    Watching from the sofa again this year 😐 Started this thread last year so thought I’d do one again this year.

    Drove down to Wells to do some work yesterday and passed quite a few happy looking people driving down in the sunshine with smiles on their faces when I was on the way back up to Brizzle. I was suffering a bit of Glastenvy for sure.

    Who’s looking forward to seeing who? Any STWers there and able to tell us what a brilliant time they’re having? πŸ˜›

    Already bored of it on 6Music. I think I zoned out when lala was blathering on from the pottery field or something

    I’d rather watch top gear than glasto. But it seems that lots of people enjoy it so they can see if they can find it tucked away in the BBC schedules while I avoid it

    it does – generally – look shit on the telly, and I’ve been told that the enduring memory is mostly related to the stench of the bogs

    but I’m old now, and there’s no way it’ll match up to hendrix at the isle of wight πŸ™

    Yeah, exactly what I was thinking. πŸ™„
    I was actually rather enjoying LaLa’s wandering around the remoter parts of the site, areas that generally don’t get much attention. I even thought Keaveny’s ‘Portaloo Sunset’ quite amusing this morning, which is very much a first!

    portaloo sunset made me chuckle this morning

    Oh bloody hell…don’t tell Pook that something by Keaveny was funny. 😯 He’ll explode!

    Tbh Flashy, you’d be the last person I’d expect to “get” Glasto and the first I’d expect to sneer at it. Look at all those people having a good time FFS. Can’t be having that…

    A few posts in last year:

    I’m looking forward to the outrage that “This Metallica band sound NOTHING like Mumford and Sons!”.

    At least that was an attempt at wit.

    πŸ˜‰ etc

    Hell, MotΓΆrhead are playing soon, so it can’t all be bad! πŸ™‚

    Other than that, I’d go and see SFA again any time. Oh, and am looking forward to seeing if the Beeb cover the George Clinton/Parliament/Funkadelic/SATFS spot, too.

    Get little time to listen to the radio these days and when I do i can’t stand the blooming adverts…. I swear they are getting worst and it’s not just me getting older… so I quiet like Glasto on the tele

    You get to see loads of different new bands and music all from the comfort of your sofa and with the red button if you don’t like one lot, just change to the next ones.

    I wouldn’t have found Royal Blood if it wasnt for the Glasto coverage last year.

    Who should I bne looking out for this year ?

    Just seen alabama shakes on beeb 2. I must buy their new album.

    Looking forward to Jungle and Alt J, as I saw them live earlier this year.

    Always watch Glasters, for reminiscing.

    The bloated middle class corpse of what was a great counter cultural festival.

    Not even with the passing of 30 years does my memory of Glastonbury get the slightest shade of pink. The mid-eighties were wet years and there was a lot of mud, wet clothing, sleeping bags and trenches with tarpaulins for the loo’s.

    And I obviously had yet to find the right drugs. Which would have no doubt made it way more fun, although I’d probably be dead now if I had.

    The first spin-off Glade festival however, about 12 or so years ago was f****ing brilliant 8) πŸ˜€

    Shame about Foos; I am a river is really good IMO – coupled with some ‘learn to fly’ etc classics would have been awesome.

    Isn’t glade a drug festival with some music? Some of my mates used to go, I think it takes them a few weeks to recover.

    Motorhead still rocking πŸ™‚ Looking a bit aged though… it should be a day of national mourning when Lemmy goes

    In that weather, anything would sound good, even MotΓΆrhead. πŸ˜€ Nah to be fair, they’re doing alright.

    IMHO you should only be qualified to comment on the quality of the line up if you are NOT going. If you’re there you will find something most excellent to experience.

    However us sofa viewers have got a big weekend of mediocrity this year.

    My brother has gone this year. I am very jealous& bitter,particularly as my missus has just told me she could’ve gotten me a ticket.
    I have just knocked MotΓΆrhead off.

    I’d like to have seen The Libertines.

    Time to see if Flo can do it then. I’m sure she will. Not my thing but the festival crowds seem to love her.

    Saw the at Manchester before he broke his leg. They were great, apart from 20-odd minutes when they played a load of covers. Sorry, not a fan of covers bands, no matter who they are. You have what, eight or nine albums of your own material, that’s what I’m here to see you play

    Those bloody flags!
    Pete Doc – still a knob.
    Florence and Her F’king Machine – she probably has an amazingly technically brilliant voice…it makes me want to pour hot wax into my earlobes though.
    Not that I’m a big Foos fan or anything but Florence headlining with a Libertines support does not make up for Foos headlining with Flo second fiddle – IMHO of course πŸ˜‰
