Ive always advocated for a biggie on Friday - particularly Friday night. I prefer to start hot and either go from there or gently slide down a degree or two to normality/reality. Energy levels just arent there on the Sunday. Most people have one eye on the journey home at that stage... tonnes of people have spent the day packing and are on the dry for the night.

The trend above with the significant focus on Sunday confirms my thinking that Fri has a tinge of "bummer" off it.

Still loads I want to see on Friday - IDLES, hopkins or Tame Impala, Comet is Coming will all be great.

Maybe a bit slower earlier on in the day but Avalon is daytime is strong and I may be keen for Mac Demarco.

 

There's a lot of the bigger stage acts which won't appeal to a lot of people on this forum, (especially earlier on in the day) -  either from being a bit bland or are no longer at their popularity peak - Snow Patrol, Two Door,  The Wombats, Vaccines, Lumineers, Bastille, Tom Odell. Even Sheryl Crow...

It's a weird one. No single act that I'm extremely exited to see but loads that will keep me happy. I think I have more clashes on the Friday so will go for that.

Well this is just about the perfect situation for Glastonbury if you ask me.  The festival is too big / diverse / magical / random to be a slave to a timetable and must see bands, so it's nice to have the freedom not to absolutely have to be anywhere.  But knowing that there's always something on you will enjoy is golden ?

I mean, how can Friday possibly be barren when yer man Craig Charles is available to fill any day time gaps in the schedule? 

I'm actually worried I won't make it down to see him! Yak, Goat girl, BCUC, La Payara, Shy FX, Sheryl....clash away

Exactly. Craig Charles is a perfect choice for any occasion, hopefully I'll catch him but it's always the problem with acts on at numerous times - I always think that I'll be able to catch the next set and never do!

Friday is looking nice for me at the moment  - Shy FX / Sheryl Crow - MYBABY - Lauren Hill - IDLES /Morcheeba - Jon Hopkins - South East Corner

Saturday is pretty tasty too with Carl Cox - Janet Jackson - Neneh Cherry - Kate Tempest - The Chems / Hot Chip - FatBoy Eats Everything / Jon Hopkin DJ set - HAAI 

 

I think sunday is going to be a bit of a write off for me!

Had a scan for a relevant thread and can't seem to see one, but people have mentioned clashfinder a few times here so figure it's the best place for it. Is anyone able to remove/add stages on their clashfinder? Every time I select the ones I want it just says "showing all days and stages".

Friday easily the weakest for me. First time ever I’m skipping headliners and sub-headliners to hit the SE Corner hard. Actually don’t mind as Thursday arrival so Friday is for exploring with a few stops.

 

Saturday and Sunday are brilliant-Saturday probably just shaded it for the Jungle-Hot Chip/Chems finish.

I’ve done a brief schedule with loads of different coloured highlighters for now as is customary however I very rarely stick to it.

Sunday inspiration is very much needed though.  I’m struggling to identify anything up to about 15:00 so any ideas/suggestions for Sunday are appreciated - I can then go take listen beforehand

I'm going Saturday because it has The Chems and The Cat Empire. Could've easily been Friday though for West Holts alone. 

Sunday I'm surprisingly bare of acts I need to see.

Every single day I have clashes almost all day so plenty for me to see. Think the headliners for Saturday and Sunday are much stronger for me but that being said I do still have numerous options on Friday as well. 

I don't have loads of must sees just loads of I'd really like to see's which is making clashes much harder because there are a lot of acts that are pretty much level pegging. Will probably end up making decisions based on stages rather than acts. There seem to be a few acts between Pyramid and Other that could cause carnage and thankfully I'm not really interested in a lot of them so I'll probably pick things that are away from the potential huge crowds.

Saturday for me, flippin amazing!

Squid > The Proclaimers > Cut Capers > Beans on Toast > Ezra Collective > Fontaines DC > Pip Blom > Stella Donnelly > Kurt Vile > Kate Tempest > Chemical Brothers > end of Hot Chip > Fatboy Eats Everything > Faithless DJ set > Leftfield DJ set > fall over! 

I know I’ll end up only seeing about half of those but it’s fun to plan anyway!

My clashfinder reckons Friday, although Sunday is the only day with an act I really wanna see that I don't feel I can see elsewhere easily.

I found it wasn't updating for me either, but after a refresh it was fine.

When you say Top 2 what does that mean? are you just saying Pyramid ?

I hardly ever go there anyway nowadays. Always more intriguing stuff elsewhere

If anyone knows if you can reorder the stages in Clashfinder though, that'd be handy. Would like William's Green higher up if poss, but can't see a way to do it.

Could you not do what I will be doing and sneak off part way through a headliner to the Truth stage to see them?

I am at Hopkins so easier to slide to the SE and not miss so much. Gotta somehow get out of SE to the Park for Comet is Coming which is going to be me swimming against the tide as per normal

The top two stages yeh. Theyre as bad as theyve been in over a decade IMO.

guess it is what you like, but Yea nothing really for me. Although, Reckon Stormzy will be brilliant . I have dates elsewhere though that are must sees. Chems will be brilliant but they have done it many times and I have been there

I normally prefer it away from the main 2 at headliner time though.

This is a good shout in many respects - I was initially hoping to be at Hopkins (although, the Friday night clash fest that no one else seems to appreciate has made that a challenge), and that would put the ball in his favour I guess. What time do you reckon you'd need to leave to get a decent spot for IDLES?

The three major worries are:

1. If I'm going to be too spandangled by then to want to get in-amongst it (or worse still, forget to go). Was intending to take it a bit easy in the day on Friday until at least just after their set

2. If it will be rammed. This thread with everyone hating on the main five stages makes me think it might be (although, these people who hate the Friday lineup presumably also aren't IDLES fans)

3. If I will be able to find my friends after. Looking at the amazing night time lineups elsewhere, Friday looks set to be the non-SE Corner night. I can't see any of them wanting to trek down there for that....

I know everyone has different tastes, but this day in particular did seem to stand out as light...

Do people not do this every year, regardless of lineup...? I'm intrigued
