    so, Stormzy then...?

    I mean, with that kind of average, you could well be quite young 😜

    Tent and camping mattress advice

    I’ve got this and slept on it in G2017. Probably the best sleep I’ve had at a festival. The thing that used to wake me up was cold rising up through the ground though so it helped that I was raised up on it. Also if you get two you can clip them together (to share with your other half of course, not just to be super luxurious). It’s a little bit tricky to get back into the bag with a 5 day hangover but not too bad. I did sleep on it at home recently though (gave my bed to friends) and found it a bit hard and quite small but then I think you’re in a different mindset at home than you are at a festival. I use one of those self inflating matresses by Mountain Equipment on top of the camp bed. I think they retail at about £50 now but I think we paid a bit more when we bought them back in 2009 but it’s seen me through a LOT of festivals and is just really lightweight and dead easy to blow up.

    Wow that’s old 😉😉😉 Yes! I’ll also be at hot chip if that happens. Not familiar with Sylvan Esso? But will add to my list of things to listen to.

    😂. I don’t know whether I’ll ever be able to say I like/love it. Listening to it makes me feel like a little bit of a fraud at my age (and as a consequence also reminds me that I’m getting on a bit) and I can’t help but feel like it isn’t quite for me. That wouldn’t stop me seeing him at Glasto though, but it would stop me going to one of his non festival gigs as I fear I’d feel very out of place.

    Yeah I love Oasis so I’m not trendy at all (but I don’t give a crap).

    If that’s a Jason Donovan pun Woffy, I’m revising my opinion of you.

    George Formby on his ukulele would be better. Caveat: I’ve actually spent all day listening to Stormzy in between meetings and I didn’t dislike it as much as I thought at all.

    2019 Possibilities (Non-Headliner)

    Haha! I used to think she was ok when I was younger. This thread has alerted me to the fact that I was wrong.

    2019 Headliners

    Yes this was my exact thinking. Or “Noel Gallagher is also playing next year” unless they were just typing fast and missed out an “also”

    Friday becomes a Gallagher sandwich.

    Yes me too @the wonderwhy. Neil has put him as a TBC though so I had resigned myself to being wrong.

    Favourite line so far: “it was all calm before Stormzy” 😂 which also kind of sums up this thread as well.

    You’ve inspired me to go and listen to the album 😃.
