new rules for 2011 is that you can only use the shuttle bus for arriving on the campsite on the thursday and friday.

should be "public knowledge" once the minutes from the focus group meeting has been published.

bad times.

:(

editted now i am back from the future.

you'll need to take a taxi, but they're not too expensive, especially if you're sharing

Yes you can, you can use it just for shopping, i used it loads last year, got the free bus to stevenage but got a taxi back because the queue for the bus was massive. You can definately use it just to go shopping

Yes


You could last year. That was last year. 2011 is different (though god knows how Kazz knows what its gonna be like in 2012 ;) )

The 2012 stuff has yet to be confirmed, so people shouldn't talk about it. :roll:

not sure on that though, so I dont want to contradict you if you are right :)

A FREE shuttle bus service will run during the scheduled train timings from Stevenage Train Station to the Sonisphere site starting at 1pm on the Thursday and ending once you have all gone on Monday. It will be a continuous service rather than at set times. More buses will be available during busy periods but you may need to wait for a short while to get the next available bus.

Please note that all day on Thursday and on Friday till 9pm, the shuttles will only be available for trips in one direction from Stevenage to the festival. You will not be able to use it for return journeys back to Stevenage. This is to ensure that we turn the buses around as quickly as possible and make the trip from the station as quick as we can for everyone using this service.

Thats copied and pasted from the site and the thread posted by sonisphere in one of the forums says "we only ask food stalls and bars to attend sonisphere so that you have the oppertunity to buy food and alcohol, it is completely up to you weather you use them or not, if you choose to buy food from outside the site to eat in the campsite you can, we even provide you with a free shuttle bus so that you can do this".

all these would suggest the bus will be operating all weekend. I hope so any way, not paying £36 for 24 cans of tuborg lol

the shuttle bus will only be operating to tescimos on the saturday, sunday and monday.

on thursday and friday, you will have to either walk to tescos and get the bus back or get a taxi.

hope this helps.
