Yep, I'm Bort on the board and I believe I suggested it. Our group wouldn't be as big as atease's in 2004, of course, but it should be good times.

Hey

How are you making this happen? Just when you get there stick up a flag saying Arcade Fire or emailing the camping organisers?

I think i'll set up the same but for the British people.

Anyone interested? Us folks at Uskidsknow.com (their fansite messageboard) want to do one similar to the Radiohead (atease) group camp of 2004 (unfathomably awesome). It shall be a bunch of nerds obsessed with Arcade Fire.....are you in?

You know my name on there of course.. But yeah, I am torn between message boards...

No way, you can't set up your own segregated camp. Join our camp, if you don't mind sleeping next to american/canadian folk. What, are you too good for us?

Hey you! I remember that screen name. Are you the one who had all those amazing shots of the Arcade Fire's 2005 Coachella performance? Anyway, yes, we need more people. I figure once we have an official, exact head count we should make a formal request for our own little area.

Last year I saw a big group with a depeche mode forum banner. So you were a part of camp atease? I didn't get to meet everyone there, but who are you? Oh, I just saw there's a myspace in your profile. And... I don't believe we've met at all. I never forget a face.

Why would you want to rope off your campsite to seperate yourselves from the rest of the campers? I'm a huge Arcade Fire fan but wouldn't want to be cut off from everyone else. Fair enough camp together but why put up boundries? What if you met someone during the day who wasn't into Arcade Fire? Would you stop them coming in your site?
