  1. Hey friends, hope everyone is staying well. I want to buy a couple of tickets to see Kevin Morby in July as a gift. Obviously with the current situation I’m aware it may not happen, so although I wouldn’t usually, should I buy ticket protection? edit to add pic, with the refund protection included this is in the terms. Seems harsh.
  2. What is the deal with switches? I had thought the same but can find one anywhere, apart from double the price on gumtree.
  3. It’s inconceivable at the minute that we still might be in this position in a years time. I would “normality” is probably a year away though. I think restrictions will be relaxed towards the end of summer, but maybe then put back on for a couple of month later for winter. I seriously hope we aren’t worried about things like Glastonbury this time next year.
  4. Stay strong everyone. It really is a tough time, I’m finding staying away from news as much as possible is the best things at the moment. I’m finally reading the Glastonbury 50 book and it’s fantastic, it’s giving me a lot of emotional response. Some of it is just absolute sadness about this year, what a wonderful place it is. Anyway, as I was reading, I wondered if next year could be rebranded as ‘50 years’ since the first pyramid stage. It would be a massive shame to miss out on a celebration of the festivals longevity
  5. I sincerely hope you’re right. Some of the things coming out from NHS workers even now are terrifying. It’s put me in a real dark mood tonight, I’m scared for everyone and where we will be in weeks to come. I went out for a jog this morning, and there were many people just going about daily business as usual 😣
  6. I don’t think there’s any doubt it’ll be around in a years time, but I would think unlikely it would be having the same impact as right now. I understand the worry though, the thought has crossed my mind.
  7. Amazing. I saw Coldplay that night which I don’t regret for a second but a part of me wishes I’d been at the Other for this.
  8. Haha last year I hid mine in the house in the most ridiculous place 🙈
  9. Got to say I actually thought the same. Could they not have you confirm via email with a code or something? I obviously doubt anyone I know would do this but I get incredibly anxious about this kind of stuff. When the tickets actually arrive I’m a wreck until we hand them in at the gates.
  10. I am very thankful for that and it’s a small light at the end of the tunnel. I think it’s all just becoming quite difficult to comprehend; lockdowns, telling your parents to stay indoors, anxiety, wondering if you’ll keep your job, wondering how we will all cope or how everything will look in a month or six months. I love Glastonbury and I think that going is kind of the deck of cards tumbling, a realisation that life is going to be quite bleak for a while.
  11. I’ll only believe I’m watching Macca when he walks out on stage Saturday 26th June 2021.
  12. It’s the eternal hope that kills you. The feeling of walking through those gates is so special and I think I’m still in denial about it all. It’s not comparable to losing jobs etc but this year was a huge one for me work wise, with Glastonbury 50 sandwiched in the middle. When Macca was announced genuinely couldn’t believe it all - so exciting! Gah it just feels awful and I don’t feel like my group feel the pain as much as me. If they do cancel it will be very interesting to hear the reasons I think. And don’t get me wrong, I completely understand if they do, I think I’d just reconciled in my head we would be waiting another couple of weeks and that would in turn give the situation at least a couple of weeks to improve. It’s only 5 days since that fantastic lineup was announced, and we aren’t in a place as a country that was unexpected.
  13. Is there a chance (don’t shoot me down here), that they may pull this too early? It’s very feasible that things would look a lot more positive in a month. And if they don’t, call it then? Perfectly understandable to push back balance deadline week until end of April. I understand there are a lot of moving parts but it just seems mad to cancel now three months away when others haven’t yet made the call. I know it’s a huge festival but I couldn’t bear the thought of cancellation, and then end of April things looking good, then into May restrictions all lifted etc etc. Maybe the meeting and subsequent announcement if it comes tomorrow will be a bit more than just “it’s cancelled”.
