Resale Club 2019

Recommended Posts

Hey guys , i know we all use this awesome site for information and chat and mutual support especially leading up to resale day , 

a lot of us have signed up for advertising free membership, but there are some new comers who may not be aware , the site admins who created and run this site do so on a shoestring budget and fir the benefit of us festival lovers so every penny counts , 

so for a meagre £19 per year , dig deep guys , let’s keep this awesome site running at the incredible high standards. 

Note to the admins , thank you from all your hard work , I sure many of us never give it a thought , but I would like to put it out there , keep it up , we / I really appreciate it .

Christ on a moped - the Festaff option seems to have gone out of the window!

 

We are setting the bar at a minimum of 2 events with us in summer 2018.

Complete 2 weekend events with us this summer 2018 and you will put you on a Priority Application List for Glastonbury 2019.

I'm on a mass recruitment drive for resale day. This is becoming unbearable.

Not that I was 100% free or even looked into but would anyone consider doing the Oxfam deal, then if they got lucky in the resale taking a big hit to attend completely to their own devices?

It wouldn't be that big of a hit. As long as you cancel at least 6 weeks out, it'd be a £20 admin fee.

I thought it was 6 weeks from being approved?

Each Festival has a 'cancellation deadline' which is 6 weeks before you are expected on-site. If you cancel a Festival after its cancellation deadline, you may forfeit your deposit. If you do need to cancel your place, the below admin fees will apply:

  • Cancelling any number of festivals within 7 days of applying: No admin fee
  • Cancelling a place at a festival before the 6-week cancellation deadline is £20 per festival.

I've cut out some of the more detailed stuff about exceptional circumstances, lost equipment, etc. But it's definitely "6 weeks before you're expected on site" - for Glastonbury I make that either May 11, 13, or 14 depending on which day they're using so hopefully the resale has happened by then and anyone who's signed up to volunteer as an insurance policy will be able to make an informed decision.

I have chosen go with Oxfam and to get a place was just as stressful as ticket day with the site crashing and all stewarding places gone in 20 mins, so not an option now unless you campaign I’m afraid. I’m going to stick with it weighing up all the pros and cons, ie go in early, we can take are motorhome, secure campsite.

I see, if I'd have looked more I'd have secured a ticket...albeit I was at work that day so a toilet phone break would have been hard lol, and took the £20 hit if successful in the resale.

Fairplay.

Just to echo what a few people have said: the wait is by far the worst part! I saw the Resale Club twitter posted that a Friday or last week of Feb seems to be the most popular time for an announcement - so here's hoping for an absolute dogturd announcement in the next week or 2 to get more tickets back in that pot!

Does anyone believe that really happens?

I can certainly envisage that there are headliners who prompt some people to desperately want a ticket where they may have been on the fence before, just find it hard to believe the opposite.

For die-hard Glasto fans I don't think annoucements matter too much. However for the non-committed and hangers on who got a ticket in the autumn, I believe they do. It helps shape the picture of what they want to do or can do this summer. Along with other issues such as mates dropping out, available holiday from work, clashing events (eg weddings), money needed elsewhere and.....no no no I really don't think I could cope with living in a tent and all that dust/dirt/mud 😂

Yeah i agree, die hards who go every year doesn't matter who plays, but there are people, mainly who have never been before and don't realise what glastonbury really is, will defo look for headliners etc and change their minds - they have nothing to base it on, we all just have to hope there are loads of them types and they all put their tickets back for us

I probably shouldn’t admit this but I’d absolutely go and see Westlife if they played and sing my little heart out too.

Same here , sunshine is out , me and Mrs been on a road trip today , listening to radio X and contemplating possible acts who could play / have played in the past. 

Cant wait to get back on the farm , been sooooo long as didn’t get ticket in 2017 . The only thing that kept me going was tickets to the Pilton Party last year , funny how it was so pleasant it was to see the long drops , lol
