    Stewards have told people to stand up at PGA... no movement at PGD yet (but we're a good bit back)

    Box office update - The steward at car park entrance has told me they are boxing everyone in until 8am. When I explained we were trying to get to the box office and that this means people will need to queue 3 times he said "it's just one of those things".

    D queue is pretty massive now too - wrapping out along the hedge row back to the orange 39

    They don't seem to be allowing people get to the box office from the orange car park side. 2 of our crew have had to join the PGA queue just to get to the otherside and start queuing again at the box office. What a pain in the hole - triple queuing.
  5. Soooo.... they don't seem to be allowing people get to the box office from the orange car park side. 2 of our crew have had to join the PGA queue just to get to the otherside and start queuing again at the box office. What a pain in the hole - triple queuing.
  6. Given they're giving festival tickets to people with CV's, what are peoples thoughts on trying to collect box office tickets today? Wondering if its worth risking dropping across to the festival.
  7. I'm pretty sure I've seen at least tequila in plastic bottles before but as @crazyfool1 has said, its less common as I would assume it would need to be a specific type of plastic. We've bought a few cheap metal thermal bottles in Primark (€4.50 so maybe £3/4 in the UK). They're perfect for spirits and as they empty you can use them to carry ice if you're lucky enough to find some!
  8. Yep. And the fact that it's sitting at the bottom of the shower, someone must be practicing. ...I just hope she's properly cleaned up after herself! 😂
  9. Looks like someone in my house is starting to prep... 😂
  10. I've no doubt that's the case and tbf, the live events industry was disproportionately affected. That said, a lot of people have pointed out these oncoming issues well in advance to See and the Festival. People are even tweeting Emily directly as well as cc'ing See's CEO on their emails. I can understand gaps in knowledge as a result of covid but people are literally highlighting the problems directly to the top brass but it seems to be falling on deaf ears. Anywho, here's hoping this is all just sensationalism and everything works out fine when we get there! I'll never be as happy to be proven wrong! Onwards and upwards, we're nearly there! 🥳
  11. Tbh, I have less issues with Royal Mail than I do with See. Final delivery is only one part of, what might be, a complete and utter shitshow come Wednesday morning. For example, a strategic decision was made to not post international tickets and its becoming more and more apparent that they have no plan in place to distribute what is going to be an exceptionally larger number of tickets left for box office collection. People are also being told that the parking passes that weren't sent in time will need to be sent back for a refund (and they will now need to pay again at the gate). Others are being told to park at PGA to pick up their tickets (which lets be honest, is never going to be allowed). There's no clear pedestrian routes - other than the road - from the car parks for those who need to get back to the box office at PGA. It's all pointing to a clear disconnect with the on the ground logistics of the festival and there seems to be zero planning in place to mitigate against the disruption their decisions may cause. I really hope all will goes well but right now, the evidence is starting to point towards a messy start and at a minimum, probable traffic issues. Sorry, long rant but it's so frustrating...
  12. This is more principal than anything else but they want to be refunding the postage too.
  13. Yeah, not great timing but it's actually not as bad as initially thought. Not my drinking hand anyway so all good! 😂
  14. So confirmation just recieved from An Post that they won't be sent until Monday. To the Irish Contingent who got theirs this week - did the postman require a signature? Wondering if they'll put them through the letter box.
  15. Ah, tbf I'm in no way concerned about getting in. If I can get them to him @snipe has very kindly offered to bring them across with him on Tuesday (thanks again!) but it's still annoying that they've added this extra hassle. They've also only sent 4/7 so half our group will still have to go to the box office first and double queue on Wednesday morning. Anyway on a far more positive note, the whole ticket fiasco seems to have brought everyone a bit closer on here, which is really great!
  16. D-Day for us. If the 3 that were sent don't land today, we'll be gone before they do. ...And just to add to the suspense, An Post's tracking is down 😂 Are they out for delivery?? Time will tell!
  17. Just watching Capaldi at IOW. I forgot how good he is on stage. Apparently he's got a new album coming out. If that's any use, no way you can write him off for next year.
  18. Glasto weather aside, how lovely is it to have that river at your front door!
  19. If this article is anything to go by, Glastonbury has a similar number of attendees coming from abroad, as it does from London. https://blogs.oracle.com/analytics/post/seeing-through-the-crowds That's a lot people collecting tickets from the box office.
  20. This is it. I'd love to go see Primal Scream... but Jon Hopkins into Chems...
  21. Yr looking more favourable for you (...and nobody else 😂)
  22. Well, looks like I may have broken my finger. Good timing. Does that count as preparation? 😂
  23. Does anyone know what service the tickets are sent with? Might be worth looking at the T&C's. April 2022 version for Royal Mail Tracked 24/48 with signature states the following under clause 14.2: We will use reasonable efforts to collect a signature from a person at the Intended Recipient’s address. If we are unable to collect such signature: 14.2.1 because although there is a person at the Intended Recipient’s address, that person refuses to provide a signature (and there is no other person who will provide a signature), then we will return the Item to the return sender address; or 14.2.2 for any other reason (other than where we make a Change under clause 3.17), then we will deal with that Item in accordance with clause Error!

  24. What a kind offer, thanks man! I may very well take you up on that (and buy you plenty of pints as a thank you!)
  25. The ferry is at 8am so no chance we'll be here for the post. My other half, who got here's in the resale, has received both an email to say she needs to collect at the box office and then a few hours later, that her tickets have been dispatched. Just making sure we have an email trail now because I don't want to be met with the same stupid shit others have had.
