  1. First of the posters with days and the running order - wonder if that’ll be true for the remaining ones, and then we can really start fretting over the clashageddon
  2. First poster with what looks like the actual days and running order!
  3. I seem to remember he pulled out and ended up not appearing in the end, which was a shame. Anyone else remember and can confirm / deny? edit: it’s true! https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/festivals/glastonbury-2015-stephen-hawking-pulls-out-of-festival-due-to-personal-reasons-10349017.html #slownewsdayuntil10oclock
  4. Oh wow there is! (or at least was!) Never noticed that - ta Mr Z
  5. Spike quite a bit bigger and more open apparently - hopefully still with a stage (maybe even a bigger stage?) I thought the Glade Café/Bar was on the other side, as you head past Spike towards Greenpeace? And the bar between Glade & Other was not really linked - was it called the Solstice Bar or something?
  6. Yeah I was worried about that too, since there's no mention at all of any acts for the Spike. They used to have real (good!) bands there before as well - hope they still do in their new expanded form, had some great boogies up there....
  7. Well I guess if you were going to see just one act at WH, that'd be the one! What an incredible performance
  8. One of my top Glasto spots too, but my mates' routine starts earlier: we have a habit of gathering at WH as soon as it's starting (11 normally) for a breakfast Toffee Apple cider from the Bro's, with hopefully something chilled yet groovy and a bit jazz-worldy just coming on stage. What a perfect start to the day! (And it usually just gets better from there....)

    Dear old Jeremy Hardy, what a loss. Managed to talk to him briefly at his last Glasto appearance, what a lovely guy, and incredibly funny
  10. I'd be surprised if it's that as they knew how many tickets they'd sold
  11. I paid for a ticket and it's coming up as invalid
  12. Get yourself ready for next year's Pyramid... And an even older classic from the first festival headliner...
  13. Yes love the Anderson .Paak one, can't wait to see him & his band on WH
  14. Maybe the ‘one legend slot per day’ fantasy is coming true before our eyes...

    Lana Del Rey Confirmed?

    It's *after* the pub I *need* the support...
  16. I'm going to firm up my opinion and plump for an optimistic Tuesday Feb 25th
  17. Very rammed all the way back for Kylie - although there were several quite big pockets of space towards the middle of the crowd from what others have said.... If only there was a way of evenly distributing the crowd of people in a field, so all the 'empty' spaces get occupied! One day, using personal wearable alerts based on info from drones perhaps, but sadly not for Glasto50...
  18. From Emily's comments I think we get it earlier this year - possibly the earliest ever. It's a special one, and we already know more than we've ever known before about who's playing at this point! I think this is all because they've been booking the acts for the 50th for the last three years or so, so they'll have all the main stages sewn up earlier than ever. This makes me think we'll get the first poster earlier than the previous earliest of 15th March - I'm going for last week of Feb or first week of March (of course, I'm hoping that's the case coz I can't wait! Although more than a little pleased about what we know so far)

    Lana Del Rey Confirmed?

    Yeah I find that very annoying too - but these are often the people who are securing their position for the next act on, so they don't give a f*** for who you're trying to listen to

    See Coaches

    Taking the coach from the O2 for the first time this year - 9AM on the Wednesday. Can anyone enlighten me as to how long it's likely to take, so when we might arrive at the site?
  21. I've been wondering if, coz it's the 50th, they might have a Legend Slot on the Pyramid each day Fri, Sat, Sun
