Wow, surprised to learn that Glasto is taking 2012 off -- not enough port-a-pottys thanks to the Olympics.
^^nah, Glastonbury usually takes every fifth or sixth year off. They didn't hold it in '06, '01, '96, etc. With any other fest I might get concerned that it was in danger of not coming back, but with Glasto, it's just business as usual.
