Officially Official Glastonbury 2010 Thread *Officially approved by Eavis*

Got back from Glastonbury early this morning. This is my bragging thread but in the sprit of of the festival I will let you contribute too.

If you went, what did you think? Best band? Weird experiences? Bad trips? Worst band?

Even if you didn't go, any personal highlights?

Gorillaz were awful, gutted I missed Thom Yorke, Slash is a legend.

Indeed. Signing up to a Flickr Pro account so I can upload them in decent quality. Will send you a link once I'm done if you care that much about them. I think they look good but a true pro like yourself may well laugh themself to an early death.

Forgot the camera for Muse which I regret.

Mumford and sons were brilliant as were Muse and Slash. Have a feeling they will be headlining one of the main stages next year. Glastonbury has never been one for a top lineup but nobody even cares.

After Thom Yorke's appearance this year, can only hope for a Radiohead headline slot next year.

strong repetition of sunglasses picture..lol. Nice pics

MUSE were awesome!

I think the warm socks are to clean the mess up Shakiras performed.

Came back early on Sunday,not usually bothered about the line up but this year i thought there was too much crap in between bands i like (The Cribs being my fave band),so on the Sunday at around half 8,3 of us decided to go,them 2 were the drivers so were not drinking and there was nowt we were enthusiastic to see Sunday till the night time,BLOODY TOO HOT aswell,think that played a part aswell for the last day.SNOOP was excellent.Way too many people there for the fields,it is ok upping the capacity and enlarging the camping fields but the stage fields stay the same size,so i think they should drop back down around 25 thou.Still enjoyed it like,but for the bragging of what they were gonna get for the 40th ann and what they did get was poor.Everyone who came back from the gorrillaz in our camp said they were rubbish.

Look, being a sad Internet freak I obviously only watched on tv, and generally it look pretty awesome as usual. BUT why were gorrilaz so so bad? I haven't seen the set so I don't know. I think some were expecting cartoons?

Was too boring for a headline festival act.

Really slow and stop/start as he kept bringing on guests and they weren't anything special. There was 2 mins of some random Chilean band playing pipes and other crap whilst Daman Albarn sat their giggling.

Love The Cribs:thumbsup:

I do think the sound at that stage let them down,having watched them on tv aswell it could possibly just be the wind taking the sound,doubt it though,but it is not the best stage for sound.Florence sounded terrible but on tv was better,the Prodigy last year half the sound stopped working,so maybe this is something they could look at,It sounded good for the Pet Shop Boys though.
