Tuned in a few times to watch some of the headline acts and by and large thought it was cr@p. Noel Gallagher and his High flying birds were probably the best of a mediocre to awful bunch, but his tendency to intersperse with the usual profanities was off putting to me at least. Paul McCartney who to my mind should have stopped performing 40 years ago and stuck to songwriting was plain boring, a fair few of the songs i didn't know and were instantly forgettable and the older hits weren't getting me going at all even his duets with the foo fighters bloke and Springsteen(don't these old blokes know when to knock it on the head).
   Other acts i caught but quickly turned off were a huge @rsed black woman Missee something who appeared to shout vile swear words and **** whilst her similarly large @rsed backing singers thrust these thong clad mammoth sized backsides towards the audience every ounce of fat wobbling away like some giant jellymoulds. Finally last night some black bloke wearing a crown of thorns shouted very loudly and swore to the mother f@ckers in the audience (who lapped it up), whilst his backing dancers seemed to be pretending to be fighting pranced around him, no idea what he was banging on about, turned over to watch a quite humerous film with some old blokes, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and a few others planning to rob a bank, started to drink a pint of lager, fell asleep and missed most of it, woke up and went to bed, yep i'm getting old! Apparently i missed another OAP Diana Ross doing her greatest hits show, was there anyone worth watching at Glastonbury?

Agree, although I only watched bits and pieces, at least with the bands spread across 2 or TV stations you could

just cherry pick a few. I didnt mind Diana Ross or The Pet Shop Boys, although neither great singers now. Happy

Old? You'd fit right in there nowadays as its so mor and expensive that it's mainly 50's+ that can afford it judging b the crowd shots, far far too many 40's + there.

Do agree with that spyker, can't old 40+ people leave the youth to get on with being young on their own, they don't want their dads and grandads there surely, but having said that they were mainly under 30s at these shouting swearing rap crap gigs.

I think I'm with you stewarts on those thoughts.
I'll probably skim through the Paul McCartney set on the i-player.  Did a sort of tribute to John Lennon which I've not seen...but why not George Harrison as well?

Another thing..is it all portaloos there?...looking at that heaving crowd, I think I was happy to be well out of it.  To think I once slept under a road bridge near Perpignan for a week in my reckless youth with fellow 'grape pickers' (failed coach expedition).  It turned out to be fun though...

I'm not against modern music at all, like some rap and that Yungblood bloke is very good rico, anything up tempo with a good beat and there's a song played at my club on a wednesday whilst we play snooker they do a kareoke night as well which is great, must find out what its called and who sings it but a great rhythmic beat and tempo, some of the old fellas hate it but myself and my 76 yo geordie best pal love it, will come back to you on that one.

I channel hop a lot and only dwelt to watch two acts right thru. Yungblood and a young bird with a Latin sounding name, she wasn't wearing a lot.

Incredible that the final headline act is a virtual unknown (to anybody in the UK over 20) American rapper,  singing about black injustice, the size of his manhood and shooting people. Diana Ross's voice has completely gone but she was still better than that rubbish.

I was amazed to find how many stages there are per https://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/line-up/line-up-2022/ -obviously TV can't show them all.
But if the best that TV can come up with is the likes of Mccartney, Pet Shop Boys , Crowded House , you have to ask if any really big new groups are going to emerge. A few years ago I was told Elbow and Muse were going to be it but when I listened to them , they gave new meanings to dreary and boring.

Foals were far and away the best this year, a proper band and they knocked it out of the park as usual.

Full set here, but skip to 28:00 for one of the highlights:

I really don't get this either. I saw a band the other night (The Dead South) and quite a few people spent virtually the whole gig filming on their phones - what's the point in that? They're obviously more interested in their social media than actually watching what they have paid to see!CrazyCrazyCrazyCrazy

He did. He sang Something & paid tribute to George.

The Oldies are still going cos many of the young ones aren't exactly fantastic; writing songs that will stand the test of time.

Billie Eilish for example sings songs you forget minutes later.
