Depends on who is around, but it usually involves alcohol in the VIP bar.

Only had a couple of visits to the VIP bar last year and plan to use it a bit more this year, especially for a wee nightcap or three.

I would like to add a recommendation for late night drunken dodgems. The only time drunk driving is accepted and encouraged, and it's hilarious.
If it sounds good, listen to it

So much this. It's all about the bands. Anything else I can do any day of the week.

If you're going just to get pissed in the campsite and mess around then go to Ibiza, it's probably much cheaper. :lol: :yes:

Not saying that the OP is doing that, but I've met people that do.


Best posts ever on this forum :lighter: :lighter: :lighter: :yes: but I do still enjoy a few bevys with my campin friends but yea why would anyone go and miss so many bands!

Miraculously, in all my years of going to Bloodstock, I had never tried this until last year. As Noodle says, it's recommended.

I found riding shotgun with a foam sword ruining a meme for my driver was the best way to enjoy it.

Ohh absolutely, missing any bands (Excluding King810 and couple more) would be pure sacrilege :lol: :lol:

I always take some speakers and music so and go with a group so normally its back to camp, music on and drinking till we wanna sleep. Occasionally we do the drunk dodgems or find the bin jousters. We try the Sophie tent late night party thing pretty much every year, but the DJ's get repetitive quick and its cheaper to drink through our beers stashed at camp that buy them all night plus i take enough music that i don't need to repeat shit.
