  2. One month on...

    Exactly.....5 days inside the fence is a respite from the realities of life outside.

    Quite....but the notion of 6 people buying the absolute maximum they could to 'sell on' suggests a degree of profiteering in mind. Unless that is they have 54 'mates' lined up that they know all want to schlep down from the Midlands for one evening.

    I think it's the the suggestion of buying the maximum they could to sell on to their mates - assumedly for a profit.....

    Pretty sure it wouldn't be allowed. I'd be well up for a day meet though....dogs and kids....nice walk, few photos around the site...a beer in the pub down the road....that sort of thing.

    I miss it like heck. Can't remember a year it's taken so long to get over it. Tearing up just scribbling this.....wtf?

    What kind of 'friend' sells you a gig ticket at a markup to face value? I'm assuming that's the case here else why bother to get so many? Utter knobheads. Hopefully they went home empty handed - except that leaves their 'friends' ignorant of what dicks they are.

    Generally yes....the railway track is usually walkable all the way but you may find some exits off to stone circle, avalon or block 9 fenced off if there are sheep/cows grazing....pot luck on the day really.
  9. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    quite right....'complimentary' doesn't necessarily mean direct from GFL.
  10. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    Seems the answer to the original question is simply 'Yes'. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-40821148

    There didn't appear to be any security left that would prevent a wander round now but the best person to confirm as such is probably @deebeedoobee who lives in Pilton. Usual countryside codes apply obviously...try to stay on pathways, don't disturb any livestock, close any gates behind you etc etc.

    Bloody hell Frosty! Just when I felt like I was starting to get over it

    I drove past the site on Saturday....there was a guy stood at what is Red Gate with a rucksack and his thumb out so I stopped and gave him a lift to Glastonbury town. He said he'd been on site since June 2nd and had just finished the clean-up, and was now looking forward to getting back home to West Wales, where (somewhat romantically) my wife later surmised that he'd be welcomed open-armed and fed a 'big roast' by his Mum. For about 20 mins we talked about the festival, how many we'd done, what had changed etc, and that this year was truly one of the best, if not the best. I passed the site again on the way back, looked wistfully across the hedge at the Pyramid with her hat off now, and thought yeah, it was the best. It's been a month and things have moved on as life does, but it only takes a little thing like that to bring it all back. Black, if you're reading this, it was good to meet you. I hope you got back home ok, and that (for my wife) your Mum gave you a hug and cooked you a 'big roast'. Thanks for the chat and for all the hard work you put in at the farm. Roll on 2019 everybody

    No...that was for Laura Plane. http://www.plymouthherald.co.uk/now-i-can-smile-again-laura-plane-s-husband-on-foo-fighters-glastonbury-tribute/story-30408521-detail/story.html I think it's wonderful and equally sad that the festival is seen as such a special place to so many people in such circumstances. Long may it be that way.
