Me too. Keep glancing at the Glasto Cam widget, looking at those sunny fields (growing mostly wheat it seems across the Western parts of the site), noting the distinct lack of a fence going up and the odd flag, truck, marquee appearing. Particularly gutting what with the hot weather at the moment. Will be gutted still further if it stays hot and dry over the festival weekend too. <sigh>

Went a few times about 10 years ago and found myself in a frame of mind where I couldn't be bothered anymore. I couldn't get excited about it and so last time I went was 2005 I think. Had an urge to go in 2010 and got myself massively excited about it but my dog died a few hours before I was due to leave so I didn't go. Didn't have money to go last year but regretted not going. Proper looking forward to going next year. Nothing is going to stop me, except perhaps the end of the world. But i don't believe in that. So next year will be the year after bare years off. Can't wait.

What are bare years?

Urban Dictionary defines it as :

Bare:

1. Lots of (many, a large amount of)
2. Very (extremely)

1. We've toked bare joints today
2. We're bare chunged

Looks like I looked up the wrong dictionary. Thanks for the explanation LondonTom.

I think the dates would have been Weds 20th-Mon 25th had it been on.

Even worse would have been dealing with the England football team (probably) playing their Quarter Final match on either the Saturday or Sunday night!

Thank god I had Faithless to get me out of my bad mood after our 4-1 trashing by Germany in 2010!

Just spent 10 mins looking for the 'glasto on my mind' thread, im sure it did exist. But couldn't find it.

My music just randomly played Jimmy Cliffs 'I can see clearly now' It took me back, I was right there, in shangri-la,saturday? night around 10pm??, some open dj playing, open air, not many people about, but it had just stopped raining in the last 10 minutes after raining non stop for 24 hrs (not sure the year but it was recent) i was able to pull my hood down and dance like a loon for the first time! and soo many people seemed to come from no were to just dance to this one song, started off with me and 3 other people ended with 10x the amount. i hear the DJs version in my head more than jimmy's - it was more "I can see clearly now the rain has gone ..BOOM BOOM BOOM..:..fucking brilliant.

Went to see Holy Fuck in the JP stage instead of watching the football. Best decision I made all weekend.

And I had already seen them at the Queens Head the night before.

Now that's commitment to a band!

hehe, was thinking about it this morning, normally, this time of year, I'm visiting arcane weather websites, becoming a temporary expert on 'low pressure ridges over Europe' and generally spending 90% of the day fretting about the possibility of rain.

and the continuous slagging off of the MetCheck site, which is fully justified. Especially when it predicts winds of 283mph!!! Happy days

came round the corner in my high street yesterday in light rain and caught a whiff of Bacon sandwich coming out of the door of my Butchers, and had a flashback...
