>> Glastonbury overall hits it right with the target audience. Always has.

>> Mind you, when you are too old to be target, it’s you that has altered, not Glastonbury.

Fascinating. So someone who hasn't altered (i.e., the "target"), whom Glastonbury has "always hit right", is someone whose tastes encompassed Edgar Broughton (in the 70s), The Style Council (in the 80s), Tom Jones (in the 90s), Rolf Harris (in the noughties) and goes on to listen to Janet Jackson today?

And someone who is too old to be target is someone who found Hawkwind cool in 1970, but doesn't particularly like Kylie Minogue nowadays, and that's because they've let age catch up and are no longer "target"?

Crumbs. It must be all them leylines what keep 'em all inside the target.

Ah, the Isle of Avalon is truly a land of myths.

Glastonbury is indeed a grand and superbly-managed cultural institution (why does that sentence make me think of Groucho Marx?), but so is the state opening of parliament (although the latter is not run by decent, morally astute Methodists with a concern for the planet).
