    Apart from the Fresh and Black tents, and to use sunscreen when necessary, the best advice I could give to a Glastonbury newbie is to accept that you will miss out on some stuff. And you will miss out on some stuff. There are around a hundred stages, and at any one moment there might be three or four things which you'd enjoy, but you can only be in one place at a time. Try to enjoy what you see rather than regret what you didn't.
  2. I think the larger advantage for non-sustainable plastic or vinyl ponchos is that they are significantly lighter and more compact. You can just have one in your trouser pocket or handbag in case of emergency. There's literally no way for a sustainable waterproof to be that convenient, because the added robustness inevitably means added weight. Also, I would imagine that cleaning the fabric on a poncho like this would be a pain if it got muddy (from someone walking on it while you were using it as a blanket, for example).

    + 1 recommendation for the Quechua Fresh & Black line. Getting one of these was a game changer. Before, bright light streamed in to my tent, meaning I had to sleep with an eye mask on and by 8am it often got roasting hot. Now, I'm able to sleep in (at least a little) and it's cool in my tent all day.
  4. If that happened, I'd just re-register with new details. Likewise, if there was a ballot then a lot of people would have multiple registrations to maximise their chances. The current system is probably at least as fair (or unfair) as any of the alternatives.
  5. Refresh, but not more than once per second (on average) as they're apparently temporarily blocking people going faster than that.

    Yeah, I was trying that too but it didn't work for me. Well done!

    So far just 4 people on the spreadsheet in green? Ouch...

    I think the 'Sold Out' page is on the sales server. In other words, those of us who see it got through just too late...

    Seems like efestivals is starting to slow down already due to the high demand. Maybe some people are already hammering F5 while reading this thread?

    Just checked, looks fine now. Someone must have beaten me to it. Thanks for pointing it out!

    I thought that having multiple windows in the same browser meant that you'd lose your entry onto the booking server when one of the other windows refreshed? I've always done 3 browsers (plus my phone) each with just one tab, with me manually refreshing the fastest one (usually Chrome).

    I did that one year, my PC wouldn't boot up again and I completely missed the ticket sale (I didn't own a smartphone back then). Ever since, I've always avoided doing this even 24 hours before the sale starts. It was too terrible to risk happening again!

    Me and @George_92 are keeping the partnership together from Thursday and (together with his friend) we're trying together tomorrow. I've grouped us together on the spreadsheet. Wish us luck!

    I think this happened if you had two registrations and there was only 1 ticket left...

    And I've deleted the second Tom because he was in the list twice, so now he's definitely my partner...
