    Resale Club 2019

    And with all the tickets allocated within 6 minutes this morning (then failed transactions carrying on for much longer), it's pretty credible that that figure was accurate Thing is, why was the figure so low this year? Is it really so much more popular this year because of the fallow one?

    Yeah it was weird wasn't it? If you refresh the holding page you just get the holding page again, but if you went to http://glastonbury.seetickets.com you got the sold-out. Maybe you're in with a better chance if you keep refreshing to http://glastonbury.seetickets.com rather than the holding page (which was something like http://glastonbury.seetickets.com/event/glastonbury-2019/worthy-farm/1300001/) Worth trying *next time*.....

    When you get to the payment screen the payment details will be pre-filled with the name and address of the first registration number you put in on the first page, so if that's the person whose card you're going to use for payment, just fill in the long number, expiry and CVC digits If you're buying using a different credit / debit card, you have to replace that name and address with the correct ones for the card you're using (and put in the long number etc. as well obvs)
  4. Hi GW, if there's a shortage of bands for bars do you know who I should contact to help get bands in for them? I know two active bands (one covers and one originals) who will be at the festival anyway and could easily bring instruments, as well as a decent crowd of supporters.... (by all means DM me if it's not a public contact no. - I'm not any kind of agent btw!)
  5. Well Neil's tweeted from the ETC that there are supposedly going to be 5000 tickets in the pot tomorrow, which does sound very low I think we were expecting at least double that! Although as far as I know nobody has any numbers from any other year for comparison
  6. Seems there's just the rather depressing news of the low resale ticket count so far, if that can be taken on face value

    Have we ever had a quote of how many tickets were available in previous resales so we can compare / use as a control (ie. to see if they underestimate by a factor of 2, or 5, or 10 as a matter of course) I suspect not, but if anyone's heard of one in previous years it'd be an interesting comparison with this year's seemingly-very-low claim
  8. Yes me too - in the run-up to the resale https://seetickets.com/CustomerService has seen my face at least once a week, although there's no (rational) reason to think anything's amiss...
  9. Really wish West Holts would drop their line-up a bit earlier - so much great and unusual music on there that I'd like to be mugging up on now! I guess this could be said for several areas of the fest, but West Holts' line-up does seem to come from further and wider than some areas
  10. It's all down to how many separate IP addresses you and your colleagues appear to be, as far as the SEE servers are concerned. If you all have your own IPs, then you're fine, you've got lots of extra chances of getting through. If they're all aggregated into one IP address at your work internet server (Network Address Translation, like what most domestic routers do), then you'll all appear like one person, and the risk of triggering bot-suppression is high. The way to find out is to get several of your colleagues to type 'whatsmyip' into google, and if they're all different, you're fine; if they're all the same, you'd best limit your parallel attempts to just a few of you (and keep below that magic 60 refreshes per minute)

    Very sorry to hear that Rich! Hopefully you'll still get there in some shape or form..... or else here's to the big 2020!
  12. Now you come to mention it it was strange how everyone else was there..... ?

    I'm trying for a few of my mates also in West London and we're thinking Reading could be a better departure point than O2. It's quick to get to from Ealing on the train, and it saves the hour on the coach journey getting through London and out the other side, which is where they'd've started off from anyway!
  16. Since almost no-one will be able to take advantage of it, I'd be more impressed if the general coverage of 3G/4G was improved so that messages didn't take hours to get through at busy times.... Completely lost touch with mates for hours in the last few years. Rant over!

    I don't think it works like a normal venue gig, where as you say the headline act get a proper sound-check and leave their gear on stage, and the support acts have to squeeze in in front of that for their sets with minimal sound-team support. From what I've seen the stage is cleared completely between acts, and the next act has been setting up on mobile platforms back-stage, so they wheel on the drums and amps etc. already mic'd up and line-checked, and plug them into multi-way connectors on stage ready to go. So each act gets an equal bite at the PA cherry. Although, that said, it often seems that the headline act gets a bigger interval from the sub-headliners in which to make sure everything is set up perfectly - Kanye had a full hour's interlude in which to plug in his mic and laptop, f'rinstance, whereas most acts get about 30mins So the difference is probably down to how good each band's sound team is at setting up that quickly and optimising the particular space that they're dealing with for their band's sound
  18. Tantalising - wonder what they mean by "a" Glastonbury line up - maybe just themselves, or Block 9, or something even bigger??
  19. Yeah reckon. Be very disappointing if they don't swerve by

    Its saving grace is that when the sides are up the audience can spill out all over the field. Sure, you can't see anything from out there, but you can hear fairly well and pick up the vibe a bit (and there's always a great vibe in that field anyway)
