  1. 1. Following the Oxford Vaccine news will it go ahead?

    • Yes - I 100% believe
      43
    • Yes - I think so but not close to 100%. Need to see how the roll out progresses.
      158
    • Maybe - I'm 50/50
      87
    • Unlikely - Even with the latest news I think it's unlikely to take place
      79
    • No - The vaccine news is great but I can't see 200k people being allowed at Worthy Farm in June.

Scientifically, nobody has been able to penetrate The Mind Of The Nal. It’s a true enigma.

A census taker once tried to test Nal.  He ate his liver, with a growler and a nice pint from the cider bus.

At this stage, while it's looking unlikely to a lot of people that Glastonbury will be going ahead, let's just remember that even if it doesn't, by the time we get to late June the situation in the co

Inevitable I suppose

Festivals can’t go ahead until every adult has been offered the chance to have a vaccine.

But why? You'd think this government would want to go back to normal as soon as is reasonably possible. Continued restrictions when the vulnerable groups are already vaccinated will likely do more damage than good

I agree, its fucking boring (and irritating)

It's just trolling really but high-effort trolling.

I used to make this argument but I think we’ve had our answer in the past few days.

Festivals can’t go ahead until every adult has been offered the chance to have a vaccine. It’s not everyone being vaccinated, but everyone has the opportunity to get one.

We are going for another year of no gigs. October 2021 at the earliest (which is when the gov have promised that all adults will have a chance at vaccination).

What's made you change ur mind to think every adult will need to be offered it?

And the tube system in London ... twice per day packed with people ... inside ... 

Yep the optimist in me thinks lots of people in place is too intrinsically linked to the economy to not happen sooner rather than later.

He / she ? Do we know for sure used to be caged inside the weather thread ... we can’t have any weather trolling ..so now it’s moved on to festival trolling ... makes me yawn too ... don’t get the point in winding up people and trying to spoil any small glimmers of hope especially in times like this ... I try to stick as closely as possible to mantra of being nice to people and giving people a chance despite being on the internet ...

Thing is, how much of the population needs to be vaccinated before the festival is okay to happen? If their target is the first 4 groups (around 15m people) to be done in February, then surely by June they'll have vaccinated even more of the priority groups.

So if enough are vaccinated and hospitalisations have dropped significantly, then couldnt the festival still happen?

You may have answered yourself. There are a few ifs in your statement and I am not sure the festival will be able put up hundreds of thousand of  pounds and sign contracts on ifs

But they can reopen the economy, have sport return, open pubs etc and keep music events closed.

Cheltenham can go ahead and Glastonbury can be closed. That’s just the way it is.

Because that’s the direction the government is going. They can re open the economy and keep events closed. I think they’ve put music events / concerts in the list of non-essential public gatherings. Sports events can go ahead with a reduced crowd but I think their strategy is that live events are too much of a risk when large sections of the population do not have access to a vaccine.

That’s extremely unlikely to be true. If that’s the case then we’ll need to remain in lockdown until we’ve all been vaccinated. You’ll have no more chance of getting Covid on an individual basis at Glastonbury than you would at a mates house, at work, in the pub. If Covid is circulating then it’s circulating, why would everyone need to be vaccinated for a festival to happen, when you could literally catch it anywhere and most people don’t actually go to festivals?

Maybe not festivals, but gigs at late summer/fall will go for sure, you'll see.

I saw Nal once at the meet. It was either 2017 or 2019, so heatstroke-inducing temperatures.   I avoided him because even then there was a very small, very localised, thundercloud above him.

I made eye contact too long and got struck by lightning. Never again.

That’s what I’ve always maintained.  Well I’ve said outdoor 1 day events or ones without camping etc...

Those of us who have chatted to the Nal at the meets know. Top person indeed. The forum needs Nals to provide the smiles.

How does it provide smiles to post photoshops of articles saying Glasto is cancelled? Doesn't seem very fun to me...
