So whose getting ready for next year?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys just seeing who is already prepping for next year? Had tent out over weekend to give it it's yearly once over and airing before being stowed away for another year and got me thinking about my packing list etc for 2019. A bit premature I know but always good bargains to be had this time of year with shops flogging off camping stuff. Plus also helps with the withdraw symptoms of not being there this year😢

Did it solo last year and really enjoyed it more then I expected.The big thing I enjoyed was not compromising as selfish as that sounds it was nice doing whatever I wanted whenever I wanted. Just make sure your friendly and I'm sure you're make plenty of mates

Yep big advantages to going on your own (and to going with a bunch of mates of course), and as Stu2H says, you're never short of someone to talk to if you can just say hello.

Mentally Ive been preparing since the last one ended. Physically I'm always on the look out for little things thay could make my Glasto life better. Since the last one ended Ive acquired a couple of metallic colored body suits for this year.

My Glastonbury days are over now, so I'll not be doing any preparing. I'll be trying to get an efester his tickets on T Day though, so will get caught up in that Glastonbury excitement. I've managed to do 20+ Glastonbury's, so it was a fair innings.

Sorry to hear that Yog.

Hope it's on your own terms rather than anything else.

Volunteering for Festival Medical Services I know I am going , just panicking that I can't get 2 tickets for my best friends for their 50th, to celebrate at the farm with them.

This. Preparing anything just feels like tempting fate

Not thinking about it just yet lets get the stress, fear and excitement of ticket day out the way first! B)

I suppose you can see the acts you want. 

Im hoping to try the ticket and coach package. Failing that the general release. Double the chance?

I've put out the feelers to friends and family, see who's going and then make a plan from there on. Main ticket sale again in October, isn't it? I don't want to tempt fate, but I'm feeling lucky :D

Hello JoeyT,

Thank you. Yes, it is on my own terms. I've done a load of Glastonbury's both in good weather and in the worst of weather, and they've all, without exception, been great. However, the place is too large and frenetic for me to handle now. I'm seriously slowing up nowadays. I went to Bestival recently, and even found getting around that a trudge - mind you, the scorching heat didn't help. So, if I'm to go festivals in the future they're going to have to be smaller, cheaper ones, and not very far away from me either. 

Wishing you all the best on T Day. :)

Isn't there a tiny temptation to try on ticket day??

So I was getting all excited thinking all the same things you all are saying, until I work out today, a mate's wedding is the same weekend and my heart sinks...gutted!

Must be developing OCD as I calculate things like percentage time from leaving Glastonbury 2017 to (hopefully) arriving 2019.

....it's on 56.8% today.

Only prep that has been done is agree our travel plan for our group (Trains from Scotland and free shuttle) so just looking out a "does the job" hotel option for 1 night stay near Paddington to get the trains and shuttle on the Wednesday. Of course all depending on that crucial ticket purchases success

I've just booked the time off just in case. My holidays run from July 1 to June 30 so I won't have any days off between Christmas and (hopefully) Glastonbury so that'll be a long slog. But a nice consolation is the festival at the end of it.

Went for a walk around the site last weekend and that always gets the excitement (and nerves) flowing. Even bumped into the big man himself, driving around in his famous burgundy Land Rover.

It'll soon be time for our lot to compile the ticket spreadsheet that has a really good success record ahead of the most tense hour of my life in early October and some of us will also be at Pilton Party at the end of the month. Maybe I'll make an underground bunker whilst I'm there, see if I can sit it out for ten months...
