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!).

Ticket sales for Hyde Park increase after Foo Fighters cancel Wembley show:

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.
