Was this on Thursday? I recall him walking past me, repeatedly shouting words to the effect of “if there are any undercover police officers or security guards, please stay away from me. I am not carrying any suspicious substances or items. Thank you”

(can’t remember the exact quote, really hope someone recalls)

When I walked past he was just getting taken to the ground by the police and was screaming "Someone call the police I'm being assaulted!"

Carrie Underwood during her set:

 

’It’s so amazing to be playing on the same stage Dolly Parton did a few years back... and to mentioned in the same sentence as her is such an honour!’

In what I'm pretty sure was BEAM in the Greenpeace Fields (the wooden ring thing with bee projections all over it) late Wednesday night/early Thursday morning when a seriously off his chump bloke wandered in, only to immediately turn and gtfo of there whilst shouting, in one of the broadest scouse accents I've ever heard: "Seriously, SWERVE IT!"

--

Came across a bloke dressed as Noah (fake beard, robes, crook) by the toilets at the back of the Other Field during Dave. When I noticed his lack of shoes and the subsequent state of his feet I asked how he was managing without wearing shoes. He looked at me as if I was asking the stupidest question in the world and said completely deadpan and totally seriously: "Noah doesn't wear shoes."

Fairly certain when walking across Bella's Bridge at one point I overheard someone claiming to be selling Women's World Cup final tickets.

Was it Billy McFarland or one of his chum(p)s?

Has NME been snooping on here again? I saw an article with a similar name earlier. Didn't have time to check it though.

He was part of the circus field, pretending to be a dodgy tout (he was offering tickets to see the headliners etc)

the backstage one, 'twas the bridge that got me thinking about it.  I think I met you a few years ago when I was absolutely hammered and vaguely recognised you!  

 

As long as Im not going (more) mad!

No, I missed them, got distracted - watched Broken Bones Matilda and Jurassic 5, Yamaya (I think anyway!) and some of Flamingods!

 I really liked Broken Bones Matilda though, great duo!

Whilst admiring the subtlety of our friendly Liverpudlian police dodger as he raged about the necessity for the cops to stay away from him, a group of scouse girls walked past me and one said “see, it’s fu**ing nobheads like him who give us a bad reputation”.

"you see that big bollard on the hill over there? That's a really good reference point to get you back to your tent when you're off your tits at 6 in the morning" 

Reducing the proud history of Glastonbury Tor to a compass for the smashed in one short sentence.

From an (I'd guess at) mid thirties woman (i.e. not a child):

"There's seagulls here! Why are there seagulls here? We're nowhere near the sea."

Wrong on at least a couple of levels. And, where in the UK don't you get gulls? I want to retire there. They're a 'kin pest 'round our way.

Made me giggle anyway.

Saturday night on my way through Big Ground back to Tom's field a young bloke asked me "excuse me mate where is the pyramid stage i need to catch Stormzy"

I pointed at the big stage in front of him and politely reminded him that it was saturday night and Stormzy played "last night"

His response: "fuck I need to quit drugs"

Whilst walking away shouting at himself for missing 2 days of Glastonbury.

Ha I was in there for that, I was the very wobbly guy to the left wearing a pale tie-dye sort of shirt. That was the only time I managed to catch them the whole weekend and it blew me away, top three set of the weekend. Can't believe they were wearing gillie suits and not sweating out in there.
