new here? introduce yourself

Recommended Posts

Hello! Long time lurker, signed up a while back but never posted - thought it's about time I did!! This will be my 3rd Glastonbury (2014 and 2016 being the others). I can't wait!!

I have these forums to thank for in helping me discover some of my now favourite artists. Without you I may never have discovered the wonders of the National, Arcade Fire, Sigur Rós, the War on Drugs, Beck, Radiohead and PSB (the good ones). In other words, THANK YOU!

Hey all,


Been reading the site for aaaaaaages but finally registered

I am a band manager/promoter

Manage one of the bands on the John Peel tent this year so you can imagine I'm currently managing some very excited musicians right now :)

Afternoon,

another long time lurker, de-lurking. Read the Efest Glasto forum alot, especially around Tday so thought is was about time I joined up. This year will be my 6th Glastonbury (first 2005) and though I'm trying not to get carried away, excitement is creeping in especially as I've just had the tickets despatched email. 

Back to the weather forecast, state of the ground and piles topics in anticipation...

Hey 

Another lurker here that has taken way too long to join up. 

Followed the forum for the last 2 years in the attempt to get tickets, and finally managed to this year. So it will be my first time :) also going with 2 other newbies, so feeling totally lost and excited at the same time! 

We've worked out the main points (parking, where to camp etc) but still trying to decide how to get our stuff into the site, Wheel barrow/sack trucks etc have all been mentioned, but as 3 relatively small females that could end in disaster if there is mud like last year!

So basically any pointers or tips from past attending Glasto goers would be appreciated! Fingers crossed for sun! x

Been lurking for a while, but the anticipation is just too high now that we are 2 weeks away. Seeing that I am spending most of my (should be) working day on here and browsing for other Glasto related news, I felt as though I should just jump in!

2nd time for me this year, 2015 being the other. Would bite your hand off for similar weather!

Replying to a few forums might as well formally say Hello after long time lurking and finally started posting! :) 

 

1st Glasto last year and wasn't going to go this year as none of my home friends were keen but I couldn't resist. After friends I made last year said I could camp with them I tried in the resale which I was successful with and sooo excited to get back.

Hi everyone,
 
I've been three times and I'm desperate to go this year again, but don't have a ticket. Seeing Radiohead at Glastonbury is my dream gig. Was there in 2011 when they did the secret gig up in The Park. A rumour went round the site on the Friday morning that they were the secret act. In my excitement at getting to see them at Glastonbury I let it get the better of me and consumed too much of everything, lost track of time and by the time they were set to play The Park stage had filled up and they had to close it off. So I missed the gig. Devastated. 
 
I'm now looking to buy two tickets from anyone who can't use theirs. I missed out on the first sale and re-sale but I am absolutely desperate to go and am willing to take a risk of buying a couple of tickets and taking my chances getting in. If you or anyone you know has tickets, please PM me and we can try to figure out a way of making the exchange. You would make me the happiest man in the world.
 
Thanks.

Just be aware mate, I'm not sure how open people will be to giving a randomer that's never posted on this site before access to tickets, considering the current security climate etc and not going through the proper channels.

Yeah, understood. Thought it might be worth a try in my desperation. I'm trying in the hope that any ticket seller would be pretty certain I'm not a security threat if they dealt with me directly.

You don't need to ask in every thread. We can easily see and ignore your post it in just one thread, thank you. 

That's great to know. Thanks so much for your help and understanding with this. You're a real gem and Glastonbury will be so much better for having you there. Go Glastonbury spirit!

To be fair, you've posted the exact same thing in nearly every thread, instead of just one where everyone can see it. 

And when did enabling touts count as Glastonbury spirit? Cos the more people that get in on other people's tickets, the more the touts may start to think it's worth the risk again. 

This isn't enabling touts. This is helping someone out who has paid a lot of money to go and suddenly finds they can't. I've been in the same position myself where I've had a spare ticket. After arranging to meet the person online, I met the person at the gate, explained the situation to the security guards and they thankfully understood there was nothing underhand happening. I was simply helping someone who was desperate to go and they were helping me avoid losing quite a bit of cash. They were extremely happy and grateful. There was no security issue. Everyone won. Very much in the spirit of Glastonbury.

Anyway, touts aren't stupid enough to commit thousands of pounds on tickets that have such extreme security measures attached to them. They're out to make easy money and would never run the risk.

And I'm sorry if my repeated message has upset you so much. I understand how these things can really boil the blood of even the coolest heads.
