Definately will be there! Just got my tickets.....

How are they on fire spinning or should I just take glow toys? I probably just take green glo poi and a glo staff if I can finish it...

So if you spot me come and say hello. Unfortunately I look like a standard rocker (tall, long hair, goatee... ) so I'll be hard to find unless spinning!

Hope to see some of you there.

I counted 5 people with fire poi last year, although I only saw spinning outside the areana, they're very strict in that they won't let bottles holding liquid into the arena unless the seal is intact so i don't think you could get away with taking any fuel in there (although they were pretty lax on the first day or so) but you can spin just outside it, people timed it so they were there when everyone was leaving it. If you can find enough space you can also spin near the campsite.

You can however take non-fire stuff in there, I'll probably take ribbon poi, glo poi (red and yellow) and glo-ropes (blue) (as well as fire poi-hopefully I'll have enough room to actually pack my tent!) On the sat I think it was, there was quite a large gathereing in the radio 1 tent, which looked quite impressive.

I'l probably be looking for people to meet up with because at the moment, unless I can persuade other people to come I'm going with a couple- and a couply couple at that so I need help to not have to play goosebury all weekend! Plus none of my spinning friends are going!

I can't wait! The question is do I take my cheap ass glow poi and glow sticks or my more expensive but ubercool glow poi? Maybe I should take both, then if anyone asks for a go on them who appears worse for wear or whatever, I can fob them off with the cheapo ones. Don't hink I'm going to bother with fire. Don't even know if they would let us this year and its too much hassel with the parrafin

Me and my bf will be headin to leeds. Coming all the way from belfast! so excited.
I'm bringing my glow poi and my tails too for practising moves. No fire, being safe. There might be a diabolo in there and some crappy attempts at juggling aswell:)

If there is a good beat we'll be there.
long drops here we come!
LEEDS IS GREAT! ubbrollsmile

I'll be there. This be my 9th festival this year. Really got the bug. The joy of this one is that I won the tickets. biggrin



Just bought myself a new set of red/green/blue strobe poi. They really look the part. Spinning during the day with luminous yellow tails or black and red sock poi.



You'll be able to find me in the dance tent, probably all weekend. When not spinning poi i'll probably be soaked in sweat dancing myself into the ground. If you see me come up and say hello to a friendly Scottish guy.

Hey, saw you there with your fancy flashy poi. I was spinning the two green glow sticks by the main stage on that night. They looked good.
