    right. after seeing the old 20yrs of Metalheadz i wanna go.. but the whole experience looks complicated...

    i only just found out its down near the Winchester! and not London...

    where do you stay? what tickets to get? i wanna take my misses.. so thats like 300pounds just on tickets... JESUS ON A STICK thats alot... do you camp? no gay, but sleep, inna corner under a sheet held up by sticks? them kushti cabins look sweet..

    "do not bring drugs into the city"

    ^ thats just silly.. im going to need to speak with charles about that... does anyone know where he is?

    i know you've all been so do tell...

    i imagine the site will be very crowded this year as they have increased number of tickets sold year on year, but not changed the actual layout of the festi.

    Still will be a really good festival tho, enjoy!

    I hope they have sorted noise issues out this year (although not likely)

    the cabins and yurts and stuff do like comfy, but theyre also extremely expensive and out of the way of everyone else. If you like that and can afford it then fair enough, but I quite like talking to all the wastemen stumbling through the campsite. Security might be a bit tighter in the posh bit too. So yeah buy a standard ticket and sleep under a stretched out sheet.

    Whereabouts you want to pitch your sheet... upto you.. camp down the hill in the bowl to be nearer the dnb areas. Camp up the hill if you like electro swing and gypsy hillbilly stuff. And Psytrance.

    Its a good festival but I think its peaked

    I can imagine how cool it must be wondering around different towns with magical facepaint on guided by the lazers just before heroine behind the old mill.

    Brazil sounds better....

    i think the price of the tickets is abit much...

    the price of accomadation (not tenting) is extortionate!

    overall.. MEH.. think i'll give it a miss..

    rather spend money on burning man

    Welcome to the country where internal market is protected by outrageous high import taxes, and products produced internally are expensive as hell because of... taxes.

    But come! We NEED your money. Plis? Gib monies? huehuehue br.

    Rio is shit. Overpriced everything, to be in a city with polluted as hell beaches, 40ºC of temperature even in winter and the chance to be robbed after literally two steps away from the hotel. I advice you, if you still want to come, to go to the northeast, like Ceará, or Bahia, or Maranhão. Much, much better.

    If wanted russ to get murdered, I'd call him here, in São Paulo, and pay a taxi to a neighborhood called Jardim Ângela.

    In 3 years, you'll find a mangled country, with a civil war. OR your monies will have so much value you'll be able to buy the Cristo Redentor statue for 5 pounds.
