  1. The Clash. Although it would be weird without Joe Strummer it wouldn't be impossible. And if there was anywhere they would play then glasto would be the place.
  2. Fat boy slim in the dance tent in 2003... if I knew then what I know now I would have watched R.E.M. First pyramid headliner...Radiohead 2003... that was something.
  3. Just put my out of office on. Just started to get very real. I'm basically packed but will re-pack, check it off on my list and be catching the train and then coach tomorrow from 13.00.
  4. Here's the thing. Over the years there have been loads of different flavours of "secret set" some are widely reported because they are a big act lots just fly under the radar because they are just a "normal" act that for some reason wasn't on the poster or lineup. For every Killers on john peel there will be a kooks on john peel. No one gets glasto tickets for the secret sets, it's just a bonus if there is someone there who you want to see. I think expectations are way out of kilter with what can reasonably be expected.
  5. Proposed to my wife sat up by the Glasto sign in 2009. Married in 2010. Now have 2 kids.
  6. I cried just watching the documentary! Reminds me, must pack tissues.
  7. Yep, loads of stalls selling them but if it's a really muddy year then they sometimes get long queues for them and some sizes can sell out.
  8. There are usually several camping stalls that will be able to sort you out with tent pegs and rope. Try the main market but if you walk around market areas you'll usually find one. Over the counter medicine you will be able to get at the little pharmacy stall, Ranking my brains for where it is. I think just up from Williams Green. Probably coop as well. Fruit - there are fruit stands dotted around. Failing that coop. Not sure about kombucha, grinders or straws but I'm sure you'll find them somewhere. Straws are likely not to be plastic.
  9. Please can muse never play glasto again. They were great at the time but tragic now.
  10. Swimming pools (Drank) - Kendrick Green light - lorde Happier than ever - Billie
  11. They would be great
  12. Tuesday, mentally checked out weeks ago.
  13. Anyone want to have a go at predicting what songs we will get from the new album? I'm going with United in grief N95 Die hard Count me out Then I'm not sure. I'd love auntie diaries.
  14. I love the new album, I cooled a bit after the first week and felt there was a bit of filler, but I'm back to loving it. Can't wait to hear n95 live.
  15. Kenny is my most anticipated set of the weekend, can't wait, I reckon I'll get as close as I can, which I haven't done for a pyramid headliner since... checks notes... radiohead 2003.
  16. When Macca played in 2004 and I wasn't as worldly wise as I am now I saw basement jaxx on the other stage. It was busy with people like me, off their faces wanting to dance to upbeat music. Megan will have a good crowd. My I'm intrigued by how big the Billie and kendrick crowds are. They are must sees for me. Hopefully means I can get closer. I wandered into the John Peel tent just before Ash were due on stage in 2010 and it was dead and I turned to my wife and we realised that missing stevie wonder was going to be a massive mistake so pegged it over to a packed pyramid stage and caught his set, was one of the best decisions ever.
  17. She was amazing at JP stage last time. I don't know why she would be a secret set though. It's kind of where you would expect her to play.
  18. I think the original rumour was a pyramid level act, then it is a follow up hint from someone who has heard the rumour of who it (and I think from a few sources). It's their interpretation of the size of the band, they were really just saying it's not a pyramid headliner but someone pretty big. So it's definately open to speculation how big someone is. And lord knows how we love to spend time talking about whether a band is big enough to sub or where they should be on the lineup. I wouldn't let the fact that Bastille may or may not be a sub headliner size mean that it isn't them...although it may not be them 😀
  19. Ahh I stand corrected, I wasn't there, just read a review. Who are their parents?
  20. Sorry, another one in the "no chance" category. He isn't touring until September for a start.
  21. They certainly are dull. I would like it to be them so I can be somewhere else.
