    Every year I use a calendar. When it gets to one day before the festival I know the festival is really close.

    I'd say people who punch people at gigs should be thrown out myself, but each to their own.

    It's a different ball game completely if the ground is dry. sometimes when it's muddy it feels like you have to work for your fun, where as when it's sunny and dry the good times just wash over you

    I like jump up...there I've said it, my guilty secret. Actually I couldn't give a frogs arse who knows that. But it is all about time and place isn't it? Time - very late when mashed place - Boomtown sector 6 It's like people who look down at those that watch chic flicks, or read holiday beach books....who's to say that what you like is "better" than anyone else's choice? I like lots of genres of music for all different reasons and use different genres for different occasions - This year I have discovered that deep house or trance is brilliant running music. I can lose a good hour or two dancing to psytrance of an afternoon. So yer I might be one of those tourists at the SE corner, not because it's the place to be seen, but because I'm curious and want to dip my toe into different music. I just needed to say that......I'll get my coat.

    If all of this is leading to Liam G...well. Why would you brag about keeping him secret for six months and claim it's a really big secret? Also, we were under the impression the secret would get announced. Clearly they have a track record of having exclusive acts from other fests doing secret slots, but outright announcing it beforehand? It's clearly possible but my uneducated take is that Liam is a secret but not what Emily was referring to. His name isn't 'Kendrick Lamar' for a start.

    Really muddy conditions can have their benefits. I absolutely love it when it has been really muddy and then the sun comes out and performs a fast dry. This can create conditions underfoot that resemble walking on a firm marshmallow. Always reminds me of the advert in the 80s for Softmints.

    @deebeedoobee You are, of course, correct, and despite my own personal obsession, I celebrate the fact that there will be thousands dancing all through the night in the greatest place on Earth. Bring it, Glastonbury Ben

    I'm a bit old for it these days but just popped in to join the 'I first crowd surfed to Ash' club, when they had a residence at the Ashtoria, 1997

    My one and only time crowd surfing was at Eminem with Marolyn Manson at reading in 2003 (I think). I said to my mates I'm going to the front for this to which they laughed and said good luck. I got to within about 15/20 rows from the front and then the set started. Within about 20 mins the crowd were all falling over each other, girls screaming etc etc. From memory they even stopped the set and asked people to calm down. They didnt, crowd carried on going mental so I thought fuck this and asked the bloke next to me for a foot up. I started surfing towards the front. Now, as I got to the front I could see the security lifting all the short skirted, short wearing chicks down gently, they walked up to me, took one look and kept going to the next hot chick. The crowd holding me up then thought fuck this and launched me over the barriers where I fell about 8 foot onto the ground. Luckily as I am a fully trained ninja I broke my fall, stood up shrugged it off and walked out of the side and went and found my mates. I have not crowd surfed since !

    Morning all A couple of days ago i asked what the green and red arrows were for. Green easy for anything you like but was unsure where you'd use a red. That question was cleared up last night. What a prick. The effort put in to try and secure tickets by the lovely people using this site is second to none. Big love to all of you and keep the faith

    "And there is a standard technique of privatization, namely defund what you want to privatize. Like when Thatcher wanted to defund the railroads, first thing to do is defund them, then they don't work and people get angry and they want a change. You say okay, privatize them and then they get worse." Noam Chomsky

    I thought it was common knowledge that Prince Charles has been Kasabian's sound guy for a few years now. Do your research, NME.

    Ok not heard anything to back this up but my choice would be Peter Gabriel either as the legend spot or maybe headline on the Other stage been a while since he last played Glastonbury?

    I think it's difficult not to get personal in politics. When you are 'on the ground' and working with, or living with, the people directly affected by Tory policies, it's hard not to get angry. When you see people with very little losing the small amount of support they had, and see the fear they have for the future, how do you not get angry? Your anger starts with the politicians; when you hear them talk about "everyone sharing the load" but then see more cuts on the most vulnerable, and more tax breaks for people already well off, when you've seen 30 or more years of the failures of "trickle down" politics, eventually that anger goes past the politicians and also lands of the people who keep voting for them. In the peak of anger you consider Tory voters are deliberately vindictive on the weakest members of society, but even when you calm down you can only downgrade that view to turning a blind eye to their problems. How can you not make it personal when you see people choosing to vote for a party that you think are ruining people's lives?

    Two years ago, and two days before the festival, I was congratulating myself on not buying a ticket, given that the forecast had been, and still was, rain for every day. On the Wednesday, around midday the forecast changed, the sun came out, I bought a ticket on a whim that evening, and the next day drove all the way from East Anglia on my tod, having packed very poorly. The festival, as you will know, was dry pretty much all weekend, and despite very quickly realising I had forgotten many things, included a sleeping bag, I became a zealous enthusiast for a festival I'd been meaning to check out for years. I was then rewarded the following year, having cajoled a pal into coming with me, with glorious sunshine. I realised then what I say to you now We have nothing to fear but fear itself.

    So... I've listened to the whole of the Antal set and, in fact, had already listened to the Hunee set. Guys, guys, guys... That they are terrific mixers is not in any doubt. But. Awww man, it's just too flipping major key for me! I can't lie. I like my music minor. Pretty much all of it! I listen to loads of electronica, ambient, drone etc. and almost all of my favourite stuff is minimal, glitchy and minor in key. I guess it's the extrapolation of that into dance music for me that is the reason why techno resonates so much - and, indeed, why most of today's tank top selfie tech-house (love that!) doesn't. Palms Trax? For this Benny...? Face Palm Trax. I am very happy to go searching for stuff in the line up and I know I'll find it. But funky electro-pop and disco, no matter how well mixed, might not quite be it! Ben

    Huh I don't think £50-odd for a band that's headlined the biggest UK festies and Hyde Park a couple of times is so bad. Like what were peeps expecting? I see that BEAK> are the Castlefield supports, so says Seetickets.

    If you want to get a sense of the size of the place, including the infamous drainage pipes, I filmed it being dismantled (along with everything else) when I hung around for a while, a couple of years ago. Arguably spoils the mystery, but if anyone wants a look, its at about 5.40 on this
