    Thanks, Boourns. You're as terrific as a Coachella-topping Massive Attack set.

    camp in pennard hill just below the tipi field, don't sleep, don't shower, sit in the stone circle wednesday night to purchase your extracurricular supplies, eat at la grande bouffe at least once (located by the jazz world stage last time i went), spend half a day enjoying the healing field and craft field, catch a sunset/sunrise/bon fire at the stone circle, don't expect to see all the bands you think you are going to see, catch at least one headliner on the pyramid stage, explore the farm.

    Glastonbury festival has been granted a new 10-year licence by Mendip district council, only the second time the event has been approved without a public hearing.

    Previously, licences for the festival have been subject to scrutiny in a hearing because of objections from the public about noise management and from police, fire or ambulance services concerned about safety. There was, however, no opposition to the new application, submitted by Glastonbury’s director, Robert Richards, which will see the festival run until 2024.

    “That’s fantastic news. It’s so good to have a plan that will help everything at Worthy Farm move forward,” festival organiser Emily Eavis said in a statement. “I’d just like to say a huge thank you to all the people who have contributed so much to Glastonbury festival over the last 44 years. I really do believe that the best is yet to come.”

    Jeannette Marsh, chair of the licensing board, explained that those involved in decision were not “complacent”. “Just because Glastonbury festival now has a licence until 2024 … doesn’t mean it escapes the close scrutiny that any event this size will have. We will continue to work with the organisers to ensure this remains one of the safest events anywhere, and if we have any doubts about this we will take action.”

    The BBC reports that the new licence could see the number of passes for performers and staff potentially rise by 25,500 to 63,000 by 2024.

    Only a handful of performers have been announced so far for the 2014 festival: Dolly Parton, Blondie and Lily Allen are on the bill, and Arcade Fire have been announced as the first headliner. Glastonbury 2014 takes place from 27-29 June.

    I went in as a first year n00b last year with a lengthy list of bands that I wanted to see. I probably caught 1/4 of them, if not less. Just go with the flow and enjoy the festival itself and make sure you people watch!! The Somerset Cider bus has the best cider, and the hot and spicy stuff is to die for when its chilly Shangri-La is supposed to be phenomenal late at night, though it was dead when we went in (during the Stones, so thats probably why).

    In terms of packing, I was in the middle of a backpacking trip so my supplies were limited to begin with. You WILL need a raincoat or some sort, a sweater (nights are cold), wellies or a good pair of shoes that you can destroy over the weekend without getting trenchfoot, and some sort of strong backpack to carry your booze around in. I camped at Tangerine Fields and found it to be a fantastic set up for us international folk since you didn't have to deal with organizing a tent/sleeping bag/sleeping mat.

    Weather is different every year. It was as hot as balls last time I went - and not cold at night.

    Booked a tent today because I really can't be arsed taking my own. Time to pay the remainder of the ticket on Tue.

    LA needs more Massive Attack as it has been to long since their Wiltern performance. Headliners are underwhelming, but the lineup is great.

    I thought that these days special guest automatically meant Daft Punk. I mean, the stage is a pyramid.
