  1. As posted on the other festivals forum, sad to say the latest update from Bearded Theory doesn't read like the September festival is likely to go ahead, though that hasn't been 100% decided yet. https://beardedtheory.co.uk/covid-19-update-june-30th-2020/
  2. After checking the .com had gone and saw the other domains were still available, I *was* tempted but, apart from lots of pictures of peoples home setups (that sort of thing seems to go better on social media) I ran out of justification for getting one.
  3. I wonder if "Glasthomebury" is going to become a yearly thing then? Someone must think so, they bought the domain a few days ago and are now offering it for sale (I assume hoping to make a profit). http://glasthomebury.com (Disclaimer: It's nothing to do with me.)
  4. Similar here. Kind of end-of-festival feeling going on. The wind tore one of the gazebo velcro fastenings off and blew it from its original position despite being pegged down. The projector screen got wet and the ribbon tower lost its top. Packing some of it up now, and not going to be sleeping in the van tonight. Iplayer indoors tonight!
  5. Exactly this ๐Ÿ‘†
  6. Following Blutarsky's added realism with weather, we got our own this morning. Rain drumming on the camper roof and opened the door to flooding, just to add that extra touch of something to Glasthomebury
  7. ๐Ÿ˜’ Thats a shame. I was looking forward to you describing your pyramid hat to the waiting world.๐Ÿ™‚
  8. That's great, worth the effort you put into it. I think having a fair amount of the BBC Glastonbury output to choose from has helped as well.
  9. 2005 Jazzworld Stage, Alabama 3. I think. They the first set I remember we probably intended to go and see, but being the first Glastonbury we had wondered around lost and would have passed a number of different bands before that, without being able to recall who they were. I think I was just to in awe of the everything around me and the extent of the flooding.
  10. Put the lights out last night. LED strings around the gazebo and some big (too big really) colour change lights on the ribbon tower and Glastonbury sign. Lounged in front of the screen, had a few ciders and watched the beeb pop up glasto channel output for a few hours.It was quite enjoyable and mellow. Adding the lights definitely added something extra to the back garden event. (Not very good quality Video here ). We all slept in the van, which was ridiculously hot so very little sleep was had. Was it worth it? Dunno. I suspect the building part was just about keeping me busy as we came up to what would have been Glastonbury week and in that succeeded. It's no substitute for being at the farm though ๐Ÿ™‚.
  11. Thanks for posting that. Very interesting read. Gives some hope that it can happen next year one way or the other.
  12. Apart from lights for tonight I think I'm as finished as its going to be. Oxfam hat box, solar powered whirly thing (Green Fields ish), campervan (CV West RIP), wind blown Ribbon Tower, sons paddling pool (Kidz field/lost horizon depending on your viewpoint), glasto type bin, signpost, sign etc. Not shown - cider in a bearded theory mug for reasons I haven't yet worked out.
  13. Joined at 6:30 but with audio and video off as I was on bathing son duty. After I got him dried, dressed, and in front of the tv i de-lurked for about 10 minutes, said nothing and kept getting called on dad duties so gave it up as a bad job and had to leave. Nice to put some faces to names, even if you didnโ€™t know I was there most of the time.
