  1. Future Islands have new stuff out, so I'm certain they'll be playing. Think they headlined JP last time?
  2. What's the shuttle bus like on Monday morning? Hellish?

    2020 headliners

    Billie Joe Armstrong was at the festival as his sons plays drums for SWMRS. I wouldn't be surprised if Eavis had a chat with him about Green Day playing at some point. Not sure if they'd headline the Pyramid on the 50th annivesrsary, though... They could potentially work on the Other.
  4. My mate had his camping cuttlery taken off him after a search. The same security guard also tried to take his box of wine off him as it had a picture of a glass bottle on. Anyway, this security guard's supervisor gave my mate his cuttlery back whilst the other guy's back was turned.
  5. How's everyone feeling now it's over? For me, unfortuantely, I feel my worrying, anxiety and overplanning in the days, weeks, months proior to the festival sapped all my energy and hampered my enjoyment whilst there. Friends who I don't see often commented on how, on occasions, I was withdrawn and quiet. At times, I felt low, depressed and caught in spirals of negative thinking, even though I was in the best place on earth. I'm now beating myself up for not enjoying it as much as I should have. So that, coupled with the usual post-Glasto comedown, is resulting in a pretty hard time. I did have some really good moments, and that's what I need to focus on. On the plus side, I could see this coming prior to the festival, so I'm being proactive by booking an appointment with my doc and seeking out therapy to manage this better. I will be in a better position for the big Glasto 50.
  6. I wore my Docs for the whole weekend in the 2016 quagmire and they were great. Maybe get some dubbin on them before next week, just in case.

  8. Peter Storm ponchos for less than a tenner here: https://www.millets.co.uk/mens/074106-peter-storm-men-s-poncho.html If you're going for a cheap rain coat, I think it's prudent to take a big poncho too. If there's a prologned deluge, you'll definitely appreciate the additional coverage.
  9. No worries. I think the main site often has discount codes to reduce the prices, but the eBay store seems to have everything at the discounted prices all the time.
  10. Yeah, 85l is definitely in the larger bracket and should be more than enough.
  11. Back's eBay store have the 85l Eurohike rucksack back in stock for under £20! Bargain: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/132816621496

    Do we think the Ally Pally gig will sell out tomorrow? Money is tight this month for obvious reasons, so I'd prefer to wait, but maybe that's a silly idea? It's twice the size of Brixton Academy, have they doubled in popularity since then?
  13. If I paid the balance for 3 of my friends, when they use the See Tickets tracker should it display my name/address for them? It currently does, but then I guess each ticket will be sent to each person’s own address?
  14. I think the vast majority of people who attend the Big Weekend aren't seasoned gig/festival-goers and live their life on social media, so documenting a fairly novel day is of paramount importance. Also, I love how the BBC have been running loads of positive stories on Middlesbrough this week in response to how it's one of the most poverty-stricken towns in the UK... and then have the gall to charge £6.50 for a pint of lager at the event.
