Camp Loners & Newbies 2017

Postby EyesEternal » Fri Dec 30, 2016 4:10 pm

Hello everyone!

We wanted to say hello to everyone on the forums and anyone coming to Bloodstock for their first time or by themselves! We're a camp of metalheads from all over the UK (and a few from abroad) who all camp together at Bloodstock and welcome anyone who needs someone to camp with or has never been to Bloodstock before.

We've been running in our current formation for a fair few years now and have plenty of regulars amongst our ranks so any newbies will have plenty of people to show them around Bloodstock and the camp, and show you all the fun Bloodstock has to offer, take you on our legendary raids of Midgard, and answer any questions you have for before you come along.

If you have any questions, feel free to post the here and me or my fellow admins will try to get back to you as soon as we see it! Or join in with our Facebook group, a very active page full of Bloodstock veterans and fellow newbies who are all happy to help!

I camped with the guys in the Loners group in 2015 (my first BOA) and was made very welcome. A great bunch of folk and well worth hooking up with if you are travelling alone or attending for the first time and want some company.

Hello and welcome.

They are a lovely bunch of folk and you will be very welcome. I camp in VIP these days but still regularly pop over to visit them over the course of the festival.

Valhalla, just look for a flag with winged bollocks on it

Indeed, bollocks with wings and sunglasses (there is a story behind it)!

I will be camping at Bloodstock for the first time this year - I've only been to one day of the festival before, Saturday in 2013 to see Avantasia - and I'll be coming alone so it would be nice to meet up with others who are going alone. I do not, however, use Facebook so I can't join the group! Is there a thread for finding people travelling from the same area? I seem to remember there being one a few years ago.

I'll probably be headed towards that camp myself but I'm not travelling from Dundee unfortunately.

I'm not travelling from Dundee either, fortunately. :lol: I don't live in Scotland anymore. Been in Reading for two-and-a-half years. Forgot to change my location.

That is excellent. Although given I've been doing BOA since 2008 I'm not sure how I've never seen it before.

It only made its debut in 2016, it arrived too late for the 2015 weekend.
