  1. Yep, it was kind of ideal weather wise. Bit overcast in the mornings = sleeping til a reasonable hour. Plenty of sun, a few showers, not too hot and not too wet. The Goldilocks of festival weather, if you will.
  2. Yep same. There's nowhere to hide when it's a hot one- 2010 was HARD.
  3. This all sounds very promising
  4. Got that coach in 2016 and we flew through - not much queue, through the gates before midday. Hope it's equally smooth sailing this year!
  5. Yep I don't care about being right at the front, just as long as we're hanging out with the dancers instead of the talkers...! I'm hoping for an LCD 2016 experience but that might be wishful thinking...
  6. No probs - good luck, hope you sell out the rest of the seats!
  7. Ah I enquired via Facebook a few months back but never heard anything Definitely think you should start making noise earlier next year, we're booked on NE now!
  8. 5'2, don't do heels so will have a sore neck from straining to see the acts all weekend as usual. I have developed a knack for politely squeezing my way forwards, finding bottles or clumps of mud to stand on (or getting there early for the acts I REALLY care about) - but the view is often easier if you stand further back. More boring though. Hate being stuck amongst people chatting when I want to be down the front with the people who are into it. Always thought I'd like to set up my own festival - 'MidgetFest'. Essentially, a normal music festival except anyone over 5'6 has to stand behind a barrier and let all the shorties go to the front. Who's in?
  9. No rumours, just complete wishlist/speculation. I think they only play cruises and casinos these days but wouldn't they go down an absolute storm on a sunny afternoon. Have they ever played?
  10. Tremendous news. Just Cure v Janelle to worry about on Sunday then.
  11. 4 paid up, 2 in the pot (cause: imminent baby)
  12. Paid up along with my sis and our buddy. YEEEAAAAHHHHHH!
  13. The Cure / Janelle Monae / Chemical Brothers / Interpol / Kylie / Johnny F Marr / Ms Lauryn Hill / Janet Jackson / Idles / CatQ I have a horrible feeling I'm going to be clashed out of half my favourites 😭

    Clashes 2019

    This would be an absolute stinker- pretty much the top 3 names on my list, if they're ALL on simultaneously I think I'll have a little breakdown.
  15. Already plenty to keep me busy - Chems/ Cure/ Janelle all high on my list (tempting fate with a clash nightmare there aren't I...?!?) Some of the pop stuff will be really good fun and great to see such a strong female presence with Kylie, Janet, Lauren Hill. Johnny F Marr, Idles, Interpol, Hot Chip, Christine &tQs, Streets, and reckon WuTang will be worth a watch. Plus a fair few names I've been meaning to check out. So, yeah, that'll do nicely for now.
  16. We had a festival/fete theme for our wedding, including festival lanyard invitations (see photo- with a running order for the weekend (we had stuff going on the days before and after as well- yes, we milked the occasion); wellies as table centrepieces (small kids ones that we used to hold the flowers) and a wooden signpost showing what was 'onsite'. Lots of our guests stayed in bunk rooms at the venue so that was designated as 'camping' and we gave them all special wristbands and vouchers for free drinks. It was awesome - you'll have so much fun!
  17. NO! Genuinely gutted. Electric frontman. Incredible band.

    The Cribs

    Love them. Afternoon slot in JP would go down very nicely thank you, if they'd do it. Step down from headlining a few years ago but I was there and it was sadly very sparse.
  19. Late Saturday night 4 of us were looking to carry on the party after a few post-headliner beers at the Park, decided against the madness of the naughty corner (we love it, but my cousin, whilst having a LOVELY time, was only functioning at about 50% consciousness and we know how busy it gets) so decided to give Arcadia a go. Oh. My. God. The mud was beyond epic. People flailing everywhere. The queue for the bar was just 2 ropes containing a literal mudbath. Everyone went down at some point, and was immediately helped back up by friendly hands. Between the effort of walking, the punishingly loud sound system and the constant hilarity we were weak with laughter- it was so not the night we expected but all the more brilliant for that. Yeah, 2016 was good.
  20. I loved 2016. Apart from getting a bit excited and overdoing it on Thursday night, being put to bed and waking up with the worst hangover of all time on Friday. Then the Brexit result sent me into weeping existential dread for a few hours but... Christine and the Queens brought me back to life. Heaton and Abbott. Sigur Ros. ELO. John Grant. New Order. Fisherman's Friends. And the absolute TRIUMPH that was LCD. Yeah, it was muddy, the build up was full of doomsday talk and misguided (non attending) folks being smug about the 'inevitable' quagmire but it seemed to me that almost made everyone a bit nicer- saw loads helping each other. Dunkirk spirit and all that!
  21. Good God that was a good year. Neil Young, YYYs, Spinal Tap, Nick Cave, Bluuuuuuuuuuur. I made good choices. I mean it's always a good year though isn't it. Is anyone else way more excited at all the potential JP names being thrown around, rather than the Other?
  22. Even more pressure to get 2020 tickets then...
  23. After their TRIUMPHANT performance in 2016, any chance of a return visit? Too soon? God that was a great show.
  24. Just had this useful (albeit widely advertised!!) link sent in my weekly email from MSE - https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/team-blog/2018/10/missed-out-on-glastonbury-tickets--how-you-can-still-go-for-free/ Includes info and registration links for various organisations including Oxfam Shelter, Festaff, WaterAid, litter picking etc.
