  1. Who were your top 5 of the weekend

    Not the best year ever, line up wise, but still some real gems: 1. Super Furry Animals: pretty similar set to their show in london, but it was fab. Had huge expectations, and they were more than met. 2. Patti Smith: I literally knew none of her songs a few days ago, but picked up Horses on a bit of a whim. Absolutely magical. With anyone else, the Dalai Lama entrance might've felt insincere, but she was wonderful, a true artist. What album do I get next??? 3. Chemical Brothers: Ummed and ahhed a little over The Who, but more than happy I went with the chems instead. First time seeing them, and they were an awesome final main act to 2015. 4. New York Brass Band: a great brass band playing a bunch of random shows. Great fun, and an amazing singer. Non-music wise, lots of great food, an amazing beef/pulled pork place I hadn't tried before. Thought Kanye was a bit meh. Don't listen to him much, but saw him in 06 at roskilde and he was amazing, full strings band, and cool tracks. This time it seemed like musician-ship had been replaced by auto-tune. Ultimately though, tastes aside he's one of the biggest stars in the world, and well deserving of the headline slot IMO. Roll on 2016!
  2. Kanye West

    This is called 'selection bias'. Not saying that Kanye was good (I thought ok -amazing lights, but that lack of musicians, and tonnes of autotune was annoying), but it's not surprising that most of the people who left midway said it was shit.
  3. SOLD OUT!

    No, but you do need to get the coach on the way there. When I last went on the coach they didn't post the tickets, but handed them out on the coach itself, so you can't just drive over.
  4. You 2015 wish list

    A ticket for me and my gf. Beyond that, in an ideal world... A few acts I haven't seen at Glasto before: * Super Furry Animals * Belle and Sebastian A few I've never seen anywhere before: * Joanna Newsom * Tom Waits * Daft Punk One I regret missing this year: * Tinariwen And a headliner that's never going to happen: * Robert Plant coming back with his other pals, or * Pink Floyd (even without Roger Waters)
  5. Headliners 2015

    So will you be the sole "please no" commenter when the annual 'Led Zeppelin to headline?' posts start up again?
  6. Headliners 2015

    Maybe the 'used to be British but not any more' is a pre-emptive comment on Scottish independence, in which case perhaps Biffy Clyro (although I'd far prefer Belle & Sebastian headlining the Park).
  7. Metallica 2014

    correlation <> causation
  8. Metallica 2014

    I agree. I guess this is why -assuming Neil's info was correct- they were originally being lined up as other stage, rather than pyramid headliners.
  9. Metallica 2014

    You mean like the 'S and M' album? That would be great. Although someone here mentioned that apparently the lead in time to organise all that was absolutely ages, so might be difficult to fit in at (relatively) short notice
  10. Massive Attack excitement thread

    I don't know a great deal about them. Only saw them once, a couple of years back in London. It was an amazing gig, but they had a ton of guests for the different tracks. Is this their normal touring/festival way, and if not, how do they compare when the guests aren't there? Do they have recordings, or random backing singers?
  11. Metallica 2014

    They should do another S and M type orchestra show.
  12. Feel good glastonbury clips

    This is the video of my trip to Glastonbury 2010. It was shot on super 8... the old film cameras from the 60s & 70s that your parents would have shot their old home videos on (and some of the older efesters might have shot their original trips to Glasto). It's cut to Flaming Lips' Do You Realize?, my favourite track of that year. Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WU4pp-IWvoE

    Saw them at Brixton touring songs for the deaf and they were mind-blowing, but seen them a few times since and they seem less interesting each time. To be honest I'd rather see Kyuss lives at glasto if they're still touring.
  14. qotsa

    They last played just a couple of years ago, and it was a pretty high slot so I doubt it
  15. West Holts

    The wailers would be a decent addition too if they're touring at the mo. Saw them sub-headline in 2005 when it was jazz world, and they were great fun. Granted it'll never be the same as when bob was around, but the music would still be perfect for a sunny afternoon
