I hope we'll make it there again. For the 2nd year in a row, we're not going, mainly for financial reasons. But also 'cause it gets more and more out of hand every year.

I do miss it, though. Should we make a plan for 2016?

Maybe we should you know. We'll be in the UK during this year's but I would love to go back. When you say out of hand, what do you mean? Busy?

Yeah, absurdly crowded. I mean, even more so. Though adding that back stage helped. The last couple of times we mostly hung out there.

Didn't see this - I didn't go this year because I had to do other stuff. I did go for a day in 2014, and while the crowds were huge, the event holders seemed to have gotten a better hold on guiding people around. I did stay at the less popular stages, but we did see Lucinda Williams and the Blasters last year, who were popular artists to see.
