    Campervan tickets

    No definitely the other way around I seriously don't know which side is best. I've always done west because it suits me coming from M5 direction. Its a hell of a trek to anywhere though and is uphill all the way from the railway track. Gate C is closer to the action but how far you walk to your van from Gate C could be long I guess. As for pedestrian gates I've only ever entered from A and D so I've never seen the "hill of death"

    Its a well established fact that the west fields are crap and that east is definitely best

    I don't ever remember a frantic F5 session to get a camper ticket. Maybe time has played a trick on me but I seem to recall it was easy enough providing you were there for the start of the sale.

    Have to Agree West is small and a right pain in the arse. Its all uphill and approx two miles walk away from the Pyramid stage. It is a serious dander at the end of a long day. I only go there because its handy for my journey.

    Record number of people trying .

    The only perfect system is the one where everyone gets tickets. Unfortunately that is just not possible. I didn't get a sniff at the booking page this year which hasn't happened to me since 2005. However I ran a well organised squad of folks and our 12 all got a ticket by around 20 minutes in. Judging by the stories I'm hearing we were the exception this time around We need a Jay Z type headliner and some rain to dampen enthusiasm. As someone said. It is a bucket list event now. that can never be a good thing

    I'm so out of the mainstream these days as regards to media, so has there been much hype about tickets this year? Are we expecting it to be overly difficult to get tickets this year. I'm saying this because the only year I failed was back in 2005

    Weather 2017

    Preferring a forecast of dry but a little cooler. I remember the bliss of the glade in 2010. So shaded under those trees. It almost felt like being in a fridge such was the heat

    Experience tells me to expect the forecast to worsen but fantastic weather being forecast on BBC for next 10 days. Looks like the ground will be bone dry as the festival starts.

    I don't think the roses gig helped. Both being on the same night. I know many who would have loved to do both. I thought the band were excellent but the crowd were a bit quiet. Sad that intervention was not in the setlist
