  1. Can understand the anxiety, I think we've all gone through varying degrees of similar! I really do think as soon as people are into the site, it'll be a glorious atmosphere and one where we can forget about the outside world for a few days. We all need the release, frankly! Hope you have a great time.

    thanks for finding this! Ideal! Combining a wash and refreshment in one go! 🙂
  3. Hey all. Long time Glasto goer, first time Latitude goer. Hugely excited as I'm sure you all are. Delighted to be able to give my kids another festival experience (2 and 4 year old) - looks like there's plenty for them to do and see. Night-time wise, is it all mainly dance music or is there other stuff going on as well? Not that it matters, everything's a bonus this year! Also, impressed there's a Co-op on site - is that usually well stocked? Thinking more for kids' breakfasts and snacks etc.
  4. It would make my summer if it was still able to go ahead! Had Glasto tickets as well from last year.
  5. I agree - though I hold out some misguided optimism that with furlough ending April, the legality being reviewed end of March, that there is light at end of tunnels. It's just whether it's enough time - as has been mentioned a lot in this thread, things need to be booked and paid for.
  6. I'm getting more and more pessimistic that it will go ahead. I think it SHOULD go ahead, but I'm starting to think it's too much of a stretch. By June, a huge amount of the population will not only be vaccinated, but have inherent immunity through previous infection (not to mention pre-existing immunity already widely studied and known to be a 'thing'). Quite why we need any restrictions whatsoever in June, I have no idea, but UK Gov will work on precautionary principal and make a good attempt at screwing the entire summer economy. If they cancel Glastonbury, what else goes? All the others? Edinburgh? All the stadium gigs? Everything across Europe? I guess we get ourselves prepared for that. Many will simply not survive another lost summer.
  7. Putting my part-time immunologist, virologist, epidemiologist hat on - COVID just won't be much of a 'thing' by next summer in the UK / Europe. It's probably endemic now already. It's not to say Governments won't continue to make bizarre decisions, but virus outbreaks don't last years - SARS 1 lasted about 8 months (obviously a significantly less impactful disease).
  8. Technically the sunset clause of masks being a legal requirement (and not even outdoors because that's never been part of it - https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2020/791/contents/made) is July 24th 2021, so it disappears in the summer anyway. (it's also due for review by Hancock on Jan 24th - I imagine it'll continue as it is). Regardless of anyone's views on these, there is absolutely zero reason to cover healthy mouths and noses during the non-respiratory illness season - hence they won't even be a thing by then, I'm 100% sure of it. If people want to continue wearing them, they'll have every right to do so, but for much of society, we'll simply return to how things used to be; personal freedom.
  9. Honestly can't see that happening. Not legally enforced. It might return to guidance/personal choice. Emotive subject though, so am staying out, haha!
  10. To add some further positivity, a host of European festivals appear to be progressing full steam ahead; Mad Cool, Nos Alive etc. In fact, festivals and artists are booking up all over the place.
  11. You've articulated it better than I could!
  12. Numerous things; Furlough ends March. Money running out / can't bank-roll any more Legality runs out in March, there'll be no justification for restrictions beyond then (anything will go through standard Parliamentary scrutiny, not Emergency Powers) Vaccine roll out through Dec onwards Country is reaching a more natural level of immunity in the population (I'm sure many have lots of thoughts on this, it's merely an opinion based on lots of reading, but please treat it as such) There will simply be almost zero COVID in the UK come June. Therefore, we party on!
  13. You want someone who catches a virus through no fault of their own (it's a microscopic pathogen) to be denied hospital treatment should they need it, because you might not fully agree with their 'behaviour'? I mean, I've read some responses, but that's impressive.
  14. Thank you for rolling over tickets. We'll be back in those fields. Just not yet. Love to all.
  15. it's fine, just don't laugh too close to someone else's face....
  16. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-51812326 " Dr Harries said cancelling big outdoor events like football matches would not necessarily be a decision supported by science. "The virus will not survive very long outside," she said. "Many outdoor events, particularly, are relatively safe."
  17. Interesting read. https://www.accuweather.com/en/health-wellness/coronavirus-expert-says-the-virus-will-burn-itself-out-in-about-6-months/679415
  18. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-51765401 "Asked about the potential impact on major events, Dr Calderwood said: "The emerging scientific advice is that large-scale gatherings, particularly those in the open air probably don't make a big impact on the transmission of the virus in the community."
  19. The hysteria. Wowzers. The media really do whip us into a frenzy, don't they?
  20. Don't forget it's not just 'big' events. Footy up and down the country sees 40k crowds across cities. Gigs in multiple cities a week of 5-10k
  21. We used to take pouches called 'Look What I Found' - which were a bit like these: https://basecampfood.com/collections/camping-meals They don't seem to be around much any more. They were about £2.50 a pouch and easily heated on a small camping stove.
  22. I've a feeling Roger Hodgson from Supertramp has been mentioned here before, but his tour schedule has a nice gap.... https://www.rogerhodgson.com/documents/tour.html
  23. Shovels and Rope, the Americana duo, are in the UK in the days leading up to the festival. Playing Edinburgh the Sunday evening before. Would love to see them at Avalon!
