  1. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Been a little quiet around here, without Glastonbury I have no reason to pop my head in. I hope you're all well, enjoying the start of 2018 and have lots of fun things planned during the fellow year!
  2. What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    We're saving the holidays to go on a road trip / get married in the states and throw a big old party in Sheffield. It's the most expensive holiday we've ever gone on, usually we're budget hunters who like camping, hostels, and basics. But we've booked a 19-night trip across the USA, hired a Ford Mustang and thought 'Sod it!" We're off to Arizona (Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, outdoor wedding ceremony / elopement in Lake Powell) into Utah for Zion, Bryce Canyon, Vegas, Death Valley, Yosemite, San Fran, drive down the Big Sur / HighWay 1, ending in LA and a cheeky trip to Disneyland... Some friends are also getting married Glastonbury weekend this year, so it's worked out well!

  4. Glasto 2017 from the eyes of a first timer

    Great read thank you for sharing!!
  5. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Hello strangers! I've avoided the forum post-Glastonbury after I attempted to settle back into normal life. I did get a bit braver this year and came along briefly to the eFests meet. Didn't make anything else - lost track of time! Got washed out on Snowdon at the weekend, never climbed it before, I assure you, the view I got wasn't worth the walk! Rain was so bad that the campsite flooded and we left because it just wasn't very nice, especially given that the flood started to come into the tent!
  6. One month on...

    This year I've suffered serious post-Glasto blues. I've avoided all things festival related - and haven't really spoken much about it. I think usually - there's something that wasn't overly great about the festival. Last years festival it was the traffic and mud. This year there was nothing to moan about, everything was perfect. Lovely weather, amazing bands (I love both Radiohead and Foo Fighters) company was great, everyone I spoke to was in high spirits. Can't believe the next one isn't till 2019! I am liking that I'm not worried about getting tickets. I've even avoided the forum so much that the design is different compared to the last time I was here!! I think this year made everyone forget their normal world outside the fence even more, relaxed into the festival and feel happy. I've only been to 6 previous festivals, so wouldn't call myself a hardcore Glastonbury goer but this was my favourite out of them all! It's worked out well. Getting married next year so could do with saving money. Some close friends are getting wed on what would've been, Glastonbury weekend. Almost like fate set that up for us!

  10. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Hi all, Sorry I miss the Thursday meet and equally that I disappeared so quickly from the eFests meet. I did not feel so good Wednesday afternoon and needed to go lie down and eat. (I also found a fire engine with its hoses on to go through. It was nice) I'm suffering from major Glasto blues. But sort of happy that October isn't met with ticket stress. @H.M.V and @fatyeti24 was great to say hello briefly on the Wednesday (and others who I have forgotten, too much sun and possibly a little bit too much drink before the meet wasn't my wisest decision of the festival)
  11. NFR NFC 2017 - The friendly thread for lovely people

    Sorry didn't make the meet and I popped by the efests one briefly. Wasn't feeling great Wednesday, the walk and the queue in the heat didn't do any of our campsite any favours, so wondered off early to grab some food and weirdly, run through a fire engine hose! Next time - I'll gain more confidence and say hello to more people and say for longer!
  12. Dick move of your festival......

    During Radiohead two things: 1) Someone pissed on my leg, which prompted me to turn around to tell them off etc. A girl told me to 'chill out' I said would you like me to piss on your leg? I think my anger terrified her, and the whole group moved. 2) A couple completely off their faces resulted in her sitting on the floor for most of the set. I didn't notice until I moved and stood on her bare foot / leg. I asked her if she was OK - did she need to get out etc. Her fella told me to fuck off and if I stand on her again he will have words with security.
  13. Did you leave a trace?

    Everything made it back aside from a broken tent, which was packed away into its bag and handed in to a donation point! If I had the energy yesterday I would've taken some of the tents home but I'm barely moving today!
