  1. Whoops, I meant Great Holmes!
  2. I'd say get yourself pitched in Great Plains, which is anywhere in front of you just to your right or left as you go in. Nice distance from the arena but not too chaotic. It's not crazily big, but a good idea would be to do a lap of the place first time you go in on Friday, as you can circle round the place to get a good lay of the land, with the main stage being at the centre of the thing. Maybe stick to your left as you go in, past Chai Wallahs, to the real ale bar, or the wines of Argentina bar, whatever takes your fancy, grab a drink, then double back on yourself, go uphill, into the woods, all the way round, back down the slope on the other side, then eventually through to see whoever happens to be on the main stage! So that's the pink line on this map, if that sounds a good idea, all the while popping to any venue, or bar, that seems interesting! You'll soon get a hang of the place. One of the more unique things is that the Tim Peaks venue is a permanent structure, a deer shed for the deer farm! It can be a place early on to chill out, feel a bit civilised and get a nice coffee, or somewhere to dance on the chairs to later on!
  3. They got added when the full final lineup came out, believe they'll be on Friday afternoon, 2ish, House Party. x
  4. Definitely, I expect the section of the site hasn't updated for 2019. Somebody went into their cafe and asked if they were there, and were told not this time.
  5. Ghandi's will not be there this year!
  6. I'll have both, if you want to send them as a pair, or just the shuttle of that is all that remains, please!
  7. Not Glastonbury, but I often return to this video for a smile for the same reason:
  8. T'riffic! I've tried to have some reflected glow of Glastonbury love from people who went, so this is nice. And at least, I Was There for that! Never to be forgotten.

    The Cure

    Imagine all the cool young people listening to The Cure for the first time tonight.

    The Cure

    Aye, normally you have to start off big rock shows fast and hard, but The Cure are the exception to the rule really aren't they? Set the tone and mood, then carry you along very nicely indeed. I am also enjoying my wine, cheers!

    The Cure

    I'm loving this. After the absolute slog a hot Glastonbury must be, I bet there's a fair few people having a good cry in that field.
  12. Got a superfan mate at the festival, about what time are we thinking?

    If I was at there, and at The Park, a big part of me would have dragged me to Shangers. But even on TV that Park set was special. I'm going to Kendal Calling, they clash with Doves, how shiiiit!
  14. I sent a heart emoji to a good friend who is there, she sent some back. I resisted the urge to ask who she watched, how she's doing, any of that nonsense, because who's doing that at 1am on Friday night at Glastonbury. Anyway, for such an inconsequential thing, it affected me. I feel a bit more connected, to my friend, to the incredible time I know they'll be having. While being more aware how disconnected I am from where I wish to be. I think that's what I miss the most from not being there, that feeling of connection with your friends, people in general, the festival itself. That's part of doing this, to feel connected to all of you, to spread my feelings out on display. I don't know. I don't know, I don't know. I love my friends more dearly than I'm allowed to say aloud. (UnWorthy FM)
  15. I don't know what it is, maybe it's having got through Wednesday and Thursday, maybe it's a feeling that comes and goes in stages, maybe it's the beers, maybe it's now feeling like it's before I first went to Glastonbury because lovely Mark Radcliffe is on the telly, but I'm not so bad at the moment. Good to know the Wormhole is making enough of a racket that it's distracting BBC. Want reviews of that when people come back, it looks good, a proper indoor floored venue.
  16. I know Strumpets With Crumpets have stopped trading.

    Pyramid pit?

    The second barrier's been there years, just to avoid bad crushing. The gap between I'm presuming is another safety measure, there's been one or two of the bigger shows paused while a route is made to someone suffering in the crowd. Maybe from that gap they can keep watch, get people to some breathing room... just speculating.
  18. Idles is already brilliant and they've only played the same two notes again and again.
  19. Love to all. Whenever I've listened to a Maribou State tune it's not made me run to another. But they've started more dancing then I've seen elsewhere today, as the temperature lowers of course, and it's sounding goooood. BBC2 starts in a couple of minutes.
  20. Oof, yeah, tomorrow is looking full on. If I was there, I'd be taking it easy tonight, then going hard tomorrow evening.
  21. I just went on a run in an attempt to be healthy before I drink quite a bit for the next three days (WARM), I put Hot Chip on shuffle, and I swear it just played all their sad bangers. I don't know if that was the Glastonbury magic mocking me or putting her arm round me. Goat Girl on now, perfect soothing sounds for those taking a refuge from the sun. I am very very glad that everyone is having a lovely time, but it should have been us. It will feel even sweeter in 2020, I'm going to make sure of it. Thankfully I'll be spending tomorrow with friends in the same boat. Only knowing my luck everyone will want to watch The Killers or Chemical Brothers instead of Hot Chip. I've not got a ticket, and I still can't get away from the clashes. (UnWorthyFM)
  22. https://www.vice.com/en_uk/article/8xz7za/photos-glastonbury-festival-worthy-farm-6am-morning?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter Probably the quietest Glastonbury gets once the gates have opened. Some beautiful pictures. Tom Odell has just started BBC's coverage. It's not for me. Idles should be a good watch.
  23. This? Retweeted by #######. Keep on enjoying, bud!
  24. It's funny seeing from the outside, people broadcasting an occasional first impression, and it's brilliant and pure because it cuts through all that cynicism people have. But it's relentless, so many people doing their one tweet, one photo, some do a few more, and it's suddenly very easy to see why tickets were so much harder to get this time. Because it'll be harder next! I see that Emily has joined her dad, who is doing a full set with a band this year, and it's a beautiful thing. But it isn't, because they are not singing to us.
