    Personally I'd go for glastonbury, the atmosphere is like nothing I've ever experienced before.

    I'm biased though, I live in Reading and the thought of camping 20 minutes away from my doorstep doesn't appeal.

    Whatever you decide I'm sure you'll have a great time. <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Glastonbury - it is the best one, the atmosphere is amazing and there is something there for everyone.

    No contest.

    I'd say Glastonbury too - the mix of bands and types of music is better, the stalls are better, the comedy and other non-musical entertainment is better. You get to see naked people in the green field, it's just so goddam colourful and great. You meet a better variety of people and you have the greatest laugh ever. The first aid, emotional help, religious or spiritual help and other info is better than any other festival. It's powered by a wind-mill.

    What more can you need.

    As long as it doesn't piss down with rain it's by far the best one.

    There's nothing better than camping in the fiels alongside the green field, with an amazing view of the site and chilling out on the grass.

    Depends what kind of music you want, if your tastes are heavier than most, Ozzfest would be good, although its only for a day, there a two nights of camping, and about 26 bands.

    Reading was fantabulous last year and i recommend it highly. 5 days makes it the longest festival i think, and its slightly cheaper than glasto, plus the line up will be better in my opinion.

    i'm going to reading and ozzfest, see you all there!

    Leeds was ace last year. I'm going to Ozzfest definately. I'm going to Leeds if I don't get called up for the Navy beforehand.

    Ok, I am currently working as an international festival promoter as my placement job in france, so I'll try and help you out:

    Firstly, are you planning on staying in the UK for the festival or would you consider going abroad?

    Im promoting the www.festival-benicassim.com which is a 3 day concert festival in Spain in August, and is cheap considering you get 9 days free camping. The english version of the website is under construction at the moment, but if you're interested in a cheap holiday in the coast of spain, with a massive festival, i definately recommend it as the line ups are always quality rock/pop, electronic and indie music !!!

    If you decide to stay in the UK, yes, glastonbury is absolutely wicked, but i would recommend trying the 'Isle of Wight' festival that is being celebrated this year since its last 1 in 1970 (that just about tells u how big it was) check out www.isleofwightfestival.com I would definately go if i were in the UK this year !!! <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Right I'm off to that without a doubt ...especially as it's on my doorstep. <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    emmex, you didn't say what music you're into but if you like dance music Homelands is quality.

    Personally, i would go to Reading. Last year it had 7 or eight stages, and they were all different, and its only £80 to camp too.
