I can get entry to the festival through fellow scousers (for a nominal fee) who will get me in but then I don't have a wristband and neither does my wife. If it was just me I wouldn't have a issue with this but I know my wife would not be able to relax.

 

Scousers at Glastonbury are class. They get where water cant! Boiling heat, black North Face long  jacket on and shorts bouncing about on the Beat Hotel sign podium

Are they selling tent spaces with tickets included this year? 

 

They were - but they told me they didn’t have any tickets left.  Offered me tent space if I could source my own ticket.

I’ve pretty much given up this year but seriously considering booking Windinglake early (pre October sale) for next year - given it’s the 50th anniversary I’m convincing myself that I can justify the price!

I'm just not prepared to miss a glasto, ever, forever.

And to top it all off I’ve just had a call from the courier delivering the Mallets Cider Festival Pack I won telling me that they’ve “damaged” it.  Not sure what that means but I’m seriously considering going down to the depot to rescue the code from the 4pack of cider it’s supposed to contain! Not really fussed about the rest of it!

Seeing the "Ketwigs" at Glasto is a strangely homely feeling for me - moved from the Wirral to London 3 years ago so hearing the scouse accent again is great

Mine arrived today. Looking forward to trying on all my gear later while drinking my free cider

Next year I'm just going to get onto the volunteering early, still try for tickets but at least it won't be so stressful. I have thought about going down the hospitality route before but I don't think I could do it, I just think what if it ended up being really muddy and/or rainy and I'm there thinking I could have had a luxury month (or two) in Thailand for the same money. I have done the wristband sneaky thing once and another time used someone else's ticket; both are definitely doable but I don't fancy doing it again now I'm that bit older.

Hi guys - been lurking here all day and think I have finally reached breaking point and willing to shell out for a hospitality package (within reason). Cheapest I can find though is £2.5k pp - tent pitches at Winding Lake are sold out. Anyone know any more realistic options?

Thinking of doing the same myself to be honest. Might get on the volunteer list as early as possible and then try get general admission. I have no problem volunteering but haven't pulled the trigger in previous years - silly me!

I would do a hospitality package but the figures posted previously are outrageous. I'm sure it's probably worth it for what you're getting but I'm quite happy to do general camping for the best part of a week. 

Bunking into the festival though is a definite no for me. Morals aside, coming from Dublin, I couldn't imagine getting refused / caught at the gate and having to make that trip back. Each to their own though!

For £1000 you could buy 285 packs of Mallets and enter the competition 285 times which will greatly improve your chances of winning one of the 5 sets of their tickets. 

id love to see someone trying that at their local tesco :) ...... or the poor driver if it gets home delivered to a block of upstairs flats :)

All these people paying £2k plus, why don’t we just charter a helicopter and abseil in. Got to be cheaper? 

People have paraglided in before!

Just to let you know there is no code on the cider in the festival pack. Also the t-shirt is a large and the hat is a bit small on me. Oh well. Free cider at least.
