so this is probably a stupid question but registering and winning would just get me the 1 ticket right?
do you mean for standard applications?
you register now, then in april on the morning they come out, you hit F5 for an hour or so and if you get on the page, you can get upto 4 registered peoples tickets
if you register, you only register for yourself
it goes into a lottery thing though...yes?
kids don't need tickets though do they?
everyone who registers can buy a ticket...if they get through on the website or phones before they sell out. They're just sold on a first come first served basis like any other tickets really.
you can buy up to 4 tickets. it's not a lottery system, the registration system is so that nobody who has not registered can buy tickets
you have to register ALL names of people who want to go. then, the day the tickets go on sale, you can buy them (last year it was up to 4 per booking). i THINK kids go free, but i'd check on the website
thank you :)
most also be registered I think.
and it's not 'winning' - everyone who registers has the opportunity to press F5 for 24 hours straight on the day tickets go on sale.
I'm using last years rules.
he might dispose of the horrible people one at a time. You'll be left at the end and will inherit the whole festival.
its the same as last year except I think there is a bigger proportion of tickets for sale over the phone (to registered people).
At the minute I'm going to buy a DS and not a ticket to Glasto...
And by rights I should still be going free anyway!
bringing in alottery system but I' pretty sure it's not happening this year.
What would be the point in saying that he wants young people at the festival again and then announcing Jay-Z as a headliner 'for the kids' if the tickets could end up going to anyone?
they are checking every single registration photo so that they can have an ethically diverse young audience and calling it a lottery system.
black up, Al Jolson style, I'll stand more of a chance of getting a ticket?
Obvious drawback in this plan is I'll have to arrive at the festival looking the same as the picture on my ticket.
of having to go to the hell hole.
I won't watch Jay-Z, probs.
But then, I'm not a kid, probably...
the registration period end this year?
like last year, having solved the problem, they will extend it for a week to get more people in the scrum, and harder for those that adhered by the rules.
