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 solo to a festival

Postby dinnwarde » 09 Jul 2008, 22:34

What is it like?

This year will be the first time i have ever done it, as none of my mates are into the music, and i only won the one ticket (although i am well chuffed that both me and Jemo get to go, its only fair, cake crew!! :))

Shall hopefully be joining you lot at the GT camp, if i can find it, not sure what time that green bus from Manc will arrive, may have to get someones number and meet up - looking forward to meeting you all :wackyhat:

To be honest, the guy who came with me last year was being well boring (pissed off with the mud and being a moody git all weekend) - he would just get wrecked and crash out in his tent at about midnight every night, so i was practically alone then, and i met loads of wicked people and had a great time :D

I cant think of any other festival that is better for friendliness than Glade, and it will be a mad adventure getting all the way down on my own

Cant wait !! :) :panic:

Just wondered how many others are doing the same

Going solo is the best way to go, dinn, especially compared to having a boring mate in tow. You're free to see what you want when you want, go on random wanders, meet interesting new people etc. Should be a belter of a Glade for you. :)

Being a bit fick, I was wondering what DOA was, but I guess it's Dogs On Acid? :unsure:
Top one. Nice one. Get sorted.

Yea I'm not on there so much these days either. Read more than I post, but like to keep up with what's going on in the world of dnb, label news, new tunes, dl mixes etc, and of course, there are some excellent threads from time to time! Currently loving the architecture one!

oh..I post as misdemeanor :)

:thup:

I've flown to Stockholm for a day trip before now. Glade would be a fucking piece of cake in comparison!!

My main tip would be to get your balls out of your ass and just say hello to everyone nearby, introduce yourself and they will probably bring you on board :) I've lost count of the number of random people I've ended up talking to whilst stood at a stage on my own. I'll probably never see them again and especially if it's a girl I try not to say too much, but each and every 2 mins conversation with a random makes me feel like I'm reaching out to the festi and getting involved. Hopefully me talking to them has the same effect on them!

Oh and don't be ashamed of just standing around near a stage and smiling at people. The more obvious you make yourself as a solo-stander-around-people-watcher, the more randoms will smile at you as they pass and you might even get some conversations! The dudes around the stalls are fixed and they will talk to everyone.
