Going solo to a festival

Glade Festival is Britain's biggest and best non-corporate electronic dance music festival, with a proper havin' it vibe. Now based at a stately home in Norfolk.

talking to randoms at festivals is the best bit for me. i hardly ever do it back in the straight world. this year i'm going with some people I originally met randomly at glasto 03! there is no better environment for meeting people and making friends.

we went to bangface weekender with people we met randomly at monthly bangface. went a little something like this:

"going to the weekender?"
"love to but there's not enough of us"
"same"
"take my number..."

:thup:
It's been real.

its a relief to hear I'm not the only 1 going solo, also its my 1st festival. So looking forward to it and good to hear how friendly everyone is.

I'll be collecting litter, so if you see a scottish guy with long hair picking litter gie us a shout . And please.............try and be tidy to make it easier for me!!!!!! Ha!

Many other jocks heading down?

harry, if you need us to spot a scottish dude picking litter you'll need to go around shouting "HOOTS MON" every time you pick something up

Alone is the best way to go, went with half of Manchester last year and I must have seen all of 2 complete sets the whole weekend, the more mates you have the more "Oh I just need the toilet", "Oh I'm just going back to the tent too..." and "Oh we should go see...". But then again I do hate people, and being a hermit would be my dream job.

erm, well, this year, none of my mates could make it to the glade either through other plans (how could they?!!), skintness, or general other stuff.....i thought I wouldn't be able to go and was down in the dumps especially having enjoyed it so much for the past three years...then it struck me...why not go solo style?! at first I thought it might be weird, but then I remembered other random soloists from last year that I met, and they were really sorted and chilled! so, this year, I will be going on my lonesome, turning 30 on the saturday, but, rather than feeling lonely, I know I'll be surrounded by some of the best and most up4it people in the world, and combined with fantastic music, esp the origin stage (a personal favourite), trees everywhere, and a billion things to see and do, I think it will be great, even if it rains! having survived last years mudbath, I'm ready for anything!
so, if you so a guy dancing at the origin stage spinning poi, probably wearing a ghost busters tshirt or an old skool eat static or return to the source tshirt, come and say hello! :D
