  1. Kate Tempest - Extraordinary

    This might have been mentioned but I found a video of her doing strong and stable into ruin, performed a few days before Grenfell, along with the line - "let the nurses burn, along with every other resident who voices their concern" so scarily prophetic
  2. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    Yeah I understand, kind of realised that after I posted. My point was more that it's unfair to generalise the crowd based on economics. If possible, A lot of people save because they specifically love Glastonbury so much. I just think it's a lazy generalisation to make which doesn't really have much backing.
  3. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    I haven't read through this thread in its entirety so I'm likely to be repeating what has been said, but the frustration of hearing these same things over and over its getting so tiresome. It hasn't been hijacked by politics or the left wing, it's always been that way, it started that waY. Also It's getting really boring to hear people call out the apparent hypocrisy of people at Glastonbury being "middle class" etc etc , when in actuality you only need to have set aside £30 a month from sale date in October to balance due in April. Children even go free! I understand that what constitutes as a lot of money to put away each month / week is subjective, but if you decide as many do that you'll like to go the summer previous, it isn't much to put away occasionally. Obviously luxury camping exists, but that's s discussion in itself and doesn't reflect the majority of people there.

    found this down a tempest shaped rabbit hole today
  5. Monday morning sunrise on the hill, Glastonbury 2017

    I'm up the ribbon tower in this! Or queuing! Thanks for posting, have really specific memories of that morning around that area so is so nice to see it again
  6. Glastonbury Mental Health

    Glad this thread cropped up again! Was wanting to ask how everyone got on! Personally I managed to deal quite well, althougH the Wednesday was tricky. Kept having moments of thinking what I "should" be feeling, and for some reason had this idea in my head that all 200,000 people around me were completely relaxed and didn't have any stresses they were directly responsible for. It got its worst Wednesday evening when the on the hill, I just kept thinking that was no way I could imagine myself in a crowd, singing, enjoying the music - I just felt too guilty and irresponsible. a sleep ended up doing my head a world of good, and in truth Glastonbury did too. On the Monday when home I began to notice patterns of behaviour which only ever have a negative impact on me. I have a really bad habit of comparing myself to others in ways which I didn't even realise I was doing so before being at this years fest, and can generally avoid behaviour that will impact me. Additionally, I think it's really helped me not to be so lost in my mind - I think constantly having so much going on outward always watching and interacting with things I didn't have the space to think (in a good way!) also, walking! I walked 25 miles in one day at Glastonbury - the rest were around 15! Coming home and seeing my health app say something meagre just makes me feel lazy - so I have set myself to walk at least 5! just editing to add, I found mysf very aware of if I felt sick etc, it was like I was scared I was going to freak out a lot and now I look back it feels so ridiculous, which I'm annoyed about as I didn't really let myself go if that makes sense! I don't really have much of a vomit phobia or anything like that - but I think it's the moment just before. I had a bad experience with mdma in 2015 where I ended up in the medical tent (I think it was a combo of a large amount, first time, and a panic attack) and I think that has just haunted me a little - so much so that it's even crept in when I've been drinking! Crowds never bother me anxiety wise but this year they occasionally did in this way. For example we Managed to get quite close for the killers, and part of me just wanted to leave before it started becauSe I kept thinking I was going to be sick - so much so that I made myself feel sick! I think it has something to do with being short and then feeling like I just can't breathe in any fresh air! Sorry for the ramble! But as has been echoed here, hope everyone managed
  7. Ban Grime at Glastonbury

    Ban Elbow! On BBC way too much I suspect a dodgy deal
  8. Glasto 2020: Passing the torch?

    I'm 22 and just had my 3rd fest - although I've been trying get tickets since 2011 and due to much older siblings who had gone in years 2000 and 2003 had always longed to go! Thought I'd just weigh in a little. Part of the charm of glasto which I absolutely love is the plethora of ages!! My boyfriend and I always say that it is a part of what makes it so great because it a.) shows how brilliant the festival is itself, how much of a draw it is and how much people love it and b.) gives us hope that we can keep going well well in future (should it still be running) and not worry that we are starting to stick out! also I agree about dance music - I have never really been a fan and while there can be some decent little discoveries late at night (on Thursday we were up at Strummerville with a DJ playing load of Motown and soul - and it was one of the best atmospheres of the weekend) I would love there to be some spaces for more small bands after dark - not on the main stages or anything, but it would be good to not feel it a real mission to seek out not dance / Dnb

  10. Suicide Tuesday

    i'd been doing ok through monday and tuesday, although creeping in since yesterday, and now fully hit me are a case of continually thinking this time last week, completely breaking me
  11. Yes this is exactly what I was thinking!
  12. I thought it was always the last weekend in June - although I could be wrong!
  13. Someone had to do it! As as mentioned in another thread, I think I'm going to use the extra time to save properly and avoid a last minute scramble for ticket money!
  14. Your Glastonbury Song 2017

    Yep me too ! I remember reading in an interview that it's one of their least favourites so I really wasn't expecting it at all! The "STAAAY" absolutely got me. Also Read My Mind. I just adore Read My Mind.
