  1. Great work @northernringo - refreshing to see some actual data in amongst the opinions ๐Ÿ˜‰ Latest article from the BBC: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-china-51540981 reads cautiously optimistic to me.
  2. The lockups would definitely be safe - but I absolutely agree the last thing you want to be doing is hauling suitcases into & out of the festival. I donโ€™t have recent personal experience, but there are luggage storage services at all the main London airports and rail stations. Not self service lockers but managed service type of thing. Afraid itโ€™s probably not gonna be cheap for the full 5+ days of the festival. ๐Ÿ˜•
  3. Canโ€™t speak from recent festivals - last time I went to IOW was 2012 - but it wasnโ€™t that bad. Yeah, it is commercial and an arena festival, but had a friendly vibe despite the weather being a shocker. Iโ€™d much rather go back there than R&L, for example. Nothing will ever compare to Glastonbury, obviously!
  4. Anyone been to Nozstock with kids? Good for families? Since having children weโ€™ve not been to any festivals together for various reasons, but rather to my surprise my OH is quite keen. Weโ€™re a bit restricted on dates this summer but Nozstock is doable. Going to Glastonbury with mates so almost not bothered about the music - just wanting to find something with a nice vibe as a first adventure in family festivalling ๐Ÿ˜
  5. NGHFB into Taylor.....?! Would be an odd one.
  6. Thanks for the info! Might not be my thing, but I'll try & research the DJs a bit more & see if I can pick out anything that's likely to be more up my street for this year. ๐Ÿ™‚
  7. Bit clueless about that area of the festival to be honest. Is there any kind of common theme to the music & DJs booked for each venue, or is it a wild variation depending on who's playing? Looks like an amazing place, but if it's wall to wall D&B then that's not for me... ๐Ÿ˜
  8. Some cracking tunes and artists to check out on the playlist - thanks @Fish Bulb for putting it up there and to everyone who's contributed! Been keeping me going through a Friday afternoon. ๐Ÿ™‚ Will keep my ears out for songs to add too...
  9. Can you two please just take your flirting to DM? ๐Ÿ™„
  10. What sort of behaviour is that, getting an actual confirmation from the festival rather than indulging in pure speculation and guesswork?! Honestly... Wild statement too from that article on the Friday headliner: ๐Ÿ™„ Have they got the right year?! ๐Ÿ˜‚
  11. Poo Fighters. This thread could just run and run...
  12. Yeah this was in NME last week - at the end of the article: https://www.nme.com/news/music/glastonburys-immersive-360-degree-av-arena-the-gas-tower-to-return-in-2020-2605105
  13. That Thursday evening performance on the Hell stage in 2016 was flippin electric - dunno if the fact of it being Brexit referendum day made her lyrics even more resonant, but absolutely on fire. One of my favourite Festival moments. Back on topic - Dua Lipa did both 2016 & 2017, slightly surprised to see both on the JP - I'd thought she'd moved up a bit by 2017.
  14. Fair enough - I consider myself corrected! Maybe there is still some sliver of a chance. (Although, with no disrespect to Foals or Disclosure, I would consider RATM a bigger deal by some way than either...) ๐Ÿ˜
  15. Has any act ever headlined R&L after playing a lower slot at Glastonbury the same year...? Not going to check back over the historic lineups but pretty sure the answer is no. Iโ€™d have loved to see RATM myself, but this is getting into clutching at straws territory - they ainโ€™t gonna be there.
