  1. I think they just need to tackle the popularity and the allocation problem will go away: More mud Unpopular headliners Longer queues No screening of football or other sporting events Bring back the overflowing turdis toilets Ban all gourmet food vendors Get rid of all the glamping options BBC only allowed to film when raining No EE / mobile phone network coverage
  2. If anyone can help..... Reg Numbers: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx removed xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    coach baggage limit

    Doesn't sound like that much to me. Two of us normally have 2 large backpacks, biggish tent (4/5 man), double sleeping bag, inflating mat, 2 compact folding trolleys and 2 small carry on bags. Never had any problems travelling with all that on national express. Don't think they are so pleased when peeps turn up with a sack truck loaded full of cans. Space can be tight so may end-up with stuff on your lap if last on. There is usually some people who are travelling light with friends driving their tent etc down so it balances out.

    On most phones you can setup emergency contacts / medical info that can be accessed via the lock screen: https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/android-iphone-emergency-contact-ice_l_5ce2e6aee4b075a35a2b9250 Probably good to have all the time not just for festivals. I assume emergency services / lost property people know about such things if they find someones phone.
  5. I picked up one of these (was £67 in sale) to replace our leaky old self inflating double matt: https://www.checkfrank.co.uk/klymit-isulated-double-v-sleeping-mat/ Tested it out but not camped with it yet. Very light and compact compared to other options which is great as we're on the coach this year. Tried a double airbed in past but found the bounciness caused problems with waking each other and its size made it difficult to walk / move around inside the tent. We use a double sleeping bag but have separate cotton liners which really helps keep warm if its a cold night. If it's really cold a foil backed picnic blanket goes on top as well. Just use inflatable pillows but put in case and pad it out with some clothes.
  6. Have AXS sent out tickets for the 24th yet? Can't find mine but not sure if i ever got / when they were sent? Doesn't look like it's eTickets? Edit: Panic over: found the print eTicket link on the AXS site

    It literally is the same crane No. 91. Can see the number on the cab at 2:16

    Maybe they just need a big crane to help build Pangea!

    Pretty sure it's the same crane, can see the 2 cab sections and jib on the ground + ohmygod found tweet referencing moving a crane from Avonmouth:

    I was thinking it looks a bit crane like. Could be one of these? Another angle showing the cab here and here.

    Could be video screens. The Glastonbury main stages are starting to look a bit dated compared to the edge to edge screens at Creamfields etc.. They get used as part of the lighting rig rather than just video camera feed. https://www.google.com/search?q=creamfields+stage&tbm=isch
  12. Wouldn't expect seetickets to be blocked but if it is so are some VPN services. However connections from mainland china to the west are generally slow / high latency so don't think the chances of getting a ticket that way to be good. Had one of these sim cards for data last time I was over there, oddly didn't seem to be subject to the great firewall so could still access Facebook etc without needing to mess about with VPN.
  13. Saw this thread and had to check my tickets on the seetickers order tracker. Already checked the confirmation email twice last week but still not enough to stop my paranoia.
  14. Just ordered a Klymit Insulated Double V for £66.46 on amazon It's the more expensive insulated version than I listed above, was £100+ last time I looked. Seems to have good reduction at moment + today's £5 amazon discount. Packs a lot smaller / lighter 1.6kg than a standard self inflating mat. Bit nervous it might leak but looks like Klymit are a decent brand. Will test it out before the festival anyhow.
  15. We tried a cheap double one a long time ago but didn't find it comfortable. Didn't seem to have the right support and movement of restless partner traveled though the mattress. Plus takes up more space in tent / can't walk on it. Have some old injures to deal with now and getting older so some comfort is important. In my youth I managed with just an ancient 2 man ridge tent, thin sleeping bag, no mat and a bottle of whiskey. Think the whiskey was the key to it, but need to look after ourselves better these days.
