I mean, it happened in 2011... which is why it's even more unbelievable that it was lined up to happen again just five years later. 100% a load of bollocks.

It wasn’t quite “full” Radiohead, Thom & the guitarist as far as I remember (we got shut out by the arches & weren’t able to get in) but I’m agreeing with you.

I also thought it was 2010 & 2011 was Pulp but it neither matters! It’s been a while.

Nah I'm sure they were. Or heard it off someone else. There was no room for them on The Park what so ever, no rumours leading up to it. Let alone the time to set down a band, set their gear up them going 'Nah' and then setting up the next band with no interruptions. 

I'm sure your friends are great, but festival rumours spread quickly, true or false.

Thing is, Friday evening was the best weather of the weekend. When ZZ Top and Foals were on the Pyramid it was lovely. That bit doesn’t make sense either.

The only wet day that year was the Sunday where it drizzled all day up until I saw Coldplay.

That’s true. It was such a bad year because it slammed it down for a hard week before the festival - the event itself wasn’t so bad.

Yes! I remember turning up on Thursday (I risked getting a coach ticket) giving up on slogging to my friends camp as I was so sweaty & had had enough.

Camped next to some lovely people I am still friends with, they didn’t believe I actually had any friends at the fest but that mud walking in I had to stop 3/4 times & I only had two bags.

The fest was fine, maybe a bit of drizzle during TDCC that last 20 mins.

It was both, Thom and Johnny in 2010 doing the hits and then the full band in 2011 playing King of Limbs in full.

There was a bit of a shower early on Friday (I was watching NAO on The Park) but that aside it was alright until the Sunday. Nobody would have cancelled on the Friday because of the bad weather.

Sun was out Friday afternoon when we were watching ZZ Top

So it was, we actually found a bit of grass to sit on, with a waterproof jacket as a blanket, just over Bellas bridge. One thing I learnt that year was that the mud actually gets worse as it begins to dry out.  It goes from just being wet to being thick and capable of swallowing wellies and young children. Heading up from the other stage to the rail track at about one am I took a fall right into it. Thankfully the glasto spirit of my fellow revellers took over and instead of helping me I was serenaded with a chorus of Hefellova. Oh how I laughed.

I’m sure Emily said that acts will be involved that have meant something to the festival over the years. So I’ve no doubt there’ll be some gems in amongst the normal line up (which is always great anyway). 

So... Kaiser Chiefs?

Big Theif are playing Open'er Fesival in July (Poland)

Chance they'll appear on The Park? 

I’d be really surprised if they weren’t at glasto this year. Just seems obvious.

The daft thing was that I had spent the previous minute or so advising folk all in various degrees of intoxication how to make  their way up the slope, pointing out the less muddy parts at the side acting as some sort of elder statesman experienced in the art of mud navigation.

I think we all have our methods of not falling over or getting stuck in the glue ... mine is a slight twist when i step ... or a stick has also helped .... no idea if it works or im just crazy ? :)
