    Music industry ticket question

    Such tickets do exist, so there's a chance it's real. The rough version is - They'll almost certainly be Hospitality Tickets, which means the face value is twice that of the public tickets. Aside from the cost, the main difference from your perspective is that H tickets grant access to the Hospitality camping and the Interstage area between the Pyramid and Other Stage (there's a bar back there, but to be blunt it's not exciting - the main advantage is as a shortcut). They come from a different allocation to the public tickets, and they will have been paid for one way or another - in the scenario you describe most likely by a record company. They're allocated by agreement with the festival, and under the strict condition that they cannot be sold on at a profit. So it'd definitely be worth confirming whether they're going to charge you for them, and if they are, how much (remembering that for H tickets face value is 500 quid odd). As to whether they'll have been allocated yet, no idea but it wouldn't surprise me.

    New Quechua "Fresh & Black" Tents

    If you've not checked the offerings this year - starting 2018, they've got a model with a small-but-useful porch and it's great. Used it at various festivals this year including Latitude and Wilderness which were both boiling, and it worked a treat. They seem to be (sensibly) moving more and more of their range to F+B - they're now selling traditional 2 or 3 man Dome tents and Popups both with and without a porch, and Inflatables of various sizes. Wouldn't be surprised if there's yet more options in 2019.

    If there's no more Bestival...

    Yeah I'd echo Wilderness - same weekend as Bestival was this year, and if you can ignore the posh stuff (which mostly means pay-extra stuff like Banquets, Horse Riding, Yoga lessons, and Archery) it feels like a smaller, more laid back version of Bestival in a lot of ways. I was genuinely surprised how much I liked it.

    New Quechua "Fresh & Black" Tents

    Quite. At this point it really baffles me that people are still buying tents that aren't F+B, or something roughly equivalent from another manufacturer - I believe Coleman have a range that claims to do something similar.

    2019 Possibilities (Non-Headliner)

    This again? She's announcing a tour of some of the biggest stadiums in the UK tomorrow including (all but confirmed by the stadium) Wembley. She's not playing Glastonbury and certainly not 3rd down.

    Fantastic. It's easily worth 2-3 hours every morning compared to all the people camped around you.

    I can imagine that. Much more than I can imagine the other way around anyway.

    british summer time 2019

    Plus their long term exclusive and very far reaching deal with Live Nation will make anything promoted by AEG very, very unlikely.

    Depends when you start counting the legends slot as having started from.. Tom Jones would have been 52 in 1992.

    'Female, not British' artist for Sunday legend slot

    Of course she's not, at least not in the next 15 years. Hell, she's (admittedly only slightly) younger than I am so nobody is allowed to talk about her in those terms.

    'Female, not British' artist for Sunday legend slot

    Looking at it, the stadium tour was 2010, so arguably wasn't recently - but still a few years after her spell as flavour of the month. Sub would make the most sense in terms of where she is, but the question is would she want to do it when she could easily go talk to BST about a headline slot and ask for 5 times as much money.

    'Female, not British' artist for Sunday legend slot

    She wouldn't, or at least shouldn't, though. When Perry was first announced, the talk on here was that she was a far bigger name than you'd expect them to be able to book for that slot given that when she tours she plays multiple nights at arenas. Given that Pink has headlined (multiple) stadiums in the UK, and could easily walk into an IOW/BST/Rize headline slot, she's at least a couple notches above Perrys level and would be crazy to accept playing 3rd down.

    Resale Club 2019

    Impossible to give a definitive answer as there's so much personal preference involved, for example I'd absolutely hate working on a bar or litter picking but others love it. But generally speaking - I have huge issues with / would never work for Festaff due to some of their policies specifically holding your passport, and charging people an "admin fee" when they're already getting paid by the Festival for your work (and unlike most groups it's not even like the money is going to charity). But honestly, purely in terms of roles Wristbanding seems to be about the easiest and has largely front loaded and day time shifts so you're unlikely to miss much music or be stood there overnight. So yeah, if someone else (MyCause?) gets the wristbanding contract this year then them. If they keep the contract and the things I mentioned don't bother you then Festaff. Otherwise pick a company based on which role you want to do.

    Best Glastonbury book: something to do while it pisses it down

    I'd argue he didn't experience Glastonbury. And certainly nowhere near enough that it's worth writing books about - he barely had enough material for a blog post.
