Celebrity spotting 2020

Recommended Posts

I stood next to Steve Lamacq (and possibly Tom Ravenscorft, but we weren't totally convinced on that) during Idles set at The Park. He spent most of it texting on his phone! I can confirm that he is very small and very skinny!

I saw Romeo from Magic Numbers in pretty much exactly the same place, just before Kurt Vile came on, unsuccessfully trying to bum rizla papers off people!

Was behind Emilia Clarke and her mate walking from Park to rail tracks area.  Think she can go fairly incognito as she doesn't look much like her most famous character without the wig and stuff which must be nice.

Saw Nish a few times with his big bushy beard (which is very suitable for the local area).

Mark Bowen and Adam Devonshire from Idles hanging out with their respective families and friends in The Park.

I swear unless i'm with certain friends who spot these people a mile away walking around us I tend to not notice anyone at all unless it's really obvious like Jarvis Cocker.

Saw Michael Eavis in his jeep at Avalon while Blue Aeroplanes were on. 

 

To to turn it on it’s head, I had 1 lady insist I was F1’s Mark Webber up in the park 😂

Maybe it was you stood next to me at the pyramid in ‘17 and not mark webber then! My ‘celebs’ I spot always turn out to be not celebs.

How much of a celebrity do you have to be to not have to bother with refreshing like mad on a Sunday morning in October? And how many tickets get taken out of the pot for them?

I saw Jo Brand. My husband saw Michael and Emily Eavis. I'll be honest I could have seen most of the people mentioned in this thread and I wouldn't notice. They would have to be pretty distinctive looking for me to spot them as I am terrible with faces anyway.

No but I shaved his head down the middle and squirted tomato sauce on his head to give him a Gorbachev 👍

Can also confirm we saw Martin in the Green Fields on Wednesday  - he was in a white shirt, looking very happy with life. As were we.

Caroline Lucas was my my only other famous spot, also in the Green Fields as we decided between Jon Hopkins and Fatboy Slim on Friday

Me and my friend went to the craft fields on Thursday to have a go at making a silver bangle. The workshop is a group of 4... Martin was in our group of 4. My ma is as jealous as hell! 🤣 He was actually a really nice guy who obviously loves the place as much as we do

I think it might have helped that we just chatted to him normally like we didn't have a fucking clue who he was. He too likes to get pissed at his tent and I think was quite amused at my JD consumption whilst trying to engrave a bracelet! 🤣

Ditto.  The only reason I recognised Lammo is because it's hard not to look twice at a tiny ickle Skeletor-alike

Yes. I worked in HMV on Market Street in Manchester when I first left university and I am sort of a football fan (enough to know any big players) I served David Beckham and was still unsure it was him as I though he might just be a lookalike (everyone at the time was trying to look like him!) Whereas I recognised Peter Schmeichel because he was very distinctive looking and huge. I reckon I only spotted Jo Brand because she was coming out of West Holts hospitality. I had a few other people come in and people would tell me they were celebrities but they were all Corrie stars and meant nothing to me.

I think there's something wrong with me, this was my 5th Glastonbury and I don't think I've ever spotted anyone famous without having them pointed out to me. Plenty of times I'm with people and they notice and I recognise the person, but never myself.

Phil Jupitus just before Acid Mother's Temple
Paul Foot at... somewhere I was drunk
Jo Whiley introducing The Killers on the sound desk, followed by being tapped on the shoulder by specialized security half way through their set who were snaking her through the crowd to the front. I got a high five. What a godly looking woman upclose.....

I think I’m in that boat, been about 8 times and only ever saw Michael Eavis drive by in a Land Rover. It amazes me seeing people who’ve spotted about 20 different celebs!

Lauren Laverne walked past me at Other Stage and appreciated my outfit and fan snapping. ❤️

I was thinking that, surprises me there are any tickets left at all for us normal folk!
