  1. Piccadilly Records (Manchester), End of Year Review 2019 is always brilliant. I've found so much great stuff over the years - well worth a browse ? https://issuu.com/piccadillyrecords/docs/eoyr2019_booklet_pages_lowres?fr=sZDM0NjU2NTAzNw

    2020 headliners

    Missed this. Where/ when etc?
  3. Another solution would be to pitch one big tent (I guess that would be called a marquee ?) that could sleep dozens (or more). It would cut down on costs and make it more economically viable perhaps? Obviously, a lot of people wouldn't be interested due to lack of privacy - also security could be an issue. Back in fence jumping times, a larger % of people used to turn up without anywhere to kip (I guess mainly because it was hard to get over the fence if you brought loads of equipment) and I recall people using a big communal tent that used to be where Big Ground is now (was it the Hare Krishna tent?) to kip in.

  6. Liam Gallagher Pyramid 2018 Now I didn't actively go to see this. Camping in Kidney Mead I could hear the intense awfulness of it all from the discomfort of my tent. Genuinely, shockingly, shit.
  7. Are pop stars now so devoid of talent that they can't actually perform a song live and entertain the crowd at the same time? Blimey, standards have really fallen. As for the "spirit of the festival" being shorthand for "stuff I dont like" - well, call me old fashioned, but if I want to see people dancing around to a pre-recorded track, pretending to sing for the TV cameras, I can always tune into Britain's Got Talent.
  8. Watching the BBC 'Highlights' programme last night and was shocked by the number of acts who were performing to backing tracks and miming. It seems that we have reached the point where it is acceptable for acts to turn up with a dance troupe and to perform a dance routine to music without any actual live music. It may please the record company bosses and producers at the BBC, but is this really in the spirit of the festival?
  9. Squid were brilliant - not only really talented musicians but the band were really tight and great fun to watch.

    They were asked not to open the bar this year. A big loss ?
