    The "I'm Going to Glastonbury 2019" thread

    After missing out in 2017 I managed to bag tickets this year at about 9:31 after thinking they must be almost all sold. To all those that have missed out I absolutely feel for you all but don't give up hope, there's always the resale. I did manage to get a few hospitality tickets for people off here in 2017 (prophet6, GuildfordGlastoGirl and someone else that I can't remember). I can't guarantee I will be able to for next year but will let people know on here if I can.

    Worst Headliner?

    Oh I wish. Unfortunately as I wasn't going I said I had to go somewhere where I knew I wouldn't stumble across any tv footage or media stuff. Ended up in Ibiza due to Mrs pressure and tbf, had a great time apart from not being a house music fan. Ironically, what would've been the Saturday at Glastonbury we walked past a bar that was showing Ed Sheeran playing which is somebody i would have no interest in seeing. So not only did I not go, the one headliner I had no interest in I ended up seeing on telly (if only for a few seconds). Last year's festival was an absolute clusterfuck for so many reasons for me.

    Worst Headliner?

    Unfortunately I didn't get tickets for 2017 but the thought has crossed my mind more than once......

    Worst Headliner?

    Yep, that's exactly the thing. I can only assume I was chatting to someone at the time and I wouldn't have done that if it was great. Honestly, when somebody mentioned the cherry picker the next day I had absolutely no idea what they were on about. That last paragraph may be justifying the fact I obviously wasn't paying attention when maybe I should have been....

    Worst Headliner?

    Usually I am pretty good at not going to see someone that I think is shit but there are times when I can't be arsed/am too w*nkered to leave the safety net of my mates. Because of my personal laziness I have been subjected to the awfulness of Oasis 2004, Kasabian 2014 and Bruce 2009. To counter this, I really wanted to see Kanye as, in my mind, it would be either excellent or a car crash of epic proportions. Unfortunately, it was neither of these. It was boring without a shred of Kanye madness to save it. I watched the entire set and I didn't even know he got in a cherry picker at one point until somebody mentioned it the next day. Maybe all this is entirely subjective as in 2016 I watched LCD with my missus and two mates and they all thought it was awful whereas I thought it was up there with the best sets I've seen in 20 years of going to the festival. Either that or my missus and friends are shit at listening to music.....

    Whats the most memorable event from Glasto 2017?

    Man, this thread destroys me. I hadn't missed a festival since 99 until last year as I just couldn't get tickets in any of the sales. Also, Radiohead are my favourite band so this was a double whammy. I did manage to sort out tickets for a handful of people off of this forum from someone i know that works on site but they were too expensive for me ( i could've afforded them but my missus refused to pay that much-£800-£1000) so ended up in Ibiza instead and avoided the whole thing. As soon as I got home I watched the radiohead set on iPlayer and cried my eyes out because it was so good and I wasn't there to see it. Strangely, they were both tears of sorrow and joy at the same time.

    Site Visits this September 2018

    Go to the (permanent) GFL office at Worthy Farm and ask permission to go onto the site. They are usually more than happy for people to wander around as long as you don't take the piss.

    Shindig Weekender

    I am definitely up for this again for next year. I was chatting to one of the organisers and we were discussing about making it bigger but we both agreed that it would lose its 'je ne sais quoi' if it got too much bigger. Apparently, last year the organisers just about broke even and this year they would've made their first profit, so hopefully they are happy with that and don't go after bigger £'s.

    Shindig Weekender

    To echo Homer and Pilton Digger, it was an excellent weekend. Great music, great people and great weather. Couldn't ask for more.

    Is anyone else going to this? I have been given a free ticket as I know a few people that are involved with it. Excellent line up, especially if you are an old school raver.

    Radiohead Headlining 2017

    My favourite band in my favourite place and I didnt get a ticket this year. Only just grown a pair big enough to watch it on iPlayer and Holy mother of God that was good. Big shit-eating grin at times listening to that but always with a bit of regret that I wasnt there. I saw them in 2003 on the Pyramid but dare I say this was better.

    Weather 2017

    I'm off to Shindig this weekend and all week the forecast has been glorious....until late yesterday when it showeda thunderstorm rolling in early on Saturday. I am happy to take this one for the team if it helps to ensure all you lucky people with tickets get wall to wall sunshine.
