  1. Who should reform?

    I am an Abba fan and I don't want them to ever reform. Let the memory remain as it is. I think they are smart enough to know that themselves. I want Bellowhead to reform - just not yet. In about five or six year's time.
  2. The War on Drugs

    That is an excellent track. On the topic of U2 and the War On Drugs.... Article on WOD in the current issue of Uncut. Adam Granduciel finds himself at a dinner party at Jimmy Iovine's (as you do). Paul McCartney is about to leave when Bono goes up to McCartney to point out Granduciel: "You see that guy? He made one of the best records of the year". I like the War On Drugs. Saw them at the Pyramid. They are Waterboys fans too.
  3. First festival advice, not Glastonbury

    Plastic bags, toilet paper, Wellingtons, earplugs.
  4. The best place to **** was ****

    The best place to have a sit down meal was the Hare Krishna tent. I am out of likes, but loved @VolumetricFox 's video!
  5. Worthy View Review

    Only seeing @idb's photos now. Quite an eye-opener. From my vantage point (Hitchin Hill) it looks like a fancy place way up on the hill, but as per the photos it is the camping equivalent of a fairly dreary housing estate...
  6. V Festival banning stage times?

    This makes me thinks of these silly questionnaires that you often get after attending a festivaI, where they are trying to find out how they can get more money out of you in the future. I generally do fill them in because I wouldn't mind winning a ticket to the following year's event, and I do like to give feedback on how disappointing sound overspill is, but these surveys are always so money-centered. I go purely for the music and can only just about afford the festivals I attend, so am totally not interested in who sponsors the drinks, whether there are fancy camping and posh loo options, phone charging fascilities or any such-like. Glastonbury is great in that respect. You can bring your own food and drink, the program is free and you don't get into trouble for printing a Clashfinder....
  7. Your favourite bar at Glastonbury?

    Cockmill, in the Acoustic Field, although I was less impressed by the fact that the Guinness was unavailable a number of times. Nice tent though and usually possible to find a seat if you want to rest the legs.
  8. The Beauty of the Glastonbury Organisers

    I saw this yesterday. Great story indeed. Well done from the organization going out of their way to ensure she had as good a time as possible. I did wonder if there was any follow up from the police towards the perpetrator. All she writes is that the police recommended she requested a refund for the festival....
  9. Glastonbury Festival Wikipedia page

    Must show you my wall piece; a collection of sorts. There are a few other souvenirs mixed in with it, but it is mainly Glastonbury wristbands and mini (Guardian) programmes plus Roskilde wristbands.
  10. Your Glastonbury Song 2017

    Avalon (is where they were on). That is a great song alright.
  11. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    Oh, I know the point of the song. Frank said he often found himself at gatherings where things like 'Will the circle be unbroken' were sung and he wanted an atheist alternative. Fair enough. I just never liked the line "There never was no God" (the double negation was intentional). I am not even sure what my beliefs are these days, but that line just sounded unpleasant.
  12. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    I am a big Frank fan but was never fond of that song either ('Glory hallelujah'). I couldn't bring myself to sing the chorus, which was awkward as I do front row quite a bit. He has now finally dropped it out off his set, after playing it for about five years!
  13. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    As an outsider (Dutch, living in Ireland) I was not aware of this until travelling to Glastonbury last year. As the coach made its way down to the festival through these pretty Somerset villages I noticed "Leave" posters in many rose-filled gardens. I thought a 'Remain' win was a sensible given and only at that point did I realize the outcome could be otherwise.
  14. What made you cry at Glasto?

    Didn't cry at Glastonbury and I actually missed this band due to clashes. I just watched First Aid Kit though and 'Emmylou' made me cry (again). It's just the most perfect song. Thought their whole gig was excellent.
  15. Blog review, Glastonbury 2017

    Thumbs up @faymondo and @Brownie30 for your reviews. The latter particularly nice as written by a first timer. Really enjoyed reading them. And yes, that second barrier is a fantastic spot. I had the best experience for the Stones there, and was only slightly further back for Foo Fighters this time. The sound is always excellent there. Look forward to reading about Sat/Sun, Brownie30.
