     I was surprised how quiet it was at the pyramid at night, me and my girlfriend had our camping chairs out sat under it looking out at the field, was kicking myself for leaving the engagement ring in the car that night

    Interesting, don’t remember having a partition in the two person  scout tent  that we’ve stayed in at Worthy View.  I assume it rolls up if not needed, there are occasions when it might be a bit of an inconvenience 😉.  Then again after a curry........

     

    You can detach the partition, can easily fit a double airbed on one side of it though and have all your stuff other side so worked quite well.

  3. Mad thing with Elton is he loves rocking up at league two grounds but the pyramid stage? no thanks.

    Just tell him its Pilton FC.

     

    I was excited for Billie when she done the other but it was pretty boring and no one is giving her a headline slot based on that. Despite being a massive star I don't think that translates into Glasto crowd success yet , I think the fact tickets for 2022 went on sale 2019 and she appeals to younger audience who have been shut out of next years festival does her no good.

    If you are in or around the pit it will be good but the rest of field will just be chatter waiting for bad guy tbh.

    Forecast looks good. Occasional shower. This place is lush. Just sat having dinner 

    I'd recommend the fish and chip stall, although things got a bit ragged with them later at night so have it early evening.

    The guys at the pasta place are really friendly and happy to hold stuff back for late arrivals, adjust recipes.

    If you want to do any of the games in the charities field, do it before the site gets busy on the weekend.

    I think i read somewhere they have a sunday market as well!! Looks soo good!!! 

    Sunday market was a bit disappointing, it was the Glastonbury postcards stall, then 5-6 random stalls selling belts, jewellery, kids clothes, mugs, non of it Glastonbury related

    Butts Long Field

    That seems to be be main one they fill, lots of the others were empty until the weekend or just empty..

    I'd guess site occupancy was 10-15% on Weds/Thurs this week and big numbers arrived Friday evening but still not full by any stretch.

    Shame they couldn't have upgraded us to a bigger tent, as we had a row of empty scout tents staring at us in plumleys paddock from our 2 man tent 😂.

    I take it there’s no problem in putting a windbreak at the front of the tent? 

    Absolutely fine. People have windbreaks, gazebos and smaller tents without question. 

    They only care about cars not being in the car park

    A question about the "quiet time". I believe they shut Kings Meadow at night (10 or 11?). But when does it open again? Some of my fondest memories of the festival have been seeing the sun break over the horizon from The Stone Circle. I' m guessing this isn't going to be possible and the field won't reopen until well into the next morning?

    Are there any other spots up on the hill where I might be able to watch the sun rise?

    As far as I can tell it doesn't shut but there is no light (pitch black) in the field or field before so its very unappealing in the dark. 

    Apparently people gather at 4 am for sunrise up here. They just don't want it being an overnighter.
