    Good luck to anyone trying to get tickets today. SeeTickets say they are having technical issues, as usual.

    Start link seems to be this: http://glastonbury.seetickets.com/event/glastonbury-2014-deposits/worthy-farm/800000/

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    I wouldn't put that sort of money down on a festival ticket before knowing the line-up, personally.

    It's just the 50 deposit at this point, although you do lose 15 if you decide not to go.

    Well, didn't manage to get tickets, even with 3 of my friends trying too. Didn't even get past the first page online. Couldn't get through on the phone. Feel a bit gutted. Same happened when I tried to get tickets a few years ago.

    That said, it ain't a hippie festival any more is it. 210 ticket price + 5 booking fee + 7 P&P + 25 car park fee (per car). 247 before you've even got there, then there's the cost of everything else that goes along with it to consider.

    I still hang on to the dream of a free festival where big name bands play only for the love of music.

    I think the doctors need to adjust your medication. :lol:

    I think I saw 3 bands in the 5 days I spent there, though I did imagine dozens of other "acts" at various points along the way.

    I didn't even bother to go through that stress-induced experience of trying to book tickets for Glastonbury.

    ... Lady Luck is never on my side.

    The Isle of Wight festival is the one I like going to nowadays! I (try to) make a holiday out of it.

    The base price is expensive but, to be fair, it's the only mainstream festival that lets you take your own booze into the arena. The amount I drunk last year would have cost me over 100 easily, possibly even 200 at festival prices. As it was I bought 3 crates of beer and a box of wine for about 25 and that did me for the entire thing.

    Also, the other side of it is, you kinda get what you pay for. There's just so much to do and see. It isn't a hippy festival anymore, no; not in the main. But it's still left-leaning and radical if you want it to be and know where to go.

    I was lucky enough to get tickets this year. I didn't get through once, but my mate did so it's all good. To those that didn't, try the resale in spring! I thought I'd have no chance but that's how I got my ticket last year. Meant I had to go via coach as that was the only ticket available. But still got a ticket :)

    Nabbed a ticket just before they sold out. 3rd time in a row!

    They played this year in a 11am slot...

    Oasis won't happen (the rumour is solely based on Liam's desperation - Noel's already ruled it out) but they're still my favourite band and I never got round to seeing them live.

    Blondie played IW the other year. She was fucking dreadful. Dolly would be a show and a half though

    Can't say I'm particularly excited about either. Sort of hoping the strong rumours circling around Kasabian headlining turn out to be false as well...

    Kasabian?! Somebody told me Metallica were headlining. Neither seem very Glastonbury headliner-ish.

    They will be touring their new album by then, so please look forward to an evening of shouty indie pop anthems.

    If Radiohead and Daft Punk are announced as the final headliners along side Arcade Fire, I can't not go. I must make it no matter what.

    Well both have been heavily linked this year. Daft Punk especially.

    It'll be Kasabian and Prince. Probably.

    I missed Kasabian at IW th other year. Pissed down all day, lasted about 4 hours before binning it for the day and watched it on telly. Best decision ever.

    I hope somebody decent gets confirmed soon, not looking particularly great at the moment.

    *crosses fingers that Pixies rumours get confirmed*

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    Metallica are the Saturday headliners.

    How glad I am I didn't try for tickets this year.

    Any new bands or is it just 30 year old legacy acts?

    Actually quite like Metallica in their heyday, but that isn't the point
