Having not applied any research into this at all, someone who's done it before said it was a 2 tier application process; something about the first stage needing your photograph? Is that right?

i'd like to go to Glastonbury, as I feel i've outgrown Reading (although i'm going again this year, aswell as exit fest).

I'm off to Glastonbury tomorrow morning. Anyone else going?
First time for me. The line up looks a bit wank tbh.

Seems there are quite a few tickets still unsold: BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Glastonbury tickets remain unsold

I'm not a Glasgonbury fan, don't think I'd go see any band on the bill except Biffy Clyro.

the main line-up maybe shit for some but the best parts of the festival are away from the main stages.

Couldn't agree more.
My only worry is that this year's event might attract a higher ratio of chavs and homies.

nah i doubt it - it will still be the same people going....

i think tickets are only unsold because after last years mud bath the people who have jumped on the glastonbury bandwagon to be seen to be cool have now jumped off as it was hard going (seriously hard going)... which is great... the fact that the main headliners arent as good as previous years means that the media frenzy isnt as much as it was in previous years hence slow ticket sales.

i just wish i was there now shit headliners or not

Ha. Reading was wank 10 years go, now it is a disaster. You should have taken the Glasto option, as said the back stages look good. Much more variety.

Went to reading last year and had a good time, backstage wasn't fantastic, mainly full of rich crackhead fashionistas/darling socialites and all that shit. Best thing about it was being able to take your own beer through and not have to pay a fuckload for pints inside, oh and also bypassing the massive queue and not having to shit on shit mountain... anyone who went to reading in the last few years will know what I mean...

glasto's lost it's charm for me.

Last time I went Our tent was robbed/knifed my car was broken into and my mate was beaten up.

Not the love fest it used to be.

Have a good time.
