    Yea, I realize I'm a bit spoiled. Less so now that they won't pay my expenses to show up there and goof off. I miss corporate apartments.

    What's the cheapest way to get from London to Pukkelpop (middle of Belgium)?

    Jeff, you can often get very cheap flights on budget airlines from London to Brussels. Keep an eye on surcharges, there may be charges for luggage and limits on carryons, and sometimes the airports are not the ones closest to city centers.

    While flying might sometimes be cheaper, I'd just take train (Eurostar), which should be around $75-100 each way. It's less fuss than flying. This would take you to Brussels Midi station, which is a large transfer point and you can connect via Belgian domestic rail to the city Pukkelpop is in, from there. They have a ticketing counter where everyone speaks English.

    http://www.eurostar.com/
    http://www.b-rail.be/nat/E/timetables/


    Edited - forgot to add, Eurostar needs advance tickets, the connection within Belgium will just be regular public transit and you buy when you arrive.

    Thanks, I'm weighing options but quite frankly the lineup isn't too inspiring at this point. Supposedly there's another round of additions to come. We'll see.

    Primavera - Glastonbury would be incredible. How do you guys have so much free time/money to do so many festivals? I barely had enough for Coachella this year!

    I brown bag my lunch & coffee and I don't have cable. That can easily be $200 a month in savings right there.

    Last year, I did Coachella -> Dublin (for Nick Cave) --> Prague --> Stuttgart --> Florence --> Barcelona (Primavera) --> Dublin (Radiohead) --> back home.

    Zero CC debt afterwards. Granted, I didn't pay to stay anywhere in Ireland.

    It's Pukkelpop or bust this summer. I'm going to be right across the English channel at the right time and it turns out youth Eurostar tickets (25 and under) from London to Brussels are ~$70! Then The $190 total 3-day pass includes camping and round-trip train service from Brussels to the festival grounds. So attainable. Bring on the beer and chocolate!

    Check out Birdy Nam Nam, Jeff. They are playing Friday at Pukkelpop. I have a feeling you will dig them.

    You bring a hell of a lot of baby wipes and pack a bin bag in your rucksack to waterproof it. Also, booze. Beerjacket effect keeps you nice and toasty.

    Yup, wellies all the way.

    Make sure they fit you properly, make sure to have worn them in a little bit before you go, or you'll be in agony. And bring lots of bandaids. When you are back in your tent, leave the boots off as much as possible to air out your little tootsies a little, or you'll come back with your feet warped into all sorts of new and interesting shapes.

    If you keep a hearty stock of dry socks, you should be alright. Wet feet are like soft vulnerable little mushrooms out there.
