  1. Suggest a good flag slogan

    Not much real happening in this fallow year, so to kill time suggest a flag slogan that you haven't seen but would like to. I'll kick off with:- This is Bob's flag Bob puts his flag down when the band is playing Be like Bob :-)
  2. Most 'overbooked' headliner

    Hi Who do you think has been the most 'overbooked' main stage headliner - just those 3 acts per festival alone. That is, not someone who for 'taste' reasons you may or may not have thought should have headlined eg Metallica, Jay-Z, Beyonce etc etc who each split opinion but were (probably) big enough on the world stage to be 'worthy' of a headline spot. No, rather someone who came from nowhere AND did relativly bugger all since/disappeared into oblivian. I start you with 1999 and Skunk Anansie !!! Who the F were/are they??
  3. Lack of facilities and end of Gate D hell

    Bloody hell. I'm glad I did the overnight queue again at Gate D. Was at frontish of queue at around 6pm on the Tuesday. After a very thorough bag search had a very pleasant overnight in the queue, almost got some sleep, and judging by the snoring many people did get some shut eye. They moved us to the gates around 7am and I was the first one through the gate at D. We were pitched up by 8am
  4. Overheard funnies

    I've looked it up now. It is a thing, you can buy it........and it looks like brown sugar. https://www.healthysupplies.co.uk/coconut-sugar-1kg-organic-sussex.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI79malsTr1AIVDbcbCh3digdcEAQYASABEgJMEvD_BwE Who knew?!
  5. The site newspaper on Sunday had a headline 'See you in 731 days" That puts the open date as Wednesday 26 June 2019, with a finish of Sunday 30 June. So still the last weekend of June, as the Monday doesn't count as 'festival'
  6. 2018 - quote from Michael

    Source? Find it unlikely
  7. Iffy Turnouts

    Bugger! Had Mrs Airwaves with me for first time who doesn't like crowds much so decided not to expose her to the usual crushes that you get at JP tent.
  8. Your (potentially) Contraversial Changes to Glasto

    Raise the stags / their platforms by 3 to 4 feet to give shorter people a chance of seeing the acts on stage. The sight lines for Ed Sheer an when he was on his dais were so much better. Oh, and ban flags at stages of course
  9. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    I reckon Ed Sheeran should give Radiohead the telephone number of his set and visuals designer
  10. Confirmed secret sets 2017

    But there's no TBA nor space in the timetable up at The Park
  11. The size of the crowds

    Can 2nd that. Just looked at it from trail track
  12. Overheard funnies

    Randomly walking Lad to his mum "Are they singing 'i want to live like the coloured people '? " Mum "No. It's common people dear"
  13. The state of the ground.

    Sod the shoes. I'm still in open trecking sandals
  14. Overheard funnies

    In the middle of the field for Radiohead, about an hour in Lady to her fellow "I could have been at Dizee Rascal instead of this shit! I can't dance. And I'm not drunk! " Mind you, seeing the comments on the Radiohead thread I can probably understand why ;-)
  15. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Not one for a conversation with the crowd is our Thom is he!
