Frighteningly that was precisely the word that came into my mind as soon as I saw the pic. 

We're  on some kind of psychic level dude...

Or both with the same juvenile sense of humour. Looking forward to seeing you next week pal! 😎

Very quiet in here for 3 days out. Beautiful day in sunny belfast

It's essentially good ground, but weather is now key. It's sort of a battle of threads, weather thread winning when ground is good and nothing to talk about but potential impending doom, this thread winning when weather is already kack and we need to know how bad it is.

So me and small horse dog have been mooching about the village and down to Marys gate area.  I think he was reflecting on the beauty of living in the moment when he rolled in the fox shit. That was after eating rabbit shit which apparently is rich in vitamin B, so maybe he has a point with that one. Or maybe he is just a minging fecker.

The weather today has been like summer, who'd have thought? It is really busy everywhere and he has to stay on the long lead to avoid becoming a bonnet mascot. The ground is hard, plenty of dust and the grass is starting to go a bit brown in places where it is short.  Looking across site the hill behind Pennards is looking dry. Despite the warmth, no buzzards were thermalling so the air isn't rising enough for them.  It will be alright people, it will take something pretty biblical to wreck the site, the weather witch has done her stuff and we are looking forwards to sweaty pits everytime we get "hands in the air".

Is that a black hole opening up?

What would that do to the weather?

Black hole appeared.

But really to reduce sound bleed so they can be clearer/louder

Back from a wander

all very dry, took a tent peg out and ground nice a firm over pennards and pyramid camping.

with the wood chip preparations that have been made it will take a lot of rain to make it into a mud bath.

suggest pack lots of sun cream, shorts and trainers, but take wellies and leave in the car 😀😀😀  

its going to be a fab Glastonbury, sitting on the grass in the sunshine drinking a cold cider.  Roll on Wednesday when you can all come and play.

This is why I love this site, and this festival. Ace.

Finally arrived for the duration. Slightly hairy journey towing an ex Chipperfields 1931 five tonne caravan with a 1956 lorry but we made it.

The ground is looking fine. Restrictions have been lifted regarding driving on the grass in most places which is a particularly good sign. Looking at the weather forecast I genuinely don't think that anyone has anything to worry about. It's going to be epic. 

Will do a short video in the morning

Happy days.

There were complaints last time that WH was too quiet, depending where you stood. I noticed this a tad during Avalanches... but I just walked forward a bit. Apparently The Jackson 4 was ruined by it being really quiet. I didn't notice any problems during the other two headliners there - Dizzee and Justice - but we were fairly far forward/may have got lucky.
