusty Lichfield 3-birth hoohoohoo.

was there rain at Hellfest? i dont remember that at all, unless it happened whilst i was asleep.


silicone spray sounds expensive... safety pinned binliners around the tent will have to do.

wont be a problem if i safety pin them to where the poles go through, as there'll then be another layer of tent hole free.

Yeah it wasn't exactly anything massive, but enough to make me stand under the shelter in the Metal Corner when I went for a morning coffee. (Which reminds me, is there a breakfast stall at BOA? I needs me coffee)

I was silly to be worried about the drive to and from BOA. Absolutely no problems or hold-ups at all!
I've had more stressful drives to the next town and back (especially that time I had to pick up the chinese..) than both trips this weekend combined!

WFMO now: The fact I managed to spend about £250.. Where the fuck did that all go? All I can recall is:
£20 - BOA Shirt
£26 - Various CDs
£20 - DVDs (did anyone else visit the stall with a few boxes of horror DVDs? Fucking bargain!)
£7.50 - GBH shirt (Plastic Head stall win)
£25 (estimate) - Various patches

I can't have spent £150 on food and beer at the 'Arms.. can I?
