    I watched the footage of that 'incident' (i.e. murder in front of the stage) only a few days ago. :eek:

    Just for the 'anniversary' thing, I interviewed Linda Lewis at this year's Glasto who performed at the very first Glastonbury :cool:

    Proper nice she was too :)

    You'll have them captive in the car park this time. :)

    Yeah, there could be something to having them in their cars, with their radios on, anticipating the festival. There's the potential to get quite the atmosphere going.

    And some lucky sod could go out to the car park to interview them ;)

    That wasn't a festival, it was a one day show in a stadium where expectation is that the audience are passive consumers of what the stars provide. Obviously Altamont was a bit of an exception, which is why everyone recognises the reference decades later, but without the murder on film it would have been just another stadium gig.

    A festival is much more about everybody being an active participant in something collective (at least in my mind), which is where the likes of Billy Bragg fit in. I've found him a bit dull the last couple of times I've seen him too, but that's not the point, the guy is as much part of the festival as your or I or anyone else.

    Well I would still rather get there for car-park opening, tbh. Big car = plenty of room to sleep, even with camping gear = me NOT trying to drag myself out of bed at stupid o'clock = happier me (subject to coucil approval... ;))

    Maybe you'll get lucky if you do decide to come, but that's one hell of a journey you have to do, it would make me think twice too...

    I hope you're able to make it in the end penni ... I totally understand why you're having big doubts and I sympathise but .... ;)

    remeber that I'm used to driving very long distances and I always combine it with visiting oldest son in London - and the lovely Miss-Shelf!!! :cool:

    and then my mum on the way back oop north!

    I haven't completely given up mind, but my daughter is signed up for the World Challenge to Mongolia in 2011, and that requires a huge commitment from all of us. Financial and time both. :eek:

    I know......;)

    but this time it's as much about time and stuff.

    I would try to get in on the Oxfam thing (if they'd have me) but I simply can't manage the extra days before that it entails. Also as kids are not 18 they can't do that anyway, and would have to hang around somewhere offsite till Wednesday am.

    I might (will) try for 2011 :)

    Word is a number of people managed to get their hands on golden tickets yesterday. Boris is now sorted William. :D

    What do you mean by golden tickets? I've been checking See everyday and nothing.
  13. Tort

    Tort Well-Known Member

    Well OK they aren't golden. They are just tickets. But they were definitely on sale again for a while yesterday. Sorry you missed out. :(
  14. paolo

    paolo Well-Known Member

    Aye. They weren't meant to be on sale. Some kind of mistake at See. Apparently they will probably honour the orders though (and I'm sure deduct from the failed transactions count - not going to be 'extra tickets')

    You'd have to be used to the long distances where you live!!!

    It would be truly lovely to see you if you could make it though. :)

    Oh I see. Not for me, I'm sorted but for madamv. She can't register until tomorrow so fingers crossed there will be lots of cancelled transactions. :)

    look, I know I said anybody but the Stones, but I really didn't mean Andy Williams, honest.

    Is this really a rumour for G2010? :(

    Just spent an enjoyable hour reading these FAQ and A (I was doing it for homework, like ;) :p ) and catching up with the extra/new pix and updates.

    Pretty much anything you want to know about Glastonbury in advance of going is there -- comprehensive is it! :eek:

    Cheers Tort :cool:
  29. William of Walworth

    FPG -- keep a very regular eye open between now and next year on the relevant websites for releases of extra tickets. Good luck!

    Check this post from Tort on another thread for tips ...
