Did anyone notice that tent go up right below the webcam ? or has everyone given up monitoring the cam today ? or has it previously been posted about and I missed it ?

I saw it, but had no idea what it was, despite it seeming familiar, so was too embarrassed to mention it.

If 2013 is anything to go by, they have some good times while doing it. Here's them finishing the job that year.

Hmmm? Hang on!

Isn't it missing the top level, outfacing angled overlap that makes grappling hooks an unfeasible strategy? (That may have been added post 2013 tbf).

I think that was added at the birth of the super fence in 2002? Maybe they have only put the inner fence up and they still have to go round and do the outer fence?

The missing cover from the top of one of the columns on the Other Stage is playing havoc with my OCD this week!

This is going to blow people away, I can't wait to see the finished structure it's going to be massive

That’s a dire battery and backup situation!

I knew that would give cause for comment ... backup to iCloud is automatic ... and the battery situation has been like that for a week ... not like a mobile where I would struggle if its lower than 60 % :)

Still no idea where Arcadia are going with this. The symbol on the map is circular - is that a clue?

Its a big old crane with arms dangling off it with dancers and fire and explosions at a guess. I'm sure it'll all be safe 🙄

Never mind dressing the other or the pyramid. Looks like the urinals at the back of the pyramid field are soon to be dressed! The welcome sight for us weak bladdered old hippies who still think we can down pint after pint of cider and smoke anything wrapped in a rizla

The blurb says it's going to be 50m tall and will incorporate an old RAF radome cover - i.e. those golf ball radar things.  The radomes at RAF Fylingdales were 40m high before they were replaced with rectangular things.  If, for example, they had got hold of a Fylingdales-sized radome, and mounted it 10m off the ground, that would be a spectacle to match the spider.  (I doubt they'd be able to do anything on this scale though - a more realistic project would be a smaller radome mounted up high with other stuff mounted below it.)  They're complicated geodesic constructions, and at that size they're going to be heavy.  It would definitely need something like that crane base to keep it supported in the wind etc.  I don't reckon they'd want to mess around too much with the golf-ball for structural reasons, so perhaps they're going to stick a spherical projector inside it, and maybe have a few flame throwers or stage electricals sticking out of it?  That would tie in with the other theme in the blurb - they claim it will be available for young artists to express themselves in future years, (i.e. putting together projection displays?)

Could the radomes be on the ground with stuff projected from the inside?  And other stuff suspended from the crane. How about a stage hanging from the crane with all of the flame throwers and gubbins underneath swooping over the revellers

A stage hanging from the crane doesn't sound realistic 😂 Big heavy structures like a stage being dangled over a crowd by a crane sounds a like a no no to me in terms of health and safety. I'm very curious to see what they come up with though, it's impressively massive already.

Yep, any personnel beneath a suspended crane load is a big fat no! More likely the crane tower is a support for something or if it used for suspending anything it will be cordoned off underneath. 50 metres high is massive though. Sure it will be amazing but I get the feeling that it's going to grow into something special over the years. Surely the main body of the crane will be a permanent fixture on the site now with all the foundations that have gone in?

I am tempted to do this tomorrow.

Does anyone know if we’re still allowed or have the “please don’t enter the site” signs gone up?
