  1. Acts you don't "get"

    All knob twiddlers, 'superstar' DJs etc, just don't get it, especially 'live' but above all others Bruce Springsteen, cheesy and naff back in the 80s, even worse now.
  2. Y Not Festival 2017

    This was on my possible list for next year, not anymore! i would say they should do the honourable thing and refund everyone full ticket price, but I doubt they could do that and ever run the festival again.
  3. Bagpipes and opening gates

    There was a piper at the gates at IOW this year, fortunately I had earplugs!
  4. First festival advice, not Glastonbury

    Lenor bottle
  5. Latitude Festival 2017

    My first impressions of the festival are good, apart from the toilets which are pretty grim and there's not enough of them, oh and sound bleed, they should rename it the sound bleed festival. apart from that it's a great little festival, spent most of my time between speakeasy, comedy and film tents although I did dive out to see the coral, being my 4th festival of the year( I'm pretty much festivalled out) I'm not bothered about much of the music but the rest is fantastic, venues seem pretty easy to get into, well organised and atmosphere pretty friendly.
  6. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    Or a '50's sci fi film.
  7. Glastonbury Conspiracy theories

    The pyramid stage is in fact the sister ship to the Black Fortress from krull, it is home to the Eavis, a slightly befuddled old man with a funny accent and short trousers, and only appears for 5 days a year bringing joy to the chair and blanket brigade,
  8. Trailer Tents in Camper Van fields?

    Yes, there were 2 next to me, did seem a bit of a faff setting up but they do have storage advantages over a caravan or Motorhome, I could get one in my garage whereas my Motorhome has to go in secure storage @ £500/year.
  9. Latitude Festival 2017

    Anyone else still waiting on campervan tickets? Got my admission tickets weeks ago but still no sign of a campervan ticket, god forbid they put it in the same envelope
  10. 2017 - The Changes

    Plenty in the campervan fields, kept clean all weekend apart from Sunday when they apparently couldn't be bothered.
  11. 2017 - The Changes

    They all seemed to be behind cordons, special pass only, workers only, performers only etc
  12. Tummy Bug ...anyone else ?

    Pot, kettle, black!
  13. Kris Kristofferson.....

    Utter car crash, I feel sorry for him, not sure he is mentally all there, badly advised or someone else is pulling the strings, art garfunkel got away with it last year in the acoustic tent which was packed with fans who love him no matter what. most people watching KK just know him as that bloke from Blade, certainly weren't fans and didn't know the songs, whoever put him on the pyramid should be ashamed of themselves.
  14. Tummy Bug ...anyone else ?

    No problems, and only drank from the on site water, more likely source would be people not washing their hands before eating, all sorts of things can be picked up from the toilets or whilst sitting on the floor, it is a dairy farm after all.
