    Elton John

    would take a lot to drag me from elton at the top of the bill. he's got the tunes & loads of his back catalogue is so much fun to drunkenly belt out. now i can't stop thinking about rocket man on the pyramid

    Glastonbury evolves

    more weird folk stuff. turn the theatre/circus area into late night folk revelry. like a bartholomew fair revival, banned in 1855 for debauchery. wickermen & animal mask shit. greenfields, but more spectacle & nudes

    Arcade Fire

    kneejerk review is that i personally think it stinks. and really wanted it to be...not bad. they haven't made an album i considered bad before. it's boring and really insincere, just like the marketing for it. you can switch up your style, you can look for other things to do with your sound but for christ sake make me believe you actually care. just one miserable prick's opinion but it's not for me. that said, i really like put your money on me

    Lianne La Havas solo acoustic set in Avalon

    Loved every moment. Mentioned before in relation to LlH that Au Cinema is mine and my gf's 'song', so when she played it first it was a wonderful moment for the two of us

    Glastonbury Mental Health

    Never spent so little time watching bands as we did this year. 'Must sees' fell by the wayside as we succumbed to the gentle lure of other, more immediately therapeutic whims. spent a lot of time getting stuck in making stuff in the craft field. it's a uniquely glastonbury thing to be able to do things like spoon carving, japanese raku ceramics glazing, basket weaving. things I wouldn't make time for in the real world even if i could - but when laid out in front of me, in the place I'm in with mental health currently, they were irresistible.

    Tom Waits

    genuinely way more chance of the oft touted populist improbabilities like zep or floyd. tom waits does not give a shit about music festivals

    Glastonbury Mental Health

    Also had a troublesome friday. my girlfriend had a panic attack during radiohead. we went up to the park and watched the end of flaming lips from the hill until she felt more in control. then i had a really hard time trying to get out of the park after flaming lips, right in midst of the arcadia crowd decamping. i couldn't walk at one point, felt completely frozen to the spot, couldn't look anywhere but down. we eventually got out and spent an hour in green futures just wandering between stages. helped massively but i was on edge all night. rest of the fest was easy. we never really put ourselves in the thick of crowds, spent a lot of time in green futures. a very different experience for me but great in a different way. my first without drugs & drink. sure, i didn't go for it with complete abandon and i was much more self-conscious when dancing and talking to people - but all that did was just reaffirm how great glasto is, that there's no right way to do it. would go as far as to say it was my best yet.

    Arcade Fire

    get there earlier rather than later imo. that place always feels a bit oversold and you don't wanna end up behind the bleachers, up the hill. big canopy things will destroy your view.

    Suicide Tuesday

    think i've just realised what's so hard about this one. it was my first glasto in this particular job, which has me completely by myself for 8 hours a day, 3/5 days a week. so i think it's just too quiet, i'm a bit lonely and stuffing my face with crisps and sugary coke.

    Your (potentially) Contraversial Changes to Glasto

    felt much busier this year because of the approximate 20,000 brass band members racing all over the site to play another brass cover of get lucky or some shit. i love a good brass band but fucking hell they seemed to be everywhere no more brass bands in the vending machine please!!
