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 http://t.co/2V4gY7Q
Simon Y @esvoa
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...".
Simon Y @esvoa
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.
Simon Y @esvoa
My #glasto @clashfinder is now complete and trimmed to show only the stages with acts I've selected that day. Woot. http://t.co/92EMryT&

Note to those going to Glasto, this is your weather for the weekend... #Glastorain #notjealoushonestly @esvoa
Simon Y @esvoa
Dammit, I think my knackeredness, a pessimistic forecast (95+% cloud cover at sunrise) and packing incompletion mean no Stonehenge solstice.
Rich N @RichN_Tog
@esvoa I do genuinely hope you don't get a bog! I also hope #lotsofsocks and #Glastorain trend.
Simon Y @esvoa
Two more hours at work then #glasto can officially begin!
Simon Y @esvoa
So tired I forgot to eat lunch. Start of the Glasto road trip delayed accordingly, to get some energy.
Clair @merialc
@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!
Simon Y @esvoa
Here! West car park, now to join the queue - gates open in an hour...
Simon Y @esvoa
Rush hour queues, standard workday! #glasto Heavy rain came in 40mins ago, queue was moving well but stopped since 9.
Simon Y @esvoa
Glasto update: queueing by 7:30, at the gates about 10:30, tents up before 1. Not so bad!
Simon Y @esvoa
We're definitely, definitely in wellies for the duration here. Mudfest. But it's awesome.
Simon Y @esvoa
Amazing fireworks as the twilight comes to an end. Muddy, but a great day.
Nikki Turbo @nikkiturbo

Simon Y @esvoa
Glastonbury's amazing... and apparently I'm famous! Thanks to Nikki and Ollie for the tip-off. http://t.co/fCP4dgx

Yesterday: passive day but great fun. Not much rain; 9001-spot Twister board; Euro premiere of Arcade Fire film; serious mud; new friends.
Simon Y @esvoa
Now watching Group Love at The Park stage, drinking a pint of Glastonbury farm mud. Trying not to think about loo queues.
Simon Y @esvoa
Mona at The John Peel - massive tent! Just found a semi-secret stage in The Park with an awesome line-up!
Simon Y @esvoa
Emmy The Great at Oxylers In West, hiding from the rain that's just starting and waiting for Guillemots.
