  1. With 2020 being an enforced fallow year, I think it would make sense for Emily and Michael to begin planning their rumored Variety Bazaar to help recover from the financial blow of COVID-19 whilst still giving Worthy Farm a break in 2023/24. If it were to go ahead, should it be similar in scope to Glastonbury, or a different sort of thing altogether?
  2. Proper disapointed I won't get to see Another Sky this year 😭. They're a cracking band with heaps of musical talent and poignant lyrics that I'm sure the Eavii would take notice of. I managed to catch up with them after a small gig they did shortly after this tiny desk; all super lovely and really keen to play Glasto, no confirmations of course. Hopefully they'll be down at Worthy Farm next year...
  3. Any idea what National Express will do for coach ticket holders now that the festival is cancelled? I’m hoping they will just give us a refund.
  4. If this is true it’s a real kick in the teeth. Between flights, train and coach tickets I’ve already invested almost a thousand dollars into this festival before paying the balance. If tickets don’t roll over to next year then it would just add insult to injury. I know its not GFL’s fault, but how they handle this cancellation will make or break them.
  5. Okay, let's get to the facts. There is a rumor that mass gatherings in the UK could be cancelled 'as early as next weekend' (https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-51882897). This rumor, if it is true, doesn't denote the timeframe of these cancellations, and so it is entirely possible that Glastonbury could fall outside of these restrictions. Whilst we can speculate about the state of the festival, neither I, nor Emily, or anyone on this forum truly know what the outcome will be. Rather than projecting our worst fears onto the forum, I think we should use the facts in order to remain positive about the bash.
  6. Just bought my flights to London from New York, leaving June 18th and returning the Tuesday after the Festival. I'm so excited to be coming home, especially for this. 161 days to go....
  7. It may be as simple as contacting Seetickets and explaining your purchase went Pete Tong. Someone may have done the exact same thing as you and booked Sticklinch by accident, so See may just do the old switcheroo for you. It might not work, but it's definitely worth a try.
  8. This is gonna be an unpopular opinion but I actually quite like it. I'm not a big fan of the rest of the artists work, but the winning submission is colourful, inspiring and playful. I'm sure he will do a good job with the Guardian swag.
  9. I have to say that whilst I think that the option of alternative accommodation benefits the local community and makes sense from a planning and environmental perspective, it won't put me off camping in the thick of it, getting to know the neighbors and having a good time. People like hot showers, people like a decent place to take a shit, and bottom feeders have tried to fill in the gaps that Glastonbury left open. I think the festival has already changed. 'Stinklinch' is just a way to keep the money in the local community.
  10. I think it's more of a question of wether they can still afford him. Capaldi, Eilish and Lizzo were only in the midst of becoming massive when they were booked for 2019, and will all command a much higher fee for 2020. If he does return, I see him being a pyramid sub or a headliner for the other.
  11. One benefit of the new campsite is that it should help to ease congestion a little on the Wednesday and Thursday. From a planning and environmental perspective, this idea makes sense. As for it negatively changing the demographic? I think it's just different strokes for different folks.
