It's only people who have never been or don't get Glastonbury that ever mock the headliners. Though thankfully, the more that hate it, the better chance I have in the resale!

Exactly that. If you’ve ever been you know it’s not about the headliners.

It's amazing how much there is on the site to do away from the music too.

I must admit you can't beat seeing a favourite band on a random small stage somewhere

Every time I go, I always tell myself I'll try and spend more time watching things in the cabaret and circus field. Admittedly I never ever actually do but I always tell myself I will..

Apparently Kendrick Lemar lined-up to headline Friday night, that'll boil some piss as well...

In all seriousness, McCartney, Swift and Aerosmith is seriously underwhelming though. Thought they'd make a big effort as it's the 50th, but obviously not.

I did that this year due to the lack of bands really wanted to see and really really enjoyed it. Possibly my fav year since the 1990s. Weather helped too!

Lineup is great (although not the circular poster ha), guessing a cancelation is more likely though 

Even if it does go ahead you can see a lot of acts pulling out.

A friend was at a meeting on the farm on Tuesday regarding this years festival. 
Asked about cancellation, was told that they wouldn’t be cancelling unless the government tells them to. 
I’d imagine that stance could change though. 
 

How long do they leave the decision though, the build can’t be too many weeks away from starting.

People have to pay balances first week of April don't they - I imagine they are buying themselves a couple of weeks to see how things are going.  If things end up as predicted then it'll be a fairly quick decision to make. 

It might be the best thing to cancel it after all the rain we've had, the water table must be at one of the highest ever pre festival. One shower will f*** the site sideways if it goes ahead.

I would have thought it might be a better insurance position if the government shut it down than if they cancel it themselves, could be wrong though.

youve got to wonder what the chance of a 75 year old Dianna ross fancying it are even if it does go ahead  . Macca is 77

If Sky is right, this knocks it on the head.

Surely Glastonbury Festival would be the safest place when there's a pandemic what with the healing fields and all. Meditate, a bit of reiki, and touch the wizard's secret stone and you'll be right as rain...

And with everyone slapping on the anti bacterial hand sanitiser.  Some people probably are cleaner there than in their everyday lives. It was mentioned a couple of days ago how mostly men fail to wash their hands after using the toilet. As you are mostly males on this forum,  care to confirm  or deny? Have you noticed a change in work colleagues etc?

I never wash my hands unless I’m wiping my backside and only then if a finger breaks through the paper and my finger smells a bit,you asked ?

even though it (most likely) won't be going ahead now, for 50th anniversary is anyone else completely underwhelmed by that list?

Well it’s only the initial 100 or so but it’s the first year in many that I reckon at least 20+ on that list id like to see. Personal music preferences obviously.  
 

Never going ahead tho..

Less than 10 bands on that list I would genuinely want to see. 

(Notwithstanding everything that takes place away from the musical stages)

30-40 acts I would be keen to watch, but perhaps not many I would run the width of the festival site to make. 

To some of the guys who noted perhaps only 10 acts you are keen on, If you have Spotify and search for Glastonbury 2020 playlist there is a good one there with 5 tracks from each act . You might find some nice surprises in there 

most years I often find some hidden gems pre festival in this manner 

Appreciate it looks unlikely to go ahead anyway.

So under the current govt guidelines, Glastonbury could still go ahead but presumably would have to pay a private security firm to replace the police presence?

I appreciate the govt has plenty of time to be more authoritative in prohibiting events, but just interesting to consider the current state of play.

Do we think people will pay up their tickets given what's going on?

Perhaps the best opportunity for people like me who would have to enter the resale? 

Any point in bothering with the resale?!

It’ll be the easiest year ever to get tickets through the resale.

But there’s a very high chance it’ll be cancelled.

If they refund tickets on cancellation then it’s worth a go. If they are not clear about refunds then it’s very risky.

It's the right decision, but this is going to be a very weird year.  No sport, no festivals, movies/TV being cancelled and delayed.

On the plus side, at least I can relax on 2021 ticket sale day. 
Only 460ish days to go...

Mate, next year won't go ahead. If I was you I'd request a refund and forget about it...

 

 

 

 

 

And that gives me one extra chance to get a resale ticket...

Gutted. But glad the decision has been made and we weren’t being led on with false hope.

I don’t crave fancy holidays, not bothered at all. Glasto is my everything and I’m only sad I didn’t discover it in my youth. Truely gutted it won’t happen this year, that was my ‘look forward to’ time marked on my calendar. 

Yes I know I’m being selfish, people are dying but to get through the daily grind sometimes I need a bit of a treat on the horizon,  what now footie and Glasto are gone. 😕

Good point. Will be interesting to see if it’s not too hot or too wet, but that elusive ‘just right’.

Exactly how I feel about Glasto. 
It’s my favourite 5 days of the year. The stress of everyday life once you get through those gates just disappears in that hazy Glasto bubble, where you don’t give a toss what’s happening outside of that fence.

Very well said and after the current goings on, where I get heaps of abuse every day for just doing my job from arsey customers, it was a little rainbow on the horizon. Never mind, it just wasn’t meant to be. I only need The Killers to inevitably cancel and I’m done. 🙁

I need new goals
