    If you’re looking at the same forecast as me (BBC), then it rates the chances of rain at 50% (at its worst). Let’s keep our finger crossed! Setting off at 11 - little boy is very excited about going to to his first festival. He stood up in the front of his class yesterday and told the teacher and his friends all about it. This ruining our plans of pulling a sickie for him for the last 2 days of term

    Forecast has gone a bit downhill for the Friday now, unfortunately. Taking my 5 year-old for the first two days as his first festival experience! Hopefully it won’t turn into a deluge. Looking forward to some dance tent action on the Friday night (once child has departed) - Altern 8 usually does an Old Skool Rave set followed by Darren Emerson. Will probably watch Sleeper and The Coral with the boy in the evening. Looking forward to Mik Artistik/ FLC/ Sleaford Mods/ Robert Plant/ Dub Pistols/ Jimmy Cliff on the other days. Haven’t done as much investigative work on the undercard as I normally do for festivals. Any other tips? Not really a fan of punk, so anything other than this would be appreciated!

    Were you planning on seeing anyone on the Saturday night?

    Sounds pretty terminal!

    Beverley Folk Festival 2018

    Think the festival is a quite a big thing in folk circles. It used to be held at a few venues around the town, with the main stage/ camping at the leisure centre. A few years ago it expanded and moved to the racecourse, where all the stages and campsites were situated.

    Have just seen on Twitter that the festival has been cancelled as the main source of finance has collapsed, or summat. No refunds for those who have bought tickets! I’m not a folkie, but this festival is about 1/2 a mile from my door. Seems a very sad state of affairs.

    Looks like a good selection! Do you know what are the bar queues like? And do they sell out of ales/ ciders quickly? Thinking of minimising my take-in...

    Very happy with this booking - will be spending my Friday night in Magical Sounds

    Definitely seeing Robbie Plant and will probably watch Jimmy Cliff, so think Friday will be the night I venture elsewhere. Altern-8 here we come!

    Line up prediction game 2018

    Glastonbury released the 2016 site map at 9.30 on a Saturday night, from memory. I opened a bottle of wine to celebrate.

    Glastonbury evolves

    With regards to tents being open on the Wednesday: I managed to sit in a slither of shade at Stonebridge which was a welcome relief...was an extremely hot day and having 3 beers by midday wasn’t a great decision. With regards to a variety of after hours music: I head “Too Funky” by George Michael being played at Strummerville at 2am one morning. What more do you want?

    I think they said it was a “UK Festival Exclusive” rather than a completely exclusive UK live date... Still no idea who it is though! My friend is convinced it’s The Streets...however they are probably too big, don’t really fit in the music style and have already sold out their live dates in April. I didn’t convey this to her though, because she seems really excited by the prospect.

    Yep, very happy with the announcement! Can’t help but think it’s a bit of a coup for BT

    Wasn’t expecting that!

    Gah... Any ideas for the 2 headliners?
