    If you are going to be there c. lunchtime on the Thursday, the walk won't be that far and its almost completely flat. Also there is tons of camping space, so you'll be in no danger of getting a naff space. The further in you camp, while meaning a longer walk to/from your car, its closer to the 'arena', so less walking over the weekend.

    Hmm James. The Other Stage @ Glastonbury is probably my least favorite stage at any festival I've ever been to. Variety of reasons : Exposure to wind and hence frequently crap sound, shit food stalls at the back, possibly the worst stage for flags, etc. So to compare it to the Obelisk may be a bit unfair in some ways. And you will see a lot of folk with picnic blankets @ The Obelisk.

    Definitely worth checking out Shame. Probably my favorite album of 2018 to date, saw them live a month or so ago - and already got tx to see them again in November. YAK are also great live. On The National day, the unexpected bonus for me was Broken Social Scene. Don't really know their music, but saw them at EOTR a couple of years ago, and always wanted to see them again.

    Drinks other than beer seem to go down quite well in the sunshine there. Sometimes a little too well (or at least easily)!

    You've missed the Lake Stage! which makes 6.

    Predictions for 2018

    The previously announced headliners were Fleet Foxes and The War on Drugs, so both male and very static on stage, and my guess is the 3rd headliner was going to be either female and/or someone who would add a bit of visual razamataz.

    I keep on expecting targetted ads for anti-depressants to appear on this thread. And its getting worse. James Bay, FFS.

    You get ten acts and ten acts only

    Version 1 (before I listen to any of the acts I don't already know). Vampire Weekend Ezra Furman (Garden headliner or Woods sub? - I'd prefer the former, but if so, who would he clash with?) Protomartyr Shame Colter Wall Big Thief Jeff Tweedy Hookworms Gruff Rhys (still remember his set + .ppt presentation last time) Imarhan And now to start in on the playlist.

    Why stop there. Be greedy. Let's have both of them.

    Well I'd buy a ticket for that, which I'm not likely to do if we get the equivalent of this year's dross.

    2017 - How was it for you?

    I saw Car Seat Headrest last Tuesday at the O2 Forum Kentish Town. Whereas at GM, Will just said 'this is a James Brown number', at the O2 Will explained they were close to the end of the cycle of playing the 2 Teens albums and were getting rather bored by it and were yearning to move on, so they often now mess around with other stuff as a relief to try and stay fresh, then they played the James Brown number. I rather felt that the EOTR perfomance was a game of 2 halves, get the 'hits' out of the way and then play the non-standard stuff that hasn't been part of the set for the last 2 years. Didn't lessen the performance in any way, but I think it does rather summarise the issue for bands that have been playing basically the same set for 2 years, and I know CSH have because I'd seen them a couple of times before the O2 performance.

    You get 10 bands and 10 bands only

    Agreed, and I do hope you're right about that, but then we may run into a clash with Japandroids? So if that happens, it needs to be the one you saw during the day clashing with Japandroids. So it comes down to a coin toss. It all gets very complicated.
