Forgive my cynicism, but ... ooh, 21 miles! World saved! Someone call Greta. Seriously, as the festival that brands itself on rationality, your green credentials are pretty woeful. My lasting impression of my first BD is of plastic and styrofoam EVERYWHERE. Slapping a one-hour bike ride with a “reduce your carbon footprint” tagline is frankly insulting.

Will XR be invading stages again this year?

Liz Buttigieg i think you should do this 🤣 x

I'd have to bike back to Stockport to get my van🙄🥴

How do you pull your motorhome 🤣🤣

Chris Herron you can cycle there and leave Lew to shlep all your stuff! (Sarah Herron)

It's not about the actual ride, it's to raise the profile and awareness of cycling as an environmentally friendly mode of transport, and to encourage people to think about it differently. Many people don't even think to cycle to events, which is often entirely possible. This is just setting and leading by example, rather than the actual impact of the ride itself.

For those of us just cycling there without paying for the privilege... Is there somewhere to lock our bikes?

Stuart Moon 🚲🎉

Alexandra Lorimer 😳👀

Yeah right... Not a chance... Not even for a VIP upgrade. 🤣

It’s better than queuing to get away at the end of the night 😆

As a true visionary, Björk pushes the boundaries of what's possible when intertwining music, art, technology and science to create her own unique, innovative image.

We explore four decades of influential projects throughout her vast career.

Was gonna wear my Swan outfit this year but I hate it when two of you turn up in the same outfit 🎵😃

I can’t wait

When are day tickets going on sale please?

Going to be amazing 😍 🔊🎶❤

Last year, when Bluedot were asking us to wishlist acts for 2020, Bjork was the one I suggested. Never thought you'd get her. Bravo 👏

I'm getting a 404 error when clicking the link?

This will be ace!

Any idea who the headline bands will be this year. I’m assuming the named bands are just poor warm ups

Emily Godfrey Sophie Godfrey always remind me of you 2

What’s this track called?. Not really given Metronomy a chance. My bad!!!

Are these down to 2 now

Chris Hepworth Hooray! 🎉

Ben Cutting 💕

I love Metronomy, always have done, but them and Groove armada is a bit of a step back from the likes of Kraftwerk, new order etc. Maybe 2019 was just a fluke and I was just there at the right time?

Joel Parker !!!

Ed Wellard yes!!!!!!!!!

Can't wait to see these guys! 🤩

They never tell u where it is and if they do u cant see it

Disappointed with the line up this year. Bjork and Spiritualized stand out, the rest are a bit meh. My little girl at her first festival will make up fir it though.

Groove Armada and Bjork! Are you planning on siting deep space disco right next to orbit again this year? Had a lot of sound clash between the two last time

Dante Thornton we really should try and go 🙂

Plastic Mermaids

Very poor line-up this year. No intentions of going. Maybe see you again next year if line up is any better??

Spiritualized ❤

Please book Mr Wilson's Second Liners 🤞

Pretty much everyone on the line-up!

Tangerine Dream. Would like to have seen them as a headline band, but it will still be great to see them perfoming there.

Nobody this year. Lineup sadly not for me.

all booked👍👍👍👍

Michelle Elswood George Ham I’m getting Saturday tickets. Xx

Metronomy - forever 😝

No darkroom this year ? Sad times 😞

When is the Thursday headliner being announced?

Groove Armada 😍

Everything can’t wait !! X

Would it be viable to book some accommodation close to the observatory instead of camping?
