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. Charles Bradley in 2013 (I think). played in Pussey parlure at about 1am. It was 1 in one out and the queue of people outside waiting to get in probably had more people in it than the tent. Unfortunately i was in the queue

    Yes can walk through the area with kids - obviously best during the day when it is quieter. Never been in at night with kids. When Craig Charles played for 4 hours in the afternoon it was great fun and our child loved it. We went to see beans on toast one late afternoon/early evening (2015 I think) it got really busy, was worried we would be able to get out with the cart etc. Child was fine, just the parents who were panicking a bit. Turns out no need as like all my glasto experiences, people are pretty kind and helpful. we will definitely be having a walk through at some point during the day - hopefully when something/one we want to see is on

    More excited by this than the main poster. Avalon is always my favourite area but the line up this year exceeds all expectations

    Eldest son went 3 times before he was 3. Having not got tickets for a few years he will be 6 with his 2 year old brother this year. The younger they are the easier it is to have a ‘normal’ Glastonbury. We have camped in the masses, near south park and in wickets family. Currently debating where to stay this year. Wickets is great, clean, lots of space, fence round to stop the kids wandering, but is miles from where we spend most of our time green peace, park, Avalon. They do have kids composters in the family fields but best to have a travel potty. Last time we were there our 3 year old strolled up to the toilets, walked in, took one look and said I am not going on that. other than having some form of wagon plan well in the morning, use the lock ups for strategic placing of stuff for easy access later in the day. Saves trecking back to the tent. A Glastonbury with kids has to be better than no Glastonbury. It is not going to be the same with kids as without, but life isn’t. What you miss out on by having your child there you gain by having them there. Kids don’t mind the mud - far less so than the adults. My 3 year old last time spent many happy hour running through the puddles. Just more of a pain for the parents trying to keep them dry. I am parking at ashcombe park and ride as can’t risk being parked in the furthest car park on the map like last time. Bit of a random order in my post but just putting things down as they come to my head.

    Kojey radical just confirmed on 6 music
  10. Just going by the info on the website.
  11. The music started earlier last year for the 10th anniversary celebrations hence being able to get into the car parks earlier. The main stages start at 6pm and Something Else Tea Tent at 4pm so should be plenty of time.
  12. @not worthy Gates shut at 8pm on Thursday for entry and I think this is a pretty strict cut off. Only takes about 10 minutes from wherever you camp to the center of the site so no problems on that front. I have never managed to get into the family/quiet camping area as always full within about an hour of gates opening. This year they are doing it differently though. I am not particularly bothered on staying in the family camping area - we have been in the general camping with 2 kids the last few years and it has always been great. Only reason I want to be in family camping is we are less likely to annoy other folk in there when our kids are up before 7am.
  13. Managed to get early bird tickets for the first time this year. School place booked too. Roll on May.
  14. Our group will be going again this year. I love the fact that the organisers genuinely listen to the punters feed back and try to fix any issues that the festival may have had the year before - however, in the time we have been going there has not been anything to complain about really.
  15. Listened to these for the first time last night after reading this thread. Sounds great. Definitely on my list of probables.
