    Apologies if mentioned elsewhere - has anyone had any joy with the Groove Armada pre-sale? I signed up but received no details
  4. ... and we're in for the first time. Very excited. Has anyone ever got a cab home at the end of the night. We will camp but possibly not every night and we live fairly locally...
  5. Wow it was amazing to be back, even if only for the Sunday as I couldn't get out of work on the Saturday. Leaving Reading that morning and getting in with tent set-up in time for Bill Bailey was always going to be a gamble... what a feeling when we made it. Thought I might cry the first time I heard live music didn't imagine it would Bill Bailey playing a flute along to the iPhone ringtone. Self Esteem that followed was truly superb. Enjoyed Vanity Fairy though would have been better with actual musicians. After that to be honest I paid little attention to the music. There was stuff I quite liked scattered across the smaller stages but meeting up with friends (who I have barely seen since Latitude 2 years ago) in the sunshine was far more important. Yeah there were queues around the place but I managed to avoid them, ate (veggie) twice and drank beer all day (easier if you're a man of course and agree they need to sort out the toilets situation for the ladies). Wish I'd been there for Hot Chip and the Chems though
  6. ...and Fontaines DC are playing Truck on the Friday so Hot Chip should be Sunday
  7. This is my personal favourite Latitude line-up for years. If hot chip are the Sunday Wolf Alice, Chems and Hot Chip would be an excellent set of headliners across the two main stages.
  8. Whatever happens this was excellent. Reminded me of the 2011 era - unexpectedly finding out on the day and them playing a load of great new material on the park plus later the basement stuff. it may not be under the Radiohead title but it feels a lot more like it than Atoms for Peace and Modern Boxes

    Absolutely, getting a bit emotional tbh

    This link is still working for me from Wolf Alice but not sure if that is because I still have it open from last night https://watch.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/livestream-1/

    Enjoying Kano, more than I would expect to

    Enjoying reading the positive comments from people who never planned to watch it at 7pm. If it wasn't for that (and a live stream not streaming live is a big issue obviously) I paused the live stream last night when I went to bed and it is working for me perfectly now. The Smile sound amazing.
  13. Out of up votes but yes
  14. Should we do an efests choice Eurovision poll?

    Not sure giving it to them would have gone down well

    I'm watching on the zoom chat... a video call with poor audio of a TV on a 'live' festival which isn't really, this pretty much sums up a large element of the past 15 months

    Thank god for this, my only way of watching presently

    At what point do they have to just let us watch it back whenever we want... being able to pick and choose sets/watch some at midnight after eurovision would make for a happier household

    Part of me is annoyed... but it feels weirdly apt to have a big stress about getting into the festival related to seetickets.
  23. Getting really emotional reading these. I made it there for about 36 hours in 2019 in the end as we had a sick but stable child in hospital... but never really relaxed, I consider 2017 the last time I was really there and it feels like a million years ago now. I think I'll be in tears from the last half hour of the drive onwards but stopping at the top of the Worthy View on the way down and seeing the site in full... I'll be a wreck
  24. Very happy with that list, 7 were in my longlist, that Taylor album and Fontaines DC not really my thing but I can appreciate their impact. May have to revisit The Strokes Album as I used to be a fan and didn't really get into that album.
  25. At a time when most of us have so little to look forward to... I'm very excited by this 🙂
