Glastonbury is finishing up tonight in the UK. Or should I say England now?

Anyhow, there is a good article about if here https://www.theguardian.com/music/2016/jun/26/glastonbury-memories-dorian-lynksey-festival-1994-2016

I've never been, but it seems like a cross between BBBF and Woodford.

There are Glastonbury fans, and there are those who find the sheer enormity of it all, plus the mud, and from what e hear, this year was a mud pit overwhelming.
It is a behemoth.
Looking forward to the Bluesfest crew who attended reports.

This from Nick Cave at Glastonbury is reason enough to get him to Byron asap

And if it can't be Nick, how about the dirty 3.

Looking at that it also makes you realise how close we get to the stages at Byron

Wow the Guardian thinks its cool to promote or lets say make light of such dangerous and antisocial behavior..

The writers highlights were the punters.. "Like the Bowie fan who took a lusty snort of amyl nitrate before every song and got so excited during Starman that he took two, turned pale and tumbled through the crowd with a strangled cry of “Staaarrmaaaaan!”.

Imagine that at BF some wasted craked out junkie falling onto some kids pram or some 60+ in the seated section. Sounds like a modern day post apocalyptic nightmare. The poms really don't get much right anymore what with europe and the soccer and rubbish bands.
