  1. Blink 182 will not be playing. Thank God.

  2. I literally can't wait!!! I'm going to Glasto too, and for the first time Long-range forecasts look good :D Although I've damned that now :S

  3. it's a bit, er, white boy - oh sorry, this is Reading

  4. LOL - it is a rock festival Jane, and not womad ;)

    I think Bloc Party and Prodigy would be a bit miffed at being called 'a bit white boy'.

    Kings of Leon again though :(

  5. Which band are you looking forward to most Glenn?

    I hope they get White Denim...

    why not write a letter complaining that there's not enough acoustic music played at the Electric Picnic.
