There could have been more loos around the main stages cos the queues were rather long especially on Sun which meant either having to hold it in so u could see the bands whole set or missing the beginning in order to take a slash. Mind u if there was a longer break inbetween bands there wouldn't be that problem

My problem is that I have a tendency to need to go at least two or three times in a night :/ for this weekend I tried to hold it in as long as possible but there was one morning where I was so desperate and didn't want to face the 6am toilet queues. Had my friend not been in the tent at the time, I was honestly considering trying to aim into a cup :lol:

The moral of that being, MORE TOILETS ON CAMPSITE PLZ.



lol, my friend did that at download.....it was alright for him he could aim into a bottle in the middle of the night but if it was me i would have had to trek to the toilets

yep they defo need nore toilets next year tho i will say there was pretty much always toilet roll in em which i found very suprising lol

I saw a guy piss on his mate during the limp bizkit set, and instead of getting annoyed, the mate found it funny.
I was WELL confused... :roll:

made me laugh a few times tbh. urinals we're genius. and to start with in the v.i.p area it was meant to be half toilets for men, half for women. and as i noticed a few hours later. All the signs we're ripped off the womens and these were unisex toilets! haha

and one time, whilst queueing for the toilet. just for a piss, i noticed on the side of the queue, a perfectly good tree. so yes. i did piss on that tree. and i'm sorry to the guy that it almost splashed on. The queue was rather close to the tree! haha

-Nowhere near enough toilets - needed at least 50% more.

-Need two clusters per field in camping. (Not necessarily as big, but more spread out to break up queues) Red camping area toilets were right next to another field, which I though was bizarre.

-Early Bird camping area didn't have any - rather annoying.

-Ground needed either - some sort of grate,

or at the very least, sawdust or gravel.

Think i was lucky only had to que in a morning and was armed with wipes, loo roll and antibac spray so never had an issue, plus they were no where near as bad as i expected. Only suggestion is either empty then more often or provide more by night time they were rather full and smelly felt for the people camped near to them boo :cry: . Only went once in the arena they were handing out loo roll had to que but not to long and okish.

My thoughts exactly XD what were they thinking... I also actually got a bit iffy about the toilets being next to the area with drinking water, but hey.

I never had a problem, especially compared to other festivals I've visited. Having said that, it makes no sense at all to not have urinals everywhere there's some toilets. it makes it quicker for everyone, takes up less space, and they're less disgusting to use!

same probably applies to female urinals, but I'm not an expert in that area

Toilets were better than most but a few more would have been nice.
Make the last few days go away already
