  1. Best was probably the rotisserie chicken, tasty and good value. The poutine place near Leftfield was not as good as in 2019, so disappointment there. Had some really good chips from the Squid place by the Other. Fish Finger Heaven in the theatre & circus area was excellent, shout out too for Tea and Toast a couple down for well priced Assam tea. Best chai on site is still from the Lunched Out Lizzard cafe in Green Futures. Best coffee... probably Camper Coffee on the bit between BBC Intro and Other.
  2. 117,061 from 9.00 Thursday morning to 9.30 this morning.
  3. On Wednesday morning, when I was supposed to leave, I woke up feeling like crap and with mega anxiety. The reduced train service had me nervous about queuing etc given the expected heat. In the end, I stayed home, got up stupidly early on the Thursday and caught buses from Exeter to the site, was in and tent up by 9:45. I definitely felt like I'd missed a bit, always liked the fireworks etc on the Wednesday, and just the chance to wander about in a little less of a rush. Whoever's idea the larger woodchip, for want of a better term for it, it definitely did it's job in so far as that the little rain we had didn't cause any issues, but it seems it did for a lot of peoples feet. I was in walking boots all weekend, and had horrendous blistering from the wood and stones (boots fully worn in with lots of miles). The lack of crowd control around the Pyramid field when Diana Ross was on was appalling. The track across the top toward The Woods was solid with people, nobody could move on or off the field with any ease, and the crushes in times must have been quite scary for children, there's clearly a limit to how many can get on the field at any given time. Is the festival attracting too many really big acts, resulting in there being more pinch points as more of the crowds want to see the same stuff? Can't wait for next year.
  4. We were also camped in Pylon, and found it to be much tidier than some of the other fields during the festival, and being left very clean as people left.
  5. Once the tent is up, and a ton of water has been consumed to rehydrate in the record June summer heat, a slow wander across to the greenfields in search of the Lizard cafe for the first of many cups of their chai over the weekend.
  6. That would be a mega booking. Would love to see it.
  7. I was at this one too. Thought both the support bands were excellent, and clearly all having a lot of fun touring together. Mysterines have definitely grown much more confident as a band, will be interesting to see how they follow up this record. Off to America next month, imagine they should do quite well with the more recent sound. Agree though, be nice to see some of the older songs, but I guess as they gig more they may play slightly longer sets which enable them to mix things up more. Really liked the venue, and will definitely be looking out for gigs there in future.
  8. Exactly the same here. Being directed from the booking page to a holding page to access the page you've just left is a bit rubbish.
  9. November and December dates from Clutch. Dublin and Belfast already announced for July.
  10. The kind where people can enjoy Supergrass and then leave before things get dull. I see this as a good thing.
  11. Would love to see him. Shame the Liverpool and London dates aren't the other way round... at Elvis Costello (and Ian Prowse) at the Phil on the 10th.
  12. Certainly hope so. The one I'm looking forward to is the debut from The Mysterines - Reeling. Think it's out in March.
  13. Dark Star

    The Reytons

    They keep coming up on the next suggested on Spotify after Mysterines, who I've been listening to a lot. Need to investigate further as like what I've heard.
  14. Hoping they might turn up at the farm, 3 nights in a row may not be so hard if only doing a 45 minute or so support slot.
  15. Holding your nerve on these Coldplay tickets until day of show should see some bargains on Twickets. £40 probably secure a GA ticket, especially on midweek dates.
