  1. Thats a great idea. It then makes it easier (though prob still hard) for us that can isolate and are less vulnerable to the virus a chance to go and keep it ticking over. Best of all worlds really (obvs if it could go ahead).
  2. Not huge pickings here. Dave Steward from The Eurythmics or The Toy Dolls I guess. The Futureheads, Leatherface, Kenicke, Field Music, Matt Bellamys dad???
  3. Nice, one of the first bands I went to see, think it was a double headline tour with The Coral in 2000. Im well up for this, Leeds just down the road and that gig is on my birthday so seems like a perfect gig to venture out for. The Cribs, Music, Coral, Skinner Brothers - sounds good to me.
  4. Theres still time yet, there is a grant due to come out for the entertainment industry, mainly aimed at venues and events industry. Unfortunately the government are dragging their heels on these grants as they prepare them for distribution. That one was announced on July 3rd and nothing new has came out since.There was two grants that were announced in the last month that start distribution in Septemebr so hopefully when they go out then theyll jump on the venue one in time for the pencilled in reopenings in October. Hopefully at somepoint a festivals grant gets announced. I can see more grants coming but tbf theyve had a mare organising the ones out now so adding more to the mix at the same time would have been messy as hell. Thats obviosuly to no avail to those needing them but there is hope at least.
  5. I guess its probably not a huge way off when they have to make a decision. It must be a mare booking bands, staff, tents equipment, planning permission etc and cost a fair bit of money on deposits, hiring people etc only for it to be cancelled again. They might be able to put some plans down but Id guess theyll want to know its going ahead before they have to start really pushing on. For a festival that size they might beed more than six months notice. I see some festivals are advertising next year as going ahead now but its risky and could come back to haunt them. Just no way you can feasibly pull off a sociallybdistanced festival, even if you cut the crowd in half to 100k thats a lot of people to try and control who will be drinking and taking drugs for many. Lets hope they make advancements on the vaccine or the virus mutates to a near non lethal form.
  6. Theres nowt really fair about any options really. Either your waiting 2/3 plus years to even get a chance at getting a ticket or you have one and have to go through the process again. Im sure when they make their decisions itll be based on whats best for both the festival and the festival goers but if it is somehow knocked back another year its going to be absolutely disastrous for the festival market as a whole or even the live music scene and I can see many folding so hopefully it doesnt come down to that.
  7. Cant go to the place but can still set a tent up in the garden, drink warm beer, listen to sets by the bands that were gonna play, get smashed, dance about, wear silly hats, eat loads of grub, wave flags etc.

    efests Exit Poll

    I guess the plus side is it should make getting Glasto tickets easier as no one will have any money and nobody will be wanting to come here for holidays and the like.

    Back-Up Plans

    Well I was planning this being my last festival (at least for a while) if I got tickets, which i didnt so basixally just bring my plan to start travelling more forward a year. Had a look and can do Italy for almost the same price as a Glastonbury ticket so probably gonna go for that, might even sack the resale off. Fancy doing Holland and theres a couple of stand alone gigs I fancy as well so plenty of alternatives. May alsonhave a look at alternative fests abroad if I fancy getting another one in and at least I can determine it by the line up if so. Its not all bad, done the last two so cant complain, its a hrad job to get tickets and felt it would be harder this year so already had it in my mind that I might not get them.
  10. Got booted off after entering details, I take it cause it had sold out.
  11. Its pure random luck imo. You get through or you dont, both times Ive been its been a huge mixture of people, all ages, all class backgrounds, people from all over the world, everyones been sound. I can also assure you that there is plenty of people taking drugs at Glastonbury as well.
  12. Nah, we done it the last two so it was definitely working last time, you get kicked back to the queue but in the loading screen instead of completely at the back making it easier to score another lot which has worked great for us. Theres only six of us this year sonit doesnt matter but defo worked 2017 and 2019.
  13. I dunno if this is the change they are talking about but generally once you get tickets you can go in again and get more so the six restriction doesnt work that way. Wewe done it loads of years where our group has got the original six then whoever got them was able to jump back to the front of the queue and order the second lot.

    2020 headliners

    Nah E Fest posters hate everybody. Near enough every band made it into the who was crap at Glastonbury 2019 thread. People here often like to be hipsteresque. You actuallybget to the festival and people havent got the same opinion than here by far. Most forums are like that tbf.
