  1. 2017 was perfect for me. 2019 was a struggle and I'm usually ok with heat. Had a lot of naps in random patches of shade last year.
  2. I love random stories like this. Guardian long reads really take up a lot of the time I should be working.
  3. Went to see him last night and he did apologise for fucking people about. Also said he was having a bit of a bad time and would let everyone know why soon to explain. You could tell he was genuinely apologetic. Amazing show as well. You definitely can't bracket him in with Ezra.
  4. Yeah I agree. People seem to forget stuff like this pretty fast. Completely different demographic but remember that time Cheryl assaulted a toilet attendant and then went on to become the nations sweetheart. The public are fickle and apparently have selective memory.
  5. This thread is really brightening up my very dull work days at the minute. Thanks for everyone's suggestions so far!
  6. Ah this is great. I've missed them so many times!
  7. I just don’t think you can class anyone who takes to social media to slag off any artist for being ill a true fan. Gigs are never cancelled lightly, think about all the people who are losing out on work too, you don’t see them ranting online. You can’t just imply he’s cancelling gigs due to substance abuse just because he’s a male singer in his 20s. In the end no artist owes anyone their health.
  8. So you’re suggesting he’s not ill, he’s actually a drug addict? Gigs being cancelled sucks for fans but I’m sure he’s not enjoying having to repeatedly let people down at such a vital point in his career. Actual fans would probably be more concerned about his health than losing out on the cost of a train ticket.
  9. Done. A lot more fancy than the usual survey monkey!
  10. Thanks! Going to try and be organised and book something this week. Should have done it sooner but I’m the most indecisive person ever.
  11. Pilates will help massively. As others have said having a strong core will really help and Pilates focuses a lot on that and realigning your body. Try find somewhere you can have a one on one session first to discuss your problems and they'll recommend the best exercises. I've been going regularly for nearly two years now and my body is definitely thankful for it.
  12. I usually do HIIT every morning and Pilates three times a week but was wiped out by a chest infection most of December and now have a viral infection. Wouldn't mind missing the exercise for festivities (pints) but being ill is just shit. Trying to get back into it this week - did a body coach live HIIT on NYD and my thighs are still burning.
  13. Hello Second day back at work of 2020 and already skiving on the forum... We usually drive down from the North East on the Tuesday and stay over somewhere within half an hour (ish) drive. Stayed in Temple cloud last year and ended up with the longest walk through the CV fields after being parked in blue 10 or something awful like that. The year before we stayed in Hallatrow which meant we drove from exactly the same direction and ended up in purple parking so I guess it's luck of the draw. Anyone recommend somewhere good to stay? If it helps me avoid blue parking that's added bonus p
  14. Not sure why you bothered going to Brixton if you don't seem to be a fan? I've not heard anyone praise his covers over his own music, covers are always an unexpected bonus at a gig so go down well. He's clearly a very talented songwriter and in my experience the crowds know all of own his songs word for word.
  15. I saw him in 2016 in a room with about six other people and he’d just recovered from a pretty serious condition which he never brings up as an excuse or talks about when asked in interviews. His management and doctors will have to be extra cautious whenever he’s slightly ill. I had tickets for Dublin on Monday and I’m obviously gutted but hey everyone gets sick and it’s Christmas so let’s not be dicks about it. I hope he gets to play the farm this year because he really does deserve it.

    You NEVER stop praying for good weather. EVER!
  17. Thanks for all the recommendations @squirrelarmy @Divein @maelzoid! I was wondering what the Coleman ones were like haven't seen them mentioned as much as the Quechua’s. Anything will be better than the oven we created this year, I think the only thing that saved us was most tents around us were double the height of ours so we were saved from the sun a bit longer. Had some lovely naps in the green fields in the shade this year though. @Charm I took actually bought space blankets and left them at home! I also read some people complaining about the constant rustling noise so didn't want to
  18. We were surrounded by these this year was a really good way of finding our tent. The boyfriend wants a blackout one after the heat this year any recommendations welcome!
  19. My friend got smoothly through at 9:03 and I had a confirmation email at 9:08. Carried on trying for friends and had the holding page but nothing else until sold out. Barely anyone else my boyfriend and I know was lucky. Like most people I'll be trying in the resale for friends in April.
  20. Good luck everyone! Just woke up to torrential rain so hoping this reminds people of the muddy hell they could face if they try for tickets ??
  21. Some lads I got tickets for last year sent me some extra cash along with their deposits for me to have a celebratory beer which was lovely because I would never have expected anything. I was buzzing enough with the feeling of being successful!
  22. You must have the patience of a saint! I remember roping in my family about 8 years ago and it still haunts me. Will definitely be scouting for a few people to get involved last minute though. Thank you ☺️
  23. Drive home from work to help host the family's annual coffee morning. Happily or miserably shoving cake in my mouth until I feel sick. But also using the day to remember some amazing people we’ve lost and raise some cash for Macmillan.
  24. Ha I might just...depending on how Sunday goes. I have a feeling if she didn’t get wv she’d just give up her ticket which is a bonus for someone who’d make the most of it shower or no shower.
