  1. The Seaside Stage field is off-limits for the next couple of years (in general, not just for the festival) while the flood defences are being updated.
  2. Spent 10 years seeing Slow Club whenever they toured near here (and watching them gradually fall apart). Was curious to see what Rebecca would do solo, and I was not disappointed. Both albums have been fantastic. Seeing her again at Victorious in 4 weeks 🥰

    2023 Headliners

    Yep, I'd say Common People and Disco 2000 are massively known like Parklife - songs that wouldn't be out of place at a wedding disco. More known to the casual listener than something like Karma Police, but did anyone say Radiohead weren't big enough in 2017?
  4. Me too! Saw their secret set on the park after wanting to see them for years, then a week later my sister phoned saying she had a spare ticket for their day at wireless so I ended up seeing them twice in 8 days. After their glasto set I turned to my husband and said "I've waited 15 years for that", then my sister said exactly the same thing to me at wireless 😂

    Pulp for legend slot?
  6. I've got an uncle who's too religious to believe in man-made climate change (there's only 1 guy omnipotent enough to change the climate, and if He wants us to burn there's nothing we can do about it). FFS 🙄
  7. Good point, it has been quite pleasant working from home today. I think the "urban heat island" effect is cancelled out by the "being an actual island" effect. Always stays milder here than on the mainland.
  8. Don't think I'm going to win this one, got up to about 27° today in Portsmouth.

    2023 legend slot

    True, but I think there's a difference between "I heard 1 of their songs on the playlist and loved it, I'll check them out" and "I'm going to talk all the way through until they play the 1 song I know".
  10. I wonder how many of that 99% were taken home by the people who brought them, and how many were discarded but taken by someone else.

    2023 legend slot

    Fair enough, so it's not a complete no-no (but it might feel a bit less special if it's someone like Chic who's played quite recently). I think Duran Duran have exactly the sort of hits you want for the spot, but they're still headlining other festivals. Probably don't see themselves as fodder for the Sunday afternoon chair people.

    2023 legend slot

    Has the legend ever played the festival before taking the lege spot? (I know Kylie guested with Scissor Sisters, anyone played a full set?)

    Paul McCartney

    I know what you mean. I was 20 last time Macca played Glasto, and it made me so happy to see the "young people" this year loving it as much as me 🥰

    2023 Headliners

    Ok, so they shouldn't headline because their good stuff is old, you want headliners with modern hits?
  15. Shush, I loved walking past the bacon sarnie queues and getting my breakfast momos! Don't let people know they can eat other things in the morning, if they can't work it out themselves they deserve to queue 😂

    Paul McCartney

    On Sunday they had 1 XL hoodie left that was half price because it had been stapled up on display. I was tempted, but wasn't sure I'd be able to fit it in my bag (and I'm not XL, so it would have been more like a muumuu on me).
  17. Yeah @zahidf, enough is enough. I tested positive on Tuesday, but probably won't bother wasting a test to see when I'm negative. Still feeling ill so won't be doing much this weekend, and should be clear by next weekend. Will be WFH, so don't need to worry about coming into contact with people in the meantime.
  18. With Doja Cat out and Sam Fender bumped up, there must have been some space that could've been used for them.

    Paul McCartney

    I was quite far back so couldn't see everything. Watching back on the iPlayer now, some of the visuals on the screen for Got To Get You Into My Life were straight off of Beatles rock band!
  20. Go on the ticket page now and hit refresh more than 60 times in a minute, it'll ping you to the holding page.
  21. My husband went to see mitski while I went to Macca. Sent him the what 3 words and a photo of the nearest flags and he found me with no problems (although I deliberately picked a less busy area so he'd be able to turn up late). Did have to send all messages to him on WhatsApp and text, because it was hit & miss what would get through (he's on Vodafone, I had no problems on EE).
  22. He was on the screens before libertines (and I assume was shown on the pyramid too). My initial reaction was "doesn't he have anything better to do at the mo?", but I wasn't really paying attention and didn't realise he was asking for money for weapons. That doesn't seem very Glasto.
  23. Another top tip: if you put a ring of bog roll on the seat before using the loo, TAKE IT OFF AFTERWARDS! Don't leave it there for the next person to find.
