Love no bones Jones, how’s the cookbook? Made many of the recipes?

I've not made many, it was a sort of festival impulse buy. I love his veggie fritters with chilli jam.

The chickpea curry has become a regular though as it's quick and simple and it's easy to tweak - I often add some roast butternut squash. The sag aloo is good as well.

It says "midnight Sunday 30th May" so I'm taking that to mean until midnight tomorrow. 

Cheers, im assuming same just scared that at midnight tonight it’s technically Sunday. Defo over thinking it though.

 

edit: I’ve had a response from Driift- they’ve changed it to end of day Monday now (think there was problems with streaming last night)

I loved Wolf Alice’s set, their joy was contagious. 

Just stuck it on again, admitttedly we got a bit pi%%ed before last weeks came on so watching in a more sober state.  Theyre bloody brilliant.

I bought the cookbook last festival! Haven't made a lot of them but it is a really nice book. Have done that chickpea curry, though. They insisted on signing mine when I bought it so a nice little souvenir.

I add chicken which maybe goes against the spirit of a vegan recipe, but at I use thigh fillet, so it is boneless. 
 

 

Watched the Wolf Alice set for a third time last night and I love it more and more with every repeat.

Just watching it for the 4th time now. A career changing performance. I love how Ellie starts off Don’t Delete The Kisses so nervously she can’t keep the tune then quickly gets her confidence and totally owns it by the end of the song.

Interesting article on the Live Stream issues.

Snippit of the "What went wrong?" bit.

Quote

 

Salmon confirms that the failure – as ticket-holders found out – was down to the access passcodes that customers were emailed not working (the precise “core” issue – the technicality within the technicality ­– is still being investigated). There was no problem with the stream itself, he says. Driift made sure of this by having “redundancy after redundancy” (back-up satellites) in place.

The access codes were meant to link to a microsite on which the stream was housed. But effectively the front door to the event remained closed. Salmon likens it to someone “buying a ticket for a concert and then the security guard not letting them in.”

He adds: “What we know for sure is that an issue existed with the access code themselves. There was no issue with the stream. One of the things you worry about with live streaming is that the stream itself can go down so that it’s either buffering, or the sound or the video quality isn’t good enough, or the satellite goes down and people are left with a blank screen. And the frustrating thing is that we went to such great lengths to ensure that that could not happen.” 

The problem arose because Driift is not an IT platform itself. Rather it is a producer and promotor of livestream shows. So it relies on various third-party tech partners to deliver certain aspects of the stream. In other words, while Glastonbury outsourced the running of the event to Driift, it in turn outsourced technical aspects to other companies. “At any one moment there might be four or five different tech partners that are delivering certain aspects of the service,” Salmon says. As soon as the problem became apparent, he and his team called the company in charge of the codes. The company said there were thousands of people already watching and suggested there was some kind of logjam. “But it then transpired it was a more complicated issue,” Salmon says.

 

Also seems like there were quite a few people who bought tickets for the first stream.

Early data suggests that around 20 per cent of the audience were unable to get in for those first 100 minutes, Salmon says. He can’t quantify this exactly but it amounts to “tens of thousands of people”. Salmon won’t comment on how many of the affected people applied for a refund (ticket-holders had calmed down by the following morning, suggesting the number could have been less than feared). Nor will he name the company in charge of the access codes. But he says it isn’t See Tickets, which sold the tickets, or Jackshoot, the broadcasting company that Driift used. “It wouldn’t be right of me [to name the company] because there will have to be some sort of legal investigation into this,” he says.

Interesting stuff. For the 20% unable to get in to be "tens of thousands" it could be anywhere between 100k and 500k sold, otherwise they'd have probably said over 100k.*

*Maybe. 

Do I look like a statistician?**

**Don't answer that.

I reckon they are being a bit disingenuous here. Judging by the significant amount of people on here during the first 100 minutes, and only a few who seemed to have got in, I’ll bet the percentage was way higher than 20%.  Nobody will ever know, so they can easily play it down

Yeah. Whilst people with problems tend to be more vocal, it seemed like those of us who got in were in the minority, not part of 80%.

Definitely felt that way to me too!

Looks to me like none of the parties involved are prepared to take the blame, not publicly at any rate.

I agree, there's been a real shifting of blame all round.

Yeah it sounds like Whiley misspoke. Pretty sure she said they were showing it in full but that sounds like just highlights, which is what we thought before.

I think showing highlights is better than screening the whole thing for free a month after people paid for it.

Amazed this was never made available as a DVD/Blu-Ray at Xmas. I guess people aren't buying that stuff as much now but it doesn't look to me as if it's available anywhere as an official release, even online?

Nice to see Live at Worthy picked up a BAFTA for multi camera direction 🙂

I'm glad they didn't win an award for technical services or how to start a stream on time.  I love Glasto and will usually blindly defend it, but that was a shit show.
