Here is a better photo, from the 2011 show.

You would be the other side of that barrier.

This is the second exit after the Old Stratford roundabout. The slip road has two lanes. I advise left for the station and parking around the station and right for the Bowl and car parks around the bowl.

If you miss the exit, particularly if you are parking near the station, don't panic. Take the next exit and use the roundabout to double back on yourself.

Unless you are used to it, MK is confusing to drive around.

I'll see you all in either the Spoons or the Lloyds on Midsummer Boulevard tomorrow. Have fun.
thanks for this - the whole of everywhere is confusing to drive around for me and I remember getting onto the A5 with a big smug face last time but going completely in the wrong direction. I am really bad at getting to anywhere without this kind of help!

Do they offer them or do you have to ask for one? Not sure if I want to go in there or not due to the piss showers that were going on last time. Maybe at the back of the circle is indeed the best place to be, particularly to avoid those incidents.

Just be on the lookout for someone giving them out or ask a staff member.

Last time there were 2 entrances to the circle, either side of the stage which was split by the ego runway. That's where the wristbands were given out.

Yup essentially look for the big gap in the barrier either side, try to walk in, they'll either give you a wristband or tell you they've run out.

Yeah, I'll probably end up doing that. Cheers!

Okay, cool, so I might see you in the queue tomorrow then. What time did you plan on going to the venue?

Hello all, newbie here. Am going to the MK gig tomorrow and, like most people on here, am wondering what time to arrive!

I went to the last FF MK gig but didn't get a wristband (boo) but managed to blag my way into the mosh pit (yay!). I highly doubt I'll be that lucky again though!

Would anyone be driving back to London tomorrow night with space for me and my mate? Left it too late to book the coach and don't want to have to leave early to make the last train. We would be happy to pay petrol costs so we're not stranded
