    Meh, no line up confirmed, I wouldn’t even think about buying a ticket until I knew who was playing.

    It's not about the line up surely? I go for the crack but also I stumble on great bands that aren't on the main stages. I love the whole experience. Every year I find something new :)

    That's a long answer, to keep it short, it's not really my thing.... 
    The first time I went, I was a punter. There were 20,000 of us. It was a CND festival, it felt good, it was 1983.

    I went once. In 1995 but the grass got all wiggly at night and a puppet dancing in a strobe light showered me with shining crystals.
    The whole thing was like a medieval battle encampment and I bought a hand painted lightbulb.

  • My favourite week of the year. There is nowhere that compares to it. No ticket so far, fingers crossed again in April.

    I first went in 1984. Tickets were £14. I remember the furore when the tickets for '85 were announced at £17.
    My wife asked me to stop singing Wonderwall.
    I said maybe.....

    Never fancied it. Too many Guardian-reading show offs stroking their beards and eulogising how wonderful the experience is.

    I can’t fathom the idea of committing before you know who’s actually going to be playing.  I guess you just roll the dice, pray it’s not going to be someone dreadful, and flip them if it turns out to be a terrible lineup.

    I'd say the seventh circle of hell is a fair comparison.

    Nuke the place from orbit, its the only way to be sure.

    Hmmm I'm not sure you guys are getting the gist of it all. It really is the experience rather than just the line up. I'm not a guardian reader by the way lol

    Sleeping in tents surrounded by pissed rich people, wading through mud, not showering for three days, shitting in a hole in the ground, queuing for a week to get in/out.

    Yep. It certainly sounds like an experience.

    Blimey nothing like that. Not from what I've seen anyway.

    I think it's about 25 years since I went but even then I wasn't bothered about the headliners ( Shakespeare's Sister FFS)and quickly realised you make your own Glastonbury because there are so many things happening you create your own itinerary. 
    If you watch the main TV coverage it does it a bit of a disservice as it presents the main bands and it looks like it is all about cheering Dolly Parton but even just getting into what they usually have on iPlayer it's much wider than this and even that only skims the surface. 
    The faff and the expense now means it's a non starter for me but it's certainly an experience. 
    Even if the headliners were announced beforehand and it was someone I was a big fan of in practice I'm probably better off seeing them elsewhere in concert conditions with their own partisan crowd. 
    Dum dum dum, dum dum de dum, dum dum dum, dum dummmm.

    I went in 2003, as my wife wanted to go. Maybe 2004 - which ever year was Radiohead.

    I don;t see what the fuss is all about, I've been to far better festivals but without the smug self satisfaction and much much better music.

    am going, mainstage(s) acts is a lottery I agree, but usually same as most other festivals for any given year. It's the 14 other stages where the uniqueness and good stuff is.
    Imagine something sharp and witty here ......

    I've always wanted to go but I've never booked a festival ticket without knowing who's playing .... I get the whole festival experience and all that but part of that is knowing your gonna be enjoying a band you love alongside 100, 000 like minded people as well as the craic of camping and nosing around all the stands and small stages 
    I really enjoyed Rambling Man this year .... weather was superb, all the stages had shit hot sound, didn't have to stand in line for half an hour to get a beer or have a piss. Camping was well thought out and effortless. 
    Victorious festival is great as well ... I can ride to it in half an hour and bury by alcohol stash a couple of weeks before they fence everything off so it's just a £45 ticket which for all the bands on offer is quite a good deal.

    Glastonbury is one of the few you can bring your own booze to, bars and toilets everywhere. Gets bonkers when the main stages have a changeover, but easily avoided

  • I went in 2000 as one of the last of the gatecrashers - it was so easy to climb over the fence. You could also pay someone a tenner to let you through a hole they had made in the fence! There were 250,000 there and only 100k tickets sold.  It was ridiculously full, a lot of dodgy people around and did not feel safe so it had to change. There were no gaps between any of the tents and it took about an hour or two to get from one stage to the other. I've enjoyed other festivals more, my memories are vague but seeing Bowie was amazing. I prefer smaller festivals now, eg Greenman, Festival 6.

    Supernormal is my festival of choice, if going outdoors.
