I got some chemical proof wellies with a steel toe cap from amazon for pretty cheap and they are loose fitting so they might be good? I haven't actually worn them though since I just wear my boots in all conditions so they might be crap.

They are indeed, but I'd rather look daft than have my shoes full of mud and my jeans soaked up to my knees.

Waterproof trousers and boots is the way forward, although from a fashion perspective waterproof trousers also look awful.

Nothing wrong with waterproof trousers, just decent pairs are really fucking expensive.

EDIT: D'oh, and in English....

..We're going to a festival. We're all going to look like tramps. Who cares how gay wellies look? Once they do the job who cares? :lol:

Plus decent boots are expensive. Like, really expensive.
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Clutch, Kamelot and The Ocean for BOA 2014 pls!

Yeah, I don't think anyone wears wellies because they look nice. I always take them to festivals as I already have a pair. I could buy a pair of walking boots or something but the only time i'd ever use them is at a festival so it's not really worth it.

Beat me to saying pretty much the same thing. It's a festival in a big muddy wet field, not a bloody fashion show. If went to a festival to be overly concerned about what other people thought of what I was wearing I think I'd know it was time to hang up the gig shoes - talk about skewed priorities :lol:

I got a decent pair for £60 (I think) which is considerably less than those ones but still expensive. They are over trousers rather than proper trousers though.

Yeah I got a pair of overtrousers that were about £40 or something. They make your legs look like treetrunks though.

You could always visit a certain website and use a certain method starting with "T" and ending in "orrent" to get it. Its more or less the same as someone buying it for you...I keep telling myself... :)

Cubase has pretty good hardware protection though. Finding a working virtual dongle for it is a PITA.

ProTools ftw.

Aye, it's pretty tough with the USB license I believe. I'd be much happier with a legit copy anyway, so I'll just have to save the £337 upgrade fee. :P :(

ProTools is even tougher. :lol:

Had no problems with mine* :) Same for 5 as well. I recall 4 was a bitch though.

*Dear FBI, I DID purchase my entirely legitimate copy of Cubase 6. I DID also have the receipt for it...but then my cat ate it. And then my cat caught fire. And then the flaming cat ran into my wood chipper. Which also caught fire. So no, you can't see it.
