So it is the adult equivalent of Chrimbo Eve and the night before Glastonbury 2016. Everything is packed. Beers are chilled. Party bag filled with face paints, glowsticks, home made evening headware and other such fun. Just having a few ciders to help me sleep and it is up at 5.30am (A tad early for my liking) and we all head off to Worthy Farm for the crazy five days that is Glastonbury. This year with the added bonus of taking me a million miles away from dat der referendum ! So hopefully will be on site tent up bevy in hand for around 3-4pm on the Wednesday. The site has seen a lot of rainfall before the festival so will be muddy but the weather itself doesn’t look too bad and I only want it to be guaranteed dry for setting up base camp and after that I can cope with anything thrown at me.
I was going to try and do a perfect Glastonbury festival but decided it was too hard a task to create a line up with a major thinking task of who would be the three headliners from the history of music ? I decided for my sanity this time to give it a miss but might attempt it when the post Glastonbury blues kick in next week. I have created my own planner for this year and even plan to do after hours Glastonbury on Saturday night which I have never done before. But you have all these best made plans and often find yourself a 40 minute walk from where you should be and you a lost in some Cuban music learning how to salsa with a large rum in your hand. This is how the randomness of Glastonbury can get you.
After last years KLF top hat with built in flashing blue police light (Should I take it this year ? ) the 2016 part hat has borrowed from the recent Stone Roses comeback and I have gone for a bucket hat but with personalised Glastonbury sign and glitter ball trimmings. Don’t worry I will be posting picture of me being a twat in it ! So as ever every morning from Thursday to Sunday I will be posting a blog and the Sunday review will be on Monday followed by a full review later on next week. For those of you bored by my Glastonbury rambling best to give me a swerve for the next week.
So thats that time to listen to the CD I have compiled for the journey and as ever I am looking forward to meeting my twin niece and nephew who are nearly 18 down there. I am sure they will be impressed by uncle knobhead ! An old work mate is losing his Glastonbury virginity this year and I very much look forward to seeing him down there. So just one more sleep before I can go to the one place on earth where I switch off from the outside world and be myself and do what I want wear what I want and not give a flying fuck. Lets be honest if I cruised down Aigburth Vale in some Daft Punk wellies and a KLF top hat with my police light flashing away if I did not get locked up I would be laughed out of town.
The Tyskie flag is with us again this year so if you see it come over and say hello.
