Did anyone else see this at the weekend?

Whoever that was is obviously trying to draw attention to the issue of flags at the festival. Does anyone else think that the flags at Glastonbury just get in the way and are idiotic?

So ITT: discussion of flags and praise for the Glastonbury troll
Hahahahahahahahahah hahahaha har har har

Yeah flags are pretty annoying at festivals. But you can't really hate on stuff like that at Glastonbury.

When I went to Isle of Wight festival people were walking round all day and all night shouting 'Alan'. I'd trade flags for that anyday.

At Download, on the way back to the tents every year people shout "Buttscratcher". A Family Guy reference, no idea how it came about but it's a nice nostalgic experience.

The flags at Glastonbury can get annoying but sometimes they are quite amusing and also help friends/family find one another

That's not just Download, that's pretty much all big music festivals I've heard it too.

You are never going to believe this in a million years but...


At Reading 2008, as mad as it sounds. A friend of mine started the buttscratcher thing.
Yeah, now you're gonna die wearing that stupid little hat. How does it feel?

They banned flags in the arena at Download this year, and I think it was a good idea, it's just annoying being behind someone with like 5 flags and not being able to see shit.

I like the retarded shit that goes on at festivals (chants and flags and mudfights whatever), it's just a bit of fun, no need to take it seriously.

No, that episode came out in 2007. Obviously Family Guy did it first. But Reading 2008 was it's genesis as an annoying festival meme.

I always preferred the 'Bollocks' chant which seemed to roll over the entire campsite... then buttscratcher killed it

There are so many variants of buttscratcher now. Margaret Thatcher was a popular one. And child snatcher.
Flags are fine though. If you want to see a band that much, get down the front.
Saw a guy in 2008 stood on his mates shoulders, balancing with a scottish flag on a pole...which snapped at one point and he hit the deck face first.

And started it simultaneously at Leeds too I assume?


Buttscratcher is one of the most annoying things I know. It's just "oh you've seen Family Guy, well done". Seriously not at all funny.

But yeah flags are banned at Leeds Fest too. Can't say I'm that disappointed, I can see why they'd be annoying for a lot of people.
#31
I don't know why someone would want to carry a huge ass flag into the crowd. You're probably gonna get some drunk off his tits on e's trying to shove it up his ass.

Giant flags: because it's absolutley essential that festival-goers, TV audiences and famous musicians know where you're from/what team you support/what your favourite colour is/how much you love pirates.

Some new ones that I'd never heard before came out at Leeds last year, including velociraptor and the very ingenius 'fag-badger' from an extremely pissed, tall, fat guy during Blink 182.

Yeah, you're right, I don't believe you.


If I saw this guy at Glastonbury and I was there I probably would have twatted him or something for using memes outside the internet, not because 4chan is a super-cool secret place but because it's cringey as fuck.

But shouting buttscatcher is fine?

I'm going to go to Leeds this year, and I AM going to climb on stage when Muse are playing. I will hand M Bellz a picture of his wife and shout BUTTSCRATCHAHH
#36
I wouldn't want to pay something like £150 for a ticket for one of these big festivals to be stood behind some goon with a fat ass flag in the way. There are tens of thousands of people behind you and they want to see too.
#37
They're just annoying when they get in the shot, considering that if a band I like is playing Glastonbury I have to scour Youtube for grainy vids the next day.
