So it's the ticket resale on Sunday. Completely failed last time...
Need to get 4 tickets. Anyone got any tips?
pre load the website & log in before tickets go live to make sure you get as much of the site in you cache as possible to prevent the likelyhood of the server timing out.
Make sure that any p2p programs are shut down to help decrease your ping, ever milisecond could be the difference between hitting the server when it's responding and not responding.
But most of all, it's down to luck and reloading as often as possible.
Have been the last 6 festivals and it's all through pressing f5 lots. I very rarely fail to get tickets for anything so there's a method in the mentalism. All I can say is good luck
while at the same time friends failed over their home internet.
so: turn off your wifi on your smartphone and give it a go over 3g if you're struggling.
Ping too high? You're fucked.
if you have an ethernet cable it might even be worth considering that option as opposed to wi-fi
add it to your /etc/hosts file (if you use Apple then sod ya), restart your browsers / machine and you'll bypass the DNS servers.
if it ain't got that ping
Getting tickets in the main sale was a fucking nightmare, so I can only imagine how ghastly this one will be.
some people post the direct link to ticket sales
Unless you want coach travel as well.
Everyone I was trying for has tickets now though, so thankfully I can abandon this hell for another six months.
all 8 of us managed to get coach tickets up there. I got my group's in the first 10 minutes, and the other guys had to wait till past 11/
some 2 hours after the resale started. Was just on the verge of giving up, so was a nice surprise.
