    I should be getting there Wednesday afternoon sometime. It's going to be amazing, Glasto's one of my favourite places in the world! I'm looking forward to seeing Paul McCartney, Oasis, and... YES... THE LEVELLERS! At Last, Levellers at Glasto again, playing an accoustic set in the accoustic tent! The Stranglers should be good as well. I'd love it if Idlewild and The Coral come back, I saw them for the first time at Glasto 2002, and they were both there in 2003 as well....

    Still no idea on when or indeed how I'm heading down, hoping it will be before the Friday though. Is it easy enough to camp there afore the gates open?

    I've only heard about the headliners Oasis, McCartney & Muse and naturally I'll be there when Macca gets going. Unless of course he clashes with Orbital! I read that this is Orbital's farewell performance since the brothers are disbanding, so nothing is coming between me and that :)

    Yeah rub it in I don't have tickets. *sticks tongue out and runs in circles with fingers in ears saying "I can't hear you nanananana"* I will just hang out behind the church all on my own and pout.

    Hope you all have a fandabulous time and have a spliff or two for me. PLEASE!!!

    Love & Pouting

    If you can, i'd recommend you check out The Magic Band, on the World Jazz Stage. They were Captain Beefheart's band, who are now touring without the Captain, who has since become a reclusive artist. http://www.themagicband.com

    The Magic Band sounds like a plan, it will be interesting to see what they are like with out the Captain.

    I'm looking forward to see all the acoustic artists in particular, as my only festival experiences have been at Leeds Fest, where acoustic music is hard to come by. Can't wait to see Damien Rice again, and hopefully Eric Bibb will play. Can't really say who else until the line-up is confirmed. I'm going with a friend of mine who is very in to all the NME darlings, so I'll probably be seeing a fair few of them too. So many things to do!

    I'm getting the coach down on the Thursday (my friend has an exam on thursday morning then we're setting off straight after it), so we're going to be there late on Thursday evening. Luckily we have someone to put up our tent for us on the Wednesday, so hopefully our place won't be too bad. Bloody long journey though!

    I canny wait!!!

    never been to a festival before, glasto will be my first so i dont really know what to expect. there was myself, my bf, my friend smig & his gf joanne going but unfortunatley jo's just found out that she's pregnant & doesnt want to go now. so our friend Gaz is going instead, 3 guys 1 girl, great *{in sarcastic tone}* i'll have no female company! anyway, i dont know who's playing at glasto, not even looked to be honest, i love music but i cant say that i'm going down for the music, i'll just wander around & see on to what i'll stumble across, although i can say that when i'm pilling you'll find me in the dance tent.

    cant wait to see what great things are there, my bf went in 2000 & although he knows that its not going to be the same he knows what to expect. he's been trying to explain, especially about the green fields as he says i'll love it there (obviousley he knows me & what i'll like). i've been looking at the mesage boards, reading people experiences, trying to get an idea of what its like. i cant wait to go & spend my money in the markets, buying some really grovey clothes, trinkets, cushions, & things for my bedroom.

    were all traviling down wednesday morning so that we can get a really good spot & just experience glastonbury while its quite & from start to finish. i really cant wait to fucking get there man! i'm going to get a t-shirt printed up with something refuring to the hipforums, so if anyone see's me wearing it give me a tap me on the shoulder & say hi!

    ios that better for you.
