Yeah could have done with more veggie/healthy stalls, I only saw a couple & they didn't have much variety e.g falafel or veggie burger of which I don't like either really (unless its a decent veggie burger but they're rare)

the guy i camped with bought a disposable bbq and then some bacon, he left the instructions on top of the grill and set fire to that thinking itd light quicker.

In the campsite nearest to us (we were in campervan field) there was a designated 'Cooking Area' right underneath the look-out-post warden. I'm pretty sure they were letting people cook with whatever they wanted there?

This facility could be developed and monitored to allow people to cook with gas?

I can't see how you can cook properly without gas or an open fire? You can use a storm kettle but they're only really designed for one person.

Normal festy price..but food wasn't exactly varied.
Could do with a bit of sushi!'s not hard or particularly difficult to make :o.

Gaymers cider tastes awful!
I like to have a martini - two at the very most.
After three I'm under the table.
After four I'm under my host

^^Haha, festival sushi - you must have an iron stomach Jen.

-Better beer sponsor, or encourage the Carlsberg Group to include some of the other beers they own, like Kronenbourg - or even Carlsberg Export. Cider drinkers got a 4.5% cider, whereas lager drinkers had to settle for 3.8% pisswater.

-Food was, on the whole, not bad. Uninspired, but good festival grub. APART from the first burger van you encountered entering the arena from the Police station entrance. That one gave me bad stomach...
