Subject: Review: Glastonbury

For UK viewers the TV coverage seems pretty comprehensive. Between that, Queen's Club tennis and Women's World Cup football, there's not much else on TV (UK).
Is It my age, or why don't I recognise anyone at Glastonbury, except maybe snarly chops Liam Gallagher (and even then, only because my son was into Oasis!) I had to look at my Radio Times (another age indicator?) to see who that wumman was, on for ages: Janet Jackson.
So, my Mudcat friends, who do you recommend at Glastonbury (on this year's list) and who would you like to have seen/see in the future there?

Saw Foals last night and enjoyed that though they are a relatively new act in the scheme of things. For acts who have been around the block.Not seen the set by The Killers yet but will catch it and I believe Pet Shop Boys guest with them. Want to catch Sheryl Crow and also Lauren Hill. And The Cure are on tonight. I have seen them live but must have been about 39 or so years ago.

Janet Jackson has been around for a long time, TB. :-))

In the early days, Glastonbury was far more "cutting edge" and "alternative" for want of a better description. I'm sure there's still lots of good music there on the smaller stages but the event is just too big these days to interest me although I've never actally been.

I've got to the age where I actually prefer less choice at a festival. Sometimes it's better just to have one or two concerts happening at any one time albeit that there may still be an opportunity to attend several of them over a weekend. Of course, we still need variety but it's still possible to book several artists for such events and there are enough good musicians, singers, and bands that they don't all need to be back every year either.

Re the age indicator. Thinking Janet Jackson is a newish act is an enormous age indicator. She had her first UK hit about 35 years ago and hasn't had one for about 17 years. Folk approaching retirement are probably better placed to recognise Janet Jackson than any youngster ??

No, I wasn't thinking that at all, Allan and Johnny J.
Of course I knew that she was one of The Jacksons from way back, once I'd found the name in the RT, and of course I'd heard of her. I just didn't recognise her: but I don't think I ever paid much attention to The Jacksons back in those far-off days!

Btw, just looked up "The Jacksons" and Janet Jackson: she was the youngest and not in the original 5! Wasn't born until 1966. The whole late 70s/80s/90s pop scene is pretty much not on my radar!
And I'm well past retirement now too.

I used to live in Glastonbury, and even then the festival (or "Pilton" as the locals call it - Worthy Farm is in Pilton) never held much attraction to me since the end of the 1970s - it all seemed a bit dull. There have been good local acts, I suppose, but I think that if you want to have the Glastonbury experience then all you need to do is to stand, fully clothed, in the shower listening to (BBC) Radio 2. You'll save yourself a fortune. IMHO.

Dead right. I first walked Wainwright's Coast to Coast in the mid-1970s soon after its publication, and noticed the newly-erected "Keep Out" signs in farmers' fields. When I walked it again 20 years ago I was struck by how many of these signs were replaced by invitations to stay for bed and breakfast, use their camping barns and buy their ice cream.

Similarly, a number of Pilton farms become car parks for the weekend.

And Millfield pupils discard their caps, blouses and blazers and put on grunge gear...

Acoustic stage has been interesting. Pyramid stage does its duty.

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.

Brilliant celebration of music as ever. Not enough folk? Sure. Not enough {add genre} to suit all.

Modern England is a national disgrace:

When office teams go out for a meal they nearly always choose a foreign restaurant, rather than support the few locals who try to make a living with their own culture and food - i.e., home from home food, like you still find in France and Italy, e.g.

The huge majority of English fanatically support a World X1, call it a "Premier" League, then scratch their heads as to why we lose to nationalistic nations such as Croatia and Iceland.

The huge majority of English have been hyped into thinking American pop, rock and (c)rap are somehow above their own good English folk and classical music.

Etc.

Glastonbury is a grand and superbly-managed cultural institution. We can all gripe about something or other to do with it but I prefer to applaud the organisers, especially Emily Eavis. And I could watch Miley and her dad all day long. Well Miley anyway. I'll save my griping for the next two weeks of Britain's professional losers playing a silly game in which grown people hit a furry ball at each other. Come on Tim.

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).

I'll quote myself from a week and a half old thread...

"Around 1976 or 77 our band of mates took a drive to Glasto
and found a free festival in a field with a band set up on a flat bed lorry..
There wasn't much of an audience.
But there were a few nudey hippy girls walking freely about.
Including two 16 year olds who were our college friends and backing singers...

We were told that was Glastonbury Festival...

The next and only other time I went was I think 1982,
when it had become a colossal sprawling alternative tented city...
More a part of the upper classes organised summer season events calendar
than a free spontaneous hippy happening...
"


We'll catch up on a few of the glasto music downloads on BBC catchup
until the July Sumo Wrestling tournament starts next week
on NHK WORLD-JAPAN News channel and app...

..a half hour edited highlights show once a night for 15 days...
with a couple of early morning live shows chucked in as a free bonus...

We started watching it for a laugh and are now hooked..
An intensely exciting sport steeped in traditional Japanese culture...

Trouble is the mrs still loves boring middle class tennis...

Glastonbury is in England, PFR, so should be a festival of primarily English culture - with some guest musicians from other nations including America.

If you visited the USA, PFR, would you expect to see an English folk festival? So why should we have a festival of primarily American pop, rock, and rap?

Walky - after you bend Glasto to your will,
next have a go at telling WOMAD how wrong they are doing that sort of unpatriotic thing on British soil...


btw.. the first WOMAD at Shepton Mallet 1982 was the best, most joyous, and last big UK festival I've ever been to...
Though nearly 40 years later I now see the 2019 festival is promoting exclusive glamping areas for the rich poshos...

I've never actually liked huge festivals that much,
I prefer free community celebration fests..
There were loads of really good ones for the 15 years I lived in London.
..and for 10 years since I moved back home to the west country,
the Burnham on Sea free folk fest was the highlight of our summer
Shame that's gone RIP though...
Compare and contrast that kind of low key fun local experience
at one of the least loved lowest ranked UK seaside resorts,
to bloated over hyped nearby mythical Glastonbury....
or very middle class inaccessible for public transport Priddy folk festival...

Mind, it helped having a relative near Burnham who provided a free spare bedroom for the festival weekend...

One of my slight gripes about this site is that there is so rarely anything about music which is not from, or derived from, the British Isles. There is a fantastic amount of traditional music from Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America, even Australia, and we never discuss it, apart from the occasional post from Kerboxeru. Alan Lomax understood this, he collected traditional music from all over the world.

Our greatest cultural figures have always thrived on interaction with other cultures. Shakespeare wrote a lot about Italy, and almost certainly spent time there. Turner studied at the Louvre and spent a lot of time in Venice. Elgar visited Leipzig and wished to study there, but couldn't afford it. Handel was an immigrant from Germany. Culture is always about interaction.

For a start, I repatriated out of support for Aboriginal Land Rights - I hate imperialism whether it is Roman, German, American or English; I love our world/our United Nations being multicultural and want English culture in England to remain a part of that.

When I visited Barcelona last year and Rome this year, I didn't have any English food; rather, in Barcelona, I enjoyed a nice vegetable paella and a glass of sangria, with a performance of flamenco - there are MANY places in Spain where one can have such an experience but how many in England where one can have a nice roast, and a gin and tonic whilst watching Morris or clog dancing? I rest my case.
