    Volunteering 2020

    Going to try to get round them all this year. Didn’t know there was one at Unfairground. This forum really is gold

    I got in to the booking pages this year and by 9:07 had bought 6 tickets for mates. Didn’t even try for myself. I really went into volunteering thinking it was a one off. Part of that was the Monday arrival. Getting two extra days of festival is pretty cool. Also didn’t realise how many organisations provide volunteers.

    I got sucked into working in 2019. Now locked in a terrible cycle of always working (as two festivals give you priority with Oxfam- Glasto counts as one of the two). You work to guarantee the next year’s entry. Then they give you lovely camping, food, showers, early access. Then you don’t want tickets as you may as well keep working. I can’t escape 😂

    that’s really bad @jfaragher I don’t use the crew bars on the main weekend. Just as an option if everywhere else is rammed or, say on the Thursday night, I want a drink while the SE corners clears at 3am. They are a plan b

    I liked this one, each bar has unique glasses as well. All part of the souvenir collection
  7. Who said anything about them opening doors? Perhaps read the lines instead of looking between them? Anyway...was it a while ago? Maybe due a return? Saw them last night and it was a cracking set
  8. I think Four Tet was a great move. Someone like Hot Chip would be great in that spot

    50th Anniversary

    Or it’s going to be an equivalent line up to previous years. Because the 50th thing is just marketing. There will be more merch maybe
  10. Haha, I agree but they keep showing up

    Deets for registering with Greenpeace https://www.greenpeace.org.uk/volunteering/volunteering-at-festivals/?fbclid=IwAR2RMI_JmmP2CSkaMs5ocSaGIOoq71RgJzI7VIfVnxaM7TYuJ0oMhjSMhD8
  13. First everyone should have to register again. But charge £250 for the registration so only wealthier, and more entitled, to apply for tickets. Put the price of tickets up while we are at it. Then it should be a ballot where if you’ve never been before 50k names are pulled from the hat. If you’ve not been for 5 years you go in another pot. Another 40k names pulled out. If you’re a ‘proper’ festival goer - determined by reviewing your social media - you go into a third pot with 30k tickets drawn. If you can’t handle (based on a bitterness rating of your twitter posts) other people having something you don’t possess (based on luck) you go into a pot with 10k tickets. If you’ve still not be drawn out of the pots but you’re likely to complain about the system. You go into the final special pot where 5k tickets are drawn. You get the best camping spots too. Nailed it.
  14. The ballot would probably tell you how many try for tickets. Number of entries in the ballot + 135k who already have tickets = number of people trying But will they tell us how many people entered the ballot???
  15. 400k ish. Looking at the polls half of those trying got all the tickets they wanted or some of the tickets. With c.130k available I can believe it’s about three times over subscribed. Anecdotal information from people I meet who are registered - several are indifferent - all types of reasons. The forum tends to host those of us who “have” to be there. Changes the perspective imo.
