    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.
  2. Got booted off after entering details, I take it cause it had sold out.
  3. 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.

    Legend Slot 2020

    Its The Kinks.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

    2020 headliners

    Well 2019 was a recreation of 2017 so at least a recreation of 2014 has had a few years gap for a few bands.

    2020 headliners

    Id take Stereophonics on the Other stage tbf, more than a good alternative. The Courteeners can do one though, they seem to play every festival these days.

    The Rock Slot

    With how pop heavy Glasto is these days in a few years time the Kooks are gonna turn up on the metal slot.

    The Rock Slot

    I went to that one and it was brilliant tbf. I really dig the last two albums as well, dunno how well they would go down at Glasto but Id be there for sure.

    2020 headliners

    Personally I think both Foals and 1975 are ordinary as well, basically what mid level bands were doing in the early 00s at small venues. But ea h to their own, I wouldnt be too bothered if both headlined as thatll just mean one less clash to worry about for me and I can look to the other stages for something Im into. Barely ventured to the pyramid this year and had a great time, some of the smaller stages are great and enjoyed watching random bands in some of the pub stages. I think most generations hit a point where what comes after what they liked they find pretty guff, its just getting old and not getting what the youngsters do but I do think its important for them to push new bands to headliner status and give the current scenes a big boost. Though Id probably refrain from doing Foals considering they just played this year, let them do 2021 instead so its a bit of a break. I think a good balance would be something like 1975, Fleetwood Mac and then Kendrick Lamar for example. It of a difference between all the headliners, you got your legendary act and then two acts from today with diversity across the genres.
  13. TBF the Scots helped put Boris in charge when they started voting Tory last time out, they need to geit their teeth and grind through as part of their responsibility for putting him there just like the rest of us have to.

    Ticket Secrets!

    Ive failed at least ten times, never actually been able to get one myself, luckily friends have. Surely Im due my turn this time around. Ultinately its just pot luck.
  15. So whats the craic with The Kinks. Surely if they are making some new music then they must be near nailed on for Glasto. Legends slot seems most appropriate and all ties up for the fiftieth. Friends of the festival, first headliners (even though they didnt play in the end), have an area named after one of their songs. Would go down pretty great on a Sunday afternoon, especially the song about lazing on sunny afternoon (hopefully). Id imagine for a full band its pretty much either headline or legends?

    Tent tax - good idea?

    Well Glastonbury has seen a marked improvement in this sort of thing in recent years - not just tent leaving/litter but pissing on the land, plastic ban etc so other festivals should try and implement that approach and see if it improves. Hiking prices will just justify to some people that they can do as they please as theyve paid the extra expense. Your also pubishing those that do clean up after themselves for others being dicks. The positives is it might make gettibg tickets easier if prices hike as itll push some people ovee the edge I guess.

    Cease and desist :-(

    Computer games have more thought provoking stories than most movies or TV series these days. They also usually heavily promote music and culture as well in a lot of them, found loads of great bands and tunes playing games, also learnt a lot about history, politics, technology, geography and many other things through them as well. Plus they are a great way to turn off and escape from the world. Woudlnt have though music fans would be down on it being music exhibits much of the same in a different format. As to the game, just make a generic festival game and don't base too largely of Glastonbury, have it have faucets of many other festivals and make it that way, it'll still be good and possibly be open to more people if it isn't just Glastonbury based anyway. Love point and click adventure games. Monkey Island was always my fav game as a kid then Broken Sword later on. Good luck if you go ahead with it and keep us updated.

    The Rock Slot

    I wonder with the recent revelation that Prodigy are in the studio and likely to release new material whether they could make an appearance. Dunno if they plan to continue live shows and it would be weird without Keith there mind.

    2020 headliners

    If we take Neil Finn outbof the equation Fleetwood Mac age from 69-76, doesnt seem like a grand plan to make arrangements for five years down the line, they might not even grace the Earth then.
  20. Or would be excellent as the opening act of the festival Mon the Other. Not sure they'd do that but fits the bill if we take into account The Vaccines, James etc have done it. Round about the same size band now I'd guess.
  21. Play the acoustic tent every year.

    The Rock Slot

    I saw Sabbath on their final.tour and they were unreal tbf. Them or Ozzy would tear it down. I went to see Kiss Sunday gone and they absolutely blew my mind. I dunno if they could pull a similar stage show off at Glasto but (assuming they could) I can say they would pretty much steal the show with ease. Seen nothing like it before, was phenomenal.

    Sure they do. Loads of people hate pop and do one as soon as any comes on.
