  1. Excellent troll post 8/10. Would rage again. Particularly liked ‘most of them don’t even take drugs’
  2. No that's what I'm saying. They accidentally put in your reg number but type in their postcode correctly. Would that lock you out?
  3. Does this mean that, if someone you've never met who has a reg number similar to yours accidentally puts yours in, you'll be locked out?
  4. Agree with this, it would have been brilliant. I was always a passive Roses fan (in that I really liked their debut album), but saw them twice in Belfast on each of their comeback tours and they are 2 of the best gigs I've ever seen. I was so surprised and totally blown away. On the original comeback tour in 2013, there was a pretty strong headlining trio (Stones, Arctics and Mumfords [who were massive at the time]). Similarly in 2017 you couldn't really see Radiohead, Sheeran or the Foos being bumped for them. RHCP obviously pulled out in 1993 but were arguably the biggest band in the world post Californication. They possibly should have been an alternative to Travis or The Stereophonics in the early 00s
  5. I need to travel over from Ireland. In previous years, I've been happy enough to try for a coach ticket and see where we land, but its too much of a faff as I get older to be honest (particularly as you need to go with whatever time is allocated to you). A general sale ticket allows me to spend as little time travelling as possible, ideally a return flight from Belfast to Bristol and then a short coach journey to the site. In a previous year it was Belfast - Dublin - Leeds - Glastonbury
  6. Re: Elton, there's no doubt that he's big enough to headline one of the nights, however, I wonder if the legend slot would appeal to him for a variety of reasons. 1. It's less work. Bang all the hits out in an hour or so. 2. It generally gets massive media attention (see Kylie), and usually draws the biggest crowd. Nice and handy if you're rounding out a 300 date tour to shift some back catalogue units 3. He strikes me as someone who would like to be called a legend
  7. Ha. Yeah, I told you that I'd texted the picture to my wife and daughter and they loved it. Glad you had a great time.
  8. I spoke to those guys and told them how much I loved their flag at the VW set in the park
  9. There's always going to be substantial litter, that's the cost of having big crowds unfortunately. Over 5 days if every person dropped one piece of litter per day, that's around 1 million pieces of litter that need picked up. People generally try their best, but I can understand if somebody's in the middle of a crowd and they drop an empty drinks cup. Keep in mind that a lot of people aren't always thinking straight at Glastonbury too. It can always be better, but I'm usually impressed with how aware most at Glasto are about looking after the area (certainly in comparison with most large gigs). If everyone was really trashing the place and dropping everything where they stood, the place would be a landfill by the time the first band took to the stage on Friday morning.
  10. Foals were sat beside me on my flight back to Dublin. I wasn't actively trying to eavesdrop but they were very pleased with themselves and there was a fair amount of chat about 'next year', suggesting they've been offered a pretty major slot. Phil Jupitus and Mark Steel in the Park for Idles
  11. No worries mate. Try to be more careful though.
  12. Flying in tomorrow. My very kind friends have gone on ahead with our tent and have it pitched on Bushy Ground. Not doing a lick of work today
  13. Apologies if already asked, but is there a reason that Clashfinder have a Foals bio in the Park 6.15 TBA. Is this what they typically do for a strong rumour or has something slipped through the net?
