The Idler Festival.  This is an unusual little festival for anyone with easy access to London.  Not that much music (Sam Lee, Chris Difford), but a very intriguing line-up.  https://www.idler.co.uk/product/the-idler-festival-2019-at-fenton-house-weekend-ticket/

I see Paul McCartney's headlining at Glastonbury next year.  Must set a reminder to be away from the telly that night... I assume he'll murder "Hey Jude" (again...)

Footage I've seen of him in the last few years has been bloody impressive.

Seems a little harsh to call for a boycott based on a bit of overenthusiastic la la la-ing... Grin

Glastonbury's already sold out, yes?  I'll be in the broader neighborhood right around that time, and this might be worth it if tickets are gettable.  Any information or advice on that score?

Sold out currently, I believe, but check their website coz they hold a final sale of tickets I think of those allocated but not taken up or returned

If you've got the money, you'll get a ticket.  Rock and roll is just like any other capitalist commodity these days!

I prefer to watch it from the comfort of my armchair! That way, I can skip the annoying BBC "look at us on a viewer-funded jolly" presenters  Roll Eyes

And I can skip that song! Macca's rock n roll renditions usually worth watching though!

Just in the interests of wider communication, and not intended to cause a mental breakdown anywhere...here's a festival in mid July that is cancelling.. https://supersonicfestival.com/2020/03/23/supersonic-festival-2020-cancelled/?fbclid=IwAR1qQTdRhcvX45bwftc_SFExsXKgucf_8PuosO7UkMtyVXTiud7jX_aLuIQ

i will be 47 this year.  i went to my first festival when i was 16.  i  have been to at least 1 festival or bike rally as a punter or as staff or as an organiser every year since then. did 8 on the bounce in 2008,  didn't even go home to do the washing.  with the kids.

i am looking at a season of nothing.
no festivals.
this is greatly saddening.
it's my life.
i spend all winter waiting to get my tent out.  to earn some money.  to spend time with my kids in fields.

for many people, Cropredy is the only festival you have ever been to and it is a special place.  it is special for me too but is one of many each year.
i can't begin to describe how big a hole this is.

it'll be fine.......

Very different things, of course, and with the same proviso as above...all the Edinburgh festivals in August are now off https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-edinburgh-east-fife-52121586

Not sure if there was going to be a Westival and the West End Centre Aldershot this year, but as its not opening at all until the start of the September term for classes, performances etc. it seems very unlikely.

Bold or reckless?  I wonder.  Personally, I've not seen one thing that makes me believe that a large gathering of people will be possible in the UK in July.
