  1. I've been reading this forum and other social media platforms about this mornings sale and thought I'd jot a few of my thoughts that have gone on through the day as I eventually got on with life and went off for a family meal this afternoon to celebrate a birthday. Context, I was trying to get tickets for my thirteenth Glastonbury in a row, and we had 8 people from my hometown trying to get tickets, plus I had another 20 or so mates (some of whom I usually camp with) dotted around the UK trying as well. One group of six got sorted, the rest of us missed out, this is the 2nd time I've

  2. 4 groups in the Camp Ralph massive. I was in group 1. 09:12 - group 4 done 09:20 - group 3 done 09:25 - group 2 done 09:27 - group 1 done But hang on.... 09:29 - message to keep trying for group 1, Ben never got to confirmation page. 09:37 - sold out. 10:00 - No confirmation email, money not gone from Ben's account. Shit. Despair. 10:55 - new message from Ben. "Hold the fucking phone!". He's got a confirmation email. I'm going to Glastonbury! 34 Camp Ralph tickets bought over the 2 sales. We're all going! Just 2 to get in the resale for

  3. Personally im happy for people getting their first bite of the glasto Cherry. Those who have been 10+ times have been very lucky to have all those memories.. only fair to share the good times.

  4. Ladies, gentlemen, lurkers, Allow me to present, for your listening and learning pleasure, a special early bird post-fallow year edition of my annual Spotify playlist: Glastonbury 2019! It features all the acts that are confirmed to be playing (when we have some), or likely to be (rated as TBC or 'Strong Rumour' on the lineup page); and for each, the 5 (or 3) songs they've been playing live the most (based on Setlist.fm and additional Googling). Hopefully gives the best taster of what they'll play at the festival. Any comments or suggestions for improvement always welcome. Updates as

  5. Get a bit of mud on the go for this year and polarising acts in headline slots, that'll sort out the wheat from the chaff next time.

  6. Yep Mumfords are playing. You pricks with tickets are getting Mumfords & Sons/Kings of Leon/Coldplay and you're going to be fucking grateful for it.

  9. Absofuckinglutely. Them 3 boxes could have read; 1) We will donate your (living) mothers body to medical science before her death. 2) The real ticket price is actually 3 grand each. Still in? 3) You will have a permanent heavy cold for the next decade. Them boxes were merely boxes to be ticked regardless of whatever they said, I don’t have a clue what they said, and still don’t, they were just obstacles in the way, to be ticked as quickly as humanely possible before clicking that magic payment button!!

  11. I didn’t get a ticket either. Not a year will go by when I don’t want to go, I’ll try my best every year to go and I’ll exhaust all the avenues that are available until they’re all gone. I know that if I really really want to go there are options that may or may not be viable (volunteering/paying through the nose/jumping over the fence) it just depends how far I’m willing to go to get a ticket. But what I also know is that for 30 minutes on the first Sunday in October I’m competing with millions of people for a finite amount of tickets. Not everyone can go, nobody deserves to go more than

  14. I really hope that doesn’t happen. As much as I hate ticket day, at least it rewards the lucky who put the effort in. I know a lot miss out but it would prevent those just applying on a whim and not really caring.

  15. Yup. 12 festivals in a row for me now (fully appreciate how lucky that is) and I've got tickets on TDays, coach TDays, resale days, coach resale days, secret resales day, from my mates brother-in-laws childhood babysitter (true story), have had maybe 5 or 6 different PCs etc in that time but always just have one browser (Chrome), one tab open and F5 every two seconds. Missus was downstairs on a faster PC and couldn't even get on the site using the same method. From all of us trying, I think myself, yourself and Wooderson were the only ones to even see the website. Its completely random.

  20. Not a sniff here and totally totally gutted. For what it's worth I have been testing access to Seetickets for a while (you didn't know?) and until the sale started there were 11 x IP addresses other than the 4 advertised through DNS that would service requests. I had details all ready to post on here of which one(s) you could use in Host files to get in and once I had tested it myself would have made those public for you guys to hoover them up. I haven't posted them previously as I'm certain that See would read these threads and close them off. See are obvs aware to this though

  22. Got in early. Refreshing like mad. Got tickets for my group of six...4 people through this forum @Zoo Music Girl and friends, then went back in and bought two more for random choice for @august1 and friend. What a morning. Could have bought more...but wasted time on someone who had a wrong post code for one member of the group, so I ditched the whole group. Feeling great!

  25. Not (currently) planning to go in 2019, but 25 years of prior attendance means i'm here on ticket day like a Meerkat. Helping a group try and get theirs and if any time left will help out anyone else if need be. Good luck all!

  30. As a few others have said our group were unsuccessful but there is a degree of peace around it in knowing that we did all we could. Spreadsheets all put together a week in advance, everyone had every device possible up and running, no pointless chat on the Whatsapp group, F5ing as much as possible. Sometimes it isn’t meant to be but as devastated as I am at least we can say it wasn’t due to someone not trying. Well done to everyone that got tickets, super jealous!

  31. After last year I'm glad you're sorted... I got sorted but it was getting dicey. My group changed last minute too which doesn't help. Guy - I'm sure we can pull together and get you sorted in the resale? And that goes for others too! I'm already promised my help to one efester.

  32. Anyone needing to book National Express tickets: although they still have a holding page of 'Glasto tickets coming soon' there, Glastonbury Festival already appears as a destination. I just booked two tickets from Bristol airport. So, ignore this https://www.nationalexpress.com/en/events/glastonbury and just to go the booking page and search for Glasto

  35. Seen a lot of people on social media who got tickets who I'm pretty sure have shown no interest in the past and who would be baffled by the inclusion of The Cure at the top of the lineup. Fair enough, everybody's gotta start going at some point, but it's disheartening to see so many regulars fail to get tickets at the same time.
