Emily can just go to hell, where I‘m concerned. Her festival is a joke and so is she!!

Your posts today have been a little... off-kilter. I don't think Emily Eavis is deliberately interfering with your volunteering or academic career, and this ^ post teeters on the cliff edge of reason/decorum.

With kindness, I think it might be worth spending your Sunday away from the forum. Log off, and go enjoy the day.

If the proposal for COVID passports for mass events goes ahead how do we think this might effect things? This would apply to Glastonbury I would think - not all artists or other groups who attend will be happy about this. Wonder what impact might be ? Hopefully not longer queues to get in on Weds!

What’s the difference between Covid passports and the system currently in place for gigs/festivals/sports? 

At the moment you have the option of showing negative test results

I don't want to but in but I hope you're ok? I would recommend taking some time off the forum site and enjoy some of natures beauty if you can I find it the best way to relax (that or running).

A negative test that you can just lie about as it’s all based on trust. The new thing will be showing your barcoded vaccine ‘passport’ and so not something you can just blag, although whether it’s gonna be something venues rigorously check is another thing entirely, and I’m sure there will be passports being sold on some kind of black market in no time (if there aren’t already).

If it helps give some hope to the ticketless, we were a group of 16 going to Glastonbury 2020, we are now down to 10.

That’s interesting, I know of 18 people who have paid the deposit, though not part of any group.  Been monitoring them from afar (nothing creepy, just doing it on behalf of those ticketless e festers). Twelve including ourselves are definitely going, fully committed, four arnt going due to various circumstances but only two have asked for deposits back, think that’s due to them also needing the cash back for Sticklinch camping. The other two reckon they won’t go, not a happy couple. So the real possibility of six back in the pot.

I kinda dig the idea that Emily personally vets every volunteer, takes up the references herself and engages in petty disputes with people she doesn’t know.

It’s basically what we do on here.

There will still be some people who try to fake the vaccine status. We’ve had a decent amount of that happen over here in the u.s already. Its a matter of the system working correctly in 9 months

A screenshot on your phone isnt going to be that hard to doctor should you be that way inclined.  Are the people checking them really going to watch you log into the app?.. no chance.

I am in favour of proof of vaccination and the subsequent checks but its going to be a piece of piss to get around should you want to.

It’ll still be tricky because the vaccine doesn’t eliminate transmission, so large gatherings will still be super spreader events until we all inevitably catch it at some point. There will still be more vulnerable groups, so do I attend Glastonbury as a person in my 40’s and return to my parent’s place with them turning 72 next year? We’re all double jabbed already (and presumably they’ll have had boosters) but there will still be an increased risk of catching and spreading Covid by attending Glastonbury. So I’m not sure what my post-festival strategy should be.

Not unless its a rotating barcode which is becoming more the norm for things. You cant fake that when it gets scanned. Thats the biggest part of all this, not using human eyeballs to check validity but technology.

I've just been abroad and had nothing scanned, i'll stick my neck out and say that theres very little chance of putting a scanning process in place. The red tape around access to government databases will see to that.

The whole passport thing is to scare the idiots who wont get it to get it imo, and rightly so.  But the actual logistics of checking 200 thousand + people is just not going to happen.

I have already written off any chance of getting tickets for 22. I also think that 23 is going to be absolute carnage with all of the pent up demand.
 

We will probably try but I think that I will have back-up plans ready. Either way it will be different for us (knowing that it will be ages before we have a chance to get tickets has caused big chunks of our group to loose interest).

Anyway getting back on topic. I think good rumours and self-confirmations will start in Nov ahead of Elton being confirmed in Dec and Billie in Feb. 

I'm going to get an Elton standing ticket for BST on the basis to sell it face value if I get a Glastonbury one.

I think we'll get a headliner this side of Xmas and I would like it to be elton 

Part of me is worried that they'll wait until after Christmas before giving us anything.

Possibly just wait to see what the covid landscape is like?

I know we were in a different position last year in regards to vaccines etc. but there wasn't anything lineup wise confirmed pre cancellation...

I'll bite a hand off for something soon though!
