    Glastonbury thread

    Doubt anyone in here is going judging by the ages? I guess if you were you would already be thereÖ.having been 5 times I know a lot goes on despite the main stages but I donít see too much to get excited about in the line up after 3 years waiting?? Any of the regular oldies on here go in the 1970ís?

    I think it's a corporate media and money making exercise

    I don't agree with the liggers who scaled the barriers but it had to be paid for somehow

    Nowadays it's all sponsorship yet its still so pricey to get in

    Those stupid kite like flags and banners are a pain in the arse too

    Best year for me was 1992

    Lou Reed , The Fall , Fishbone , The Breeders

    I went in 92, was really really hot weather throughout. I went mainly for the indie darlings at the time like Carter USM, Blur and Ned's Atomic Dustbin, but I remember enjoying afternoon sets by the Saw Doctors and Richard Thompson. The highlight of the weekend was ending up in the acoustic tent late on Sunday night and bouncing around to The Ukrainians. It was getting a bit rough by then mind, think there was some drug related violence and plenty of tents got robbed. I wouldn't go now even it was free but I'm glad to have gone twice

    I'll probably have a look at this lot ... Big Thief, Dry Cleaning, Fontaines D.C, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Olivia Rodrigo, Primal Scream, Robert Plant & Alison Kraus, Saint Etienne, St. Vincent, Turnstile, Wolf Alice.

    Anything else worth watching?

    Got a feeling this band might get a good response on the John Peel stage ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0B7FUziUECY

    2002 was the best one for me….the first time I made the long slog all the way down to the pyramid stage. Arthur lee, Ritchie havens, manu chao…way too much time in the glade but it was an amazing week.

    Re: Glastonbury thread

    I should have done it years ago.

    However, for various reasons I didn’t and now it would probably be my idea of hell on earth.

    I am afraid that a comfortable bed, clean toilet and an early night are top of my needs these days.

    Probably my loss and McCartney, aged 80, may be putting me to shame but the BBC allow me to watch in comfort.

    Yeah I couldn’t do it now….no chance. Can’t believe it’s been so nice all week and now it’s going to piss it down all weekend….

    Went most years between '79 and '89. which was the last time I went. By then it was getting too big and too corporate. Back in the day it was a great alternative festival and part of the then counter culture. You'd have to pay me a huge wad of money to go these days

    Neer went. Was never interested to be honest. I'm not really into festivals. Too many bands I don't care to see, bad weather and especially camping. I've been to a few festivals abroad that were OK, but the British ones are the worst.

    I can't see Macca in a two-man tent and queueing for a tom tit.
