  1. Glastonbury Festival Wikipedia page

    I look at the wikipedia page on occasion for reference and I notice there are a lot of gaps (especially pre-2000) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glastonbury_Festival_line-ups Does anyone know how to fill it in (I'm a bit stupid and don't) As i notice there is a programme from 1998 on sale on ebay and the seller has posted most of the line up with stage times etc...would love to see the line up pages more full. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Glastonbury-Festival-Programme-1998-Pulp-Blur-Bob-Dylan-Robbie-Williams-Primal-/172751343090?hash=item2838c84df2:g:R4wAAOSw8HBZNDPN
  2. 20 years of eFestivals

    Wasn't this site the official site for the festival back in 1998? How did that come about?
  3. 20 years of eFestivals

    Started posting on here asking about going to Glastonbury 2003...which I never made it to, made it to 2004 and never looked back. Have always enjoyed this forum, like the people who post on here. Would be fun to see some screenshots of the forum from 1998!
  4. Glasto 2020: Passing the torch?

    I came away from this years feeling something was missing for me that 'spark' I used to get from going...I wonder if its because i've been so many times now (done the last 12 in a row) that it's lost its zing for me? Has anyone else reached a similar number and given it a miss for a couple of years or re-found their enthusiasm for it somehow? I certinaly think its time for me to give the class-A drugs a massive scale down if I go in 2019, as that just seems to wipe me out until early afternoon the next day! I'll be nearly 38 by the time the next one rolls around, has anyone else had to have a change in tactic/approach to the festival to be able to still enjoy it?
  5. Rate Your Festivals

    2010 - great weather, good laugh with mates...still my fave festival ever 2008 - good mates, good drugs, a lot of us went, fairly good weather, Jay-Z was interesting.. 2004 - first one! 2005 - good laugh with a small group of us despite the thursday night downpour 2009 - good crowd of mates and decent line up 2016 - had a good laugh with new friends despite bad weather. 2013- good weather, but recall it missing that spark that year for me for some unknown reason 2017 - good weather and enjoyed saturday, but family health problems with my dad overshadowed it. 2015 - good laugh as i recall, but only two of us managed to get tickets so wasn't the usual blast we usually have 2014 - was decent enough but over indulged on the thursday night and spent a lot of friday ill in my tent! 2011- weather nearly ruined it, and i was having personal problems at the time which meant i didn't really enjoy it. 2007- weather ruined it...thank god for drugs.
  6. Offical T-shirts...

    I'll order a XXL and hope that it fits!
  7. Offical T-shirts...

    thanks strange they have them in cms rather than inches! xxl for me?!
  8. BBC Highlights Show

    In fairness to KP and LG the wind was howling around the site at that point so the sound wasn't great for either.
  9. Offical T-shirts...

    Anyone got an idea how these size up? I want to buy one now as I forgot whilst I was at the festival, but the size guide seems to be in weird measurements? https://webshop.stanleystella.com/content/files/SizeGuide/STTM528.pdf Usually i'm a 46 inch chest..but these are in cms?!
  10. BBC Highlights Show

    Finally I get to actually hear Liam Gallagher as the wind was blowing the sound for him all over the place at the time.
  11. Campervans! When did you arrive and where were you put?

    Out of interest, does anyone know how much it costs to rent a campervan? Was thinking of hiring one for Bestival next year…
  12. Weather 2017

    I found the Wednesday too much to handle. but apart from that it was perfect festival weather. Warm enough so you didn't have jumpers/jeans on and could just run around in shorts and t-shirts. cool enough so you got a lie-in the mornings and a bit of rain to dust down the site. 9/10 for me!
  13. See Coaches - a bit of a shambles...

    I didn't get the coach this year but I did from Oxford in 2015. Coach there was efficent, checked ID on tickets arrived on time etc. Coming back, it arrived 90 mins late, then the driver got lost on the way back trying to take a shortcut Got back to Oxford about 1pm....having been at the departure gate for 7.30am!
  14. 2018 Festival - Glastonbury replacement

    I've done at least one festival since 1999 and whilst it would be weird going a summer without one I'm seriously considering it. I've wanted to go back to New York for a long time (last time was 2001) and my girlfriend has never been...the money I would spend on a festival would pretty much pay for me to go! Might give Bestival a go at its new location if I do anything at all.
  15. Your (potentially) Contraversial Changes to Glasto

    Just read through a lot of this thread....some of which I agree with but I think some of it is just a generational thing and is what us lot who've been 'festivalling' for a number of years now just have to accept and put up with. Anyway heres my two-pence worth on this years event. 1. Mobile phone use. Absolutly obscene. I had an argument with one of my mates who was just constantly on his phone to his girlfriend (texting) caused a bit of a scene but i had to say it. Walking across back across the other stage with some pints before an act i noticed loads and loads of people were just sitting staring into screens. Not a Glastonbury thing i know but its sad its come to this. 2. The site seemed a lot more packed this year, and we encounted a lot of people with fake wristbands/had fake tickets. Not sure if there any numbers on how many got in. 3. Might be worth offering reduced value tickets for entry on Thursday 8am onwards only could help spread the queing problem that is currently happening on Wedesday AM each year. 4. I would agree there definatly seems to be a lot more posers there these days, even since i started going in 2004, types that i wouldn't expect to encounter....perhaps a refelection in some of the acts being booked these days that you used to see on the line up for V ! 5. No campfires anymore, again i've noticed this happen in the last few years can't say i've really seen them much in the last 10 years or so. Probably because there is so much else on offer elsewhere!
