    I'd re-do Saturday. None of my friends ended up meeting me for Macca, so I would have just gone and been down nearer the front - would maybe have had a better chance of actually seeing the man himself, and Bruce. Also, I would have made better food choices.
  2. According to setlist.fm - hardly at all, at least in recent years. I'd seen it was in his Milan setlist from a few days before so was hoping for it but was still super psyched when it started. I was next to the disability access area barrier and just turned around to see my friend in there and she was pointing at me as I was bouncing around with glee. I was the only person seemingly around me who knew the lyrics to it but damn I had a good time.
  3. Funnily enough I did see some by the toilets, but only post-Macca. They were pointing some girls in the direction of the loos "they're just right there, under the sign" and I think trying to dissuade guys from pissing on the hedge literally opposite the urinals.. Didn't seem to be about crowd control so much as the "don't see on the land" rule.
  4. What I'm taking from this picture is that I did not appreciate just how busy my outfit was from the back, and I love it. Also, loved the crumble. Rhubarb and ice cream - also 10/10.
  5. For me, I guess it's kind of like a snowballing effect. The more I attend - the more happy memories are banked (there are no bad ones - thankfully - to counteract this in any way) - the more magic it gets. On Thursday morning last week I got up early and set off for a wander around the whole site. Before I really got going, I bought a cup of tea and just sat in the Pyramid field looking at the stage. I just imagined what it was going to be like in a few days, "Na na na na na na na-ing" in that same place.. and it brought happy tears to my eyes. Because I knew that more magic moments were about to happen in that field. And all over the site. And I didn't know what they were yet, but I knew they were coming. And they did. And now they're in the memory bank. And so the self-fulfilling magic prophecy rolls on. So the next time I'm sat in that field, I'll remember the last time, and the time before that, and imagine the time to come, and the time after that..
  6. Lana 👏 Del 👏 Rey 👏 I'm still not over what should have been in 2020, and my soul will not be at rest until it is done.
  7. This isn't new information, but I was plesantly reminded of it this year - the kindest long-drops on site for the senses are those right by the Acoustic tent. I don't know if it was just serendipitous timing, but they always seemed to be spic and span when I found myself in need of them.
  8. I'm gutted that Ziggy Marley's set isn't available to watch - that was one of my favourite bits of the festival. First set back in front of the Pyramid stage - I shed some happy tears! Not least when the sun broke through during Is This Love.
  9. I was next to a group of girls who seemed personally offended that she didn't do Follow Your Arrow. I was surprised, but glad with what we got from Golden Hour. Would have loved Space Cowboy though.
  10. Well that's reassuring in a way, I guess! Hope I'll get to see him again some time.
  11. Leon Bridges - but not because of his performance. I was disappointed in the crowd - it was the most tepid I've ever been in at Glasto. Barely any applause as each song ended, and disappointingly low on vibes. It's possible I was just too far back in the field, but from where I was stood I felt bad for him - like he was playing to a field of statues.

    Made it into the BBC's "...in 3 minutes" video - right at the end, as they're wrapping up with all the headliners (2:54)
  13. Libertines, Ziggy Marley, Rufus Wainwright, Crowded House, Sam Fender, Billie Eilish Katherine Priddy, Self Esteem, Olivia Rodrigo, Leon Bridges, Paul McCartney Diana Ross, New Dad, Kacey Musgraves, Kendrick Lamar, Pet Shop Boys That's sticking to the four song rule, passed by lots of great acts on my wanderings.
  14. Saw a clip of Waterfalls on the Friday overview on BBC - the miming was so atrocious! Actually laughable. Sped through the rest of the song.
  15. I'm glad that my sacrifice to the weather gods didn't go unnoticed - £40 well(y) spent. Spent all weekend in walking boots, slipped into converse on Sunday just cause I could and was fed up of lugging heavy walking boot feet around. (Got a blister by the afternoon, and back to the boots.) I was bloody freezing after the sun went down though. Thankfully brought an extra blanket to go on/in my sleeping bag which did the trick.
