Well yes, that there was space for wax flares and a few campfires is what surprised me! 

I suppose capacity was lower then. 

No that was the year the fence came down and there were 200000 on site !!!

Three years on and I’m still not sure if I enjoyed the Foos or not.

I saw them at Wembley in 2008, and for  17 year old recently discovered Zeppelin fanatic, it was the best night of my life to that point.

I saw them in 2011 and the setlist was virtually unchanged, and the patter identical.

I swore I'd never purchase a ticket to see them again, unless they did a major shake up of their setlist.

Went along at Glasto and enjoyed the hits I always have, but yeah.. as underwhelming as I anticipated in the surprise department.

The Blur set is a weird one for me. I skipped it for The Prodigy, and I don't regret it one bit since they're one of my favourite acts of all time. And if I went back now I'd do the same thing.

But it's the only set I watch back and kinda wish I was at.

Anyway, on to Bowie...

There's a special place in hell for whoever holds the "I love sausages" flag.

Swear they are at every set!

I said something of a similar sentiment last night during the Springsteen excerpt but it got lost as it was busy on here. I believe it was an advert from a sausage stand somewhere on site. As the issue of flags got quite high up agendas after 2009 (when the poor Beeb couldn't use half their cameras due to them) they got a personal warning that they were not to take their flag into the arenas. They did it again, because of course they did. Their stand never returned. Thats the story as I understand it. Could be wrong. It certainly hasn't been seen since.

Karma comes around eventually.

The damn thing still gets my blood pressure up though!

Dare I say it but the field doesn't look rammed for the beginning of this Bowie set...

Yeh I thought that...what's that about? Just seems like a gap in the middle behind sound box though?

 

 

Aaaah I love this one!!!!!

Ch-ch-ch-changes!!!!

I’m 6ft2 and I recall not being able to see the stage during Kasabian in 2009 because there were so many flags.

If I could go back and see them instead of the Prodigy I would :(

I made the same mistake :( 

Black Eyed Peas (Cringe. Worst. Choice. Ever. (possibly)).

Hey I had tickets for Blur at Hyde Park the weekend after is my excuse. Didn't want to spoil it. Gig Of The Decade that '09 performance wasn't it. Probably my biggest regret in fourteen (I think) festivals.

And The Prodigy are another of those acts that I've missed there at least three times due to shifts and clashes (Elbow and Pulp/Cocker being the other two that spring to mind). Never going to get to rectify that one properly now.
