Re: Glastonbury 2019

Never been to Glastonbury but I’ve heard good things and I do want to go. Have been to Leeds Festival however 13 years on the run and Download a fair few times. I’ve also seen both the Killers and the Cure at Leeds many moons ago, they were fantastic. Thumbs_Up Always wanted to see the Proclaimers live although I admit I only know the famous ‘500 miles’ song. Cheesy
Normally camp in a tent but one year soon now I’m getting older I’d love to glamp.

Re: Glastonbury 2019

I went to a Michael Jackson concert at Aintree Race Course. We were standing about a quarter of a mile away from the stage and the sound was incredible (speaking as an ex-sound guy).

When the concert ended we walked down to the stage through a sea of rubbish including a large number of bottles of yellow liquid.

That would have been a massive clean-up operation including the course.

Re: Glastonbury 2019

Why would anybody go to a concert in a muddy field just to see a little dot of a performer on stage a quarter of a mile away?

Re: Glastonbury 2019

We didn't plan on being 1/4 mile away but it was packed from there to the stage.

And it didn't cost me anything.

It was quite an experience.

@Strat 

I'm sure it was, but is still puzzles me as to why folks go to such events. All about 'being there' I suppose.

My younger brother no doubt hoping to convert me in more ways than one, talked me into going to a Greenbelt event and boy, was I glad to leave and get away from all that arm waving in the air stuff!  As for Michael Jackson I was never a fan before, during and definitley not after his demise, although I can half understand why he was so messed up. 

Ah well.

Re: Glastonbury 2019

It was interesting to see the live show and we had a good look at the support technology afterwards.

Not really a case of 'being there', for me anyway.

An aerial view of the Glastonbury Festival site, which is expected to be hit by heavy rain, which could mean the ground is wet for the first arrivals on Wednesday morning

Re: Glastonbury 2019

The forecast is good for this year's Glastonbury, but it has endured epic washouts and mud baths.

The unpredictability of the business explains why the company behind the party, Glastonbury Festival Events, maintains a cash pile of more than £10m.
