    Not as good for me personally as last year’s. Will skip.

    2017 - How was it for you?

    I have been so busy since getting home that I am only catching up on forum-reading now. This was my first time at End Of The Road. I did stewarding, which I enjoyed. Friday had most of my must-sees and I managed to swap a shift so that I could see everything on the Friday. Here is my review: http://www.therockclubuk.com/index.php/festival-reviews/2937-end-of-the-road-festival-larmer-tree-gardens-31-august-3-september-2017

    I have heard that too, and that Peter Gabriel foots that bill. Not sure if this is true. I have been three times. Cambridge Folk Festival is my favourite festival, so when they clash I skip Womad. Next year they will be on subsequent weekends, so can go to both!

    Who should reform?

    I am an Abba fan and I don't want them to ever reform. Let the memory remain as it is. I think they are smart enough to know that themselves. I want Bellowhead to reform - just not yet. In about five or six year's time.

    The War on Drugs

    That is an excellent track. On the topic of U2 and the War On Drugs.... Article on WOD in the current issue of Uncut. Adam Granduciel finds himself at a dinner party at Jimmy Iovine's (as you do). Paul McCartney is about to leave when Bono goes up to McCartney to point out Granduciel: "You see that guy? He made one of the best records of the year". I like the War On Drugs. Saw them at the Pyramid. They are Waterboys fans too.

    First festival advice, not Glastonbury

    Plastic bags, toilet paper, Wellingtons, earplugs.

    The best place to **** was ****

    The best place to have a sit down meal was the Hare Krishna tent. I am out of likes, but loved @VolumetricFox 's video!

    Worthy View Review

    Only seeing @idb's photos now. Quite an eye-opener. From my vantage point (Hitchin Hill) it looks like a fancy place way up on the hill, but as per the photos it is the camping equivalent of a fairly dreary housing estate...

    V Festival banning stage times?

    This makes me thinks of these silly questionnaires that you often get after attending a festivaI, where they are trying to find out how they can get more money out of you in the future. I generally do fill them in because I wouldn't mind winning a ticket to the following year's event, and I do like to give feedback on how disappointing sound overspill is, but these surveys are always so money-centered. I go purely for the music and can only just about afford the festivals I attend, so am totally not interested in who sponsors the drinks, whether there are fancy camping and posh loo options, phone charging fascilities or any such-like. Glastonbury is great in that respect. You can bring your own food and drink, the program is free and you don't get into trouble for printing a Clashfinder....
