4 days of rock, no sleep, and mud!

...(less than) 24 hours to go-oh-oh, I wanna be sedated...

Ok, I'm getting excited now!  I wasn't before, but last night we went for our food shop (if you know me, you know my life revolves around keeping my porkbelly happy!) for
RockWerchter!  

And now I'm psyched, with a pile of stuff on the bedroom floor waiting to be crammed into a backpack.  

Four days of music and rock!  Four days of no sleep, no showers!  Four days of stomping in muddy fields!  Four days of holding-your-breath-when-you-go-to-the-portaloo!  

Ok that last part really makes it sound bad!  But it's so much fun.  Especially when you have a Belgian cousin going as a vanguard to scope out a campsite and set up your tent, and erect *g* the marquee (I'm so immature, the word 'erect' *g*, can't say it without giggling!).

Check out the website for the lineup RockWerchter.  It's a 4-day music festival in a little town called Werchter (hence RockWerchter!), which is close to the town of Leuven (where the Stella Artois brewery resides!), which in itself is just a little ways south of Brussels.

Last year it was hot sun, baking earth, and dehydration.  This year it's going to be rain, mud, and trenchfoot!  Woohoo!  

I'm still vaciliating between bringing my funky cool wellies my cousin just gave me for my birthday (bright baby blue with big colourful polka dots), and not lugging the weight (because I'll have tons of food with me!).  Thoughts?

Really looking forward to checking out the Beastie Boys, Marilyn Manson, Pearl Jam, Snow Patrol, Metallica, Queens of the Stone Age, Damien Rice... and plenty others!

We leave bright and early tomorrow morning to catch the Eurostar to Brussels, so I won't be able to post til Tuesday.  Will tell you all about it then!

EXCITED!

Fun!
I gave up on festivals 2 years ago :) I guess my need to at least have a semi clean toilet available finally took over.
But yes ... FUN! Have a blast! Be safe! Come back with tons of embarrassing stories.

And the next time you are so close ... we need to meet up *gg*

Oh yeah, i have cleanliness and hygeine OCD that needs to be ignored for the 4 days.

I haven't even been to Germany yet - can you believe it?! 5 and a half years living over here in London and been so slack! Where are you exactly? I need to start mapping the places I want to go (based on the peole I want to catch up with!) in Europe before I (eventally) leave.

Oh yeah Lowlands! Cool, are there still tickets left for it? If I'm not clinging on for dear life on a rock wall in Chamonix that weekend, I'll be keen!

My BF bought our tickets today, yay! We're going with a group of friends. So, there are still tickets available, yep. I think it won't be sold out untill the very last minute. It's kinda a big festival, with 155.000 tickets :)

I KNOW!!! So excited! *snoopy dance*

I wish you were coming as well. You can so easily sit on my shoulders (ok, or I volunteer one of the boys!) and get the best view!

We love it over there as we reckon it's more chilled out (they're Continentals, man!) and you can get to the front of the crowd for any of the acts without too much problem. Even without being a big burly boy!
