It's not just about getting in, it's about it being unpleasantly crowded when I am in. Not my bag.

Yeah I think this is the only way and there has always been at least one headliner I want to see more... maybe when we get the full times. 

 

Fair enough. I've rarely done it in the daytime before (bar Thurs evening), so tempted to pop in on the Friday (if nothing better turns up) and have a nose around around the whole Craig Charles thing. Usually go over that way for the improv comedy on Friday anyway.

Yeah what time is Craig Charles normally on? Might head in for that.

Last time he was on for about 4 hours, 1-5pm I think? 

We stopped by for about an hour, was good fun but too much else to see to stay for it all

Cool might actually attempt this this year. Seen him a couple of times elsewhere but never in shangri la. Love his shows though.

I stayed for the whole thing, by the end they were dismantling his decks around him.

Yeah, he usually does long long sets, so I was banking on being able to pop in on that and go for a stroll. If you do clash Friday, Norman Jay is doing similar on Sat (the Sunday takeover didn't look as appealing, though I can't remember what it is exactly).

Good info thanks!

Yeah as others have said it isn’t just getting in it is how busy it is when you are in. I have had fun down there (Hot Chip Prince tribute Geonysis and the hell stage spring to mind as they were a bit more open) but also seems like a bit of a mission at times.

i’m fine With pyramid crowds but away from a main stage I like to wander until I find something I love and that seems harder to do there after dark?

Weighing up the announcement for this year and the change from Earache Express to Scum. There's been ne mention of Shi-TV so presuming that's gone. Was Shi-TV next to Earache Express and if so are they taking over the combined area to build Scum?

1 - 4:30 last year. We got there at about half 1 & it was very busy. Was all day. I would definitely recommend it. If you were only to do an hour or 2, do the 2nd half. The atmosphere should be bouncing

Norman Jay on the Saturday in Shangri-La in 2013 was one of my favourite Glastonbury afternoon’s sun shining, great music and “Good Times”. Hoping for a repeat this year

Does Craig Charles keep to his funk and soul style sets (like his 6music show) or is it more of a dance mix?

Funk and soul, albeit with a heavy emphasis on re-edits to make it more dancey.  Ironically he constantly puts his headphones to his ears and twiddles knobs on his mixer even though he isn't actually doing anything that requires him to do so.

Great fun though.

Great. Think I'll go along as his radio show is the soundtrack to my Saturday evening kitchen cook dance. 

TBF if I was a DJ I'd do the same. When I'm at work I sometimes pretend to adjust the camera settings just so the client thinks they are getting their moneys worth!

If you like the radio show I thoroughly recommend his live sets. Having been in 2017 he is still one of my top five must sees for this year

Yeah I have seen him DJ a few times in London and he is a lot of fun. I love his radio show too. Just never quite made it to a Glasto set (except once in Silver Hayes, but it was too rammed so we left).

Shangri-la last time was busy but not unpleasantly so, think we got there a bit early though

The Keith Flint tribute DJ set has been cancelled, as people from the band not finding it appropriate and upsetting - which is a shame as think it's very fitting and won't be the only tribute over the weekend

It didn't really sit right with me the amount of 'Keith Flint Tribute' club nights that popped up the day after he passed away.

Not sure that a DJ set at Glastonbury is quite as bad though considering he's probably not getting much out of it anyway.

Don't see the issue here but looks like someone from the band (Liam) may have put a stop to it?

Just where does he get the energy from?!

Plus he's presumably a friend of Keith's.
