Am I the only person who cannot hear a bloody thing the performers are saying with their chat in-between songs?

We are only by the Wadworth lorry! Not in Northampton!

You are not alone > I couldn't hear most of the "chat" either

Well I was able to hear most of the chat from halfway up the field although a lot of Al Stewart’s chat was inaudible

I spend most of my life trying to lip read and ascertain what people are saying, especially if there is background noise, so I missed a lot of the lyrics and banter  Undecided

Do I take it that last year's rear speakers / screen behind the sound tower was just for the 50th Anniversary? On Saturday I was 20 yards in front of the top Mario's Ice Cream Van, just off to the bar side, and the sound quality & volume was pretty poor. It was hard to hear the on stage banter and difficult to make out a lot of the lyrics. The problem seemed to be the sound 'blowing away' with the wind, a problem largely alleviated by last year's rear speakers.

Now you come to mention it yes the speakers there last year were not in place this year so hopefully the organisers will put them in place again next year.
