  1. I mean at £265 ticket, probably at least £500 all in for a Glastonbury weekend I'd say the festival is already restricted to relatively wealthy people. Average wage without tax is about £500, if you can afford to spend a weeks pay on a festival you're wealthy. https://www.ons.gov.uk/employmentandlabourmarket/peopleinwork/employmentandemployeetypes/bulletins/averageweeklyearningsingreatbritain/june2020
  2. Masks only required when you enter the John Peel tent. New stewards role.😂
  3. On the conversation about whether or not they'd have an "attend at your own risk" policy as they're ethical. This is already in the ticket terms and conditions.
  4. Not having an October re-sale period would mean them missing out on quite a chunk of money that could help set up. Ordinarily they'd get £6.75 million from the deposits in October. Assuming say 5% have returned tickets (7,000) if they sold those and the other new 7,000 capacity that's potentially £750,000 of just deposit money to use for the festival from October to April. So I'd be surprised if there isn't an October sale, the only reason not to would potentially be if they thought it might not happen...
  5. Yeah it was the women's world cup quarter final. I think there's a recent history of showing big matches if it doesn't fall on one of the 3 main days. Quick search shows that they actually rarely coincide but they show it when it does more often than not. 2019: women's quarter final- west holts 2016 euros none, announced in advance 2014 world cup, none planned. https://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/potential-england-world-cup-match-wont-be-screened-at-glastonbury-2014/ 2010: world cup group game Wednesday, planned last 16 not on the pyramid, https://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/the-world-cup-at-glastonbury/ 2004: quarter final, pyramid. 2002: world cup final 2nd half shown: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/2076951.stm Edit: Just realised that the next possible men's tournament that could clash with the festival is 2026 (depending on the fallow year now). So football haters don't have to worry too much!
  6. I'm the opposite. I always say listen to your body, if you need to rest, rest. You need to get through to the Sunday night and if that means skipping a Friday Sub for a nap then so be it. Exception is Sunday when you need to power through.
  7. They definitely do random searches and undercover cops. A friend last year, in front of the other stage in between acts had a guy come from outside the crowd straight for him. Asked if he had "any stuff", obviously friend said no. Then he left the crowd again to stand on the edge. Definitely undercover cop.
  8. This forum has been a great way to save my friendship group in the real world from my constant obsession with the festival!
  9. Wet enough to force you into an early 2/3am Saturday bedtime. Saving you for the rest of Sunday!

    Authentic Glasto experience that. Dragged to see an act you don't want to please the missus.

    Abandoned the group who were at Liam Gallagher to see her on my own. Don't regret it.
