Now That's What I Call Covid 19?

Quick note to think carefully when coming to post things like "yes it's sad but it's just a festival" and "we will all have bigger things to worry about soon". Yes, for myself and for most people here

We're all pretty shocked by the unprecedented (in our lifetimes) events  happening across the world. Some of us are focusing on a music festival, in the way that you can burst into tears when spilling

I reckon we'll see a huge number of festivals cancel before the end of the week now. :( 

Think Blue Dot will go? Saw their statement this week and they were my second choice, but I just can't see it. Gonna be a long summer.

Still other festivals available to volunteer for with Oxfam....soooo if you pick two and when they're cancelled aswell wouldn't that give you priority Oxfam places for Glastonbury 2021 🤔🙂

My first Bluedot experience last year and despite the mud I loved it. If it isn't cancelled, I might go now, but I'm not optimistic.

Yeah I went for the first year in 2016. It was great and I love the line-up this year. I just don't think we'll be out of this by July though.

still think youll have a shot at the resale whenever that may be, definitely going to be some tickets back in the pot

Yeah I'll likely give it a go, but I'm not getting my hopes up!

Absolutely gutted that it's been cancelled, but in a strange way also relieved. We now don't have the stress of it being cancelled closer to the time. 

I'm absolutely elated that ticket holders have a guaranteed ticket for 2021. It's actually really helped how I feel about the cancellation.

This could be beneficial to our resale club also because I think a lot of people will be dropping their guaranteed tickets.

Stay strong everyone, we aren't missing the 50th anniversary. the goal posts have just moved!

Had my post night shift kip disturbed. Obviously selfishly happy and feel it’s justified our tickets roll over; as they said in their statement they’re difficult to obtain. 

For all that missed out this year, keep the faith. If anything, this virus may put some of the fair-weather attendees off next year and make it slightly easier. Will certainly put my hat in the ring to help you all get to the farm in 2021.

 

Now, do you reckon they’ll be showing the football on the big screens?

yep, I think everything will go, to the end of July and beyond. I personally can't see any festivals happening this year - even in Sept and Oct. Just my opinion, of course.

Great decision, although now need to persuade Mrs P she'll be fine looking after 2 kids as opposed to 1 for the last few years!

I'm remarkably sanguine at the moment. I think I went throw the upset stage yesterday. But one challenge with the entire Covid-19 situation is the lack of certainty on so many things. At least we have certainty on this now, and I find that a relief.

Great work by the Eavii and organisers too. I think they've handled it very well.

I won't lie on a personal, selfish basis I'm feeling gutted as it means unless I get lucky in the resale next year my next Glasto could be 2022... but at the end of the day i's the fairest thing to do and I'm really happy for those who have their tickets rolled over!

I think there will be a significant number of tickets available for new purchasers next year. And of course those of us that already have them will rally round to help the have-nots of this community. It really will be the best time to be part of eFests.

Next year will still be its 50th festival, no?

Edit: never mind, it was anniversary from 1970 - not the 50th festival. Silly me.

Depending on rescheduling there could be an England game clash. Hopefully everything remains the same for both events and just pushed forward a day.

I was expecting this, but it's gutting. Think they've 100% made the right and honourable decision. Rolling over tickets is also the best decision commercially. We have to support them if we want the magnificent Glastonbury to continue.

I've had to suspend all my yoga classes this week and 99% of people who've paid upfront have just asked for credits towards classes when they resume, as they don't want me to suffer financially. I hasten to add, it's relatively small amounts of money for the individuals, just would be a big hit for me when added together.
