  1. Hi Brandycoke,

    Is there any chance you could email me your Glastonbury font please? To liz_bradwell@hotmai.com We're doing a Glasto version of midsummer night's dream and need to make some signs!

    Thanks in advance,

    LizB

  2. Had to google a twin axle Dethleffs Camper , looks like you'll have your own venue there GH . Your powers of persuasion know no bounds. Road.
  3. Hey Josh. Good advice from YOAS there. I'd take as many as you're comfortable carrying, and ignore russycarps, because as everyone who's ever been to a festival will know, you can't take glass bottles in with you. Anyway,they stopped making babycham in 1947, and re-labelled it nitromors. Enjoy your festival.
  4. Squeeze were excellent, but i headed to Other right after ,snd still caught most of St Paul and the Broken Bones, who i thought were also excellent. So you could've probably could've done both.
  5. Sounds like all you campervan field guys had a bit of a time of it then, hopefully didn't affect your enjoyment, and was a one off. Sitting at home on Wed morning checking the forum,and oneeye posted some very muddy pictures that he'd got from a friend already on the site ,and wondered if the traffic would be cleared even by the time i got there, but luckily things did get better. Flight delayed by 40 mins, so got through the gates by around Midnight on Wed ,and got set up fairly close to JP by 01.30 am . As usual ,had good intentions of meeting up, but to quote Burns, “The best laid schemes o' mice an' men / Gang aft a-gley.” What the hell was he talking about anyway?. St Paul and the Broken Bones were excellent at the Other stage.
  6. Also loved new location, and just a 5 min walk from camp, so ended up spending most of my time there. Saw some bands there that i didn't intend seeing either, and discovered some gems. Sound was absolutely spot on there too, unlike the Park, which has a similar set up pa -wise, but was spoiled for me by some completely overpowering kick/bass
  7. Mad dash from ELO (including a slip, and head first crash into someone on a chair) to get there , only to find that i could've walked it with time to spare. Would liked to have heard more from Infinite Arms, but still decent.
  8. Ah well, have a safe journey anyway, and hopefully the dog doesn't wear you out too much . Sun is absolutely splitting the sky at the moment up here, so hopefully i take the weather with me Look forward to meeting up. Enjoy!
  9. Morning oneeye, is that you onsite already?
  10. Don't worry about any rattling, you won't notice anything once its loaded up . these work great and will go over even muddy ground. Took this on the coach with wheels attached two years running, with no issues, but will probably depend on the driver. You can quite easily,detach the wheels ,put them in a bag ,and then just tape the frame on to make it look like part of your rucksack . Don't forget pliers.
  11. Thanks for the heads up carlosj, hope to catch the Difford set. Midnight was the time when i viewed this. This track was on an album called "No Dice" by Badfinger ,that i bought as part of a lot ,that a "Friend" was selling back in the eighties. There was about 20-30 albums ,and he needed the money to help fund his social activities, so he saw me ,with the word "Mug" written across my face, and presented me with the bargain of the century ,and with almost a whole Tangerine Dream collection included, how could i go wrong? Tbf, Tangerine Dream album covers are quite impressive, but unfortunately for me, the content didn't match. Lets just say that ,"No Dice"was the only shining light from that whole transaction . On a happier note ,he did end up getting arrested ,and jailed , though for a far lesser crime than selling on Tangerine Dream albums. I'm sure i read somewhere that this was also used as the intro song on some tv series way back, but googled it, and found nothing, so maybe i just made it up ,and its a complete lie .
  12. Must've been harsh in the winter months.
  13. Hopes and dreams. From the Anchor and Hope to the Pyramid stage this year . The original studio version of this sung by Paul Carrack, who is on at the acoustic. And a great wee vid from 1994. Seems Glenn Tilbrook has a history with Glastonbury that goes way back to 1971.
  14. Bought the the festival trolley from the e-fest shop and had no problems getting it on the bus. The wheels detatch from the main frame quite easily , so they can be put inside your rucksack or holdall, and the frame itself folds completely flat, so can be fixed/taped to the rucksack to look like part of it. Works great too ,even in mud .
  15. They're back again this year, so i'm avoiding gate B altogether.
