  1. 21/06/17 - I woke up this morning fully packed but completely ticketless. I hadn't been able to get into any volunteering gigs, no secret sales and the very obvious scam workers ticket I paid £40 turned out to be a very obvious scam. But yet, I still had hope. At 11am I got a phone call off one of the volunteering organisations I had signed up for, they had some drop outs so would I be willing to pay my deposit and make my way down to the site? Abso-bloody-lutely. A quick phone call to explain to Mrs Kinky that I won't be home when she gets back from work and a nauseatingly expensive train ticket later, I was finally on my way to Glastonbury '17. It was the most stressful build up I've had. Aside from an unshakeable belief that I'd find a way there, at no point did it look like I was going to Glastonbury so by all account, I was quite unbearable to be around. All worth it though, it was probably the best Glastonbury I've had, maybe even because of the madness I had to go through to get there!
  2. Excellent. related the the previous question, which Wu Tang members were there for the headline set?
  3. Janelle Monae, Jon Hopkins and The Wu Tang Clan!
  4. First time back here in a few months. With everything going on, I didn't really need the added heartbreak of being reminded of Glastonbury not happening, especially with the weather reports being pretty much perfect. Though one of my friends was hospitalised with suspected sepsis over the weekend, he's currently stable but on morphine and fluids. I can't help but feel if Glastonbury was still going ahead, he would discharge himself and still go. He probably wouldn't tell his girlfriend either and bribe the nurses to maintain the ruse. So I guess it's a good thing its not on this year? he already has respiratory issues so I would have spent the entire weekend stressing about his health. Looking on the positive side, we are now 52 weeks away from the gates opening, I've saved a fair few pounds from not going on holiday/glasto and at least not doing any exercise the last 12 weeks won't be my downfall (this year!). Hope you are all doing well!
  5. I'm feeling ok about Glastonbury, insofar I haven't really had a chance to think about it. It's everything else that is a bit more difficult. Work is getting more challenging, we're starting to run low on PPE, there's so much staff sickness and the effects of the lockdown on the service user's mental health is increasing. Trying to explain to a person with a learning disability or a mental health condition why they can't go out or visit their parents is so difficult and it isn't going to get any easier as times go on. I honestly do not know what I'm going to do if/when the virus gets into work. We have 8 services all next door to each other with about 50 residents in total, about half a dozen of them are in the high risk health category. So how do I feel? Scared of whats to come to be honest. All I do know is, the party in 2021 is going to be like nothing we've ever seen before.
  6. What I've maintained from the start is that this crisis will expose the best and worst of us for who we are, as well as show the country just who adds value to the United Kingdom. It's not the billionaires, the corporations, the CEOs or 'wealth creators'. its the people who keep this country running on a daily basis, who care for our loved ones, who put others before themselves. My only hope is that we will all remember this for many years
  7. I feel for everyone who hasn't got a ticket but as others have said, I'd imagine there will be a lot more going into the pot compared to other years so the dream is still alive for you. Guess I best get myself over to the 2021 headliners thread
  8. Love it! though I'm going to have to cheat and use acts from different stages Friday Sub - Chic (West Holts 2013) - I know it's technically a headliner set elsewhere but how better to get the party started? Friday Headliner - Stevie Wonder Saturday Sub - The XX (Pyramid 2017) Saturday Headliner - The Rolling Stones Sunday Legend - Dolly Parton Sunday Sub - LCD Soundsystem (Other stage, 2016) Sunday Headliner - Coldplay (Pyramid 2016)
  9. The only logical solution to this is to have a double glastonbury next year with the gates opening 5 days earlier. I will not be taking any further questions on this matter.
  10. Chic in 2013 was pretty damn special. In all my years, that set had the best party atmosphere and banger after banger after banger. There's nothing quite like being with your festival family watching a band absolutely nail it from start to finish. Though my greatest moment happened a year later. In 2014 at arcadia in the day for Craig Charles always stands out for me. It had been raining on and off all day and spirits were dampened somewhat but everyone was trying their best to make the most of it. Throughout his set there was this little patch of blue sky that was edging towards us, taunting us all with a promise of sun and respite from the rain. Craig had just started heard it through the grapevine, the bass line intro looping away. Anticipation was building in the crowd, craving the release of the of the song while that tiny bit of blue sky crept towards the spider. There are moments that stick with you, that are so perfect you just want to bottle them up and when that patch of blue sky made it over the spider, bathing us in sunshine for the first time and Marvin Gaye's voice was pouring honey down our ears, it was jubilance in its most unadulterated form. Ponchos went down, smiles went up. A limbo competition appeared. People were dancing in pure, unrestrained joy. I've had many a glastonbury, with many a special moment yet that is the one that is always at the forefront of my mind.
  11. I would be shocked if this conversation hasn't taken place at a very high level with the decision to prioritise the health of the economy over the health of the nation. More than likely. Most industries are taking massive hits right now (Aside from toilet paper and hand gel manufacturers)
  12. half way there I guess. Looks like I've got to shout more at the sky then.
  13. I told the sky yesterday evening that it can just fuck off with heavy rain for the next 4 months. I think it listened as I can see nothing but blue skies at the moment.
  14. It's just optics. The UK being a massive travel hub really makes the European flight ban quite silly but at least he can still golf, right?
