The Kids are Alright.

Much has been made by the NME recently about Glastonbury's lack of atmosphere, and how the festival was populated by a greater quanitity of your over 35's than usual. Apparently, the Chelsea-Tracktor driving massive made the festival not as cool for the kids whilst being fucked off their faces on magic mushrooms and such. What a tragic shame. Michael Eavis has chimed in today with his response, basically claiming that issuing a vast bulk of the tickets online was the problem, and that more will be done next year to get the kids in.

Hmmm. So online sales have damaged the festival? And this has nothing to do with the rigmorole in obtaining a pass to buy tickets, and then spending ages waiting for the site to load to purchase? Or even the exorbetent price the festival now charges - which puts the festival out of the reach of many 16-20 year olds? Mr Eavis should really be spending time looking at precisely WHO he wants to attend, and then pricing accordingly.

Rant over.
