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!

Definitely not the usual experience, terrible for her of course.

Having to stick to a coach time is a particularly small price to pay, considering all the other benefits, chief of all having a ticket in the first place.

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

TBH , it could be Clapton town band , couldn’t care ... it’s glastonbury ...there is always something cool to watch somewhere

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....) 

 

 

People...this is great news....if the ratio of dropouts is mirrored across the entire ticket holding demographic we could be looking at 65k in the resale pot!

This change in weather, the sun's sudden higher position in the sky, the fact it's already February.... I'm not sure how I feel about being ticketless right now. This feeling dissipated over the festive period, but it's back, with a bang. Need some positive vibes!!!!

Back in to the thread.....needed to get the no ticket out of my mind for a while

Been speaking to people that have tickets and they are all still not 100% sure if they will pay their balance.

This gives me a lot of hope.

I'm still undecided if we're going to come / try for tickets this year. Usually I wouldn't question it but last year we had such a good holiday year, a lot of our usual group of friends aren't going. And I don't have the same excitement as previous years. Of course, I know without a ticket come June time I'll be crying somewhere at not being there. It's also a money thing - could do with saving money rather than spending £500 on tickets and then spending, transport etc.

I'm back to checking this forum multiple times a day and following all the rumours intently, need to get a ticket!

Don’t lose faith, we’ll do this! We’ll be sitting in that field come end of June, listening to The Killers headline the Pyramid Stage, I believe that!

Need some help....with Resale Day looming ever larger myself and Mrs P have been discussing our 'accommodation' options if we get lucky in the sale.  We've used Tangerine Fields for a few years now but unless we manage to bag a cancellation in TF we're looking at camping on site - something that we've not ever done before (mainly due to early years being spent in a number of VW Campers...).

This prospect isn't sitting well with Mrs P who likes a little space and comfort, so I need some ideas on how to do it with as little stress as possible.  The plan so far is as follows:-

- park in West

- get a decent trolley and load it with just the essentials, tent, bedding, clothes, toothbrush so that in the event of p*ssing rain etc we won't have to do more trips immediately.

- camp on West side in Pylon, Bushy etc where ground is flat and in previous years there seems to be more space than elsewhere.  is this still the case?  How late could we turn up to find space here?

Anything else I can do to make life as easy as possible?

The past 3 festivals we’ve arrived west side late weds morning, an hour’s queue then camped pylons area, loads of space. Shuttle run as you say.

You’ve pretty much answered your own questions there pj, West is Best for a bit more space; there was still room Thurs PM.

Hope to be there again this year pending resale gods playing ball.

You could always try Love Fields if you do want very close, off site camping with loads of space, may already be fully booked though, haven’t checked.

How does it work on the coach resale again? Do we select a date and a location and then hit F5 and hope? Or do we select the location after getting passed the F5 stage?

Ive got through before on coach resale, just cant remember how the process goes....

Hi PJ , we do a 5 man tent for me& Mrs , and here’s the nugget , Costco do an inflatable BED , very comfortable, about 12 - 18 inches high , and firm enough to sit on and put you shoes on .  We use a 4 wheel truck , the inflated wheels green type that lots seam to use , just take in the basics on the first run , tent , bed , bedding, change of clothes and a create of thatchers. Ps , a cheap battery powered blower to inflate the bed

Good luck mate , hope you do well in the resale.

I've spoken with a surprisingly large number of people who are no longer going for various reasons, none of them to do with the proposed headliners. The deposit scheme structure allows people to secure a ticket in October then they have six months to decide if they're going and many of them have decided not to bother (I'd say that most weren't 100% committed to begin with). This is obviously great news for those trying in the resale but it begs the question, is the current deposit system fair for those who desperately want to go but miss out on ticket day to those who are just chancing their arm and seeing how the land lies in six months time? Would the loss of the entire deposit discourage those in two minds, leaving the path clear for those who really want to attend? Just a thought.

Totally agree. There's the other side of the argument that it gives people time to save, so not to exclude those with low/no-income. But if you ask me, if you are committed enough you would save pre-October for the ticket

My own personal view , has been mentioned a few times in the past, is pay the full amount at time of first sale to stop ‘ the chancers’ And give the die hard ‘ I don’t care who headlines I just want to be there ‘ a better chance of securing tickets first time of asking. 

Been said before but those of lower incomes can still budget. They know the sale is October so everyone knows the form.

Said my bit. It’s the weekend. Let’s get drunk!

Have a good one you lovely lot.

Just a thought.

I think the time has come to raise the deposit to the percentage of the full ticket value it represented when the system was introduced. Back then £50 equated to approx 33% of the full ticket price. Over the years it has eroded to just below 20%. This may go some way to alleviate the problem of tickets being banked on deposits by speculators who have low/half-hearted interest in actually going.
