Camping at Festivals

I'm planning on goint to Guildford this year as it's down the road and always has a good line up (Beth Orton's Ussually there <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif">) I was thinking of going to reading for the whole weekend on a camping ticket, and wondering what's camping at a festival, A friend went about 8 years ago to the Monsters of Rock at Donnington and told me some grim bathroom stories, but you also hear stories of tents being nicked, lot's of pick-pocketing and police stopping people on entry for drugs, which is a bitch cause I'd like to take a quater with me for the weekend to chill with. I'm just wondering if these stories are true or am I worrying uneccessarilly? Cheers Persil <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    I camped at V2000 and was nothing like that. There were no police checks or stolen tents that I know of, but then there were about 60,000 people there are I didn't speak to them all. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    My friend goes to Reading every year and she's never had any trouble so you should be safe.

    I wish I never saw the sunshine,
    Cos if I never saw the sunshine,
    Then maybe I wouldn't mind the rain.
