    Glastonbury 1990

    Hi guys. Can anyone confirm (ChemicalBrother) that Happy Mondays played on the Friday of 1990. That is what I remember. But there are so many conflicting setlists and innacurate articles online. Cheers.

    Glastonbury 1990

    Hey ChemicalBrother, Wow! What a truly amazing post! Your recollections of the event are so useful (especially how late you got your tickets), and were so detailed and eloquently put. Fantastic descriptions of the 1990 festival that really brought it to life, and also brought back so many memories for me – ‘Hash for cash!’ How could I forget that? That one is definitely going in the book! I, myself, was a wide-eyed country boy (at the mere age of 15) and Glasto ’90 was my first experience of a festival, too. I couldn’t believe the size of the whole thing, the sea of tents, the noise – especially at night when you were trying to settle down – and the mayhem. I went with my brother (two years older than me) on a bus. I think the travel was a supplement to the tickets, but I can’t for the life of me remember where we purchased them from – or when. But I do remember the journey down there from Nottingham taking FOREVER – about 5 or 6 hours of increasingly narrower, windy roads. My overriding memory of the festival was my beloved The Cure’s performance, as the sun went down behind the stage. As you mentioned, there was all that confusion about a helicopter landing and Rob Smith asking the crowd to take steps back because some people were unfortunately being crushed at the front. Oh, and I’m sure I can remember people successfully scaling the huge fence around the site to get in for free… Thank you so much for your reply!!

    Thank you, parsonjack. I had already come across that article. Some great pics showing the weather, and all the stuff about 'The Battle' on the Monday.

    Hey guys, For research purposes for a fiction book I am currently writing, I am trying, but failing to get some specific info/answers about Glasto 1990 - even though I was lucky enough to be there myself that year, there are some things I can't remember, or wouldn't possibly know. I have tried the official Glastonbury website, but they can't help me... What date exactly (within a week, or as near as possible) did tickets go on public sale and where for the 1990 festival? Has anyone get any old NMEs/diaries that might have this info? What date exactly (within a week, or as near as possible) were The Cure announced/confirmed as a headline act for the 1990 festival? Would it have been feasible for a person to use a converted VW camper van as a stall/outlet for selling ice creams with permission in the trade areas on site in 1990? When would the said trade permission have to be applied for and granted timescale-wise for the 1990 festival? And would the seller (who is also a normal punter/ticket holder) have been sent/given a special pass or ticket in advance to show on the day and to access the trade areas/spots? Also, would they have to get set up on the Thursday before the weekend? What was the general day by day weather that weekend of 1990 from Thursday through to Sunday? Would really appreciate any help at all with any of these questions. Thank you so much in advance. Adam.
