eFestivals is fund-raising

eFestivals has been here 20 years supporting festivals and festival goers. Without your support it will not continue as it has been.
Advertising used to pay the bills but advertising revenues are much less than they were.

Festivals: if you'd like us to continue to promote your event to our 650,000 monthly readers you'll need to give a helping hand.
Festival-Goers: if every visitor in just one day donated just £2, that would provide funding for a whole year.

You can donate or sign up for 'gold' (ad-free) membership, or you can contact the editor.

  1. I enjoyed this - about music New York in 2000s It's not narrated or written as a book in the traditional sense, just lots of contributions and stories compiled from interviews with the people involved in that scene, which gives a nice perspective on it - contributions from James Murphy, The Strokes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and loads of others. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Meet-Me-Bathroom-Rebirth-2001-2011/dp/057133797X/ref=asc_df_057133797X/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=310842836591&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=16141206222988937550&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9045542&hvtargid=aud-548500765412:pla-323003920023&psc=1&th=1&psc=1

    The Beat Hotel

    I’ve never really been to the beat hotel much but from views here sounds pretty good. I camp on the other side so it’s always seemed a bit out the way Is there a best time to go when it’s not overly rammed or is it purely dependent on who’s DJing? Would likely go weds/thurs or after headliners
  3. Gave this a listen off the back of that description. Enjoying so far

    Guest Appearances

    She’s the one that I’ve been waiting for - finally settled that question
  5. Sigur Ros headlining the John peel (2016?) was absolutely magic A couple of brilliant park ‘secret’ sets, pulp in 2011 and thom Yorke/Jonny Greenwood in 2010 - the karma police singalong was one of my best Glastonbury moments Fat white family being an appropriately chaotic alternative to Lionel Ritchie in 2015 Finally the stones. I was actually not enjoying this at all, and about 45 mins in I was considering leaving to go and see public enemy. In the end stuck around, and the last about an hour was unbelievable, “Miss you” was the turning point and from then on it was hit after hit and was amazing Missed off Chic in 2017 which was probably about as much fun as someone can possibly have, but there we go
  6. Yeah I’ll concede that there’s an element of that. Maybe not as much difference in that particular activity as there is in some of the other stuff. Or who knows, maybe this is a massive difference? Wouldn’t know as I’ve never been but each to their own and I’m sure some people will have a great time with the singalongs etc
  7. Yeah I guess so. But I think its atmosphere in itself is unique - and that there's genuinely experiences that you wouldn't get in other places I don't think it's solely the atmosphere either - the layout of the site, the bookings of the stages, the thought put into the art/design of the place etc plus a milion other reasons, culminates in something that means you get unique experiences
  8. Yeah but when I sit up by myself to watch it from my flat in Birmingham it’s not quite the same
  9. Sitting up to see the sun rise at the stone circle everything about the south east corner is completely unique to glastonbury stumbling across brilliant bands in tents you didn’t know existed having the green fields open selling tea with live music on at 5am to see the night in Even the sets you see at Glastonbury from the bigger acts are often very different in feel to how it would be say seeing them at their own show, or even at another festival. I guess I’m trying to say all the things that are unique about Glastonbury are the reason why we all love it
  10. I think I know 10 of them for sure. Could have a few educated guesses at some of the others
  11. So many of things I love about Glastonbury couldn't happen anywhere else.

    day and stage

    I’d go mid-other or slightly later in the evening JP if I were to guess. She did the park last time (I think?) so I reckon that’s less likely no clue on day
  13. I went up to that rabbit hole one too - had a game off ping pong but I was so out of it I could barely see the ball. I think there was a hottub in there too if i recall correctly
  14. Are the heritage acts the cure, Liam Gallagher, chemical brothers etc??
  15. Sign of the times I guess - there’s only so many 60s/70s acts still kicking around and still touring
