Glastonbury 2005
The storm. The rain. The flooding.

Everything pailed in comparison upon seeing one man wade through waist deep water, find his tent and dissapear, followed by an excalibur-like rise from the deep, a crate of lager upon his head.

After that nothing got me down all weekend.

For those not there...

I saw a guy in a canoe that year.

A fucking canoe.

In a field.



I'll see if I can find the picture.

I was
at Glastonbury 97, the first time it mudded out, but my pics do not come anywhere near to that. That is impressive.

Rain, mud, robbed tents, lost shoes, no firewood available. Trust me, the so called Glastonbury spirit was a myth.

That
Takes me back.

I remember waking at 6am on the Thursday morning, we were camping in the family field which is effectively on a hill, so the rain had rushed straight through, leaving us relatively wet but crucially not underwater.

Best wake and bake ever swiftly followed - hotboxing a large tent at 6.30 in the morning is one of the best experiences of my life!

" followed by an excalibur-like rise from the deep, a crate of lager upon his head."
Priorities, mate, priorities.

I believe I was in that field.
Going to see if I can find the picture. I saw people in a canoe too, and people floating past on an inflateable sofa.

Dammit, can't find the photo, but I was fortunate enough to be about four feet away from the river that broke through West Pennard. The waters fell and we stayed put, but everyone in the next line of tents was drenched.

And i still love festivals. I have much better waterproofs now though.

2005 was wet!
I was there that year, and I also saw people wade / swim out to their (I hope they were theirs) tents, dive under and retrieve various items. I didn't see anyone retrieve a crate of beer, but do remember feeling very glad that we hadn't camped where they all had

Fortunately i slept in the stone circle field .
Which was on top a hill, so while you lot were drowning. I was fine.

And i had sex with my missus in the thunderstorm, and disturbed an American Indian.

True story.
