  1. For the record 2022 will take some beating for me. Had an amazing time all round and I don't care to try and find things to moan about. Life is too short. The only thing I need to remember next time is to check just how hot the Sweet and Sour Chicken is that I will inevitably consume in the early hours of the morning. My mouth still hasn't recovered and the only relief was to drink even more beer (shame). Safe travels.
  2. I've wondered about this and why it feels like it does. I think there is an element of people being more chilled and nice to each other because people are chilled and nice in return (generally) rather than wanting to screw you over at every possible opportunity, sort of a virtuous circle. There is also, for me, the break from reality that should in fact be our reality. The only other place I've been to that made me feel remotely the same was a Buddhist retreat in Scotland but that was a bit lacking in entertainment ๐Ÿ™‚
  3. Thanks and equally hugs returned ๐Ÿ™‚ Despite the circumstances I had the best time and possibly my best Glasto too.
  4. I got this out of context when I answered before. This has been my most emotional Glasto by a long way. I lost my mum a couple of weeks ago so that will have been a contributing factor but I had a paper cry at Kae Tempest on Thursday, again on Friday at Wet Leg as they were so happy and at random other moments the whole weekend. My overriding moment though was leaving a message to mum in the Burning Lotus to say things I should have said a long time ago and I had to go and have a sit down. I don't know who had that idea but it really helped me and I suspect a lot of others too. Mostly though I was grinning from ear to ear like a mad person.
  5. Post Glasto update - I'd go solo again in a heartbeat. Had an amazing time, never once felt lonely or anxious, met a lot of fantastic people. Interestingly, didn't meet any other solo people.
  6. Him: "Mate can you tell me how to get to Arcadia?" Me: "See that fucking great spider with all the lasers and massive flames coming out the top just over there?" Made me chuckle to myself for hours and he did have a great time too.
  7. In no order (I can't split them) Kae Tempest on Thursday, Idles on the Other, Wet Leg. I finally got to see Idles and was blown away.
  8. 137k Wed-Sun and more on Tuesday. Feet shredded, hips and back complaining quite a bit ๐Ÿ™‚
  9. Done loads of exercise and drank a lot of beer. Just need the sleep deprivation now ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†
  10. I'll be in a VW Transporter which is black and bright green.
  11. Thanks everyone for the tips and links - keep them coming ๐Ÿ™‚
  12. Macca with the Bootleg Beetles in the acoustic tent?
  13. This will be the fifth time for me but first time on my Jack Jones. My other half found our last visit too much and I wasn't going to go this time. But, when helping people get tickets I had this overwhelming desire to go and got a ticket. I'm sure in previous years I've seen an EFestivals meet up or something similar - anything like that happening this year? Also any other tips for a solo visit would be most welcome. I'm in camper vans east so will be on site from Tues mid day ish. Cheers.
  14. Had a drink in a city centre pub where I am definitely the oldest punter by approx 30 years (age demographic adjustment). Plus the beer is nearly seven quid a pint so that will make Glasto seem really cheap (man maths). On another note - I read this thread, again.
  15. I'm in the not my bag and will be elsewhere camp. Get the excitement though as clearly a lot of people are in the "someone will have to unchain me from the railings" group.
