Glastonbury 09

Who ya lookin forward to hearing?

Personally can't wait to see a bit of the Specials tonight  (I going to see them in Cardiff in Nov image) & hopefully the BBC will also cover a bit of Ray Davies acoustic set this evening.

The Doves should also be worth a bit of air time.


  • I just saw it on telly and it's TIPPING down

    Glad I am not going

    Again image
  •  I like watching it and ,even though Im only 24 and know a lot of people going, I would have to go myself. Looking forward to seeing The Specials, Blur and The Boss on BBC2/3 over the weekend.
  • No doubt there will be the obligatory journo pics of smiling mud-caked teens and girl in vest on boyfriend's shoulders

  • Just like when the Great British Beer Festival is on at Earls Court (5th- 8th August) there will be the cliched photo of a bearded, pot-bellied, sandal-wearing real ale drinker.
  • Very true, Musketeer. The photos of the men are much the same too image
  • Damn!! That was going to be my next post but the phone rang
  • Blur, can they recreate the Britpop magic or are they just too old now?

    image you can't go back 

  • Some things get better with age Shimmy

    Blur were always pretty shite to be fair.

  • Oi BRT, image they were the voice of a generation image

    Who else is there this year?

    Bruce should be good.  I heard him when he was at Crystal Palace a few years back.  I used to live just next to the Park, great acoustics 

  • image it so unfare I want to be there right now and not in chuffing work. I'm wondering about the shock of Jackson dieing is going to be once everybody realises it isn't the normal rumour? Would like to see the Boss there but part of the joy of glaso is wandering around and finding a band you have never heard before and noticing they are quite good. image
  • The weather forecaster on BBC Radio 4 One O'Clock News yesterday said that it would be 'a muddy shite' at Glastonbury....
  •  Neil Young is the blast from the past. Think bands like Klaxons, Fleet Foxes, Jack White's new band whose name I cant remember, Rumours about Coldplay as well.
  • Shimmy I concede Blur were pretty good.

    Springsteen was everything you would expect.

    Personal fav's from the weekend,



    Fleet Foxes



    Seemed to be a much better line than last year.

    When will the BBC get their coverage to a decent level?

    How difficult can it be to cover the full days line up on each stage via the interactive button?????

  • Why thank you BRT image

    Pendulum are brilliant.  Saw them at Reading last year. 

  • BRT, If the BBC could get Jo Wining to stop talking over everybody it would be a start. Think they are still missing the Peel although that might just be me missing him. Prodigy kicked bottom as well at the weekend.  image

    Yeah Yeah Yeahs rocked big style altho' trashing guitars is soooo 20th century imo

    Prodigy: genuinely manic & scary on topimage

    Blur - masterful tour through the hits.  Anyone think Coxon looked less than engaged at times?

    Crosby, Stills & Nash - now that was the sound of a generationimage

  • God Jo 'EVERYTHING IS BRILLIANT' Whiley......showing that the best way to say 'I told you about them first' is to say that every band is brilliant, then you won't go wrong.

    Still peeved I didn't go in 1994 when I had the chance..could have seen a fledgling Oasis too and would probably have been quite an 'old school....ish' Glasto experience, it seems a bit posh and coprorate now, the media seem to be obsessed with it these days..come on it's just a festival!!

    That said, watched Blur, the band I 'grew up with' last night. I suppose everyone has that band where big parts of their lives can be revisited as soon as you hear a certain track. Made me feel a bit misty eyed in places!!! (soppy sodimage)

    (I'm biased too as Alex James went to my school in Bournemouth....)
