Glastonbury Festival Fun

Sunday, 9 October 2016
It was that time of year again when your stress levels are raised to the limit and you’ve never pressed refresh so much in such a short space of time since the same time the year before and the year before that. Yes, I am talking about the Glastonbury Festival ticket sales! In all honesty the ticket sale is a complete shambles. I get it they’re selling around 135,000 tickets with what I imagine are millions of people trying to get their hands on one, but it has to be one of the most frustrating experiences of life. The website you buy them from is See Tickets which is unlike Ticketmaster where you join a queue, with See Tickets you just refresh the page every 20-30 seconds until you’re lucky enough to refresh it to a page where you can purchase tickets. Some people have the joy of loading a Glastonbury See Tickets page which refreshes itself, however for the rest of us mere mortals we are stuck with “This page cannot be loaded” and have to refresh ourselves.

Now, I can’t complain too much because I actually managed to get tickets this year and it only took about 15 minutes. Well I didn’t actually get them myself someone in my group did, either way Glastonbury 2017 will be the third time I’m heading to the Festival so I have been very lucky. The first time we tried we didn’t get them and we were sat refreshing for over an hour with no joy so I do sympathise with those who didn’t manage to get tickets. That being said I am so excited to be going again, I’ve been to many different festivals both here in the UK and abroad and Glastonbury has to be my favourite. First of all it’s absolutely huge, it’s basically it’s own town which does mean there's a lot of walking but also that there’s lots of room for so many different things to do and see - crate stacking for example, who knew that would be so entertaining? Even after this years mud bath that festival organisers are calling “the muddiest Glastonbury ever” can’t put me off going again. I’ve seen the likes of Adele, Coldplay, Arcade Fire & Kasabian headline the pyramid stage and I can only dream of what next years festival has in store...
