3. Queens Of The Stone Age, though… Could this really happen?

4. Fingers crossed.

5. How am I going to get last year’s mud off my boots?

6.There’s not going to be as much mud this year, surely?

7. Either way, it probably won’t be as bad as 2015.

8. OK, so it might actually be quite nice:


9. Will my phone’s ‘low power mode’ actually use low power?

10. I wonder if we’ll see our campsite neighbours from last year?

11. Top tip: We will if we camp in exactly the same spot (again).

12. How much alcohol is enough alcohol?

13. I’m glad I didn’t get the Wednesday entry pass.

24. Green camp... or sleep?

25. Which silent disco will have the shortest queue?

26. *whispers* The film tent is a fantastic addition, clubbing is over-rated.
