  1. Aye, going to Seville for 4 days, then Malaga for 4 days as part of a single trip. I'm going a week on Sunday. I'm guessing it's going to go down to the 11th hour before I know if I'm going or not...
  2. I don't. Where do you find that info? I'm aiming for Leeds so pretty certain that will be an option, but not sure where in Leeds it goes from. There could be other possibilities too.
  3. I'm considering going for coach resale as well as general. The only thing is, can I heck as like find any info on them. Do you just have to wait until you're at the booking page with mere seconds to spare before sellout to start browsing a list of locations/days/times or can this be planned out in advance? Like now? I've got a minimum 90 minute drive to my nearest coach pickup point I think, and will need to look into 5 days or parking, and getting a car park near the coach pickup point etc.
  4. @Ben_Monk Are you feeling lucky? Well are ya??
  5. Can someone explain to a dim fish precisely how this is going to work please? I seem to be in a group of my own at the moment - does that mean I'm just trying for myself and some kindly other people might also be trying on my behalf? If someone succeeds on my behalf I then provide them with my relevant payment details so they can buy. If I get put into a group with two others - how does this work at payment? I can't remember the payment screen on the website even though I've been a lot since 2005 as it's usually such a frantic time! Would one of us have to pay for all 4 tickets up front and then receive the relevant money back from the other party - or can you split payment on the site? Cheers.
  6. That's tremendous info thanks. Thinking of working a half day on the Thursday then popping down after lunch arriving around 3:30ish so that sounds ideal for making the most of it yet missing the morning rush. Enjoying the bar list. Although "pub prices" to me is more like £3.20-50, I guess £4 is cheap for a festival 😉 But is it really £4 a pint for a 10% beer?? 😨
  7. So after reading reviews and seeing the lineup I've booked tickets to this to get over the disappointment of failing for Glastonbury tickets. If I get lucky in the Glasto resale I'll just have to make peace with the fact I'll kill myself by going to two festivals a month apart. That being said: Tell me about the festival! What goes down on the Thursday? Should I get their early? What weird and wonderful things can you get up to after dark? What cider do they sell??
  8. Great work. Good luck to everyone!
  9. So I phone Waterstone's and they said they still had a "small amount of stock" left of the signed version, and advised I immediately return the book to the store from which I collected it. I did that and they've cancelled the order (the book I returned went into stock at the local store), and they created a new order and said the correct book should be with me shortly. So I'd act quick if you have an unsigned book! They didn't mention whether my old order being cancelled would affect my entry into the ticket draw........
  10. So I opened it. Aaaaand it's not signed ? Contacting Waterstone's to find out if it can be replaced in time.... Could do with some compensation for this. Perhaps two Glastonbury tickets will appease me.
  11. Quandary: I've bought this for my girlfriend for her birthday mid-December. It's currently on my desk at work, still in it's packaging. I want to read it. What do I do?

    Sold out

    I kept hitting back and proceed for about 20 minutes after it sold out until I realised it had remove my registration numbers ?
  13. Shame about the secret resale. It usually takes me 10-15 mins to get onto a holding page (if at all), they'll all be gone by then in April. Is there a separate coach-only resale?
  14. Can I please join your club? Also, do they still do post-April "secret" resales nowadays, or is it April-or-bust?
  15. Fearless_Fish

    Sold out

    Thursday and today, got to enter reg numbers but got no further
  16. Has anyone got any photos from within these pointed behemoths?

    And next year it is going to GO OFF
  18. So are we saying the only scrumpy on site now is at the Cider Bus?
  19. Ahh. It was just listed as "still" so no idea what it was. Better than bloody Mallet's though.

    Is It Too Hot?

    The temperature turned on a sixpence
  21. So, where the heck was all the scrumpy?? Avalon Inn last year, scrumpy £4.50 a pint. This year Mallet's only for £6!!! Craft cider bar gone and replaced with.... nought. Asked for Burrow Hill in main bars - nowt doing. Only places on site I found were the Cider Bus and Bimble! Poor form.
  22. I would have been dead by now if it wasn't for Pizza Tabun. It was amazing, and ideally placed to refuel before late night shenanigans. It was also about £3-4 cheaper per pizza than the "wood-fired" stalls (albeit smaller - but an individual pizza here is an ideal size for 1).
  23. Without wanting to get ahead of myself... but I go to one festival a year, and have done since 2005. If this forecast holds firm, the best 3 festivals I'll have had weather-wise would be 2017/2018/2019. And thank Poseidon too, given the injuries I have! Another 2016 would've finished me off. I can't believe I'm confident enough to laugh at pictures of puddles - don't think I've ever been this confident for a Glasto forecast. Perhaps it was the introduction of the RAM Jam Jar, having knowledge truly is having power! I fully expect some unreported downpour at some point over the weekend, but that'll hardly impact on the weekend as a whole.
