  1. Y Not Festival 2017

    Friday headliner cancelled. Friday main sub did a DJ set instead. Other acts didn't turn up/cancelled. Saturday timings changed at short notice, meaning most people missed who they wanted to see. Tents as a result too busy because of cancellations/short notice timings changes. Sunday cancelled completely. I don't think there will be a 100% refund but they are entitled to that for the shit show that the organisers put on. Just because they spent 2/3 of the festival in that field does not mean they were given what they paid for. Bad weather or not, all other festivals cope with rain. This one couldn't.

    I really wanted to see them but I overdone it the night before and couldn't move until about 2pm. I also really wanted to see them last year but trudging up to the Park from Kidney Mead, with a hangover, in all of that mud at 10:30am was just not going to happen.
  3. New security measures in place

    Would make the cleanup impossible if they try to take discarded tents down and people are still in them etc
  4. Ban Grime at Glastonbury

    I did think this was a half-arsed serious post until Tories were mentioned, to be honest.
  5. New security measures in place

    You have to go on Monday, traders start leaving at 6pm on Monday so the policy tends to be that you need to go before then, as the sign posts start coming down then too and stewards start to go home, making it poss. harder to find your way out/leave.
  6. Maccabees

    didn't get to see them on this final tour (Birmingham was when we were already at Glasto) but from a couple of conversations I've had with people who are occasionally involved with the band (including someone who joined them on stage at Ally Pally) it would seem like they felt like they hit their ceiling and they *hope* that breaking up, disappearing for a few years through various musical projects and getting back together will see them grow bigger. One can only hope...
  7. Which day do you prefer Wednesday or Sunday ?

    I hate Sunday. Line-up is always considerably worse than the previous two days and there's a melancholic feel to it. Plus it's way busier.
  8. Places you never made it to

    I've still not been to the Rabbit Hole, tried to get in once a couple of years ago but queues were just way too big. Haven't been to the Woods either. Not been to Arcadia properly at Glastonbury (walked past and looked etc) but saw it properly at RockNess.
  9. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    EIIRP just came on shuffle. Those opening beats last Friday and the crowd reaction
  10. Clash regrets...I've got a few

    ah yeah BBK vs Justice vs Metronomy Radiohead vs Flaming Lips vs Major Lazer vs Dizzee Rascal Would've seen all of those too if the clash gods allowed.
  11. Clash regrets...I've got a few

    xx vs Anderson.Paak vs Future Islands was a bit of a bitch. Went to xx and regret nothing but would've loved to have seen all three in their own right.
  12. Glastonbury 2020

    If killers play they will headline the whole thing.
  13. Your (potentially) Contraversial Changes to Glasto

    No. They all just go over their standard songs, it's not a backing track.
  14. Your (potentially) Contraversial Changes to Glasto

    I would just add that Stormzy, Skepta et al all do exactly the same thing. But they're much bigger and their tracks are more known so it's a little masked. They are very much deserving of main stage slots at Glastonbury. I'm a big Wiley fan but I'll be the first to admit his performance was poor any way, he just walked around saying the same things to hype the crowd up. Didn't look like he wanted to be there.
