    Hi all, The all new http://www.glastomap.com is now available if you’d like to check it out. If you’ve seen it before the concept is still the same: aerial shot of the festival site turned into a map. However, this year I ended up completely rewriting the thing from scratch. I won’t bore you with the techie stuff but the new version behaves a lot more like a proper map interface with the best bit being you can now zoom in to a really high level. You should be able to find your tent but then if you can remember where it was you probably weren’t doing it right eh? ;-) It’s also been updated with the aerial shot from last year’s festival which I’ve hacked around with in Photoshop to try and make it look like this year’s site (e.g. the John Peel move). I’m not a Photoshop expert so it’s not perfect but from a distance it kinda works I think. You can still put a marker down on it and share that location with others so do share any good food stalls or places of interest on here. That was the other main motivator for creating the site in the first place. I know not everyone likes to use their smartphone while there but if you do I’ll have the ‘locate me’ feature up and running by then so you can see where you are on the site (and then share it with others – handy for telling friends where you’re camping). Might be useful for those with a woeful sense of direction. I spent quite a lot of time just getting this new version to the same functional level as the last so haven’t really had the time to add any new features. Having said that it’s all been built in such a way that adding new things shouldn’t be as much of a challenge in the future. If you’ve got any ideas of stuff you’d like to see added or a feature idea just let me know. Things I can defo do now which will be coming when I can find the time are: search for venue/area, measure distance, share multiple markers at once, change picture to a previous year. All other ideas welcome! When was the shot taken is something I’m always asked and with this one I’m not sure. I was told by the company that take it Thursday afternoon but I said that can’t be right, never heard another suggestion from them (and I didn’t want to hassle them). One clue is the pyramid looks pretty busy so at first I thought maybe Sunday afternoon for Lionel but then I reckon there are too many tents still up for it to be Sunday. Wow stage also looks quite busy. Can anyone else come up with a good theory? Anyway, enjoy and all feedback welcome. Cheers!

    I haven't talked about this here... This year was the first time we've been able to go for a long time, and my son's first Glastonbury. I was ecstatic to get coach tickets within a few minutes - we were going! Within a week our world was thrown upside down. My wife was diagnosed with cancer. It's been a very difficult winter. The treatment was horrendous and it's hard being strong and carrying on as normal when you don't know what the future holds. Whilst a music festival is completely irrelevant in the grand scheme of things, and it seemed unlikely we'd now be going, it was the one thing I had to cling to as my escape from the situation. I didn't lose hope of going and you lovely efestival posters have unwittingly helped me enormously. A couple of months on and things have changed remarkably. The treatment was successful. We're definitely going! The one song that I clung to during that difficult time was Radiohead's 'The Numbers' - by no means a big favourite but it was apt, and if they play it I may lose it. That said, it's such a relief and joy to be there it could happen anytime.

    Well, thought I might as well start this thread again to keep all you lovely people informed in the lead up to the festival. In previous years I have started the thread a bit later than this but Brillo and I had to drop by the farm this afternoon so I thought I'd go for it. The ground is, as you would expect, is as dry as Ghandi's sandal. Rock hard and dust blowing up in the slightest of breezes. The grass is super verdant and healthy but I do think that we really could do with it getting watered before the festival.... Hopefully not in the week before or during I'll post regular updates here as we get closer. Brillo checking out the bins and Ivymead, the crew field, starting to fill up.

    Ok i mentioned this the other day. Firstly i cant rememeber who did this last year, but they were the reason i was successful in the Secret Resales. Whoever you are, thank you again. Me and countless others owe you a debt of gratitude. This year im still needing 2 tickets for friends so will be trying my hand in these (not so) secret resales. I want to give back to those who helped me last year and set up this years group. The way it worked last year was having everyone message their numbers privately. People would be added to the group but the group would remain completely inactive untilI tickets went on sale. I have page trackers set up but this may be where it differs from last year. I cannot be certain ill see the trackmypage emails in time. Please if you would like to be added in to the group, pm me your mobile number and i will add you in. I must then ask that for those being added in, if u see that tickets have gone up and no message has been sent to the group, quickly do so. This is the only condition of entry. We are all in this together. I will add all the numbers to the group at the end of each day when i have finished work. If interested please begin PM'ing me your mobile numbers. Good luck everyone UPDATE: its possible my inbox on efests is maxed. If you cant send me ur numbers that way, please send them to secretresales2016@hotmail.com. ill pick them up there. UPDATE: If you have emailed or messaged me and you are not yet in a group dont worry. Group 1 is full. Im waiting till closer to May 6th so i can add everyone into group 2 in one go. As stated previously, ask any questions here and not in the whatsapp groups and try to refrain from messaging with page updates until May 6th. May 6th is the final refund date. It wont be before then

    Just because I'm in a fucking fantastic mood this morning... Choose a festival. Choose a stage. Choose a group of like-minded friends. Choose a 5 day hangover. Choose a dose of the fucking fear like you won’t believe. Choose the heebie-jeebies, sleep paralysis, a new tent and camping chairs on a Monday morning. Choose scrofula, an eight day beard and kicky legs. Choose being inside with no barriers, no fences, no checks, no arena and no restrictions. Choose blisters and Glastonbury Toe. Choose a total failure of your digestive system. Choose dry spittle on your cheeks and sleeping bag from gurning during the wee hours. Choose getting so wasted that you piss yourself in front of strangers standing next to a bin without even realising that they’re watching and laughing at you. Choose hitting the South East Corner and wondering who the fuck you are on Sunday morning. Choose sitting in that field watching spirit-lifting, mind-expanding performance art, stuffing fucking No Bones Jones into your mouth. Choose resetting your equilibrium at the end of it all, heading home ready to spend the next 360 days discussing it on an internet forum, nothing more than an embarrassment to the people who’ve never been and have no idea what you’re on about. Choose your future. Choose Glastonbury.

    Hi guys! Got permission to post my new website here. It allows you save a band's setlist as a Spotify playlist, hopefully you find it useful! I found it useful last year to get familiar with a band's current song lineup before seeing them at a festival. But it's also cool to listen to setlists for gigs that you've been to in the past. Anyway, here's the link: https://setify.co/ I'm actively trying to make it better, so any feedback is appreciated.

    I have just realised someone gave me 2 downvotes too in this thread yesterday, just for asking politely for a link? Made me a bit sad tbh as I'm new here and now my rep is horrible
