I don't know if I'm going to any this year, as the mainstream festivals tend to be a bit pricey, and not necessarily worth it for the line up.
I went to Reading for the first time last year, as a friend managed to get me a backstage pass because he was an official photographer. I think the only bands I enjoyed were Muse and Elbow but I wouldn't normally listen to them. I was a bit unimpressed with the rest of it, it didn't feel interactive enough and the whole thing felt a bit soul-less. I agree with the festival organisers charitable work though.
I didn't think of asking on festival forums, thanks for that suggestion - may just be what I need.
I think there are a few festivals which focus on eco/green ideas, Shambala looks like that sort of festival I think. But if there are any more vegan/green festivals it would be really great if they advertised a bit more. I only managed to find out about Shambala through a copy of the Big Issue.
If travel is cheap, I will happily come with you to most things, I love new experiences after all :)
That would be awesome, I think the cheapest way to travel is carpooling, but I guess you'd have to be in a group to get into someone else's car.
