A great cure for the insomniacs more like, nothing upsets me more than watching that wet flannel flop around a stage for an hour.

no need for upset .. plenty of places to go ... and a lie in is an option ....:)

I haven't even got a ticket yet! I'd endure 2 hours of Coldplay for one though! 😂

Yes, apparently the other stage crew were surprised by the weather.🙄

The area at the front of the stage was a quagmire and they wouldn’t let folk in that area until they got woodchips and straw put down.  Michael drove up in his faithful land rover and took charge. Didn’t they say that there wasn’t any wood chips left in the south of England, the whole stock was in the festival site.? There’s a huge pile of the stuff now up at the farm, near Mary’s gate. James were really good. No sit down! But finished with laid.

My point is they didn’t even start putting wood chip down until after James were supposed to start. It had been raining for days, yet nobody thought to do anything about the quagmire until then?

True, I remember the late arrival of the chips and Michael asking why they weren’t already down. James were worth the wait though!

I thought that was tied up with the whole "all the wood chip in the country is at Worthy Farm" stuff. I.e. they were struggling to get hold of enough wood chips.

So theres a few name that have been thrown around before but have now gone cold. Of the big pop acts that could steal the day on the pyramid who would people like to see as a surprise lineup addition. I'm thinking along the lines of Missy, Timberlake, Pink, Gwen...

Faithless on the Other stage. Surely played some of the greatest sets of all time at Glastonbury, would only be right for the 50th.

Would love to see The XX as well

Faithless aren't a live entity anymore unfortunately. You just get Sister Bliss DJing under the Faithless moniker.

Missy Elliot doesn’t seem to be coming to Europe

Justin Timberlake is a headliner

I don’t think Pink is touring Europe

Gwen Stefani is very much still on.

That would make it a very significant big surprise if it happened then

Not many people that would reform for a one off I suppose, although it is the 50th....

I remember hearing that on worthy fm. Michael arrived and magically so did a tractor pulling a load of wood chips.

If only there was a way of evenly distributing the crowd of people in a field

The new walkway down the middle from the back does a lot of good here.  If anything it could do with a connecting walkway running perpendicular to help the same issues from the sides and feed people towards the middle more.  People respected it on the whole and it provides an excellent midpoint escape area for anyone who gets anxious or panicky in crowds.  On the whole one of the best improvements of recent years for me.

I’ve seen their kitchen table (can’t remember the wood involved), and the rest of the kitchen too.

As long as it’s made of a sustainable wood, don’t want Greta Thunberg sitting down for a cuppa before her pyramid opening speech in June at a b and q plastic laminate  table

First year I went, 1983. Obviously pre-mobile phones, there were a couple of phones you could queue up to use, and I ended up in the farmhouse kitchen using the landline there (seems unbelievable now). My memory of it is rather vague, but I remember Jean was there, and their little girl...
