eFestivals is fund-raising

eFestivals has been here 20 years supporting festivals and festival goers. Without your support it will not continue as it has been.
Advertising used to pay the bills but advertising revenues are much less than they were.

Festivals: if you'd like us to continue to promote your event to our 650,000 monthly readers you'll need to give a helping hand.
Festival-Goers: if every visitor in just one day donated just £2, that would provide funding for a whole year.

You can donate or sign up for 'gold' (ad-free) membership, or you can contact the editor.

  1. No pole in the center of a scout tent we fit a self inflating double mat (130cm x 200cm) in one into a 2 man scout tent in 2017 with a bit of room to the side of the mattress for bags
  2. On point 3 technically you are meant to bring all your alcohol in with you when you first arrive. However I don’t think this is enforced. From the 2017 WV useful info email: “You are allowed to bring your own alcohol to Glastonbury Festival, but we only allow a reasonable quantity for personal consumption (no more than you can carry in your hands on your first arrival to the campsite). Please do remember glass bottles are not permitted, any glass will be confiscated.”
  3. If you are buying a new bed get a self inflating mattress i find them much comfier then air beds and you dont need to worry about inflating it. We used a Vango comfort 10 double its very bulky but thats not really an issue if you are driving and parking in WV car park . (its comfier then some beds i have slept on) +1 for power banks in particular Anker Powercore 20100 mah regularly can be got for around 27gbp (use camelcamelcamel to set a price alert on amazon) depending on your phone you should easily get 4-5 charges (probably more) out out one we have 3 and they are better then any other power bank i have owned
  4. If it helps anyone i got Thursday bus tickets about 9 mins into the sale Was using 6 machines (3 windows, 2 mac, 1 raspberry pi with linux) 2 on wifi , 2 on a phone hotspot and 2 more on different phone hotspot all runining chrome Got through on a mac with a 4g Hotspot I had 1 tab open on each machine and kept pressing refresh as fast as i could in a loop (this left about a 4-6 second interval for each machine refresh) Ended up getting through with a mac on a hotspot One thing to note when trying to pay the page became unresponsive, I copied the URL to another tab put in the credit card details again and was able to pay Also i did end up getting a white screen a few times with a bit of text saying something about the server being overloaded refreshing this page didnt seem to ever kick me back to the queue, but going back to this page https://glastonbury.seetickets.com (keep it bookmarked) and selecting my bus date again got me back into the queue quickly
  5. Did anyone get a ticket from Bristol? And if so did you select a departure time? i managed to get my tickets but didn’t put in a bus time The confirmation screen says “thursday 27th June - various departures” then a little further down it says “Bristol single travel (DEP 6:30)” did i accidentally book the 6:30 am bus?
  6. Anyone still looking for Powerbanks the Anker Powercore ones are much cheaper on amazon.fr 26 euro for 20100mah same one is 30 pounds on amazon uk Bought 2 for 58 euro shipped to the uk
  7. My local tesco (Ireland) have 2 man tents scanning for €4.50 (marked at €18) https://www.tesco.com/direct/tesco-2-man-tent-with-porch/728-6120.prd?skuId=728-6120 Also they have these http://www.outdoorcampingdirect.uk/summit-adult-emergency-poncho.html for 58c Might be store specific but possibly in every store might be worth a shot for some people
  8. https://www.amazon.co.uk/AUKEY-Portable-Charger-20000mAh-Lightning/dp/B01H01C720/ref=gbps_tit_s-3_bf76_9134320b?smid=AP087GSGD7Y0R&pf_rd_p=78284097-89a3-4697-b673-3d468066bf76&pf_rd_s=slot-3&pf_rd_t=701&pf_rd_i=gb_main&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=9AW2ZVZRF451Z8E6VWZ5 Another cheapish power bank on a lightning deal for the next 4 hours
  9. Amazon seem to have lightning deals on some power banks over the last few days Got a Anker 20,100mah one yesterday for 23 pounds https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00VJSGT2A/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 And a Aukey 12,000mah one just now for 10 pounds (Still available at 10 pounds for another hour or so) https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01G18GZMG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Those two paired with my old Anker 13,000mah battery should keep the girlfriend able to snapchat all weekend long
  10. Ali Express have pretty cheap hydration packs will probably take a month or two to arrive but that should be ok assuming you only want it for the festival https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3L-Portable-Hydration-Packs-Camo-Tactical-Bike-Bicycle-Camel-Water-Bladder-bag-Assault-Backpack-Camping-Hiking/32637194392.html?spm=2114.13010608.0.0.T7v73R https://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-Arrive-Mini-Running-Backpack-2L-Water-Bag-Cycling-Bag-Hiking-Climbing-Hydration-Backpack-Mountain-Pack/32727320813.html?spm=2114.13010608.0.0.T7v73R
