  1. I'd be surprised if it's that as they knew how many tickets they'd sold
  2. I paid for a ticket and it's coming up as invalid
  3. Get yourself ready for next year's Pyramid... And an even older classic from the first festival headliner...
  4. Yes love the Anderson .Paak one, can't wait to see him & his band on WH
  5. 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...
  7. I'm going to firm up my opinion and plump for an optimistic Tuesday Feb 25th
  8. 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...
  9. 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?
  12. I've been wondering if, coz it's the 50th, they might have a Legend Slot on the Pyramid each day Fri, Sat, Sun
  13. Good shout! Reckon they'd go down a storm on West Holts or John Peel - pretty likely they'll be there this year with their new album end of this month and a tour following (my daughter, also a major Glasto fanatic, is on their album cover!) Edit: They played Pussy Parloure on Sat last year, but they're worthy of a major bump up since then
  14. Love to see (again) at the Farm: Beth Rowley Roxanne de Bastion The Burning Hell Nick Waterhouse Colectro My Baby JJ Rosa North Mississippi All-Stars (this could happen, they're over here) And how about a first for Kristina Train! Or Tedeschi Trucks Band? Go down a storm on Avalon... (but I'll be very happy whoever is there tbh)
  15. No such thing as on your own at the festy!

    Queue Times

    Oh that's interesting, I've thought of staying there (I have family in Croscombe) - do you then drive yourself, or is there a bus, or do you have to take a taxi each day to / from the festival?

    2020 headliners

    I agree, it's quite a chunk of the anticipation and build-up that we can't now indulge in for this year But if it's true that the Other stage (or indeed, other other stages) will be hosting 'Pyramid-headliner-sized' acts this year, then there's a whole next level of very significant bands / acts to speculate about... the only problem is, what do we call the thread for that frenzy?
  18. 1) 56, with the body of a 40-year old (but now can't get anything else in the freezer) 2) Macca, Diana Ross, Confidence Man, Thom Yorke, Lana Del Rey, Kinks (oh and Craig Charles always!) 3) Fleetwood Mac, reformed Roxy Music

    2020 headliners

    Got to be - it's a nice compromise after Michael swearing he wouldn't have them back after their no-show - he puts them on the Other Stage as a slight rebuke, but they can still claim to be 'Pyramid Size' headliners

    2020 headliners

    I wonder if these Pyramid headliners’ early announcements mean we might also get a couple of Other Stage announcements before the poster, since they are also ”Pyramid-size acts”

    2020 headliners

    My reading is that Thom Yorke is the easy one, the "one has graced the pyramid a few times but not in this form" one But "The other one is definitely the best, wouldn't be out of place on a Sunday afternoon on the pyramid" as a West Holts headliner sounds to me more of a Nile Rogers / Chic thing. He's played both slots already in recent years, of course - but it's a helluva party booking for the 50th all the same!
