Zimmer, lol. It was a load of pap.

I know lets give even more air time to to a load of commercialise pop rubbish that already gets rammed down our throats 24/7 for the rest of the year, whilst all the talented bands that could actually do with some airtime, that is mainly dominated by Cowellesque garbage, get overlooked.

I'm glad I don't pay a licence fee, no doubt the BBC are trying to convice folk Glastonbury didn't exist before they started broadcasting it, like Sky and Football.

She had the opportunity to come out and blow us all away with a tailored set to suit the occasion, instead it was just drivel.

I'm not a fan or the target audience, but I can recognise a world-class performer at the top of her game when I see one. Or maybe I was just looking at her legs  :P Nothing Simon Cowell has been associated with is nowhere near that good.

Now Pendulum, that really was a shower of shit.

Glastobury ain't about the big bands in my opinion. Id of loved to have seen the legendary  Greg Wilson do his set for one and I think there was about another 100 new artist doing sets as is every year. Thats Glasto ! Why see U2 >>>>>>>>

Glastobury ain't about the big bands in my opinion. Id of loved to have seen the legendary  Greg Wilson do his set for one and I think there was about another 100 new artist doing sets as is every year.

Agree. And that's why I'm disappointed with the BBC coverage this year, and a little bit disappointed in the line up in general (I still can't believe Beyonce headlined closing day!).

Of course, I could buy a ticket and go there for real instead of complaining on here, but at the same time I'm a bit disappointed that the BBC seem to be focusing on the acts that I could hear if I tuned into Radio 1. In the past it's been a much more varied pallet of artists. I'd never have heard of Manu Chao for instance if it hadn't been for his awesome performance a few years ago, and the Raconteurs set last year is a Youtube favourite of mine. But so far there's been nothing like that this year. 1 song from Warpaint (I'm sure their set was longer than that) and maybe Paulo Nuttini's set. I'm sure there's more footage to come over the coming weeks, but I can't help feel the BBC have spent too much time/money setting up to record the famous acts and not enough on what makes Glastonbury what it is.

Watched the first day's recording last night.

Is it me, or does it just seem that there was only U2 there?

And WTF was that with Biffy Clyro? BBC, get your act together, you show us shit loads of U2, having done a seperate show just of their performance, then only show on song by Biffy... PAH!

The headline acts have been getting crapper and crapper over recent years. With all the money and prestige they've been able to afford bigger acts. What the fuck is the point of having U2, Coldplay, Beyonce and other has-beens? It's hardly contemporary. Yehuda is right, the joy of the festival is all the smaller stages. That said Underworld in 99 and Moby in 2000(?) on the main stage were two of the best gigs I've ever seen.

Could this be why smaller, more intimate, festivals are booming? I am thinking of such as Bestival (although it pushing it to call that smaller etc etc), deershed etc.

It seems like every year there is another festival cropping up, where I live there are 3 in the next month alone (and I am pretty sure North Yorkshire hasn't suddenly become the centre of the music universe)

I think that has to do with money. Bands make money touring these days, whereas it used to cost them to tour. Couple that with the incredible increase in affluence over the last 15 years, especially amongst the young, and festivals are a money-spinner.

I think the Green Man Festival is doing a good job of stepping into the shoes of what Glastonbury used to be about, although even that is getting dear now, £135 this year  :(

Looking at Yehuda Moon's list of acts it would seem that Glasto is still a good place to see smaller, more contemporary, and ground-breaking acts.

The main stage needs a "dinosaur" with an extensive back-catalogue to pack it out in the evening but it seems like there's still something for everyone.

Remember your parents saying "this is just a noise" as you watched Top of the pops intently?

I'll leave it at that.

I'm not as old as you lot  :P and I listen to stuff that would be considered worse "noise" than her.

My beef isn't with Beyonce as such, more the decision to have her playing Glastonbury. It's got more of a Radio 1 roadshow (remember them?) feel to it these days, or that god awful T4 on the beach. She could have pulled it off, if she'd had some input herself into her set and decided to tailor it towards the occasion, rather than just performing the exact set she takes out on tour the rest of the year.

Who knows, maybe recently they've got to cater more towards the people who can afford to go hence mainstreaming/dumbing down the acts, rather than just being about great music.

Check out the 1994 line up (!)

Beastie Boys
Spiritualised
Blur
Orbital
Radiohead
Oasis
Pulp
Inspiral Carpets
Bjork
The Pretenders
The Manic Street Peachers
Johnny Cash
Peter Gabriel
Nick Cave
Paul Weller
Elvis Costello
Tindersticks
Tool
Rage Against The Machine
Beck
James
Ride
Saint Etienne
etc

I mean come on, Beyonce? yes she can sing and dance a bit and she's easy on the eye, but please, Glastonbury? I'd take all of the above over her.

The one and only time I went to Glastonbury was in 1992 and there were some pretty mainstream pop acts on the bill that year - Shakespear's Sister and Tom Jones were the big headline acts IIRC. I didn't watch either - too busy watching more interesting stuff instead.

Primal Scream were on the bill that year too. Plus ca change.

Ooh my manager stumbled across Mr Kool and the Gang last night on BBC4 and thoroughly enjoyed it, one hell of a drummer apparently.

I think I was there in 1994. I remember in the early-mid 90s having to choose between things I wanted to see on the main stages. To be fair, some things that were easy to skip but I hope those who went have a similar choice. I'm with grandpa Simpson now and as I'm not buying a ticket can hardly expect Glastonbury to cater to my tastes (which are somewhat radio 6 in nature). But, I'd rather see something that I might not otherwise see than Beyonce which is on our TV now but, frankly, not gripping me.

With legs like that I reckon Beyonce could get under the hour for a "25".
Never tell me the odds.

Watching Glasto on BBC4

Beyonce was pretty fab but what a talent Janelle Monae is, singing and dancing like a bird.

Agreed, she's amazing! I really like what she is doing.
