Day ticket to Paris purchased! Anyone else going? 70 including print at home fee. None of that 30 postage business!
Might do Saturday too, undecided. Tempted by Marilyn Manson and Offspring...

If I'm in Donnington, I will struggle to work for Monday morning (Central London) without paying 250 for the train (last time I checked). From Paris, I can get a 7am flight into City airport (thank you BA airmiles) and be at work for 8.30

Getting to Paris Download is easier and cheaper than the UK one! Crazy isnt it.

I take it u dont drive. I know public transport in this country is a joke. I paid 7 in london for one tube stop return to the dome from canary wharf. Where as berlin
Cost 7 for a travel pass that covers you to go where you want for the day including train bus and tram. I done my motorcycle licence this year, so will be doing gigs cheap as chips next year

I do drive, but I live in south London and it's 2-3 hours drive each way not allowing for traffic. And I wouldn't be able to drink! I'm pretty sure cost of fuel and parking would be more than 35 for a return flight to Paris. City airport is 15 mins from my flat and it's a tiny airport so you only have to be there 30 mins before the flight.
So, cheaper and quicker, plus I get to have a few beers!

Get an oyster card. It would cost 1.80 for a single from canary wharf using it. You preloaded credit on there and it's capped for the price of a day travel card (which is about 8)

Oooh feel that I should try and make it there, as I have family nearby... not that easy to get to from my part of the UK though.

I'm also the only one in my circle of friends who likes festivals. Everyone I know seems to have some level of crowd anxiety

Efestivals who are generally right in a sense for most things* have them put as a Rumour for Reading and Leeds - basically that means it's been passed onto them their name is in the frame by a source they have. *They do get stuff wrong sometimes.

If it was a SR (strong rumour) or TBC (to be confirmed) then they have really solid evidence it's likely.

Soo quoting myself, they are now a SR on efestivals for Reading and Leeds.

Also with that TRNSMT festival in Scotland now has 5 dates... 29th, 30th June and 1st July, and also 6th and 8th July - so its feasible the foos could play the first weekend of it.
