there's enough good memory left to write a 'review' though.
I'm not sure about what happened to Hybrid ; The Glade wasnt actually
built on thursday, but I'm fairly sure that they did a DJ set in the
Glade Cafe. I know that I was chatting in the bar behind the Glade that
night and recognised Mike T wonder in with someone briefly.
As for Nick Warren, he played for what was originally due to be a secret
gig by FatBoy in the Glade Friday night, but FatBoy cancelled earlier in
the day and Nick covered. Was banging by all accounts, but I ended up
offsite at that point trying to get a mate back in who'd lost his
Meat Katie followed by Infusion live on Friday were excellent though.
Great fun, and seemed to go down well with the munters. I think that
was possibly my favourite gig of the weekend.
Orbital were great, but didn't seem to be much of a different show to
the one they did in the same sunday night slot a few years back. Even
used the same backdrop as then! *but* was good to hear some of the new
tunes live (you lot, and perfect sunrise) and also the 'new' bootleg
of Halcyon had The Darkness dropped in over the top which was very
funny even if it didn't work that well ;-)
Other than that, I spent most of the time looking for music I hadn't
heard before and checking out all the local band tents. And drinking
wayyyyy too much of the pear cider from by the Jazz stage. Yum.
Anyway, it was wicked. If you can't get a ticket, get a job next year!
- Hello Simon,
Sorry you couldn't make it. I was there. Went to see Hybrid on the
Thursday night. They were DJ'ing in the Glade Cafe (the stage wasn't
together by then). It was RAMMED and TBH I wasn't sure it was them
DJ'ing or not (couldn't see them). I assume it was 'coz a REM remix
got played at one point. Missed WOW as I only got the email with the
times of their appearances Friday AM (thanks Distinctive...) !
Groove Armada were excellent although an early slot on the Main Stage
was disappointing - would rather have seen them further up the bill
on one of the other stages. Nevertheless got right down the front for
them. Chemicals were AWESOME. The bass in the show was almost up
there with indoors Leftfield gigs while they were still together.
Had a nice chilled night watching Zero 7 Saturday night who were
excellent. Sunday evening started off with Eat Static and finished
off with Orbital. Very emotional...
Still recovering 3 days later. My first muddy Glasto but it ain't as
bad as it looks and would not worry about the weather before going
