  1. Got any for the National day?
  2. I think I did overall enjoy myself, and just need to come to terms that I find festivals overall bloody hard work. It felt so constantly ridiculously busy all the time, with people dawdling and generally lacking spacial awareness on a large scale. Perhaps the searing heat made me a bit more irritable. I've spent a while trying to find the magic of it all, as sometimes it's hard when you're paying hand over mouth for a cheap burger, pressed up against people not moving for half an hour and dealing with that EE/lock ups debacle. If Glastonbury was a national service we'd probably be protesting its privatisation. All that said, I did see some great sets. The Killers were note perfect, Sports Team blew me away and Slowthai was messy as anything. Then there are those moments of sheer joy where you do get it. I decided to wonder up to the hill to try and see the sunrise this morning and it was so calm, peaceful and serene. Just beautiful. And the roads were pretty much deserted. Compared to the Wednesday when I could barely move and you're just sitting there watching people do all sorts. I really do find it a festival of extremes and I can't quite work out if I love it or not! To be fair I didn't encounter any dick heads as such, everyone seemed to keep to themselves. Sometimes I do wonder whether anyone who applied for Love Island but didn't quite make it gets a complimentary ticket.

    Is It Too Hot?

    My favourite heat related moment was when Slowthai took his socks off on Saturday and instantly realised his mistake.
  5. Who took you by surprise? Either a new find or someone you saw for the first time. Mine would have to be Sports Team. Went along thinking they were alright based on their tunes but they properly blew me away live. They had the crowd in the palm of their hand. Definitely now on my radar going forward, stage prescence in buckets.

    The Streets

    Yeah, I'm sitting on the grass outside becuase it's rammed and I can't be arsed moving elsewhere.

    Billie Eilish

    Was quite far back but could barely hear a thing. Left early.
  8. I would've loved TAYLOR swift this year, can easily see next year with her album out later this year. Think Fleetwood Mac/Paul McCartney could fill another. Foals do seem like an obvious other choice which is a shame because they bore the tits out of me. But seems a couple of years too early for the likes of Wolf Alice.

    The Killers

    I was there and maybe my favourite headline set so far. Just jubilant and so many bangers, done bloody brilliantly. Nailed it.
  10. Damn, I checked and left Park just before that Crows Nest announcement. Would've loved to have seen Sports Team.

    Frightened rabbit tribute is at Stone circle at 9.30pm, look for the giant cross and there's a really cool special guest too
  12. I've pretty much be struck by awful anxiety over the past year or so, a lot of health anxiety which is mostly really irrational but all consuming. This has been one of my sources of absolute, take your mind off of it all, joy so I can't wait. That said, I'm still petrified I'm going to get the lurgy in the next 48 hours meaning I'll have to miss the entire festival, ugh!
  13. Also having a bit of a time of it at work so just put the out of office on and no thinking about it for the next week! Added some final bits and starting to charge the bits which need charging. Still got a bit to do tomorrow but it's so close!
  14. No running a week before Glastonbury from now on!
  15. Well I did it yesterday, but it's becoming more painful today. Decided to get back into the old parkrun and took it way too seriously when there...now have foot pain on the bone on the outside of my foot which is making it quite difficult to walk without pain. I've had it before and it took a few weeks to be back to normal, anyone got any suggestions for something to ease this kind of pain in anticipation of five days of lots of walking?! I've also started getting clothing ready, just waiting on a few things to arrive in the post and I'm almost packed!

    Me neither, I reactivated last night and it was still TBC. Hoping to make it and still be able to join my friends for Denzel Curry.

    Ta! Definitely looks interesting. Still one of my favourite Glastonbury memories was them on John Peel when they'd sent out loads of flags in the post and it was just a sea of flags.

  20. It'll be the last time I go and see someone like that at a festival day. I do not understand it. If you want to talk through the entire gig just fuck off somewhere else. Was the same for The National last year. I enjoyed the hour of Bon Iver I saw anyway, decided to turn it in and leave people to their discussions.
  21. Gonna stand by the fact this could be one of the sets of the weekend.
  22. Brockhampton, The National, Bon Iver, Busted, Middle Kids, Parquet Courts, The Strokes, Big Red Machine, Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, Boygenius, The Drums, Big Thief, PUP, Tyler The Creator, Kali Uchis and I bloody wish Scott Huchison was still about so Frightened Rabbit could play.

    TBAs 2019

    Didn't The Killers do the secret set in JPT previously? Much bigger than Foals. Be nice to have The Strokes but wouldn't make much sense up against The Killers.

    Frighteningly average this year with a bunch of absolute tosh (Gerry Cinnamon, Capaldi and such like) but I'll take that as an opportunity to get stuck in to some bands and areas I usually wouldn't! Still buzzing.
