    I'm new here but couldn't help noticing the lack of Glastonbury threads here. Decent ones anyway.

    So, share experiences and just generally discuss.

    It's £195 for a ticket plus a£5 booking fee. And then if you want a car parking place which is probable an extra £20. So about £220. But you'll also want food etc.

    nah, just take alcohol with you. Grab a backpack fill it with cans or whatever else you feel like intoxicating yourself with for a day and head off to enjoy the music reminding yourself that if you were at 90% of festivals in the UK every can would be costing you £3.50.

    My budget usually works out as £200 ticket etc. parking is split between people in the car so that's only about £5, every meal averages £5 if you don't take any of your own food, so 5 days 3 meals a day, you're looking at about £70 or so, so round up to £100 for other expenses, £300-350, 5 day holiday with nearly 24/7 live music. Bargain!

    Take your own booze - but no glass.

    I'spend about 100 too.

    The weather wasn't great last year. Unusual for Glasto, certainly, but you had to be in that heat to know how intense and relentless it was! Not saying that I didn't have a great time - it was probably my favourite Glasto yet, but a bit overcast is infinitely preferable to 'hotter than Rio and Mexico' (reported by the Q Daily)... I'm very pale, and had horrific sunburn despite lathering on the factor 50+, and I fainted once and had to take time out a fair few times... I may be of a slightly 'sensitive' constitution, but many suffered the same, and I hope the weather isn't like that again. It was better in 2009 - bit of rain on the first morning, then decent sunshine and warmth for most of the remainder.

    Having said that, I love everything about Glastonbury, and am so excited for this year!

    I went 2009, the weather was perfect. Even got to experience a bit of teh old classic mud!

    Hmm I wonder how many tickets will get released if any early May. I've guessing just a handful, so expect that I'd have more chance of winning a tenner on the lottery. Still, a man can dream :cool:

    I agree 2010 was too much sun, I was just tired and boiling the whole time, some of the tents were incredible. However, on balance, when compared to 2007 the year of virtually non-stop rain, I can conclude that too much sun is far far better than too much rain. (Worst thing about rain being that it makes it impossible to sit down which is horrendous).

    I agree there was way too much sun, but the thing about Glastonbury is that it's always the weirdest things that make you better. I, for example was feeling ill from the sun so we went and sat in a tent and made clay models and this random gril came up to me and started a water fight with me, she had a proper gun and everything. I was fine after that. Sooo excited now.
    What does everyone think of the lineup?
