  1. Been wanting to go since I was 16, I'm now 39 and finally went this year. Surpassed expectations. Cried at least 4 times with delight. Sound quality was one of the things which pleasantly surprised me, as was how generally nice people were. Sure, drugs help with that, but I saw little to no aggro throughout the weekend, which shows that, generally, people are nice! I'd done a fairly good job of learning the map, so was fairly efficient and only had a few minor regrets in terms of stuff I missed (I sort of expected to miss a lot more than I did). I did a fair bit of exploring, but forgot to try pushing/going into random bits of wall/doors, especially around Shangri-La. Tried to meet up with perhaps too many disparate groups of friends which was nice, but to be fair I can see them any time. Couldn't have asked for more weather wise, and to be honest I'm considering never going again as I wouldn't want to sully what was basically a perfect experience. That said I've picked up a nasty cold which isn't helping with the comedown
  2. Did anyone watch Avalon Emerson? I sacked off a few things to hang around Silver Hayes and watch her, only to get bored quite quickly. Seemed like a "festival set" rather than anything interesting I was hoping for. Also gutted to miss Palms Trax and Jobse.
  3. Not exactly related but I saw a genuine security guard on the warpath in Wow on Sunday afternoon. He confiscated a guy's bag of coke/K and and balloon cannister. He was an angry stocky bald guy and I suspect he was a rogue element in an otherwise laissez-faire security force. However I DID notice a lot more security out and about on Sunday night.

    Yeah I think he's part of the Transgressive takeover of the Rabbit Hole. Just after midnight if memory serves correctly...
  6. Swap for a two-person scout tent? (worth a try!)
  7. Why anyone would not be packing wellies and waterproofs for Glasto is beyond me!
  8. If you want to feel better about things, I suggest the UKV model on netweather. I suggest we should be looking at that and ECMWF ANYWAY, since they're more accurate than GFS
  9. Yeah, mainstream forecasters apparently (this is according to Nate Silver) "bump up" rain, showing it as more likely than it is too, because readers will be more annoyed if its forecast no rain, and it rains, than vice versa
  10. Bit confused at what people are complaining about now. The ensembles now have us looking at extremely minimal rain all days. Latest ECMWF also has that Saturday band of rain missing us.
  11. Stupid question, but I'm a first timer: the email/info implies everyone keeps their festival tickets after passing through Gate A. Is that correct?
  12. I've been looking back through historical weather data and 2014 looks like it might be a worst case scenario for us (although I think the rain started earlier than its due to this year). There also appeared to be little rainfall in the build-up, like this year, meaning the ground was dry. Anyone confirm/deny this? Thoughts? Feelings? Should I fuck off?
  13. So...for those with expertise and experience in such matters... how much rain can a bone dry Worthy Farm take on a Friday/Sat/Sun of festival before it becomes a mudbath? (Feel free to send me packing to the weather thread if you feel this is bringing (bogging) us down)
