In Italy it's the hottest summer ever so I even wouldn't mind some rain

50/50 chance of rain. I like those odds.

If anyone wants to borrow my adult poncho let me know and I'll pop it in the post, seeing as I'm not going (sniff).

I suspect the kag-in-a-bag might be seeing some action this year...

That's a shame Leon - I hope you're not too downhearted about it.

I was ok till everybody started eeeeeeee-ing!

But no, I'm fine, will be back next year but have prioritised a family holiday this year instead which I'm well looking forward to. I hope you all have a fantastic time (and the weather is ok).

That's good enough. We'll take that one. Nobody look at any more forecasts now - we don't want to change the weather back to a worse one.

I've just bought myself a new cagoule and I've got my waterproof trousers so I'm sorted too.

I could do with it not being too warm as I won't be able to shower - I can only shower once a week because of my leg. I had one last night and so can't have another until after indietracks. Silver lining: no queuing for showers at the campsite with a terrible hangover for me this year :-).

It'll be alright.... won't be much fun putting the tent up but surely if it's pissing it down they'll move everything to the indoor stage on the Friday night? Then Saturday looks fine and a few showers on Sunday... sorted :)

I'm glad my face isn't going to melt like last year..... should be good conditions for the footie on Sunday morning.

Indoor stage on Friday night would be good - closer to the bar!

It's actually getting worse - some showers Saturday, heavy stuff Sunday. And rain and wind around 7pm tomorrow.
