    Anyone up for it?

    My predictions for 08 are:
    The site will expand to encompass most of the neighbouring counties of Wiltshire and Dorset.

    Muse headlining Friday (ok, that’s not really my prediction but seems a dead cert)

    Kylie headlining Saturday prompting a large gay contingency

    Cherry Ghost, The Gossip and Arcade Fire playing the Pyramid stage

    30 degree heat every day, thousands being treated for sunstroke and people saying ‘I hope it rains next year’

    Damon Albarn doing his Monkey King thang on Sunday morning

    Elton John in the old timer slot

    WiFi hotspots all over the site

    GPS will replace big flags for finding your tent “meet you at 50:22:31 2:31:05W’ will become the new ‘wher are you?’”

    People will still complain it’s too big/middle class/white/straight/not as good as it used to be

    Couldn't give a shit as long as it doesn't rain. Every Glastonbury I have been to since 97 has rained :(

    There's gonna be less rain than 2007 and thus I'll be a happy little fucker :)

    I don't mind the rain and I don't really mind the mud all that much. What I do mind is the way it saps your energy. Walking from one place to the next goes from being a stroll in the country to a long slog through the Somme and your only respite is standing to watch a band. If you didn't have the long slog and somwhere to stand you'd dance more, relax, sit about and talk to more people.

    I felt really nervous at this Glastonbury for some reason. I couldn't relax properly. :(

    Speed & coke solve the first problem

    Benzos & cannabis solve the second :)

    Oh yes we're owed a scorcher!!

    :cool:

    There are least three threads on Urban entitled 'Glastonbury 2008' -- will this one become the main/official one?

    Will it evolve into two threads of 218 (build up) and 35 (aftermath) pages by next June??

    :p

    It will rain, it will suck the cock of big business, the police will have the right to look up the punters arses.

    except Glastonbury doesn't really suck the cock of big business and people who say it does are just trying to justify why they're too old and grumpy to go any more :)

    bus git

    i really should think about stopping going, but i can;t bear for my last ever one to be a shitfest, so i keep going, hoping this year will be the one to rival 1993, and i can hang up me tent.

    ....I'm going to be saving cash out me pension for it at this rate:rolleyes:

    I think old upside down head has lost it this time. I mean kids 'can't afford a £14.99 broadband connection but can splash out £150 on a Glasto ticket?' Yeah right..
    Oi Eavis, who booked The Who eh?:mad:

    I can't see more kids wanting to come after the mudbaths of 05 and 07.

    Not gonna bother. More likely to be shitty weather than not, and it's too damn big. A handful of smaller festivals will be a better use of my time and money, I think.

    I'm going to bother :)
