So what was extra for the 50th?

Title says it all really - wondered if there was anything said or done that celebrated / highlighted that it was supposed to be the 50th year. I'm guessing if it had taken place in 2020 they would have done the speaker years as in 2010 but maybe they thought that was too lame now.

Having 'only' had the iplayer coverage to rely on, i've not seen much about the 50th celebration - be interesting to get the on site feelings.

Safe trip home everyone - pages and pages of posts to come over the next week 🙂

The crowds from some reports. Only by reading others attending. It was very busy even as an attendee from Friday onwards. Reports thats 210k tickets sold plus 80k for Sunday locals. If it was that is crazy. I know from being there that trying to get around the other stage by mid afternoon can be a nightmare and back in 2011, 13 and even 14 it wasn't that hard.

It certainly hasn’t been on the front of the Pyramid like that for a while. Until this year there’s been an art installation there instead for at least a decade. 

yeah, you're probably correct, but the front of the pyramid always did have the cnd there, it might have come back cs of 50th, though.

Yeah that’s what I’m saying 🙂 clearly back because of the 50th, and what a nice touch.

8k Sunday tickets perhaps, certainly not 80k

Hang on, 80k for Sunday locals?? That’s a typo surely?

Sorry yes I think so haha. I'm guessing though it's around 80k extra since it was 137k. That number felt fine.

But you have got your crew on top of that too so on Sunday potentially just over 230k in the same space occupied by 150k several years ago.

I had accepted it was getting busier just because I was going but the last few years had seemed too much.

To close off the Avalon area as it's reached capacity was never an issue several years ago. I admit the other year it was that busy there that I might have only just made it in.
