Since the 1970's Worthy Farm in Somerset has played host to some of the biggest names in contemporary music. This weekend it will do it all over again as Glastonbury Festival kicks off the UK festival season in style. Beyonce, Coldplay and U2 are this year's headliners, all set to play in front of a sellout 137,000 fans.

Fans gather at Worthy Farm ahead of the weekend

Which tent is ours?

Of course, Formula 1 fans will recognise Somerset as the birthplace of 2009 World Champion Jenson Button. So excited was he by the prospect of this year's event, Jenson and his team mate set about ensuring they picked the perfect spot for 2011.

An unfortunate scheduling clash with this weekend's European Grand Prix may put paid to the McLaren drivers' best laid plans.

Glastonbury is not just about the headline acts of course, during the next three days hundreds of artists will perform on various stages around the site. To understand the sheer scale of this event, take a look at the full lineup.

Never break the chain

In the spirit of drawing ever more tenuous Formula 1 connections out of thin air, remember last year when Florence And The Machine pulled out a blinding one-off cover of F1's unofficial theme tune, The Chain by Fleetwood Mac. Let's enjoy that moment one more time.

    Eddie J Womble on drums yeh

    if it meant he couldn't be in valencia, i'd take that.

  • Pat W24/06/2011 at 16:42

    I'm looking forward to this. I'm not quite as sold on some of the bookings this year but as ever I will watch and listen and hope to be convinced. :)

    U2 and Elbow are on the 'to watch' list for me, the rest probably at the whim of the BBC really.

  • Pat W24/06/2011 at 17:24

    Telly coverage is on BBC3 from 7pm, alternative options on BBC4 from 8pm. Red Button should have some too on satellite/cable... Freeview will probably stick with Wimbledon until it ends before switching.

  • Lukeh24/06/2011 at 18:00

    Really looking forward to watching U2 later :) even more so for Coldplay tomorrow night.

    Beyonce... nooottt so much.

  • Lukeh24/06/2011 at 18:42

    Yes but as it was the NME I instantly disregarded it. :) Blur should've won it though.

    Yeah its very hard to take anything NME take seriously now. Just found it intruiging though for obvious reasons :)

  • Mr C24/06/2011 at 18:44

    i'd have voted for robbie.

    i like them, it's just everyone i've seen so far is:

    a) middle aged

    b) quite hairy

    c) in need of a wash

  • Lukeh24/06/2011 at 20:07

    c) in need of a wash

    Bono's hogging the facilities

  • Pat W24/06/2011 at 20:07

    I've got Morrissey on BBC4. Never been a massive fan as I know some are but liking this.

    I just don't think I 'get' Mumford & Sons.

    i like them, it's just everyone i've seen so far is:

    I think they work better in the winter. Over the snowy periods I found them BRILLIANT to listen to but not so much in the summer. They just have a cold wintery feel to them to me but they're very good.

  • Mr C24/06/2011 at 20:09

    They just have a cold wintery feel to them to me but they're very good.

  • Mr C24/06/2011 at 21:03

    that's one more thing than coldplay!.. although they've been writing to be fair :)

  • Mr C24/06/2011 at 21:08

    i guessed they'd play mysterious ways based on the guitar edge picked up and christine wasn't even remotely impressed. tough crowd.

    oddly, three songs off of one album in a row here. retro.

  • Lukeh24/06/2011 at 21:08

    that's one more thing than coldplay!.. although they've been writing to be fair :)

    You think he'd find it after all these years really.

    Bono can't be bothered with that singing business.

    I hate that. They've paid to see the band sing, not have a microphone pointed at them

    Found Heliocentrics and now The Wombats on the Red Button instead

  • lou24/06/2011 at 22:47

    I don't know why people find her annoying yet don't complain about Fearne Cotton or Reggie.

    it's something to do with the fact she apparently 'discovers' bands, then pushes them on the public, then once she's sucessfully made them huge she hates them and publicly slags them off.... coldplay for example. bah!

    she does it with heaps of other bands too. not just coldplay. she sucks.

  • lou24/06/2011 at 22:51

    So there's no Darwin Deez or Cage the Elephant sets on bbc. I forgot how disappointing glastonbury can be when you like bands that dont get much coverage.

    It's not unusual for bands to make great debut albums with years of perfecting and honing, whilst trying to break the scene. Only to struggle to replicate it when record companies demand another

    Some bands promise lots and don't make it past year 2 of fame

    Come Together, on this album, a personal favourite

  • lou24/06/2011 at 22:52

    Didn't know she changed her tune.

    she said something on the radio once or twice, and then there was a rather memorable never mind the buzzcocks when she openly admitted she didn't like coldplay...

    they dedicated a song to her a few times and everything. silly woman.

  • Lukeh24/06/2011 at 22:52

    Didn't know she changed her tune.

    she just does that though. She did do something like that with muse at one point but not to the scale lou mentioned with coldplay.

    But I suppose if that's how she is with bands then her loss... just think as a mainstream presenter of music you'd be more consistent with what you broadcast...

  • Bassano24/06/2011 at 22:52

    So there's no Darwin Deez or Cage the Elephant sets on bbc. I forgot how disappointing glastonbury can be when you like bands that dont get much coverage.

    There's nothing like being there, if only the BBC could iPlayer every set

    Nowt wrong in that

  • startledbunny24/06/2011 at 22:53

    So do I. I can't think of a single band I dislike after liking them.

    I can think of several examples the other way round.

  • Pat W24/06/2011 at 22:53

    So there's no Darwin Deez or Cage the Elephant sets on bbc. I forgot how disappointing glastonbury can be when you like bands that dont get much coverage.

    Yeah they like to repeat things that have been on already instead.

  • Pat W24/06/2011 at 22:54

    she said something on the radio once or twice, and then there was a rather memorable never mind the buzzcocks when she openly admitted she didn't like coldplay...

    Sure that wasn't a joke on a comedy panel game?

  • Lukeh24/06/2011 at 22:55

    Nowt wrong in that

    Not at all but I just find it hard to take her seriously I suppose because of how she can be with bands. Plus I can't stand her presenting style anyways. She's just a double whammy of annoying :)

  • Bassano24/06/2011 at 22:55

    But I suppose if that's how she is with bands then her loss... just think as a mainstream presenter of music you'd be more consistent with what you broadcast...

    Jo Whiley is NOT mainstream

    Just cos you like a band now, doesn't mean you have to pledge allegiance to them

    One side becomes fickle, the other sycophantic. It's a lose/lose scenario

  • lou24/06/2011 at 22:55

    Some bands promise lots and don't make it past year 2 of fame

    i think it's a matter of opinion and tastes, i've loved every coldplay album (x and y isn't too great tho) it doesn't make it fact, and just because Ms Whiley says they're good or not doesn't make it fact either.. what i don't like is that she appeared to change her tune at the time it became uncool to like coldplay. She also now can't even admit (or she couldn't) that their earlier songs that she once loved were very good.

    I'm just don't like her, i find her patronising on the radio and annoying to listen to, her disliking coldplay in such a fashion as she did didn't help :)

  • lou24/06/2011 at 22:55

    There's nothing like being there, if only the BBC could iPlayer every set

    ah maybe one day :)

  • Bassano24/06/2011 at 22:56

    So do I. I can't think of a single band I dislike after liking them.

    Stereophonics

  • lou24/06/2011 at 22:56

    Sure that wasn't a joke on a comedy panel game?

    completely. but there have been a few jokes on radio 1 since along the lines of 'she's not their biggest fan'

  • Pat W24/06/2011 at 22:57

    Just cos you like a band now, doesn't mean you have to pledge allegiance to them

    Absolutely, quite a few bands I fall in and out of love with regularly.

  • Lukeh24/06/2011 at 22:58

    for exmaple with zane lowe now I could happily listen to what he has to say about new bands or new music or old music too just because to me I could trust what he has to say and what knowledge he has with music, and he's actually interesting to listen to. I just don't have that with jo whiley whatsoever.

  • lou24/06/2011 at 22:59

    hehe Zane loves Friendly Fires i can't wait for his reaction tomorrow. His interview with them when they released Pala was so funny :)

    So do I. I can't think of a single band I dislike after liking them.

    Stereophonics

    Yep, although I still like the first two albums and Dakota and a few other songs. But I really went off them for a while.

    Biffy Clyro is another. Loved the first three albums, then the style changed and I went off them totally. Tough for bands to strike a balance between moving on to stop being staid and samey, and coming up with something different which is good.

  • Lukeh24/06/2011 at 23:00

    Heheehehe. Granny Turismo :D

    He has good knowledge and his TV style is okay but his radio persona is all OUT THERE and ON THE EDGE and RAH and just shut up play the damn song.

    I played them in 2008, didn't know who they were at the time.

  • Lukeh24/06/2011 at 23:01

    Bono are on BBC2 know if Mr C is still around

  • Lukeh24/06/2011 at 23:02

    *U2, even. Not just bono, deary me

  • lou24/06/2011 at 23:04

    I played them in 2008, didn't know who they were at the time.

    Jump in the pool is one of my all time favourite songs, every time it's played i can't help but smile. no matter how upset/grumpy/annoyed i am at the time :)

  • Lukeh24/06/2011 at 23:06

    Was it on the f1 they kept playing it? For some reason it reminds me of Monaco, maybe it was used with the Webber stuff... I dunno.

    One of those mental images you get when you listen to a song.

  • Pat W24/06/2011 at 23:07

    Wow, can hardly hear them over the rain

  • Bassano24/06/2011 at 23:07

    Yep, although I still like the first two albums and Dakota and a few other songs. But I really went off them for a while.

    Word Gets Around is superb, as is Performance And Cocktails. JEEP onwards is downhill fast in my eyes. MOR rubbish

    Bands move on, as they should. Sometimes a fans taste will grow with them, other times they move in opposite directions

  • Lukeh24/06/2011 at 23:08

    Larry doesn't seem that happy does he?

  • lou24/06/2011 at 23:08

    Was it on the f1 they kept playing it? For some reason it reminds me of Monaco, maybe it was used with the Webber stuff... I dunno.

    it was used for the introduction to the Aussie GP qualifying 2009.. :)

  • Lukeh24/06/2011 at 23:08

    it was used for the introduction to the Aussie GP qualifying 2009.. :)

    I have no idea why I associate it with monaco then.

  • Bassano24/06/2011 at 23:13

    Should we be back in the Daily or is everyone watching something from Glast?

  • Lukeh24/06/2011 at 23:15

    I literally have no idea what Bono is on about :)

  • Lukeh24/06/2011 at 23:15

    Should we be back in the Daily or is everyone watching something from Glast?

    Still watching the BBC2 stuff here

  • startledbunny24/06/2011 at 23:27

    Didn't know they were Irish?

  • Bassano24/06/2011 at 23:29

    Is a good album

  • Lukeh24/06/2011 at 23:29

    Gnarls?

    Cee Lo is on BBC2 at the mo, did a lovely version of it just there

  • startledbunny24/06/2011 at 23:29

    Gnarls?

    Yeah

    Sample was from a Spaghetti Western apparently.

  • Lukeh24/06/2011 at 23:29

    me neither! didn't even know what they looked like though.. just loved their music.

    I will happily listen to that one song of theres ;)

  • Bassano24/06/2011 at 23:30

    Sounds about right

    I like his Star Wars costumery adoration

  • lou24/06/2011 at 23:30

    i hope they do i can't talk such a tune :)

  • Lukeh24/06/2011 at 23:30

    Tonight he's going for the 80's wrestler entrance look

  • startledbunny24/06/2011 at 23:30

    For some reason I had the game "Doom" in mind.

    must check it out then

  • Pat W24/06/2011 at 23:31

    I want to like The Kills but something about them puts me off, just can't work out why

  • Pat W25/06/2011 at 19:52

    Has anybody been watching today?

    I've got Jimmy Eat World on Freeview. Apparently, Friendly Fires are supposed to be on 3 at some point but I keep checking and they aren't there

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 19:53

    I think they were just on. We have Jimmy too.

  • Pat W25/06/2011 at 19:54

    Ahh okay, must admit I turned it off when stuff I didn't like was on both available channels.. must have rejoined too late

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 19:55

    Mr Friendly Fire was playing a cowbell at one point, then there were some hula dancing girls.

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 19:57

    I'm here for the night now for some glasto fun times.

    Elbow on BBC3!

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 20:04

    Elbow on BBC3!

    Think I'll switch. Not quite sure what has come on the red button..

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 20:06

    I like how the Elbow singer looks like he's just turned up from work

  • Pat W25/06/2011 at 20:14

    Hahah, reverse Mexican wave

    "I love how you're doing these noises spontaneously"

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 20:17

    I was going to say this Elbow chap is slightly embarrassing, like he might break out dad dancing any second. But he's gone up in my estimation now. Good wave.

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 20:22

    At least he admits he's stealing from Freddie.

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 20:22

    100,000 people and I see 4 oompa loompas in the crowd. Brilliant.

    aahhh and they are tweeting pics too! <£

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 21:36

    every time i've seen them live on tv or in concert Chris just loves what he does, they all dance around and have a great time. Best surprise was seeing them sing billie jean and they were all giggling.

    it's a fabulous live presence, even through the telly. In comparison noah and the whales earlier felt like they were at a funeral, it was miserable.

    Such a huge, huge difference,

    in fairness their album is miserable... never follow up a happy album about getting together with Laura Marling with an album about how cold hearted she was when they broke up is the lesson :)

  • Pat W25/06/2011 at 21:45

    They haven't lost anything on their older stuff have they, good lighting show too

  • lou25/06/2011 at 21:46

    aaaahhhhhhhhh!!!! <3

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 21:46

  • Pat W25/06/2011 at 22:03

    This is really going back a bit isn't it? Think it was on parachutes but not 100%

    Final track on it I think. I do like it.

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:03

    Final track on it I think. I do like it.

    Yeah it's lovely. Just surprised how far back they've gone, and that's a very good thing :)

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:03

    This is really going back a bit isn't it? Think it was on parachutes but not 100%

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:04

    Shiver was on parachutes?!

    pretty sure? why?

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:04

    Holy crap, i've heard that song for years and never ever realised. my life is a lie. :o

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:05

    solo for Johnny!

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:05

    Holy crap, i've heard that song for years and never ever realised. my life is a lie. :o

    parachutes is an amazing album

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:06

    parachutes is an amazing album

    Agreed. I just totally didn't realise shiver was on it for some reason. *facepalm*

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:07

    Agreed. I just totally didn't realise shiver was on it for some reason. *facepalm*

    hehe it's before Spies i think..

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:07

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:07

    New song!!!!!

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:08

    hehe it's before Spies i think..

    it could have been on an EP but i'm pretty sure it's on parachutes. will check later.

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 22:08

    Shiver is second on Parachutes, yes.

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:08

    it could have been on an EP but i'm pretty sure it's on parachutes. will check later.

    I shalln't dispute your coldplay knowledge :)

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:08

    Shiver is second on Parachutes, yes.

    thank you :)

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:09

    Awww they messed it up!

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:09

    ahhhhh!!! Chris you legend! <3

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:09

    Shiver is second on Parachutes, yes.

    Thank you, and apologies all round for my shocking memory!

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:10

    awww when they interview Chris he'll beat himself up about this. can't have his songs wrong. it's kinda cute.

    they played this at a german gig the other week. lovely.

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 22:10

    Thank you, and apologies all round for my shocking memory!

    Hehe. Parachutes I know. Very little else :)

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:11

    you can totally tell they locked Chris out of the studio of 4 weeks to get the other band members trying out new things etc. :)

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:12

    YAY!!!!

  • Pat W25/06/2011 at 22:14

    Yeah it's lovely. Just surprised how far back they've gone, and that's a very good thing :)

    I kind of think a band shouldn't be allowed to headline Glasto until they've got 10 years of material behind them. And it must be a rule of playing the festival that they must include old stuff.

    I'm jumping between Coldplay and Chemicals right now

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:15

    Nice to see coldplay getting plenty of love on twitter too. Refreshing from the usual hating on them for the sake of it attitude.

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:15

    Nice to see coldplay getting plenty of love on twitter too. Refreshing from the usual hating on them for the sake of it attitude.

    it's cause normal coldplay fans lay low because the bashers are nasty... but when coldplay headline glasto no one can contain their excitement!

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:16

    I kind of think a band shouldn't be allowed to headline Glasto until they've got 10 years of material behind them. And it must be a rule of playing the festival that they must include old stuff.

    I'd agree with that. A band should never forget what made them what they are as the fans never, ever will.

    Depressingly muse are playing Origin of Symmetry songs for the last time ever last month so the band say...

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:16

    Gosh I like politik. soooo much. *hugs tv*

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:17

    Depressingly muse are playing Origin of Symmetry songs for the last time ever last month so the band say...

    Chris has said they'll always play the classics cause he understands how much they mean to people.

  • Pat W25/06/2011 at 22:17

    Chemicals are doing Star Guitar, I'm staying on that for a little bit :)

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:17

    OOOOOOHHHHH!!!!! VIVA LA VIDA!!!

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:17

    Chris has said they'll always play the classics cause he understands how much they mean to people.

    I'm glad he's not an idiot. #stoopidmatt

  • Pat W25/06/2011 at 22:17

    Nice to see coldplay getting plenty of love on twitter too. Refreshing from the usual hating on them for the sake of it attitude.

    Like U2 last night.

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:17

    Yay for viva la vida!!! :D

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:18

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:29

    So what'll be in the encore

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 22:30

    aahhhh!! they are true coldplay fans!! viva calls to the band :) <3

    It'd be better if there weren't two distinct sections doing it at different times :)

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:30

    Jo shhhhhhhh.. we want more coldplay

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:31

    It'd be better if there weren't two distinct sections doing it at different times :)

    hehehe. it's a big crowd I suppose!

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 22:31

    Jo shhhhhhhh.. we want more coldplay

    She's been quite nice about them so far.

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:31

    It'd be better if there weren't two distinct sections doing it at different times :)

    in a smaller gig like Wembley they are in time.

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:31

    She's been quite nice about them so far.

    am impressed, but i don't want to hear her..

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 22:31

    am impressed, but i don't want to hear her..

    Same as U2, I guess. This encore business is confusing.

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:31

    CLOCKS!

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:31

    clocks!!

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:32

    Same as U2, I guess. This encore business is confusing.

    i'd happily just watch the crowds till they came back :)

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:33

    Now I know simon pegg is actually there I reckon simon pegg and jonny were swapping between songs. Those sneaky boys.

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:33

    kinda hoping for Lovers in Japan but that may be a wild hope. it'll be great whatever they play tho.. more confetti please!

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:34

    Now I know simon pegg is actually there I reckon simon pegg and jonny were swapping between songs. Those sneaky boys.

    i'll find a video of Simon singing with them after this to blow your mind a bit. :)

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:34

    i'll find a video of Simon singing with them after this to blow your mind a bit. :)

    Well it's already had a bit of a blowing thanks to a brilliant performance so you may as well finish it off :D

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:35

    have they played Every teardrop yet? am assuming that'll be played... seeing as it's their new single?

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:36

    have they played Every teardrop yet? am assuming that'll be played... seeing as it's their new single?

    Nope not yet. Maybe to close the encore? It has that.. ending to a gig type of feel to it... if you get what I mean

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:36

    Fix you approaching?

  • lou25/06/2011 at 22:36

    May well see them more than once if i get the chance. Album is out in Autumn tho so we may have to wait a while.

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 22:56

    Twas a moment for minds to be blown worldwide

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 23:10

    Wow the production costs on the new Batman film are poor

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 23:22

    Dear Dude and Jo, Chris can't watch or hear his own live performances in public cause he can be too critical ;)

    Dude and Jo look to be getting very cosy.

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 23:23

    I finally got round to buying their albums with my itunes vouchers. Absolutely awesome :D

  • Christine25/06/2011 at 23:27

    That's Pete Tong?? Of "it's all gone a bit Pete Tong" fame? He doesn't look like I'd imagined.

  • Lukeh25/06/2011 at 23:28

    I'm surprised at the lack of coverage, only seen one song. A few people I've never heard of are geting more promo.

  • lou25/06/2011 at 23:32

    Chemical Brothers not my type of thing at all so time for me to head off to sleep. Night guys

  • Pat W25/06/2011 at 23:40

    See ya.

    They said it would only be these two.

  • Pat W25/06/2011 at 23:47

    Watching Janelle again now on Freeview red. She's doing a Jackson 5 cover :)

  • lou26/06/2011 at 00:10

    They are playing Aloe Blacc AGAIN

  • Lukeh26/06/2011 at 20:29

    Anyone watching Glasto on BBC3?

  • Bassano26/06/2011 at 20:30

    Anyone watching Glasto on BBC3?

    Ooh, I completely forgot. Will turn the tv on, who's playing?

  • Lukeh26/06/2011 at 20:30

    Ooh, I completely forgot. Will turn the tv on, who's playing?

    Pendulum at the moment, opened my eyes quite a bit. Not what I was expecting at all but in a good way!

  • Lukeh26/06/2011 at 20:31

    Although they're just finishing. Think kaiser Chiefs might be on now.

  • Bassano26/06/2011 at 20:31

    Can't say I know them. They looked a bit Rock, were they?

  • Lukeh26/06/2011 at 20:32

    Can't say I know them. They looked a bit Rock, were they?

    Well I always assumed they were dancey stuff with DJ's as their sound is very electronic. But turns out they are quite rock-y :)

  • Bassano26/06/2011 at 20:34

    Well I always assumed they were dancey stuff with DJ's as their sound is very electronic. But turns out they are quite rock-y :)

    RATM-esque?

  • Lukeh26/06/2011 at 20:37

    RATM-esque?

    I wouldn't say that much. I'm trying to think of what to compare their sound to but everytime I've heard their stuff I always assumed it was a bunch of DJ's because it has that dance/house 'boom boom boom' vibe to it but with a bit of a rock feel too.

    I realise I'm explaining it like an old man but I'm not sure how else to explain it :D but yeah, was pretty impressed after seeing them just there as they weren't what I thought at all and they seem really good live.

  • Lukeh26/06/2011 at 20:39

    Ricky Wilson's looking a lot trimmer with the Kaisers now. Wondered where they'd been,

  • Bassano26/06/2011 at 20:40

    I've always loved "I predict A Riot". Nothing has topped their first album

  • Lukeh26/06/2011 at 20:42

    Oh blimey, I didn;t realise Beyonce was following up QOTSA... that's... an interesting combo :D

  • Bassano26/06/2011 at 20:53

    Oh blimey, I didn;t realise Beyonce was following up QOTSA... that's... an interesting combo :D

    Half the audience will leave between those sets D

  • Lukeh26/06/2011 at 20:56

    "Highlights, Ricky?"

    "No it's natural"

    Giggles would be proud :)

  • Pat W26/06/2011 at 20:57

    Different stages though?

  • Lukeh26/06/2011 at 20:58

    Different stages though?

    Ohh, they said qotsa were on the pyramid stage but they must've got it mixed up. Guessed Kaiser Chiefs were highlights from earlier but I guess they were live then.

  • Bassano26/06/2011 at 20:58

    "No it's natural"

    :D

    Different stages though?

    Makes more sense

  • Bassano26/06/2011 at 21:05

    Hearing Zane say "Purupheral Vusion" is funny

  • Pat W26/06/2011 at 21:05

    I saw a bit of Paul Simon's set whilst at mum's. Stepdad couldn't believe how old he looked.

    Haven't seen anything else today.

    Agree with Lukeh about Pendulum, don't like them at all on the radio but live they can be good and energetic. Missed them today though.

  • Bassano26/06/2011 at 21:06

    Does Beyonce really need a trailer?

  • Bassano26/06/2011 at 21:10

    Does Beyonce really need a trailer?

    Time for the Red Button, she's on

  • Lukeh26/06/2011 at 21:17

    Call me crazy for watching this but she doesn't appear to sing much.

  • Bassano26/06/2011 at 21:19

    Call me crazy for watching this but she doesn't appear to sing much.

    I refuse to put myself through it, so switched

    Is she talking a lot of dancing?

  • Lukeh26/06/2011 at 21:20

    Is she talking a lot of dancing?

    Not talking or anything, she's going through the songs but I just find it a bit odd that she doesn't sing any of her choruses and just dances to it :) but then sings the verses mostly

  • Lukeh26/06/2011 at 21:24

    Keytars and everything! Cooool.

  • Bassano26/06/2011 at 21:27

    Poor cardio :D

  • Lukeh26/06/2011 at 21:31

    Bored of Ms Beyonce now I'm afraid and switching but I lasted 20 minutes, that's something commendable... I think? :)

  • Bassano26/06/2011 at 21:36

    Virgin Media have had 5 options all through the weekend, pieces are fairly short though but they rotate quite a lot. Surprisingly good work for them
