  1. The main competition for the opening act is bed, which is where half the site will still be
  2. Has anyone mentioned The Lightning Seeds yet? https://lightningseeds.co.uk/march-jollification-the-summer/ Looks like they're active this summer, and they often do Glastonbury when the football's on

    Sleeping At Glasto

    I'm also a lousy sleeper at the best of times. At Glasto I use non-prescription sleeping pills, wax earplugs, aspirin, a blackout tent and an eye mask. That usually gets me 5 or 6 hours of sleep each night which is plenty 🙂

    efests Exit Poll

    As an unreconstructed Blairite, here's what I think were the main problems with Labour's campaign: 1) Half the country wants Brexit, so a second referendum would have put this at serious risk. 2) Corbyn comes across as a terrible leader to anyone outside his rank and file. He also has way too much baggage and no charisma whatsoever. 3) The Left always has credibility issues when it comes to managing the economy, so the uncosted nationalisation programme that nobody asked for and the post-manifesto giveaways (e.g. to Waspi women) exasperated this. People worried that his spending and giveaways would run out of control and it wouldn't be the top 5% paying a bit more tax, it would be the top 50% paying a lot more tax. Either that or we'd face national bankruptcy and austerity in years to come that would dwarf what we've just seen. 4) Whilst the antisemitism issue probably had little direct effect on the way people voted (outside of 1 or 2 north London constituencies), it demonstrated Corbyn's inability to lead and deal with difficult issues. The Left's obsession with Israel is also a massive turnoff.
  5. Time to get out the Roxette boxset
  6. I wouldn't be at all surprised if they release a second edition next year to include highlights from the 2020 festival!
  7. Amazon.com is also now showing a May 2020 release date. Could you cancel your existing order and order from Amazon.co.uk?
  8. I voted yes because they're justifiable as a relatively cheap third headliner if they have to bust the budget to get one/both of the other nights' headliners (like Mumford & Sons were the year the Stones played). But if all three headliners were Foals calibre, it would look weak.
  9. I've been going since the mid-90s, but for several years mrs d and I used to stay off site at a B&B in Glastonbury town - mrs d hates camping so this was the only way we were both going to go. Anyway, in 2016 there were two retired nurses staying at our B&B who'd seen Glasto on the telly and who'd made the decision to go as a bucket list thing. At breakfast on the Friday they were excitedly telling us about all the acts they were looking forward to seeing, but when we saw them the following morning it turned out they hadn't brought wellies or any other suitable footwear, and they hadn't actually made it to any of the stages. Indeed by late Friday morning they'd given up and headed back to the B&B. They spent the rest of the weekend visiting Cheddar Gorge, Wells and other places in the area before heading home.

    2020 headliners

    My educated guess is Elton's in the frame for Glasto, but he's also doing BST, and until that's announced and the tickets are all sold, Glasto are embargoed from mentioning him

    Diana Ross

    Some interesting titbits on Diana Ross's fan page: https://dianarossofficialfanclub.com/2019/10/12/diana-ross-is-set-to-tour-the-uk-in-2020/ "As regards to the Glastonbury concert at the Pyramid Stage on June 28, 2020, what we can say is that she is planning a show based on her UK success that´s why "Chain Reaction", "I´m Still Waiting" and "When You Tell Me That You Love Me" are going to be included in the setlist. Also, two guest stars would perform with her on stage. One would be a established star and a current star would be the other."
