  1. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Oh, and annoying Odo of course.
  2. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    I expect serving drinks, getting involved in deals with the Cardassians, the usual.
  3. 2019 Headliners

    Completed, but one thing to note - there are lots of people aged over 45 and having a single 45+ option is introducing a bias into the results. I know I've closed down festival questionnaires in the past if I find that I'm in the bucket "30 odd until death" category. Especially when there are options that only cover 7 years. *grumpy nearly-40 year old man rant over*
  4. 2019 Headliners

    That's not old
  5. 2019 Headliners

    I think you'll do much better creating a dedicated thread for this. This forum normally gets quite a few responses, but you may struggle this year with Glasto being off. Good luck with your studies!
  6. 2018 New Music

    It's lovely isn't it? I was hoping for a big drop, but I knew it wouldn't come in the trailer. Reminds me more of Contact Note than Immunity, which is no bad thing.
  7. Plastic Bottle Ban?

    I can't disagree with that. It feels like the focus on climate change as the number one environmental threat has dominated the discourse so much that other issues like a massive island in the ocean made of plastic haven't been on people's minds. I don't know if it's a coincidence that the stunning success of renewables in the last few years has coincided with mainstream attention on environmental issues that are not solely about the carbon footprint. Either way, I'm glad it's starting to happen. Filling a massive bin full of plastic every couple of weeks can't be good.
  8. Plastic Bottle Ban?

    I'm not convinced. Sounds a bit like "In my day, we didn't have any nut allergies" Except there have always been nut allergies, people died more often. Bottled water can play a genuinely useful role.
  9. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Hello everyone, this place is starting to pick up again, what with the bits of news leaking out and the other festies getting all their lineups out. Hope you're all well
  10. Glastonbury Spelling errors

    The Parp Stage Monotail John Pee Stage
  11. Fun Memories

    It was great. The only thing funnier would be if I started wearing three hats and was one-upped by a quadrahat.
  12. Such a shame there's no Glastonbury this year

    And I had the opportunity to see most of the bands I care about on that poster at Glastonbury in 2007/2008. Probably most of them full stop to be honest.
  13. Such a shame there's no Glastonbury this year

    Yep split is the word, put me down for #teamterrible. So much grey music.
  14. Fun Memories

    The time in 2010 when someone walked past wearing three hats.
  15. Elton John

    Elton would be the greatest legend in the history of the festival, but as a headliner, I'm deeply uninterested. He could definitely play both, but I doubt I'd see him at night, even if I'd be all over the Sunday afternoon slot like a rash. Not sure why.
  16. Glastonbury evolves

    Funnily enough I recently dreamt that Michael had finally solved the transport issues at the festival. Nothing so impractical as a monorail. No, they built an underground network.
  17. Most 'overbooked' headliner

    Did they? They're not choosing the headliners to look good in forum posts 16 years later. He was a massively popular act at the time, as were Mumfords.
  18. Elton John

    Wow, fair enough. Why not?
  19. Elton John

    I know that's the official word, but it seems incredibly unlikely to me. I'm just being cynical, I've always assumed that if Elton's not lying outright, then his people never let him know. Either way, can you imagine that the festival have never approached Elton John? They must have pretty similar discussions as us about "who's left". They're not stupid. Unless of course, they know something truly awful about him that would rule him out... EDIT: I should have made it clearer that the "offered him legend slot" was pure speculation on my part.
  20. Elton John

    As a long shot, because they've only ever been offering him the legend slot so far, but he's negotiated the big one as part of his farewell tour.
  21. Glastonbury evolves

    Even though it's much smaller, for some reason, there seems to be more of a need for repeaters at W Holts.
  22. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Glad to be able to help old son.
  23. Glastonbury evolves

    A rethink on litter storage/collection. I'm thinking a big fuck off skip in W Holt's. Or some provision for an extra emptying of the bins during the day. They overflow far too often. Agreed on the all-round urinals, been saying this for a while.
  24. Glasto chat

    I usually find it unbearable, but right now when this place is fairly dead, Glasto Chat is actually the best place to go to for Glastonbury excitement Plenty of knobheads on there, but lots of excited people who love the place too.
  25. What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    I quite fancy that. Seriously considering getting an airbnb that weekend. I've never been when the festival isn't off and I can't think of a better time than the fallow weekend.
