I don't think boycotting Glastonbury will have any effect on the long-term vibe of the festival.

If everybody who gave a toss stopped going, then it would wind up full of people who didn't give a toss and enjoyed shouting "BOLLOCKS!" at top of voices all night long in the camping areas. They could rename it the Pilton Mean Fiddler Festival and be done with it. Anyone who gave a toss about the vibe, meanwhile, would just go to other festivals; to the extent to which the long-term vibe survived, it wouldn't be in Glastonbury.

(I was impressed that the organisers of this year's Glade festival said they were deliberately reducing the number of tickets, since they thought last year's was a smidge too big.)

I'm quite happy to give it at least one last try this year. The Green Fields are still there, and there's a tiny chance it might not even rain as much as the last two years!
