  1. Taunton Racecourse and B & W might be:
  2. Arcade Fire 2007 - Having blagged my mates that it would be the set of the weekend, I begrudgingly followed them when they left half way through to go see Kasabian (I think) as it was boring. Oasis 2004 - Not bad as such, musically it was there but the attitude wasn't, a workman like performance that should have been awesome. The Killers 2007 - Not the band's fault, we just couldn't hear 'em. Arctic Monkeys 2007 - They were not a headline band at this time, I'm sure I remember Alex asking "Glastonbury, are you still with us?" or something like it, really underwhelming... don't believe the hype! Watching from home, Kanye's set seemed beyond rubbish, especially when he appeared to be hanging on for dear life in the cherry picker, started off pretty good though.
  3. Thursday night 2007, techs using snippets of Faithless to soundcheck the new Park Stage.
  4. Re. Noise limit, the council were concerned about the cumulative volume (festival +PP) and GFEL argued that as this event would only happen when the others didn't then they would be down on their 'allowance' if they pushed for lower volume for the Equinox do (I think).
  5. Wolf Alice are ferkin' ace!! (Kicks himself for not paying more attention at the Pilton Party)
  6. Take the end off of the link address, straight in
  7. Aye, camped at the Pilton Party... froze me nuts off!
  8. I know, I've had one... the quoted post was a year old?
  9. I think some people may fear being an unnecessary burden when the NHS is under pressure.
  10. I was there, having gone under a fence that afternoon, I was a mess it was awesome. Memories are vague because I was a Glasto virgin and the whole thing was way beyond my expectations. My mate got sketchy in the dance tent earlier so we found ourselves at the main stage by accident (no programme, map or owt) then I got my own sketch on because there was a fight just in front of us (not sure if before or during) and in my addled state I became convinced it was because somebody was there without a ticket. I loved the set; I only knew Common People from the radio but it lead to a long time love of Pulp as a band. About all I've got to say really, apart from one more thing... the singalong for Common People gave me a buzz that I've been trying to repeat ever since leading to loads of gigs and festys, my first proper (non-pub) gig was Pink Floyd the year before which was amazing but a world away from that show so in that respect it is not unreasonable to say that Pulp at Glasto in 95 literally changed my life!
  11. I'm relieved, the thought of a "covid secure" event filled me with absolute dread... All or nothing! Roll on 2022
  12. No surprise, fingers crossed for a situation where we can at least party in June even if it's just with friends and family!
  13. https://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/a-statement-from-§/
  14. While it's not inconceivable that, with some restrictions, Glastonbury could go ahead, I think, well hope really, that moves to open up are tentative with time taken to observe possible affects. This strikes me as the logical way forward and the reason that I don't think the festival (as we know it) will take place. Caveat: The government are shocking so logic may not apply.
  15. 0% Get ready for Glasthomebury 2, hopefully with enough freedom to actually have a proper party!
  16. The Pilton Party is always awesome, only done one Extravaganza (Madness + Steve Harley) and that was awesome as well, apart from the queue for the bogs.
  17. Aye, the Extravaganza's a tidy little do 'n all!
  18. Something may happen this year but I'm certain it won't be what people have bought tickets for, on that basis, I reckon the tickets will roll over to the next one which I really, really, hope is 2022 (rather than 2023 or never).
  19. Merry Christmas everyone, we're on the home straight now!
  20. Aye, no-brainer I reckon... fingers crossed!
