For the first time I do find myself debating some dressup shenanigans for Glastonbury...

Don't do it, Pike!

Thanks guys! A better response from my friends who have all just laughed at it! Tbf for £20 you can't really go wrong

I love it! For that price who cares and why would your pals laugh at you? You need a better sort. Come to efests meet wearing it and we'll all coo over you. :D

Started my Glastonbury fitness regime today by going to the gym. Going to try and get in as good a shape as possible for my trip to the farm.

I also created a Spotify playlist of as much music from acts I want to see as possible. Hours and hours of music. Will be on shuffle constantly in the lead up.

Triple checked that my balance is paid

Yes did that as well, even asked for the confirmation e mail resend! Printed it off, printed off my bank statement showing the payment.

Just set up the tent we managed to get for £120 off Facebook marketplace - it’s still retailing for £350 brand new - and it’s a beauty.

79 days to go.

Paid my balance and started putting together a list of what I will need, now it is time to start getting myself into gear. Not even been thinking about it until today.

Bought a self-inflating mat from Lidl. I've used my daughter's in the past but she wants to use it this year as she's coming - the cheek of it!  Checked out what cans they sell in there but haven't decided how I'm transporting booze yet as we're going by coach. Any ideas?

Would have thought the coop is going to be a popular option for booze amongst coach travellers ?

Anyone else checked their balance payment email, bank transactions and see tickets order tracker several times in the last 24 hours *just to make sure*?

Brilliant! Why didn't I think of that? I assume it will be pricier onsite but don't mind much if makes life easier.

Properly started working out how we plan to get there today (by air or by sea). Its either fly in to Bristol and get the National Express to the festival or sail to Fishguard and drive.

On that, are any routes to the festival by car better than others? We’ve got a hotel provisionally booked in Bristol but could just as easily stay in Taunton or Yeovill if the traffic to the festival is better from the south?

Just fly to bristol and get the bus mate. Its the easiest way, weve done it for the last 2 festivals

Yeah, 2 of us flew in for 2017 and it was pretty handy. That said, another 2 drove and took our tent so we didn’t have to bring it on the plane. There’s 6 of us this year though and it’s the getting the tents on to the plane that we’re trying to work out.

Can you not just check in the tent and chip in the cost between ya. Either one or two tents between 6 of you? Keep the weight under I think around 15-20kg.

We’ve all got 2/3 person tents from going to various other festivals over the years so we’d really have to buy another one or two large tents (which we don’t really want to do as it’s pretty wasteful) or carry across 3 or 4 of our own tents.

We don’t mind paying extra for luggage on the plane but we’re also thinking that there’s a lot more freedom driving across. One big plus would be being able to bring a trolley with us which we’d probably have to forfeit if we fly and then get the coach.

Lot more freedom with a car but i would fancy driving meself when I was feeling ropey as fuck after 5 days. Although a night booked in Bristol would be just the tonic. Love staying the night there, getting a nice long shower then some grub down by the waterfront in the sunshine. First proper glass with some chilled wine. Magic.

Haha - way ahead of you. Whatever about getting over there, we've the way back sown up - a nice hotel in Bristol already booked for the Monday. Reintegration into society is a slow and steady process!

Is it one you've stayed in before? There's two with similar names and location. One is lovely and the other one is shit.
