    So whose getting ready for next year?

    Back from Beautiful Days yesterday. Prep for next year started the moment I left the site

    It took you 3 hours to figure out who I was.

    NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Nothing but love Guy. Coming out of festival season always gives me a kick up the arse to do stuff, as I've spent weekends seeing how amazing the world can be when we get it right

    NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Survived Beautiful Days gang Such a chilled festival, first of the smaller ones I've done so it came as a very pleasant culture shock! So the tent review for @funkyfairy... I got distracted by stuff but I did manage to borrow a chair from the coffee tent for illustrative purposes I'll not tell you a lie, you'll struggle to sit under there with a chair. I'm 5'11" and I'd say the roof of the canopy was at neck height when I was sat in that chair. But for sitting on the grass for a bit of shade or shelter, it was fine. Pros: Outside shell goes up first, so if the weather's dodgy you can get a dry spot pretty quick. Also good when taking it down as you can keep the inner dry. Nice and roomy, would do 2 people for 5 days ok. Easy to put up (there's a but in the next bit). Didn't have much wet stuff, but certainly felt it would hold up. Cons: The porch bit isn't as useful as they'd sell it. Not big enough to stand up inside. Although it's simple to set up, you do need to get the outer sheet square first time, otherwise the lines are off and you'll get contact between the shells. You'll need 2 more pegs than they give you if want to switch easily between porch open and closed. I do have to take it back as some of the stitching on one of the toggles had started to pop, but I don't know if that was where I over stretched it when it first went up by not having it properly squared off. Whether that's something that'll repeat I don't know, but it does have a year's warranty for faults. Either way, I'm definitely happy enough with it to get a replacement rather than getting a refund.

    Turns out the cocktails at BDs are rather good. Bit battered now...

    Caught up on the rest of the telly show. Watching yeti put a pillow in its case may be my new favourite thing

    Visit to Worthy Farm

    I've never got my head around which roads / lanes are where. My geography on site is just dreadful.

    2019 Stage Predictions

    It's why I never bother. I do think there's some underground game at play where you score points for having a certain number of obscure bands and/or indie darlings in certain slots EDIT: you get bonus points from me for putting Of Monsters And Men in there somewhere

    Glasto chat

    Absolutely nothing, and that's kind of the point! If someone says "I just don't find calling someone a twat funny", my immediate urge is to respond with "shut up twat". Believe me it says more about me than it does about anyone else

    2019 Possibilities (Non-Headliner)

    Probably the same people that think the stone circle has been there as long as Stonehenge
