I went last year. Saw The Who and Roger Waters!

This year looks like Peter Gabriel & Aerosmith plus guests...

I'm pondering what to do..

Anyone else go last year or going this year?

I'd love to see Peter G but not bothered about the rest. Probably better off going to a proper gig like, innit?

That wasn't very helpful was it? :o

Ahh I was very lucky and got last minute free tickets to see the Who on the second day. Twas much fun although I wish I had been there the day before. I heard Roger Walters was incredible.

Roger Walters [sic] WAS fantastic! I have lots of pictures from last years Hyde Park Calling actually... Maybe I should post them somewhere...

I bought my ticket for the sunday this morning! :cool: Looking forward to seeing Chris Cornell!

Well, you'd probably pay the same to see a gig, so why not have a day out in Hyde Park in the sunshine tuh boot... :wiggle:

Besides, I'd be happy paying more to see me ole mate Pete - I'd prefer the ambience and I really like the shows that he puts on.

It looks like quite a relaxed festival? I've only been to metal festivals before, I'm used to lots of idiots shoving you out the way and pushing you around if you decide to go near the front. Am hoping this will be more laid back!!!

Did they have stuff for sale and things too?

It is pretty chilled out... It's only really food for sale with lots of different stalls there... It was only the first year last year though, so whether they'll branch out I don't know...

Yeah, he was amazing i thought... You can see where I was from the pic above... It was funny when the England match was on the big screen behind and Texas were on the stage with everyones back to them because it was the penalty shoot out! :whistle:
