As others have said, Glastonbury is too big to be able to do it and not miss a fair bit of each set.

In ground conditions like 2016 it would be impossible. So you also have to take into account what it’s like on the day. 
 

It’s a no from me. Pick an act and enjoy their full set.

Remember doing this for Ed Shearan to see Justice (good move)

(WTF was I doing there in the first place?)

The absolute correct decision here!

Absolutely pointless IMO. 

2011 was mine and Mrs J’s first festival together. Come the final night she wanted Beyoncé and I wanted QOTSA, we ended up watching the first half of B before I dragged her over to the Other for the end of Queens.

Neither party was satisfied.

9 years on and she still hasn’t let it go.

A no from me, too. I’ve only done it twice, I forget the first one as it was my first year.

Most recent one was last year. Watched Miley Cyrus then left for Billie Eilish. Didn’t enjoy Billie’s set really and wished I’d stayed for all of Miley.

A huge majority of people I’ve spoken to who do the half and half thing regret it. Weirdly people always seem to say they preferred the act they left early to the one they moved on to.

At APE for Strokes day last year I was very happy to skip from stage to stage to stage. Did similar at Truck.

But I think its a scale thing. My understanding of Glastonbury as somebody who hasn't attended is that it's fucking huge, and that it would be less practical to do it there.

I suppose if you’re not enjoying the first one then it isn’t really a wrench to leave and you don’t think of it as doing “half and half”.

Have sadly never been to Glasto although I constantly swap between stages at the likes of Reading. There is far too much to see on the bill and unless it's an act I really am in love with, I will usually try to stay for at least half.
