They'll need to rip it up and start again to get it to fit precisely.

He was great on the Park Stage in 2008, it was really surprisingly emotional, we hadn’t specifically planned to see it, it was on our Clashfinder, but a lot of stuff gets that far!

Yes, I'm certain there was something in the terms and conditions when signing up for GFEL volunteering about not sharing images on social media in particular before the festival opens. And rightly so. I remember seeing IICON for the first time on the Wednesday last time round. Blew me away, totally unexpected.

I volunteered in 2019 and saw IICON in my Tuesday afternoon wander about before the gates opened. I took pics on my phone but I said to the Whatsapp Glastonbury group I'm in, I have pics of something new but can not share as I think its best you see it in person tomorrow...which they thought was best and thanked me for not sharing!

Perfect etiquette .

There's going to be loads of new stuff to see this year, stages, areas, layouts. Can't wait.

Its also just a representation of having reliable tech at our fingertips now...its the same with other things I go to...sometimes if things have changed at football (could be anything) usually someone will have a picture of it on Twitter pretty quickly!

Just a question on this to everybody.

Do we want photos of new stuff or do want to discover it for ourselves when we get there?

Personally, I'd rather wait until I arrive and I know the festival have asked people not to post photos.

When did the festival ask people not to take / post photos? I love seeing them, anyone who doesn’t should probably avoid this thread and just watch the webcam.

For staff / others who have access before gates open? It's been requested for as long as I'm aware of. Most festivals in the country have some version of that in their staff handbook or equivalent guidance - it's just that it's not always easy to police especially at Glastonbury where there's probably 30,000 plus people on site by Tuesday.

I'll give it about a day before GFL ask Neil to remove the thread. 

Everyone that's on site between now and Weds 22nd June will have agreed to not share photos of the build.   Once the site is secure from walkers and explorers, there shouldn't be any site photos and they will come down hard on it. 

So, just enjoy the webcam! 

 

There are vantage points around Pilton where anyone with a good telephoto lens can still get photos of any top secret surprises if they are that way inclined, GFL would have no right to have those removed.

Once the fest is up and the site is locked down they will be monitoring social media for leaks.

At the moment, when you can still walk through it's impossible to do anything about it.  Once it's crew only, it's a different matter.

From what I remember the last couple of years they have asked people not to post photos of new / updated areas online.  

I kinda agree with that though.  As much as I love seeing the site come together on the webcam and the photos from peoples runs, certain bits I like to keep a surprise for when I get there - especially with anything new.

It would be quite clear if the photos have been taken from within the fenced off site or from Pilton with a massive lens, wouldn't it?

Yes, my point is that if people really what to see what’s going on GFL can’t stop it.

The festival do have a social media policy for people working on site FYI. Assuming it's part of a larger handbook.

anyone arriving on site early is asked to not post anything on social media to not spoil the surprises 🙂

I seem to have caused a bit of a debate 🤣 

Sorry, I wasn't having a go at you, I was just asking a question because, personally, I'd rather not have too many spoilers but thought not not everybody would feel the same. 

However it does seem that you boyfriend will have signed up not to post photos.
