who's going to bring the washboard, we may as well have a skiffle band, would still be more popular than the 4DJOTA playing "Walk"

in other news, yes i'm really excited, off work for 6 weeks, i've bought my new coolbox, i bought my festival beer supplies yesterday, i'm checking clashfinder several times a day for updates and according to my wife i'm worse than a kid at xmas

Actually managed to muster up a bit of excitement yesterday while doing a run through of the bands I'd not come across before to see if any of them were worth watching.

There weren't very many that fell into that category mind.
2017 Gigs (here so I remember to go)

17/06 - Guns N' Roses - London
15/07 - Saor - London
10/08 - 13/08 - Bloodstock

You have 6 weeks off?! If you aren't a teacher then you're lucky to get so much time off :o

Well time off is part of the excitement whether it's 6 weeks or just 4 days.

For me this is an England holiday. Before Bloodstock I'm having a separate adventure with the wife. Then I split for the festival and party it up with my squad. And I love England with your wide selection of Ciders, your pork scratchings, and your Full English Breakfasts!

After listening sessions the line ups not as bad as I thought. There'll still be a lot of camp drinking but there's some fun stuff on Sophie and New Blood stage that I'm definitely gonna check out.

I saw Fury play in Manchester on Staurday. New material is EPIC!

Then, over the weekend, I got to the bottom of a pile of boxes, where I found all my route plans/bookings/tickets/etc for BOA. I can put my travel folder together this week!

Starting to compile my list of festival essentials, does anybody know if pen knives are allowed at all? Thinking of investing in case there's ever need for a tent repair!

Once I get through this week at work I will get to the weekend and review and pack my rucksack for the final time. Then I just need to practice assembling/collapsing my new tent and I can look forward to finishing at lunchtime on Wed 10th and starting my travels to BOA
