  1. Update. I coincidentally saw them again today. Turns out they could source the hand sanitiser from China after all and actually ordered double the amount! It will keep for years so no problems there. They also said that at the mo the festival is going ahead as expected.

  2. I don’t want to hijack your post, but I have a similar story, some of which might help. My wife Sue was in a hospice, terminally ill with cancer when tickets went on sale for Glastonbury 2016. From previous years the family (two sons, a daughter, plus friends and partners) had a Whatsapp group to organise tickets, and as we discussed who was going etc. we received a message from Sue in the hospice saying simply: “Planning a trip without me?” It was a tough reminder of the situation, but she clearly wasn’t well enough to go. Amazingly, we all got tickets, which meant we would all be t

  4. I spoke to a member of the McCartney family (not connected to Paul in anyway, actually McCartneys Family Butchers in Dublin), and he thinks the festival is going to be cancelled. I also have a mate called Ross (not related to Diana) but I haven't spoke to him in ages so I don't know what he thinks to be honest. I can text him and ask if people want?

  7. There is absolutely no reason to be worried. Ever, about anything, it's a daft thing to do. Worrying about something outside your control is bonkers. Worrying about something inside your control is you wasting time not doing the thing that would stop the worry.

  8. Yep, I'll be 43 in July. No signs of stopping any time soon but in fairness, partying isn't exactly as it was for me, even five years ago. It's different but no less enjoyable. There are some events when I do feel slightly out of place, NASS last year for instance, I was definitely one of the oldest on site but it's never bothered me. Probably cos I still dress like an 18 year old! Love Saves The Day is another where I'm definitely not the target demographic but I'm comfortable when I'm there and right amongst it. I'm a semi-regular at Motion in Bristol and I try to get to at least two Warehou

  9. Hi everyone, Long time lurker first time poster here. This is a bit of an emotional story but here goes. I've been going to Glastonbury a few times over the last few years with my wife and her mother and father, who are in their 60s but are mad for music, and though they only went to their first Glasto in 2015, they enjoy and make the most of every moment. I'm talking watching headliners and then dancing the night away until 3 AM, waking up at the crack of dawn and doing it all over again. Absolute legends and put my wife and me (20s) to shame. Unfortunately, just after Christma

  10. @squirrelarmy - phone won’t allow me to quote and paste for some reason. 1 In China, where the disease originated, the epidemic seems to be in steep decline. At the peak of the crisis, four weeks ago, new infections were running at more than 3,000 a day. However, on Sunday, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO), just 46 new cases were confirmed — not far from the 43 cases in Britain. If the disease follows the same trend here, where the epidemic is running several weeks behind China, the panic could soon be over. 2 Globally, too, the number of new

  12. I don’t post much on here but read a lot, and I have to say the state of this thread is concerning. This website is usually a lovely antidote to the outside world and whether it’s thread about the state of the ground, or the weather, I love the build up to glasto on here. Obviously, I am aware that we are in slightly uncharted territory generally speaking around the world at the moment, but the bickering and sharp responses on this thread are out of order. None of us know how the next few months will play out, and if there are dark days ahead globally, realistically I don’t think man

  13. Today's update: (Note: Yesterday's update was late so a couple of countries may not have posted an update since yesterday around noon (Iran were the ones I noticed). All in all, yesterday was actually an encouraging day... In China, cases continue to fall, this time by 1,374 (17,532). In even more encouraging news, South Korea announced its first net decrease yesterday since their explosion of cases. They were down by 95 (7,212) and the optimist in me thinks this trend will continue as they have been slow at announcing recoveries until now. Elsewhere, it was just our usual gradual in

  19. Sorry, i came across a bit snarky. I just find it odd that people that are saying they're 100% sure it's going ahead are the level headed ones and that people who are showing concern are doom mongering daily mail readers. You look around the world and there's now a lot of precedent for large gatherings being cancelled - not even just Coachella. There's no clear evidence that this will be done and dusted by June. Does anyone's opinion on this make any difference? No and fair play if you want to stay optimistic, but optimism isnt an argument.

  20. Coachella is next month, and as posted extensively; is in a country with a healthcare system that’ll quite happily turn its back on those more vulnerable without insurance. At this moment in time, the UK has a worse problem with than the USA when you go by percentage of the population infected; yet we’ve got 250,000 people expected to go and cheer at horses in close proximity of one another the next few days. Emily and Michael have made such a show of the fiftieth that it’s only getting cancelled if they absolutely have to. Are the people spreading this negativity about i

  23. Hi all, First post here (long time lurker), but really wanted to alert other people who may be in a similar situation. I had two motorhomes booked for Glastonbury through National Motorhomes. I originally made this booking as they had refundable deposits and didn't want to risk the amount of money and not get a campervan pass and in the reverse, I didn't want to pay for a campervan pass and risk not being able to get the motorhomes. In the end I booked with another company more local to me once my campervan pass was confirmed, but National Motorhomes had a 28 working day clause to turn

  25. I think this sort of discussion intersects with social media and the impact it's had on our language use online – it's meant some people become a lot more straight down the line, opinions implied as facts, and there's less of a gray area in discourse or people willing to engage in a softer approach to chatting. It can come off as quite bullish sometimes, particularly when it covers politics or topical issues – I saw it a lot during the Br*xit mess last year. Anyway, I do hope the festival goes ahead as I had a great time last year and would love to be out in the sun with some beers watchi

  26. I’ve been having an argument with some of my friends who want the whole country locked down now and think it’s irresponsible that we aren’t doing anything. I’ve been trying to explain that despite us supposedly doing nothing, our daily increase in cases is fairly flat and much lower than the rate the worst hit countries have been increasing - despite them putting some pretty severe measures in place. The reality is our cases are going up at a rate roughly in between the best and the worst rates, and that’s with us doing very little. So with Glastonbury parked to one side, I’m in

  29. As an accountant and auditor, I would assume that if the event was to get cancelled or postponed with the option of allowing people to hold their deposits to next year, there would be no tax implication due to the funds being related to an event in a completely different tax year. The funds won’t be chargeable for corporation tax purposes and would be classed as a liability on the balance sheet as deferred income with a disclosure requirement in line with post balance sheet events policy.

  30. Good assumption: as a matter of fact it has been already leaked that Elrow will take place the first day and Claptone will perform there. On the other hand, we have Jon Hopkins + Floating Points and Jamie Jones B2B Capriati + Camelphat on the A38, and this is good!

  36. So sorry for your loss but your story makes me realise why I love this festival of ours so much. It's a festival with a heart, that recognises that sometimes having the compassion to do everything to give a family those special memories is just a magical thing. Hope you and your family are coping well and so glad that you have those wonderful memories to look back on.

  42. I think the sensible thing to do is to all take sensible precautions . MY OH has a very bad heart condition and although not in a vulnerable age range he is in a vulnerable group and we are doing everything possible to reduce the risk without impacting on work etc. until told otherwise He works in a garage of 3 others so not as bad as some working in an office. If I can't get shopping delivered which is nigh on impossible at the min then I go at 5.00 when very few people are about It's a calculated risk at the minute and we rarely go out so not a problem socialising certainl

  43. There's a weird level of speculation going on in here. I'm very worried about this being cancelled just like the rest of you but let's just wait and see how it plays out.
