No transport but VIP camping tickets (i assume showers and clean bogs) etc.

Appearantly hospitality is included - drink and food. I'll beleive it when I see it - not wanting to get my hopes up.
Sounds good. I’m going too, but only on the Saturday. My friends mum got us free tickets. I’d much rather be going the Sunday cos the line up looks much better but I cant complain considering I’m not paying for the ticket.

Well done though, you’ll have a ball. :D
Yeh and I just won a mobile phone (worth 160 squid) by texting the number inside a bounty bar - dont even eat chocolate first time I did it.,

Oh, and I won one of the Coastline Ibiza CD's from the Space Website. Go and you will find my name - you will have to guess who I am (clue: its in capitals)

I am well buying a lottery ticket this weeked,
Yeah you could, by swapping my Saturday T in the Park ticket for your VIP weekend one. :p
Nah the reason I’m not going all weekend in the first place is cos I’m so skint. I got my ticket for free, that’s the only reason I can afford to go.
I'm going as well and am very excited.

Laurent Garnier, Vitalic, Dave Clarke, Roysopp, Dj Sneak, Richie Hawtin, Green Velvet...it's all too good!

I won my tickets too on Beat 106. Did anyone actually pay for their tickets?
That is WAY too cool. Could you record the Kings of Leon, Mint Royale, R.E.M. and White Stripes concerts?

OH, ya, and if you like rock click below
I don't usually frequent the dance tent when I'm at T tho I do usually pop in a couple of times to see what it's all about. If I was going would probably just go Sunday but Saturday would have liked to see the White Stripes and The Cardigans (and maybe the Proclaimers!!). Line up on Sunday looks fantastic, def recommend The Charlatans and Feeder. They will do bouncy, energetic sets and Turin Brakes are good for something more chilled out. Seen Coldplay a few times and they are always good as are the Sugababes, very talented girls and put on a good show. Think the coral will be good too. Hope you have fun. I am green with envy!!!!!!
I think the Slam tent line up is fantastic. I’ll probably be spending a lot of my time there.

I'm not really very educated when it comes to dance acts (is that blasphemy on this site?!?) :oops: . So wouldn't know who to recommend in the Slam tent but if it looks good to you K it must be! My boyf is probably quite lucky cos when we go to Ibiza he chooses where we go because I wouldn't have a clue who most people are! I am steadily learning tho and know what genres of dance music I like and don't like.
White Stripes have cancelled :(

As for Slam tent, the line up is amazing. Almost EVERY act is worth seeing. I reckon it's one of the best dance line-ups (especially for techno) I've ever seen at any festival, anywhere.

I'm especially looking forward to Laurent Garnier (very rare appearance), Vitalic (live set-electro techno), Dave Clarke (one of my favs), Dj Sneak (a god) Royksopp (I'm sure you'll know through 'Eple' and 'Remind Me', also Live), Green Velvet (La La Land, Flash), Richie Hawtin (another god)....
I will also be up at the front of the slam tent (esp 2-4 tomorrow for Deep Dish) by the speaker on the left if you want to say hello.

Look at my profile for what I (sort of) look like but there are dodgy old pics! I will be wearing my knee-length combat grey skirt, trainers/wellies, and a white and red vest top.
