  1. Arcade Fire

    It was ridiculously hot in there last night. Made for a fervour. So much fun and very similar to the Sc**thorpe show. Liked the boxing referee call out to start the show. Don't really get the fuss on Headlights, but it was a nice surprise to hear something different. Not sure how they'll ever top these type of shows/setlists.
  2. The size of the crowds

    Guy caught selling fake orange/black wristbands at Castle Cary - http://www.somersetlive.co.uk/whats-on/whats-on-news/glastonbury-2017-man-arrested-selling-139352
  3. JUSTICE

    Great set. Top lights. Could easily have headlined Other.
  4. Surprises

    Unreal sound. Was right at the front. Just watched again on iplayer. So good.
  5. Top 5 Acts

    1 Flaming Lips 2 The Killers 3 Phoenix 4 Everything Everything 5 Sigrid I've had stronger music years, all round
  6. The National

    One thing i know. I'm REALLY looking forward to the new album. New songs were top. Roll on Hammersmith.
  7. Surprises

    Ah, well, glad they played in the end! Must have been great there.
  8. Surprises

    The biggest surprise was Toots and the Maytals not turning up! Sure they had their reasons, but was annoying as Saturday's movements were hinged around the set, and, judging by the crowd, many others too. Everything Everything were worth the wait too.
  9. The size of the crowds

    Did feel busier walking around, but not so busy at the stages. Probably because of more t shirt weather, compared to last couple of years, i noticed lots of people wearing other wristbands to the standard green one, particularly people wearing orange and black ones. What were the orange/black ones for? Guest passes?
  10. Distance walked

    63 miles. Most yesterday.
  11. Phoenix?

    Yeah. Really good set. It had the potential to be even better if the mirror display screen's visuals were working - hence the 30 min delay to see if they could. Will have to go Ally Pally show.
  12. Corbyn appearing on Pyramid!

    And the crowd says JE.REM.Y.... JE.REM.Y...
  13. Arcade Fire

    Sc**thorpe was unreal. Was the other side to Win etc, but didn't bother me - lots more space this side + Sarah Neufeld. Can't think of a better gig experience I've been to. Was surreal walking around the quiet, pretty lifeless, town before the show thinking the best live band in the world were going to play in the local theatre. Luckily got a York Hall ticket too. Counting down the days!
  14. Phoenix?

    New stage set up looks quality. Imagine the late night tent setting was a preferred choice over, say, daylight Other. http://www.nme.com/blogs/nme-blogs/phoenix-shaky-knees-festival-2017-2072013
