Dave got himself some Glastonbury Tickets :D

For those of you who dont know, Glastonbury is a music festival in UK, which is extremely popular. So popular that there is 1 ticket for every 3 people who want to go, which makes ticket day a bit of an ordeal.

Well tickets went on sale at 9am, i have been violently ill all night so pretty much pulled an all nighter. Sat down in front of the PC about 7.30 and waited to 9am to tick over...

9am came, and i was sat refreshing pages for 45 minutes before i got through! Worst waiting ever, it got to a point when i was doubtful I would get them. When i finally got confirmation, i was sooo pleased, and still am!

Just thought id share my moment of happiness with you all

I don't live far from Glastonbury.

I remember years ago you could get in under the fence where there was a stream.

Take loo-roll for bartering lol if it rains you could sell some wellington boots for loads of money.

its the LEAST commerical festival there is. I'm not sure if you are actually judging your opinion on going to festivals or not, but if you are then you will know that festivals such as V and CW are commericialised, glastonbury is very much not in comparison. If you haven't been to any of these festivals, then what are you judging your opinions on?

Glastonbury is the only festival to have introduced a real anti touting system where you had to register before buying, and upload a photo of yourself which will be used on your ticket. This prevents anybody being able to sell tickets on ebay and it simply genious if you ask me. More festivals and major events should implement this method
