  1. The Strokes were just not loud enough. You couldn’t hear the vocals much. When Julian said something inbetween songs, you couldn’t even tell what he was talking about. I wasn’t even far back.
  2. All the practical info from yesterday Queues - On the way in very organized, hardly any waiting. Way out was a nightmare. Security check - I read I think on Twitter that they weren’t doing much, yet it turned to be one of the most thorough checks I’ve experienced. They went through pockets of folded jackets, even cases for glasses. But... There’s a policy that you can bring in an unopened water bottle, which I did but nobody checked whether it was actually unopened. So if you really want to get something in... Also there’s a no food policy and I had half my lunch in the pocket of my jacket (I was gonna finish it before getting there but didn’t feel very well, so this was quite unintentional). The lady must have felt it in the pocket but was probably searching only for solid objects. No one asked for an ID. (I’m 22 but look olde though.) Prices - Beer £3 small, £6 pint, Heineken 400ml £5.6, wine 375ml £13, 750ml £25, cider £2.8 small, £5.5 pint, £5.5 packaged 300ml, spirits 50ml £10. Food felt pricy to me but then again I’m spoiled by Eastern Europe’s standards and everything is pricy to me. Merch - I only saw their APE merch and stuff for Chems and The Strokes actually? Not much else. Waste management - Terrible. Plastic everywhere. Staff - Big shoutout honestly. I spent most my day at the barrier of the North stage and inbetween and even during acts they were giving out cups of water. Generally everyone was very nice to deal with. Sound - I’m not an expert but here are my thoughts. Like I said I spent most of the day at the North stage. First off I thought that it was wonderful. Not too loud, clear, nice. Around Courtney Barnett I had to take ear plugs and for Interpol I felt it was too loud actually. Plus the drums felt way too heavy in the mix. Enough was said about The Strokes, but it really was hard to hear.
  3. I was on the right side of the stage and it felt like a singalong in a pub to a couple of The Strokes songs, absolutely not loud enough. Massive #stroxit throughout. If the undercard wasn’t as good, I’d be quite angry at having paid the full price for that.
  4. "However, there was a certain amount of dissatisfaction surrounding the curtailed programme for the Thursday, and we were keen to resolve that." I'm really pleased that they took the feedback into account and went on to do something about it. It's not something you see happen every day! 👏👏👏

    Brexit at Glasto?

    I wonder if this is due to the amount of people who are trying to sign it.
  6. Can we get some love for Lovesong? When I started learning English in primary school, we once listened to Friday I'm In Love in class (perhaps to learn the days of the week...). I remember telling my mum to which she said to my 10-year-old self that of all songs our teachers chose the most overrated one, and that kinda stayed with me to this day.
  7. When she won the feud with Kylie Jenner over the use of just Kylie I think.
  8. Ran out of upvotes, but totally agree!

    I'm from the Czech Republic and #czexit as ridiculous as it is is a thing in some circles. In that sense, May's doing a brilliant job of making sure we'll never ever leave.

    2019 Headliners

    And just sold out Wembley again, and again in a matter of hours. Just to rub it in that venue sizes really don't matter.

    Coming out of the womb And I've been doing just fine...
  13. Be very careful about comparing these numbers. Facebook algorithms are pretty little bastards and a lot plays into how and to whom the posts are going to show, for instance if you past few posts had low reaction rates, your next posts will not perform as well as they would if your past posts didn't flop, etc.. Paid promotions could mess up with its information value as well. The time element is also important to consider as the festival's fan base (in terms of followers) would have likely grown over the year, thus new posts are more likely to be shown to more people, hence more likes. All in all, we can conclude that people are a lot more into The Cure than into Kurt Vile, but we can't directly tell whether people were more excited for Nick Cave or The Cure. And it tells us nothing about the ticket sales. But thanks for the numbers anyway!
  14. They're most likely a festival exclusive. (Edit: which would explain Werchter's rather underwhelming undercard / shortened Thursday as it seems.)
