Okay, this is the best one so far.

If someone is willing to lend me a beret I'll do beatnik poetry as nightly entertainment in the Sophie stage, your all welcome to take turns playing the bongos :P

For the first time I'm going to costume up and really take part in the Bloodstock experience.

This is going to be so fucking awesome! All ready to meet up with friends and party the fuck out to some crazy bands.

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.
