You’ve Got Your Glastonbury Tickets: What Now?

So, your Glastonbury tickets are in the bank, you’ve read up on how to survive the best festival in the world and you’ve learned from my Glastonbury mistakes, what next?

When it comes to Glastonbury, you can never be too prepared, too early. For first timers I’d advise you to come up with a Glastonbury checklist to make sure you and your mates bring everything you need. You do not want to be stuck in that field without enough beer supplies, tried and tested wellies, or a warm sleeping bag, trust me. Make sure you’ve got the right clothing too – warm for the night, a nice women’s jacket or men’s hoody will serve you well.

If you and a few mates have got Glastonbury tickets you should also think about how you’re going to get there and what entrance and campsite you’re going to head for. I’ll stop talking, just check out my pics for more tips…

Loving the tips Vicky and the funky costumes.

I run a site for kicks - - so I'll be tweeting and posting this on Irish Glastonbury forums to get the word out to festival enthusiasts over here. Huge numbers of Irish travel over, Glasto a bit of a mecca!

Good tips! I think for the first timers the line up research is the most important. When I first went to Glasto I didn't realise that the stages are so far away from each other, and that the people traffic is really bad at times and it's hard to get from one stage to another in a short time. I would also stress that if it rains the mud might be an obstacle in doing anything. So many people got their wellies sucked in or broken because the mud was so deep. Also, don't overdo the drugs/drinks. The festival is huge and it's easy to get lost. But most of all - have fun :) It's the best festival in the world.

Great tips Jo, thanks!

Ahhhh - what a great post. Am going next year and this has got me all hyped up again - thanks!

You should probably also added "save your money to pay for the actual ticket" as payment for that happens in the new year and I suspect many people may give up their tickets because they don't put the rest of the cash away. Good news for those trying to bag a ticket for round two though...
