  1. Tom Petty

    Wow, this one really hurts. Was very fortunate to have seen him & the Heartbreakers on four tours down through the years & their music has been an integral part of my life. He will be sorely missed. We all need to take every opportunity to see these older musicians whilst we can (though 66 is no age) & I wonder who will take their places in 20 years time. Thanks for the memories Tom RIP
  2. Glastonbury 2020

    They used to, pretty sure i remember seeing Roger Chapman (Family) on Thursday night in 82, very drunk & using a cardboard shoe box as a tambourine. Voice was spot on though.
  3. Acts you don't "get"

    Arctic Monkeys
  4. Mercury Prize 2017

  5. Kate Tempest - Extraordinary

    Truly a genius, seen her before & she was utterly brilliant but never seen the intensity of Fridays gig. The way it transferred to a bigger stage without losing any of the power was a joy. Not many dry eyes around us. The world needs more Kate Tempest.
  6. Glastonbury 2017 Awards

    Best Act: Radiohead Best Song: Europe is Lost- Kate Tempest Best Discovery: Loyle Carner Most Frequented Pyramid
  7. The XX

    Have to agree, thought they were stunning. New headliners are desperately needed & its the obvious next step, longer set, darkness, sure it will happen.Kate Tempest, XX, Radiohead, doesnt get any better.
  8. Distance walked

    58 Miles from Thursday lunchtime.
  9. Glastonbury Moments 2017

    Europe is Lost was ferocious too. Genius is an overused word but applies to her
  10. Thursday arrival - how are you coping?

    Still at work until 17.30 but not really doing a lot Pack the car tonight & off at 7.30 tomorrow. Always go on Thursday & never queued but think it might be different this year. Should be on site this time tomorrow Cannot wait
  11. Secret resales

    I`m working & have for a few years (recycling crew) We have letters to take to the recycling cabin outside PED gate B. Id is then checked (d/l photo) & you get a EPO wristband & festival worker band thats a different colour. Wouldnt have thought you would get in without both
  12. Weather 2017

    I`m sure all the ticketless in the secret resale thread wouldn`t care too much about the weather as long as they had a ticket. Their pain will always be worse than ours
