Agreed, it looks like they are a long way behind at the moment. Hopefully they have got the people on site to pull this back in the next 2 weeks. 

It's also 4 days earlier than in 2019, so even further behind possibly. I'm sure they'll pull it out, well they have to.

Anyone know what this cherry picker is up to? its been there for ages now. looks like there's a mast there but i cant imagine they'd rely on a cherry picker to hold it up for next month.

Looks like what’s on the 4th picture (might be for radio comms on the site)

Someone earlier said on site CCTV during the build, and maybe during.

After seeing the close up it looks more like a signal repeater, maybe for radios?

It was in that exact spot in 2019 so assume it is mobile phone mast or site comms tower as others have suggested

There is another one over near the SE corner as well, but not on the webcam

Hmmm...I'm not seeing that they're that behind, if at all. Arcadia haven't arrived but as the spider has toured quite a number of times now, the team would be well versed by now with putting it up quickly. Rest of the site looks more as it has done at this stage in previous years with this many days to go. I'd only say that Silver Hayes looks a bit empty.

What are these? Possible repeaters for other stage?

Can confirm they're delay towers. 3 new companies working together on the acoustics this year, sound should be lot better across site.

Do you think someone had the map upside down?

I find this so amusing, imagine when they worked it out someone must have been well pissed off that they hd to do it all again

The new Glade stage doesnt seem too BIG eh??
 

Surely they won’t have sides on it? Part of the greatness of the Glade was always how open it felt especially when it was under the tree’s.

Is that supposed to be the glade dome? Not very dome looking if so.

No, the Glade Dome is in the trees. This is the new Glade stage to replace the one that used to be in the trees

Its apparently the new Glade stage no? The Glade dome is where the Glade used to be haha. Why they’re changing it (budget cuts if thats true) we might never fully know. Wonder if they can’t afford the stage the Glade usually is and thats the reason.

Seen a suggestion that with the new repeaters in The Other field that the sound from that stage would bleed across into where The Glade was previously. Seemed like a plausible explanation to me. 

That along with the idea that moving it out allows the treeline to be used as a shaded relaxing area, which the site generally lacks and was quite apparent in 2019. Current weather reports make it look like we might be more grateful for shelter from the rain in those trees come the festival!
