  1. General News Discussion

    Cool cool, just making sure everything was out there. Incidentally, it’ll be hilarious if David Davis starts advocating some form of registration for all UK citizens given his past form on the subject.
  2. General News Discussion

    What you conveniently omit to mention to push your point is that in Germany everyone has to register, German citizen and EU immigrant alike (and I’m pretty sure that’s the case in the other EU countries that require registration too). The UK is proposing registering immigrants only, and that’s why the EU negotiators have objected. If the UK decides it wants everyone to register their residence then they won’t have a problem. Just making sure the facts are there for you to have a proper debate, rather than people making statements to suit their prejudices, which after all you’re so keen on, Neil

    At the march today Neil?
  4. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    *wave* Don't let the door hit you on the way out.
  5. Electronica/Dance

    Hello good people of this thread - now that Glasto is fading into memory I've begun to focus on Boomtown, and wondered if you could give me some pointers on their DJ lineup: Already got my eye on Ben UFO & Mr Scruff & Joy Orbison, and maybe Eat Static, but I barely recognise any of the rest. My dancey plans at Glasto were along standard lines for this thread, Blawan, Paranoid London, Daniel Avery etc, but I really am open to anything :). Will mostly be going with the flow once I'm there, as Boomtown seems like the sort of place to not have many plans, but thought some pointers would be good. Many thanks.
  6. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    If exposing someone's political beliefs for what they are makes them feel uncomfortable then maybe they should look at why that is and whether deep down they know they're wrong. If a Tory took me to task about my socialist beliefs I wouldn't feel remotely ashamed.

    Hi Ben! Nathaniel (aforementioned thread lurker mate) was there too! Shame you didn't spot each other. Sounds incredible though. Bit sad to miss it, but then I was drunkenly yelling the words to Monkey Wrench into my sister's face over at the Pyramid so it couldn't be helped. Wish I'd seen him at Field Day now though. Agreed about Blawan being fantastic, got to be the best dance set I've seen. Shame I was a bit of out of it on Saturday night so either missed or didn't really feel it for the stuff on Genosys but hey ho. So good to meet you pal, we should all meet up some time!
  8. The Future of Metal At The Festival

    Seconding this. Singer and guitarist did the entire thing in the crowd at the bottom, or on top of the train (would love to have seen the faces of people walking through Shangri-La as they got up there and rocked out!). Amazingly entertaining. I'm slightly amazed no-one got hurt though, that bit under the stage is an absolutely lethal place for a mosh pit, the metal overhang is at the perfect height to break your neck. Bit of a rethink needed on that for next time if it comes back.
  9. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    I gave him a hug on Saturday morning at the Park. I think he was a bit taken aback, but I did ask first! Then just said 'Thank you for last night, and for everything', and let him carry on with his girls to meet Ed and his family by the Rabbit Hole.
  10. Frank carter and the rattlesnakes.....

    We did make it back in! The people sat outside were so not on board with what was going on though xD. Absolutely phenomenal gig, I thought it was going to be good but he totally smashed it with the speeches and performance and the crowd were so up for it. That into the Killers was the best time I've ever had for non-headline sets at festivals. Glorious.
  11. Pre-Glastonbury Break Up

    Yeah, that is (hopefully) going to turn out to be true. I did have to get over her, and this is a brutal way of that happening, but with any luck I can manage it eventually. And I may just do that Shout out to Fuzzy as well! This is the thing, the hurt is still there even when nobody's actually done anything wrong to you . Your situations are definitely worse than mine, it's just you don't have to spend all of Glasto with them, watching Radiohead and weeping at Nude/Fake Plastic Trees/etc in full view...
  12. Pre-Glastonbury Break Up

    It has to be the best place in the world to deal with it! Talk to as many random people as you can, who knows what might happen! I have sort of the reverse situation going on. Going with my two best friends where we've built something really special over the last year or so with our mutual love of music and in particular Radiohead. I've had a gigantic crush on one of the two pretty much the whole time, which I did tell her about, but she didn't feel the same. Then last month she got together with my other best mate :(. Thankfully we are going with other people as well, but I really haven't been feeling great about it since they told me and it's definitely stalled my Glasto excitement. They haven't been rubbing my nose in it or anything, and of course they are the same friends they were before, it's just so hard to get used to, watching them go back to their tent together etc. Sigh.

    That's every 6th Glastonbury
  14. Breakfast/Snack ideas

    Cheesestrings. When you need that tiny bit of sustenance to drag yourself out of your tent for a piss but your head and mouth are like a dumpster fire and you can't face eating something with any actual flavour.
