2016 for me. Leaving from Edinburgh at 11pm and getting into the festival nearly 6pm the next day after being stuck in that traffic. But that minor bump didn't stop such an amazing weekend!! not going to lie, I did see Glastonbury as just another festival just on a bit of bigger scale but it wasn't until I saw Adele SMASH that headline pyramid set, that everything fell into place and just started to really GET the festival and what it was all about.
I would say I was pretty submissive to my friend requests of who we see throughout my first year, the site was overwhelming and didn't want to lose her for hours upon end. But ended up with a lucky ticket in the 2017 resale and going with friends I had made in 2016. During the build up and I found this site and started reading topics, stories and tips and gave me the confidence to be okay if you don't want to see someone and can just wander by yourself for a bit (Which I ended up doing. Grabbing a pizza and wandering round different stages for a couple of hours) and made me love this place even more. For that I want to give a big shout out to everyone on this site, Truly is a special place and festival.
