What have you done to appease the ticket gods?

Recommended Posts

Whenever anyone has asked about Glastonbury tickets, I’ve been honest about what you have to do and how hard it is but that it is possible to get tickets. I hope that appeases the ticket gods. 

 

What have you done or will do?

I will be on a cruise ship in the middle of the Med if ticket sale date is Sunday 06th. My internet options are going to terrible verging on non existent. I may try to appease the gods by sacrificing my wife to Poseidon. Will be worth it for guaranteed tickets :)

Gotta get past the missus first. Any advice on appeasing her first would be  much appreciated. One step at a time. 🤣

Ask if she wants to go on a cruise with @dj_conway

Managed to convince all my high school friends to do Glasto meaning my ticket chances have gone up exponentially, hopefully some newbies appeases the 1's and 0's at seetickets data centre

Amongst my various offerings and rituals I have: bragged to friends about how amazing it is to try and convince them to come, placed myself in a remote location on ticket sale day, and above all have been completing various charitable activities for Greenpeace.

The only years I have managed to get tickets myself was on my PC, infact was  times in a row So after not using my PC for 3 years on Sunday I reformatted it and bought a new keyboard and mouse. Only program installed is notepad and chome.

Think this is taking obsession to far

I've roped a load of my lot in as first timers in the hopes that the ticket gods will look down kindly on newbies and I'll get lumped in with them!! 

The Whatsapp group has been created and the Registration Spreadsheet is getting sent out this week. 

Not sure they're prepared for the ticket stress that's to come but the nerves are steadily mounting.

Surely not being successful in any ticket sale since 2016 is punishment enough and the ticket gods are satisfied with such penance!

I've given my life to reading/writing endless shite on this website every day in the hope of a minor advantage.

Not sure it's worked yet.

Well, my other half ain't happy when I go either, especially now she has to take care of our girl all by herself for a week, but saying no to Glasto is out of the question. She learned to live with that. Also, last couple of years she has learned that the one thing that's worse than me getting tickets is me NOT getting tickets.

I really never get the 'getting it past the other half', its a long weekend, and unless the time/money impacts on family holidays / family priorities then surely each person in any relationship also lives their own lives with their own loves and time out to do their own thing ... mp me person controls the other to that degree- its a partnership (caveated of course with anyone with kids/or those where it eats into family time and monies and impacts those detrimentally and without agreement )

With the Wife due our first child in January it's not so much getting it past the other half but more negotiation on when I go / come home.

Thankfully living close helps.

Current thinking is down weds morning and home Thursday afternoon.

Back down friday lunchtime and then home sunday after the headliner.

I've negotiated leaving the North West Thursday lunchtime and coming home Sunday after the headliner. My eldest is at school now, and my work isn't the most flexible so it's a pretty good deal overall! The rest of my group will go down and set up Tuesday night for Wednesday. All dependent on ticket success of course!

Im going to buy Green Day tickets so that fate will mean I get Glastonbury tickets and be forced to sell the Green Day ones. If I don’t get Green Day in hope for Glastonbury I won’t get Glasto tickets. Hopefully this psychology will work.

Did that last time, gutted to miss out the Wednesday and did slightly over do it Thursday due to my over excitement and urge to catch up but leaving Sunday night didn’t bother me at all.
