Wish I’d seen ... instead of...

Recommended Posts

Stormzy instead of Interpol.

Slowthai as planned rather than lounging in the shade.

I wish I’d seen Lizzo now, but did enjoy Johnny Marr so don’t feel too bad about that.

Stormzy instead of Jon Hopkins. I think that's going to go down as my number 1 Glastonbury regret ever...

Chems or Hot Chip instead of WuTang. Totally shoulda just sacked my mates off and gone by myself!

The Comet is Coming instead of Lauryn Hill. And then squeezed in a bit of Maribou State before legging it over to IDLES

I don't regret any of the choices I made because they were the choices I needed to make but I do know for the future that if Chemical Brothers are ever up against Hot Chip again I will be at Hot Chip. An artist with no crowd interaction just isn't for me but I'd never done it and always wondered if I would enjoy it. I didn't hate it but it lacks something for me.

Regret being too lazy to walk up to the park for idles who looked amazing when I watched the highlights.

Suspected I'd find the Cure dull, but went because my girlfriend wanted to see them. To rub salt into wounds, not only did I find them dull, so did she. I pretty much liked the headliner at every other stage too on Sunday night. Rex orange county, streets, Janelle or Chris would have probably all been more enjoyable

Stormzy over Tame Impala. The former looked great on TV, although it still would’ve been a lot of songs I’m not massively into to be honest. But so much more upbeat and a big moment for grime and the festival so definitely the better choice compared to all the slow songs on the Other.

Lizzo same reasons as @FuzzyDunlop, my group were at Janet but was always planning to swerve that. 

Would say anyone instead of Lauren Hill but I’m glad I went as I’ll never see her again and would’ve always been intrigued by her.

This ^ . Enjoyed Tame Impala but in hindsight not the best choice that evening.

Anyone But the Cure.  Christ I was bored after 20 mins and by that time I couldn’t get to The Streets or CATQ - ended up down SE corner

Comet is Coming instead of Lauryn Hill, the bonus of sacking Lauryn off early was being near the front for IDLES. 

Didn't fancy Darble > Park > John Peel on the Saturday because of the heat, so missed the Vampire Weekend early slot but saw them on Sunday.

Lizzo istead of Janet. What the fuck was I thinking.

To be honest my brain was a bit fried in the heat.

Anything instead of the aimless mooching I did on Thursday. Absolutely wasted a day and night there.

Wish I'd prepared better and seen Jungle instead of going back to my tent for evening gear.

Stormzy instead of Jon Hopkins. No reflection on him, just with hindsight something more upbeat on Friday night would have been good.

I didn't go to the festival this year, but saw Wu Tang Clan in 2011 - they were awesome. Haven't seen much in other threads on EF about them, were they really that bad as West Holts headliners? Thought they would have done a pretty credible job. Did they pull a big crowd? Thought they would have considering they're hip-hop royalty

I'm not a massive WuTang fan, but I did actually see them back in May in Manchester as I got the tickets for a friend for his birthday. I was pleasantly surprised with the set, and thought they were pretty amazing - so when my friend chose them over the chems, I didn't argue. But, they were not a patch on the set from Manchester. They just didn't seem to be that into it, the crowd was thin, and they did very minimal audience interaction. They totally left out the bit with the ODB cover, and although the still  dropped the Beatles remix, somehow it fell flat...maybe as it just came out of nowhere, rather than getting a bit of an intro. I dunno, to me it just seemed like they really didn't want to be there, which is a shame, as the Manchester show was completely the opposite.

Thought Idles was dreadful, though I know I’m in the minority there.

Sharon Van Etten instead of Liam Gallagher. Stayed with the group rather than just going off on my own. Got tickets to see her next month but watching on iPlayer seems like that performance was special.
