    I’m running a day behind with my Glastonbury viewing so apologies.

    But, Stormzy. Wow. What a performance. I have seen more established artists like Gorillaz and Arctic Monkeys struggle with the main stage headline slot. It even subdued Bono at times. And Stormzy was the first black U.K. headliner, just 25 years old and with only one album; no pressure there then. But he was faultless with a show full of imagination, wit and verve. An icon Glastonbury moment and a British cultural milestone.

    I also caught IDLES who were excellent, Georgia (and artist who I completely forgot about) and some other bits and bobs. An excellent first day.

      I am now definitely too old and set in my tastes to enjoy Glastonbore these days. Never heard of most of the acts, and don't much care either.

      Back to Radio 3 (sigh)...
      "But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked. "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad." "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice. "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

      I'm kind of erring on your side, I don't know 95% of the acts and the ones I do know didn't sound that good. Glad I'm not bleaching in a field going through it, no wonder the cameras are always finding someone crying in the audience.

      Except he wasn't...

      Not watched any of Glastonbury this year, I will check out the Chemical Brothers set though.

      Could Glastonbury finally see the phenomenal Billie Eilish discussed on NSC? (No way I'm starting a new thread. )
      "Eilish is by a long way the coolest human being I have ever met. The simultaneous nonchalance and polish with which she poses for the camera is breathtaking; she has that mysterious quality of otherness that makes stardom look less like ambition than destiny."

      Wow. Decca Aitkenhead in The Times, today.
      I listen to bands that don't even exist yet.

      Chemical brothers have completely and utterly stolen Glasto with this set. Nothing beating it. No chance.
      100% agree. Amazing set as usual. Might as well only have one act all weekend with screens and speakers across the whole site. All other acts can stay at home.

      My stepson Jack, who is sound engineer at The Concorde, is doing the sound engineer/desk and for Loyle Carner on the Other stage today.
