    Default Glastonbury 2017

    I have received a ticket for Glastonbury rather unexpectedly, and wonder who's playing there that I should make a point of seeing.

    The one unmissable event I have earmarked is on the Pyramid stage at 4.15 on Saturday - Jeremy Corbyn being introduced by Michael Eavis, and receiving a rock-star's welcome from a crowd of up to 175,000 people ... can't wait to hear that roar!

    Haave you been before?
    There are times when you canít do the sensible thing, when you canít act like a responsible adult at all; you just have to do whatever insane thing comes into your head. When bad people do it they end up murderers, when good people do it they end up heroes, and when the rest of us do it we end up looking like total idiots. But whenís that ever stopped us?

    You definitely need to go and see the Sunday legends slot at the Pyramid stage on Sunday morning. The perfect wind-down from the festival. This year it's Barry Gibb.

    It's a festival like no other, much more than the music, loads of great food if you know where to look.

    ...will take a peek & see if there's some bits that I can directly recommend.

    Have a great festival. Looks like we're in for fab weather.

    You've been lucky indeed to get a ticket at this late stage.
    One of these days... I'm going to cut you into little pieces.

    Default Yes, I have been before

    ... about 25 times. But I lost my wife, with whom I always used to share the experience, usually working there - latterly in the Kidz Field, around three years ago, and haven't felt much like going.

    So I kinda know my way around, my temporary home is at the permaculture end of the Green Futures field.

    Just wondered whether there are any don't-miss-under-any-circumstances acts playing there this year.

    Thank you in advance for any tips ...

    I don't particularly like hip hop but I do like the energy ( Horns) the band Cut Capers has and I would make an effort to see them. The lead singer Jane Thomas has a divine voice, which is just an added bonus.

    As I failed for the FOURTH year running to get tickets, I've been watching some of it on t' tellybox. So far, I've enjoyed Royal Blood, Warpaint, Flaming Lips, Blossoms and Katy Perry (the latter partly due to her magnificent arse in that sparkly outfit!). Thought Liam Gallagher was fairly poor and Radiohead absolutely dreadful.

    However, for the best set so far, I have only two words - Foo Fighters! Really wish I'd been there and it has made me determined to try for tickets AGAIN next year.

    Tonight I'm looking forward to Biffy Clyro and then quickly switching over to Poldark in case I catch sight of Ed Sheeran and am forced to throw things at the TV...

    There's a festival near where I live starting in three days. Radiohead and Foo Fighters headlining, among others. Can't wait! Best thing is you can always get tickets

    Glastonbury 2017 is over. Fun was had, but there's a price to pay. The appalling mess left behind.

    Shame folk don't clean up and cart their rubbish with them. Probably too stoned, knackered or pissed!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer.
