    Campervan field @ Boomtown

    Very much not strict. Most vans have had a tent with them for the last couple of years. Don't take the piss and you'll be fine.

    Yup, but usually only a couple of weeks beforehand.

    Madness are free that weekend.... Can't see it being Percy myself; not sure BT and BD have shared a headliner in the same year (apart from the Levs, natch).

    And let's be honest; nothing ever changes at Beautiful Days, ever. It's Groundhog Day in festival form.

    Bearded Theory 2018

    Orbital? The Mondays? Frank Turner? Paul & Jacqui?

    British Summer Time 2018

    Wise advice. Or, to put it another way; don't bother with gigs in Hyde Park. Seriously. You'll be surrounded by c**ts. C**ts with lots of money.

    Bearded Theory 2018

    Sounds like an American band; if I had to guess I'd say Dropkick Murphys or Flogging Molly. Both seem like Bearded type of bands.

    PSB vs PSB

    Too right. I've been to every Glasto since 1992 and the PSBs in 2010 is by far the best set I've ever seen on the farm. Everyone I speak to that was there says pretty much the same - it was a phenomenal gig. Neil and Chris have both said it's one of their favourite shows they've ever played too.

    Justice out, Soulwax in!

    Which begs the question why did they get booked on the same evening? Very odd, surely Bestival knew the staging spec long before the week before the festival?

    Tom Waits

    I guess if he played (which he never will, let's face reality) he'd headline West Holts? He'd probably be better suited to Acoustic but it'd likely be Portishead 95 all over again. I'd be happy if he ever plays any UK gigs again, let alone Glasto.

    Secret Garden Party 2017 Alcohol

    It doesn't have an arena/campsite divide; once you're in the gates, that's it.

    Just to add, they didn't headline NME in 92. They played 3rd on the Pyramid on Saturday evening, before Lou Reed and Shakespear's Sister. NME headliners that year were Primal Scream, The Shamen and 808 State.

    Avalon announce

    The Mavericks! Wonderful news, their last 2 albums have been ace. Really strong showing from Avalon this year.

    Bearded Theory Festival 2017

    Could be miles off but I reckon the final headliner might be Frank Turner. Or maybe DKM or Flogging Molly if they're in Europe at the time which doesn't look likely.
