Bookmarks - Internet stuff: Glastonbury

A sharp piece from Johnny Dee on The First Post which explores how Glastonbury now takes £200 from people to shout over their heads to the people on the sofa:

Glastonbury is now a mainstream festival with a running order that's dictated by the primetime TV audience rather than the people who actually attend. And if you are lucky enough to get there, the huge runways taken up by the BBC cameras leave you in no doubt who the artists are performing to.
It's worth mentioning, though, that his closing words feel a bit tacked on and a bit "but then I woke up and it was all a dream."
