I was at The Jackson's and I wouldn't say I regret it but they were shite. I enjoyed the end of Alt-J. Really though I consider King Gizzard my Saturday night headliners.

They were not shite, I went with low expectations but was pleasantly  surprised. Where I was there was a good atmosphere and after a shit day it was the pickup I needed.

I was at Pheonix. Had a bit of a row with my friend because they were maybe 45mins late starting because of technical issues and she wanted to meet up with our friends at foo's. I told her to go meet them herself but she wouldnt. Too bad for her. Loved every second but eventually gave in and caught the end of foos... wish I stayed at Pheonix (regrets but no regrets).

Me too. I’ve banged on about it loads on here but that Crows Nest set was a 10 on 10 for me. Absolutely mind bending.

Guess so, I had a really bad day, made lots of bad choices, had a major attack of the Glastonbury blues, and they were just what I needed. Either way, they weren’t shite. Just not what you were hoping for.

I can agree to that, glad you enjoyed it.

When ask about his 80th birthday he said that he was doing something big.... His birthday is in June... He is also touring but it was that something big.. Maybe reading to much into things.. 

Perhaps a big Welsh homecoming show as he's not announced one on this tour?

Got a lot of love for him but would be a bit of an odd booking, where do you place him as the legends slot is already taken. The legends slot is well publicised as the 4th headliner, be a bit odd to have another legends slot crowbared in

Maybe the ‘one legend slot per day’ fantasy is coming true before our eyes...

Yea BUT as I said before.. If Em E is right you could have a legend spot on both pyramid and other stages.. Long shot.. But hey life's a long shot..

Four months too early.

Stick it in the 'Touring Around Glastonbury' thread

Didn't realise that thread was for people touring near to the farm rather than around the time of the festival...

Also, Greta turning up would be far from a surprise.

Would it?  The Pyramid afternoon speaker slot is well established, and i'd say given the festival's ethos i'd be majorly surprised if she didn't fill it this year.  She's not exactly the Dalai Lama...

I bet you shook the presents under the tree before Christmas day, so when the 25th came round, you could congratulate yourself on a correct prediction.

I don't even snoop on my presents, despite my partner being epically shit at hiding them.  If Pete Doherty had my willpower, The Libertines might have become the greatest British band since The Beatles.

But away from my desire to maintain surprises even when it would be easier not to, I genuinely believe that most people with more than a passing knowledge of the festival and the type of acts/people who've appeared in recent years would have predicted that Greta would appear this year a long time back.  Maybe I'm wrong, but that's how I see it - She's appeared on so many people's predicted lineups and posters on here.

Said it before, saying it again. Greta to open the Pyramid on the Friday leading into The 1975 (revealed a la Libertines)

They ain’t that close.

 

But yes I think our Greta will be at the festival this year.

Also, where is that user that accused us of supporting Greta and it being a version of hitler youth?

I guess she has to make a decision based on the generally not good impact of festivals (yes I know Glastonbury is making steps in improving that ) versus the impact she will be able to make in crowd education .... she also Travels in environmentally friendly ways so it would also depend if this was possible ...
