Been nosing through it, but don't want to get too listy and organised, cos i'll have to work at least one shift during the music days and i don't want to be gutted at missing out on stuff! Some great stuff to see though, as per usual . . .
The Mannequin Pussy / Bar Italia and Soccer Mommy / Otoboke Beaver / Willie J Healey clash on Saturday particularly annoying. Sprints / LCD Soundsystem also very annoying. Mount Kimbie / Alvvays and Kim Gordon a bad one as well. Confidence Man / Paul Heaton also annoying as would like to have seen both.

Missed out again this year but I could not resist a nosey at the full line-up, not going to lie I think I'd have a very fine time down there this year. Nothing really screaming must see but as usual loads of acts I'd have a good time at.

Enjoy you lucky b*stards, I hope the weather is good for you.

Danny Brown vs PJ Harvey is irking me something chronic, that'll have to go on vibes at the time, and Orbital vs LTJ Bukem ffs - what am i meant to do there?i wanna see both! Theres a comedian on the cabaret at 10pm sunday and thats when Justice are on, but i have seen them before so aren't wedded to doing so again: plus i always want to have a good slab of wandering around theatre + circus of course. My typical plan of action post-headliners is to get a big pile of food and go sit in a circus tent, the big top or the astrolabe, to miss the queues going straight into the SE corner - have a seat, watch some weird stuff, eat up, and then go see whats going on. (i dont drink very much at all, so sugar is the best way of dealing with knacked feet - its much easier on your constitution than half a bottle of rum and eight pints)

Yeah SE Corner was quite chaotic at times last year, I literally had to march forward to get to scalping, got there in the end. Would quite like catch a few things on there after hours Saturday, (Knee Cap, Cassisdead) as well as the Thursday (Lambrini Girls, FAT DOG) which can be an absolute Bun fight. Hoping to try a bit more of the Dance stuff this year as I often neglect it a bit.

Their biggest/most popular is probably Pat Earrings



Their best IMO is Marilyn



It’s definitely not for everyone, but my god, I can’t think of anything I’d rather do than watch a mysterious bloke in a lifelike mask perform his weird songs about sleeping with prostitues and his own mortality whilst probably being on more drugs than 99% of the crowd.

I’m just happy to see him finally get his flowers. Took him nearly 20 years to release a proper album but now he’s winning Brits and performing at Glasto. I am a shameless fanboy though, admittedly. :lolol:

Have added this to my lineup, well the 2:30-3:30 Sunday morning set which will tie us over until Rudimental's DJ set until 5am :eek:.

Tempted by Kneecap before CASisDEAD but probably going to be at Arcadia to see Eric Prydz.

They seem to have got quite a good distribution of late night stuff going on this year between SE Corner, Arcadia and Silver Hayes so hopefully it's not too bad..

Reckon Bicep (Dove) at the Levels on Thursday evening will be rammed though as well as their Chroma set on Friday night on IICON.

Justice will be rammed at West Holts and I can see 80% of the site trying to see Sugababes.

Hoping to catch Justice, always find Thursday to be an absolute bun fight at anywhere that’s active. Settled in the crows nest last year for a Katy J Pearson secret set. Example was chaos. I think you are right about Bicep, will be very busy. If 80% of the site are at Sugababes more room for me at PJ Harvey :lolol: .

Looks like it's going to be dry but a potentially quite cold one particularly in the evenings. But I'll take highs of 20 and lows of 10 over 30 degrees and/or a rainfest.

Setting off at 9 am on Wednesday and hoping to be set up and milling around by 3 pm at the latest. Too old and knackered for queuing overnight, need to make the most of my last decent night's sleep.

When's everyone else setting off?

Getting the 07:06 from Paddington to Castle Cary tomorrow morning, getting there for 06:30 should be a nice early one :lolol:

I only drive for West Holts, so unfortunately our paths won’t cross. 🙂

Arrived last night. It’s hot, hot, hot!

@jackalbion - what’s your flag this year?

Oh, and by the way, this is in the news, and could be of interest to those inclined in this way…

Very jealous of both of you. Have fun.

Any sign of a TV in the bar?

That is absolute dance mania. Decent though.

As you said, shows the depth of Glasto that my first view on seeing the line up was "that's a bit safe/vanilla" yet you've built a great Friday there.
