    New Quechua "Fresh & Black" Tents

    https://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/vango-gear-store-p367492 It's the green add-on. It fits nicely over the front of the tent. It pulls it down slightly but its not like you're able to stand up in there anyway. Easily enough room for a few chairs and to store any extra gear.

    New Quechua "Fresh & Black" Tents

    I've got the 3 man pop-up. I got an additional porch area that clips on, I think its mentioned elsewhere in this post. Easily enough room to setup 2-3 chairs in there which makes the tent feel a lot bigger. Has anyone got experience with the inflatable tents? What are the chances of a puncture? What do you do if that happens on the friday?

    They're bigger than LCD. LCD aren't selling out arenas anytime soon. LCD were amazing on the other stage but the crowd wasn't that big.
  5. Not black bomber. I bought some at a food festival last year and stuck it in my bag. By the time I got home it taste like wet feet.

    The "I'm Going to Glastonbury 2019" thread

    They don't hold the tickets. It's just that you have 6 minutes before you cant buy them anymore.

    My best tips for ticket day....

    Mine is still going to the loading page on the 60th refresh. I've been running the page on a 1s refresh for a few minutes and all is working fine.

    Honestly not sure. But there was talk in the other thread about the same network having the same external IP and that's what seetickets is going off. It would screw over people in uni dorms/public places so its probably not the case. The worst thing is you don't know when you've been kicked out the queue because the pages look the same.

    Were other people in your house also trying for tickets? Pretty sure other people using the same connection will cause you to hit to refresh limit and boot you out.

    Advice needed: Wedding invite for the 28th June 2019

    Its win win. You have something to look forward to if you don't manage to get tickets.

    If you goto https://glastonbury.seetickets.com/, which will be the link to the ticket page and hammer F5 it'll take you to the holding page. Glastonbury Festival We are currently processing the maximum possible number of deposits per second. Due to the volume of people attempting to book you will be held at this page until there is a free space on the booking site. As soon as one transaction is completed another person will be allowed on to book, until the available tickets sell out. I guess they did this to combat everyone using an auto refresher on multiple tabs to hammer the server. It used to be possible to open as many incognito tabs as you could, set an auto refresher on 0.1 second and get through to the ticket page in no time. Using multiple tabs now just counts as the same session, even if they're incognito. Over the past few years they've made it a lot harder to find tricks to get tickets. Its much more of a lottery.

    In recent years seetickets have put a limit of 60 f5's per minute. Anymore and you'll be bumped to a holding page. I think this was discussed on another thread. I'm also pretty sure you now cant refresh off the ticket page; once your IP is through, you won't lose the page. If you're stuck on a white screen (not getting the holding page), clear your cache, Shift + ctrl + delete.
  13. I've always used an auto refresher and never lost the purchase page due to refreshing. Refreshing again seems to just stay on that page.
