In two weeks I will be camping on a dairy farm in Somerset. That farm? Worthy. That village? Pilton.. That festival? Glastonbury 2009! Bring it on :)
Looking through Halvin's marvellous Clashfinder document for the festival, I have been doing some initial planning what I'd like to see. Pretty pointless really as the times haven't been firmed up anyway (but fun nevertheless). As usual the festival is going to involve missing many fantastic acts, but I'm sure what I do see will more than make up for it.
Roughly in the order I'll see them, I hope to get to...
