  1. I had a lot of fun at the Calvin set tbh. It was a bit of a shame he didn't mix it up compared to his usual stuff (sounded basically identical to his Big Weekend set) but I can't lie, screaming One Kiss and Slide etc with all my mates as I was floating in space after Four Tet was a bloody riot. Then straight off to Shangs after. Mate who was working Arcadia all weekend also said Calvin was proper sound and DJ'd backstage after too. We like to see it!

    2023 Headliners

    I do like The 1975 and think they have some great tunes (and are actually a bit more interesting and original sonically than lots give them credit for), but the thought of them headlining feels really off post 2022 festival. Just feels like there are way more suitable candidates with more to say? It feels like the festival is now at a stage where each headliner starts a conversation about something when you tell someone that they're headlining. Yet at the same time I could also see it happening, idk. It's a weird one. I suppose 2019 shows that a "normal" act like The Killers can headline.

    I've been a big fan of the album cause I thought it was a a vibe, but I was also so pleasantly surprised by how good her live show is on top of this. Agree that the songs just seem to make sense in the context of the rest of the set (really like the stage setup and her band too) Gutted not many of my friends saw her tbh!
  4. It was so unbelievably rammed wasn't it? Sunday morning in there felt borderline dangerous at times. Haven't been since 2017 but I much preferred the old setup, it almost felt like this year the stage area was so big that it just attracted everyone because it seemed an obvious place to go (but without the capacity to meet this demand).

    Olivia Rodrigo

    Definitely think this is the defining thing an artist needs to do for a memorable slot. You of course need a few tunes, but something about an artist recognising the significance of it all just always absolutely gets me. Fender having tears in his eyes made me well up too.
  6. This x 100. Mentioned it about 50 times in various threads and Whatsapp groups now but just, FUCKING HELL. https://djpooch.bandcamp.com/track/sexy-lady-feat-de-legal - As soon as I hear this I'm transported straight back to the very peak of it.

    2023 Headliners

    Fender crowd felt ENORMOUS, but I got there before Phoebe ended so not great timing for me. I should have come down from the back rather than trying to get in at the side, proper rookie error that,

    paolo nutini

    Had no idea he even played until I opened this thread! Love that, only at Glastonbury haha.
  9. Ditto haha Not so much a hack really, but whoever started the Fresh and Black hype on here forever has my gratitude and love. Those few extra hours each morning really were a gamechanger after finishing up at 6/7am most nights. I've never been one for buying nice tents (as I hate camping) but I can safely say that was one of the best purchases I've made!

    I fucking loved it, but I was always going to tbh. Just wish she'd been on the Friday.
  11. It's so funny cause I was thinking "this is basically like the Taylor cider bus thing all over again" 😅 One thing I will say is it was one of the few times I was completely sober haha. Reckon Fleetwood would get agargantuanm crowd. Almost my entire group would go see them, whereas not many of us saw Macca.
  12. SO good. Incredible euphoria mixed with the tinge of sadness to be going home, and with a huge dose of gratitude for the festival generally.
  13. Personally think this is now sitting as my favourite DJ sets ever, the vibes were IMMACULATE.
  14. I stood next to/behind "him" waiting to cross the road (you know when the stewards make you wait while a vehicle comes past) so I had a good ten seconds of staring. I really wish I'd asked whether he was Mick Fleetwood now, we're both from basically the same town so that could have been the in!
  15. Not posted on here in awhile but...I'm convinced I saw Mick Fleetwood on site on the Friday up by the Co-Op. He's a pretty distinctive looking guy but I fully accept it could have been a lookalike as doesn't he live in Hawaii or something? Still though. If it wasn't him, he has a twin.
  16. Oh shit I never knew it was Dog Blood! Rate it.
  17. Mates wedding clashes with Lost Village this year, so it's another year where I've not managed to go. Gutted! I'm such a firm believer in the crowd noise being added to mixes as well. There are some tunes from mixes that I'm pretty sure I love solely because they sounded like they went off.
  18. As Tommy said, he plays everything really. This set is an all timer, everything from Burial to Sugababes, I wish I could have been at Lost Village for this more than anything. Bonobo is a fantastic DJ too, although in my experience you'll get less curveball tunes than Four Tet.

    Kendrick Lamar

    I'm still smarting over missing Blur to see The Prodigy tbh
  20. Wish I had more upvotes cause all these EM's are so so good. Always find myself listening to an EM at the gym cause you can usually spread it out over two sessions. Special mention for the Jackmaster 2012 Megamix. Not an EM but Shining Star, The Behling & Simpson remix of Ciara - Like a Surgeon, the Destiny's Child Say My Name bootleg of Martyn - We Are You in the Future, Joy O remixing Donnell Jones, just, fucking hell. Probably my most listened to mix ever.

    Kendrick Lamar

    I completely see this point of view, that Sunday night emotional state really can dictate things sometimes. Kenny on the Friday was always the dream for me but I'm hoping Lorde before (is this basically confirmed btw?) will get some of my mates there with me and then they'll hopefully stay. Purple Hearts could be a good opener actually. Listening through on headphones now, some of the beats on here go haaard.
  22. Been rinsing so much Trance Wax recently, I'd be all over him playing IICON (or an Ejeca set somewhere). I think he's about the right level of accessible but still not super mainstream for that stage. Trance 29 would be an utter moment.
  23. 😆 Whenever one of my mates would come round he'd always have a new description for it "is this forthcoming Untold on Hemlock?"
  24. SO. GOOD. Four Tet at Arcadia could be absolutely massive this year actually ❤️ On the Essential Mixes note...Jonas Rathsman and Perseus' vivdly takes me back to being 21/22 in my final year of Uni and it's such a time capsule for that era of "deep house" Some other classics for me Caribou, both of them Nero's frommmm 2010? (Blinded by the Lights) Rustie Jack Beats Jamie xx
  25. Were any of you at this? I always come back to it, sounds like it was amazing. (Bonus questions; what's the best Essential Mix of all time?)
