Glastonbury 2009 Overview

Posted by Alan on June 30, 2009

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.

Thursday

  1. Liz Green (not Regina Specktor as I thought)
  2. Alessi’s Ark
  3. Golden Silvers

Friday

  1. Bjorn Again
  2. Sub-Universe
  3. The Slips
  4. Maura Kincaid
  5. The Mojo Fins

  7. ? in orange chill n charge tent – had a single stealing all of the rifts from Echo beach due out August
  8. Fleet Foxes
  9. Lily Allen
  10. Little Boots
  11. Jack Peñate
  12. Layo and Bushwacker (Dance)

Saturday

  1. Live poetry at Speakers Forum (Danny Chivers, Claire Fawcett and Merrick)
