    My only advice from when I went in 2014 is to get there as early as possible, and know exactly where you want to be (if you’re not in the grandstand) as it fills up so quickly.
    Again, if you’re not in the grandstand, then take a couple of seats, otherwise you may find yourself forking over nearly £80 for two chairs.

    And finally, other than the essentials (water, sun cream etc), try to get near a big screen, it makes it much easier to keep up with the action.

    I’m going for the 1st time too, camping for 4nights with GA tickets any tips welcome. I was found to by some super cheap deck chairs as planning to abandon them if necessary to try got to the podium.

    Yeah deck chairs are a must, know what corner you’re gonna try and get to, get in early and get a spot for the chairs. If you’re going to the toilet or to get some food make sure someone stays with the chairs to make sure no-one moves them.
