    Resale Club 2019

    Sadly failed once again. Trying to keep my hopes up for Sunday is proving difficult.

    Resale Club 2019

    So my wonderful wife has decided that, even though she can't go this year due to health reasons, the line-up contains so many of my favourite artists that I should go. Of course, I don't actually have a ticket yet... I hope it's OK that I've added my name to the sheets, even though I haven't quite figured out system yet. I gather the paired names are trying for each other. If I'm lucky enough to get to a booking screen, should I just pick one of the unpaired names at the bottom?

    AOC at Glastonbury?

    The same Wikipedia page opens with " Snowflake is a 2010s derogatory slang term for a person ".

    Billie Eilish

    (Just kidding, Billie EIlish doesn't sound like crap and I'm honestly sure you're sincere in your appreciation of her as well.)

    Brexit at Glasto?

    If I understand your reasoning correctly, and the 'not understandings' that aren't admitting it are equally divide over "good", "bad" and "acceptable", and all 13% choosing "acceptable" are in fact 'not understandings'... Plus the 12% who admit they "don't know"... It's actually 51% who are clueless.
  6. Janet Jackson apparently announced a residency in Las Vegas, which may or may not include the Glastonbury weekend. https://www.reviewjournal.com/entertainment/entertainment-columns/kats/janet-jackson-to-perform-15-shows-at-the-park-mgm-1605624/ The "June 31" bit may be a clue that it's actually in July, in which case she'll still be free to do Glastonbury of course.

    2019 Headliners

    I wonder if the emphasis put on "female, non-british" wrt the legend spot was already a hint that the three headliners are male and british.

    In that case, I'll abandon my 500 word essay and instead point to this website, showing that there are at least 20 groups currently active as (some variation of) The Platters.

    The German part of Pink's stadium tour went on sale yesterday. Today, the tour has been expanded from 6 to 8 dates by adding second dates in two cities (Cologne and Munich). Does this make the two dates in London seem less ambitious? And by extension, a headline set at Glastonbury slightly more possible? Or at least the notion of playing third down more ridiculous?
  10. Greenface? Really?? Happy birthday Mr E!
  11. They created steps a few years back.
  12. Yeah, the seetickets website seems to be organised differently than what you'd expect from the web address. Most of the middle part doesn't really affect the navigation. The bit at the end doesn't seem to do much either. For instance, this also leads to the same page: https://glastonbury.seetickets.com/event/E-FESTmembersPRESALE/!!!!SUPERSECRET!!!!/1300000

    I think Stormzy recently changed the name of his Instagram account. If you google "stormzy instagram", the top result is @stormzyofficial, but that account currently has 0 messages and only 150 followers. However, if you google images of "stormzy instagram", there are loads of screencaps from the @stormzyofficial account. Older messages on the current @stormzy account also have replies tagging @stormzyofficial instead. So it seems that @stormzyofficial was the official account until very recently. Fuck I'm bored.
  14. Interesting. For their concerts in Amsterdam, they've steadily been downgraded through the years. With 5 members, they were at the 60,000 capacity stadium. With 4, they were at the 16,000 capacity Ziggo Dome. This time, the 3 remaining members are at the 5,000 capacity Afas Live. I figure two more tours until it's just Gary Barlow, busking at the Dam Square.
