    Me too, the sound was terrible. Had to leave,
  2. Weather 2017

    It has been 17 degrees in Edinburgh this afternoon and everyone is in shorts and t-shirts. To be fair it is full sunshine.
  3. Cabaret Field bar, Wednesday 6pm: eFestivals meet

    Hope to see you all there, last year we were stuck in traffic and didn't make it on site till after 11pm. This year we are on the coach so should be there. Saying that last year the Edinburgh coach took about 24 hours, not going to happen this year though.
  4. So... Who else is on their last day of work clock watching

    3 hours to go, I have been watching the clock for the last week.
  5. Cabaret Field bar, Wednesday 6pm: eFestivals meet

    Missed last year as we were sitting in the traffic jam in Street at the time. This year we'll be there.

    Talking Heads were probably the first I ever saw at a Festival,. ok it was actually a one off gig at Ingliston (by Edinburgh airport), but there was camping. line up included Steel Pulse and the Undertones. headliner was Van Morrison. Year was 1978. A lifetime ago.

  12. Glastonbury 2016 - In Retrospect

    We had a horrendous trip in. At one point i was sitting in the mud in the orange (?) carpark with gate A in sight crying. Our trolley was axle deep in mud -weighed down with the drinks we were bringing in for my neice and her friends - when a guy with a rucksack sauntered by quipping "2 legs better than 4 wheels". Gate A nearly finished us off but a lovely fit lad hauled us out the mud in the turnstile bit after the wristband tent. We then just pitched up in the nearest semi dry patch we found. We set up in the dark (just before midnight) in record time and without a squabble so i am really proud of that. On Sunday night i considered leaving early as i had heard horror stories about getting out the car parks but in the event waited until Monday and had no problems whatsoever. Amazing the difference a couple of hours sunshine makes drying the ground out. I asked my other half this evening how devastated (on a scale of 1-10) he would be if we didn't get tickets and his response was a 9 - so we are going for coach tickets tomorrow and travelling light. 2 legs better than 4 wheels! Fingers crossed and good luck on the F5 button.

    Just decided this evening to have a shot at coach tickets for the first time. Usually we drive and take everything including kitchen sink, had been considering worthy view this year if we got tickets But mate of ours has done the coach the last two years and so this year we thought lets give it a go. I asked my better half on a scale of 1-10 how devastated he would be if we didn't get a ticket - his response was a 9 - surprised me as i thought last year nearly broke him (and me). Never too old for an adventure and if we get lucky i will be the oldest person on the coach, i have no doubt about that. Am i insane - should i grow up? Of course i am and no i won't grow up.

    Dreich = unremitting. If you believe the Norse derivation. I prefer the just grey drizzle definition
