If Alex managed to get a booking yesterday then I guess the answer has to be not yet. I wouldn't hang about though.

I'm camping. Mmm. Maybe I should check that our tent has not rotted away since it was last used at Glastonbury all those years ago.

All pretty good. They get busy in the morning but they're generally kept in good nick. It might be an idea to bring flip-flops for the showers, and a spare bog roll never goes amiss just in case.

Not bad actually. Y'know, by campsite standards. But there aren't many - if you want a shower and you don't want to queue, you have to go at 6 or 7am.

... which is the one advantage of taking my 8 yr old boy, as he'll have been up since 5.30 and dragged me to the shower block 3 times by 7.00am.

How, eh, private are the showers? As someone from the British Isles, I am uptight about public nudity.

They've each got lockable doors. It's not like Carry On Camping or anything.

I will be taking you up on this Ian.

I camped last time round and I'm doing it again this year. Oh what larks we had putting the oaf tent up! The showers were fine and pretty quiet around 11am which is when I took mine each day and I had no problems at all. They were fucking miserable at the cafe but it's not that much different from the service you get in London. I stuck to cereal and that was fine although I would have liked some tea with the milk they served... awful.

Wasn't there a B N P gathering at Golden Valley not that long ago?

There's a B N P gathering in Amber Valley (which is the district the Indietracks site is in) every year. It's their Red, White & Blue festival. It shares some similarities with Indietracks, such as bunting.

absolutely
the HARD TWEE Indietracks Festival has been forced to call off its annual Bunting curl and glue event which usually takes place in Ripley, Derbyshire.

The cancellation of this vile event is due to the persistent campaigning by anti-crafties and anti-tweeers.

However, Bunting and the extremely twee won't disappear despite the festival victory. Its support is based on the bankruptcy of the established parliamentary parties, which can only be cut across by workers' unity in struggle against attacks on living standards and for workers to have a mass political party of their own.

So there is no prospect of me showering away, and then dropping my soap, and then bending down to pick it, only to find that a Swedish biker named Rudi has bent down to pick it up for me, and he hands it to me with a wry smile and a knowing wink, and then...

oh, er, nothing to see here, move along.

I'm sure that could be arranged if that's the kind of thing you're into.

I wonder if my 2008 suggestion box idea 'awaken the campsite an hour before first band with a Ruth Madoc style glock jingle' will finally be adopted.
