  1. If The Strokes are playing, the only thing that's a bit strange about Mad Cool holding off announcing them at this stage is that, if you are a die-hard Strokes fan specifically looking to go to a festival with The Strokes playing, you might well choose to buy a Nos Alive ticket rather than Mad Cool. Perfectly possible that Mad Cool just don't think that will have a significant enough impact to require them to make an announcement now, of course. Another possibility is that it was agreed that Primavera would get a head start for Spain for a few weeks (but perhaps on the basis that The Strokes wouldn't do any social marketing re. Primavera until Mad Cool was also announced)?
  2. Back in October, Nos Alive had only announced Billie Eilish, Taylor Swift, and Da Weasel, and they were very much being presented then as being headliners for each of the three days respectively.
  3. Given the week's discrepancy in announcements, it seems likely that some kind of deal must have done with Primavera to delay announcing other European festival appearances by The Strokes until a week(-ish) after the Primavera line-up was released. If The Strokes are also playing Mad Cool, it is a bit strange that they didn't get announced yesterday alongside the others, and the most obvious reason I can think of is that Mad Cool have chosen to wait until they can announce both Friday headliners, and something is delaying the other Friday headliner? This could make sense if the other headliner is My Chemical Romance, and Mad Cool are embargoed from announcing until after the Milton Keynes show has sold out, or something like that.
  4. CONGRATULATIONS! Must be the most incredible feeling, really happy for you and hope that you have the best time down on the farm in June!
  5. Amazing, that's fantastic news! Nothing here, unfortunately, but it was always going to be an incredibly long shot! Roll on the resale...

    This might be old news, so apologies if it's already been posted, but looks like Festaff's applications will be opening on 1 February:
  7. For all of the reasons echoed elsewhere, a full ballot feels like it would be a worse option than the current system, but perhaps they will now hold a certain number of tickets back each year for a small ballot? While my experiences of ticket buying success and failure over the years strongly lead me to believe it's mostly a question of luck currently anyway, a small sub-ballot would at least allow them to say that there is a pool of tickets for which all applicants have a completely equal chance (providing you can get round the multiple registrations issue somehow).

    Thanks very much, Sku. It also occurred to me that it might be that they won't have that requirement in place for people who did two last year (and so get priority this year), but that if you're a first-timer you need to do the sister event. I'm sure all will become clear on that nearer the time!
  9. I would guess that they might at least try to filter through ballot applications to see if people appear to have multiple registrations. At least it's based on existing registrations, so people would have to already have multiple registrations...
  10. I've found myself increasingly wondering about this. It would be interesting to know what the total number of active registrations would look like if you had to re-register every year (although I'm not saying that would be preferable, having had nightmare scenarios before where a group member hadn't checked their registration and found it had lapsed after the deadline!)

    I was just wondering if you'd seen this confirmed elsewhere? Currently, Festaff's page about Glastonbury 2020 still suggests you would have to sign up to a second festival as well (https://www.festaff.co.uk/news/glastonbury-applications-2020), but I can see that this may simply be last year's info page updated to refer to 2020 rather than 2019, and that things may change when it comes to the applications actually opening...
  12. Hi everyone, I've been a lurker on this incredibly wonderful forum for a few years now, but after a total washout for our groups on both Thursday and Sunday, seems like a good a time as any to properly jump in and join the Resale Club! So here's to April, and all the very best of luck to everyone here for then!
