Doesnt seem likely, with them looking to move away from the spider, maybe they don't want to bring it back?

I saw her in 2014, and she was at Glastonbury for 2015 and 2016 too. I believe she's had to retire due to poor health, which is a shame because she's arguably my favourite performer I discovered through Glastonbury. I somehow have seven songs from her on my MP3 playlist, when she only officially released four (her four-song EP, a song you could get through signing up to her mailing list, plus two tracks from a live set which are available to download from soundcloud).

That's a shame, she was excellent. I did a bit if poking around and found a blog she wrote about managing Glastonbury 2019 with a disability and she was involved with something in the Kidzfield so still going despite her difficulties all credit to her.

Licence changes?

Paging @Dukeicon, what’s changed chief?

Haven't a clue i'm afraid!

License is on here, grated 2018 - https://www.mendip.gov.uk/article/7467/Glastonbury-Festival-Licensing-and-Event-Management-Information

Possibly something to do with the clause, if their PA is more than 200 watts.

Quote

Only sound systems rated at below 200 watts, in total at any stall etc. or venue, shall operate between the hours 0800 hours on Wednesday and 1000 hours on Thursday and between the hours 0500 hours and 1700 hours on Monday;

Pilton Palais has applied for a change in the license for the Wednesday.

I found this in amongst my team's group chat for 2019 ....

"All Wednesday live performances have been pulled off the app / website. Apparently they are breaching licensing conditions if they promote live music on the Wednesday. Allegedly all acts still playing."
🤔

So it's not new.

Will we not know who is playing where on the Weds until we get there and see the programme?

The Green Futures field Twitter page posted this, so they are apparently running a full program. No times, but sets in this field typically start an hour or 75 minutes after each other so you could have a rough idea. In 2019, Speakers' Forum opened at 1pm, Small World at 1.15pm, Toad Hall at 3pm and Mandala stage at 5pm.

It seems likely that the Greenpeace stage, the Bandstand, the Rum Shack and the Rocket Lounge will also have live acts on Wednesday, but aren't able to announce times either. I suspect checking on the forums here or perhaps the Secretglasto Twitter account on Wednesday will give everyone the times for these stages.

I know the bandstand definitely do, so the others probably will too. Seems like there will be plenty to go at 🙂

When I look back at the line ups of previous years I think "wow that's a great year"

it always works like that, because as time goes by more of the acts become familiar to you.

No. The UK is 3% black, even if you include all minorities its 13% non white, of course Glastonbury is going to look very white. Then factor in it takes place on a farm in rural  Somerset and it’s hardly a surprise it’s mostly white. People who live in big cities with large minority populations have their view of the diversity of the UK heavily skewed by what they see around them on a daily basis.

I think there's a point, it certainly doesn't feel like there are 30,000 non white people there when you're wondering around.

It's a difficult one to dicuss without making sweeping generalisations about culture, types of music etc. 

If you look at the acts performing there is a far more even spread but then look out at the crowds and they are predominantly white faces. Why is that? What is the split like at normal gigs? How much does it differ depending on genre? I was at a punk all dayer on Saturday and, though I wasn't thinking of it at the time, probably everyone was white.

I'm trying not to generalise but how is the split at a rap gig in a town? Presumably many more non white people there so why doesn't that transfer to a festival where the number of rap acts is ever increasing? Does your average rap fan think "Spend a week in a field? Camping in cow shit? Fuck that!"?

Probably a complex subject that ain't going to be solved by some people on a forum in a thread that starts with "Lawks!"
