Hi! I'm Adam. Long time lurker, only started posting recently. Got a coach ticket in the resale and use this site a lot for stories and things to look out for. It's my second glastonbury, hopefully gonna come to the efest meet up on the Wednesday.

I admit I am hoping to get some "secret"  resale tickets for friends and that did prompt me to start posting, i do feel slightly more engaged with the forums having done so though. Everyone seems decent here, glad I finally took the plunge.

I'm Nicola, also a longtime lurker. Took the plunge and did my first post yesterday. Reading all the threads has made me stupidly excited for June! 

this will be my 8th Glasto, I got through in the main sale.

Hi, I am Magali, the very french person that wrote "solding" instead of "selling".

I am not even a long time lurker, I was just desperate to get tickets after I resold my  wednesday coach tickets (stupidly, I now realize I should have come earlier and ask advice haha) as I had an exam on the Thursday.

Not very accustomed with festival as I only ever did three, and they were day only ones. Hopefully Glastonbury will be my first one (and what first one it could be!!!) Nice to meet you all.

- also what does the +(different number depending on the member) means under the avatar? I am quite curious hehe

I'll join this wee list of long time readers but recent posters.... I'm 33, from North Yorkshire and this'll be my first Glastonbury. Been to other smaller festivals and cant wait...

Will definitely come meet some of you guys at the eFest meet up.... your advice so far on here has been invaluable

Hi I am Andrew, I have been a lurker for three years now.

This will be my third glastonbury, I use this place to keep up to date on lineup and rumours - which I then use among my festival-going friends to pretend I am somehow in the know.

Have wasted far too many hours on here. Work productivity declines progressively from around January each year through till Tuesday night before we set off for Somerset...

After lurking for a number of years, finally got round to posting a few days ago.  Been every year since 2007, firstly inside the fence but more recently in the trailer tent then the motor home (I'm old, you see) Not a stranger to Internet forums (have moderated one or two in the past) and have really not posted because the pace here is so quick that most of the things I've wanted to say have already been said by the time I've got onto the thread.  Don't think there's much broken here - this is as friendly a forum as it gets, in my experience.

I'm the one on the left, btw.

Sadly not.  I have been seasick though, on occasion.

HAHAHHA.  I did the same thing and now my friends call me the Glastonbury Oracle, but I had to give credit where credit is due and simply explain that I spend too much time on eFests!  Neil is the oracle!

Hi, I joined this forum a few weeks ago after paying the final installment for my ticket. This will be my first Glastonbury and I have a lot of questions so I figured this forum would be a mine of useful information and so far it has not disappointed!

I only joined this year as my friend who somehow always had mysterious Glastonbury information before anyone else admitted that he got it all from here. Have since whiled away far too many hours on the forum!

@sloseph I'd actually always avoided Glastonbury, I always liked the look of it but people would go to Glasto and come back "different". Reading + Leeds were no longer good enough for them and everything else couldn't match it in terms of greatness. Being from Oxford and having Reading festival just up the road it was like a yearly ritual for me and I didn't like the idea of it not being good enough anymore. I finally gave in and went last year and not only did it exceed expectations but it also turns out the people who got all elitist about it are just aresholes. 

So after last year I wasn't sure I'd be going again, it's a hard graft and I wasn't sure i could hack it but after half heartedly trying in the general sale and not getting tickets it definitely started eating at me. I'm on here several times a day now and I couldn't not give it my all in the resale to get a ticket. 

I think i'm just going to have to accept that this is my life now. Sorry boss....

I have spent far too many hours lurking on this forum, with only a couple of posts last year. So I resolved to at least double my post count this time around...

This year will be my second, had an incredible time last year.
