    Seen a couple compost loos on Wednesday lunchtime with dirty used condoms in, no doubt from those plugging drugs to bring into the festival. As a whole though, I thought the toilets were pretty good this year. Still baffles me how people can leave a turd on the seat in a long drop though...
  2. Just even the thought of it being hot with the (hopefully) odd downpour here and there is getting me too excited. Been stalking this thread for what feels like an eternity. 3 more sleeps to go!
  3. Taking all 3 this year, dont think you can ever be too prepared! I'd like to think (hope) the ground will be suitable enough for boots.
  4. My reaction was the same as yours when I heard it afterwards! Sounds ridiculous, but apparently there was over 500 causes of exhaustion/heat stroke due to the temperature and it was putting a huge strain on the medical staff who were simply overrun. Like I said though, it was through a reliable source, albeit somewhat unbelievable.
  5. It's what I heard through a friend of a friend who works for an events company which do the health and safety for glasto. It did sound unbelievable yes I agree, but it's a pretty good source. Certainly at this point I wouldn't want to be seen as scaremongering, it's going to be ok and the weather will be lovely!
  6. It was 32 degrees Wednesday 2017 and that was seriously hot. There was a huge cheer when the sun finally set among the horizon. Still, would much prefer baking hot than loads of rain! I heard if the Thursday that year was as hot as Wednesday, then they were potentially going to pull the plug on it. So many had heat exhaustion due to poor preparation for the heat. Let's hope everyone is sensible and wears appropriate clothing and brings plenty of water and sun cream this year!
  7. Two Door Cinema Club have had a prop stolen for Glastonbury. Not sure exactly why someone would want to steal it, but it's a huge shame considering we're only a week away. Hopefully it turns up! https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10156399698252849&id=86185782848
  8. Yes you can, no worries there at all.
  9. You can buy them when you enter the car park at the festival, albeit I believe they are slightly more expensive than normal.
  10. Thanks for your response, will look into getting a goretex boot
  11. Sorry to hijack the thread, but any thoughts on these? Dickies Medway Super Safety hiker https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B003YKQVBK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_T6qbDbXGAVZD8
  12. I stayed overnight in the queue on Tuesday. Arrived 10pm. Was in the zig zag part of the queue overnight and I believe the gates opened around 7.30-7.45 to a rather large cheer!
  13. Pedestrian Gate D opened pretty early. I'm tempted to say 7.30am. Cant quite remember.

    Usually go to Lulu's cafe for a pyramid breakfast twice during the festival. Always find it important to get something down you first thing in the morning. The key is to making that recovery time as short as possible!
  15. Just wondering how many more artists are we expecting to see to be added to this year's lineup?
