I was there for a bit of one of the games at the top of the woods stage so from the other perspective:
that game of cricket* was hilarious; there were about 40 fielders round the bat at one point, some great chirp going on for both batsman and bowler. A couple of catches went down which built to the atmosphere and when the lad was finally caught close in, the field erupted into a huge (for a cricket game)mosh pit, pogoing and hugging and cheering. Those memories will be spoken of for years, long after you have stopped tutting at it 😘
Moaning about how other people enjoy festivals is, i fear, symptomatic of how intolerant we have become as a society. We are too quick to pass judgement from.our own points of views. To bash people for being in the insta crowd for instance when we've facilitated that environment for our youngsters is frankly, fucking ridiculous. That is youth culture, we have allowed big tech to run our world, now our younger generations have been brought up in it - don't then have a pop at them for conforming with it's pressures.
*I'd also like to add how heartened I was by how much cricket i saw being played around the place. Clearly the WC and Ashes have been having an effect.👍
