    Coach Question

    This has probably already been answered or discussed but couldn’t see it from a quick scan, so apologies if duplicating stuff but .... This year all my group are aiming for coach tickets, however as a teacher I am unable to get the days off needed for the coach and have to be flexible with work so will have to drive. So the question is .... If I get a ticket on a coach am I 100% unable to get it/they collect on my behalf if I don’t actually use the coach service? I’m assuming not, but thought I would check see if anyone has any knowledge or experience around this issue?? Thanks in advance for your help
  3. Update ... ticket now taken. sorry
  4. Hi, I’m not able to go this year and have a ticket for the weekend. If anyone would like the ticket (no strings), will post it to you on Monday. Genuine offer ... Shame to waste it. DM me and we can arrange postage thanks ian
  5. Thanks again .... really helpful
  6. Thanks to both of you for the info. I know it will probably all be apparent on the day but do I need to get hold of a taxi firm number (if so could you advise) or does the site have a taxi pick up point nearby? Thanks again, really appreciated
  7. Evening, I am the only person travelling from London in my group so looking for a bit of guidance before I book my travel. Am I right in thinking the best route is to get the train into Portsmouth Harbour and ferry over to Ryde? Also, looking at the return foot passenger ferry prices, does £29 sound about right? I need to be back in Portsmouth to catch the train for about 9am so assume I will have peak travel time prices? Final bit, is getting from the festival site to the ferry for 8am realistic with busss etc? Thanks for all your help Ian

    The National

    'Trouble will find me' They have plenty of good albums but I really enjoyed that one. The Apple Music 'best of' playlist gives a good taste to the new starter
  9. Fleetwood Mac Prince Kate Bush Bowie From the unrealistic pile And Frank Turner, Royal Blood and Ash from the more likely one
  10. Just been listening back to some of their older work and as good as it is I genuinely feel the last 2 songs, this and R U Mine, has been their best work to date. Really excited by the new album and have a feeling they are going to nail it this year at Glastonbury.
  11. Been looking at recent setlists and by the look of it they have been opening with this quite a lot. I know Coldplay did the same in 2011 but do you think it's a risk opening a festival set with a brand new single which won't have received that much airplay prior to the festival??
  12. As the title says, just heard it and am very impressed with it. Sounds like QOTSA have had a lasting influence on them. Link below if you care for a listen ...

    Backache at Glastonbury

    The Healing Fields is a good shout. I also have a recent back issue in the small of my back so have bought a very sturdy camp bed to get a decent sleep. Also a load of ice cool gel containing ibuprofen to keep any aches away until alcohol weaves its magic spell !!

    Russycarps that does smell a touch of bitterness !! Things change and evolve its still a great festival with so much going for it !! ...... In my humble opinion that is !!
