                          It is where we all came from, where I met FD. And I was not saying anything hateful about the place. I am talking about how we didn't believe our thread was a problem and I don't see any problem with mentioning it.

                            Ah that's why you have a grudge against the place. Makes sense

                                    I had just started using boards just before it happened and there was a lot of activity and suddenly I was like where is everybody gone. I was very into poker back then but now just come on here for daily entertainment. Keep up the good work. New BBV Live long and Prosper.

                                                Except the original reason the bbv was binned over there was nothing to do with number of posts. That came up later and appeared a convenient excuse to attempt to gloss over yet another admin fuck up.

                                                Fwiw all threads over there are locked now once they hit 10k posts.

                                                  It got madly popular and had to be shut down for whatever reasons, jailbait and the like. Can't remember what they said at the time.

For those that like it, there was a good program on BBC Mon and Tue night about the selection process for the 28 colleges involved (over 130 apply each year).

                                                                                                        Back late on Monday night from five days in Belgium, four of which were spent at Rock Werchter 2014. An absolutely awesome time was had, the length of the festival and the long days were tough enough on the wife and me, us being the wrong side of 30 after all, but so worth it in the end. We had access to the Rock Werchter Terrace, which was basically the first level of VIP hospitality, for the entire festival as part of our official hotel package, along with a few hundred others - it was a life-saver, wouldn't have lasted the pace without it. It basically was like a refuge in the heart of the madness, chairs and deck chairs both out in the sun and in the shade/under cover for hiding from either the mid-day sun or the occasional torrential downpour on Saturday or Sunday. There was also a massive private bar with better drinks than were available to the masses, a coffee dock, gourmet burger place, secure lockers and private access to the outside world and the coaches that brought us to and from our hotels. Oh, and also loads of fancy toilet facilities, regularly cleaned, which I imagine were a world removed from the portaloos the 'regular' festival goers had to deal with!

                                                                                                        No real idea of the amount of our package went towards paying for access to the terrace, which also seemed to host a few hundred low-level VIPs, but whatever it was, it was very well worth it! Would definitely have been happy to pay a few hundred for four day access in hindsight.

                                                                                                        The music highlight was definitely a 2.5 hour set by Pearl Jam, Eddie was on fire, the crowd went ballistic and the set-list ruled. Other highlights were Haim, Eels, The Strypes (these young lads can both play and act the part!), The Arctic Monkeys, Foals, Rodrigo Y Gabriella and my almost-as-good-as-Pearl-Jam 2nd favourite, Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters. Plant was the only artist, apart from a main headliner, who did an encore, as the crowd went mad for the entirety of the set... they opened with an awesome, amazing version of Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, and even the most obscure stuff they did was great.

                                                                                                        Wasn't particularly impressed with Metallica, had been pretty excited but the crowd wasn't up for it at all, plus they did this 'vote by text on our final song' thing which was a bit lame and seemed like a bit of a money grab.

                                                                                                        Already half thinking about going again in 2015 Will defo do a hotel package again if so, too old to go without some comforts for a full weekend!

An absolutely awesome time was had, the length of the festival and the long days were tough enough on the wife and me, us being the wrong side of 30 after all, but so worth it in the end. We had access to the Rock Werchter Terrace, which was basically the first level of VIP hospitality, for the entire festival as part of our official hotel package, along with a few hundred others - it was a life-saver, wouldn't have lasted the pace without it. It basically was like a refuge in the heart of the madness, chairs and deck chairs both out in the sun and in the shade/under cover for hiding from either the mid-day sun or the occasional torrential downpour on Saturday or Sunday. There was also a massive private bar with better drinks than were available to the masses, a coffee dock, gourmet burger place, secure lockers and private access to the outside world and the coaches that brought us to and from our hotels. Oh, and also loads of fancy toilet facilities, regularly cleaned, which I imagine were a world removed from the portaloos the 'regular' festival goers had to deal with!

                                                                                                                        No real idea of the amount of our package went towards paying for access to the terrace, which also seemed to host a few hundred low-level VIPs, but whatever it was, it was very well worth it! Would definitely have been happy to pay a few hundred for four day access in hindsight.

                                                                                                                        The music highlight was definitely a 2.5 hour set by Pearl Jam, Eddie was on fire, the crowd went ballistic and the set-list ruled. Other highlights were Haim, Eels, The Strypes (these young lads can both play and act the part!), The Arctic Monkeys, Foals, Rodrigo Y Gabriella and my almost-as-good-as-Pearl-Jam 2nd favourite, Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters. Plant was the only artist, apart from a main headliner, who did an encore, as the crowd went mad for the entirety of the set... they opened with an awesome, amazing version of Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, and even the most obscure stuff they did was great.

                                                                                                                        Wasn't particularly impressed with Metallica, had been pretty excited but the crowd wasn't up for it at all, plus they did this 'vote by text on our final song' thing which was a bit lame and seemed like a bit of a money grab.

                                                                                                                        Already half thinking about going again in 2015 Will defo do a hotel package again if so, too old to go without some comforts for a full weekend!
                                                                                                                        Slummed it in the main camping area with MrPillowTalk, Gholimoli and some non poker playing friends. Was my second time there and camping facilities definitely better than most places. Might consider the VIP hotel next time - how long was the coach trip? Any craic to be had back at the hotel?

                                                                                                                        Pearl Jam and Robert Plant were my two favourite sets also. Was my first time seeing Metallica even though been a fan from the beginning, this might of made it seem better to me for nostalgia reasons. They only matched Pearl Jam on their big tracks whereas Pearl Jam were consistently amazing throughout. Royal Blood were my top "new act". Artic Monkeys phoned it in and Black Keys were a little disappointing but it was hammering it down during their set. Kings Of Leon also put in a good show, better than the last time I saw them there.

                                                                                                                        The clash with Pixies was annoying. As was the fact you could only get one type of beer, coke and water at most of the regular bars. We found a wine bar & jack daniels/mojito bar but too far from stages to use while watching acts.

                                                                                                                        Still a great festival - probably only going to bettered by the one we are running in a few weeks
