Hello, I'm probably one of the oldest people on these boards (66 no less!). I first went to Glastonbury in 2000, the last year before The Fence and was enthralled by the whole place. More recently I discovered the delights of the Lost Horizon sauna venue up in the Tipi Field. When my father died and left me a tidy amount I was able to give some of it to help support Lost Horizon. In return they invited me to join their crew. So now I spend ten days on site, more often than not naked, and it's the highlight of my summer. For many years I've also been part of the VloodyCloody gang and we meet up at festivals as old friends.

I like the cut of your gib

 

 

welcome

I decided to dive right in already, but here's a late intro.

Been lurking these forums since trying for Glasto 2016 tickets, missed out completely and didn't read much more. Tried again in 2017 and was much more successful! Got a coach ticket on Thursday (which according to some, losing one day at the festival was like losing a child). Had an amazing time and prepared soooo bloody much by reading a lot more threads on here, started recognizing a few power users. 

In the Fallow year, I popped in and out to fill the void in my heart and see how everyone else was coping. And now I've managed to get tickets for 2019 and decided to make an account to be part of the conversation.

My writing is really bad, I was born in London but moved at a young age so I speak fluently but expressing myself in writing can be a struggle. I write how I think, a bit messy. Let me know if something doesn't make sense or I wrote three paragraphs without a full stop or making any sense at all!

Welcome aboard and congratulations on getting a ticket. 

That all made perfect sense to me, indeed better than plenty of other posters here ;)

Hi everyone!

I'm currently studying event management at university and have a keen interest in festival sustainability. 
I'm now in the process of writing my dissertation and it would be great if other keen festival go-ers could answer a couple of questions to help me with my findings.

My dissertation is about the sustainability around festivals from an attendees perspective so if you enjoy attending music festivals and the reusable/sustainable elements of these events moving forward please go into as much detail as possible 1f642.png:)

THANK YOU
Every answer is making a poor stressed little student a bit less stressed

Hi all.

 

I'm going to Glastonbury this year and I heard about this place off a friend so I thought I'd give it a go! This will be my first Glastonbury, what should I expect? What parts of this forum would you recommend to a newbie?

Lurking since possibly 2011? (I remember hearing of the secret Green Day set at Reading 2012 from these boards at the time) but finally decided to register, because I just absolutely love spouting my own bollocks opinions.

Had always wanted to go to Glastonbury since 2012, finally managed to get my friends onboard in 2017, best festival we'd ever done, done various Readings/Sonispheres/Bestivals over the years as well.

Hello,  thought I would drop a post to say hello.

I have got tickets for next years Glastonbury,  only the second time I have been (first time was 1994 so will be nice to actually see the pyramid stage).  will be interesting to see how much the festival has changed over the last 25 years. 

I go to 5 or 6 festivals a year so will be nice to give a comparison.

Hello Bennykill,

Welcome to the forum, and wish you a happy Glastonbury. Believe me it'll be a big change from 1994.

Hello guy,

I believe that my message inbox was full. I have now deleted all previous messages, so you should now be able to send a PM.

I hope that you are well, and that your grand daughter is too.

All the best.  :)

Are you feeling as croky as me

Or more like an otter, a beaver’s family

Hello my name is Vidan Poststamp, it sounds funny but it's true

I'm looking forward to glasto camp, ing how about you

Straight outta the Netherlands, been three years in a row

Best year was 2014, when kasabian closed the show

Had a fallow year before the fallow year, for that I still punch myself in the nose

but I was due to my partner in crime, the ridiculous henneaux

But this year we're coming again, I hope you'll all be there, lost or found

be there or be square, stick my dick in a circle but not fucking a round

May I congratulate you on getting the golden tickets, you are in for one hell of a show. Unfortunately I didn't in the general sale but shall maybe try in April, maybe not. Been many times and always happy for others to enjoy for the first time, every cloud and all that. My misfortune is somebody else's fortune. 

Shall reserve my right to be extremely jealous. :thumbsu:

Not new but a returnee. Have posted sparingly over the years and snuck in on three efest meets, I find it is too easy to spend way too much time on various fora here and there so deliberately ration myself “out of season”. But now we are on the downhill run to the great day, so dipping a tentative toe into the efest waters once more!

I'd suggest head first is more appropriate. 😁

Hey all, thought I'd finally join here now I'm doing my first Glastonbury this year! Always half assed trying to get tickets in the past, came in with a proper strategy and a group of 6 this year and it paid off!

 Been a while since I've been to a festival, did V 2010 and then Reading 2011-2013, and was a regular on the Reading forums before they shut down (RIP). Interested to see how I get on now I'm a bit older (24 but feel 42)! 😂

Haha thanks! There are some real wonders in Simpsons shitposting fb groups

I had to unfollow one cause it was just taking over my timeline (as most of these groups tend to do) might be time to dip my toe back in the water though.

Pretty much my entire timeline is a mix of Simpsons, It’s always sunny, twin peaks and physics memes. All I use fb for nowadays really
