1. wear flip flops. impractical, and silly. and youy end up moaning that some bugger with jack boots has bounced on your toes... idiot.
2. dont buy a jester hat, no matter how funny you think it'd be. you will look like a proper twat.
3. dont blow up gas cannisters, toilets, batteries and fireworks near tents.. its just stupid and dangerous. if i find you doing it you will be beaten to a pulp and thrown into a portaloo... theres no point to it and its bloody dangerous. no one wants to see their tent go up in flames or see anyone asleep inside it when it does go up.
4. Dont buy a jester hat. jester hat = twat. geddit?
5. dont steal.
any ive missed... oh yeah... dont buy a jester hat.
it's not wet, it's just a slightly deep muddy puddle.. get yer boots and rock on, baby!!
We could hear them going off in green as well - pilllocks.
In reference to the flip flop comment - you should also never wear them because 'mud' and christ knows what else will end up all over your feet. Saw so many people wandering aroudn barefoot this year - down the cattle runs, by the food areas and the loos.
Wear trainers and think about what you are treading in!
Don't set alarm clocks. Here is my story, and with hindsight, I admit I am guilty of stupidity.
Last year at Reading, thursday night. Was feeling pretty knackered even though it was early (about 11 i think). Decided that as I didn't want to miss out on the late night partying, to set my phone alarm to go off in an hour or so's time... Unfortunately, shortly after I had hit the sack, so did everyone else in my group. The phone alarm went off, and due to a combination of alcohol and weed, it didn't wake me (or anyone else around) despite behind next to my head.
Some thief (i agree with Royston, thieves are baaad) came over, slashed my fly sheet open and took the phone. Perhaps it was a good thing not to have woken and been face to face with a man with a knife....
So whilst alarm clocks in the morning may be alright, phone alarms set to go off at midnight are definitely not!
the first rule of Reading Festival is don't talk about Reading Festival the 2nd rule of Reading Festival is don't talk about Reading Festival the 3rd rule of Reading Festival is when someone says stop or goes limp, roll them in their tent and wake then up early in the morning to take the mick :-) 4th rule, only 2 guys to a can 5th rule, only one can at a time. 6th rule, they drink without soda or mixers 7th rule, the fire burns as long as it has to... 8th rule, if this is your first Reading Festival, you have to swim in the Thames...
