    What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    A big portion of our Glastonbury group are heading to Love International festival in Croatia in June. We have wanted to do it for years but as it falls same time as Glastonbury we normally prioritise partying in Pilton. But fallow this year means we don’t have to choose. Also going to Dekmantel in Amsterdam in August

    Went to both Friday and Saturday. Wept like a baby both nights for Precious Time/We Grew Up At Midnight & the full encore They are the band I've seen the most times & will really miss seeing them tour. It was a good run but feels like it is over far too soon for me.

    Have a spare ticket for the gig at Ally Pally tomorrow as last minute drop out from a pal. Obviously want face value only for it. As physical ticket rather than e-ticket will meet outside gig to exchange ticket & money. Have also listed it on Twickets so if you want it let me know so I can remove it from there

    Hay fever crew 2017

    I've personally found it does. They have a couple of options for dry/itchy/watery eyes etc. Also helps if eyes are dry from being particularly tired or dusty.

    I have found that putting a bit of Vaseline around the inside of your nostrils seems to keep the sneezes at bay slightly. Also for itchy eyes Optrex Actimist eye spray which goes on closed eyelids (handy for people like myself who really struggle with eye drops). I'm sure there are other non-branded or supermarket own versions but personally only ever used this one myself.

    I was one of those left somewhat disappointed by Blonde. As individual tracks, I don't dislike any. But I feel like the album feels incredibly disjointed & not like 1 piece of work. My first thought when listening to it was that it sounded rushed (which we can assume it wasn't considering how long we waited for it). I much prefer Channel Orange as a whole & always go back to that rather than Blonde. Maybe my expectations were too high, but lots have my friends have said similar things.

    I went to Oval Space for Boiler Room a few months ago and no issues with sound that I noticed. The issue is more the ridiculous drinks prices & the fact that it is hotter than the sun as there is no air-con, just 2 industrial fans which do very little. That being said it can't have put me off too much as heading back there NYD for Robert Hood & Ryan Elliot.

    Kanye west confirmed

    He is obviously in need of help & hopefully he will get it. Sunday was 9 years to the day that he buried his Mum in what was very shocking circumstances. He has also had to deal with Kim's robbery incident last month where he was obviously not around to "protect" his wife. Something may have been brewing for a very long time & this was all the straw that broke the camel's back. It doesn't excuse letting down fans but it may go some way to explain his increasingly erratic behaviour as of late. Fans from his gig Sunday & all upcoming dates which he has now cancelled have been given a full refund. Now that obviously won't be full compensation for everyone as people will have travelled/booked hotels etc but he hasn't just left everyone out of pocket entirely because he can't be arsed to tour anymore. I am a fan, and I do find myself having to fight his corner continuously but you can't kick a man when he is down, especially over something like mental health issues.

    Glastonbury food with pictures

    Can 100% vouch for this place. I have a chicken wrap from here every year and it is fantastic. Not stingy on the meat or salad and big choice of sauces. Also really filling for a few hours after eating.

    My friends and I went on Friday and felt similar. The crowd were shocking and the queue was like nothing I've ever seen at Brixton Academy. There were so many blokes in vests off their heads (I don't have a problem with that normally) but just chucking their weight around making space where there just wasn't any. We ended up lurking behind the sound desk to the right as that was the only space where I wasn't ridiculously crushed against anyone else. Where they obviously wasn't assigned seating/standing, I feel like standing was massively over subscribed & they could have done with reducing number of tickets sold. I suppose you shouldn't really moan when you get tickets for a fiver but I definitely feel there was room for improvement.

    No worries at all. Thank you for letting me know I may have one sorted now so hopefully I will spot some of you lovely people once I'm there.

    Hi MoonBuggy Just wondered if you are selling the extra ticket you have?

    I echo the above in that SmokeStack was absolutely fantastic. Couldn't fault the beef brisket or the bun it came in. I was however very disappointed with the Piggie Smalls hotdog I had, it was very average. The same goes for Le Grand Bouffe. After failing to have one my first 3 years I made a beeline for it on Wednesday when I arrived. It was the most bland & dull dauphinoise potatoes I have ever had. I was gutted after reading so many good reviews on here.

    Secret resales

    Same as I have just posted in the competition thread but thought this may be of use to anyone still trying... No idea of details but came up on my Twitter feed so thought I would share just in case.
