    Shepton Mallet traffic standstill

    Sticking to traffic. We drove in via Tescos earlier. Held up briefly by traffic trying to get to the A37. Sounds like it's all cleared now. See you all tomorrow

    New security measures in place

    Apologies for posting in multiple threads Just been in twice via Gate B. Normally use Gate D which is bigger. Today is a staff/ volunteer day so tomorrow will be different. A narrow gate only two search tables today. Bag check for everyone separate queue for this with No bag only. Everyone else in one queue. Everyone checked but looking for obvious hard objects only. Everything else passed through OK. Take your time at the tables. I nearly lost some clothes. Security nice and friendly. More bag search desks will be added tomorrow. Checks only added 10 to 15 mins to our entry but will be longer queues tomorrow. We will only know tomorrow whether all bags continue to be checked. Have a great one. You will be here soon!

Make sure you are prepped for queuing in the sun!
  6. If the queues are that bad you could also try the Apple Tree Inn between orange and pink car parks to the West on the A367(?). Close to Gate D. No need to walk up the hill into Pilton

    Just leaving for site now for the Solstice tonight. See you all there and remember please don't drop any litter as we will have to pick it up! Thanks in advance.

    Best spot to view sunsets/rises?

    Another sunrise with my sad captains with whom I choose to lose my mind! I can't wait. Stone Circle Wednesday and Thursday morning is the plan.

    Attention eFests Litterpickers / recycling crew

    Hope to see you there. First time litter picking for me. Worried about getting up early enough for the shifts!

    First time working Glasto

    Just head to any of the normal gates and then look for the traders entrance lane. If you can't see it the stewards will direct you. It's usually off to one side. Once in you keep your ticket until you have checked in with the person running your stage or market or whatever and exchanged it fir a wristband. Its an easy process and no hassle. I made the mistake the first time of queuing up in the normal lanes and got redirected. To clarify I am referring to the ticket check lanes which are after the initial security checks Have a great one!

    First time working Glasto

    Hi Amy I am assuming you have a ticket with no photo on it. There should be a traders access point at each gate usually off to one side. You won't get through the normal lines. Show your ticket there and they will let you through. You won't get your wristband until you have checked in for work in your market area. After that it's all fine.

    When Does Your Glasto Begin?

    Mine started about an hour ago when I heard that my recycling crew pass has arrived at home. Such a natural high. Can't wait for Tuesday morning. Hope no one expects any sense out of me at work for the rest of the week.

    Who's arriving when 2017 Poll

    Arriving Tuesday mid-morning. A perk of being on the litter picking crew. Looking forward to the solstice at the stone circle on Wednesday morning.

    Thunder and Lightning and a right Monsoon here in Bath overnight. I imagine pretty much the same in Pilton
