For me it is too corporate now, whilst I accept it has to diversify, it is almost as if they feel they have to get the ;likes of Diana Ross to prove some point.
It has gone from its original aim and is now more about fashion than music, I love the fact that thousands of Vegans cannot see the irony of spending several days on a working dairy farm.
Sadly music has changed greatly in the last 15 years, perhaps with the demise of an actual physical record/cd collection these days, bands rarely attract the same followings they used to, the headlining acts at Glastonbury are all well established acts with the odd rapper thrown in.
Long gone are the mega bands, when was the last time a band went to superstardom, possibly the Arctic Monkeys & Kings of Leon and thats 16-17 years ago.
Four years ago Fontaines DC & Idles looked like they might break through to be mega, but truth is although they are popular they have not broken through to be massive, both half way down the bill on the Other Stage.
This is not to slate them, I though both performances were excellent and amongst the highlights of what I watched, however it shows how Glastonbury has changed and indeed music has changed, bands struggle to get past the 2-3,000 capacity venues these days.
I know Pat will point to Idles doing 5 nights at Brixton, but outside of London they can't do that and are still playing provincial venues of 2,000. Thats a reflection on the music business these days not Idles.
So look at this weekend's big gigs all old well established bands as headliners, not just at Glastonbury but elsewhere Rolling Stones at Hyde Park, Elton John at Bristol, the Eagles at various stadiums, all these three acts have been going for 50 years or more.
In 15 years time will it be an 80 year old Bono & U2 headlining ? or the still youthful Muse who will be barely in their 60's.
Highlights for me
Jesus & Mary Chain

4. Idles, again only fleeting bits but they looked good

An interesting piece
Sadio Mane, a Senegalese soccer star, earns approximately $10.2 million annually. He gave the world a rude awakening after some fans were flabbergasted when they saw him carrying a cracked iPhone 11. His response was awesome:
"Why would I want ten Ferraris, 20 diamond watches, and two jet planes? I starved, I worked in the fields, played barefoot, and I didn't go to school. Now I can help people. I prefer to build schools and give poor people food or clothing. I have built schools and a stadium, provide clothes, shoes, and food for people in extreme poverty.
In addition, I give 70 euros per month to all people from a very poor Senegalese region in order to contribute to their family economy. I do not need to display luxury cars, luxury homes, trips, and even planes. I prefer that my people receive some of what life has given me."

When Toby Alderweireld joined Saints he was 25, but in terms of experience he wasn't much ahead of our new guy, he had played 91 games for Ajax in the Eridivisie, but only 10 plus 2 as sub in 2 years in La Liga for Atletico Madrid where he had stagnated a little

Saw a blogger who did an interview with Matthew Le Tissier regarding his sacking from Sky and his recent thoughts on the World etc.
I havent watched all of it only a couple of 6-7 minute clips, in those he gave reasonably logical reasoning as to his views etc and why he holds them
It is up there on You tube now cant remember the name though but I am sure it comes up fairly easily if you search his name
