    T. DAY

    I’m already nervous and feel like I’ll be well out of practice come October after no t-day in 2017 and not managing to get through myself on t-day 2016... may have to start doing F5 drills to get back to peak t-day fitness.

    Does anyone know if you’re still allowed to camp for one night if you have day tickets?

    I can never quite work out if he’s aware of the way that his comments are analysed and he is doing it to wind people up, or whether it’s just his way of trying to throw the press off the scent of who they actually have!

    Plastic Bottle Ban?

    As long as I’m still able to decant my usual 5 litres of vodka into SOMETHING, then I’m all for this!!

    What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    We ended up going for Saturday day tickets at Latitude in the end - we had thought about doing the whole weekend but the lineup didn’t excite us enough to warrant camping for 4 nights with a 4 month old baby!! Might try and also head to Glastonbury Abbey if we can... has anyone been to that before who can shed some light on what it’s like?

    I think Elton John has got to be a good shout for the 50th - massive British artist, will be just finishing up his final tour which coincides with his 50th year in the business, and has never played the festival before so it’s basically the last thing he needs to tick off his list.

    Anyone else missing obsessively trying to find out lineup gossip from the NME Awards this evening?

    You’re taking a different angle to us, we are already warming up the grandparents to the idea of their grandson coming to stay for 5 days and nights...

    Thanks @jyoung, @Homer, @giantkatestacks and @Yoghurt on a Stick! And congrats to both @Hugh Jass and @John the Moth on your impending arrivals too!! I wonder just how many fallow year efests babies there will be arriving in 2019...
  11. I was just thinking about how normally around now I start properly counting down the weeks until Glastonbury... it’d be about 22 weeks to go! We’d all be fully obsessing about the lineup and overanalysing anything that could even slightly conceivably be lineup related. Alas, the fallow year has spoilt our fun for 2018. So then I was wondering about you lovely people and wondered what you all have planned this Glastonbury-free summer? Are you doing an alternative festival? Going on holiday? Doing something else? Staying at home lamenting about the lack of Worthy Farm for 2018? Personally, I haven’t made any solid plans yet... we have a baby on the way fairly imminently, so it very much depends on how chilled he is, but we are hoping that we might be able to do at least a day at Latitude as it’s not too far from home and fairly family friendly. We’re also off to see Foo Fighters and Wolf Alice at London Stadium (sans baby) on what would have been Glastonbury weekend so at least we will get a little live music fix! We are also considering the idea of heading down to Glastonbury for the Glastonbury Abbey Extravaganza!

    *sets alarm for 8.30am every Sunday in October just in case*

    Lack of T Day nerves / excitement

    Would it be next Sunday or the Sunday after though? Didn't they confuse us all last year by going a week later than usual...

    Foo Fighters

    It wasn't buried within an email, I tried to buy tickets (and failed) and it very clearly said that the lead booker would need to be present and that ID would be required before you even entered the "waiting room" to try and buy tickets. Gutted I didn't get tickets as it sounds like it was an awesome gig but I am pleased to hear they have actually enforced this policy... while it must have been horrible for those who were turned away at the door, I think sadly there are going to NEED to be a few well publicised instances of people who have bought on viagogo etc being turned away from gigs (and sellers subsequently losing out on payment) before people start to learn that they can't get away with buying tickets just to sell them on at an inflated price anymore. They do need to address the issues faced by those who had the tickets in someone else's name for genuine reasons though... my suggestions would be that they need to offer a refund deadline (like Glasto does) for those who genuinely can no longer make it, and they need to add an option when booking to change the names on the tickets if they are being purchased as a gift.
