Beyonce was incredible, really really smashed it. I do sort of wish I'd seen QOTSA but none of my would have come and I like to stick together on the Sunday. You couldn't help but get caught up in it at the time though, and I've had plenty of times before and since to see QOTSA 

(Saw her a couple of times at the arena when I worked there and didn't think much of it, that said work or glasto...)

 

Still cant believe Radiohead played Let Down. Apologies to people around me and my sister for my worryingly teaching her the other part so we could duet the finale. Beautiful stuff though. Maybe my favourite pyramid headliner I've seen.

You refering to 2017? The set list was just outrageous. I still cannot believe the encores. Truly magnificent.

Let Down is a bit of a blur in my head which is a shame, I think I was so overcome with emotion wheh it started I had a brain prolapse.

I still think Dolly had the biggest crowd in that field post-super fence. 

 

Wasn't it recorded as the biggest ever, with The Rolling Stones second?

I'm also pretty sure that I read somewhere that Royal Blood in 2015 had the biggest crowd to stage ratio seen. I may have dreamt that up though

Yeah it was fucking incredible, I hadn't seen them for 6 years and was a much bigger fan at that point and it felt like they wrote the set list for me.

That Friday night was horrible. Couldn’t even make it to the end of Primal Scream before going back to the tent. 

So so cold and wet.

I really enjoyed U2 , but the heavy rain stopped it from being a truly classic set. Such a shame. I remember during the encore, most of the people around me were ready to leave, myself included. It was my first glasto, I'd stupidly turned up without waterproofs and I was soaked.

I love Gorillaz, but I don't get what happened with that slot. If they had done it on the Humanz/Now Now tour, it would have been recieved so much better. They were incredible on that tour

I still think that Plastic Beach was their best album.  I was well up for that gig, it was my mate's only night not working and the audience was....flat.  We were surrounded by people moaning loudly and leaving while we tried to maintain our enthusiasm.  I was gutted, so many guest spots, Lou fucking Reed.  Still they left in droves and carried any hope of atmosphere with them.

Yeah, I felt bad for the lad, he'd had the most triumphant set in years closing out the previous year, came to the festival's call when bono and theboys fell through and it was just so flat.

Thoroughly enjoyed that. Who's throwing on one of the highlight shows on the iplayer now?

2015 for me... literally no idea who played. That's normal tho. 

 

I literally only really remember 94. Since then it's all a blur. And I mean a blur. Not.. Yeah

They killed it by huge pauses (stage dark, no sound) between numbers. People wanted to party and that was just killing the vibe, so a lot just uped and left, including me.

I watched Kanye (some of it) out of genuine curiosity as I’m not really a fan and this is what he did too. Absolutely ruined it for me

I went 2014 since the Saturday of that was my favourite line up day ever. It's all a bit bloody good though really isnt it (and some of all of it a  bit bloody shit, let's not kid ourselves)

Worst use of the dog picture yet.

I did it because they only got 10 seconds and I'm a die-hard fan, did I get the wrong end of the stick? :D

I said on the twitters that it was the best example of what you watch on TV not being the same as what you experience if you're there, am I close to the mark? Link to my twitter ramblings... https://twitter.com/Simpo_B/status/1142553045861093377

You the Simon says... wish were about for 94? 

I bang on about it and bore whoever is listening about 94. The first one is always the best. And at the time. 17 years old I loved the levellers. And orbital on the Saturday. Sound systems all over the place. No curfews. Crazy times.

You've reached out to some cool people on Twitter this evening.
