Remember to put your tent up with the door facing away from the wind direction.

Good call. I wouldn't have thought of that. All I need to do is get my bearings tomorrow. Maybe I'll bring a compass.

Is the map standard with North at the top or would that be too easy?

The Bloodstock Map definitely does not have north at the top or indicate which direction is north. Something to request for next year I suppose.

Thinking about where I camped last year, the buses dropped us off east of where I was so I can use that as a reference point. Strong winds are expected to come from the south and south-west, so face your door to the north.

I *think* I’m right in saying that if you were to be standing on the path in the middle of Midgard, then north would be roughly towards the main stage? As a rough guide for those who don’t have a compass to hand.
