Why do people take such issue with flags? At the distance it will impact you then you are barely seeing whoever is on stage anyway. Also I think it adds to the atmosphere and looks good- wouldn't look like Glasto without them imo

I've no idea - I like them!

We should probably have a discussion about it.

Someone should start a topic.

Maybe even a poll!

OK so your point is that from a distance you can't see the stage Yea.. 

1..With flags and NOT to far from the stage 

2...roughly same distance from same stage with out flags..

Flags at stages are out of order. Pure selfish, dick-ish 'look at me' behaviour spoiling the enjoyment of others.

Think, how many flags do you see at stages that are not televised?

Is that second picture of the Pyramid stage the legendary David Koresh and the Branch Davidian’s set circa 1992 / 93?

I think we reached peak flag in about 2014, and the last two fests have had a marked decline to the point where there are now only a few knocking around most of the time and they do add a bit of character. They used to really aggravate me, especially a lot of the really obnoxious, racist undertones and outright sexist anti-Kanye flags that all the edgelords seemed to bring in 2015, but these days I find it useful to use Men With Ven as a landmark when it's the only one around.

"TAKE ALL YOUR SHIT HOME AND DON'T LITTER YOU FUCKING CRETINS"

I need something snappier though surely, for a flag.

 

Could make it a banner.

2009 was even worse IMHO.

i can see both sides of the flag issue (when the wind blows)...

...no, seriously, the only way i found my team in the Chemmies with three pints in hand was cos they happened to be standing under the fat pig flag - i left to get my round in (showing my age) and there was practically no-one there but when i got back it was like Wembley 1966 cup final . Got to say, nearly everyone in the crowd was amazing and helped me out
