    Found some time to take a break and cook/eat, watching Kendrick now. 

    First of all, King Kunta is an awesome song and the energy and crowd were superior to Billie's performance in all honesty and I thought she'd done a half-decent job as well.

    Buuuuut, I just think he is severely overrated - don't shoot me, please. I desperately want to like him. I love hip-hip; Tribe Called Quest, RTJ, De La Soul, Jurassic 5, Eminem, Blackalicious, Biggie Smalls, Wu-Tang..., but I just don't like 95% of Kendrick's music, it all sounds so moany, too many references to bitches and motherfuckers... too many contrasting sounds... maybe it's too jazzy for my liking, too abstract...

    Help me?!

    Anyway, it looked fabulous for the people were actually there, they looked like they were having the time of their damn lives. Great end to the festival for the Pyramid.

    PS - I also absolutely hate the froggy voice he does sometimes, sounds like a cartoon character.

     

    I'm a massive hip hop head and have never been able to get into Kendrick, for some of the reasons you mentioned above. I also find his rapping/voice a little bit jarring at times.

    But enjoyed his performance last night. Anyway, you don't need to like everyone!

    I love Glastonbury but the queues/crowd issues were something else this year. 75% of the time I couldn’t get a drink, couldn’t get any food, couldn’t get to a toilet, couldn’t get to see the band I wanted to! It was a joke… it felt so much busier this year than other years. Like many pp have said, it felt dangerous at some points. Half the time I just couldn’t be arsed to keep fighting my way through everything and just sacked off my plans and went elsewhere. 
     

    The crowd seemed much more edgy too, less people there with good intentions wanting to have a good time. So many people pushing in everywhere, no respect for anyone around them. I went to Lost Horizons (a really chill, clothing optional, hippy place!) and there were groups of youths in their little caps and man bags in there pushing in front of everyone for the showers. Total piss take. It’s definitely attracting the wrong type of festival-goer these days, sadly. 

    Is this a sign of the times? In my experience a lot of people are just acting much more like self centred pricks these days and seem to have forgotten tyhat their actions impact those around them as well.

    Not sure the God bothering goes down quite so well with British crowds as it does in the US!

     

    Yeah never does, not sure how they don't realise this now....

    Tried the Kendick stuff but back on PSB.  Not really getting the love for it    stage setup is boring and it's just constant sweary stuff.

    Stage looks pretty awesome to me and the choreography is great.

    Seems to be a large amount of people with babies/very young children in bulky prams/pushchairs. Each to their own and all that, but personally I always left mine with the grandparents until he was old enough to get something out of it.

    I don't really understand the appeal of bringing a child that young to a festival like Glastonbury.

    I know a lot of the problems at football this season are due to the rise in people doing a load of coke. Could that be a contributing factor to a change in crowd behaviour at Glastonbury too?

    People are on literally everything at glasto. I doubt this is the issue.

    I was partly joking because of all the Foals should headline stuff. For me I can't think of anything more dull than watching Foals but if we were all the same it would be dull as fuck.

    Little Simz killing it for me.

    That's fine, a band or act killing it in one stage - doesn't mean they should headline automatic...

    Ive seen bands in clubs if ,500 people kill it. But they couldn't hold an audience of 100k.

    Don’t get the Billie bashing. It’s not for me but she is undoubtably huge and big enough to headline. If you don’t like it you head to one of the 100 or so other stages. It’s that simple isn’t it??

    Yeah very strange tbh, people waste a huge amount of energy on who should or shouldn't be headlining ....

    I wonder how the BBC are going to try and big this up?

     

    Mining half the songs.

    Some of the cringiest crowd work I've seen. I know she's probably not done as much live work as she's wanted but crikey.

     

    It also highlights a big issue with the streaming era pop she sort of belongs too. It's meant to background music, Glasto are going to have to put more effort into working out who'll be good live. Sam Fender was way better than this.

     

    You sound like a right myserbable bastsard.

    Gonna be hard to top that one - just an absolute blast from start to finish. 

    If they had put them on an inside tent during the evening the roof would have come off.

    Great to see a couple of Aussie kids absolutely smahsing out the 90s vibe to a tee.

    Saw them play in Bristol recently and the live performances are something special. There's no break between tunes either.

  11. Confidence Man just bring so much energy, the transitions from one song straight into another are great. 

    It's not the most complex of music but it's fun as hell. Their album is one of the highlights for me this year.

    Anyone cracking open the beers yet? Just opened the first of many, reckon I'll be hammered by about 8pm!!! 🤪

    yeah tucking into a Thatchers slushiem, need to get the train into bloody London shortly though....

    I think the inflation vs band fee thing might get a bit interesting for Glastonbury over the next couple of years. They're notoriously low payers (I've seen from friends who've booked the disparity of what they get vs any other festival – it's quite something), and at some point touring for small acts in particular is going to get so tight that they'll be wondering if taking that loss is even worth it. The "great exposure!!!" thing is fine until you're faced with one gig losing you hundreds, even thousands of pounds.

    Greentea Peng had to cancel her tour earlier this year for cost reasons, so it's already happening and I wouldn't even call her 'small'...

    Think this may be my last. Personally, this year’s line up is the worst I’ve experienced. Add in another bad experience with having coach tickets and the general mob of Instagram/bucket listers that don’t seem to understand the ethos of the festival, and I’m definitely struggling to enjoy it this time.
     

    I saw 4 lads pissing against a fence on Wednesday afternoon, less than 20m to the nearest toilets. I called them out on it and received abuse.

    Maybe I’m just having some bad luck so far. Williams Green yesterday was a joke, I’ve never seen it that bad. In fact, it just seems way more crowded this time. Has capacity gone up? 

    I think the lineup is extremely strong, so am surprised by this. It's very deep and there would be clashes for me everyday.

    In terms of the crowd, I am seeing a lot of 'social media' people putting up posts just so they can be seen to be there.

    I'm about 34 now, but I have noticed there seems to be a lot of 'idiots' in the younger generation coming through - so your 18-23 year old range...
