i think the line up is pretty poor so far, only happy with the yeah yeah yeahs.
though its meant to be two days of lock up stage which should be ace.
yeah it took me 45 mins to get my ticket, but looks like i'm going on my own since none of my mates could get tickets for reading so they're going to leeds instead.
i hope no guy gets his bits blown off this year aswell :|

it's never actually really sold out.
Here's a secret.. there is always extra tickets at the box office if you ask(weekend). I count the wristbands.

Anyway it sucks this year.

it's weak this year. hopefully the concrete jungle stage will be awesome and make up for the awful kaiser chiefs and the sheer 90s boredom of pearl jam.

Less Than Jake have also announced they are playing. I'm going to Leeds - having got tickets within 20 minutes of them going on sale. Several of my friends travelled miles to get to get some tickets.

My first festival, hope it's gonna be fun
