Thoroughly enjoying watching the festival this year. Squeeze are currently on. Still sounding good.

Muse was phenomenal last night, and one of my nieces was in the front row. Good girl!

Never went there, but did cause a traffic jam at Reading one Saturday morning. I'd driven down to the boyf (Fixit) on Friday night, and drove him to his work as a journo Sat am at the festival. Dropped him off, headed for petrol station but got caught short of fuel right under the single lane railway bridge on the back access road :ymblushing:
Plod was NOT amused, they had to push me some way then call for a jerrican.
Oops.
Several times Fixit and I did the overnight duty for the news team, great, we got a dry caravan and facilities plus backstage access and hospitality.

Wow! I just happened to look at the screen to see my niece on tv, singing along - a full 4/5 close up seconds of fame! How cool is that?! She got to the front again! What a cool dude!

By the way, do they transport lorry loads of mud to Glastonbury every year for the festival? :D

:lol: Seems like it! Niece got a whole 10 seconds of fame - I have now recorded the clip to send to her. She's only a wee, light lass, so managed to borrow someone's shoulders by the looks of it! :D

Here's a still:

Dont know about that, but I do know of a pig farmer, when a "rave" in Liskeard turned a field next to his into a public latreen, told his farm manager, to go and spray the fields surrounding the "rave" field, with pig slurry, with a comment, of Oh by the way set the discharge spray nozzle high"

Anyway, currently playing, on the last night of Glastonbury - MADNESS! Woohoo - my childhood favourite band! \:D/ Trouble is, there are three options on the blue button - ELO are on another side. Still waiting to see Nothing But Thieves highlights. :YMPRAY:

Coldplay later to be tonight's headliner. I wonder where my niece will be this time! :lol:

Another left-wing soppy festival that is made out to be popular by the trying so hard to be hip press, when in fact anyone attending has the room to swing a "non-life hessian cat like figure" where ever they are instructed in the non-life hessian cat like figure throwing user group that is not a group because a group would make a politacal statement and we do not agree with that type of thing, group.
However I did catch ELO playing and whilst not a great memorable life changing group, it was great to see pretty people actually playing what used to be callled instruments (pre x-factors viewers need to look it up).
A few catchy tunes and and not a mention of Brexit. strange that for such a leftism attempt to make everyone eat sorrell.

Corbin out, you are a waste of ink.

I thought it was a cracking Glastonbury this year - I did catch a moment of the ELO Lead chap, but there was always plenty of choice (for those attending and those with a magic blue button on TV) to keep all ages happy.

I heard several references to the Brexit result, and there were also interviews to get responses from various walks of life. The feeling that came across was one of disappointment, and again pointing to the younger generation not being allowed to vote on "their" future.

That said, what was televised came across as brilliantly put together, a great atmosphere, and hats off to all who organise and partake in it. It's no mean feat.

Each to their own. :)

If music be the food of love - play on! Wise words Mr Shakespeare!

All that matters with festivals like Glastonbury is that the people attending enjoy themselves. I think it's great that this sort of festival is still around and there rarely seems to be any trouble as far as I know.
