Is it possible, what would I need to do? I left it too late to get tickets and now I can only find day ones for like £250 on ebay.

This is all theoretical btw :shiftyrun:

You get a motorbike, and then jump the fence while whistling "The Great Escape".

Good luck.

The boarder security at Reading is insane, including attack dogs and CCTV along the entire perimeter.

Even if you managed to get into the campsite.. theres no way you'd get into the main arena

climb the fence. But you won't get to see bands, you'll just be in the campsites.

you could probably get into the campsite but not the arena. i wouldn't bother trying to be honest with you. either buy a ticket for ridiculous money or go next year and get your ticket early.

Just wear a labcoat with a stethoscope around your neck and run through the gates screaming "DID I HEAR SOMEONE CALL A DOCTOR." Repeat as necessary when you want to get into the main arena.

Yeah I don't look under 12 I can barely get away with lying about my age to bus drivers to get child ticket prices. My friend might sit on my shoulders and wear a very long trench coat...damnation why are the tickets so expensive!

They're expensive due to supply and demand as you're demonstrating.

Low supply, huge demand; so no wonder tickets aren't cheap!

Anyways, yeah, ditto what someone else said - spend craploads for the ones on eBay (but beware they could be fake), or get a ticket early next year. :rolleyes:

I wouldn't risk it, they have claymores planted all over the place.

Really? I would've thought you could find them for cheaper than that. I've been looking to sell my 2 weekend tickets and the going price at the moment seems to be £430 to £450 (i.e. at most £225 each of a weekend ticket).

Get in a donkey costume with someone who has a ticket, or curl up inside a backpack/suitcase/sleeping bag. Or if you have absolutely no shame, find a registered disabled person and pretend to be their carer which afaik gets you in for free for some festivals.
