Awesome responses! Another place I’ve not found yet is the tunnel, I think it goes under the train tracks.

The year U2 played there was a rumour of them doing a secret set later that night, a few weeks/ month before planned. Neil knew about it because I remember pleading like a child to tell me. 

Actually maybe it was first year when they cancelled. 

Any remember this..?

2011 there was a rumour that The Wombles were U2 in disguise.

never queue up for anything at Glasto. It's not worth it.

That tunnel saved me on the Saturday last year as it was about the only place on site I wasn't melting

Did Mavis Staples's luggage ever show up?

And did she pay for the Glasto t shirt she wore on stage?

I seem to recall her saying they were given them.

I actually bought one yesterday from the official store cos I now think of it is a Mavis shirt. Despite it looking like you're wearing a target.

What a great morning.

I went to the Wombles and confirm they were better than U2.

I now know why Micheal Eavis has his beard styled in his iconic fashion. 
 

I’ve been growing a lockdown beard and ‘tache and the amount of food and drink I’ve got caught in my bristles has been unbelievable. Soup and wine in particular are very messy. I’m fine drinking from a bottle or can but as soon as I try to drink from anything wide brimmed I end up with liquid dripping from around my chops. 
 

So in order for the Eavis to maintain proper decorum while entertaining the higher class of guest he needs to keep his facial hair away from his mouth.

I sent a text to a mate during the set saying similar.

"Could teach U2 a thing or two", I think I phrased it.

It was a bit of a let down, rain & cold that evening, plus we went too hard the previous two days it made an excuse to head to bed early as we were knackered from mud (great decision as the sun came out Sunday). Plus I realised I only know about 5 songs of theirs. They weren’t bad though?

I met Professor Schales from Fresh Meat too.

Fresh Meat was pretty good. Better than Bad Education which is currently on BBC1 iPlayer in the background. Gonna switch to Newsnight I reckon.

I studied Geology at university, pretty much all the lecturers had that style of 'no moustache - just beard' facial hair. We always referred to it as a 'geologist's beard' but maybe all those old guys were just Eavis fanboys.

Where did the monorail rumour start?

Don’t know but I wish someone had a time machine to go back and nip it in the bud 😂

I studied Geography & can confirm this. The Geologists were an odd bunch.

WARNING, STEREOTYPE BELOW

I wonder how many people studied geology because they found rocks fascinating were surprised post graduation that they:

  • Earned more money than most of their peers that studied other subjects.
  • Had to live on an oil rig.

I studied Geology but then sacked it off immediately after I graduated as most of the career options involved studying mud cores in Aberdeen.

I found the Geologists very introverted, much like Howard from Fresh Meat. Never wanted to socialise or go for nights out despite always being invited.

100 of us went on a field trip to Ireland, same coach & ferry, & I only ever remember seeing them once throwing up in the Irish sea on the way there.

I love limestone karst scenery.

So complete bollocks about the oil rig stuff?
