I fully understand that and on an individual basis you are right. However, if this becomes more and more common, then the touts will realise they can do the same and will start registering and selling on their tickets for profit. 

Well, if it's any consolation, in the unlikely event that I find someone willing to sell me a ticket, I will do my utmost to ensure they are not a tout. I don't believe anyone who has a ticket and is genuinely unable to go would be scummy enough to try to sell it at a profit, but would simply look to get their money back. So I wouldn't be willing to deal with someone trying to make a profit from it. And ideally they will be at the festival themselves and can meet me at the gate with the ticket in the same way I did with the person I sold a ticket to.

You may be lucky enough to have a ticket this year, but some other year you mightn't and will understand where I'm coming from. You will try all avenues possible.

But congratulations on getting one. I'm sure it will be fantastic as ever. Have a good time!

Long time lurker, first time poster. 2017 will be my 2nd Glastonbury and cannot wait. First time was 2011 the year U2 and QOTSA played. Been reading everyone's posts and bought a tent after recommendations posted here. In total there's about 12 of us travelling over from Ireland.

Music addict from the Netherlands over here! Long time lurker, but trying to get more active on the forums and experience the real glasto spirit. 2017 will be my third Glastonbury, have been there in 2014 and 2015, had to miss out on the 2016 edition and really can not wait until next week!

Hello! I will be a Glasto first timer at the ripe old age of 42! I'm also working at the festival so I get to go down on Tuesday. Can't wait!

Hello!

I have been lurcking around these forums for about 7 or 8 years (maybe more), used to have a login and very occasionally contributed very unintresting posts. Been to most the big UK festivals, and I am finally doing Glasto this year (2017)!

Rejoined becuase I am overly excited about Glasto and I am currently avoiding some work I am meant to be doing.

Thanks!
Nelson

Like @deepkittycaz I'm a first timer at the ripe old age of 42.

I was was worried about how I'd do, as I'm not good with crowds. So I'm very glad to report that I thoroughly enjoyed myself! Granted I had it on easy mode compared to previous years... but it was just what I needed to get me hooked.

Hope to be back in 2019!

Hi everyone . Newbie here on the forums , but a veteran of many festivals and events . I've been to Glasto 6 times over the course of 20 odd years as a performer , attendee and event professional. Still my favourite festival ever to work or to visit and one of the few events these days that still gets the butterflies really going . Best moment undoubtedly was seeing Rage Against The Machine in 94 .

oh .. if anyone finds the keys for a 1991 Ford Escort opposite the Pyramid stage .....then you're a better man than I was that dark rainy night lol

With a couple of bands on very minor stages / tents around the early 90's . It was a great experience no question , but sadly nothing that changed music for the better heh.

it pays for itself if you've got a payment subscription set-up. The easiest way to find out is to let it run and see what happens.

(I've recently changed a setting so that it's not possible for anyone to buy it twice, as allowing that caused a few issues).
