Hi all, flying over from Ireland tomorrow morning, cant wait

Could someone maybe answer a quick, probably braindead question?

There's 2 of us going, and it says we have to collect our tickets at the box office from 14:00. Obviously we'd like to queue and get gold wristbands, but will they be given to us that early in the morning considering we wont have our tickets (and wouldn't be able to have them until 14:00) ? Or how does that work?

Thanks in advance!

Mates just phoned me from the gig, Dave's voice was LOUD!!!
i think they are referring to more professional gear. Would imagine a decent digi slr would be fine

Cameras will depend on security. A compact will be fine, but anything bigger and you're risking confiscation. I've seen people get them in, but I've also seen then taken away. Up to you if you want to risk it, but it's no way guaranteed.

Judging from Twitter, there have been The Pretender, All My Life, Best Of You and Dear Rosemary at various points.

Yes - one weekend MK is playing host to the Foo Fighters, and the next we get fucking JLS.

Aye that's how we roll. Although somehow this means there was a strange electronic band called Walking Aborton at the Battle of the Bands event I was at last Thursday amongst 3 other rock acts.

... wow. That's awesome.

Wow, some people's tastes.

I need to stop reading twitter as there's too many spoilers but can't stop as I'm too nosy.

I spoke to them at the box office today. They said the planned to open "around noon". Also said there was a queue at the box office when they opened today. The guys at the gate told me you can't get a wristband w/o the actually ticket in your hand

Wouldn't bother me as much if See Tickets weren't so bloody useless in sending out international tickets
