    Emily interview

    They had a travelator. You could pay a tenner to ride it for the duration. Nice idea but it was quicker to walk, the Hippy Highway isn't that steep or long and the thing kept sticking due to multiple fat spangled riders. Their better idea a year or so later was a waterslide down from the top of the bowl to Downtown. Unsurprisingly H+S decided it wasn't such a good idea and would seriously affect the casualty figures.

    New Somerset cider for Glastonbury Festival

    It is meant to be 5 percent. It would be ok cold but only one really. I like dry cider so too sweet for me but it is no where near as good as Thatchers Gold. At least it isn't feckin Sommersby or shite like that.

    Bagged a local ticket

    So these arrogant pricks have used a locals address presumably without their consent thereby risking said locals own chance of a ticket? Or have these arrogant pricks done it with the locals consent?

    we tried to go for a run around the farm as usual last night and there were indeed lots of cows, and electric bloody fences everywhere. We gave up and went somewhere else instead.

    Buying a ticket from a local

    myth. you can't sell them. They are exactly the same as everyone elses (one small detail marks them as villagers) and are tied to a registration. They have a picture and everything. There are hundreds of people asking, notes on lamposts, through your door etc. You would have a better chance in the resale.

    Local Ticket Sales 2018

    it is. As is keeping this thread alive. Every year people innocently raise a thread on local tickets when they have not scored, the majority (not accusing you of anything by the way) are not local and are arseholes who think they have the right to abuse local sales. This is why genuine locals don't get tickets, the same happens for Pilton Party although that takes a bit more effort. People registering at someone elses address usually get found out and their registrations cancelled. Electoral registers are a good resource. Can we please drop this thread before more Londoners volunteer to help when it is feck all to do with them.

    Boomtown 2019: Chapter 11

    I have been to 7 out of the last 8 (son got married so I had to miss 2016) and I am considerably older than you lot. In the early days we had to either be dealers or undercover coppers, no one else was over 12. It has got older and there are a lot more mature tourists, they come once and that will do. You can see from the CV field that it is a bit bucket list for some, flash campers and money. Age is irrelevant, how you do it is up to you. Refuse to grow up. Fuzzy is right, there is still an edge that you don't get at a lot of other festivals (maybe Beatherder but different if that makes sense) but we have rarely seen any lairyness. Everyone just plays hard. Most people that I know go once out of interest and then keep going because it is so good.

    Local Ticket Sales 2018

    the more people talk about it, the more people will take the piss and try and abuse the local ticket system. There was a local last time who was initially refused tickets, various chancers had registered at his address without his knowledge. Can we please stop talking about it. Locals know where to get the information, people casually asking probably aren't local and are depriving someone who is genuinely local.

    Tier 1 will sell out in minutes. We are usually lucky but we are on the ball from the sale time. Got to be quick or tier 2 it is. Still going just costs a bit.more.
