If The Killers are playing I will sell my soul to get a ticket. I reckon my soul is worth about £8.53.

So then I sell all my worldly possessions which amounts to about £127.89.

Can anyone lend me a couple of quid??

All good here mate. Just been contemplating the last few days which one of the 5 of us is going to have to go it alone in the resale and risk a) missing out or b) being the only one who potentially gets a ticket and has to go solo. I guess we could split it 2-3 and keep our fingers crossed.

Bit of a quandary to say the least.

All good your end?

Can’t you split so it’s 2 in coach and rest in general?

We’re 5 too, we want coach, so it’s 2, 2 and a 1! Harsh. Then we’ll have to go 3 and a 2 in the main sale. 5 is a crap number for the resale!

A possibility. The one problem is the fact no one wants to go by coach! 

Might have to ponder further.

You guys should take some of this positivity over to the Headliners thread where some folk are getting kinda angry about the headliners...

So I've come over to tell you guys about my group of 19. You might remember I told you I had a few drop outs due to a wedding etc , but since then things have become even worse:

1. In - Me: I am still going and will travel through hell and high water (although hopefully not that much rain water obvs) to get to the G, even if all of my other crew have dropped out and 

2. Out - wedding

3: Out - wedding

4: Out - only knows the two people who are out due to the wedding

5: Out - pregnant and due Glastonbury weekend

6: Out - wife pregnant and due Glastonbury weekend

7: Out - got dumped by number 8 and decided to book herself a trip to Bali that weekend instead

8: Probably out - Has got a new job which won't let him have the four weeks off he was planning for a three-week Andean climbing trip literally B2B with Glastonbury. May still end up coming as his arm is fucked and he reckons he needs an op on it before risking his life in the mountains. We probs find that out this week. If he can't get the op in time, he'll be coming to the farm

9: Probably out but too scared to tell me - Only really knows people 1-6 and prefers the boomtown lineup and can't do both as currently lives in NYC

10: Probably out but feels too guilty to confirm - Not impressed with the lineup and accidentally booked a family holiday flying out on Monday 1st July and for some reason thinks this is a problem

11: Still in for now - The guy who sits next to me at uni. His first festival, and he's pretty excited but his girlfriend recently realised what a drugs/booze fest Glastonbury is and she's starting to put her foot down... So we'll see how that goes

12-13: In - newbies, want to stay in a camper van 

14-15: In - Very excited newbies

16-17: In - Veterans but this year bringing one of their Mum's and her partner for her 70th, so may be a different urrrrm "vibe" from previous years

18-19: In - Newbies, Number 15's Mum and her partner. 

So, as you can see, my crew may well have more than halved! And somehow lost most of the veterans! However, good news for you guys :) especially if people really do think like my number 10 does and actually don't want to go due to the lineup (which I didn't think was a thing, but now I realise it is....)

We're a 5 too :( I would hate to do coach as well but happy to take one for the team as we live in London so will be more options for us. Also hoping if the other 3 get tickets then they will pitch our tent if we end up on a late coach. 

Not long now guys.. 9ish weeks

I know, I was so pleased at the time - no man was left behind :) Obviously I can't be too annoyed at the wedding/imminent baby issues...but yeh, some of the others clearly just don't get it. I was hanging out with the two who are going to the wedding at the weekend. One of them was like "oh its fine, we'll come in 2020, that's the big one anyway"......so I think there's potentially an additional thing of not realising how lucky we were to get all those tickets and how unlikely it will be to happen again! Oh well, ce la vie

TBH, I have personally never actually purchased a ticket. But this year I was shit hot on organisation, which I like to think was key to our success :lol: Everyone in teams of six, a WhatsApp group for each team and then one WhatsApp group for the team leaders. One of my friends gets through every fucking year since god knows when, but this year someone else got in twice and bought 12 tickets (weirdly, she also got through on the coach tickets on thurs...I half think there's something in that, like they remember your IP or something, but its probably a conspiracy). I know for a fact she just did it by having one browser on one device, pressing refresh not too fast and, most importantly, staying calm. Also go for coaches, because even if only 2 of you secure a coach (as we did), it can bring down the number of groups your trying for on the Sunday. 

I'll obviously be livid when, after they all bailed this year, we fail to get any tickets next year using this exact method

wowzers , that is impresive , i have multiple pc's / ipads ect on multilple network connections , all running all sorts of browsers , and my mrs gets through on her iphone on 4g ( with only 1 bar of signal ) and has done the last three times inc this year . i think its just luck and numbers , the more people you have trying , the better your odds ,

also agree on the lineup , it is what it is .. your at glosto ffs , go large !!! and go with the flow , its not all on the pyraimid .. there is soooooo much more going on :-)

Why all the coach hate? Ignoring the fact that it's a great way to travel (and by the sounds of it you'll have mates going in the car to take extra stuff, all going to plan), you're simply maximising your chances by trying in the coach resale before the main resale...

Hate was for sure the wrong word, as I am definitely keen to travel this way if it means I get there (hence me and my partner splitting from the other 3!). Just a slight annoyance with having to leave as per the coach time. I also once traveled via national express and once at the festival the driver spilled out all our bags onto the gravel, upon which a girls bag was stolen.. She had nothing apart from the clothes she was stood up in and that was the end of her glasto before she even got through the gates. Will never forget that. 

But like I said, whatever gets me there!
