Expect lots of "awwws" off people.
Thank you

Yay! Ticket booked, hotel booked, transport sorted so I'm all set for GUTC :-)

I have a question though: what time is the first band on? My check in time for the hotel is two o'clock and I want to see whether that's going to mean me missing the start.

Grrr! I definitely don't want to miss them! I was hoping the first band would be later than the door opening time. I'll have to try and check in some other time.

I hope it stops raining. It's going to take a week to dry out my stupid heavy canvas tent and I'm gonna have soggy bunting.

I was going to camp until I broke my leg but now I'm glad I'm not. Doubly so because it would be even worse with the rain and the leg.

I hope it doesn't rain too much for the bands to play. I'm bringing my water proof trousers.

Hope you're all having a lovely time! I couldn't face camping in the pouring rain, so after loading all the car up I decided not to go. Stupid weather.

On my way over for day two in a few minutes! Trust that paying on the door is still fine. I. Need. Some. Indiepop.

Hobbes had a great time too. Ready for bed now though. We loved MJ Hibbett and The Just Joans and the after disco was a particular highlight for the hardcore who stayed late. Sad to miss today but we had to get back. Time for bed!

The new 10p Mixes song about goths outside the train station is a stunner and Town Bike never stop being amazing.

Fairly devastated to have missed the Saturday, but can't really be away from home overnight while I have a missus sporting the LARGEST PREGNANT BELLY THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN. I am dead chuffed everyone had a good time - and Sunday was fantastic; thanks Linda and Kev for inviting me to play, and to a brilliant audience.

The Glasgow crowd had a great time too. The sheer volume of Christine Pristine consumed (it goes down very easily!) means I don't have any clear favourite moments but I have general memories of fun and happiness!
Good work all involved!

Sunday was the loveliest but went by too fast. Everyone's singing and playing was just OH! And it was so, so good to see some of you. Wish I'd danced with you all on Saturday night! Thankyou Linda and Kev for getting us on trains and cars and out of the ordinary (and graysonscolumn for the lift <3). x

I stood next to Pete Dale at the urinal on Saturday afternoon and said I thought he should have been headlining on the Saturday night then I realised I meant MJ Hibbett and said as much and then I didn't know what else to say and Pete just sort of smiled awkwardly and left.

You want to get yourself on Tindr, mate. Or whatever it's called.
