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.

Going with mates to a festival is booooring. It's so much more fun to just wander wherever you want to whenever you want to and chat to whoever. There's nowt more annoying than having to stop raving because your mate is tired/hungry/needs the loo...And if you camp withGladtalk there'll be about 20 people you'll be bumping into all over the place.

i agree with this dude! to be honest, whilst I've loved being at glade with mates in the past, esp when chilling at tents etc, some of my best moments have been the random "lost three hours" spent down at origin meeting randoms! however, it is always nice to hook up with pals at some point. this year however, I'm going on my own...should be ok! surrounded by like-minded people, fantastic music (the best!!!) etc etc! anyway, we are all interbeing - what we do effects others....enjoy the glade, spread the positive vibes...e n j o y ! :D

Hey, I'm also going solo to Glade this week.

Gone solo to festivals before. Hasn't worked quite so well for me in the sense that I try to find a group to hang around with yet always feel like an outsider... Difficult to explain.

What I'd really like is to camp with a few other people that are also going solo so that we all have a group and are not outcast by relations in any way, we are all socially nuetral :panic: !

But yeah, I can dream :unsure:

I know what you mean about the outsider factor when you hang with a group, it can lead to some akwardness but it also gives you a unique selling point as they know all about their mates but your a totaly unknown factor ;)

I did Glastonbury on my own this year.

I met some well cool people who i hung around with most of the weekend. I had a really good time and that but what i did keep thinking was that although everything was great and that i was having fun, I wished all my other mates were there to experience it with me.

I wandered alone pretty much all weekend. In fact, I did it so successfully that I actually felt like a sideshow at Camp GT and I managed to spend as much time at the stages with Leah + partner as I did with my "hactual" friends!

(PS hi again Rach)

(PPS I've just got back from Spain so expect about 40 threads to be bumped this morning)

(PPPS I think I might take the latter advice and create a completely separate camp for myself next year)
