    2019 TICKET CHAT

    Got the registration page once, put details in, pressed continue then got page not available. Pressed back button once then it dumped me out completely and I only saw the holding page once more after that. Looks like my run of 10 in a row is at an end so I've just bought another guitar to console myself...... Congrats to all who got tickets!
  2. Aukey 12000mAh power bank on Amazon lightning deal at the moment, £11 down from £21 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Portable-Charger-12000mAh-Output-Totale-x/dp/B01G18GZMG/ref=gbps_tit_s-3_bf76_b889004e?smid=AP087GSGD7Y0R&pf_rd_p=78284097-89a3-4697-b673-3d468066bf76&pf_rd_s=slot-3&pf_rd_t=701&pf_rd_i=gb_main&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=E9A9CJ11ZVMZMJTR7KR8

  4. I mentioned this last year but for the benefit of anyone who hasn't seen it (and sorry if it's been mentioned this year already). The thin plastic tops you get on soft drink cups in junk food outlets and the pick 'n' mix cups in supermarkets will fit the paper cups that the Glasto bars serve drinks in. Handy for keeping your cider in your cup rather than pouring it in the mud grass as you walk around :-)
  5. I think I've read all of this thread, but sorry if I've missed this already. I feel that one reason people leave so much behind compared to many (most?) other festivals is the distance they have to carry it back to the car parks with a banging hangover. Plus the price that camping stuff etc can be bought for these days, and the volume of 'middle class', well off punters means people can afford to leave the stuff behind, so they do because it's easier for them. We're not talking about the majority of massively 'in tune with Glasto' folk that frequent these pages here, we're talking selfish, just here for the weekend types, who think the world owes them a living and that the £200+ entrance fee includes being cleaned up after and couldn't give a shit what happens to their mess. Sad but true, and unless some radical measures are devised to combat this behaviour, unlikely to change anytime soon.
  6. This is exactly what bothered me about moving out on Monday. I wanted to do it in 2 trips, but I was afraid that my Vango tent would be gone when I got back from taking the first load. The lock ups closed at 12 midday so I couldn't leave the second load there, which would otherwise have been the answer. Consequently I had things hanging off every corner of my rucksack and carried everything to the car in one go, which was quite emotional in the blazing afternoon sun!

    Kasabian 2014

    I've been into Kasabian since their Pyramid slot in 2007, and their 2009 sunset slot on the Pyramid was a Glasto moment for me, but when Velociraptor! was released I felt very underwhelmed and was convinced it was all over. So, when they were announced as Sunday headliners I was initially a bit disappointed, but now I've heard 48:13 a few times and am loving most of it I'm totally up for seeing them 'close' the festival next week. Good to see them back on form :-)
  8. Probably mentioned already but the plastic tops off the soft drink cups in junk food outlets and the pick 'n' mix cups (large size) in some supermarkets will fit the paper cups that the Glasto bars serve drinks in. Handy for stopping spillage on your way up the hill to watch the sunset....... :-)
  9. Here's one I just found on Amazon for £3.61 with free delivery: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Outdoor-Picnic-Portable-Camping-BuyinCoins/dp/B004U8CP88/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1402241881&sr=8-4&keywords=gas+stove I notice it has a built in piezo electric ignition system, and they also have a stand available for £2.83, which solves the problem I mentioned above. The gas can is another fiver. Time for an upgrade I reckon!
  10. I've got one very similar to this, had it over 20 years and still going strong. I would recommend taking something to stand it on as it's easy to knock over on grass with a kettle on top, I use a cheap plastic dinner plate.
  11. Probably mentioned already, but Home Bargains had some good stuff in today, such as: Plastic, freezable, 500ml roll up drink bottles with carabiner loop, 79p in a choice of colours Loads of pre-mixed cocktails and spirits/mixers in both cans and pouches starting at 49p each Andrex moist toilet tissue, £1 per pack Loads of cereal bars, crisps, biscuits, peanuts etc at really good prices, including large bags of Sensations crisps and Doritos 79p, 20 x individual Carnation UHT milk portions 99p, Walkers flavour coated peanuts in various flavours 49p per bag (mmmm, smokey bacon, if they last until Glasto it'll be a miracle) Also some very good offers on suntan lotion.......... NFR NFC If you've got a branch nearby it's worth a browse to pick up some of your everyday stuff. Also bought 3 pairs of men's bamboo socks for £4.99 in TK Maxx, available in various colours. Not sure if they're a bargain or not but they seem to be very good quality for the price.

    I bagged a signed copy of the CD from the Kasabian online store so I'll have to wait until that arrives next week!
