  1. Yes it could yet be a dry one, but with this Outlook I'd definitely be recommending wellies in the boot of the car
  2. From perfect weather to a potential shitshow in just a couple of days. Nothing new then.
  3. Depressing isn't it?
  4. Due to the financial hit from cancelling, they should offer existing ticketholders two options: 1. Refund of deposit and no priority for 2021 2. No refund of deposit and priority window for 2021
  5. The official numbers are becoming nonsense as it's now almost impossible to get tested, even if you have all the symptoms

    The poster 2020

    We'll work from home, we'll work from home, we're working, we'll all work from home
  7. I guess we can start importing Chinese doctors who've already had the virus to help us when the shit hits the fan here in 2-3 weeks time
  8. This is the thing. It's not practical to postpone it, and for financial reasons I don't think they'd cancel it unless they're forced to by legislation. Of course many of the acts may choose not to turn up, so the line-up would take a massive hit, but luckily as we always say, Glastonbury's not about the line-up.
  9. He no longer wants any mysterious girls to get close to him
  10. The main competition for the opening act is bed, which is where half the site will still be
  11. 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 spendi
  14. Time to get out the Roxette boxset
  15. I wouldn't be at all surprised if they release a second edition next year to include highlights from the 2020 festival!
  16. Amazon.com is also now showing a May 2020 release date. Could you cancel your existing order and order from Amazon.co.uk?
  17. 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.
  18. 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

    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."
