he made a comment that was along the lines of the promoters not matching the headliner to the audience, and was laughing about how the lips had been unsuitable for that gig.

Crowd for the lips weren't too big but weren't too bad of a show, a lot of youngsters just waiting for TDCC.

Then again youngsters spent most their time in the dance tents anyway, was always rammed in there!

perhaps that was the part he was referencing. he definitely seemed to think it wasn't a lips audience he'd played to.

Mind you, I'm wondering what he thought about Bristol. I'm not sure if it was sold out or not (if not, must have nearly been), but I also suspect the crowd might have been a more enthusiastic crowd on another occasion ... cos Bristol is a bit of a ghost town during Boomtown.

My predictions for 2018 

50 cent- I know random headliner, but new album next yr and boardmasters seem to have a couple random headliners. 

Chase & Status- Regular headliners 

Libertines- New album coming out and balance the books out with a guitar band.

This is a good shout tho tbh Rudimental could do it now as well (as Chase & Status have kinda jumped of a cliff in terms of popularity)

Liam Gallagher. It would Pretty much guarantee a sold out weekend

No chance, way too big. 

It'll be The Libertines

Second announcement has dropped with the other 2 headliners and a lot of other acts. Very disappointed with it after a promising first announcement! Catfish and the Bottlemen are very uninspiring headliners would have felt like they would be better subbing, and George Ezra is just very safe and not really my cup of tea. I feel this years isn’t looking as strong as last years, bit of a shame really as I really liked the festival last year and wanted to return but don’t think I will based on this

Unlike most on here I quite enjoy catfish, just hope they actually do something a bit different / more interesting with their 3rd album. Doesn't change the fact that they are a weak headliner and this is a very disappointing lineup though.

Hi!

Thinking about attending this year, just wondered what the crowd was like age wise? And what the campsites are like. We are early/mid 30s - will we cope camping?! :P

We are usually dairy ground campers at Glasto 

Thanks!

Quite young. I would recommend paying a bit extra for VIP tickets. The kids don't really want to be paying extra, so they will be in the slum fields. Loads of space in VIP, and a nice bar.

Fab thanks - had been looking at VIP and wondering if it was worth it.
