True. I know people who do it so was going to try and get on the morning shift which is 6 hours covering 5 days but I just can't bring myself to do it. If I miss out I do, I can't moan at the run I've had.

The 6-12 it'll be a hard push. Not my first choice tbh would rather have a ticket, I've done 3 years in a row and live in Street so in the local catchment area but my luck ran out this year!

I think with working, the problem for me is that if you are going with someone, you aren't guaranteed to be on the same shifts. So you could go and never see each other and effectively be there by yourself. That and I don't think going straight from the Block 9 to pick up litter, totally out my trumpet, would be that fun 😅

So what is the likely resale date? Usually it's a couple of weeks after the balance deadline closes, which would make Sunday 21st likely. However that's Easter Sunday which makes it unlikely as I'm pretty sure See would need to pay staff extra to cover it (plus it's a religious holiday), which means they'll either have to go earlier on the 14th (which may be too soon) or later on Sunday 28th.

Hopefully not the 28th as it's the London Marathon that day and I need to try for folks.

Apologies if this has already been covered, there's 49 pages to sift through!

Sorry .... I think it is.

As you say, it's usually towards the end of April. This year Easter is late (Sunday 21st), so it won't be that weekend. 

Probably coach on Thursday 25th & Main on Sunday 28th April.

I booked a holiday to the Philippines and on resale date i'll be in Coron (an island with extremely limited wifi)

I feel sad knowing I'm leaving the fate of Glastonbury tickets to friends.. But I needed to go over Easter else i wouldn't of had enough annual leave :(

What will be will be i guess. I'm going to buy a 4G simcard and hope the fact I'm literally in the arse end of nowhere is in my favour?

The 21st would be my birthday, so that would either make or ruin my day! Hoping the 28th as it might make it that little bit less busy we all need:)

I certainly hope it isnt the 28th.... I am in Turkey and means I would have to take my laptop and find a decent wifi connection to VPN through my work PC. Pleeeeease be the 21st! But as its been said... that is Easter Sunday.... FML!! 

The only saving grace is that there is precedence for a quick resale... in 2016 the deadline was 7th and they resale was 14th Coach/17th General. But have a bad feeling its gonna be 28th for General resale.

28th would not be good for the resale. I’ll be hiking in Scotland, and I’ll be waking up in the Rowardennan YHA. I hope their WiFi is up to muster.

Probably been discussed before but what do people think the chances are of bagging a ticket in the resale compared to the initial sale? Still a large amount of our group without tickets who have become incredulous at the prospect of being on the farm and are running out of time to book the needed annual leave off...

Surely the higher upfront costs in the resale will unfortunately exclude a few people, and also mean that a large amount of people who get through will only be trying for single tickets over multiple?

Admittedly we're still trying to work out a way of paying if an individual gets through who doesn't have the minimum £1,000 in the bank. Quick phone call to an individual who does have the funds doesn't seem the most efficient of ways...

I don’t think you’ll need to bother with the VPN back to the UK? No reason why you couldn’t buy straight from Turkey. The website is pretty simple so bandwidth shouldn’t be an issue.

I bought tickets for the Massive Attack gig in Bristol from my iPhone on a Turkish beach and they sold out in minutes. The 4G signal is everywhere. It may be simpler than you think!

A suggestion: doesn’t matter whoever in the group gets through, they put as lead booker the one you have all agreed on, who has the funds, and use their card details. You can all pre-pay that person, or wait until successful and transfer the funds then.

Only problem is the group is slightly extended with a few people only knowing one another through mutual friends and therefore may be a bit hesitant about giving their details out. For me personally its a risk id be willing to take to get to Glastonbury, just not sure about a few others.

But yeh, this does seem like the most logical and reasonable way to deal with it. Luckily we've got 3 months to try and get this message across :)

I've always been lucky in the general sale but I've got tickets three times in resales for other people (out of three times of trying) - twice for people off here. It is a greatly reduced number on sale though.

I think if funds are an issue, the only way is to use just one person's details. You could also preload a card (prepayment) but then if you don't get tickets, the money might be locked on it.

If you are going to be available on the resale morning and could help then that would be great.

I will be; I've got a few I'm going in for on here, who I've spoken to already. I'll be in looking to see who else to help, when I've (hopefully) sorted them.

Fingers crossed, all who need them will get sorted.

Thanks for the info. That's longer than I thought, expected it to be only a couple of minutes.

I use my works PC on work connection (same provider and business connection as see tickets). It's not let me down yet. So its not about buying from turkey :)

I've just applied for water-aid volunteering. Now the chances of me missing the resale are likely, I'll take what I can get!

I’m pinning the majority of my hopes on the resale.

Failing that I’ll join the scramble for VIP tickets assuming they haven’t rocketed to eye watering levels.

If both of those ideas turn out to be fruitless I’ll tell the lovely Mrs B I got tickets anyway and just go on a 5 day bender ! 

Mums the word...😀

They start from about 2/2.5k and can go up to whatever number you like! 

I saw one company offering an Airstream all singing and dancing for the knock down price of 15k!! 

I checked the date of the email and it wasn’t April 1st.. I deleted it rather quickly..
