  1. Radiohead touring in 2016

    Radiohead are at their best when they still have the melodies in there, but with a bit of experimentation. That's why In Rainbows was great, as it had some ace melodies. I'd say the list above is pretty spot on, but I will always love the Bends just cos it reminds me of being an angst ridden teen.

    Sunday is sometimes a bit shorter isn't it? Otherwise I'd say the are pretty much a whole set. 
  3. Headliners 2016

    Peace & love. :-) It's well worth the price, to me at least, hence why we have been back most years over the last 16. I don't doubt they could charge twice as much and still sell out to be honest - but it is alot more expensive than it used to be. (Won't bother about trying to double-guess the reasons for this). Total cost for say 2 of us is what? £500 ish for tickets. Save abit on taking your own food or drink etc. BUT, you could take the family on holiday for a week for that more or less! These are the sorts of decisions that mean it's not as easy as "Tarquin, are we going to DO GLASTO" (etc) this year. I wish it were. I doubt there are too many who attend this year who don't choose to spend £ on Glastonbury at the sacrifice of something else.

    It's a lot of money, as Neil has stated, it is also a lot more in real terms than it used to be.  I'll try to reserve judgement on why you'd pick up on my comment like that.
  5. The National

    This is true my friend, this is true. :-) 
  6. Headliners 2016

    Possibly just supply and demand?
  7. What advice would you give for first timers?

    This - when faced with a day of constant rain, getting ratted early on hot n spicy is the only way to go.
  8. Headliners 2016

    Agreed with this. It's a massive investment these days. 
  9. The National

    Maybe it seems closer to me cos I saw them headline the year before as well (that was in the Uncut tent) - then they headlined the year after on the Obelisk. Must just seem like the are there every year! How time flies.
  10. The National

    The National only headlined Latitude a couple of years ago didn't they?

    I've given up on those sorts of gigs. Don't have enough spare cash, and to be honest, standing at the back of the enormodome paying £5 a pint, a shitload on parking = not the best way to see a band. I'm willing to miss out on all these big occassions on the basis they may do Glastonbury 'one day' which most years we are at, and represents great value. Seeing Blur in Hyde Park about the week after Glastonbury in 2009 was the revelation. Been to a few gigs there over the years, but seeing them in daylight (due to curfews), with a big london crowd (sorry Londonders, lived there a long time and by no means a london hater, but the crowds are woeful), it dawned on me how rubbish those gigs are. And a 'golden circle'. please spare me. it couldn't have been any more different to the joyous experience the week before.
  12. The National

    Headline other or sub pyramid please. I don't want to live in a world where Ellie Goulding can be suggested to sub the pyramid but the National can't. Too big for the park or the JP.
  13. The National

    PPPPPPPlllllllllease let the National play this year!!!
  14. Acts Touring Around Glastonbury 2016

    White Denim - yes please!
  15. What advice would you give for first timers?

    Excellent point. To the same extent, I'm sure I am not the only one who has a relationship and many friendships that have lasted the test of time because in our youth Glastonbury proved to each other we have excellent strength of character in the face of adveristy.
