    Saw them at Pukkelpop a few years back, absolutely outstanding live act. Would be great to see them at Glastonbury
  2. Seems to be a change in approach. We've been on the farm several times outside the festival and never encountered any issues. Plenty of locals walking dogs (mostly on Muddy Lane) and a few festival goers checking the place out. If they are getting a bit strict, might be worth checking the OS map to see exactly where the public footpaths are, and making sure you don't go on to any land with grazing animals. I would be 90% sure that the path from Tithe Barn all the way down to the top of Hitchin HIll is a public right of way, beyond that I would not be sure, but there is a clear footpath and we've seen notices at the fence at the end of that path for temporary suspension of the public right of way (during the pre, fest and post time) suggesting you could continue outside the temporary suspension.
  3. I concur. Very now (I'm not now, I'm then). I'm not going to complain as I can offer nothing as an alternative.

    Saw The Beths at PUkkelpop this summer, would love to see them again. Will have a listen to some of the others, cheers.

    Do it! I like female fronted guitar bands (Ex Hex, The Photos, Upset are three on heavy rotation) so would be interested to see what's out there that I am missing.

    Me too. I'm not a fan of Kendrick Lamar's music and I am a fan of Pet Shop Boys music so selfishly that'd be ideal for me.

    40th Anniversary U2 (granted they cancelled) Muse Stevie Wonder 50th Anniversary Kendrick Lamar Paul McCartney Taylor Swift Not many can match that, both in terms of popularity of the acts and the evolution of gene.
  8. They were mint in 2008. Bring 'em back
  9. I saw Rihanna headline Pukkelpop a couple of years back. Be careful what you wish for (not that you're wishing for her).
  10. Campervans showing sold out but keep at it! We snagged one at 20 past. Rush had died down a bit, easy on then 3-4 refreshes and tickets were back available.
  11. A decent trolley is a sound investment https://www.homebase.co.uk/p-handle-trolley-with-pneumatic-tyres-250kg_p374785?utm_source=hotukdeals&utm_medium=hotukdeals&utm_campaign=hotukdeals
  12. Last one, from Astrolabe to the "junk yard" on the way to Gate C. I have other walks but they are too wonky to share.
  13. As I a "working" from home, I have uploaded another. Here's a little stroll down towards John Peel and then into The Woods.
  14. I finally got around to uploading my first GoPro video, I visited Worthy Farm after the festival last summer and tried out the GoPro so thought I would upload a vid to Youtube to see how it looked, and so I have something for the dark and rainy winter that's to come. If you want a look you should be able to watch it here. Very boring, even for us festival types, but you get to see why the Pyramid cannot move back, what the farm looks like when it's empty, you can probably hear me breathing and eventually you get to see the view from what's left of the Pyramid "stage" and my stupid face at the end. It is available in HD but I have only just uploaded so you might see poor quality initially. I have a couple more (badly filmed) bits from the farm so will upload them later. So, I can say, today I have prepared for Glastonbury 2020 by trying to spread a bit of joy via farm vids.
