Essential info for the weekend - stage times, map, where you can find beer...
With just one sleep left before High Voltage opens its gates in 2011, we thought we'd give you a few bits of info that may help you plan your weekend.
There will be Planet Rock presenters prowling the site, so say hello if you spot one, and we will once again have our tent selling merchandise and giving away a truly mindblowing pair of KEF Speakers.
It's been raining for the past week or so in London, but the sun has been out today and it's looking not-too-shabby for the rest of the weekend. However, there's still a few patches of mud here and there and it's a little wet underfoot at the moment so probably best avoid those flowery flip-flops and wear some sturdier footwear.
Keep an eye on the weather HERE
The gates to the site open at midday on Saturday but the on site box office opens at 10 am for pre paid collections only. At 11am the box office will be open for all collections, guest list and cash sales. Tickets will be available on the door subject to capacity.
The box office is situated next to the main entrance.

THE BEER FESTIVAL
There are over 30 ales and ciders on offer at the inaugural High Voltage Beer Festival - we're particularly excited by the exclusively brewed Brodie's High Maltage, although the Ascot Ales Alligator Ale and Gadd's The Ramsgate Brewery – Dog Bolter sound equally intriguing.

The Planet Rock tent is in a different spot this year, located between the Metal Hammer Stage and Classic Rock Stage.
