Hi folks

 

My name is Peter from Melbourne Australia. I am coming to Glasto 2020 with my kids. They will be camping with their mates on site and I was thinking of staying in Pikton and commuttingiby car each day. There are some reasonably priced Airbnbs in town.

 

Does anyone have any experience of commuting each day?

 

Cheers

 

Peter

By commuting I reckon you'd miss 90% of the fun at the world's best festival.  I don't know how your kids would feel about having dad around.  I'd discuss camping with them.  Although your tent will be near theirs you probably won't see them much as there is so much to do and people tend to go their separate ways.  If that's not a goer then I'd think about camping solo.  There are lots of solo camping groups on this forum and you'd meet up and make some good mates.

Morning

Like so many others I am a first time poster and very long time lurker. This forum has been an invaluable source of information and your enthusiasm for all things Glastonbury has been a welcome distraction from work over the years! This year will be my wife and I's 11th consecutive festival and our second with a toddler in tow. Over the years our group has fluctuated between 4-15 people, with parents, grandparents, siblings friends etc all getting involved at some point. We are all terrified that one year the ticket gods will forget about us but for now we have this summer to look forward to, so plenty of hours browsing the forums ahead!

Peter, definitely try to stay on site if you can! It can take up to an hour to walk from the main site to a car park or pick up point which would really take its toll everyday. There is a massive variety of camping available - if you really aren't up for a tent (and there are some lovely quiet camping fields) then maybe try for some of the pre-erected on site options? There are lots of solo campers on here that can assist too. As a side note, I have camped with my parents and mother in law at the festival for years and it has always been lovely to see them in the mornings and at the end of the day :)

There’s absolutely no reason why you should commute every day, you will miss so much of the experience. The site is so massive I doubt you would see your kids unless you wanted to.   enjoy!

@Peter Smith I second this.

undoubtedly stay on site, just camp elsewhere - Glastonbury is vast. You mightn't even cross paths all weekend.

Have a look here for extra info:

Hi everyone!

I'm Carl from Liverpool, it's my third trip to Glastonbury in 2020 and I'm very lucky that it's also my first time volunteering for Oxfam!

The sense of relief when I got my Oxfam place was incredible 😃

I'm now really looking forward to seeing a different side to the festival!

Hi all!

Like many here I’m a long time lurker.

I’ve been to the festival multiple times since 2010, I even got engaged to my fiancé back in 2017 near the Glastonbury sign. We’re currently ticketless for this year, so here’s to the resale! 

Looking forward to getting to know you all a little better 😀

Finally made an account after years and years of reading these pages. So hey to everyone, praying G 2020 happens it’s been a dream of mine for a long time. I work at festivals through hotbox events , my cause uk and hotbox events as well as directly for 2000 trees and have managed to Clock up 42 festivals in the past 5 years.
