Re: Announcements coming soon

I know it's hard folks but I promise it's not just as easy as you'd hope it would be. Unfortunately the reality is that telling you something is the same as telling the whole world and in this game you have to play your cards close to your chest till you know the deal is done otherwise you give othe...

Re: Shenanigans in the campsite/arena

I was sitting in the Bohemia bar at about 1am, having my daily catch up with the bar manager about how his day had gone, when a guy called Ashley came and sat down next to us. Ashley was on a stag party for his friend Rob and doesn't usually go to rock festivals as he prefers ones with dance music w...

Re: FLAGPOLE TIME!!!

Dunno if Zac or anyone will read this now. Wanted to say it was pretty disappointing to find we hadn't been given a flag pole and/or area as told. Several people were unable to find us for some time and of course by then the area we had was nowhere near big enough and many people who arrived after ...

Re: The 2014 Praise Thread

Yeah, I didn't quite understand how they managed that and got bands back on time. Did all bands lose one song or something? It was greatly appreciated and I was worried that Gojira were going to come out and only be allowed two songs or something. That was the result of three of us standing around ...

We don't do communal showers. I don't consider them suitable for a civilised society.

Re: The State of Sonisphere 2015

While it could work for Soni as they won't be at the risk of losing money from a less than successful event it could be an issue getting bands. Soni goes, "We want you to play but can't offer you anything concrete until we get X, Y & Z in place", other festival comes in..."We wan...

Re: Team Rock Deal - Thursday Camping

There is no such thing as early entry this year, as in 2011. All weekend camping tickets are valid from Thursday. The word "early" was used in conjunction with the price at the start of the sales period but then we were able to keep the price the same right through so it was irrelevant an...

Re: shuttle bus

Trust me, you'll be fine. We're organised. The shuttle leaves from Argyle Way and you can either buy your wristband there or you can show your confirmation to get that journey and then pick it up at the box office when you arrive on site so that you have it for the rest of the journeys. It will be £...

Re: Let's share some survival tips guys....

One of the best things I have ever seen was at Son 10 when they were providing plastic bottles for people to decant into at the entrance. Such a simple solution to make people work with the rules instead of smuggling. We've done that every year and are doing it again this year. We should put up pic...

So you'd prefer nearer the car park end rather than the barns end?

How many pitches are you?

OK, it looks like we are just going to have the one for Camp Loner in the main campsite. It will be up by Dead Dude's house as usual so tell everyone to head that way. One in the RR for Camp Viper.

There aren't any pass outs for day tickets but you can stay till the bitter end if you like (3am ish) and all our activity is in the arena so you won't miss out on anything.

Is J7 going to be closed for those people driving from the north? In 2010 I came off at J8 and got diverted along country roads and got stuck in a jam trying to get into the car park. In 2011 I drove down to J6 and came back up north to J7 which was much quicker. Far easier to get out as well - str...
