    Glasto hacks 2.0

    I've always just trimmed off the excess with a pair of swiss army scissors. As with @drunk pumpkin I take a portable rucksack, although the one I have has gone up and is twice the price of theirs - https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00FUWSTI8/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_TNSYCbMR6W4RE Try and remember to trim your nails before you go, as you don't want questionable things that are hard to clean off your nails when you're trying to each your delicious grub. If you had anything small that you didn't want someone to take off you, tuck it in your bra or pants for safe keeping
  2. I thought it was j's seemingly infinite supply of JJ's sales figures and awards which they presented to counter that perspective?
  3. Next to here innit? https://www.wethecurious.org/
  4. Well that was all a bit weird, seems a tad less dramatic today hopefully?
  5. I like this plucky enthusiasm. "If I should die, think only this of me: That there’s some corner of a foreign field That is for ever Janet..."
  6. Some folk are just a bit lazy or *ahem* tipsy and need to reach for something just to stop them falling over. If your throat just tastes of old hooch and bile it's not too much of an issue.
  7. Plenty of the things posted in here are healthy. https://www.efestivals.co.uk/forums/topic/228426-the-2019-food-thread/
  8. I was assuming that they're either a large family like the Waltons or into free love.
  9. No, nobody knows. That would be a secret resale and that's what they skipped in 2017. If you looked back through the posts you'd see the fevered excitement in here followed by widespread disappointment.
  10. Not really an exit strategy as such, but thus far it seems I'll just eat fatty foods and smoke too much until I cark it.
  11. You can see the accounts here and the net profit is a great deal less than you anticipate. https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/04348175/filing-history
  12. He he, it's good to have a theory - that they've got a propaganda wing making sure key messages get out on the grapevine

    Resale Club 2019

    I suspect dealing with inquiries from disappointed or frantic people for most of your working day can't be that much of a laugh, even if you get 65 tickets
  14. Some great pictures from 1989 in here if you're able to see... https://www.facebook.com/existtoresistuk/

    Resale Club 2019

    I'm not sure who the casual punter is these days tbh, given how many years the festival has been on, how many millions have attended over those years and the amount of TV and web coverage it gets. I can say I've seen tons of posts even in the last 24 hours talking about next year - sites with lots of followers such as the Feed one which write about say the potential of FM or Macca playing next year, however valid or not it may be.
  16. I quite like these posts where someone joins, writes a very common question that's been asked a lot before, gets tons of friendly and helpful posts but doesn't even come back to read them let alone to say thanks. It's clearly a very positive reflection on how patient and helpful you all are

    Resale Club 2019

    You've not been reading many posts or much social media? I've seen tons of comments just since yesterday with people speculating about difficulty next year.
  18. He he. I've done some pretty grim stuff, but not yet tried to sh*t in a bag. I don't think it would bode well for anyone, plus I'm painfully aware that if it's not submurged under water, sh*t really does stink.

    Resale Club 2019

    Well the most recent precedent, as you of course know, would be none I'm afraid
  20. "Wait, it's not what it looks like!" Were they able to move beyond that point over the weekend, or go their separate ways? That would be hard to unsee.

    Was thinking "that's funny, I'm sure I've seen them more than once there", realise now that's over a very very very long period of time!

    I'm wondering if the reference to the spa is a reference to trying to find a compromise with an other half about a place to go? If so the one in Stockholm someone mentioned maybe sounds good?

    Resale Club 2019

    You can't even go for the weekend or you work weekends? I'd say however much time there is worth it if you enjoy it that much.
