Laughed at the mtv presenter saying it was a recipe for disaster. "you had kids who'd had three beers before 11am"

Ive had that waiting in car park for it to open before I put a tent up. It looked epic and horrendous at the same time.
 
Feel guilty saying it as he died just after the documentary was filmed, but that Michael Lang comes across a right head-in-the-sand knacker. Even when the chaos was staring him in the face just wouldn't admit to it.
The press conference at the end he claimed people were tearing down the fences so they could have a souvenir to take home because they loved it so much 🤣
Every soul on those clips looks obnoxious as fuck and Christ that music is proper shit too. Ill
Give it a watch like
It was an ugly festival, all that concrete and tarmac. Terrible profiteering, taking food off people as they went in 🤷‍♂️the place needed burning down. I've never been to a festival as ugly as that or treated the customers with such disdain.
Having said that, there is no excuse for rape and sexual assaults.

Were you there?
 
Poor grammar on my part. I missed out an "appeared" 😉
I'm staggered anyone thought it was a good location for a festival. It looked like a blueprint of how not to produce a festival.
Shame like, was going to pick your brain on it!

Madness really - far too much tarmac and concrete, imagine the heat coming off it! They were just desperate to make a profit and not have people sneaking in for free.

Strange they didn’t mention the lad who died unless I completely missed it?

Definitely worth a watch even if you’ve seen the one from a few years ago.

There’s a good podcast on it too.

Tell you what though, on both documentaries John Scher has no shame at all and thinks he’s completely blameless.
