    What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    Have you tried Moseley Folk Fest Mr Stick? I think it’s a great little fest. No camping as it’s in the middle of Brum but I believe you are in the area.
  2. Related... what’s the deal with pre-sales now? A while back they were by-and-large for fan club members only, and said fan club required you to pay subscriptions. GnR still do this I think, U2 did, maybe still do, not sure. Now it seems every gig has a pre sale and anybody can access them. May as well just start the general sale 2 days earlier. I myself am guilty of getting e-mail notifications for a pre sale, signing up there and then for a newsletter to ignore and getting the tix. Hang on, just answered my own question there, to spam people...

    Only if I were sober enough to remember. Most of Glastonbury does not fit that bill 🤣

    Nailed it..... Peter Gabriel for legends slot 😁
  7. I remember queuing overnight in a alley behind Birmingham Odeon for Simple Minds tickets (it was that three weeks in the 80s when they were a big deal) It was quite fun really, there were loads of people and it turned into quite a party. Ah well.... times change.

    don't mess with the badgers

    There was a badger in my garden a few weeks back. Edge of town. Big fella he was, could have done with a wash and blow dry.

    Wish I could go to Besutiful Days! No festivals for me this year, had a one-dayer in March which was good but way too commercialised. They simply don’t do good festivals here in NZ. The live music scene is probably the thing I miss most about UK.

    Bob Dylan just announced start of a new world tour for Asia, Australia and NZ, July and August this year. Could still be going on into 2019, might there be a place for him on the farm? Legends? Top of bill on West Holts? Top/near top of bill on Pyramid?

    I’ve been to the states many times, never seen a band in a bar or restaurant except on Paddy’s day. Back on topic, I dun gone got me a QOTSA ticket for later this year. This made me happy 😁

    Plastic Bottle Ban?

    Just read that wet wipes could be set for a phase out too (single use, contain plastic ). Seems festivals could get even smellier in future. oh I miss proper glasto gossip at this time of year
