    2019 Headliners

    Stipe came out in 2001 http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/story?id=105260&page=1 l had to look up the date as I remember it being met with a 'oh? I thought you'd already done that?' lack of surprise.

    2019 Headliners

    I'd be well up for Bradley Walsh playing the Pyramid. Bang out a few of his show tunes then do a live action version of The Chase. Watch a few space cadets in the crowd shit themselves as Sean or the Beast glower down from the jumbotrons. Eavis taking the low offer everytime. Vintage stuff.

    TRNSMT Festival 2017

    Not convinced myself, as much as I'd love it. Would need a very strong undercard. Killers, Arctics and KOL would suit that 'T, but in Glasgow' vibe. Somebody else mentioned LCD Soundsystem. Not sure they'll ever play a festival in Scotland agin after 28 people watched them at T last year.

    TRNSMT Festival 2017

    Good stuff. Enjoyed the Friday this year. Nice to have a festival in town, hopefully a decent line-up next year

    Radiohead Headlining 2017

    I was impressed with the crowd. Was a few rows back from the front barrier and everyone was really into it. A heartening number of people significantly younger than me (40) included in that. Festival itself was a decent enough set up, drinks prices aside. Living in Glasgow I hope it's done well enough to be on again next year. If I do go next year I'll be smuggling booze in though. £5 for an undrinkable lager? Pffffft.

    Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Finished up with a spare for tonight. Free to good home. Can email if any takers.

    Glasto 2020: Passing the torch?

    Yeah missing the odd one has helped keep enthusiasm up. 2013 was close to being perfect but still after doing a few in a row, come the end I felt a spark was missing. Missed 2014 due to my son being born a few days after the Fest and then absolutely loved 2015. The only way we could get tickets for 2015 was in the resale, Coach Tickets from Taunton on the Thursday. Sacrificing Wednesday sounded horrible but actually worked as we were still bouncing come Sunday evening (we had more energy than the Who TBH). So in 2016 we actually chose Thursday Coach Tickets, going from Bristol this time. Don't get me wrong,both Wednesday nights we've got pretty pissed but a night out somewhere different and an extra night in a hotel bed plus a shower made a big difference again. The other difference was I really got my fitness up and come the Sunday I was still hurtling between stages no problem at all. Missed this year as my wife is heavily pregnant and it was terrible watching on TV as it looked a brilliant year. However that's the test, I missed it horribly, so I'll be chomping at the bit in 2019. Don't get me wrong, had real life not got in the way I'd probably have gone every year but missing out has taught me some lessons.....

    LCD Soundsystem....

    I don't mind the Academy, decent sound. Prefer it to ABC (and the overrated King Tuts) in fact, Though it's no Barrowlands.

    LCD Soundsystem....

    Yeah agreed, I was on the right hand side for both and would say NO had comfortably the bigger crowd.

    LCD Soundsystem....

    It wasn't a huge crowd at Glastonbury but far back enough that from the Stage it will have looked great (see the BBC coverage) especially with every man, woman and child being bang up for it. Living in Scotland I get to discuss the merits or (increasingly) otherwise of TITP but I didnt realise it was that bad these days. That crowd is shocking. It's just a Scottish V Fest these days, full of kids getting Buckfasted after their exams. Given they reduced capacity, offered Buy 1 get 1 free tickets and still didn't sell out, I don't think it's a sustainable business model.

    LCD Soundsystem....

    Whoops. I should have put a winky thing at the end of mine. I'm such a moaning git normally I really felt I was putting myself out there with that positive post malarkey (hang on) ;-)

    LCD Soundsystem....

    Strange post. Coldplay were superb (from TV footage and my mates who went). My mistake trying to make a positive post about a night when the vast majority of Glastonbury got to see a good headliner. There's always one I suppose.

    LCD Soundsystem....

    I get the impression from what's been said on here and what I've watched that it was difficult to go wrong on the Sunday night. Whatever you went to, you were going to miss other great sets but see something great yourself.

    Overheard funnies

    That is brilliant. Crying here.

    LCD Soundsystem....

    I've been to both as I went to Uni in Nottingham (disclaimer-in the late 90's) but now live in Glasgow. I'm gonna cop out and say they're very similar, tatty old places with a great atmosphere. I think Barrowlands does the faded glamour thing better but there's nothing between them. If you like one you'll like the other.
