  1. Fluffy Rock Cafe

    Ooh , whereabouts? *wants information cannot possibly use for 700 or so days
  2. The Jacksons

    I thought The Jacksons were brilliant (I'm not a huge fan) but the sound at West Holts was appalling for them. Was on left side between LOUD stall & soundstage - kept moving around as people yakking was actually drowning out the sound. Went right to the back of the field on the left (near Ghandis Flip Flop) for the last number and sound was better there - v. odd Also went to west holts on Sunday to see Shaggy & sound was shockingly bad - tried a number of different areas to little avail. Gave up, left and went to a ( non-existent, as it turned out) gig in the Bimble inn instead - not a happy bunny.
  3. Fluffy Rock Cafe

    Fluffy Rock used to sell 2 fried eggs in a bap for about £ 2.50. A staple of my festival. I'm afraid I boycotted The Open Arms out of sheer spite.
  4. New Experiences

    Went to The Underground Piano Bar for the first time ever on Saturday night. Very impressive structure, not so sure about the entertainment. Saw a gazillion seagulls feasting on William's Green at 5 in the morning (*I* blame the TV coverage for making the festival so popular with them - I don't remember seagulls in the 1990s). Washed my hair at Glastonbury Festival for the first time ever, been going since 1994. It was Monday morning, my hair had gone Wurzel Gummidge like, & I was supposed to meet a civilian friend in Bristol for lunch. She cancelled as I got on the bus - sigh Went up to the Glastonbury sign for the first time ever - it's patchwork know. Finally got to see Prof Alice Roberts in the Crow's nest. 3 years ago....I forgot. 2 years ago, she clashed with Patti Smith. Last year I left the Pyramid Stage an hour b4 her 3 pm talk, slogged 3/4 of an hour on muddy slow-moving tracks to the Crow's Nest, only to find she'd finished precisely as I arrived. Her talk had been put back an hour - arrrgh. Had no smoke but passive smoke - sob.
  5. Friendly reminder - USE THE LOCK UPS

    Just a tip for those who are leaving stuff in the lockups for the duration of the festival. As well as taking a photo, put a reminder on your phone to pick up on the last day. As I'm now coming from Ireland, arriving Bristol airport and finding passport, flight ticket etc have been left behind would be a bit of a nightmare. They do close up around midday (or earlier? - don't risk it) on the Monday.
  6. Hot weather advice

    Hot weather advice for the women / men who like jewellery. Don't wear anything made of cheap metal with sunscreen - you and your clothing will be rendered rust orange. White clothing and sunscreen is generally a bad mix. And it doesn't come off clothing in the wash - you may end up doing weird alchemy experiments with lemon juice and sunshine before slinging them in the washing machine. I was neck-rusted at last year's festival when using a standard Boots moisturiser with SPF 15 - it wasn't even sunny!!
  7. Hot weather advice

    I got in - it was the 15 mins standing in the sun in the crush outside that nearly killed me. I watched a LOT of bands in the John Peel that day...
  8. Hot weather advice

    When planning travel in the Far East, pharmacy recommended I take a dehydration solution (dioralyte or Boots stuff) and take one at least every 2 days, to make up for sweating. Might help for those whose dehydration is eh "self-inflicted" too. And into my bag they go.
  9. Hot weather advice

    Can get similar spray bottles in Superdrug - best quid (or so) you'lll ever spend.
  10. The Unsuccessful

  11. The Unsuccessful

    Hi guys. After a sleepless night imagining my bank might block the transaction if successful (I don't use card much and it's happened before), I rang Barclays this morning on their unblock my card line and got them to put a *large transaction marker* on my account for tomorrow only, to prevent that happening. Might be worthwhile to do with your banks too. Fingers crossed and good luck to all the Unsuccessful tomorrow!! wet wipes.
  12. Coach Resale

    Just be careful about one thing guys. In the main coach sale in October, I had chosen Wednesday and was hammering away on refresh and getting holding page. Relaunched ticket sale page and it came up that Wednesday had sold out. Meanwhile my original browser continued to tell me that it was refreshing the Wednesday page ad infinitum for ages and ages after it had sold out. Good luck to all. Wetwipes the Unsuccessful.
  13. Worthy View, Tipis & CV Fields Sale

    Anyone mistakenly bought an extra onsite campervan ticket (East or West), apart from the 3 now sorted for Neil/efestivals? And planning to cancel with seetickets? Please PM me to see if a transfer through seeticketss can be effected for @wingwangu (can't be online at the moment). His girlfriend had no luck this morning for campervan tickets and due to some issues, will not go to Glastonbury if her campervan can't come too. Thanks a million.
  14. The Unsuccessful

    Just adding a post to the unsuccessful thread. Saw holding page without countdown for both coach sale and main sale and never got any further. I've been to every festival there's been since 1994, so my luck was bound to run out at some stage, and unfortunately, the "golden-fingered" one of my current group wasn't able to try on Sunday. Hasn't really sunk in yet...
  15. Secret resales

    Just a rejig of some advice along with a summary of last year's resale I already posted on p.117 of this thread. This year the last refund cancellation date is Friday 6th May, so the most likely resale time will be Mon 9th - Friday 13th (eek!) or Monday 16th May. Just a general summing up of last year's secret resale: The last date for refund cancellations was Friday 8th May 2015. The secret resale was expected to happen in the following week 11- 15th (around lunch time, and "on the hour" for reasons I'm not sure of). However, the resale was on Monday 18th at 3 pm for 14 mins. Earlier on that day, folk on this thread who were monitoring the ticketsite page changes said there were changes in the code but no visible change (you can see it all kicking off around page 60 of this thread). I got a ticket for a mate at 15.08 just by following this thread, and noting a lot of sudden activity i.e, there were 3 more thread pages than there had been 5 minutes earlier and I saw someone had posted “Yessssss!” BUT what had never occurred to me, is that @GlastoFest would tweet that the tix had gone onsale - people say it was about 1 minute after the site had gone live. Apparently @emilyeavis tweeted 3 minutes after. So not so secret after all. http://www.efestivals.co.uk/forums/gallery/image/5197-glasto-2015-secret-resale-tweet/ Nothing came up on Glastonbury Festivals facebook page. There was only one "secret resale" and that was it. They were all general admission tickets (not coach) afaik. No holding page, straight in. So, I would strongly recommend that this week people monitor this forum/thread for activity. If you can, monitor page changes and/or join siblin's group. Also follow @GlastoFest and @emilyeavis on Twitter. If you have some kind of reliable (lets you know within 1 minute) push notifications for Twitter, set them up. Make sure you have the reg numbers and post codes and debit card details to hand at all times, you've got enough money in your account, and keep checking [particularly on the hour, particularly at lunchtime?] glastonbury.seetickets.com or http://glastonbury.seetickets.com/content/extras Just a note, if you are thinking of picking up a ticket for a mate who missed out in the resales, be sure to check they still want to go! Last year there was a thread on here about someone who, in the heat of the secret resale moment, bought two non-refundable tickets for mates who had been trying in the official resales, only to discover they had booked flights and tickets for some international festival instead - don't know how that panned out in the end but I suspect not well..... Good luck to all who are depending on the secret resales!!!
