  1. Saw Richard Bacon on Sunday, sat on the floor with I assume his kids having some food and talking very loudly on the phone to someone called Robbie who was pitching a tv show to him, after his ‘old and white’ comments about Glastonbury I did consider asking what other completely irrelevant comments he had to make about Latitude, but thought better of it. stood next to a guy in the Crèche for the Manics who was the absolute spit of Eric Stoltz, the guy who was Marty Mcfly before Michael J Fox, but can’t for the life of me think why he would be there so I’m assuming it wasn’t actually him. if there was a thread for spotting people who looked incredibly like a famous person but almost definitely weren’t them I’d have hundreds.
  2. Did you opt for print at home tickets? Was it just your campervan ticket that arrived by post? If they are sending them by post that would have been good to know at time of purchase as I’ve no idea where they will send mine as I didn’t give them an address and my billing address is different to my postal address🙄🙄 ticketmaster are useless.
  3. Veganism seems to be like a religion to some, and like most religious people they find it impossible to keep their views to themselves. They, for some reason, feel the need to try to ‘convert’ 🙄🙄 everyone they meet( so tempted to do a pun here). So it’s a little surprising how easy they put their beliefs aside for the sake of a piss up in a field, hey ho. As for the environmental side of veganism it’s vastly over stated, yes anyone with eyes can see we eat far too much meat, and the intensive farming that is needed to fulfil that need is a disaster in the making. However if humans went vegan that would also be an environmental disaster, first off the sheer numbers of animals that would be slaughtered would be astronomical, surely no vegan wants that, plus where do people think all the food will be grown, we certainly won’t be putting land back to rainforest that’s for sure, then there’s the impact on us as a species, there’s a reason we are the most intelligent and powerful creature on the planet, our diet, which created our large brains, we are omnivores, you only have to look at your own teeth to see we have evolved to eat meat, we also don’t have the stomachs or bacteria to digest plant matter and we are intelligent because of the meat we eat. Almost every intelligent animal on the planet eats meat, that’s no coincidence. I wonder how vegans view other animals that eat meat? Or is is just humnans they despise?
  4. Have you heard of a thing called a direct debit? People spread the cost of all sorts of things, why would a festival be any different.
  5. The difference is you set up a direct debit and it just comes out of your account, no need to remember to save, no massive lump sum to find in one go, not a hard concept to grasp surely?
  6. pretty much every festival in the UK offers a payment plan, people who don’t like this for Glastonbury are a strange bunch, can’t for the life of me think why some people wanting to spread the cost is so egregious a notion to people on here. Just a symptom of the sense of entitlement some people on here have towards the festival.🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️
  7. No Lindsey Buckingham no fleetwood Mac as far as I’m concerned. Saw them in 2015 at IOW and they were epic, a proportion of the songs lose their bite without Buckingham either dishing them out or being on the receiving end.
  8. Drugs are also ‘banned’, doesn’t seem to stop people taking them though. Might be a few people on here upset with increased searches for flares uncovering other items.

    Gate C

    Haven’t got the faintest idea, it was whoever was running the gate who were crap.

    Gate C

    Nope it was a clusterfuck, too many stewards standing around doing nothing, or even worse trying to tell people who have just been queuing for an hour to cheer up, whilst stood around doing nothing, it’s one of the downsides to using untrained people for that sort of thing, when things go wrong they have no idea how to sort it. There didn’t actually seem to be anyone in charge. the re entry procedure isn’t fit for purpose and takes too long, it either needs to be changed or the number of lanes increased.

    Gate C

    Gate c should be renamed gate clusterfuck, utter shambles Friday and Sunday, Sunday busiest day of the festival and they had no queuing system running at all. the gate needs a rethink, needs to be widened and capacity increased.
  12. Paul and Jacqui were fantastic as usual, atmosphere was stellar.
  13. Diana Ross was awful, she was awful, the sound was awful, crowd was great, but that’s about it. Pet Shop Boys weren’t bad but not the spectacle I was expecting, maybe it was my mood and I’ll reassess my opinion down the line, who knows. left half way through plant and Krause, just a bit dull. paul McCartney was epic, but would have preferred a 2 hour greatest hits set rather than what we got.
  14. People who walk around the site as if there’s nobody else there piss me off, they just go straight through you if you are in their way, my wife got pushed over by someone in a stewards hi viz just before McCartney, just barging through the crowd not giving a fuck. special people who don’t seem to have to queue like everyone else🙄🙄, anytime there’s a queue, there’s people who think it doesn’t apply to them. And a general life one. Why do people with children suddenly lose to use of their legs and for some reason expect to park nearer to everything? Or jump queues? What was my local Tesco had the lazy parent and child spaces almost in the store, closer than the disabled spaces, and closer to the door than the trolley park, which of course they never return🙄🙄 ’entitlement’ is a modern name for general ignorance, there’s a level of general ignorance in society as a whole, nobody thinks or cares about how their actions affects others, from chair w*nkers at the pyramid, to big groups who think the middle of a walkway is a good place for a chat, to inconsiderate parking, dropping litter, the list is infinite. More than ever we live in an ignorant society.

    TLC Cancelled?

    I’ve been saying for years there’s too many people on site, needs a serious rethink, time to trim the fat and hangers on.
