    I bloody love this festival because...

    Yesss, this was defo 2015, around Park Home Ground area, and I was a little sad about having to start my Sunday evening shift, my feet thoroughly KNACKERED etc. Going past this one put a right smile on my face, which then turned into a persistent giggle, then full on bent-over laughter! They were going through the keyboard's demos, every so often hitting the percussion buttons, happy as Larry, nodding along.

    Has anyone here ever met Jarvis Cocker of Pulp?

    DJ set that bud! Might be my birthday night out though.

    Bowie at Glasto

    I wasn't a cool enough 13 year old to be at Glastonbury 2000, but I really appreciated all the little Bowie things at Glaston 2016. I liked contributing to this, in the Cabaret area. I wonder where that is now? A closer look at each part of this can be found here: https://imgur.com/a/KVvtH7q . I put the lyric from A Memory Of A Free Festival on Bowie #2's hand. It seemed apt!

    Bowie at Glasto

    I've made myself really happy-sad about Glastonbury and David Bowie. I've thrown myself to the embers of the emotions. I want a hug. I love you all. xx

    Bowie at Glasto

    This a top rendition of Golden Years. LOVING that all this is finally being broadcast, Awww brilliant. Get this queued up for afterwards btw, it's a stunning piece of work from Soulwax/2manydjs. A straight up mix of Bowie and Bowie-adjacent stuff, with a dreamy film to accompany it. Promise it's worth an hour of your time!! https://vimeo.com/53207758

    I feel similar. But also that Glastonbury never lives in its own shadow. It embraces its history, while always evolving and pushing itself further.

    Infusions 2019

    Yes, just for sake of looking nice I split them into the pink and yellow varieties. They dissolve quicker than other ones I've tried and leave no unwanted residue. The strong pear taste overpowers the vodka, and could be mixed with any fruity kind of mixer. If the resale goes well I'll be making double what I did last year. Also did the Werthers originals vodka, and used that to make some toffee white russians. Nice, but a bit of a pain to infuse and filter, very very sweet and a lingering aftertaste. No such issues with the pear drops!

    Infusions 2019

    Pear drop vodka was a revelation last year. So tasty, so clean, so refreshing. Got a few lemonades with ice in when Foo Fighters played last year as a mixer, and I was handing them round to everyone for a drink. Unreal how refreshing and good it was after a long day drinking beers. What a friendly beautiful night that was....

    Resale Club 2019

    For me in 2016 it was LCD Soundsystem. I'd only got into them during their hiatus, so was absolutely desperate to be there. I even sent Al Doyle a despairing tweet about not having a Glastonbury ticket. Fast forward to Thursday night at Glastonbury, I'm at a DJ set Doyle's doing at the Crows Nest, show him the tweet I'd sent, say "BUT I MADE IT!", and he reaches over to give me the biggest hug. He gets it. Then LCD put in that legendary showing on the Sunday. If you want something to happen strongly enough, it actually will happen!! Keep the faith, friends.

    LCD Soundsystem....

    Al Doyle will surely return to do his Thursday all-night DJ set at the Crows Nest, with special guests. If so: be there! I sorely hope to get lucky in April and be there with you.
