The Great Glastonbury Cleanup

If you care about the environment, and I know I do, then you’ll be pleased to note that they have been able to clean up the site of this year’s Glastonbury Festival in what seems like record time:

[This has been] one of Glastonbry's greenest festivals in years. 

The clean up after Glastonbury Festival 2019 is 90% complete according to organiser Emily Eavis who has described it as a “massive improvement” on the last.

According to The Guardian, this year’s clean-up is expected to be complete in 4 weeks thanks to the continued good weather. In 2017, it looks teams over 6 weeks to complete the clean-up operation.

On Tuesday, Eavis published a post on Instagram saying that this year, “93.3% of all tents were taken home” after analysing the results of an Ariel site photograph before and after the event.

I’ve yet to figure out how you can abandon a tent, but it makes sense. You spend four or five days throwing up in one, why take it with you?

Liam Gallagher's Mega Reunion

You know, this makes a lot of sense:

Liam Gallagher has revealed that he’s been trying “for years” to book a gig featuring OasisThe Stone Roses and The Verve, also hinting at “something big” coming next summer.

The former Oasis frontman releases his debut solo album ‘As You Were’ this Friday (October 6), but took to Twitter earlier today (October 4) to tell a fan how he wants the three bands to unite for one big gig. “What a night,” he said, “Some people need to get [off their] high chairs”.

“So many extraordinary people on this planet,” Liam added. “We need to come together, c’mon music is power”.

Gallagher also teased his plans for an event next summer, saying: “Stay tuned but I’m gonna round up the troops for something… all are welcome”.

Next year is a "fallow year" for Glastonbury, and so the timing is right for a massive outdoor festival featuring several big acts. Gallagher's idea makes sense--bring together three defunct, almost impossible to reunite bands and have them play over the course of three days, each of those three headlining. You could get five bands to play before each of them come on, and charge whatever you like. It would be a mini-Glastonbury, and if you did it in Manchester, all the better.
