Possibly. Bloody reinstatement of licence, I can't decide which festival to go to now.

*sigh*

If The Stones and other high-profile rumour Prince are in, I really should go there.

Lol, I can't exactly see Prince slumming it with the hippies.

The way they announce their lineup last-minute is mondo annoying- last year Roskilde's lineup ran circles around it, but you don't know beforehand.

Glastonbury is so much more than bands on stage, that is why the line up is only confirmed after the tickets have been sold.

I went last year with my two kids and they loved it, we did not give a toss who played. It was a bonus that Coldplay played, but they were the only band that we made a point of catching. The rest of the 5 days we were there was spend "stumbling" across bands playing on tiny stages all over the site.

Yeah, but you see, my alternative is Roskilde, northern europe's 2/3 sized (by choice- they limit the ticket sales so as to create a better experience... supposedly) equivalent of Glastonbury. Thus between the two lineup would be an appropriate way of deciding, since small, interesting bands are pretty much a given on both festivals (though Glastonbury, rather criminally, lacks a world music tent- bad form!).

Looking over last year's lineup there was nothing whatsoever on Glastonbury that I would definately want to hear I couldn't also catch at Roskilde. Plus the schedule seems really tight comparatively- I'm assuming these are all really short sets of an hour or less. No place here for the three-hour magical Neil Young concert of Roskilde 2001!

Fair point, i guess for me the choice is based on the fact that one is a few hours drive and the other is in a completely different country

What about the Jazz/World stage? It's the third biggest stage on site?

After seing the lineup "... - Beverley Knight - Luke Slater - ..." I immediately dismissed it as a thinly disguised normal stage.
