Glasto Changes

The rumours have been going around a while about Lost Vagueness pulling out of Glastonbury this year after a bust-up between LV chief blokey and Eavis last year. Frankly it’s for the best I think – most of it wasn’t even up on the thursday, let alone wednesday last year, leaving those pre-festival nights a little quieter than normal (in fact pretty much nothing was happening Wednesday night at all) and during the main weekend it was so horribly busy of a night you could barely breath. It’s apparently going to be replaced by “No-mans land” run by a collective. What’s funny are the other changes mentioned on efestivals:

We understand that other changes around the site may include the circus/big top relocating to where Trash City was located in 2007, as Trash City will be moving to the corner of the site where the Tipi Field was, next to the Lost Vagueness area, making for a bigger late night party area. We also believe that the Tipi Field could move to the Stone Circle area

I am going to get so lost.

Headliner rumours seem interesting too. Jay Z is confirmed for the Saturday, so that’s at least one night going to be spent in the Caberet Tent. Rumours of Leonard Cohen for Sunday night would be awesome but right now he seems to be this year’s Prince – a pie in the sky dream. The Verve are rumoured for Friday which is pretty meh… REM seem to have dropped of the rumours list somewhat.
That all said, I have a strange relationship with headline acts at Glasto. See to get a good view you need head down the front quite early, probably having to watch one or more bands you don’t care about first and thus wasting time. While the view from the back is fairly poor, and you’d get better on TV. But if it’s a band you like you sort of have to go and see them, but I have to admit I’d much rather go see a band I like at a gig than headline Glastonbury. This doesn’t apply to everyone playing of course, for all but the last couple of bands on the bill it’s easy to get down the front. So when bands I don’t care for headline, I feel better, as I don’t feel I’m missing out!

Yes, I am a bit weird.
