What have you done today to get ready for Glastonbury 2019?

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I drew a plan of my festival outfit and discussed how to go about creating it with my girlfriend who has kindly agreed to take up the task as I am not good at sewing! Trip to the arts and crafts shop planned for next Sunday to source material :)

After spending a weekend in London we picked a car at Gatwick yesterday and drove  down to a camping show as Camping world in Horsham .... loads of tents to look around. The service there was incredible and I was so impressed. Anyway tnet purchased and know what bed/inflatable mattress I want, and just have to save up some more pennies for them :-)

Excited for the tent now to arrive this week :-)

Don’t know if I am alone in doing this but every month or so I check the see ticket tracker to ensure my order is still OK!  Obsessive, insecure, paranoid or just totally in love with the glastonbury experience?

These things are in no way mutually exclusive.

Feel a bit panicky reading this thread. Haven’t really done any actual planning yet, just obsessively read this forum. 

Do I need to start wearing my wellies round the house soon?

It is very exciting! It's the only thing I really need to buy this year really, boots in excellent condition and sleeping bag/bed etc. Looking at this for me and my brother. Crucial ground sheet which folds up at the entrance!

wow brilliant price as well :-)

We need tent and beds - have sleeping bag and a trolley but havemt; camped for 10 years (always taken a van) and we need to spend longer than a week in it this year (working for the two weeks pre festival) so tent and beds are impirtant to be comforable this year (3.5 weeks living on site :-)

New wellies reduced from Haskins  ( so guaranteed sunshine). 

Also bought a new sleeping bag - so after 16 Glastonbury’s ( 1997 to 2017) and 3 Latitudes my old one is retiring! I never did like the mummy shape so have gone for a square end this time😀

my festival list consists of stuff being piled in my living room about a month before .... Im not one for lists but the one above is certainly thorough I would say :) .... ive been waiting for 2 items to complete my fancy dress for the year and they haven't turned up ... fortunately I started preparing shortly after the last festival so still have plenty of time ... the companys are going to resend them :)

Got my exercise bike working. Well I say working I have got my fat arse on it. I had a stroke a number of years back and really struggle walking distances (and I weigh 20 odd stone) so really trying to feel the burn in time for June.

Hope your stuff comes soon

Bungee cords can be a mare. Ratchet straps or industrial cling film work well.
