Music “helps cut crime” sez a Baroness. The reason why there is not much crime at Glasto is surely nothing to do with the enormous fence that keeps the crims out. I am suspicious of the soothing powers of music – trudging across the vast expanse of the Other Stage during a mid-afternoon Elbow performance I experience a numbing effect perhaps but not a peaceful and friendly one. There’s also the little matter of the ENORMOUS number of real actual crimes that take place in Glastonbury, mostly to do with drugs and breaching of the peace: I am quite certain that the Baroness would have considered raucous Sunday night singalongs of Big And Rich absolutely criminal if they’d taken place outside her house. (Quite right too.)
