Well, I've spent enough time lurking on here in the last three weeks that I figured I'd may as well sign up.

As the username suggests I hail from the glorious South West but now live in Liverpool. First Glastonbury was in 2013, then was lucky enough to be there again in '16 and '17 and I cannot wait for 2020.

Each time I've been it's been as part of a group but a great deal of my Glasto time is spent on my own as my tastes sometimes differ to those of my friends, and I am not one to kowtow to peer pressure ūüėĀ

I'm trying not to have too many expectations about 2020. Having missed out on tickets in the past I'm truly appreciating that this may well be the last Glastonbury I'm ever lucky enough to attend, and I plan to make the best of it - whatever that means. Maybe i'll meet some of you along the way ūüôā

Serial forum lurker making my transition to an account. Looking forward to Carl Cox laying it down at Glade this year. Will be visiting the site a few times in the run up to June to get a feel for the state of the ground. Photos to follow.

Hello!

Long time lurker, but I was a member yonks ago... circumstances dictated that I went way for a long old time.

Finally decided to come back, albeit with some reservations.

Long story short... used to be part of the festival scene as a musician, compere, stage manager etc.  Lost it pretty badly and fucked off.

I've been here almost every day, I feel like I know a bunch of you pretty well, but it's taken a bit of courage to re-engage.

Can't wait to get stuck in!

Hopefully going to be at Glastonbury 2020 with a really bizarre musical act.

Best,

Minilla xx

Thanks!

I know you're not scary. Sketchy, weird, contrary, odd... but as welcoming as ever eh?

I'm the fraidy-cat.  Even with thousands of miles between us all and the anonymity of the Internet, it's gonna be little steps.

A little background... 

Used to be in a few Westcountry based bands, over the years played the bandstand, Avalon Cafe, green fields, backstage bars

Booze and drugs got the better of me and the rest of the gang so we went separate ways.  Finally ready to come back but bricking it! 

Found the ideal other half to my long thought of two-man act.  If the booking comes through, come and spot us eh?

Yeah, been around the block a bit!  Need to get my humble on pretty severely, but hoping that bygones will do the thing that they do!

Hopefully over the coming weeks and months I'll get really involved. Lots of experiences and a fair bit of inside knowledge I'd like to share, but in a constructive way, not a nobbish way if you know what I mean!  

Love the hat by the way.

Like many, long time lurker here.  I'm a kiwi, back living in NZ after 3 years in London and a visit to Glasto 16 and 17.  Tickets secured for 2020 and looking forward to the trip back to that side of the world.

Welcome fellow Kiwi! Hope you don't get too addicted now you've signed up (like me).

What are you looking at doing for camping options? We don't really want to buy a tent for a one-off and are doing other travel so don't want to carry one around Europe.

Welcome, you will love the festival. My daughter and kids emigrated to your country a few years back and loves the life . She’s in hobsonville , Auckland. We visited last year and heading back out sometime next year, (as long as it doesn’t clash with Glastonbury)!

Shameless plug time!

Mrs Moth has a residency at Little Creatures Brewery in Hobsonville every 2nd Sunday 2pm til 4pm. Send the family¬†along ūüėĀ

Next one is not ‚Äėtil 24th Nov though as we have a wedding to go to, interrupting the pattern.

I left my tent (and gumboots wellies) with some friends in London, in the hope I'd get tickets.

Hello everyone, 

Long time lurker... etc etc! This forum has been so helpful in the past, and seems so friendly that I decided I should just join up rather than hang around anonymously.

I have been lucky enough to go to three Glastonburys, but our booking group missed out this year. We missed out last year actually, but two of us were lucky enough to get coach tickets in the April resale so that is the hope I am hanging on to this year! 

You will probably see me on the Resale and Volunteering threads!

Hi everyone,

I've been following this forum since 2011, the year of my first Glastonbury when I was 19. 2020 will be my 8th, been so lucky with tickets over the years - some coach, some not, some resale, some not. Enjoy the festival more with every visit!

Love the forum too, it really does add to the experience, check it all the time!

Hoping to attend my first efestivals meet next year! :)

Hi everyone,

Hungarian here. Like so many others I've been lurking this forum for a few years now. I've never been to Glastonbury (despite ten years of eagerness), so after our wedding, me and my wife decided it's time to give it a try, we failed miserably of course. :D Anyway, not giving up.

These forums helped us a lot before TD, right when I became obsessed with the tickets, and your mentality helped us not loosing hope after failing.

Hi. Just read this, will mention to my daughter about the Sunday gig. Last time we visited, little creatures was being set up and was a few weeks away from opening. We are back in hobsonville next year. Given that there’s no pubs in that area the brewery at the harbour will be well frequented by us, my daughters house in just up the road from the brewery. 

Its a small world!
