Yeah sorry that's what I meant, don't really give a toss about the headliners on main stage Sat/Sun so I'll be dossing around for a bit.


Drinking and talking shit in the IRC camp is better than bands and you know it.


:lol: Ai to be fair it is. Usually by the headliners I'm like "Eh fuck this I could be sitting down and playing danger can"

There's an IRC camp? One of you needs to tell me where that camp is at the forum meet. I don't know what danger can is, but it sounds fun.

Tent, Air Bed & camp chair purchased last night.

Going booze shopping this weekend and I'll probably pack on Sunday.

Bring it on :)

The awkward feeling you get when researching bands more in depth and looking forward to seeing them then realizing the chances of a clash grows as a result

We have a red flag that is attached to a gazebo and we are usually somewhere in the middle of Midgard. Might be able to give you more detail at the time as there will be other taller flags near us that we can point out!

This time next week, I'll be driving (with a belly full of all-you-can-eat full-English) from my hotel to the festival grounds, in order to be on time for the first band of the day!

I actually have a ticket now! Other than that my preparations are confined to buying some of that P20 super powerful sunscreen, making the "Exclusive Sam Zone" sign and putting Jobdone's King Diamond shirt in a plastic bag so it doesn't get ruined in my bag.

Yeah still waiting for VIP, haven't been to a signing session at a festival since Bloodstock 2002 so not bothered about that myself.

I was excited until my 12 yr old daughter jumped off a swing on Thursday night and smashed her ankle. Spent the last 2 days at hospital and got my daughter home 2 hours ago. She needs a plate and 2 pins inserted in her ankle but there are 15 emergency operations scheduled so it will be Monday or Tuesday before it can be done.

Not the build up to BOA I was hoping for. I will still be attending (at her insistence) but I can't say I am particularly upbeat just now.
