    An Exped 7LW. That’s all you need. https://www.outdoorgb.com/p/exped_downmat_down_filled_camping_mats/

    NYC Downlow

    Oxymoronic advice, if ever there was some. NYC-DL is one place where I feel like I must be missing something. Outside the entertainment is great, with the cabaret to entertaining the queues. But inside it feels like any other club. I don’t get the hype. I’ve heard about this Black Room. Sounds like the place to go if you don’t mind being prodded and probed by randoms you can’t see. Doesn’t sound terribly appealing. Does anyone have any direct experience?

    Is anyone else still waiting to get properly excited?

    That’s true. In the excitement calendar, the first signs of the build is a real high point. I’ll book my flights in early March and the poster should drop before the end of that month also so it’ll soon feel real again.
  4. I feel quite weird about the festival this year. I know it’s amazing and I know I’ll have a fantastic time, but the real sense of excitement hasn’t kicked in yet. Can anyone else relate? I think the fallow year has a lot to do with it. I’ve not waited through one before and 2017 seems sooo far away. The rumours for this year aren’t thrilling me either, especially given the prospect of Macca just a few weeks ago. I’m also on the other side of the word so it’s hard to keep up with eFests Bant (TM). So I need something to kick my excitement into gear. Tips, perhaps videos, are welcome. Apologies for the downer.

    Deluxe diner

    I did it in 2017 and the food was great but my experience as a single customer was not. They kept double checking, leading me to have to confirm that yes, I was on my own. I was then tagged on to the end of a group, which I can understand in terms of tables/space, but it made me feel very ‘spare thumb’ like. The food and experience itself was great, but that was with standard Glasto fare to compare it against. If I was having a meal out and paying near £50 for a three course meal, I’m not sure this would thrill me.

    2019 Headliners

    Musically speaking, from my perspective: The Streets > Stormzy Tame Impala > The Killers Chemical Brothers > The Cure

    Who, though? She’d be better placed headlining WH or maybe even Other than propping up acts she has nothing in common with.

    If that’s the Other lineup, it’s where I’ll be (aside from Jonelle Monae) - that’s a much stronger set of acts than Stormzy/Killers/Cure.

    You’re killing me with your grammatical accuracy 😢

    2019 Headliners

    Woah, hang on. So your info is Killers will headline Pymild but The Cure will headline Other? So does that mean we’re still one main headliner down? Or have I missed who the third would be?* *please don’t say banjo & the lads EDIT: I’ve just realised your ‘other’ was lower case. Sigh. Carry on.

    2019 Headliners

    Yes, I think The Cure will probably headline Other and in the absence of anyone who disagrees, I think that’s the general consensus. Anyone? No? Well OK then 😉

    If it really is The Killers, I hope Mendip Council add a clause to the licence limiting renditions of Mr Brightside to one per ticket holder per day (not including Wed/Thurs). This can be monitored by a chip inside the wristband, programmed to detect Mr Brightside on a Shazam type algorithm. Ticket holders will receive electric shocks every time they so much as hum that fucking tune, starting at 100v and increasing by 30v each time. On the fourth occasion, security are alerted and the ticket holder is unceremoniously ejected from the grounds. Those who don’t hum or sing it at all are guaranteed a ticket for 2020.

    Just caught up on 18 pages of this thread. What a rollercoaster. Started with ‘nuff hype after Neil’s emoji, then resulted in an ungrateful, self-entitled hmph when two of the dullest acts I can think of headlining were suggested, then schooled by the wisdom of eFests about being a selfish, shortsighted sort. I’ve no idea after all if that if I’m a culchie or not. I fear I probably am. So in a nutshell: bollocks, but oh well.
