Glastonbury 2007 – A year to forget

Glastonbury 2008 – A year to remember

 

Thankfully id-iom have managed to get their hands on tickets for Glastonbury again this year and I thought it might be appropriate to craft a small memento commemorating past years. I have been fortunate enough to attend all available festivals since my first attendance as a festival virgin in 2000 – and have thoroughly enjoyed every one come rain or shine…

With it being held in the UK the one thing you can never guarantee is the weather and regardless of whether it’s glorious sunshine or raining cats and dogs there is always superior levels of amusement to be had. In fact I perversely enjoy the inclement weather somewhat as it really does sort the men from the boys. In 2007 we had the torrential rain for pretty much the entire festival (just like in 2005!) which left the site like some apocalyptic swampland. Then a year later it’s blazing sunshine and tans all round.

Both pictures are based on a photograph of me enjoying the comfort of a pile of rubbish whilst sheltering from the blazing sun under an umbrella I’d found lying around. It probably prevented me from getting sunstroke that year…

U2 and Coldplay headline Glastonbury 2011

I’ve been to Glastonbury every available year since 1999 and thoroughly enjoyed myself every time – come rain or shine. I’m sure this year will be no exception (and I hope the weather will be as nice as last year) but I think this piece sums up my reaction to the news that U2 and Coldplay will be headlining. I’m somewhat ashamed to say that i have seen Coldplay before (at Glastonbury when i was in no fit state to traverse between stages) and suffice to say I will not be making the same mistake twice. I reckon I will however be seeing exactly what Beyonce has to offer…

My (non-musical) highlight from last year would have to be trading consumables on the Monday afternoon at the Stone Circle – what fun and merriment there was to be had! At least the choice of headliners has provided me with some ideas for a little bit of on site ‘street’ work. Keep your eyes peeled!

Cheers
