Glastonbury evolves

Recommended Posts

Changes afoot for Block 9 and Arcadia, from Emily's interview with NME...

“We’re spreading out Block 9 a bit, giving them more space as they’ve got some pretty mind boggling ideas that we’re putting into action. We’ve been chatting to Arcadia about doing something quite radical in that field – they’ve come up with some inspired plans. It’s best kept under wraps, but it’s certainly raising the bar!”

It does feel like it'll be Glasto Latino that'll be impacted....

to be honest it takes up loads of room in that area unused. glasto latino could either be made smaller or gotten rid of entirely.

It's going to be a new queueing system to get in, isn't it?

anyway all this sounds really good, they need to have a fallow year to make these kind of significant changes so its a blessing in disguise really. She also mentioned something about the Park changing.

looking at the page on the festival site for Glasto Latino it doesn't seem that there is an awful lot there ... This might however put pay to my always in the back of my mind plan to try the dancing ..... probably for the good for the rest of the others trying it and FMS probably won't have the capacity for injuries once I get going !!

There's been a Latino tent for a good few years, certainly before the Glasto Latino field.  I remember being in it in Holts (c 2011), and before that in the Dance Village (c 2009), so your chance to dance may not disappear.

From admittedly fuzzy memories, the busiest parts of Glasto Latino were the Rum Shack, the Latino tent and a pretty straight up, non Latino, indie disco place.  There's also, as mentioned, quite a bit of room in that field down the bottom end where the late night entrance is.  I could imagine the popular bits being retained in a 'new' area that gives more space to the heaving parts from neighbouring fields.

they should move Glasto Latino to the Cabaret field. both areas are wasted at night while Block9/Shangri-La are bursting at the seams.

Wouldn't be surprised if the new Arcadia thing is bringing along their new indoor blacked out venue - 5000 capacity they posted on their Facebook, its getting its first outing at their event in May.

it will be good to see more people moved away from southeast corner ... but Arcadia is also very busy so I do wonder if it will be as difficult to get up there , it had some pretty tight queues going up the tracks ... will have to wait and see I guess

Is that alongside the spider? Thus making two Arcadia venues?

Maybe I'm being thick here but... Arcadia has queues?

I camp pretty close to it (Oxlyers) and have always just strolled to it, although I admit I've probably not gone at the busiest of times. Last year I was there about midnight-ish on the Sunday, which I assume would be a fairly busy time? Memory is a little hazy as this was after about 120 hours of solid drinking.

That perhaps because you're doing it wrong. You are supposed to eat solids, drink liquids.

A late night area with 3 or 4 places playing music from the 50's to the 90's. Basically a big area of cheese where you can dance until 6am without having to listen to house music.

Only time i went was midnight-ish on the sunday and whilst it was busy-ish there was nothing near to a queue. Think on other nights there was though.
