    2019 Improvements

    If i think about the things that annoy me when i'm there i'd say: More things to do on Wednesday/Thursday night. Probably licensing issues but make it a truly 5 day festival. Open a few smaller stages early, open up more late night areas. At the moment everyone crowds to the same thing and it's impossible to get in or have a good experience. Queues leaving these usually become potentially dangerous too. As mentioned above. More diversity to the late night music. I'm relatively happy with music, whatever it is, even if i'm not a massive fan like house but after 3 days of it, I want to stay out late but get bored. Embrace the fact that the late night areas are a huge part of the experience for a lot of people. When I first went to Glasto when I was 23 I absolutely loved the SE corner. Now at 31 I barley went there last year. BUT they need to dedicate more space to it. I just give up now because it's so busy and there's a lot of people in the same boat. Get rid of a few areas/stages and increase the sq/ft of the SE to make it huge. Incorporate different music in there, make it chilled in the day, etc...at the moment it feels like it's an add on that the festival doesn't really want to admit is massive in most peoples eyes and it annoys me that people miss out on it. I know, I know, the licence! Release staggered entry tickets. If you want to arrive on Wednesday you pay full price, thursday is £40 off, Friday is £75 off, etc...and limit the amounts of each tickets. Whilst I don't want anyone to miss out on days, the worst part of Glasto, by far is the queuing and stress of just trying to get in. I'd pay more to go on Tuesday night even! (realise this will cause a lot of hate!) Give food a kick! There's so much amazing food at glasto but feel like it's missing a trick of making that a real focus in terms of quality. Get rid of the general burger vans and sub par chow mien bars and get in more quality vendors.

    Just finished watching the fireworks and off wandering trying to find somewhere for my Mandy induced mates to dance.

    To get us through this tough time, today is exactly a year since the gates opened to Glastonbury 2017, probably my favourite year I've been to. So tell us exactly what you were up to a year ago. It could be specific to the time you're posting or a summary of the whole day! I had been queuing since about 4am. After the slight worry of what 'bag searches' meant and the joyous roar of the crowd as the gates opened, we were in and set up by 9am. After a slightly embarrassing chase of a milk van we headed off into the festival. I bought a jurassic park bumbag and a disgusting hawaiian shirt and looked for alcohol. Because I had been up all night, it felt like it was the early afternoon and I was confused that I was struggled to get a beer, at Glastonbury! It was of course, about 9.15am and after spotting 3 people with cider I meekly asked them where they got it and they pointed me towards the Somerset Cider stall. Cider and hotdog in hand, at this very moment a year ago I was laying under the multiple signposts in Williams Green, getting some shade and sipping my cider full of excitement about what the weekend was about to bring. Now you.

    Worst Headliner?

    Kanye was a snore fest. Florence tried her best but i had my heart set on Foos that year, and she just didn't have the back catalouge, Gorrilaz were awful and i left half way through to be greeted by an amazing Flaming Lips set on the other.

    Whats the most memorable event from Glasto 2017?

    Similar to me in 2014. Was so tough. But you'll get them in October!

    What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    No festivals this year (because they just aren't glasto eh?) I passed my driving test 2 weeks ago and my girlfriend is away from 22nd June so was considering a bit of a me only road trip, maybe to the site, or the area. We'll see.

    Whats the most memorable event from Glasto 2017?

    Loads and loads but one that stands out was being ridiculously hungover and all my mates being asleep still. Every part of me wanted to go back to sleep but I was at Glastonbury so i got up and walked the 15/20 minute walk to the Pyramid stage. On the way i got some grapes and a coffee (that was the best tasting coffee I had all weekend btw) and then stood in the very front row of the Pyramid stage and watched The Bootleg Beatles in the slight, spitting rain. I'd never seen them again and it just brightened my mood and kicked off my day. When i got back everyone was up and ready to go and we had a great day.

    Which Is The Best Day?

    Real toughie. Heart says Wednesday but head says Friday or Saturday. Wednesday is glorious in so much as you're back! you have the whole weekend ahead of you and you can't beat that excitement. At the same time easily the worst part of the whole weekend is queuing with all your gear. Last year we were in and pitched up by 9.30 but still queued for about 4/5 hours and that was probably our most successful year. Driving through the night and queuing also lead to a bit of tiredness, although theirs obviously cures for that. The other thing is that there's no bands. That's maybe the beauty of the Wednesday but by Thursday i just want it to kick-start already! I'll go for Saturday. Everyone is in full party mode, it's the biggest night for us usually, bands all over the shop, etc..

    Your favourite Glasto images

    Going through some photos and found some of last year. Some aren't the best photographically (out of focus, under exposed, etc...) but think they give a bit of a picture of the place.

    Why don't they let this many people in any more?

    As frustrating as it is when you don't get a ticket theres probably too many people there now. Not in a H&S way but getting away from the big stages/late night areas/dance areas on the Weds and Thurs. I've felt nervous in a few crowded situations, can't imagine what it would be like with another 50,000/100,000 people there.

    Glastonbury evolves

    Only time i went was midnight-ish on the sunday and whilst it was busy-ish there was nothing near to a queue. Think on other nights there was though.
