  1. Which festivals will sell out quicker next year?

    I'm not sure how much of an impact Glastonbury not being on will have, you get potentially millions trying for tickets but a large percentage of those (who end up being successful) are bucket list types and wouldn't necessarily go anywhere else other than Glastonbury. No doubt there are plenty of people who go to Glastonbury every year but don't go to any other festivals, but you'd assume plenty go to other festivals anyway. I'm one of the latter and I'm not necessarily looking to replace Glastonbury next year, I'll still do one or two others as I do anyway, I'm not deliberately going to do one extra just because G isn't on. If anything I'll probably go on holiday instead or look at a European festival. So really you're looking at the people who's pretty much just do Glastonbury every year and are looking for their fix so to speak.
  2. Stall finding help

    Bit of a long shot, but I promised my wife I'd ask in here to see if any lovely efesters might be able to help.. There was a stall located to the left of the Glastonbury free press as you look at it, on that row of stalls, probably at least half way down or possible more towards the end of that row, they sold carved cow/bison skulls and other bits of art. Anyway my wife really wanted to get one but it's not exactly the sort of thing that's easy to buy at Glastonbury and carry about with you. I assumed we'd be able to find them easily enough online afterwards but all we can seem to find are sellers in the US or Indonesia, or stuff on Etsy that's twice the price and half the size of what they were selling. As I said I know it's a long shot, but if anybody knows of the stall or the seller then I'd be eternally grateful! P.S. Missing Glasotnbury like nothing else.

    It's so good it's making me cry

    Although it would make more sense to get a Bestival ticket, it would take forever to organise (persuade) my mates to do it, so in my semi drunken state I've just bought over priced Brixton tickets. Nothing compares to seeing one of your favourite acts at Glastonbury, but this will go some way to expunging that ginger abomination from my memory.

    Ok, after watching Ed Sheeran over Justice (and Justice were my top pick for the whole festival, peer pressure don't get me started) I've just about managed to allow myself to watch their set back. FUCK. I'm a 35 year old man and I'd have to say this my life's biggest regret so far. You lucky c**ts. Edit: I think I'm going to have to buy a Bestival ticket to restore my equilibrium.
  6. Who should reform?

    The Crüe
  7. 2019 Headliners

    I think Foals are working towards it and are obviously headliners already for any other festival but Glastonbury. After subbing last year it's not going to happen without another album though and it would obviously have to be a good one at that.
  8. Lack of facilities and end of Gate D hell

    The original poster seems to moaning about the lack of refreshments at the end of said queue though, not the actual queue. I can only assume they are moaning about that because they didn't have their own, which would have been rather foolish considering we had fair warning the queues would be very long and it would be very hot that day. FWIW I don't think it's that reasonable to complain about the queue itself either though. We were all given fair warning that they would be big, and all given the choice to be in the big queues or arrive later.
  9. 2019 Headliners

    On one had it was suggested the Other headliners were weak this year compared to the past few years, but when I think about it you had acts like the Killers and Katy Perry playing low down slots on other stages, so there was plenty of talent to beef it up they had wanted. To me it looks like they tried to give certain acts the platform to headline rather than just playing lower down the Pyramid, Alt-J being a good example and Emile Sande in the sub role another. The difficulty is the crowds for some of these acts were embarrassingly small, I walked past Alt-J's and it was tiny, watching their highlights back they deliberately avoided showing the crowd even once. Although I like Wolf Alice putting them as Other headliners would probably have a similar result, so it will be interesting to see if they stick with this strategy again in 2019, or do back to the bigger acts headlining again.
  10. Overheard funnies

    We were by a group of scousers at Liam, they were lovely blokes and were sharing out their drugs and alcohol to everyone around. I politely refused the drugs as they still had them stored in a Kinder egg.
  11. 2019 Headliners

    I think 50th is 2020, so 2019 likely to be the exact opposite of going all out.
  12. Lack of facilities and end of Gate D hell

    It's almost like they didn't warn people that the queues might be considerably longer this year and that the weather people failed to warn us it would be 30 degrees+ that day, I mean if you'd know you would've brought your own refreshments surely?
  13. V Festival banning stage times?

    Arrange for a telegram to be delivered to your tent confirming the set times?
  14. V Festival banning stage times?

    I 100% agree, compared to Glastonbury it's abysmal value, but in their defence they have to pay a lot more for acts than Glastonbury do, I'm sure Jay-z wasn't cheap
  15. V Festival banning stage times?

    Further to my above post, I just checked the price for a weekend ticket and no suprise it's under £200 (£189). I'm sure they're desperate to keep the price under the £200 mark hence charging for lanyards etc.
