CV Fields - info & photos

Recommended Posts

I can't find anything, so following the questions earlier on, about what the fields are like, and tickets etc, I've created this post which I hope will help.

Despatch email
Despite the tickets and the CV tickets having different order references, all the paper copies, including the CV field ticket,
and the order emails from See all have the original balance payment reference on. Not only that, but the email below only
mentions 2 tickets, yet I got the CV ticket in the same envelope AND the website said it was still awaiting despatch...

We are writing to confirm the despatch of your recent order.

The order details are as below -

Order reference 44338883

2 tickets (numbers 712113-712114) for GLASTONBURY 2017 on 21st - 25th June 2017


Your Tickets were despatched on Friday 2nd June 2017

They were sent by Secure Delivery postage and should be with you in the next 2-3 days.

If you are not in to sign for them a card will be left advising you to call the postal service to arrange for re-delivery.  
Please note, it is your responsibility to make arrangements with the postal service to arrange for this re-delivery.

Your Royal Mail Tracking Number is XXX and can be tracked by clicking the link below

On the A37, heading South. Where are the usual queues?

Entry on to Pylle Lane

large.02-PylleLaneEntry.jpg.cfdb3ee2ce7cede9c5cc51d116c4e47f.jpg

First gate onto the outer fields

Each field has metal tracks for the route into the camping fields, still on the outer fields, heading to the inspection field

The inspection field. Previously, there have been teams of stewards entering vans to search for glass and removing bottles etc. Here, the inspection was a bloke poking his head through the window and asking 'Got any glass?' Showed our tickets here, and got the CV windscreen sticker.

Entry into the Camping fields.

Shortly after entry (got on in less than 15 minutes after leaving the A37).  This is what you get in the CV East fields.

Top of the E14 field, on the farm track. Each field has a flag to show you which field you're in.

The view in the other direction

large.15-vehicletentmix.jpg.8ee9b1804bc797f2e73795e3ac16663c.jpg

Filling up now, with a mixture of caravans with cars, trailer tents and motorhomes. Vague fire lanes in between each row.

Our camp, showing the gap in between for the tent

Rubbish area, to bag up and leave it here

large.11-BinArea.jpg.d85a3c45762f594987f68dd7f035a769.jpg

Toilets, and waste water disposal in the concrete tank in the ground.

large.14-toilets-wastewater.jpg.f5ee68fedc40d3a11b9cc3fa0d23b9b9.jpg

Water taps, in each field.  There were 2 or 3 in E14, along the top fence.

Looking down the 'Hill of Death' towards Gate C

large.17-DownHill.jpg.a01308cd2335002c4b7e1d981f85135e.jpg

This year, everyone had to walk round the side of the field to Gate C, so here's the side shot of the gradient. Reasonable slope really.

Looking back up the slope, from Gate C

Stopped to admire the view on the first night going in

This is the 'Pass out', that you get each time you leave the festival, when you must hand it back in when you re-enter from the CV fields. You get a new one when you leave the next time. Don't lose it, or face being questioned a long time before being allowed back in.
