Watched Coheed & Cambria and Corey but too Hot! Need a tent that can let the heat out. When the tent is max'd out (& assuming its not raining) it would be good if you could roll the sides of the tent up so that the people behind the barriers can watch and listen. Also don't locate too close to other attractions that are playing music Air Guitar / Funfair. Otherwise created a great atmosphere.

+1 for the heat issue. The only other annoying thing was the hill, but notihng you can really do about that.

What was annoying about the hill? I loved the fact you could see right down to the second stage and sit up there with a picnic blanket.

The stages seemed a bit too small, well the Saturn stage was at a strange angle and so close to the main roadway bit that it seemed overpacked for some bands. Also when Corey played and everyone thought it would be slipknot the bohemia tent was effing nuts.

It was frustrating that no one was allowed in for Thunder after the first 10 minutes, even though streams of people were leaving no one was allowed in, so by the end there was a great deal of room.

It was great having the comedy and stuff on! However was a bit pissed i couldn't get in to see corey! As said before the sides of the tent should be rolled up for at least the big acts so we can all see and hear! Also being on a slope was very hard on the old ankles!

Bohemia stage was way too hot, plus idiots smoking in a tight space even though there were clearly no smoking signs.

Instead of having rock disco - Karaoke - Comedy - Rock Disco

It would be better to just have 2 hours Karaoke, lots of people wanted to do it, but they ran out of time, then 2 hours Comedy and then Rock Disco till the early hours

Personally I think the people in the Bohemia tent should have been counted properly. I think it was too full, and if something had happened it would have been catastrophic.

As one of those peeps with bad habbits (smoking) I really liked the chill out area near the bohemia tent with the little white picket fence, big squishy bean bags and seating, and no over the top pricing for ciggies or baccy (although limited choice) which was fine. Same again next year please!

Was very well situated, only complaint was there was nothing on during Metallica as I originally had planned not to watch them (soooo glad I did after) but not the point there would have been a few people who would have liked an alternitive

Soooo disappointed that I wasn't allowed into the tent for Coheed - had wanted to see Heaven and Hell as well. When finally got in for the last song it was soooooo hot!

Second the smokers white picket fence area. Bliss. Jager Truck had some really awesome bands on it, Corey Taylor was a disaster waiting to happen and there was no security in sight on the entrance we were sat outside of until someone in an orange jacket with a walkie talkie yelled for back up. Cue much bitching, and the only aggro I saw all weekend.
Overall, loved it. It was chilled, mellow, had real coffee in real mugs and tonnes of people watching. We spent a lot of time there :D

I really struggled with the heat as well. Wanted to watch Thunder but just couldn't bring myself to stay inside that tent for a long period. Otherwise I think it was in the perfect place and while I was only in there very briefly the sound was great.

Very warm inside when busy, but was a fantastic atmosphere.

I thought Thunder in the tent was a touch of genius, the atmosphere was magnificent with people singing along.

Perhaps could do with being a touch bigger, and maybe have a bar inside in one corner or along the back or something.

Sound was brilliant, loved the Karaoke (you may have heard me, I was the girl who did Sweet Child O Mine on both Thursday and Friday, although friday I was joined by another awesome girl whose name I cannot remember unfortunately :/ but yeah...) and the comedy, saw Zebrahead and a few other bands in there. I agree that it was mega hot!! But the sound was good.

Smokers white fence area = awesome, Jager Truck = awesome, Monster Army Camp = VERY awesome. Love the Chai Chapel and Smokey Tentacles tents too!

The tent needs to be bigger if there is going to be big acts in there. Lots of people couldn't get in for Thunder, Coheed and Corey Taylor. I had to miss most of H&H to make sure I saw Coheed, given the rain at that point it was a fairly easy choice though. Also left LP/Dead BY Sunrise early to make sure I saw Thunder. The only bit of aggro I saw all weekend was people frustrated that they couldn't get in to see Coheed.

Agree with earlier comments about roll up sides, although for that to work the Jager truck would need to be further away.

I liked how the Bohemia village was right in where the music was, normally when you need to go eat you miss the bands.

Another big plus was reasonably priced tea and coffe in proper mugs with a nice seating area. Nice for the 40+ brigade

Loved being able to chill out with a cup of tea at the Chai Chapel or Tea and Toast and still be able to hear some of the bands though.

The bohemia tent itself needs improvement.

It needs to be bigger and have better ventilation. maybe a possible roll up sides type thing?

Also, I think there needs to be some kind of policing on the 'no smoking' rule. I did see a few people smoking, and if I saw someone smoking I asked them to put it out, but what the hell is a random guy coming up to someone and asking them gonna do? Frakk all!

the bohemia tent wasn't really big enough,should have been able to roll the sides up so that people that couldn't get inside could still see something

Bohemia area was well needed,it was good to have quallity entertainment after the bands and to go on so late too.Luved the Monster rock dj's and Fuel Girls made a great weekend even better! Like i said about camping,spacey yet compact.Amazing! :D

As a lot of people have said, it would have been better if the tent had been bigger. Especially for the acts who were on after the main stage had finished, (Thunder, Hundred Reasons etc) as it got far too busy, with people being turned away (luckily I got there before it got too busy!)

Needs some sort of air-conditioning or something. Was like a bloody greenhouse in there!

Rest of Bohemia Village was good, though. Some nice little ideas with the sit down bars and cafes.
