Hang on, that’s my morning turnout spot!  Typically very close to 8am. They’ve just been cleaned at that time, it’s as quiet and pleasant as it could possibly be, and I’m ridding myself of all the previous day’s unwanted toxins. I bloody love my Glastonbury morning poop routine 🤣

Damn autocorrect changing ridding to riding

Composter's for me now without question, always walk the extra distance to go to them. Provided people use them properly it's a good system, such much better than a portaloo showered in shit

In ireland the only bogs we have look like this mountainblanketbog.jpg

 

Although I did have a very nice sleep in one of the compost toilets in the SEC in 2016 so thats probably my favourite

Literally the first ones near me when the cogs start turning, I've got better things to do than search for somewhere and other things to worry about a few more pints down the line.

The composters backstage at the Acoustic Stage ;)

(But for public consumption, the long drops up by the Astrolabe, just before you go to Gate C, are top notch). 

 

(I used the loos in the utility area of the farmhouse once - when I was down for the Festival Run. Most exciting wee of my entire life)

Now I'm not too fussy I just get the job over and done with!

The ones at the bottom of the WV hill just as you come into the site are great. Always clean and never a queue.

Longdrops at the back of Astrolabe are the very last word in luxury 😙👌

2019 will be my first no smoking Glastonbury, we'll see if I love longdrops so much when the pleasure of having a smoke and a shit no longer exists.

At the composters by the Other Stage right at the back of Oxlyers, first thing in the morning. Job done!

None of the above as I reside in CV East and get my business done early doors up there after they have been cleaned... very civilised.

if I had to select a go to on site it would be the composters south of healing/craft...

Quite a fan of a (clean) portaloo in the morning. Have the luxury of being in camper van field so there’re not so bad. You can lock the door, rest your head on the inside of the door and get on with it in anonymity. Head is normally pretty pounding at that time. Not so much fun when it’s baking hot in a turdis though. On site in the evening when your, erm, partying hard then the composters come into action, unless it’s a wee then the long drops are a thing of outdoor micturating beauty.

I am quite happy to use whatever is available, but one of our group had a eureka moment when she found her first composter. As the person who organises our group, some may say control freak, but i say organise, i have been tasked with  mapping the compost loos for her.

Compost loos all the way, although I never hang around in any toilet longer than I have to! We camp in Bushy now so I normally end up going at the campsite and it's usually fine, maybe a bit of a queue, but so much nicer than long drops. Trying to find a clean/dry seat in those always seems a mission but not so in the composters. Only problem with the latter is the doors tend to start coming off by the end of the fest. 

Top thread by the way, important issue! :)

Also yeah where are the long drops with a roof? I only know two types - the raised and not raised ones, all green doors and open to the elements.
