    Campervan question

    Top tip is to remove your little timetable from the lanyard you get on entry. Keep your ticket in it and keep it around your neck but under your t shirt. Keeps it safe all weekend and you always know where it is when you are going in and out. Stays around my neck all weekend, even when I'm sleeping
  2. even though every time I moved my feet a stone of really sticky mud attached to each wellie. Great gig even if some classics were not played

    2019 Headliners

    Oh for the old days when we had to wait until June before we knew the line-up
  4. 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"
  5. Are we sure they had the right URL?
  6. Its a well established fact that the west fields are crap and that east is definitely best
  7. hoping its the last Thursday in Oct and not 1st Nov. I may be flying at that point
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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

    how do i watch this i think its telling me I cant because I'm not in holland
  15. 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
  16. 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.

    Arcade Fire

    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
  18. WOT = Wednesday or Thursday? Just a thought. Hope not as I'll miss it. Arriving early hours Friday this year

    Arcade Fire

    Same here. All my friends are going I think and I can't. Its my daughters birthday so i will be at home. At least I have Glastonbury the following week. Hope to catch Arcade Fire elsewhere next summer
  20. To be fair, I only included The Tourist as it is a suitable closer to an album. IMO it is quite weak compared to the rest. Let Down would likely make it on there instead. I would also consider replacing Climbing Up The Walls with the Fila Brazillia mix but I feel that would not be right as it a remix and not strictly Radiohead. I had often thought about planning a tracklist for my "alternative OK Computer" but never really got around to doing it. The tracklist I posted with was a quick first stab at the idea. I may refine and burn to CD for the car. It would be an interesting listen. Love this sort of thing. Class, and lists are class. Its all bullshit in the end but fun to do and it satisfies the music nerd inside of us With such a fantastic back catalogue I reckon it would be difficult not to come up with an epic setlist This setlist echo's the point. Jigsaw at start of second encore My favourite In Rainbows track. I know there is a lot of love for Reckoner but I think Jigsaw is a better song I believe it is more mental not to include High and Dry
  21. Burn The Witch The Bends Decks Dark Paranoid Android National Anthem Identikit High n Dry Jigsaw Spinning Plates I Might Be Wrong The Numbers Talk Show Host 2+2=5 Idioteque Creep Reckoner True Love Waits ******************* There There Fake Plastic Trees Present Tense No Surprises ******************* Exit Music Everything In Its Right Place Of course that could change tomorrow, even tonight
  22. I reckon my preferred setlist wouldn't be considered as mental though. I'll come back with that one
