  2. There’s an army of people reading that would absolutely smash this sheet if they were available to help for a short period of time on Thurs or Sunday or ideally both . Please contact Matthew to help . I’m helping someone from here Thurs but will have sheet open incase departures aren’t available and hopefully will be full steam ahead . There will be some regulars on there . So if you aren’t sure help them and that should help the entire sheet as the help then becomes available from them to help others . Hopefully some spreadsheet green appears later in the week

  3. Anyone catch any of Coachella thus far? I saw Deftones, Justice and Vampire Weekend and I'm even more excited for Thursday now. Justice set was epic. Aside, but the crowd for Blur were embarrassing.

  8. They're one of those acts where when someone who's never been asks afterwards what was your highlight and you try to explain that one of them was enjoying cheesy music dj'd by two women dressed in pinnies and waving around feather dusters. And then you give up and say one of the headliners.

  12. It’s not a pain that goes away particularly - experienced same loss in 2021. It’s ironic that while I’ve no intent to see Coldplay, now you’ve got me thinking, ‘Fix You’ can move me to tears just by thinking about it, let alone hearing sung to me live, by Coldplay themselves… sh*t, I’m gone 😭 very much hoping that doesn’t ‘don’t impress me much’

  15. Yes, it's all very odd. You'd have thought that they would have just used the same successful format as last year - if it isn't broken, don't fix it, kind of thing. Maybe there was a cost element to making that still be a thing, and one which some budget holder had kittens thinking about.

  17. I've done recycling centre once but basically you'll be sorting the recycling into plastic/paper/cans etc. This can be one of around 3 roles: 1) tipping the bags onto the conveyer belts. 2) sorting the rubbish that is tipped and putting it into respective wheelie bins. 3) Swapping over full wheelie bins for empty ones and taking the full ones to be emptied.

  18. OK. I'm down with Avalon or somewhere getting on the dog'n'bone to Andy Scott for an afternoon Sweet-fest. Chinnichap tunes are low key goated when glam rock is the vibe.

  26. I think she's f**king amazing and from NFR onwards has absolutely stepped up a gear. Some of my favourite records of the last decade.But I also think she's way better on record than live, and that's absolutely fine. There are artists who are phenomenal live and mediocre recorded. She's the opposite. Almost no acts can do both equally well..

  29. Could you gaffer tape the pole vertically to the backpack ( if you were to do it horizontally you could end up on manslaughter charges)?

  30. Just watched Raye's set from Coachella and it was pretty impressive by all accounts. They only gave her 45 mins (expect it to be an hour at PKP) but even though I don't know much of her stuff it all sounded great. The Marquee often lines up against the Dance Hall, which would mean a potential clash with Brutalismus 3000, who I am probably going to see the following week at Field Day anyway, so shouldn't hopefully be too much of an issue. There's also Charlotte De Witte later this morning and then Barry Can't Swim tomorrow from the PKP line up. Really hoping Orbital, Gesaffelstein, The Last Dinner Party, L'imperatrice, The Beths, Carlita, Jockstrap and Vampire Weekend get added too!

  33. I think that's a little harsh, she played the same stage Andy C played last year. She was a special guest I believe at Tramlines or one of those the last couple of years, is that any different go Hard-Fi, Natalie Imbruglia and Blossoms having done the special guests and afternoon slots at them including The Vaccines as well? She's not a constantly touring dj either. She might. She might be a radio dj but so is Danny Howard and he plays some big slots.

  34. I saw Steve Cradock sharing this on his socials so I think it’s the full band. He doesn’t really do acoustic. I reckon it’ll be close to a regular set.

  35. Was also there. Absolutely loved it. At times it felt like 1989 and back in some rave in an old warehouse. So many people off their nut. Potential fiasco averted entry wise as we got to the venue at about 19:40 and the queue was beyond belief to get in. I said to the other half that someone senior needs to make a decision on speeding up entry or we ain't going to be in until 20:30. They had a load of staff with scanners on the VIP lanes and accessible lane doing zero so they made the correct call and just opened up everything to general admission. I think the drug dogs also took a back seat. A great venue and will certainly be keeping an eye on it for future shows and a fantastic gig

  39. last week i saw talking heads tribute act Speaking In Tongues they performed 'stop making sense' in full, and were utterly superb , they completely nailed it - as you probably know I'm a huge talking heads fan, and i wouldn't accept any old rubbish.I'm surprised that they're not getting round more than they are... the venue i saw them in was Bristol's lost horizons which is run by some of the shangri-la crew, so they might pop up somewhere at Pilton this summer, maybe.

  40. I've just stumbled across this https://www.timeout.com/london/things-to-do/win-a-pair-of-tickets-to-glastonbury-festival?package_page=48309 Not sure if its been mentioned before, or not. In fact, I'm not even sure if it's current. I popped my details in anyway.

  41. 8 of the major meteorological agencies around the world have released their temperature forecasts for June. All 8 have gone for a warmer than average June in the Glastonbury area, some considerably so. Given the effect global warming has had on the climate and the temperature records that have been broken over the last year, that’s no real surprise, but nice to see such consistency nonetheless.

  42. That's definitely not solving any of last years issues, so I hope they have something else up their sleves. Would be interesting to know the thinking behind the setup, when it comes to the floe between scenes and creating a maximum audience for their artists as it puzzles me every time. Anyway.. Thursday and Friday filled with clashes, while there a giant holes on Saturday and Sunday. Fingers crossed for cancellations and new interesting bands in 😉

  45. Never stumbled across this thread before, but wish I had. I've had depression my whole life and spent many years drowning the negative thoughts with alcohol and playing at being a "normal" citizen. My first Glasto changed my life as it opened my eyes to so many things, but also showed me that humanity and society could be inclusive, supportive and differences were to be celebrated. In 2013 I split with my wife of 10 years, with whom I have 2 kids and the event triggered me. I hated being on my own away from the kids and after 6 weeks attempted suicide. Luckily, I failed. I got some therapy and support and have been largely OK every since. At G last year, I had an altercation with a coked up selfish w*nker and went to throw a punch. Luckily, my group stopped me and his stopped him. That night I went very dark. By the end of July I was still in a bad place and blaming myself, feeling guilt, shame, self loathing and work pressure was ramping up. My mind broke. My wife had to stop me slashing my wrist. I went back into therapy, on to antidepressants and had 10 weeks off work. I'm lucky. My family, friends and employer were nothing but understanding and helpful. I now feel like myself again. I'm a little concerned about this year's festival and for a while considered not going, given what happened last year. There was so much inconsiderate behaviour, open cocaine use and (to me) tension in crowds that I'd never really felt before. The flashpoint when I lost it was by no means the only incident of pushy (coked up) selfishness I'd experienced that weekend, which felt a million miles from previous festivals. Maybe I was already in a downward spiral, but I still have a degree of nervousness about this year. Luckily, I've had a refresher in coping techniques. Per the YouTube clip above, I think most of the attendees will have some demons. I'm 49 so struggle a little bit with being open about this IRL as my upbringing was very 70's/80's. All I will say is get help if you need it. I've decided this year that if the "vibe" of the festival is more 2023 and less 2019/previous and there are selfish, pushy w*nkers and blatant coke-heads everywhere then this will be my last. For my own good.

  46. I don't recall in memory football ever being shown on West Holts during the festival. In 2010 they carved off a field but I am fairly sure they said they wouldn't do that again. If it was a final I could maybe understand people going off to watch but the way I see it they are knock out stage games and either they get knocked out and it would put a bit of a downer on your festival or they win and you'll get to watch the next game when you are home.
