Camp Loner 2014

Postby lolatheminxx » Wed Nov 13, 2013 1:48 pm

All you new people looking for team-ups, people to camp with and sleazy hook-ups - start signing up here!

I met some of my best people in the world by joining the old Camp Loner, and I’ve stuck with the crazy bastards despite 2 years without Sonisphere.

We tried integrating old loners with the new loners a couple of years back but it was too big a camp for people to get to know eachother! So we will hand the reigns over to you noobs (whenever you arrive). Don’t be nervous about camping as part of a Camp Loner, it’s awesome.

It will be awesome to meet some cool people and stick around with for as long as possible.
My brother doesn't know that we're going just yet as this will be a present for his 18 birthday but I'm sure he will be up for it ;)

It might be a little quiet in here until there's more of a line up, but I imagine it will be hopping soon. In the mean time, welcome to the forums! :)

Possibly might be interested in this - put my deposit down but not sure if any of my friends are coming yet. I think they are as you suggested though waiting to see whats on the undercard before making a decision.

Hey Guys,

My first year at Sonisphere, and was given the ticket as a surprise chrimbo present. Delighted to be going, but cant seem to persuade any of the nearest & dearest to come with me.

It looks like I will be aiming for Camp Loner. Any advice or suggestions for first -timer greatly appreciated.

Welcome newbies :) the best advice I can give is to not be nervous, going to the first Sonisphere alone and joining Camp Loner was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

My friend and I may decide to Camp with the loners this year - undecided just yet if we're going to camp or not.

I camped with the Loners at Download 2010 and was a great experience. Great bunch of folk.

Hi,
I would very much like to join camp loner because I'm a bit worried about not knowing anyone at all who is going. I did download fest with a friend last year and we met some great people but this year I'm doing all the festivals solo so would be really cool to know people beforehand so yeah, where do I sign up?

I'm heading down from Glasgow on the Thu. But I'm not camping. Staying in London and just getting a train there and back each day.

I second what paul has to say! a long time ago (2011) a lonely young girl from Ireland got on a plane to Sonisphere... The plane was full of metalheads and other festival-goers. From that moment I had the best weekend especially when I met up with the bunch of losers oh um loners at the gates. Before it opened I was already having fun! Don't be shy or scared, it's shaping up to be a good one this year already :)

As for the practical questions - we had a Facebook group where we could get to know each other and then eventually share phone numbers. The early arrivals meet at the gate to queue and others come along when they get there. We had designated a couple of people to pick up people at the gates but every year is different I suppose., it's early to be organising those things yet and I'm not even sure who will be looking after it, since the main group of old loners have now split in to a different group as they all know each other so well and it was getting to be a huge camp.

So welcome, and just enjoy getting to know each other a little for now :)

I may drive down, if possible though I may just get the coach. Does it leave at Buchanan street depot or Glasgow Central? In 2010, me and a mate got the coach from Newcastle, waited at the bus depot and ended having to leg it to the train station in 10 minutes when we found out it was departing there!

The website says that the bus leaves from Buchanan St bus station.

My bf and I will be joining Camp Loner. We're travelling from Canada so we know nobody!

We plan on picking up a cheap 2 person tent when we get to the UK, any tips on cheap stores with tents?

Aaaah, this thread seems to have bypassed my attention.

Welcome newbies. Probably better you join our Facebook page

You'll get answers more quickly there. It's where we organise things closer to the time.

Any big supermarket (there's one right next to the shuttle bus stop at Stevenage station). That'll do you a range of decent tents.
