  1. Frank Ocean

    I am debating a year off next year but the thought of Frank Ocean playing will be what tips it the other way. Plus he doesn't seem like the extensive touring type. Third Pyramid, maybe sub if he truly takes off. Those two slots seem pretty interchangeable these days as it is.
  2. LCD Soundsystem....

    Oh I had no idea who he was. But I now remember talking to him at Glastonbury in 2011 waiting for Imogen Heap. We disagreed on him thinking her stuff with Frou Frou was better than her solo stuff, but he was thoroughly lovely. On his own and chatting away to random people. Had no idea he was a minor celebrity, but he stuck in my mind enough from that encounter.
  3. LCD Soundsystem....

    I think LCD on an outdoor stage with no crowd must fall flat a little bit. As much as I fucking love them, I don't think they are a band that can benefit from that setting. Tiny crowd indoors, maybe, but I can imagine that gig was a bit flat
  4. The Legends spot

    Rod Stewart said in an interview last year he would love to play again, and specifically mentioned the legends slot.
  5. Adele

    Can't believe people didn't think she could do it. Absolutely fucking smashed it. The atmosphere down in the pit was just incredible. Never been in a crowd so friendly and excited for a headliner. (Yes it was primarily girls under 25 for the record). Ended up bawling several times, just couldn't hold it back for Hometown Glory and When we were young.
  6. Tell us about your 'Moment'

    I was absolutely bawling during Adele's We Were Young. Although I guess the first "moment" might have been during Hometown Glory. . . Not a dry eye down in the pit for her.
  7. LCD Soundsystem....

    Absolutely incredible gig. The songs, the performance and the staging was also simplistic brilliance. Shame the disco ball didn't descend again, as it was stunning. (Also, I think New York I Love you should have been binned but there we go). So glad they didn't disappoint. The crowd were also incredible, so friendly and euphoric.
  8. Glastonbury food with pictures

    In defense of the Growler, I find that the chips are well cooked (not covered in cheese ones are crispy), the cheese is strong and decent enough to stand up and the bread is the right kind for the experience. While it's not gormet, it doesn't strike me as plain old crap in terms of ingredients. And it is amazing value for money, at Glastonbury. Calories per ££ must be very high! I spend most of my weekend chowing down on gourmet delights, but sometimes on Saturday/Sunday morning, nothing beats a growler.
  9. Coldplay, what to expect?

    I remember when U2 had something special planned. Didn't it turn out to be Bono's piddling walk way? And one video? I don't trust bands that say this for festivals, logistics make it very difficult to pull off. Although I must admit I was impressed with Kanye's cherry picker... it's a shame it took him a false start and 5 minutes to get up there.
  10. LCD Soundsystem....

    We all play synth!! Do do do do do do
  11. LCD Soundsystem....

    Almost certainly will be in the same situation, might have a friend or two with me for LCD ... but more than likely flying solo. Still worth it. Does help I have seen Coldplay before, including once at Glastonbury.
  12. LCD Soundsystem....

    Anybody else contemplating a sprint from Grimes to see LCD? Can catch half an hour of her and not miss the start of LDC. How big will the crowd be do we think? I don't want a shit spot. UGH
  13. LCD Soundsystem....

    GUYS THIS IS THE DESIGNATED TOILET BREAK INBETWEEN ACTS, GO NOW OR GET LEFT BEHIND Having negotiated groups of 15-20 people at times at Glastonbury (and 20 plus occasional meet ups) I've learnt to be brutal...
  14. Sigur Ros

    Headliner twins if that happens.
  15. Secret resales

    The ticket order seems quite random. My boyfriend has his ticket, I don't, from the same order. No worries yet, loads not dispatched.
