So was it worth all the mud? Hell yeah. Glastonbury was, as ever, an awesome experience. It did take me a while to drop out of real life and tune in… but that can only be expected now I’m a real person instead of student layabout.
Owing to the whole holiday thing, it’s going to take me ages to go through the photos and review stuff properly so here is just a list of what I saw.
- Liz Green (not Regina Specktor as I thought)
- Alessi’s Ark
- Golden Silvers
- Bjorn Again
- The Slips
- Maura Kincaid
- The Mojo Fins
- City Stereo
- ? in orange chill n charge tent – had a single stealing all of the rifts from Echo beach due out August
- Fleet Foxes
- Lily Allen
- Little Boots
- Jack Peñate
- Layo and Bushwacker (Dance)
- Freeland (Live, Dance)
- Jamie T (begrudgingly, basically waiting for Doves…)
- Live poetry at Speakers Forum (Danny Chivers, Claire Fawcett and Merrick)
- Mark Thomas
- I tried to get to Rolf Harris but 60,000 people showed up at a small stage. Fail.
- Eagles of Death Metal
- Hope and Social
- Bap Kennedy
- Maxïmo Park
- Franz Ferdinand
- Status Quo
- Martin Healy Band (from the red flag bar – the queue took the entire set!)
- Kate Walsh
- Music of Penguin Cafe Orchestra
- The Capitol Years
- Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds (from Solidarity Bar)
And a quick few pix- was well worth taking a camera with a glass lens over a mobile!
