    The Cribs

    Love them. Afternoon slot in JP would go down very nicely thank you, if they'd do it. Step down from headlining a few years ago but I was there and it was sadly very sparse.

    Muddy / non-muddy years

    Very much this

    LCD Soundsystem....

    Late Saturday night 4 of us were looking to carry on the party after a few post-headliner beers at the Park, decided against the madness of the naughty corner (we love it, but my cousin, whilst having a LOVELY time, was only functioning at about 50% consciousness and we know how busy it gets) so decided to give Arcadia a go. Oh. My. God. The mud was beyond epic. People flailing everywhere. The queue for the bar was just 2 ropes containing a literal mudbath. Everyone went down at some point, and was immediately helped back up by friendly hands. Between the effort of walking, the punishingly loud sound system and the constant hilarity we were weak with laughter- it was so not the night we expected but all the more brilliant for that. Yeah, 2016 was good.

    LCD Soundsystem....

    I loved 2016. Apart from getting a bit excited and overdoing it on Thursday night, being put to bed and waking up with the worst hangover of all time on Friday. Then the Brexit result sent me into weeping existential dread for a few hours but... Christine and the Queens brought me back to life. Heaton and Abbott. Sigur Ros. ELO. John Grant. New Order. Fisherman's Friends. And the absolute TRIUMPH that was LCD. Yeah, it was muddy, the build up was full of doomsday talk and misguided (non attending) folks being smug about the 'inevitable' quagmire but it seemed to me that almost made everyone a bit nicer- saw loads helping each other. Dunkirk spirit and all that!

    John Peel Stage 2019

    Good God that was a good year. Neil Young, YYYs, Spinal Tap, Nick Cave, Bluuuuuuuuuuur. I made good choices. I mean it's always a good year though isn't it. Is anyone else way more excited at all the potential JP names being thrown around, rather than the Other?

    Even more pressure to get 2020 tickets then...

    After their TRIUMPHANT performance in 2016, any chance of a return visit? Too soon? God that was a great show.

    Working The Festival

    Just had this useful (albeit widely advertised!!) link sent in my weekly email from MSE - https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/team-blog/2018/10/missed-out-on-glastonbury-tickets--how-you-can-still-go-for-free/ Includes info and registration links for various organisations including Oxfam Shelter, Festaff, WaterAid, litter picking etc.

    2019 TICKET CHAT

    Thanks that's reassuring. And it made me check my bank account more closely - mine doesn't actually list pending transactions BUT noticed my available funds is £309 less than it should be, so that's presumably it, plus another small transaction that hasn't cleared. Relaxing a bit now!

    2019 TICKET CHAT

    So, after weeks of planning, spreadsheets and the frustration of a glitchy booking page in Thursday's sale, lucky me somehow got in on Sunday and (after the standard white page of doom/ enter details/ crash/ backup/ proceed x several attempts/ card refused/ 2nd card accepted) managed to get 6 tickets for our group. I've had the email confirmation and checked on the Seetickets website, it's all confirmed. BUT no money taken yet. Should I be worried? Don't think it's ever taken this long before... There are adequate funds and I've had confirmation - they couldn't renege on it at this stage could they?

    My best tips for ticket day....

    Yep. Beyond shitty.

    My best tips for ticket day....

    This. SO fucked off. Had details in from 6.15, tried numerous Thursday locations and it kept jumping from 1 to 6 registrations, absolute BS. Wouldn't let me proceed. In fact I can STILL select various options now but going straight to sold out page.

    Previous Coach Timetables

    In 2016 I got a coach from Reading at 8/9am (can't remember which... know it was rush hour... bloody train from London broke down and I only made it in a taxi by the skin of my teeth) and my friend was on a later coach at noon.

    Yep. Just in front of the barrier, centre stage. It got tiresome...
