  1. Hope you're not one of those idiots who's doesn't want to get vaccinated. I actually hope that those kind of people are not allowed on festivals.

  2. You seem to forget that for three weeks before the summit the areas were full of people from all over preparing for the summit. The 6000 police were there 2 weeks before, the media were all there three weeks before. It is 100% the G7 summit that caused the spikes. Tourism in those areas was very low in the 3 weeks before as all rooms were booked for the summit and used by the staff, the media etc I shall not add the word 'fact' at the end to prove I am right though as that is just daft. You can down vote me again like you did yesterday too if it makes you feel big and clever - which you certainly are not given you think a face mask is like a nappy.

  4. Glastonbury was always a place where people helped each other, looked out for each other, cared about each other. You quite clearly show that you care about you and you only by your posts on here. The way you end your comment above also adds weight to that. If you cannot say and do what you want, when you want, how you want you get nasty. There are hundreds of comments on this thread to show that. No doubt you will downvote me, quote me and swear again. Decent people are what Glastonbury was and should always be about. It is not a place for divisive, nasty, selfish people and personally, no people like that are not welcome there................. but it seems there will be more than ever judging by you and others here.

  7. Said this upthread but I am begrudgingly OK with masks in pubs until younger employees get vaccine'd. I hate it, it's annoying taking it off and on, but until loads more of the (overwhelmingly 18-25) staff in my local pubs/bars/etc get jabbed properly it's the absolute least I can do. It may be a cutesy bit of health theatre at this point but if it makes their shift less stressful or they feel a bit more comfortable when I'm passing them, I'm fine with it.

  12. Ok folks, as it would normally be a time to be panicking about whether to bring wellies or not , we have the fake, weather update from now until Friday morning. So may I introduce, for one year only, the fukt-ometer. This calibrated glass is an upgrade on the ram jam jar as there is no need for a ruler. Today this is being closely guarded by the titty Buddha, who comes with complimentary orm, häst and dykare. The sun is currently out and the Fukt-ometer is dry. The Well is completely dry as a dry thing in dry town on dry Friday. I will locate the sticky stick for measuring should any moisture become apparent. ha en bra dag!

  13. In the words of Glastonbury stalwart Norman Cook: "we've come a long, long way together - through the hard times and the good..." Twelve months ago, the Ridge and Furrow remained unbuilt, Pangea sat static, and the fields of Avalon remained empty - so an idea was formulated to keep the 'Glastonbury spirit' burning and the eFests tradition alive. The first Virtual Meet was set up, and really well attended (and for the most part well received). In fact - just like Mik Artistik - it has become a regular fixture! People have grown friendships and found company in some unprecedented times. It even became one of the only places to see Live From Worthy Farm a few weeks ago, thanks to some excellent streaming skills! The last 12/18 months have been pretty dire at times, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel (somewhere) and we all know that "hope shines brightest in the darkness". Let's keep shining that light and, fingers crossed, in twelve months we will all be at the biggest party on Earth. With this in mind, it seems appropriate to continue the ritual... The Annual Live eFests Meet will take place at the 'Ridge and Furlough' Wednesday 23rd June 2021 @ 7:00pm: Topic: Annual eFests Meeting - The Ridge and Furlough Time: Jun 23, 2021 07:00 PM Greenwich Mean Time Join Zoom Meeting https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87017255969?pwd=V2ZlL1dvbzZNN0lVK3BYTTlPSEo3Zz09 Meeting ID: 870 1725 5969 Passcode: EFESTS2021 Everyone is welcome - be it no posts or 10,000 - and all are encouraged to attend. Bring your pint of Brothers, grab you hat - even if you wear two or it is sparkling with LEDs - and even put your wellies on if it makes you comfortable! Spend a minute, spend an hour or even spend the evening with the people you interact with on here! See you Wednesday! Take care.

  16. This time at Glastonbury 2019 I had just finished my first shift for Oxfam on Ped gate A where I got to see a Michael, Emily and family come to open the festival and welcome the first people through the gate.. Just as my shift finished my friends were coming through the gate from the coaches so we headed off into the festival together, it was just the best morning and a brilliant start to my favourite Glastonbury yet. Love working for Oxfam - it was so much fun welcoming loads of excited festival goers into the site 😊 the atmosphere and anticipation of Wednesday morning is awesome.

  17. One of my favourite moments of the entire weekend is settling down on the Park hill on Wednesday mid-morning, tent erected, valuables in the lock up, and two cans of Scrumpy Jack in hand. Watching the site fill with people; the buzz of excitement; the sheer wonder of it all. I'm here again! I'm quite tired at that point, having been too excited to sleep much the night before, so sometimes I'll doze. If I do, then opening my eyes and seeing Glastonbury in front of me is just a fantastic feeling. After a couple of hours, I'll trot back down and see if my new neighbours are around to say hello. Then it's a lunchtime nap, a long wander around the site while studying the line up once more, and then evening activities! Next year everything will be off the scale - the relief we'll feel to be back will heighten everything to new levels.

  20. Yeah damn those antipodeans for sewing a stitch in time to save nine. I'm in Melbourne, where we are just coming out of lockdown four. The most recent lockdown has only been in place for four weeks, I was back in the pub two weeks ago, and no one died. Aside from the Murdoch media, the attitude in Victoria has been largely accepting as we went through a long, hard lockdown last year and don't want to go through that again. The problem here has been vaccine procurement. The (national) Government basically gambled on a home-made vaccine and the astrazenica, the former wasn't effective and the latter was limited to the over 50s (now the over 60s) within a few weeks of it becoming available. Despite the state governments making good headway getting out the pfizer vaccine over recent weeks, that teet has now been suckled dry and it's going to be a few months before there is enough pfizer to go around the country and get everyone jabbed. As far as I'm aware there isn't an appetite to have ongoing lockdowns as you have stated, but to stamp out any outbreaks until the population is at a level that is vacced up, much like the rest of the world. There will be a difference in perspective though, as Australia and New Zealand aren't coming out of periods of mass death and near permanent lockdowns like the rest of the world.

  24. Good morning campers on what would have been a perfect day in paradise. The sky is pure blue. The fukt-ometer is empty if you ignore the bugs scrabbling around in the base. Titty Buddha has just a hint of a sweat gently dripping down its glistening body. Sticky stick is redundant as the well is still trying to replicate the Gobi desert. We can torture ourselves with what ifs and if onlys but it is what it is. Time to enjoy the sun and be hopeful that one day we will stride across the green grass of our hallowed land and PARTY🕺🏼🙌🙌🎉💜🧡💙❤️🤩😎 ☀️

  26. To be honest, it's entirely correct (and the fellow in the twitter thread doesn't know how vaccines work. He thinks he does, but he doesn't...the immunologist knows more about it than a History PhD student...who knew eh?). They aren't a forcefield and they don't stop you from getting infected. They do however teach our immune systems to clobber the virus when it does infect us so that we don't develop disease from the infection (most of the time, they can't do this in everyone all the time). Some vaccines produce sterilising immunity that mostly stop you from getting infected in the first place, but these are few and far between (and vary from person to person anyway and even within the same person at different times). However, a rapid immune response to infection (primed by vaccination or prior infection) should reduce viral load and should make you less of a vector for onward transmission. I think you may be shocked by how many people can test positive in fully vaccinated populations. I know of a number of outbreaks in fully vaccinated cohorts where the secondary attack rates were >25%. The key thing though is that in all those outbreaks, symptoms were either non-existent or very mild. I just have this niggling feeling that because we really haven't seen how the vaccines perform in terms of preventing transmission in a completely unmitigated world, we are over-estimating how effective they are at this. Not in terms of how well they prevent disease, but in terms of preventing infection/onward transmission full stop. However, I do still think they are more than sufficient to move on. They won't prevent every case of severe disease, nor hospitalisation, nor death, but they will (and are) bringing them back towards a place we have to accept (the issue at the moment is that the "at risk" population is still reasonably large (albeit difficult to accurately quantify), so once that is not the case, then we trust the vaccines! (so I don't agree with the other part of the statement above that NPI will be required ad infinitum to keep a lid on things)).

  27. COVID anxiety is not just a thing, it's perfectly normal and natural. If your friend dies in a car accident, next time you're on the motorway, you're going to feel a bit more anxious. If a parent dies of lung cancer, you might finally give up smoking. Whenever someone near to us dies it's totally natural and normal to be hyper-conscious about that cause of death. It may not be rational, it may well be a "total failure to comprehend risk" but it's not at all weird or abnormal. In a country where 128,000 people have died from COVID in the last year or so, lots of people are going to be hyper-conscious of COVID right now. If they weren't I'd think something was wrong. I'd imagine you'll find a correlation between those who have dealt with deaths of those close to them of COVID and any anxiety. And between those who haven't lost anyone who just can't get their head around it. What does astound me though is that some of the people who have spent six months on here going on and on about the terrible impact of lockdown on mental health are now telling people suffering from anxiety about the world re-opening to "get a fucking grip".

  34. If the rise in cases in Scotland is being driven by the football last week, then it really does make a mockery of everybody else who is abiding by restrictions and rules, as well as the decision to delay reopening by four more weeks. All for it to be put in further jeopardy by people travelling to watch a game of football.

  41. There are 6 groups of 4, so 24 teams. 16 teams go through out of those. 6 first placed teams, 6 second placed teams, and the 4 best third placed teams. The 4 best third placed teams all play first placed teams in the next round. That leaves 2 first placed teams (who play 2 second placed teams); which in turn leaves 4 second placed teams (who play each other). It’s a truly terrible format.

  42. So...the UK now has more cases than all of the EU Countries *combined*. And the EU vax pace is faster than the UK. Everything in the EU is reopening at pace, e.g. nightclubs are open in Spain now and international travel is easy. Shame on those dickheads on here with the endless 'we're smashing the EU, you love to see it' patter a couple of months back.

  45. Out of upvotes. I witnessed somebody getting an alternative 'wash' in the green fields one year. It wasn't a gong though. I can't actually recall what it was but think that it may have been a bazooka. Why anybody would want to get bathed in the sound of a a short-range tubular rocket launcher going off, I'll never know! Seriously though, I think it may have been far longer in length than a bazooka of the musical instrument variety. Can't recall the name of the aboriginal horn type things (and currently refuse to look the name up), but pretty sure (now) that it was one of them. It was lovely from where I was, so must have been orgasmic for the person experiencing the 'wash' at close range. If I recall correctly, I considered it too much money to pay at that time in my life. I'd be at it like a shot now.
