esvoa's Glastonbury 2011

Timeline, mostly my half-hearted live-tweeting, from my Glasto experience.

Insane. The full Glastonbury line-up is enormous: 59 official stages, doesn't include everything else that's going on

Glasto stuff is loosely assembled but not packed, things still on the to-do list, and I'm leaving London 2am Tues for Stonehenge solstice!

@esvoa Your list reads "tent, socks, lesbian, loo roll, lesbian, bin bags, lesbian, batteries, sleeping bag, lesbian...".

I'm feeling like I'm in one of those dreams where you wake up and realise the exam you haven't revised for yet has just started.

My #glasto @clashfinder is now complete and trimmed to show only the stages with acts I've selected that day. Woot.

Note to those going to Glasto, this is your weather for the weekend... #Glastorain #notjealoushonestly @esvoa

Dammit, I think my knackeredness, a pessimistic forecast (95+% cloud cover at sunrise) and packing incompletion mean no Stonehenge solstice.

@esvoa I do genuinely hope you don't get a bog! I also hope #lotsofsocks and #Glastorain trend.

Two more hours at work then #glasto can officially begin!

So tired I forgot to eat lunch. Start of the Glasto road trip delayed accordingly, to get some energy.

@esvoa you realise you're an idiot, right?

Simon Y @esvoa

Right, that's it. To-do list to-done, lunch eaten (just), and the sun's shining. Time for phase 1 of Glasto!

Here! West car park, now to join the queue - gates open in an hour...

Rush hour queues, standard workday! #glasto Heavy rain came in 40mins ago, queue was moving well but stopped since 9.

Glasto update: queueing by 7:30, at the gates about 10:30, tents up before 1. Not so bad!

We're definitely, definitely in wellies for the duration here. Mudfest. But it's awesome.

Amazing fireworks as the twilight comes to an end. Muddy, but a great day.

Glastonbury's amazing... and apparently I'm famous! Thanks to Nikki and Ollie for the tip-off.

Yesterday: passive day but great fun. Not much rain; 9001-spot Twister board; Euro premiere of Arcade Fire film; serious mud; new friends.

Now watching Group Love at The Park stage, drinking a pint of Glastonbury farm mud. Trying not to think about loo queues.

Mona at The John Peel - massive tent! Just found a semi-secret stage in The Park with an awesome line-up!

Emmy The Great at Oxylers In West, hiding from the rain that's just starting and waiting for Guillemots.
