    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.
  2. Idles is already brilliant and they've only played the same two notes again and again.
  3. 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.
  4. Oof, yeah, tomorrow is looking full on. If I was there, I'd be taking it easy tonight, then going hard tomorrow evening.
  5. 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)
  6. 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.
  7. This? Retweeted by #######. Keep on enjoying, bud!
  8. 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.
  9. Hello friends, this is a place for us ticketless, us wallowers, us UnWorthy to help each other through the next few days! I will be sharing pics, vids and stuff I find around the internet, chatting about the BBC footage as it happens, and sharing songs that echo my feelings about not being there (UnWorthy FM!), deep into the night, with a healthy kick of wine as we go into the weekend, and I welcome you to do so as well. It's all gonna be okay, or else. xxx
  10. You'll be loving any gust of wind by Fri/Sat!!
  11. Flamingods, Crows Nest, 4.15-4.45pm Saturday
  12. Well pleased for them, that slot is always buzzing. Get to see them next month at Kendal Calling. Wonder if they'll be booked to replace Sam Fender on John Peel on Friday as well.

    Sam Fender

    I'd say it's ripe to have The Big Moon on, especially if they are doing William's Green slot tomorrow.

    Resale Club 2019

    Oof, had a message off someone, "We're here, fancy meeting up?"... That was tough. Part of me wants to ditch everything, go down to Glastonbury town with someone from here, and see what happens.
  15. Sundown... my pics from 2017 suggest 10.30pm!

    Bar Prices?

    I haven't taste tested since the change, but Carlsberg changed their recipe recently. Heard it's better.
  17. They're trialling 100% compostable packaging.
  18. This belongs as well I think
  19. Here's the early morning set they did in Islington in March: https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/vampire-weekend/2019/islington-assembly-hall-london-england-23924c6b.html I've just noticed their current stage set-up suits the new-look Park stage to a tee as well. As I don;t have a ticket, I wouldn't have minded seeing that on TV, but BBC only ever films anything pre-1.30pm on rare occassions. Anyway, I've told my first-timer Vampire Weekend fan friend, and he's delighted, nice one.
  20. As soon as I came on here and started seeing people saying they didn't like 'Glasto', I started using Glaston as my shortened version.
  21. Didn't realise til I idly went on the site while at the festival in 2017, that it does a "Now & Next" thing as well, so you can see what you've highlighted that's on now, or soon. That made me realise it was Confidence Man at 3am time, and off we went to The Rabbit Hole!

    EPO bands

    Makes me wonder if this was a condition of increasing the capacity by 7000 for next year.

    Hot Chip

    Cal's having you on! I remember Caribou - Can't Do Without You, showing Al the tweet I'd sent him a few weeks before saying how sad I was I didn't have a ticket as I was gonna miss LCD, and saying to him "But I managed to get here after all!!" and him reaching over and giving me a massive hug, Prince - Controversy, dancing with Sarah and the boys, Joe having a turn on the decks and announcing Remain was gonna win the referendum, and a Hot Chip supermix at the end. It was just the right amount of people.
  24. Well according to these terms and conditions (https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/39W67tNSXqqGZf3GnRNlCrz/how-to-enter-radio-2-s-glastonbury-festival-competition) they were supposed to pick one winner today, one tomorrow, and one Wednesday to go forward to Thursday's quiz, but they actually picked three this morning. So I don't know where we stand now....
