Is what’s left of Pangea staying, though? Looks like that crew have left already. 

Yep, looks like whats left is staying....and they have covered it in green stuff to make it blend in???

Ha! - yes, I wasn't sure if paint or foliage/webbing - hence the "stuff"

There's a closer picture floating around somewhere.  Looks like it's painted rather than just covered.

Paint job Is good for 11 months camouflage..... but it also looks way more “Arcadiary” and less Avonmouth Dock for next years show.

Glorious, isn't it? There's something quite therapeutic about seeing it all turn back to nature.

Yep still check in each day.  One thing I never realised was how many backup generators the site uses - the pile by the pyramid is aboslutely nuts.

They are not back up generators.  They are the local generators that provide the required power for each local area.  Every stage, venue and trader basically plugs into them via a bunch of smaller distribution points.  The power requirements for each user are known and then the generators sourced and positioned accordingly.

The cows will be back on soon, it also doesn’t look like it’s rained since before the festival. 

Bit overnight thurs/friday last week, but only really noticeable first thing as the paths were slightly damp!  I think we've probably had perfect festival weather for 4 weeks in a row now!

Ah ok, for some reason I presumed most power was cabled underground.  I trust they're running on bio diesel :D

Most cables are running on the ground behind the scenes.  The only ones dug into the ground are when they in public places.

I expect the festival would love to be carbon neutral / carbon negative, but sadly I expect its not.

Not actually sure if it counts as Biodiesel or not, but they're running on a fuel based largely on waste Vegetable Oil.

Ah cool, thanks for that. I presumed it would be on some sort of bio fuel of sorts.  25MW for the site, wow!

Needs more legs, and a body and head...

In fact, if they want a 5 year plan, then giant fighting mechs of some sort has to be it, surely? A DJ battle with one in each mech.
