  1. In an ideal world we’d wake up Monday morning of the festival, and be told to party hard for 14 more days, as we can not leave, each supplied with a dust masks so we can pretend we are in the Prodigy, all inclusive alcohol and all inclusive meals

  3. Personally I’d rather a format which didn’t include having to listen to Jo Whiley in order to know who’s playing. That said, I’ve nothing against a slow reveal. Most years I take henry junior to an airshow in Gloucestershire, which just happens to be the biggest and best in the world. And just like Glastonbury, the lineup is a matter of great debate. The enthusiasts want rarities from far and wide, whilst Joe Public wants the Red Arrows etc. And from about February, until July, one or two (or more) of the attractions will be announced each Thursday, and slowly - over the months leading to the show, the lineup takes shape.

  15. For me mumford are the dregs of headliners. Just a terrible band. Don’t mind RB, but they’re nowhere near headliner material. Only get a limited sound with a bass and drum kit. Gets a bit tedious for a 90 min set

  16. I actually gave my own Glastonbury ticket to a stranger once - for free! ie I never even charged him face value. I just didn't want the ticket to go to waste, as I could no longer attend.

  17. Repeating acts is a thing were Werchter is good at. I expect them to finalise this weekend their line up. Next week it is Pukkelpop. And they are not going to announce next week. This week or the week of 9 March it is.

  20. Did Swine Flu promote this much hysteria in 2009 when over 500,000 people (UK) were infected? I know the fatality rate is about 4x higher for Covid-19 but I swear the impact on the global economy, media ect. wasn't this severe...Has the development of social media/comms played a part? Or maybe because I was too young to take notice..... The Olympics Committee have given themselves 3 months to make a decision. IMO a statement won't be made by Glastonbury until balance payment week. I don't really see the need for any correspondence in the meantime given how quickly outbreaks appear to be developing (case of Italy). Things change quickly. China appears to have contained their situation and I'm hoping Italy will do the same. To ease my mind I try to look at the numbers in proportion. If the UK and Italy get 10,000 cases each...it's still only 0.015% of our populations. Given the awareness of the virus (something that China & arguably SK, HK & Singapore didn't have) we should be able to prevent it reaching this kind of number. Again, viruses don't like heat, let's hope for a Summer like 18. I'm positive - Glasto 2020 will happen as planned.

  21. As someone without tickets i wouldn't want the festival to be cancelled .... people have a lot of emotional tie ins once they get the tickets and if you dont you have to accept it in its own way .... others not having a festival would make me sad and create a much not needed fallow year ... so id love it to go ahead anyway as not having it wouldn't benefit anyone .... In terms of what would happen should it be cancelled I cant see it not being a full october sale as is normally the case .. fingers crossed for all the ticket holders

  27. In my opinion, the tent line-up is one of the strongest yet. Certainly when you look at 'quality' or compare it to 2018 where you had the likes of Marshmello, James Bay, Parov Steler or Khalid on very high positions in the Barn. This year, tents are maybe a bit more alternative, but almost all good quality acts. Also, some more adventurous bookings like GoGo Penguin or Joep Beving, which I like very much! The fact that the Slope has a more diverse line-up this year is a good thing, isn't it? Strongest slope ever in my opninion. The only downside for me on this line-up is the Main Stage line-up during the day and the fact that there are a lot of repetitions from 2017, 18 or 19, even with smaller bands (Miles Kane, Gang of Youths, Last Internationale, Emma Bale ...). They also lack some more popular names for a younger crowd on the line-up (missing out on all three of FKA Twigs, Tyler and Stormzy for example is strange). Too much dadrock on too high positions I think compared to acts which appeal to a younger crowd.

  28. Imagine having so many great songs to choose from you can casually just chuck in Penny Lane in to a setlist. Penny Lane FFS!

  29. My guess (which lacks any medical or entimological knowledge)- winter will end, temperatures will rise, and the virus will slowly go away, just like any other flu. We're seeing cancellations now, in April/May it will be different

  33. Oh gods, @stuie - don't listen to me! I know bugger all! Saw their 3D headline show at Latitude in 2013. Weather was great. Visuals were really good. The 3D effects really did work (the visuals became, understandably, very flat without the 3D specs on) and it was really fun looking around the field at tens of thousands of people all wearing special glasses! Musically it was entertaining, the sound being one of the best I've ever heard at a festival - especially a main stage. Kraftwerk's engineers spent hours fiddling and testing on the Thursday, and their efforts delivered audio worthy of the music. The only thing, I guess, was that after an hour I'd had enough. I am, as has been established to death in these parts, a big techno fan. Whilst in no way underestimating the debt that I personally owe to Kraftwerk, for the music I love today, their tempo, live, just dragged a bit. They put Tour de France in the second half of the set, which was a treat for me, as it's one of my favourite of their melodies, it having been released when I was getting into electronic music (oh my giddy aunt, that was 1983. Fuck, I'm old...), and was just a revelation to me. It was like listening to the future - which, in many ways, it was. But, my attention definitely started to drift towards the last third of the set. Maybe that's just me - I do have a short attention span (which is why I generally prefer festival sets to gigs - an hour is nigh-on perfect for me). I have no doubt that they'll be brilliant in April and you'll have a fantastic time, and I'm hugely glad that I got to see them, again given their legacy to my dance music life. But, I wouldn't be devastated if I didn't get to see them again. Ben

  34. I posted a question a couple of months back about taking a toddler/child to Primavera. Johndenis, Etaish, Quadrophobia, xxialac, Rico-Pliskin many thanks for all of your replies and kind words, which came at a good time for me personally as I digested the imminent changes! I did see someone with a toddler strapped to them last year but I think on reflection it’s a ridiculous idea, especially when I think about the bits of the festival I’ve loved and trying to stubbornly recreate these, like carrying a pram down to the Adidas stage etc. Reluctantly time to let go! Does anyone have any information about when/if the safe marketplace is likely to start? I’ve emailed Primavera and redtkts but haven’t heard anything from them. We’ve already taken a hit on the hotel and flights we had booked so really keen to sell the tickets. I’m looking forward to enjoying the festival vicariously through reading everyone’s experiences!

  39. Well Kens just confirmed we're getting a sub/cohead for Friday and Mad Cool are teasing their Friday headliners which is a week later, one ending with S (The Strokes) and another beginning with R. I imagine whoever that R is will be announced tomorrow alongside Mad Cool, RHCP to close the night or Royal Blood to sub. As a Brit I find Royal Blood playing above Liam Gallagher hilarious but I'm not complaining.

  43. A point for consideration - Down the Rabbit Hole, a festival which takes place in Netheralands a week before Mad cool, will anaounce it's last headliner on Wednesday morning. It's an alternative indie festival which it's headliners are: Beck, Tylor the Creator. Werchter (Which happens the same weekend as DTRH) also should announces it's second headliner for Friday with the Strokes, on this Friday. I'm really afarid it's a bad sign that Tame Impala will be one of the 2 remaining headliners. Fingers crossed i'm mistaken and the headliners will be The Strokes + Liam...

  44. I'm with you on hating tents! We stayed at the Premier Inn last yr and it was perfect for us. It's a good 35-40 minutes walk to the site, uphill most of the way. Half of the walk is paved the rest is on the tracks used for the festival traffic or cutting through the car park fields. Lighting was pretty much non-existent on the tracks so the walk back to the main road was fun! The hotel also had a Mcdonalds alongside it and a garage that opened late.
