Anybody watch the highlights ? Primal Scream just amazing :top marks Chase and Status were also pretty impressive. Shame about the weather though, maybe it will be better today.

Sat right the way through the BBC'S coverage until 2 this morning.

I'm not a massive fan of U2 but they put on a great show. I thought Mumford and Sons and Primal Scream were pretty awesome, and surprisingly enjoyed the excerpts of Cee Lo Green's performance. But what on earth was he wearing?!

Mark Radcliffe is a legend. His show with Stuart Maconie on 6music is the best thing on radio!

:agree:

One of the most overhyped bands of recent years. I've still not forgiven them for murdering 'Sunshine on Leith' at T in the Park.

Glastonbury genuinely looks one of the most boring festivals around. It looks on TV as if most of the crowd don't even realise there's a band on stage.

Given the scale of it, I really can't fathom why 90% of the crowd are even there given how far they are happy to stand away from the stage.

Boring? Take a look at this list of the stages alone.... http://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/line-up-poster/ Given that most of these stages are going for three full days, and some for five, if you can't find anything to your liking, then it really isn't the place for you.

And, the TV perspective is misleading. I have never had a "bad" view at Glasto, and the sound is as good as it gets at any Festival. There is no need to be up close.

I didn't mean boring with regards to the acts, I meant boring as in the crowd! They're virtually static!

I never said there were bad views either, but being hundreds of metres away from the stage doesn't appeal to me!

German tv showed Glastonbury live on Sat. - so I got to see Coldplay, thought they were quite good really, interesting light show and general image, and a few good tunes - loved it when Martin sung the wrong line in a new number in front of an audience of millions, owned up to it and started again...nice one!

BTW - Glastonbury (never been to the festival myself) got rave reviews here on German tv for its organisation, "greenness", its lack of any advertising (is that right - none at all?) and the fact that musicians like to mingle with regular people in the grounds/mud apparently - none of that elitist backstage only nonsense then: they moaned about the "English rain" though.

Wanted to see Paul Simon myself, but German tv opted to only show the Saturday set - and the Beeb won't let us "foreigners' watch anything on that iPlayer site...anybody catch Simon?

I caught some of him yesterday on BBC3, he was very good. Loads of stuff from 'Graceland', and finished off with 'You can call me Al'

How good was Beyonce last night though? I've never been a great fan of her stuff, but that was a top notch performance.

Opinions, eh? I thought his voice was shot to hell. He did make some reference early on to it....think he'd had a virus. I thought he should've pulled a sickie and played Graceland through the PA.

LG interview


You’ve also recently been critical of Glastonbury. Are you not interested in playing it again?


I’m not, mate. Listen, I don’t wake up in the morning and go, “Here you are, the world according to Liam Gallagher.” Someone asked me about Glastonbury so I told them that last time I played there it was *. You can hear the crowd talking while you’re playing, they don’t put any money into the PA and it’s just full of * idiots. It’s like Bond Street with mud.

I have to say, of the few acts I did see on the highlight show, the crowd was virtually non existant! A few head bobs here and there but most of them were rather like statues.

It's hard to bob up and down when you are busy texting your mates and posting pics on facebook so everybody can see what a great time you are having. :greengrin

I'm just back from Glastonbury and anyone above going on about the crowd being pathetic is talking absolute rubbish.

I've never experienced an atmosphere like it.

I'm not their biggest fan, but they won me over with their performance.

Absolutely brilliant :agree:

Dont be. This will be my 7th TITP, never once had any hassle. Aye there are neds there, but when you get so many people together in one place you are always going to have a small proportion of idiots.

I wouldn't be. Been the last three years, and yeah the first year I was apprehensive, I'm not now. There's idiots, yes, but there's a sense of camaraderie imo. Everyone's just there to have a good time. She'll be fine.

If he plays a similar set on Friday when I go to see him at the iTunes festival in London, I'll jizz my pants (or similar)
