    Ok, I'm bound to say that it's a brilliant present ... well, my other half is the artist ...but actually it is a pretty cool Christmas present. Lolly (yes, that's actually what she's called) is a multi talented artist. Portrait painter, signwriter, playwright, jeweller,blogger etc, etc. Oh, obviously she's a chainsaw carver as well The spring before last she made some Pyramid Stage necklaces to sell at our spot at Glastonbury. She failed completely. Spangled or asleep for the duration. The necklaces literally didn't see the light of day. So, they are for sale here....and you genuinely won't see them anywhere else. They are made from recycled copper, each one etched with a unique design. There are three of them, no two alike. The top of the stage contains Swarovski auoroa borealis crystal. It's threaded on a faux leather or hemp thong and the pendant is approx 7cm (not small) along each side of the triangle. Comes in a posh box with an image of the stage in the background. Cost is £35 each inc p&p (was going to be more at the festival.....) If anyone's interested, PM me.

    Yep, many more details here: Genosys is out in the open air, and has suffered in the past from being reduced to a mere 88 dBA, which is not conducive to shaking it about. “It’s the second year RG Jones have provided the solution here”. Explains Simon Honywill “Historically they’ve had huge problems with the leakage because the licensing regulations state that off-site no one single noise source can be heard above the overall festival hubbub, and they had real problems with this one. It was a ground stacked left and right system and they were running at 80 to 83, 85 if they were lucky. We came up with this solution - 10 a side Martin MLA Compact and 12 DSX subs, and two little arrays of MLA Mini as in-fills. It’s been a really great result and they’re very happy with it. You can do so much more with [MLA] it leaves everything else in the dark, it makes a conventional line array look and sound prehistoric because you can’t control the wavefront in anything like the same way and get the same degree of coverage – and get it to stop hitting where you don’t want it hit. But it does all that and sounds incredible, really incredible. It sounds amazing – that MLA system, I’d have that at home if I could! I absolutely love it. I knew exactly what MLA Compact could do and never doubted we would get a great result for the lovely people of the weird and wonderful world of Block 9" https://rgjones.co.uk/docs/latest-news/EVpEZZukZpYwvEesIS.shtml

    My issue with those two subbing is more the fact their draw is based on playing 50% or more Oasis songs. Why have the Gallaghers doing their own karaoke turns when the festival could be booking the likes of Christine and the Queens etc. How is the festival planning to bump up acts to headline status if they're giving 2 of the top 6 Pyramid slots to members of the same band who had their heyday in the 90s? 2/3 of the headliners look nailed on to be heritage acts, do we really need 2/3 subs to be too, let alone the fact they're from the same band?

    With cocaine I think this is certainly a factor to some degree. I know countless virtuous veggies, who buy organic, wear ethically sourced clothes etc but love a good dabble in the old cocaine. The links between the international cocaine trade and prostitution, human trafficking, escalating levels of gang violence in Latin America etc etc are grim. I asked one of them why she wouldn't buy clothes sourced in Bangladesh yet was perfectly happy snorting cocaine. She said it was because there wasn't an available alternative to coke.... Now, as @mashedonmud has pointed out, obviously the problem here is that drug aren't legal, and as a result the war on drugs fucks the people at the bottom the hardest. But, personally, I would find it difficult to reconcile continuing to take the drug (if I was that way inclined) whilst being aware of those links....More so than other drugs, which tbf is probably just as illogical as my friend's stance on coke, but I do feel that with MDMA/pills/speed/things unwittingly being spice, the real risk is to the user and while this still means that absolutely we need things like The Loop etc until the fucking Government get the shit together, I guess it has less hideously unethical implications if one keeps taking them until that happens

    Why, they are are as big as any of those bands and we all saw last time that people on here underrated how big Liam still was when he had one of the biggest crowds going at the Other, that stage was too small so subbing on the Pyramid made sense (he had a bigger crowd than The National for sure). Noel has as much as an attraction. I get it looks a bit awkward with two brothers from the same band subbing separate days but ultimately both acts are bigger that the likes of the National and the XX so how is it embarrassing?

    I hope it's true and they can propel some great female acts to the top of the lineup like Jane's Addiction, Good Charlotte and Alice in Chains.

    Is that at the Marble Factory? If so, that’s actually Motion’s 2nd room, there’ll be an event on that night afterwards I imagine although I’m not sure what! If you weren’t fancying that then Stokes Croft is probably my favourite night life area of Bristol. Some really great bars there playing house/disco/tech. Particularly The Love Inn, No 51s and The Crofters Rights. Marble Factory is a little out the way of the centre but it’s only 5/10 minutes in a taxi. Either way, you’ll definitely have no problem finding somewhere to go

    So the Cure is playing, who is in the running for other spots now? Off the top of my head, would love to see any of the following added - Spiritualized, Kikagaku Moyo, Low, Chemical Brothers, Young Fathers, Tame Impala, DCFC, Our Girl, IDLES, Fucked Up, Kurt Vile, Bill Ryder-Jones, Courtney Barnett I know they are all probably long shots - but one can dream

    If it's going to be a day as expensive as Noel's there's only really Florence from female fronted bands I can see being big enough, maybe The XX too but they don't have any dates for next year. Wolf Alice don't seem big enough to me to go alongside Foals and Noel Gallagher especially on arguably the best of the three days (bank holiday Sunday), would like to see them there subbing though. I think Florence might be a decent shout, other than that Bring Me The Horizon, Royal Blood, Biffy and Phonics seem like contenders to me (IF Royal Blood end up announcing anything, that is).

    The loop do fantastic work, yes drugs are illegal but that does not stop people. We should be investing in more harm reduction and education in this country. Would be great to see them at Glastonbury as this would create even more awareness, the government needs to open up to have a more open and honest debate about drugs policy rather than following the same old party line. As at the moment our drugs policies are causing more harm to the people they are set out to protect and giving huge sums of money to really nasty people. If anyone is interested, they should check out the Stop and Search podcast always an insightful look at the war on drugs and drugs policy in the UK. Always a great range of guests and topics. I see chasing the scream has been recommended previously, again anyone wanting to know about the history of the war on drugs can't recommend this book enough. In addition people should also check out Good Cop Bad War by Neil Woods about his time as an undercover police officer and how it changed his perception on the drug war.

    Radio primavera sound has a live streaming channel at youtube. They have now a chat with other organizers. So, they will have a live streaming video at Wednesday too. Now it makes more sense.

    It's saying a woman's sexuality is more important than what she's successful for. It's a demeaning and sexist comment. It's not sexual harassment (and I'm not sure who thinks it is?)

    I don't have enough Glastonburys under my belt but that Killers set was one of the best shows I ever seen. I'm not a fan of them though that set made me much more positive about them but I acknowledge more than 50% percent of the magic belong to the awesome atmosphere in the JP. I didn't watch Elbow set at the Park, but seeing a fantastic set by them in another festival back in 2015 made me a fan, so I can believe that in the right atmosphere their set can be a great one. Also, I think that secret sets have a greater appeal than a normal one, even if those sets weren't so secret to those of us on efest (thanks again to all those who were involved!). Especially when it's about seeing a band play at a stage much smaller than their actual size and/or much earlier than they should.

    I remember seeing Portishead a few times in the 90s. Was easy to get tickets and they played midsize venues. They were hugely critically acclaimed but they weren't as equally popular by any means. And more recently when they played Glastonbury a few years ago, they weren't on the Pyramid stage. Do you really think Portishead would have sold out 7 nights at the Hammersmith Apollo?

    Yeah, I would say the Lions Den if they played.

    It's stupid money mate but I am prepared to work Xmas and Boxing day to put it towards. I am far from rich but there is no way I am not going next year. When I am lay on my death bed, I will not think about the 2 grand I saved by sitting at home while my friends went to Glastonbury. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

    This is what I love about Sziget, there's always something on even if the acts that day don't do if for you. Realistically in a 7 day festival there will always be a couple of days where there isn't a blockbuster headliner you want to see, but you can go to the circus, go and watch some caberet, go to that weird aerialist street theatre thing near the entrance. You're never going to be bored. Mad Cool is all about the music so it lives or dies on the line up in my opinion.

    Yeah assuming she'll keep the new album songs to a minimum and do a straight run through of hits there'll barely be a song played that doesn't have place popping off. Trim her current setlist of the fat and it's pretty impressive just how many bangers she has. The weather would have to be pretty shite/she'd have to fuck the setlist up something special to stop this from being one of the guaranteed best sets of the weekend, or at least most smile inducing.
