eFestivals is fund-raising

eFestivals has been here 20 years supporting festivals and festival goers. Without your support it will not continue as it has been.
Advertising used to pay the bills but advertising revenues are much less than they were.

Festivals: if you'd like us to continue to promote your event to our 650,000 monthly readers you'll need to give a helping hand.
Festival-Goers: if every visitor in just one day donated just £2, that would provide funding for a whole year.

You can donate or sign up for 'gold' (ad-free) membership, or you can contact the editor.

  1. I did the supervisor training at the weekend. I know it’s not guaranteed you’ll be asked; but if I am will I be notified prior to the festival? Also would it mean I’d have to get there earlier I.e. before the stewards briefing? Ta x

    Apologies if anyone has already posted this and sorry I don't know who to credit for it, but its good. Write 'Glastonbury 2019' - and you festival buddies mobile number on a piece of paper and then photograph it. Set that as your locked screen saver. Most people are decent enough to ring your mate if they find your phone. Chances are they're only going to be a few feet away too, so no searching for it in any number of lost property places.

    Resale Club 2019

    Got our Oxfam places several months ago, but that wasn't straight forwards. The site crashed the day they were released, so whist I got a place my mate didn't. Was refreshing one day a month ago and up it came. So we're both sorted, so don't give up! its just a pain because you can't auto-refresh that drop down. Worth knowing if you do two with them this year you get a priority place for the 50th next year, so I also have Boomtown booked. So if I'm unlikely again in Oct/April i have me a banker. Well worth considering if you've gone down this route too.
  4. No you may not! I didn't put my name on the spread sheet as I was already in a group of four. Putting it there too ran the very real risk of blowing other peoples chances. Will be all over this competition though, although if its not already been suggested, maybe it should only be open to Gold members?

    Loads. Lots of change notices that didn't even look like a change had taken place as well as adding and removing worthy view, car parking etc. I've done the secret sales, ever since they've been a thing and I've always been successful (except in 2017), for those needing them in my extended group. A combination of being near a pc during the day and obsessively keeping on trying. Last year was a real pisser, but See are predictably unpredictable, so who knows this year? The one key difference for me this time though is that its me and my closest friends without tickets. 😧

    We clearly share exactly the same thought processes and obsessive attention to detail my friend!

    Short of a Floyd reunion, Zeppelin would be my dream ticket and unlike Floyd it is a slightly more realistic possibility. (making the obvious allowances for the shortages of key members of course)

    Got a little further than me then, got the numbers in by 9.01, but then nothing 😭. First fail in 20 years!

    Plus if ever there was a time and place Zeppelin played, Glasto's 50th is pretty high on the list. Personally I doubt they will of course, but its speculation like that that will drive up the numbers.

    How did you do yesterday?

    Oxfam. You need to register here; https://myfestivals.oxfam.org.uk/Account/Register and then just keep refreshing their page of available spaces. They have come up randomly and I'm sure there will be cancellations after yesterdays resale. They look very good. Have already signed up for Boomtown and if you do two this year you get on a priority for Glasto 2020 next year (which is a good banker to have!).

    Morning So we started with about 20 in our group back in October, and after different combinations of coach and main and re-sales, we're down to just 4 without tickets. Sadly for me I'm on that list. Had nearly 40 trying for us on Sunday and whist I got the booking page within seconds it failed to get to the credit card page. You can't expect success every time, but it doesn't stop you wanting it. Am looking into getting a working ticket, but that isn't an option for the other 3 so I'll be here and on See's page for the next few weeks just in case there is a secret sale. Have been lucky in those twice before, and am hoping after the no-show in 2017 that See will carry on with their predictable unpredictability!

    Yep me too! I still have nightmares about the ones we lost that year!
