  1. Couldn't disagree with this more. FR aren't putting on a free village fete in the local park here, this is a multi-million dollar festival that people have paid £100s to attend. Expecting some degree of communication is not being "entitled". Nobody is blaming FR for all high number of drop out this year, it can't be helped, but bands being dropped from the schedule without official comment is just poor form. For all you know someone is going specifically for one of the bands that have or may not have dropped out (I went to Leeds in 2018 solely for TFB, for example). Those people deserve to know what the situation is. It's not in any way unreasonable to expect FR to officially confirm when an act drops out. Removing them on the sly from the app and not posting any proper news is super scummy.

  2. We were ultimately able to come to Worthy Pastures last weekend from France. We had an amazing time with the family, and we really enjoyed every second of our stay. Very happy to have been able to do what we never take the time to do during the festival: explore the surroundings (Pilton and Glastonbury). The atmosphere was so nice and soothing. I spare you the pictures of my ecstatic children on the Cadmus play ship, the dragon, and in the Pink Castle.

  8. It's the fact that he's suddenly coming out with this child exploitation/pornography/sex worker bullshit now after years of living a life celebrating the fact that he was the Nirvana baby. Had this always been his stance then I could understand a little more, but he's been reaping the benefits for years and now the money seems to have dried up he's taking another tact. Shameless cash in attempt.

  10. Definitely felt it for Stevie. Somehow ended up right down the front through sheer luck and it felt like the entire festival was in that field pouring their goodwill and love out towards him.

  11. Agreed but at the end of the day I’m just taking it as it comes - almost to be expected with restrictions and Covid. Surprised Posty is still scheduled honestly Last year we got nothing at all so this year i don’t mind really who’s there - could it have been better? Sure. But, let’s make it what it is and still have a freakin’ amazing weekend because the festival is back at a time where we wasn’t sure whether it’d go ahead. So let’s just have a damn good time!

  12. So, somehow Fiona and the team pulled off the impossible with a few weeks to go and pulled out a blinder. Considering everything, it may go down as the best. According to the programme TBA seemed to be the hardest working group of the weekend, but it showed how much work the organisers were still doing in the short lead up to the event. Luckily we’d won Settlers tickets a couple of years ago and finally got to use them. How great was it to be back - we’d missed it so much, as evidently had everyone, including the performers, stewards and crew?! As ever, I loved the random encounters with strangers and overheard snippets of conversations as people wander past. All were unanimously positive (toilet conversations excepted) and so appreciative. We arrived on the Monday, planning to spend the night back home on Wednesday to regroup, and take advantage of the facilities. This proved to be impossible in the end, so we had a full week of festival fun. It also meant my brother could come for the first time who was unsurprisingly blown away and is planning to come back with his whole family next time. Amazingly, despite lasting until the very end of each day and nearly drinking Brecon Brewery dry, I felt surprisingly ok on the next Monday (albeit very tired) I hit the Settlers bar in the afternoon and worked my way through the three offerings from Brecon Brewery. Growlers’ (Pale and IPA) were lovely as ever but highlight was the new Last Mango. Can we get this added to the selections in the main bar/s please? I basked in the luxury of not having to work and spent most of the days chilling, drinking and reading. Food choices were limited but very good - pizzas were lovely, Indian Street Food fab and the bacon rolls and lamb samosas etc from the shop, sublime Music selection was great, curated by Libertino Records. Highlights include Graft Union, Jim Ghedi and Toby Hay, Amelyi, Eve Goodman, Nfamady Kouyate, Bandicoot and Taf Rapids. Most fun was the drag act by Ade HD who had the crowd wrapped around her finger at 1am and included a mass pint downing from everyone. She also did storytelling for kids in the daytime which was brilliant. If you’re a teacher, book her immediately! Nfamady Kouyate played at least 4 times over the week as far as I can tell, so must have been exhausted by the end. Comedy was fun, as was the quiz. Tried the Stargazing which was fascinating but missed out on Silent Disco - looked like the crowd were having a blast though. The main event kicked off to lovely sunshine on Thursday. The weather was truly amazing, considering the forecasts. Apart from an overnight deluge we only had a couple of hours of rain on Saturday which led to some serendipitous discoveries we wouldn’t have made otherwise, so all good. I recall Thursday music starting teatime-ish previously, so it was nice to have an afternoon programme as well this year. That said, we missed Wet Leg and Shovel Collective, but did catch a bonkers set from Lynks, dressed in a sequin onesey with horns, who were great. FO opened the sides up (due to Covid I’d imagine) which I preferred but did cause sound bleed issues occasionally listening to quieter stuff in WG. Tried a weird non-alcoholic cocktail (Sentia) that promised to mimic the effects of real booze via GABA - the jury is still out TBH. The evening was spent wandering (Horseman did a solid reggae set in CW), so didn’t catch much in the the evening either, but still had a fab time. Friday kicked off with the customary Bloody Mary and Kedgeree and we settled in the Walled Garden for Fenne Lily, Home Counties and Katy J Pearson. Fenne lacked a little stage presence but was still enjoyable and the other two were great. Headed back to pick up wine, then more WG - Vanishing Twin & GreenTea Peng (both fab). My wife was at front of GTP but rejoined us as at the back as she was getting too high from the amount of weed being consumed. Then over to FO for Shame who were magnificent (with an orchestra!), Caribou, Nfamady, Charlotte Church and Ross from Friends. I’d seen RfF at Farmfest a few weeks ago but this set was even better. Looking down into the Mountain Stage for Caribou it looked like the biggest audience I’d ever seen there. Was very emotional to see so many people back together once more. Ended up at CW until 4 then back to van. Great DJing as ever from DoS and a perfect way to see out the night. Top treat: Goat Curry from Caribbean Shack plus Ginga Ninja’s from CWs Bleary eyed, we headed out on Saturday into a deluge, Unfortunately, Gwenifer Raymond (who was a must see) lost out and we took our BMs into CWs and caught a highlight of the weekend, Ayanna Witter-Johnson on cello who was sublime. Wolfed down one of the American Hamburgers from nearby, which was amazing (even more so as I’d mistakingly ordered the double!) and then Sound of the Sirens followed who were fun. Finally the rain had stopped so we left to see Richard Dawson in the sunshine on the Mountain Stage who was astonishing as ever. Over to FO for BC Camplight, then This is the Kit, Gruff Rhys and Mogwai on MS. It was nice to see Sweet Baboo playing at GM again (with Gruff) but wished he did a solo set as well. I believe he played with a few other groups according to GM Radio, but am unsure who they were? Kit and Gruff were great, but Mogwai left us cold, so over to Walled Garden for Hen Ogledd (another highlight). In between, at some point, we caught Pictish Trail who are firm favourite and were brill. Watched DJ Rap tear the roof off FO, and finished up at CW for DJs until 4. Top treat: Jerk Chicken from Caribbean Shack Sadly, Sunday came too quickly but we took our BM and bacon roll from the Smokery and camped at Mountain Stage. Musically the curation here (and the WG) was perfect for the end of the festival vibe (in glorious sunshine as well). Billie Martin was amazing, as was Matt Maltese. I’d bumped into his Canadian parents just before, who were lovely and so proud. Saw the end of Broadside Hacks (phenomenal), a bit of Phoebe Green, and then Erland Cooper who was stunning. Staves have gone all Fleetwood but still some of the best harmonies out there, Thundercat was, well Thundercat, but Fontaines blew the roof off. Last live act of the festival was Will and the People who were exceptional and blew the crowd away. We finished off with a bit of Northern Soul in WG, some more DJs from CWs and the last film (BlackBear) which was suitabley nuts. Top treat: Rum BBQ Chicken from Caribbean Shack (sense a theme here….?) plus Usain Bolts from CWs. Top 5 (cheating coz no.1 is actually 2 but they were both amazing) Hen Ogledd / Richard Dawson - astonishes me every time Shame - mesmerising, loved the orchestra addition too Ayanna Witter-Johnson - never heard of her, but amazing stage presence and musicality Fontaines - ferocious end to the night Will and the People - most fun with your clothes on (that said the took off most of theirs) Just missed out Erland Cooper - haunting and spellbinding GreenTea Peng - woozy, dreamy beats, captivated the crowd Home Counties - witty, driving motorik post punk Katy J Pearson - folky, electronic beats, entrancing Vanishing Twin - dreamy, electronic beats, entrancing Pictish Trail - only artist to play every GM, always excellent Billie Martin - lovely way to start the last day Broadside Hacks - great folk collective DJ Rap - old skool beats, blew the sides off the tent BC Camplight - dreamy, sunshiney beats, entrancing This is the Kit - played with Rozi, always beautiful Gruff Rhys - lovely to see Sweet Baboo again, Gruff smashed it Gutted to have missed: H Hawkline Surfing Magazines Stephen Fretwell Los Bitchos Gwenifer Raymond Peaness Catrin Finch Melin Melyn Prima Queen Lump Black Midi Jose Gonzalez Golden Dregs Run Come Down Self Esteem Dreamwife Gwenno Caroline BloodWizard Kokoroko Peggy Sue

  14. That’s a really good description of how it was. One of my mates was at the big G for the first time and waiting for them to come on he nearly vibrates off his axis, repeating over and over “this is one of the biggest gigs ever isn’t it? Like the whole world is watching? And we’re here, stood here, this is mental. This is just massive” etc etc Then they absolutely nailed it. I love watching it back because I think you can visibly see them buzzing off it more and more as it goes along. Normally they have the richest punters down the front and they seemed to love the crowd reaction they got at Worthy. Including Charlie who was grinning ear to ear at the end (and on occasion during).

  15. This is probably going to sound like a really weird request, but wondered if anyone knows if there's any kind of AA/NA presence at EOTR as I know there is at some other fests? Last few years I've been a (sometimes barely) functioning alcoholic, festivals have always been one of the few times I could get pretty wasted for several days at a time and daytime drink without anyone judging me 😁 Won't bore you with the details, but now I'm a recovering alcoholic attending AA meetings and have been sober for 7 months. EOTR is going to be my first ever sober festival 🥳I'm not too worried about it (OK, slight lie), and I've got the best mates in the world who I'm coming with that all know the score so I've a bit of support there, but I don't want to be a downer for my mates either so having somewhere I can go for a nice cup of tea (living the dream etc) and get away from any boozey temptation for a bit would be welcome. Failing that, on the off chance that someone else in recovery reads this and is going then feel free to DM.

Slow day, I'm getting a bit desperate for set times... 😬 In the mean time, I've finished listening to and rating the whole lineup - based on their three songs with the most listeners on last.fm in the last year, which is a formula I've been using for a long time for no particular reason.

  19. He is not He thinks when long covid is referring to people that have the most severe symptoms when in reality its a catch all term for any covid symptom that persists after infection - 12 weeks is usually the point they deem it "long" and the vast vast majority of people don't have symptoms beyond 6 months and that most people don't have anything other than a loss of smell and taste for example. A small handful do have worse symptoms. Not the claimed 10 million for sure. Its being misused by many organisations like Indy Sage and anti government types to try and make out we are going have millions suffering from some pretty nasty stuff post covid. And its simply scaremongering lies backed up with no facts or indeed evidence. I am getting quite annoyed to see people doing this being held up as some sort of fountain of knowledge instead of being called out for talking bollocks. Indy Sage for example.

  21. I’ve had a lot of these over the last year or so in the time since I presumed to have had Covid. The trouble is that I’ve had a lot of other stuff going on that has the same symptoms so no idea if it’s long Covid or not. I’m wondering if they can develop a test for it that can check for a trace of the virus in the system. Would probably have to be a GP prescribed blood test though

  25. Depending on where you're coming from, you might be better off getting off the train at Cosham (or Hilsea if you're on the slow train) instead of going all the way to the harbour. The campsite is at the other end of the (admittedly not very big) city to Portsmouth Harbour. Busses in the area are run by either First Bus or Stagecoach. Edited to add: Rome2Rio is normally pretty good for working out public transport routes.

  27. All about percentages though innit. Based on my extensive survey of my own behaviour which I assume applies to everyone, I know that I'm putting myself in more situations where those potential transmissions are going to happen now that I'm double jabbed. So each one's got a lower risk of me catching it, but the greater number of encounters means I'm rolling the dice more often. Bound to happen sooner or later, although I've got the added bonus of having already had it so maybe a bit more resilient. Definitely gutting about the weekend though, especially with the weather. I take it that you going and leaving her at home isn't really an option...😂

  28. Heya - genuine question as I'm interested and you seem to be the most informed on long COVID on here - how have medical staff been able to tell people they'll have it for life? My understanding was we don't entirely understand what it is right now, and new treatments are cropping up regularly? Unless it's trigged some underlying condition? Just struck me as odd. It's a difficult situation at the moment - just saw the Get Cape Wear Cape Fly tour due next month has been postponed as they can't get insurance for it. And shows that would normally sell fast don't seem to be selling as fast - though there could be multiple reasons for that (not least for us, it seems like every show we had booked in 2020 has been moved to September this year!) The weird thing is, I spent most of the first half of the year arguing with the "if not now, when?" crowd by saying "once all adults are double vaxxed." It seemed obvious to me - we make ourselves as safe as possible then open up. It made absolute sense to wait until that point. And that's roundabout the point we are at right now. And my view hasn't changed, which means I am now one of the "if not now, when?" crowd myself! We've done all we can, long COVID may just be something we have to deal with as a society. I don't see any other route out of it other than indefinite lockdown. We can talk all we want about distanced events and continued mask wearing, but in the period of time where we were doing that *cases were still going up*. At a slower rate, for sure, but if that's your "new normal" then they're going to continue going up (because exponential growth) and they're going to peak at the same point - it's just that peak will be at a later point in time. Which is useful if your concern is hospitals being overrun, but not if your concern is overall infection (and therefore long COVID) numbers. They'll be the same.

  33. I'm with you- while I'm taking part in it by going for a day tomorrow, reading and Leeds is going to be what puts next year's festival season in doubt I don't think you can social distance all however many thousands are there, masks wouldn't be able to be enforced. I've got a really weird mixed guilty feeling about these festivals I'm going to, but also feeling like I'm getting away with something I shouldn't be doing. It's good for me ahead of a very tough winter, but it's also making that winter tougher collectively. The sensible older people DO distance from others, but there are mosh pits and DJ tents and I'm pretty sure that's where its spreading the most. I guess the industry was always in a bad position- either cancel and destroy it all (capacity reduction surely the same result - less money, less jobs etc?) Or go ahead and become the obvious scapegoat. https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/circuit-break-lockdown-scotland-being-24839693.amp?__twitter_impression=true this article about potential lockdowns in Scotland makes no mention of schools reopening, just nightclubs. Reading and Leeds could easily be blamed for seeding covid in schools next week, leading to our own talk of restrictions.

The flag like, really helped, and if they were banned we wouldn’t have found each other. It was like, so ironic, like in that Alan Morrissey (from The Smiths) song.

  39. My solution is definitely both, as long as I have a crowd 😀. Also... Black Midi. I just do not get this fucking band. Don't get them on record, but thought maybe live they'll be good? Dear God no! Least enjoyable set of the weekend; I had to leave and retire to the tree. Genuinely though - clearly just a band that just aren't for me. But it's rare that I dislike a band this much that others seem to rave about 😅. Anyway, on you all go...

  40. The only thing I can think of that compared in terms of a presence and anticipation around the site during the build up was, bizarrely, for Lionel Richie. Flags, t-shirts, the "Shrinel Richie" that was doing the rounds. As much as I loved Lionel though, it's pretty safe to say that the Stones were better 😄

  41. My very brief thoughts on what I saw. The Cool Greenhouse After the long queue to get in I'm glad I chose these over Yard Act. Funny, catchy and just right to go along with a beer in the sun. 8/10 PVA I remember really enjoying their set at the time but kept forgetting that I had actually seen them throughout the weekend. 7/10 Horseman & The Uppercut Band They were alright, not a band that I would particularly rush to see again or buy any of their stuff but it passed time quite enjoyably. 6/10 Workingmen's Club I had big hopes for these before the festival and I had been listening quite a lot recently. The set was good but maybe didn't live up to my expectations, could have been due to the on stage problems. A lot of people I spoke to were raving about them though so may have just been me. 6.5/10 Nuha Ruby Ra I only caught the beginning of her set but really liked what I heard. I know she won the Rising competition but I would have preferred to have seen her somewhere more intimate and darker. 8/10(for the bit I was there for) JOHN The first of my must see bands for the weekend. Like the proverbial can of Cuprinol, they do exactly what they say on the tin: fast, loud, aggressive, all called John. I enjoyed it but I'd like to have a bit more light and shade throughout the set, it got a bit one dimensional after a while. 7/10 Big Joanie The second of my 'must sees'. A set of two halves this one with the second half being a lot better than the first. I'm not sure if it was a bit of a dodgy mix on the sound or if they just chose a few of their plodders to open up with but it took a while for them to get going. 6/10 Wu-Lu A hat-trick of must sees. I loved their looseness and the way they switched from super-chill to super-aggressive and back again. A 30 minutes set may have suited them better to concentrate their stronger material. 7/10 Los Bitchos A nice change of pace from what I had already seen. Happy music for happy people. 7/10 Nadine Shah The last of my must sees for the day. Brilliant performance, she looked like she belonged on a stage that size. 8.5/10 Ibibio Sound Machine My stamina was starting to wane at this point after a few too many Growlers. I just remember that it was a lot emptier than the crowd had been for Greentea Peng when we arrived. 5/10 because I don't remember much of it Charlotte Church's Late Night Pop Dungeon Could have been the best set of the weekend but my body gave up on me and I fell asleep sometime after War Pigs. 7/10 for playing War Pigs. Peaness Nice, wholesome pop music. A bit too twee for me. 7/10 Peggy Sue I don't know if it was the hangover or the sound but I struggled to hear them so struggled to get into them. 5.5/10 Newdad After taking some time to recuperate from the previous night's excess some jangly-guitar based indie-pop was a nice way to ease back into things. 6/10 Sinead O'Brien I enjoyed the arty-talking-pop but she may need a few lessons in crowd interaction. 7/10 BC Camplight Yes to bouncy, synthy stuff! No to drawn out introspection! 8/10 for the synthy stuff 5/10 for the rest. The Orielles My first 'must see' of the day and another must see that was slightly underwhelming. I don't know if I had been building bands up too much in my mind but I found them particularly 'meh'. 5/10 Black Midi Finally a must see band that not only lived up to expectations but totally blew them out of the water and beyond the stratosphere. One of, and possibly even the best live shows I've seen. Complex, challenging, fun, irreverent, mimes, smoking jackets and slippers. It had everything! 10/10 Do Nothing I went to catch some of their set before Mogwai, sadly Black Midi had just ruined all music for me so I didn't enjoy them quite as much as I would have done if they had played a couple of hours earlier. Still good though. 7/10 Mogwai Just what I needed to bring me down from a Black Midi high. The moon rising couldn't have been timed any better. Loved them. 9/10 Speedboat Yes to the Devo-y/Rezillos-y type stuff! No to the smooth Terence Trent D'Arby 80s pop type stuff! 8/10 for the Devo style bits 4/10 for the rest. The Golden Dregs Really cool stuff and great on a sunny Sunday afternoon. We couldn't quite pick out whose voice the singer's sounded like. We ruled out Nick Cave, Johnny Cash, Neil Hannan and John Spencer before giving up. Any one know who it is? 8/10 Crack Cloud Some really interesting ideas I wasn't blown away though. 7/10 Panic Shack Amazing! Pure, unbridled fun from the first song to the last. 10/10 Snapped Ankles A lot, lot better live than on record. Lots of bouncy synths, costumes, people in costumes planted in the crowd, what's not to like? 8/10 We Are the Robots Kraftwerk tribute in the Round the Twist tent. A guy with some mannequins playing Kraftwerk songs, I loved everything about it. 9/10 Dream Wife I didn't know much about them other than "Hey Heartbreaker". Totally blew me away and are now one of my favourite new bands. 10/10 Gwenno My fifth time seeing Gwenno and probably my least enjoyable - it could have been due to a post Dream Wife high though. 4/10 Will and the People Didn't know anything about them, I probably wouldn't buy any of their stuff and can't imagine going to see them specifically. But they were perfect band to close the festival out with. Fun, upbeat, a mix of styles. Loved it. 9/10 The Food A bit hit and miss. Crispy Duck Fries were a hit, the tartiflette from Le Grand Bouffe on the last night was inedible!! The Toilets The less said about them the better. The Grog Cracking, the queues weren't too bad for the most part although I always seemed to get stuck behind a group of 7 who wouldn't decide what they want to drink until they got to the till and would spend forever deciding what they want.

  43. Usually announced on the app on the day, think they did that for Broco in 2017 and BMTH (An Invitation to Salvation) in 2018. Check here on the main 2021 thread though, and the merch stands for any merch on sale for bands not on the lineup and the fences covered in posters, sometimes there's posters saying "2pm Pit Stage" etc. Not sure how but no one is ever out of the loop if they don't want to be.

I don't know if anyone has read Lol Tolhurst's memoir Two Imaginary Boys, but in that case a lawyer managed to instill a sense of grievance in Lol, leading to a lengthy court case where he sued his mates, later regretting it badly, presumably in no small part because he lost. The lawyers got paid.

  46. Another reminder for us to go and see these legends play live as much as we can. One day, there won't be any left from such a wonderful era. I do hope I get to see the Stones play just one more time. Been fortunate to have seen them half a dozen times but the last show in Cardiff a few years ago was absolutely incredible. I just kept shaking my head of how they still had so much energy to produce that kind of show. I still get chills thinking about the glorious crescendo of Midnight Rambler.

  47. Put out a music video that I think is my best work yet! A lot of work was put into this goofy song. I know some people on this forum enjoy what I do, so here's the latest (and greatest?)

  49. I dunno, Metallica has more metal-kids at their shows than the likes of Bring Me The Horizon just by being so much bigger, they can get away with booking 'tellica I reckon. I'm hoping that after seeing the meh reaction to Rage FR will give them a Finsbury date instead. Rage with Run The Jewels and Frankie C (who has had Tom appear on his album before) on the line up plus fixing the shit bars would be a fucking brilliant day out.
