    Truck 2022

    Anyone know if Rucksucks allowed into the arena? Can't see anything that says either way but might be missing it!

    I do like the investigation though on here, and also other than stupidly small sets for one performance acts like Paolo which are basically not ever going to be attendable (even Nick Mulvey was not on Thursday) if you plan to go if you hear its someone you want to see and are organised and aware that it will throw your plans off you can get a good spot generally for the bigger acts or at least I did for Jack White, Vampire Weekend and The Killers over the last 3 festivals. All of which were brilliant!

    Truck 2022

    Anyone whose been before know what type of toilets they have in the arena at Truck? We are not camping so be good to know what the wife will need to contend with, used to Reading where the arena ones are flushablea and Glasto where they are basically all compost!
  5. I walked to Strummerville after Jack White.. pretty sure it was faster than queueing!
  6. 118k steps, 94.39km in total over the 5 days.. must have big steps!
  7. I'm going to sound like a right old git.. but having not been in a tent for ages I'm fed up with people who insist on smoking in them despite the signs.. I get it you are at a festival but it makes my hayfever worse and people seem to have forgotten if you let it go sideways it goes straight into the next person's face!
  8. You lot have got me doing one now to see... sore throat today but I think that was from singing too much at Macca and Jack White and is normal for me post festival.. will update shortly! Edit: Negative
  9. Bizarrely Wet Leg was fine down the front not a crush in sight probably the best crowd I've been in!

    Based on the above idles?
  11. What happens if you lose the passout (or worse the ticket).. always wondered in fear!

    See Coaches

    We had quite the adventure yesterday.. rather stressful for the poor driver... A hire van was in petrol station parked up... sort of.. driver out in petrol station We approached this vehicle that we thought was reversing in the road... Turns out vehicle was not reversing.. but was freewheeling out the petrol station into the road towards where we were about to be! And then we got lost no thanks to the people on yellow gate not wanting to let us in! Had to do a difficult U turn then a very wide turn into the festival! Made it safely though!

    My Reading coach was on time arriving, still trundling along through Bristol though!

    Secret sets 2022

    I think we are missing a stage at least in Shangri-la surely they've not gone from 7 stages to 4? I know we have lost the earache linked one right? As that does not fit with other times on any stage down there (currently)
  16. According to the App and link on page that is "Tiggs Da Author" .. unless that link is now wrong?

    Make that Mary not Stella!

    Paul McCartney

    Has anyone got access to a copy of the Daily Express saw on the BBC their front page has a headline "Why Macca's going back to his greatest hits", can anyone find that (I can't!) /have a copy nearby to see if its about Glastonbury? I've got it search just does not work https://www.express.co.uk/celebrity-news/1628023/paul-mccartney-beatles-performance-greatest-hits quote from Stella basically, sounds promising but I wanted Junior's Farm! (I'll manage if we get Yesterday, Eleanor Rigby and The Long and Winding Road though!)

    Secret sets 2022

    What type of stage setup does Jack White have that means they need a 45 minute gap rather than the usual 30 for other secret sets? That is the one thing that is a little odd really!

    Secret sets 2022

    We all think its Jack White at the moment.. although I think I'm correct our evidence is one poster who knows a sound engineer at the Park? Anything else appeared yet?

    I have never seen any act more miserable personality wise than Toploader (co-headlining?) with the Hoosiers in Basingstoke! Musically they were okay but the guy definitely didn't want to be there!
  22. If I were doing it I would have a fairly simple solution of a few offline mini servers per gate which will be a few tb of storage raided with everyones photo stored on each covering each gate area containing all the photos matched to QR code that had been distributed.. scan QR which has photo with it.. photo is then displayed to person scanning, if this does not match picture or person... no entry... I reckon that could could be done if they had digital/printable tickets with a QR obviously with an upfront cost but fairly usable for a number of years with plenty of redundancy. If the solution requires 4g or wifi it suddenly becomes more complex some, hard wired is better!

    Is there anyone else who is committing to either of the big TBCs regardless of who it is? It feel a bit bananas but other than Cassetteboy who I've missed enough times there is no one I want to see in the John Peel slot so may just gamble on that one and I'm open to being surprised. The Park band however I think is going to be the big one of the two (and has better clashes for me), they've got 45 minutes prep time for starters, so despite there being more clashes it seems like a good bet, Elbow and Foals had the usual 30 minutes in 17/19. Could that mean a band with lots of instruments/a big stage setup?
  24. Yeah you would hope so... if they just give a refund (which they have to now as a minimum) that is basically awful.. all anyone with tickets wants to do is go to their event. I'd love to be able to vote with my feet and boycott See going forward but with Glastonbury that is rather hard... I feel like Glastonbury are poor not sorting this out with fast answers... even Fyre Festival didn't cock this bit up!
