Anyone think they may lower the amount of tickets you can get in one go this year? (they made it 4 per person for Pilton Party for instance)

 

I reckon a few people panicked reading that!

Don't think I've ever tried for 6, last few years has just been 2.

Also, has it ever been as high as 8 or am I just imagining that?

I'm 99% sure it's never been more than 6.

It would be a disadvantage to all of us who plan to maximise our chances of obtaining tickets by working together if they reduced to 4 per application. We had 6 groups of 6 last time, so if the numbers remain as is we would need 9 successes rather than the 6 last time. Considerably less likely to achieve 100% success!

Just did a quick google and it looks as though you could get 8 per transaction for the 2013 festival but this changed to 6 in 2014 by the looks of things and has remained so ever since.

I have just booked the time off work for next year. Might be tempting fate but I will go away if I don't manage to get tickets.

Paranoia starting to creep in....

Just checked my registration number, no idea why, but it was nice to receive an email list of registrations valid to buy tickets when they go on sale 😎

https://glastonbury.seetickets.com/registration/lookup

Of course, it also allows you to edit if you need to.

Things are getting scary now...access to/from the site is impossible due to the moat of water...electricity and sanitation is all out of order and campers have started to form tribes. An attempt by the Caravanners to steal our gin failed when we deciphered their new language and we kidnapped one of their children in return.  Weapons are scarce although we've engineered an effective bazooka from a bottle of Ruddles Pale Ale, a disposable barbecue and some half frozen sausages. I may never see you all again...good luck to you all x

Does anyone else fear their luck is going to run out when it comes to getting a ticket? After failing for years, I have struck lucky on the last 3 occasions. I feel more nervous this year than at any time previously. 

What's the most consecutive times peeps have gone without missing out?

I'm 6 for 6 so far, so I know it's coming.  Dreading it as always, but having done BDs this year I do feel slightly more like I could cope by going to a couple of smaller fests.  Ask me if I feel the same way when I've missed out...

Having endured the secret resale thread (there was no sale in the end) I feel I've paid my dues & the ticket gods owe me one. We still have the secret resales surviver whatsapp group open & we're going to team up this year. safety in numbers & all that 😀

I've made it to every Glastonbury I've wanted to go to, but I've not personally got my own ticket since the 2011 festival.  I did get through for someone else in the coach resales a couple of years ago, but that's it.

I reckon I'm owed getting through many times for many people this year!

Touchwood I've managed to get tickets every time I've tried (although as told before not made it to the farm every time I've got tickets). Last year was the first I'd tried in a while.

If I don't get them for next year, I'll be beyond words! I have a few people trying for me who aren't even going!
