We've passed the Euros peak, but I don't think we've seen the full effect of step 4 yet.

But it doesn't matter, because we're not allowed to talk about it anymore.

It’s difficult I guess … I’d still like to talk about it … but trying to avoid the toxicity that that thread became … wasn’t helpful in the end … would it be better to discuss in the other section of the forum ? I find myself asking questions to friends about some covid stuff that would be relevant to here

I think we should be careful not to turn this into another shit thread … the forum has been noticeably more pleasant without that thread 🧵

Fair enough! I'll keep my posts on here strictly on festivals

Infections appear to have peaked now too over last 4 days - here's hoping its finally under control.

Interestingly we've spent this afternoon, after our unfortunate medical related early exit from Latitude yesterday, planning/talking about/looking forward to the other gigs and festivals we've booked this summer. 

There's no signal at all on site there so I came away gutted yesterday and expecting to see 70k+ cases but its gone massively the other way. We now feel more confident about the next few weeks at least. It looks like festivals are actually back for now

We got the Thursday of festival atmosphere and the Friday of music though...and it felt every bit as good as expected to be back. Honestly it was the first escape from the covid world for 18 months. It was everything I wanted to see in the 18 months of the shit thread and finally have faith in it continuing. Had to see it to believe it

Not looking good at Standon Calling

 

Unfortunately due to flooding we will no longer be able to proceed with the festival. 

If you can safely leave the site this evening please do so as soon as possible.  We are working on getting everyone off site as safely and quickly as possible. Please bear with us as we are experiencing considerable delays exiting the car parks.. Please do not attempt to drive if you are intoxicated.

If you are unable to leave site safely (for example if you are intoxicated, your lift cannot get to you or you can’t get to your public transport this evening) please head to the Campsite Office in the Village Green (or reception if you are in boutique or Lavish Lands) where we will be providing details on the provisions we will be making for you. In the meantime please stay as warm, hydrated and dry as possible. 

We will post the latest updates straight to the Campsite Office as well as on twitter and our web page.

Geez, that doesn't sound good at all. I wonder what they'll do for people that can't leave the site?

Are you on Three by any chance?

Yes 😂. I did think from overhearing morning conversations that people were getting more access to information than me about weather etc! Glad I found the WiFi at the weird nicotine substitute bar to plan the way home...

Fucking hell the Facebook and Instagram comments are interesting. "Can we come back for our tents" "we'll update you in the morning" 

I can't even imagine to be honest

That sounds horrible, is it really that bad that they can't go back for tents? I suppose it would be carnage if everyone did that.

Fingers crossed. Case numbers going down 5 days in a row is a massive boost.

The OH is with them, utter crap signal here. They are the only big provider that are not using a temp mast on site.

I think in the discussion section of the forums would be better rather than the Glastonbury main page...although its difficult to escape it 100% as everything is so COVID related at the moment still.

So sorry to hear you had to leave early 😞 Hope you and your loved ones are okay. Glad you got to enjoy some of it at least.

Thanks! It was an infected abscess that burst - more of a "get out of these unsanitary conditions" than "get to the emergency room" type situation. 

Was the best feeling to be back in that environment- like going home!

Reminds me of that video from Glastonbury 2005.

Hard to believe that this is in the same week that had a severe heat weather warning.

There’ll be people at that festival that are stranded without their tents due to floods but still have sunburn from Wednesday and Thursday

Ah nasty! Sounds like you got the most out of the time you had anyway.

What a weekend at Latitude, it felt euphoric to be back doing one of my favourite things that I've missed so much. Credit to the organisers for putting together such an amazing event with so much on under the most difficult circumstances. It definitely felt odd being around people again but after a while it felt perfectly normal and everyone was very respectful of others wishes and it did feel relaxed too. I hope everyone going to other festivals over the summer has the best time, it's very very good to be back 😁

My tickets for Bloodstock arrived this weekend and I am absolutely pumped for it. Glad that Latitude was a success. 

Enjoy every second of it, it's probably the best feeling in the world to be back
