Wow! I mean WOW! If that's true that's fantastic, together with old chums too. If this news was tomorrow I would have thought April Fool.

I'm going. Any music festival you'll find The Chemical Brothers and Mike Oldfield playing. You'll find me.

Not cheap, but looks like £195 covers the whole 5 day festival - which isn't bad - a lot for your money. Never been to Glastonbury so as good a time as any.

I'll try for the re-sale, and if I get them he better show!

Just googled - http://www.glastowatch.co.uk/ - and Mike Oldfield's UP there!

So .....must be true.




I think it's for REAL!

I'm so going. This might be my last chance to see the creator himself  :)  Luckily I saved up some money. Do you think I can still buy some tickets?

HR - you'd definately get a ticket on ebay, around a week or so before the festival - but you'd be paying around £600 each!

Definitely not listed on the line-up side.

Very much doubt it.

If this is a joke it's definitely a very sick joke. I really hope it's not a joke!  What will MO be playing then? TB? some of his earlier works? or maybe Incantations for the upcoming reissue? Or will it be the telecaster project? although I'd doubt the telecaster project. Some information on that whatsoever?

£195 is nothing to pay for the experience of a life time. Even if Mike wasn't playing its still well worth it for five days of the greatest festival on earth. Heck I'd pay £195 just to have the chance of seeing Bono put his back out again   ;)
