    Always good to see that the same people who remain silent to the rampant normalised Islamophobia, sexism, homo/bi/queerphobia, transphobia and all the other innumerable forms of casual discrimination which exist unashamedly in our society's mainstream discourse can find the time to pipe up and tell us about how calling people Gammons is just the same as racism, actually.

    I'm taking over the Park for the festival. I've sought to theme each day in some way - with jazz, alt-folk and electronica themes running through, with a bit of experimentation that will hopefully suit the stage. Sons of Kemet will be doing skronky rabble of a set up at The Crow's Nest after hours on the Friday if you miss them at tea time, and Kelly Lee Owens will be up there to close the stage on Sunday night. Gilles Peterson will be DJing in the Rabbit Hole late Saturday if you need a bit more than the folk on the big stage. Now, pass me the rum.

This troubles me.

    From memory as I won't watch it again (as it enrages me) they got tickets from EE, they turn up on the friday in the Tipi village/Yurt type thing. Spend a bit of time moaning about the mud and weather, then go see some bands. The absolute prick then spends his saturday sat in the EE recharge tent watching the football on his phone (she sits with him) and then they go see Adele and then go home saying he has ticked Glastonbury off his bucket list. He then mentions he has football in 7 hours or something, was just a total waste of 2 tickets. Self entitled pricks.

    I think everyone feels the most nostalgia for the music they listened to as a teen/early 20's. There just are a section of people who never get past it and once they reach a certain age have this music isn't as good as it was in my day attitude. It's fine to go to the nostalgia gigs if you are also going to and listening to new stuff and don't have a closed mind to it. It's when people only listen to 1 genre and are deaf to all others and think their genre is superior that the problems exist. As someone who grew up loving indie/rock music they are some of the genres that seem to attract the worst of these types. Sadly there are lot of people who think white men with guitars are just the epitome of great music and nothing else rivals it. That is the attitude that needs eliminating!

    I couldn't give a flying flange where people rate on some thing I've never heard of. If Bjork, Kate or PJ were performing you can bet your bottom dollar I'm front row centre for any of them over JJ. I was actually looking forward to seeing JJ but I'm worried I'm gonna have someone shouting stats at me and that I should be worshipping.

    At least he got shot quite late on in the festival. If I got shot on the Wednesday afternoon, I'd be fucking livid.

    now completed. Interesting - it's always been my feeling that although Glastonbury bangs on about looking after the environment (and I'm a Worthy Warrior), attending both, it's clear that Reading quietly re-cycles whereas G has recently put in schemes because its future was at stake. Both are utter disasters for the environment. Glastonbury is much better at marketing itself as green but comparing the post-headliner mess, Reading wins on being greener. Oh, and thanks for just having 40+, I feel young again!!

    Tickets, car parking and water bottles paid for for me and the other half. Strange feeling as we have only ever got tickets in the resale until this year. Best of luck to all those trying in the resale, I've been successful in resale since 2014 so there is definately hope.

    Also, the older you are, the more you've heard, and the more difficult it is for something not to sound like a copy of what you loved when you were young. ? That shouldn't stop you trying, however. I'm a little older than 40 (ahem), but I'm looking forward to Stormzy, Snapped Ankles, Christine and the Queens, Sam Fender, Lloyle Carner, Idles, Billie Eilish, and Lizzo, among others.

    Can't manage to get pics attached to a DM, so it's grated tofu recipes for everyone! I play around with the volumes, find a consistency and flavour balance you like. Lime zest and desiccated coconut are good additions

    If she brought her dad out for a rendition of Achy Breaky Heart it’d be the greatest Glastonbury moment of all time.
