  1. 2003 was my 1st too. Had thought about it for years and eventually got around to getting a ticket- I remember getting a couple of tickets the day after they went on sale with no idea of who I'd go with. Ended up going with my old school friend and had a blast. We would see bands during the day/evening and as he wasn't into dance music too much I'd meet up with some people I knew off a clubbing website at the night time to go around the late night areas. One of my highlights was this First time I had ever heard them and was blown away- ended up seeing them several times over the years afterwards before Arthur died
  2. Loved this series- best thing watched in a while I read that the record shop whilst supposed to be in Leith- the location it was filmed was in Glasgow (as was some other parts of the series as apparently they were struggling to film in Edinburgh, I think due to the festival)

    Crowded house.

    I remember when Zane Lowe used to present the BBC coverage and in 08 was talking about his highlight of a particular day and I was expecting him to say some alternative/rock band but he went for Crowded House- part he said to him being a kiwi but a good choice anyways. I'd definitely be up for this
  4. On the WOMAD FB page someone asked that question and was told that they were basically that I also had it confirmed that payment plans are available too
  5. Hi all Just seen a tweet that Tier 1 tickets go an sale at 10am on the 20th of November @eFestivals in case you want to know

    On the Crew Bar front I really like Maceos & Tow and Hitch. Also like the Acoustic Stage one and used that a lot in 2016 to get respite from the rain/mud. Heard that in 2019 though you needed specific crew passes once the festival kicked off properly Heard good things about the John Peel one but never found that one.

    Yes- they wouldn't let us (recycling crew) in on the Tuesday night
  10. Went to see OMD last night and they were great (3rd time I have seen them) They're touring in June on the Let's Rock 80s fest thing so wouldn't mind them being at Worthy Farm
  11. As far as I know though never been on coach is that on the outward journey it shouldn't be a free for all as this is more what happens on the return leg i.e. when you leave Glastonbury

    There is maybe this one that I posted about a couple of pages back I myself have always done it direct with the festival via Fiona as that's how I 1st did it back in 2005 and yes it is only open to those that have done it before or recommendations. I think the latter are dwindling in numbers as more and more go back every year and by having the recommendation/returnee approach less and less people sag it off and get on the blacklist that new spots are rare. And also with so many hitting veteran status (5+ years) the veteran shifts are over subscribed- I didn't get any of the veteran shifts this year.

    This year Wateraid were in the same field as the recycling crew (Tom's Field up behind the farmhouse) so inside the fence as opposed to Oxfam who are outside the gate. You wouldn't be able, therefore, to bring a campervan into the Wateraid field. Friends of mine who I work on recycling with bring their campervan every year but have to park it in the same field as the general public.
