My Fantasy Glastonbury 2018


So today Glastonbury would have kicked off for real if it wasn’t for it being a fallow year and we all have eyes on a Sunday in October for the great Glastonbury 2019 ticket hunt. Trying not to worry about it at the end of the day if its not on its not on. But there is a giant hole in the beginning of my summer and the weather gods have been great this year with a dry run up and what would have been a dry festival itself. So I decided to fo my fantasy Glastonbury. Now before you all go no Pink Floyd it is bands I like or ones I would like to see live. I missed out on the getting stoned listening to Pink Floyd as a teenager phase so they aint playing. I decided to limit it to four stages and that was tough enough. I have no doubt missed out some glaring errors. I got to the end and double checked my iTunes, spotify playlists and vinyl collection and I had missed out David Bowie !! So here it is for you to argue and laugh about.

So there we have it and many big names left out but if they are not on my playlists then no slot.  Artists that came close were Madness, Otis Redding, The KLF (Though did they ever play live ?) Eric Bibb, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Lionel Ritchie, Elton John, George Michael, Eminem and a few smaller artists Louis Berry, The Lucid Dream and local lad Ali Ingle to name a few. I decided that you could only appear once E.G no Beatles and John Lennon separate. So the closest I get to Glastonbury is next weekend a friend of ours is holding her annual Garstonbury in her back garden in Garston. Normally at the real thing so have not been to a Garstonbury before. Will I rock up in my festival gear ? Will I let myself get as trollied as I do in Glastonbury ? Hmmm not sure I can let my hair down that much. Such is the magic of Glastonbury I can be myself there and dont feel out of place. Anyway if I make a twat of myself at Garstonbury I will be sure to blog about it.

I will leave you with a few pictures of Glastonbury 2010 to 2017 and look forward to being back down on the farm in 2019.

So a flavour of the 7 Glastonbury Festivals I have been to (Click on an image for a larger version) So many highlights and some lowlights. My eldest daughter who was 12 came with us last year (She was free) and wants to come in 2019 (Will have to pay full whack for her) so thats a no.

Peace
