So there's no Glastonbury this year.   The moo moos won't be moving, so there'll be no Glasto thread for all the festival posts to fall into.

We've already picked one ourselves.   ms pap agreed to go to Download 2018 while pissed up down at Liverpool's Swan pub, the go-to for the city's rockers.   She regretted it in the morning.   I made her a playlist.  She regrets it every morning now.  Arf.

What are your festival plans, Sotonians?

Farnham Beerex, same every year, jollyboys day out. They even do jazz (shit). That's just about all my festival going. Been to too many to actually get excited about standing in a field drinking shit expensive booze and eating vegan burgers...each unto their own I guess. Like music, but in small venues these days.

Young Adult and Teenage Mutant booking theirs already obvs.

My festival of choice, Supernormal, is also not running this year. Will probably go to Le Guess Who again cos it was great last year.

But I'm in the market for another domestic one. Small-scale hopefully, and eclectic. Will take recommendations.

We've not got any pencilled in. Probably more holidays instead. Our usual 2 weeks off for Glastonbury and recovery is likely to be a trip to Italy to see relatives. May go to Common People if there's anyone decent and Victorious.

Off to Primavera with krGF and a few pals in the summer. Enjoyed it when I went a few years ago, very much looking forward to it again. 

 

Also going to All Points East here in London too. Line up looks great.

Unfortunately for me, Mrs D_P has secured free VIP Corporate all you can eat & drink tickets for the one real festival we have down here.

I say unfortunately because she picked Ricky Martin. The only consolation I have is the fact that providing I get mortalled on the free booze I may be able to excuse wobbling to some of his hits later on.

Meanwhile on a more serious note

Arctic Monkeys will be back touring this year 

The sole UK appearance announced so far is a headline slot at Glasgow’s TRNSMT festival on 1 July.

My kids love it so we’re going to Green Man again.  Got other family members going this year too so will have some onsite babysitters.
