  1. Nah - it’s definitely not happened no pending transactions or anything.
  2. On 3 devices we got to this stage, entered payment details and then no matter what we done, back, proceed, back, proceed. I just couldn’t get a confirmation! Absolutely gutted.

    Good Luck ALL !

    Time for bed now, good luck everyone!
  4. 24 hours on and I’m still devastated. Now me and my other half are arguing because I’m being grumpy. I have this feeling that we’ll never get past holding page again. Whilst I can recognise its completely stupid, I still can’t shake it! This year was the first year we missed out on tickets and we had to work it - I really don’t want to have to work it again or go the whole of winter not knowing. It’s proper put me on a downer and I’ll be this way all weekend waiting for Sunday -what a waste of a weekend. Stupid but like I say, I can’t shake it!
  5. I've been 6 times, 2012 - 2017 with tickets and then had to work this year. I'm starting to get proper dread of having to work every year just to go. There's only two of us trying so it feels almost impossible. I need friends!
  6. this is so brutal. I feel so devastated every single time.
  7. 3 but only 2 trying (the 3rd is my dad and he hasn’t a clue about ticket day!), feel so up against it with the huge group numbers!
  8. I’m up for being included, with only me and my partner trying on ticket day we definitely need to be part of some sort of group!
  9. Oh ye defo, don’t get me wrong we both had an absolutely amazing time, it’s still Glastonbury! But we were gutted with our shift pattern and it definitely did have an impact. It would be devastating to miss it. I guess that’s why we volunteered this time around to make sure we didn’t totally miss out. I’m just praying that we get tickets this time around because like I say knowing there’s a risk of getting the same pattern I think we’d suck it up and accept our luck is out in future. Even though that would pain me!
  10. That’s fair enough, but living with missing ‘a few’ acts/one act or two (as you have previously stated) could be a bit misleading. People have to seriously consider if they’d be prepared to miss 2 headliners and a whole day of music. If you are then happy days it’s perfect for you. The problem is also compounded by the fact that if you are on the worst shift pattern, the whole shift swap board is full of your shift pattern. So the shift swap doesn’t really work because there’s no one that will take your shifts - instead there’s just dozens of people trying to also get rid of your pattern. We engaged in loads of talks with people wanting to swap - but none would swap for ours.
  11. First time and I wouldn’t do it again personally. I realise now that I need to just accept if I don’t get tickets it’s not meant to be. Had we had some of the shift patterns discussed above I’d probably be giving you a different answer, but getting Friday night and all of Sunday was really rubbish for us. IMO you do you alright if you have the morning shift on one of the music days and can get rid of the day or night shift early on instead. If you can compromise and just be glad you’re there then it’s great - but you have to be prepared to run that risk and miss a fair bit of music if you’re unlucky
  12. Exactly - so you’ve got the likes of E (almost all 3 days of music minus last headliner) and B (same, all music except Saturday headliner) compared to D (miss Friday headliner and all Sunday wiped out). Massive difference in amount of music you can watch between the shifts. I think D is the worst because you have your 2-10pm and night shift during music. C doesn’t have that.
  13. Having shifts like this would have made our experience completely different I reckon. Having that Sunday shift 2 - 10pm was really crap when you’ve also had a night shift on Friday too. But I get that it’s the luck of the draw, just don’t think we’d be prepared to go back for risk of getting the same.
  14. What shift pattern did you have? We had Thursday 5.45 - 14.00, Friday overnight 21.45 - 6.00, Sunday 13.45 - 22.00. Have the night shift and day shift during the music was killer. Wish we were one of the luckier ones with the early shift during music. We were on a ped gate and there were so many of us standing around. Also little things like no hot water visit on our night shift because it ran out before they got to our gate, it’s not hard to coordinate a tea run when you’ve got staff stood there all night! Had an absolute ball when off shift, I’ve just got to accept it’s either normal ticket or nothing for me because I’d be gutted to get the same shift pattern.
