- Rep Power
The only groups I would be remotely interested in seeing in that line up would be Prodigy and possibly Pendulem. The rest I would avoid like a rash in fear of getting bottled by a fat kneckbeard yelling TIMMMAAYY!

I've had a much better time at the past two Glastonbury festivals despite the rain and mud. Last year was good though, lots of sunshine, lots of different types of music and all night parties. The silent disco's are great and go on til the wee hours. Everyone wears wireless headphones to listen to the DJ so everyone can party and not keep other campers awake. Wicked idea. It's so weird walking past the tent and watching hundreds of people dance to silence.

Its a shame u judge all metal festivals by 1 bad expiriance
(however reading/leeds isnt metal and that anticts there are childish and annoying, camping away from the arena helps)
and i am really looking forward to the prodigy!!
dont like the majority of bands that play glastonbury and t in the park etc so thoes festivals wouldnt b much fun to me. silent disco was at leeds last couple of years and enjoyed that but the best (none band) was the bike shows at download loads of ace tricks and stunts being performed all weekend
