    Me too. This is awful news. Shit. Shit. Shit. Can someone please make 2020 go away please?
  3. Anyone else tuning in to this tonight? https://actionallareas.org
  4. He's got European dates planned for July, so fingers crossed.
  5. No, not concerned about whether it's genuine - just checking he/she doesn't work for The S*n or Daily Mail 🙃 Thanks
  6. What is the name of the major publisher? Book/ newspaper? Thanks!

    The poster 2020

    Very happy to see Herbie Hancock/ Khruangbin...otherwise it's so, so, 5/10 for me. As much as I like Editors, Goldfrapp, Primal & Manics, they've got 20 odd Glasto appearances racked up between them already...feels a little stale. PSB headlining a stage in 2020? Hmmm.

    I've got 4 tickets for the Manchester gig tonight on Twickets if anyone is interested (FV obvs). Gutted I can't make it 😐 https://www.twickets.live/block/239693535305126,4
  9. I believe the front wheel turns and they hold up really well. As others have mentioned mud/ woodchips can get into the wheel arch of a trolley if the wheels are small. The terrain can get rough at Glasto - the number of abandoned trolleys you see littering the site is mad. Generally, the wheels can't handle the weight/ terrain and fall off. If I had to design a trolley from scratch for Glasto, I'd go for 3 big pneumatic tyres. 👍
  10. I wombled one of these from Pylon Ground in 2019. It's the perfect trolley - it cruises over rough terrain, has plenty of storage, and quality build so the wheels don't fall off.

    US Tour is on the way
  13. To get a good idea of crowd sizes in '94, one of the bigger sets of the fest was Galliano (even though they were fourth down Pyramid Saturday). As mentioned, Big Ground camping used to be bigger. 300k? Nah. It feels much more crowded nowadays. Looking back (I was there...physically at least)...wow, what a line up! RATM, Nick Cave, Johnny Cash, Bjork, Beasties and look at this line up for the Other (then NME) on the Sunday 😧 ...bit of a shame really because I literally can't remember any of it ðŸĪŠ
  14. Maceo Parker - no shows in the UK (yet?), but in Malta mid July
