  1. What do people use for tracking websites? Not used one before but figured might be easier waiting for a notification than checking constantly
  2. Can anyone shed any light on the WV resales? Long story short, the wife and I didn't try for tickets in Oct as we were meant to be busy with other things but life had other plans so we're now going to try in the resale for tickets. We've done the last 6 festivals at WV so would also like to get a scout tent if we are successful in the resale but I can't remember anything about resales for WV? Thanks in advance
  3. Can any previous volunteers help with this question. If I am lucky enough to get a volunteer ticket (i.e oxfam) do you have to camp in their specific area? Could I camp with friends for example elsewhere? Thank you in advance
  4. Sorry if already posted but just spotted this on the watetstones website: https://www.waterstones.com/win/glastonbury-50-prize-draw
  5. Depends which way you're walking. If going towards WV then yes you are correct. The central ones were the 2man scouts this year but they do change the layout slightly each year

    Anyone got a link to the planning application for what they've applied for/got permission for? As far as I can see there hasn't been one submitted yet. The most recent permission being an infill extension to the festival offices

    2020 headliners

    I’d love GnR to play, meant to have new material out this year followed by a new tour.....long shot I know

    Working it

    Random one but do all the crew get a party once the festival has closed i.e on the Monday night? Or is it just a case of partying with the rest of us once your shifts are done?
  9. Does anyone know why the full line up wasn’t printed in the programme or the mini one? I don’t remember it being like that in previous years, meant you needed a phone (which I didn’t have, not a smart one anyway) to get on the glasto website to view the full line up
  10. We left WV at 8am and we got caught in about 30mins of traffic on the A303 but otherwise was plain sailing. Always seems to be where it bottle necks back into a single carriageway before stonehenge
  11. Yeah it really was rammed. That was the busiest I'd seen it all weekend that day. We were by the ice cream van at the bottom of pyramid and it was shoulder to shoulder there for Kylie Miley
  12. Found the story on BBC. Sarah Adams from Malvern and she said yes: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hereford-worcester-48799241
  13. Ah wicked, can't have been cheap arranging for that. Got a link to the chat?
  14. I overheard someone on Sunday saying it's 25k tickets they let the Sunday day people have. Not sure if true though. Neil will likley know the answer..
  15. Talking of planes, did anyone see the proposal flying over the site on Sunday, did she say yes does anyone know?
  16. One of the best for me, in the top 3 anyway (only out of 6 total though). It was definitely busier though, noticed it more on the Wednesday whereas usually didn't notice it getting busier until the Friday. Maybe more people arriving earlier due to the fallow year or people wanting to make the most of it. Didn't really notice it get any busier until the Sunday when the locals came in. As others have said, only saw people once not using the facilities. Was in the JP urinals after the streets, blokes queuing to get in the urinals and then pissing up against the tarp. General improvement all round though

    Biggest Surprises

    Lizzo at WH for me. We saw her by accident as we were passing to stop for a drink and something to eat and stayed to watch her. Was also my Glasto emotional moment when she gave her speech about self love etc. Great set
  18. The scout tents are always the cheapest options they offer. This year they were £295 for a two man version plus £45 for the car park ticket. They've generally risen the same each year as with the ticket prices so I imagine next year they will be £300.

    The Streets

    They should definitely of had a bigger stage. Me and the wife and brother managed to just get in on the left of the sound stage against the barrier. It was like we were at the front. The security chap on the sound stage our side wasn't great. There was a gap at the back which a few people walked through and were standing on the back of the sound stage scaffolding. No one seemed that bothered though as they didn't get told to move. Absolutely awesome set though
  20. We also had a great time here this year and will be back again next year all being well. As others have said, with the toilets on busier days we waited until we got to Strummerville to use the longdrops there. I was initially concerned about the change from EPO wrist bands to the 'normal' festival ones thinking that it would be a pass out situation however I was pleased to hear it was because they had made WV "part" of the site. Essentially all it meant was no checks when entering the main site which I thought was good. Disappointed with the extra WV band which was plastic though, given they were trying to reduce the amount of plastic they could have used something more friendly. Wonder if they will change that at all next year.
  21. Ah yes I'd forgotten about that one as well. A few stalls missing as well that I used to enjoy. Glad to say the Samosa stall in Other field was back again though. Love that place
  22. May have been mentioned but I couldn't find the Kazbar (may not be spelt right) this year. Pretty sure it was on the path when walking towards WH. Different bar in it's place. Anyone know what happened to it?
  23. Logging out now as will be on my festival phone as of tomorrow morning. Have a great festival everyone an hopefully see a few of you at the meet
  24. No it's fine. You go to the side to have your wrist band checked but much faster than being searched thoroughly as the first time you enter

    There is info on the Tangerine website regarding this under the arrival tab. Looks like you just need to take your booking confirmation if you can get a taxi, otherwise it's a hike through the site unfortunately: https://www.tangerinefields.co.uk/events/glastonbury-festival.html
