  1. Secret Garden Party 2017 Alcohol

    Most of the music ended around midnight last year I think (bit hazy) although there may have been 1 bit where something went on a bit later
  2. Charli XCX - one of us

    We went to get something to eat by the Other Stage as she was on and personally I thought she was absolutely horrendous and the worst thing I heard all weekend. I'm clearly not down with the kids and it's very much an each to their own thing
  3. Your (potentially) Contraversial Changes to Glasto

    We nearly got crushed trying to leave the front of the Pyramid after the XX. It really was a disaster waiting to happen. Security were doing nothing. Understandably a LOT of Radiohead fans trying to get in but something should have been done to give people a chance to get out first between headliners. Eventually after us shouting about how dangerous it was they asked people to let us out but something should have been in place to stop that happening with so many people in the area. Maybe a one way system between acts or something.
  4. Your (potentially) Contraversial Changes to Glasto

    No way to the over 21's my brother takes his kids and they absolutely love it as well as kids I know plenty of teenagers who love it. The most ridiculous idea ever. Music is for all ages. I do however totally agree with reducing the ticket numbers back to what they were before they last increased the numbers. While extra areas have been put in it's just not enough to handle the extra numbers. A lot of my mates have stopped going for this reason
  5. See Coaches - a bit of a shambles...

    We were booked on the 8.30 coach to Manchester and Taunton lot went before us. TBH though I was expecting the usual shambles of not checking any tickets and just getting on whichever coach came next. I really don't know why they even bother allocating a return time. What was worse this year was the toiled leaking piss all over the boot on the way there. Thankfully I have everything packed in plastic bags but that was a pretty grim start to the festival. Just had to get on with it and have the best time ever
  6. So... Who else is on their last day of work clock watching

    Last working day for me. Off to New York tomorrow, back on Tuesday then Glasto on Wednesday and haven't packed for either!!
  7. See Coach times up?

    On Coach 238 from Manchester at 1pm on the Wednesday. Hoping it's a bit quicker than last year's 10 hours although we did have an absolute legend of a bus driver which made it bearable. We have mates taking our tent down this year at least so all good. A bit gutted to be missing a big chunk of Wednesday again but grateful to have a golden ticket at the same time
  8. Potentially emotional moments

    This in itself just brought a tear to my eye, that she was due to be with you at Glastonbury. So sorry for your loss ...Red Carpet - Alright is one of the tunes I want played at my funeral and I was in tears the other week hearing it played by an orchestra the other week at Cream Classical. I'll probably be in the Spaceport on Thursday as well so if it gets played and you see someone else blubbing it will most probably be me..
  9. Elrow?

    I'm sick to the back teeth of Elrow now tbh
  10. Battles of the bogs

    My first Glasto was in 2005 so a good introduction to how the weather can affect a festival. Luckily we were camped up in Dragon Field so didn't get so much as a drop of rain in the tent. Had such a good time that I returned in 2007...that for me was my worst festival in terms of weather with the relentless rain although one of my favourites all round. I was a wuss and didn't return though in 2008 after attending a couple of other festivals that year with similar conditions. Last year our coach broke down on the way from Manchester and by the time we got there it was about 10pm on the Wednesday. Despite me saying to the Glasto virgins in our group to only take what they could carry this most definitely didnt happen (nobody can prepare you though). I had to trek from Gate A to South Park and back 3 times in the very sticky mud which resulted in a rather painful groin strain which then made the rest of the festival a bit tricky to get around in. Despite the mud though 2007 was hands down the worst for me in terms of the conditions.
  11. The Unsuccessful

    I was lucky and got my coach ticket on Thursday but had a good few people trying for 6 this morning and no luck whatsoever. I've got tickets before for people in the resale and sneaky resales so will be trying then for this same 6 and will pitch in for Efestivellers too. Keep the faith!!!!!
  12. See Coach times up?

    10am departure from Manchester for us. Not as early as I would have liked but hopefully get a better sleep than we would have done if it had been mega early. Never arrived that late before. Hopefully the rest of our group will be arriving earlier to get us a good spot. Regardless we are going to Glasto and thats the main thing
  13. Swedish Log Candles

    i defo would like a couple of these to pick up on the Wednesday
