Nope!

How are we going to cure you of your problem?

Guessing here, but early October about five years ago.  Invite was a Banksy Free bar and food . The food was the pick of the traders at the festival. The entertainment was karaoke with

Keith Allen

Correct! He came on dressed as a matador riding a pantomime horse. When the horse exited he said 'thanks to Mani and Bez for bringing me on there' (the only recorded evidence of him ever saying anything even slightly funny) and did the rap. Any of that ring any bells for @stuartbert two hats?!

Yeah, I remember the conversation going something along the lines of 

"Is John Barnes going to come on to do the rap?...Was that John Barnes?"

"No, it was Keith Allen."

"Are you sure it wasn't John Barnes? Why would Keith Allen do it?"

"It was Keith Allen. He was just in front of you"

"Was it John Barnes?"

"No"

"It should have been John Barnes..."

 

I was somewhat worse for wear.

OK Pilton Pop Pickers.

In 2005, what famously stole the show during Kaiser Chiefs?

An easy one so I can go to bed and you can carry on when someone gets it right.

Night night.

Correct.

I could have worded that better as that was a great show.

Ricky Wilson is a master frontman imo. I think he knew dino was getting all of the attention, so he took it from the crowd and shoved it backstage for a few numbers. "Fuck off 'saurous, this is my show".

Not sure if it was wearing a tie or whether RW gave it his tie (I'd misremembered it as being a scarf before skimming through the below clip last night). Think it may be edited as I couldn't find the point where he pulls it from the crowd.

Wish I could find a decent clip of RWs turn as The Artilleryman from War Of The Worlds. Totally hams it up and steals the show (though he doesn't quite hit that high note al la David Essex).

Over to you @Homer. Think I'm going back to bed.

RW def took his tie off and put it on the dinosaur. From my memory, that is from the same day as New Order (same stage too obvs).

Okay, stick with 2005 then: who were the three Other Stage headliners that year? I can name all three off the top of my head (plus the subs too I reckon) and I only saw one of them, so should be doable.

Fatboy Slim, Razorlight, Ian Brown

You are correct! I only saw a bit of Fatboy Slim (the subs were Royksopp, Kasabian and The Las).

A quick google says it was definitely King’s meadow. You can see the stone circle in the background of the photos

I can't be arsed to argue.  However the Eavii's Glastonbury 50 book says of 2007: "The Green Fields featured the legendary Banksy art installation Portaloo Sunset."

Whoever fancies setting a question over to you.

Sorry for giving you a hard time.  It's a weird one where it seems to have been confidently billed with very many different names.  But it was in King's Meadow! :D  Anyway, here's a song about the festival, and possibly the same one as the toilets.

I reckon @parsonjack gets first refusal.

Ooh controversial.  It was definitely in King's Meadow rather than generic 'Green Fields' though.

OK....here's  a new one.  Who is this and how is he relevant to the Festival?

To be fair, last time I saw a defined map of "The Green Fields" (would have been in the programme one year), the Kings Meadow was definitely included.

So I'd say both are correct, but Kings Meadow is more specific (and definitely where it was).
