    Resale Club 2019

    I went into the coach resale only focusing on the Thursday tickets, because I knew the Wednesday is way more popular. Sure, I'd love to get to Glasto on Wednesday. But figured that at this later stage, I'd rather just get a ticket in the way that has the most chance of being successful, so I picked Thursday. Luckily for me, it worked out.

    I think the coach resale is probably the hardest of all the sales. You start with a strictly limited number of tickets across two days and umpteen cities, with no idea how many tickets are allocated to what configuration, so you’re completely in the dark about which combination might win. By the time you realise your chosen one won’t, somebody else has already taken a punt on your second choice. I think if it came down to the resales for me, I’d start with a Thursday departure to stand the best chance. Not ideal, but then neither is having to be in the resale to begin with.
  10. Walking boots, good socks (double layer ideally), shorts, thin t-shirt on you then a hoodie and something wind/showerproof will see you through most everything without needing to take things on/off too often. Add a poncho if there's going to be horrid stuff - worth getting a half decent one beforehand though so it's not a single-use waste - they're nice things to have hidden in the bottom of your bag for anything that might end up with some outdoors and it will get some rough treatment, a torn poncho is useless. As said it can be shockingly single figures cold at night so something warm for the evening too if you're not moving around so much. Obvs forecast dependent but best be prepared and be able to leave it at the tent. Doesn't need to be fancy a wooly jumper under a windproof is excellent. If there's any point, other than decent boots, that I'd spend more money it's the wind/showerproof. Plasticy non breathable ones are rough a.f. while the nice ones are silky and breathe very well so you end up faffing around less.
  11. This will be my 8th Glastonbury and beyond the first 2 years where I had paid work at the festival it has always been a bone of contention in our house. My wife is the polar opposite of me and could not think of anything worse than attending Glasto every year, but appreciates and recognises how important it is for me and what I gain from going as a release from the outside world. When I didn't have to pay to go and actually came back with money in my pocket which could contribute to a family holiday later in the summer it was a much easier sell, however in the years since I have volunteered on both recycling crew and wristbanding, as well as attending as a regular punter twice (3rd time this year) it has become a bigger challenge. In her eyes it is a week of A/L and substantial money out of the bank which isn't being spent on the family which I really do appreciate, especially when considering that she is not a festival person at all so doesn't "get it", no matter how much I bang on about it each year. If i thought that me attending would have serious repercussions on our relationship or if it meant that a main family holiday wouldn't happen as a result, then of course I would sacrifice my week of escape. However I am blessed that, despite her protests, she begrudgingly accepts that if I find a way to go each year then I will go. As long as we get a decent summer holiday and my remaining 4 weeks of leave are used to spend time with the family then the balance is just about right. I do however try and make up for it throughout the year and go the extra mile to make sure she also has the same escape time that I have. Maybe not in the same hedonistic way, but certainly with a spa weekend or two which is much more her thing! Ultimately it is different for everyone depending on finances, childcare, age of the kids, and all manner of other personal circumstances. Glastonbury, as incredible as it is, is not worth losing the most important thing in life which is family. There will be other opportunities to go and always focus on that.

    I got so lucky. I was stuck in the city so i went to Costa. Within two minutes i had the only one ticket we needed to get. I went straight for the Thursday though and i think that made a difference. That was 4G on my phone. Im happy to help come Sunday.
  13. The thrill of arrival Let's dance you motherfuckers The pain of leaving
  14. Booo loved this place, spent many a time talking to randoms here ..... this is so sad
  15. I'm in, you don't know how happy I am 😄
  16. Yesterday
  17. By that definition, every fan of a big team is a glory hunter.
  18. Another wild suggestion here... Bruce Springsteen? Without The E Street Band. He just announced a new solo album for June.
  19. It is not to benefit festival goers who will not have 5g phones, it is to test this dangerous level of electromagnetic radiation on festival goers physical health in a controlled area. The ICNIRP 'guidelines' for safety that UK GOV refers to are from 1996. https://www.emfscientist.org/ 5G is untested technology.
  20. I really want Muskets again, they're a severely underrated band.
  21. Deffo mate. Bit easier to do at Kendal with it not being as big 😄
  22. Been saving a tenner every Friday since Glasto 2017 and I’ve got 910 quid in my Glasto 19 tin.
  23. Wow, can't imagine ever wanting to be in the type of relationship that I would tell my husband or him give me an ultimatum about what either of us can or can't do. If my partner/husband wants to go and spend time with his pals then he has my blessing assuming that its not all the time to the detriment of our relationship. It sounds quite toxic and I would be talking about the underlying problems. Like seriously, you're not allowed any free time? Sorry but if my husband told me I couldn't go to Glastonbury knowing my love for the place some serious conversations would be happening but at the end of it I would still be going. (This is all on the assumption that there aren't bigger problems at home that need to be dealt with) However I am lucky in the fact that we met at Glastonbury so its a given that we both go and we both love it.
  24. Glastonbury Haiku: Describe the place in three lines?! Good luck with that mate.
  25. Caravan in East Nice and quiet for sleeping But the Hill of Death
  26. Do we love Glasto? Do we just love getting pissed? It is food for thought.
