  1. The roasts are pukka, it’s pricey but you won’t regret it. Roll out of bed at lunch and get an already paid for roast dinner in your face before an afternoon of Diana ross. Scenes.
  2. The smugness of having a ticket in me wants to say there’s an IOW forum for this but I am interested. Considered IOW during the fallow but never materialised
  3. Agree, I thought samula was very well done, spent several hours off me bonce on the balconies above the waterfall. If they are improving this further then fair play because they could have definitely got away with doing the exact same thing and having many happy punters.

    The Strokes?

    Yes but that slot on the other is at the end of June and not right now to coincide with all this new album business. Surely doesn’t affect their summer schedule that they’re playing in London next week.

    The Strokes?

    Think I’m getting excited because of all the festivals they’re announcing in Europe but then thinking back that has happened a fair amount in recent years so why would it be any different this year?

    The Strokes?

    What are the chances of the strikes playing glasto if Kendrick is a done deal which I think it definitely is. How likely are they to play the other. I love them but they are certainly very aware of how many tickets they can sell elsewhere if they’re not headlining.

    What has the world come to, he should be lucky to play croissant neuf on Thursday afternoon in my humble opinion, each to their own

    Queue Times

    I’d take driving to every time usually but we are considering getting the coach just to gain back Sunday night. We’ve left at 6am Monday in the past and losing a Tuesday night in the queue for a Sunday night in shangri la sounds like a good idea right?

    Queue Times

    We got to the traffic on the a37 at about 9ish and moved a few hundred yards in 5 hours, finally made the call to abandon the queue and head through Shepton to the west car parks and drove straight round and on to the site. The second we got out the car it started raining and just got heavier, would definitely stay in the car all night in hindsight and get in the queue about 5/6 or something like that. None of that business whatsoever last year but it’s still a long slog innit.

    Queue Times

    We got there about 10/11pm Tuesday night and that sign was up saying go to gate A. We ignored this and went to D anyway, what’s the point in staying overnight in a queue if you’re not at the right gate for the camping spot you want right? My point is, D wasn’t full by any stretch of imagination so ignore the signs of lies

    Queue Times

    Lots of folk talk about being made to shuffle down through the night but both times I’ve done it we’ve just been sat down for most of the night in once place. I’m still undecided whether it is all really worth it, have flashbacks to my girlfriends soggy face murmuring ‘this is horrible’ in the rain in 2016. There’s obviously pros but I still wonder if it’s worth it EDIT: the over night queue not the girlfriend

    Glastonbury-on-Sea 2020

    it was a shame it wasn’t ready in time for the Wednesday or Thursday but when it opened it was well worth a visit.

    Pet Shop Boys 2020?

    The barrier people are a confusing bunch. There’s obviously some pros to it but it baffles me how anyone can be arsed to sacrifice so much of your day in order to be 10 yards closer than if you rocked up with 20 minutes to go. Admire their commitment though.

    Glastonbury 2020

    If I’m honest I saw a post from Noel about his outdoor shows thinking that he’d just announced them and this was news. I now see that they were announced a month ago. He’s 100% playing tho int he id put my own mum on it

    Noel G suspiciously free for Saturday or Sunday, sub macca?
  19. I think this is the 2010 and then the 2019 map for comparison

    Funny innit, I always saw them both on a par and it only takes attending Glasto a few times myself and hearing of friends who have attended Coachella to realise they are worlds apart. Coachella was on my bucket list and one point and now I don’t think I would waste a weekend there.
  21. Same here, stood and marvelled at icon a couple of times but not my taste musically. Would’ve said the same about Samula but found myself there for a long time, what a venue. The changes through the last decade are extensive if you were to list them and I’d expect the same going forward, haven’t even mentioned the likes of the pier and cinemageddon etc. I personally would like more secret venues but, besides the fact they aren’t good for crowd management, there also may be loads and I’m just shite at finding them. I did manage to find a certain ‘underground’ establishment last year though which was a box ticked if nothing else.
  22. Micro venues that you stumble into not knowing what is behind a door are amazing but the crowd issues just got ridiculous. Exacerbated by the mud in 2016 and something had to be done. You’re spot on about icon. Not my cup of tea if I’m honest but if it keeps a few thousand punters happy and contained so I can freely go elsewhere then everyone wins.
