    I agree, nothing wrong with it and diversity is good but a headliner does need to have that certain "Je ne sais quoi", regardless of genre. Whether Taylor, or anyone else, has that is down to personal taste I suppose.

    I kind of agree, none of these acts would be my first choice of booking but I do think she is more headliner calibre than Taylor, Grande, et al.

    I'm not sure, it's hard to put my finger on what exactly makes an act Glastonbury headliner material in my eyes but it's definitely more than just the amount of awards or sales someone has. There has to be some substance there or some kind of edge (Stormzy being the perfect example, even though his music is not really my cup of tea). Although I do get that is very subjective.

    No reason at all if it's deserved. Madge and Gaga are the only ones I would give headliner status to, but that is personal opinion of course.

    I'm surprised by how open people are to really poppy acts headlining Glastonbury. Not saying they shouldn't, but I thought there would be more resistance. I know the idea is to get more female headliners but is there really such a lack of good female bands/singer songwriters that this is what we are left with? I wonder if those excited about the likes of Ariana or Rhianna headlining would have as much enthusiasm for One Direction or Bieber. I would put them all in the same category but then maybe I am just an old fuddy duddy.

    If the 1975 don't headline I'd have thought it would be in the interest of both them and the festival to hold out and headline 2021 rather than take a lower slot
  7. I know the feeling. Well I saw the chiropractor yesterday. She seems to think I carry around 2kg of my weight extra on my right side than my left, which is very unusual considering I injured my right side, you would think I would carry more weight on the left. She was also able to pinpoint painful areas without me telling her. She is going to write up her findings and I am going back next week to hear the plan of action and decide if I want to proceed. Feel quite encouraged from the initial appointment, but I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much. If nothing else, I'm hoping it will give me the confidence/ammunition to return to the gp again if I get no joy.
  8. I think that's a great idea and could really work well. I camped in Bushy Ground for the first time this year and walked back through SH each night. 3 of the 5 nights I saw casualties on the floor being treated by medics, one in particular I'm still thinking about (he really didn't look in a good way). I didn't see this anywhere else in the festival. Not saying it didn't happen of course, I'm sure it did and maybe I was just unlucky to catch those incidents but I didn't really like the vibe there late night compared to other areas.
  9. That's great glad you saw an improvement, there's hope for me yet! I find footwear really makes a difference too. I'd love to do it in a camper but it's just not in my budget unfortunately I really wish I knew someone who would lend me one, until then its not really an option. Didn't realise so many were suffering with problems like this, maybe we should make this the support/motivation thread for bad backs and other ailments 🤣
  10. I definitely need to do this, I saw lots of people not carrying bags and did wonder how they manage without the essentials (suncream, water, etc), but I could definitely make better use of the lockups with a bit of planning. Thanks, I've never heard of this, I am going to look into it now. I hear mixed reviews about chiropractors, like most things, some people swear by them others say avoid like the plague. What was your experience?

    As a woman, I completely agree, I want to see acts booked on merit. We all know this hasn't been the case in the past and is now (rightly) being addressed, that's good enough for me. It makes no sense to tip the scale too far in the other direction. Also if I was an artist I would want to know I'd been asked to play because I was good enough, not because men were off limits that day.
  12. Kind of given up on the gp/physio route as I've had no success in the past, hence seeing the chiropractor (privately) on Tuesday, but if I get no joy then maybe I will give it another try. I don't go to the doctor much but when I do I seem to get monumentally fobbed off no matter what the problem is, maybe I need to get better at asserting myself. Chair looks good, it's a tough one though isn't it because I already carry enough crap around in my bag all day (definitely want to try and decrease that next year) and a chair is another thing to carry which is no good for the back...I also wish I didn't need a chair, I just want to be normal for my age 😭 but maybe I do need to admit defeat. Thanks, that helps ☺️

    I'd like to see Gaga do it, but Ariana just isn't in the same category for me.
  14. It was this for me too. Cried like a baby watching it back on iplayer. Welled up during about 5 chems tracks, which I wasn't expecting at all!
  15. We saw him too and now I can't get "Wave wave wave wave, wave that fucking flag!" out of my head 🤣
