  1. I don't know whether to berate or commend you for those Sunday night clashes. Swifty vs Foals vs The Isleys vs Orbital vs Caribou?! Pop on the pyramid, dancable Indie on the other, soul on West Holts, Dance on the JP, Electronica on the Park - if I curate Glastonbury that's what I'd aim for. I could see myself ending up at any of those, which (if I could get over the FOMO) would make for a pretty exciting Sunday. I could do a lot worse than end up watching Richard Hawley tbh too.
  2. I'm sorry but that's just not true. My ex spent some time with the band, particularly Tom Morello, and that isn't what they are about at all. They LOVED the Finsbury Park gig and, as has been said, had to play other gigs to fund it. Zack's feelings about creating new music seem to be complicated but Morello has continued to be fairly prolific one way or another and isn't all about cashing in.

    Other Stage 2020

    Prydz is a big omission from recent Glastonbury line-ups imo - but would he draw a big enough crowd as an Other headliner?

  6. I have had some mixed experiences of sound at West Holts over the years and I rarely go too close to the front. Jacksons sounded particularly terrible and Avalanchees weren’t great. Justice and Lizzie sounded pretty decent. Jurassic 5, Chic and Hot Chip all sounded immense. How much of this was down to the act/where I was standing/the wind/how sober I was etc. I have no idea.
  7. He’d make a good Blue Dot Headliner (alongside some more electro names on the other nights) imo - along vaguely similar lines to Pixies or Flaming Lips
  8. If I get a ticket and there isn't someone I am super excited about I'd be up for it. If I'm volunteering and have to sacrifice her to watch Macca I will (though would possibly sacrifice Kendrick over her). Greta booking generally though

    efests Exit Poll

    As an Englishman I completely understand the desire for Scottish independence now. Devastated. A divided left I could understand but even if you add them up... if this is to be believed the public want brexit and basically everything the tories stand for.

    efests Exit Poll

    If it is it hasn't felt like it here unfortuantely (mid Derbyshire, Tory59% Labour 36% last time). Our labour sign was stolen and I haven't seen another... but I have seen several expensive Tory banners (was tempted). Other than that we have received a few flyers but has been pretty quiet. The police advised the candidates not to talk at large gatherings...

    Latitude 2020

    If it weren't for the Chems I'd be completely underwhelmed (just wish they were on a Saturday), in keeping with the trend of recent years. I'll probably go as lots of my friends do. If the undercard saves it like last year I'll do the whole weekend, if not may do just the Sunday (assuming that is an option). Nothing against Haim, it's the presence of Liam Gallagher that turns me off.
  12. @Suprefan @zeppelin Aah absolutely fair enough... I'd quite fancy an after hours set but have no idea how big they are/where they'd play tbh
  13. Why mid afternoon? I mean I'm definitely on board but wondering why so specific!
  14. If I get to go then this is a must see for me. Have seen him before but not at Glastonbury. There are times when my expectations of an act's vocal performance or musicianship are pretty high... but Saturday night at the pyramid seeing a Beatle playing large quantities of their back catalogue? He'd have to be awful for it to really bother me. Yes they need younger acts alongside for a great line-up but it's a great booking.
