  1. This thread is mental. Judging someone for where they choose to spend their 5 days on the farm seems like the least Glastonbury thing ever. Pre-erected camping isn’t for everyone, fine. Neither is camping in with the masses. I’m firmly in the pre-erected camp (no pun intended) for a number of reasons. There’s always a large group us, 12 people at the very least, arriving from all over the country, at different times. Having our tents already together means we don’t have to worry about trying to save space in a normal campsite for later arrivals. There’s more space, which is nice. It’s quieter, which is vital for the likes of my other half, who sometimes struggles with mental health/anxiety issues and can sometimes needs a quieter space to bail out to. The shower facilities are a godsend as far as I’m concerned. I’ve done festivals without shower, there’s no achievement in being bogging. Really don’t get this bizarre pride some people seem to take in boasting they’ve not showered for 5 days. Freshening yourself up can really kick the hangover/comedown into touch, and with the weather this year it gave some much needed respite from constantly sweating and stinking.

    The collective sigh and meh was only on here tbf. And I was among the sighers. The silent majority were delighted.

    It’s good throwaway indie. Heard Creepin’ Up the Backstairs for the first time I ages the other day. Still a banger.

    Sorry Matt, the mob has spoken!
  7. I’d like to ask and answer one myself, after a discussion in another thread. Can you drink the water out the taps? Yes. All of them. Even the ones at sinks at the long drops. Please don’t stand having a wash at them though. It leaves puddles and it’s pretty inconsiderate when there’s a massive queue behind you.
  8. I dipped in and out during the fallow year just gone, don’t think I ever actually posted. Post semi regularly otherwise. I couldn’t come anywhere near if I didn’t have a ticket, I know @SwedgeAntilles took an extended period of absence last year when we didn’t get our full quota 😕

    It’s suddenly everywhere. Terrible patter as well. Getting dished out by 21 year olds to mean anyone older than them. I doubt most of them ever know what a baby boomer is.

    I’m Not OK, Teenagers, and The Black Parade are bangers.

    Manic Street Preachers aren’t a boomer band 😂 What do you think a boomer is? Someone who happens to be older than you?
