I suppose if I start waiting about 2-3 hours before they come on, I'll be able to get a good spot hopefully. Has the schedule for the gig been released yet? I haven't been able to find it. Wouldn't mind seeing metronomy and the horrors either.
All stage times are on the BST app
twostep - this has been bugging me for ages. Is your profile pic from the box set sketch from Portlandia?

And yeah planning to get in around 3 o'clock - I want to be nearish but not too bothered about right at the front.

Re.: support acts.

I like what I've heard of Kitty Davis & Lewis and Drenge (especially the latter. Killing Joke meets grunge) but the rest not really fussed.

Metronomy are a fantastic band and probably the only band other than blur for which there will be a lot of die hard fans of there.

Drenge are decent too

So excited about Teleman and Roots Manuva. Not sure I can think of two better support acts at any Blur gig I've seen (except Pulp and Supergrass!).

Saw some pictures earlier and the barrier went all along the front (as usual) but forms a square til about half way back. What's this for? Is it General Admission?

It's very busy, I'm here. Beck is awesome!!! I can also confirm the sound pisses all over 2012.

Rain showers as opposed to heavy rain. I can cope with that, though it's annoying for my glasses.
