Secret resales

Recommended Posts

Well I was asking about getting a campervan field pass so thought I'd ask at the same time. Looks like I'm going to be volunteering again this year. Unless I magically win tickets :)

I think things are so impossible predict. Last year we all expected a coach resale and there wasn't one, this year people were expecting the resale happen on or around the hour, as in the past, and thought Thursday was unlikely as we'd never had a resale on a Thursday, historically. And happened at 3.45 on a Thursday. I don't feel particularly optimistic about any more tickets becoming available, but I'm not convinced enough to abandon my post and turn off my alerts while there's a slim chance I could get a ticket for someone who's missed out.

Does anyone by any chance have a sreenshot of the page saying no adult tickets when the resale sold out on Thursday? If so can you post it on here please :)

I got that message and I was on the page as soon as they went on sale. Didn't take a screen shot though, I was too busy frantically trying to get it to work. Tried pressing back and clicking the link again a couple of times, didn't work and then before I could try anything else the link was gone. Very frustrating

Pretty much the same here. 

It's always going to be difficult to predict really though; it can or is massively likely to be between mon - friday, in any hour after 9 but probably before 6 . A fucking pain in the arse that we can often vainly try to mitigate by being as on our toes as much as possible. I actually couldn't believe i was so lucky to be bang on the site as the link went live, i also couldn't believe that they went before my transaction was complete. Bad luck is all.

I thought I was hard spine by as there was an hour a day I wasn't able to be on the computer and I was back at 15:50 on Thursday but I think if I was sat at the computer and still wasn't able to get tickets that would have been 10 times worse. Although I haven't given up I don't think this is my year but as my wife had to remind me after Thursday I am going for the Sunday but at this present moment that feels like a very poor second place

It's a definite pisser but i'm coming to terms with it, it's my mate and his missing ticket i'm gutted for.

I'm finding it hard to come to terms with but I'm still 60% possibly going! I have volunteering to do, but don't want to do it on my own, so trying to talk my husband or sister into it as they are allowing one person I know come with me as I've done it before.... My husband initially said flat out know, so I've thrown a strop, and now we are drinking wine he is thinking about it.....wish me luck!

I thought I'd taken a screenshot of that page but it seems I didn't. For the most part it was just the regular page that had confirmation of the names and addresses of the entered reg numbers, only with light blue banners and lines instead of the more usual red. A message saying 'Sorry, we couldn't allocate tickets for the 'ADULT 16+ FULL PRICE' ticket type. Please make a different selection' then appeared above the Buy button at the bottom.

Edit: I've just realised someone posted a picture of the screen earlier. All that's missing off the top are the names and addresses of the people the tickets were for. Strange thing is that I don't remember the bit about water bottles and parking, though I did have other things on my mind at the time!

I like that you have to put some degree of thought into the answer, unlike a lot of competitions you see online. I also noted that if you googled 'inventor flush toilet' the first wiki entry was wrong! 
Hope you have another email account to try again with

Was it Crap or crapper? Know it well :)

Can you buy Sunday tickets if you don't live close? It has always says postcode not viable or something similar when entering my reg details for Sunday tickets. Cheers.

They're just for Central Somerset residents I'm afraid.

I have decided that if it isn't Monday (tomorrow) I think all hope is 99% lost and Thursday was it. Which was so fast I was left thinking whhhaaaastttt the f*** just happened. I was unlucky to get the message (these tickets are unavailable) and thought I had the wrong page and literally just panicked going to all different apps, what's app and here on the forum and Facebook and Twitter thinking why is it my link saying that when they ARE available frantically searching for the right link. When I should have just refreshed :( I can honestly say not signing up for checkpage was the worst mistake and I just want to kick myself but I did sign up on Thursday right after the sale I thought I'm not taking any chances the what's app group didn't alert me till 2 mins after it started so it gave me a minute literally.  anyway I do vauguely remember on Facebook last year and the year before people would post randomly right up until the festival that their were tickets available because see tickets must have had some cancelled ticket right up to the festival because of the insurance people take out incase they can't go. I do think that see tickets on Twitter should tweet their own tweet and say that's it no more tickets whatsoever full stop so don't bother and put everyone out of there misery like last year they tweeted that was it, and stop the representatives replying mixed messages to everyone I have a ticket, I've just been desperately trying to get my sister a ticket she's just the only one in the family who hasn't got one. And it's not going to be the same without her.  Just hoping they sell some more tomorrow :) 

Have a good day x

I had the checker and was downstairs making a cup of tea, by the time I got back to my PC they were gone. I then got the Whats App alerts but it was too late. I am going to keep trying but I fear the worst.

Oh no I bet you wanted to cry waiting all that time and the one time you go get a cup of tea then boom. I hope you get a ticket some how :)

To tell the truth reading here even people who were on the page when it happened didn't get a ticket. Good luck to you as well, fingers crossed. I am off to make a cup of tea now as 9-00am has passed ;)

Feel bad for all the folk still checking every hour it must be so depressing. I would be doing the same if I hadn't have been lucky in the April resale. Think Glastonbury/See need to make an official statement at this point.

Of course ! 

I've not found any problem that cannot be resolved by wine. :-)

And what,  if they said "there is still a chance"  then it would decrease the odds for any folk in here still holding out? 

The key word here is secret :-)

The seven emotional stages of grief are usually understood to be shock or disbelief, denial, bargaining, guilt, anger, depression, and acceptance/hope.

Its intriguing how this process applies to lower level disappointment too... I've been lurking on this thread and the above reflects how people reacted to not getting tickets. Today, acceptance, tomorrow, hope!
