Definitely 4 in the main, not sure about coach 100% but I think 2 is right, yeah.

Cool, thought it was 4 in the main, yeah pretty sure 2 in the coach

Sheeeet - how many has everyone gotta try for?

We need 5 (shit number with a 4 and a 2 on offer). I know some pals of my pals who are trying for 3

5 for us as well, a proper shit number. In there are 2 couples but the individual hasn’t been for a few years as she had a baby so it seems only fair she’s included!

Whats the score with coach tickets, is it a minefield selecting times, locations and dates?

Yes, can be very difficult. If you can get the location you need, just choose the first time available on the drop-down list. By the time you’ve looked through and considered some could be gone.

I’ve used this tactic for the past 4 or so Festival’s and I’ve been successful every time (incl this year on the Thursday)

I will go from anywhere at any time.

I’ve said this before too. We live near Bristol, so we’ve said radius up to Birmingham. We’d probably go from further if push came to shove though.

Tip with the coaches - if you get the through and they’re all sold out, keep clicking the locations occasionally - I’ve found a few tend to come back (gone again in a blink)

You can do the bars with Shelter without having to do any other festivals. People who did Glastonbury last time out have priority but in my experience there were plenty of places. I worked for them in 2017 and they’d actually had to get some agency bar staff and pay them because they didn’t get enough volunteers.

With Oxfam, those who did 2 festivals the previous year get priority, but there are spaces for people who just want to sign up for Glastonbury. Competition is almost ticket day level of fierce if you are non-priority, but you either get in or you don’t - you don’t have to do another one.

Both offer staff camping with a free meal for every shift you do, better loos, showers, somewhere to charge your phone, early access to the site and access to crew bars that aren’t open to the public.

Overall, it’s a different festival when you volunteer, because you can’t spend the whole time hammered, but it has its compensations.

I think it’s actually only Festaff who insist on you doing another festival.

What about wateraid? I know someone who would be quite happy cleaning the toilets if it meant getting to the festival

I’ve no idea, but water aid opens the earliest and is open now.

Water aid does the water points and some other stuff as well as loo cleaning.

They are heroes to be fair!

I’ve told him about water aid. He’s a first timer at volunteering so that might go against him.

Just had a look at that and set up a reminder. 3 x 8 hour shifts between Wednesday and Sunday. Absolutely worth doing!

100% if I ever fail at getting tickets in the main sale I’m just going to volunteer and not bother with resale torture. Oxfam is hard to get though. They give priority to people who’ve done it before and after that there’s not many places left I think.

Yeah it really is, I never know the best way to go about it, like do i try London first as there are more options or somewhere more random where less will try.. Ideally I want from Birmingham on the Wednesday, which I managed to get in a resale before, but its just luck, I have said anywhere south of Birmingham..have different people looking at different locations i suppose

Yeah, just multiple people trying for whatever suits you best/they can get simultaneously.  I've failed at multiple places whilst someone else succeeded and vice versa.

How exactly does the process work for coach resale? Select either the Wednesday or Thursday then F5 like mad and hope you get through so that you get to select a location? Or do you select the location after the date and then F5?

Welcome aboard , 🙂 , May I be the first to throw you a upvote .

the balance from the general sale is the week commencing 1st April , and closes on the 7th , therefore resale should be 2nd or 3rd weekend in April, I think that’s correct, unless anyone else has more accurate information?

That's correct - more likely the second (or fourth possibly) as the third weekend this year is Easter :)

Thank you both - not long now at all  

Not sure the nerves will take the hell of resale day.  Felt like someone had cut something off me ticket day in October

It’s all a numbers thing , the more friends , family ect you have trying for you the better ( not all on the same internet connection ) , we have had a good hit rate from mobile phone on 4g , but sure that’s just a coincidence.

I'll be trying for tickets in April, but the wife and I are also trying for our second child - there'd be a certain irony if both ended up happening! 

Well, the first ended up happening!

So now (tickets permitting) I get to have a very adult Glastonbury rather than with toddler, who's staying at home with a pregnant mum!

Congratulations dude.

No ticket resale stress too.

just re-read your post; sorry; so you still need 1 for you. So you still have resale stress!
