AT&T Motorola thingy?

Well it would depend on which model Motorola, but I think you're fine. All the ones they sell right now (via AT&T) would work, and as I mentioned, the RAZRs that almost everyone has work.

If you bring a GSM phone (AT&T or T-Mobile) and put an Orange SIM in, you should have no problem at all.

so is getting an orange sim in the uk going to give me more reliable service than using my at&t sim and connecting to the orange network??


If you want to meet up with people you aren't travelling/camping with, the best thing to do is arrange in advance a time and place.

well you say that can be tricky... and it's going to be even more tricky since we don't get a schedule until we arrive, and most of us haven't been before.

The phone then works all over Europe pretty much including Ireland and the UK. Text messages are .50 to send and .05 cents to receive. The rate is .99 cents a minute.

Ya, that is only necessary if your phone does not support international roaming (ie, roaming on a different band than is used in the US). My rate for int'l roaming in most countries is $0.99/min with the phone I have.

We were talking about pre-paid SIMs that you would buy for say $30 and upwards which would come with a certain number of minutes (probably at least 200 min for $30). ~$0.15/min. It might be worth it for those of us who are planning on going early or staying past Glastonbury.

FWIW, the last time I was in Europe for just a short time, and only used my phone for a couple of minutes at a time, my phone bill was like $300 :D

Edited because my reply didn't make sense. :)

If you connected to Orange your service should be just as reliable with people using Orange SIMs.

Well, if people are worried about meeting up for certain sets, I'd propose.... provided people are getting there reasonably early on Wednesday, walk around together to check out the festival site, and pick a landmark near each stage, where you'll meet for the sets you want to watch together.

And text messages being delayed an hour or two doesn't work very well. This is what happens to me every year at Coachella. It's just enough that every attempt I make to meet up with people fails. It's a constant stream of texts about where people were an hour or so ago, but no longer are.

Meeting up tips summarised:

1. Get an Orange SIM. If you bring a US carrier SIM, you can't be guaranteed to connect to Orange, even if O2 etc are busy. (They can often take the call/ text, but not complete the connect/deliver the text straight away. You end up on voicemail, or your text ends up in the pile to be delivered.)

2. If you are mainly using texts, and they are delayed, make a 'dummy' voice call. (Sometimes text messages won't get delivered because of bad luck in the periodic polling. But when you get a voice connect, the server knows it can deliver outstanding texts using the sms data channel, right away.)

3. Renting a phone? Try to get one as basic as possible, for max battery life.

4. If you are camping together, you can pre-plan some meets. Probably the most popular is late afternoon, e.g 5pm, at the Cider Bus, which is very handy for the Pyramid.

Other good places around the site:

- Other Stage Info Point (bar is next door)

- Main bar in the Dance Village (called 'Union Local'. Good for Dance stages and John Peel).

- The hillside above The Park. Big space but easy to see people walking up the hill. Amazing views - highest on site.

- The Tiny Tea Tent (main drag entrance to Green Fields, also handy for Jazz World. No alcohol sold there, but 'District Six' bar is only few minutes away).

- The Avalon Inn (good for grouping up before going into the late night area, which is v.difficult to meet up inside later on).

5. Avoid reaaaaally obvious ones. e.g. "In Front of the Mixing Desk, at the Pyramid". When its busy, this sort of thing is a fail recipe.

I don't drink very much normally, but my sib and I once demolished sixth keg of cider in less than a weekend. Granted it was not a full keg, but that's still like 50 ciders. We ran out, despaired, and fortunately someone went out to buy us more. ;)

I don't know. My brother is actually the one who put me on to cider. He hates beer. (I wasn't a fan of beer at the time... the Midwest US was a barren place for beers). It's what we have to drink when we're not looking to get wildly intoxicated in a very short span of time.

Right now we are considering flying into Bristol instead of London, know of any advantages/ disadvantages to this idea? It looks like me and Zoie are goingvto try and meet up in the us then fly overseas. I am in tx and she is in Alabama. I possibly should fly there the day before. Seems easier than meeting in another airport. Still contemplating ideas.

shakermaker113
10-29-2009, 08:53 AM
smaller airports are usually much less hassle. if you can find a reasonably priced flight I'd say go for it. are there flights direct from the US to bristol?

the only real disadvantage, for this trip, is that london seems to have all sorts of organized transport from london direct to glastonbury. then again I'd be surprised if bristol didn't have anything organized...

rideincircles
10-29-2009, 10:22 AM
Based on checking today. Dfw to Bristol is 1600, dfw to London is 1300 or so, Houston to London is 1100 with plenty of nonstops. Looks like 4 hour drive to Houston then fly out is best option. Gonna try and get Zoie to fly into dfw day before using miles she has.

Not really. Jimmy Page said they weren't trying out any more lead singers and even if they did say "hey we are officially done" that doesn't rule anything out. You're not new to music, so you should know it means nothing. Hell just last year Faith No More was telling everyone the rumors of them getting back together were false. How did that turn out?

Yep.


"If anything like this were to happen, it would have to come from the band, and I haven't spoken with any of them in over a year. So as far as I know, there isn't anything to talk about, and I'm pretty sure that if you were to contact Patton, he would tell you the same thing"

with the U2 NA/Canada tour being both sides of glastonbury, I'd love to see Thom Yorke's reaction if they decided to ship their monstrosity all the way across the atlantic and back just for glasto.

Axe Foo Fighters, Dave is busy with Them Crooked Vultures, Nate Mendel will not be finished touring with Sunny Day Real Estate at that time. U2 strictly solo shows.

Word is The Wall is a go, but (like in 80) they are staging it like a musical: multiple nights in maybe 8 cities worldwide. It's a very expensive show to put on. They actually LOST money in 80 and they sold out every night.

Jarvis 'to consider' Pulp reunion

(UKPA) – 34 minutes ago

Jarvis Cocker has sparked rumours of a Pulp reunion, saying he'll "think about it a little bit more".

Although Jarvis dismissed rumours Pulp would be performing at next year's Glastonbury Festival, he admitted the furore surrounding these allegations caught his imagination.

He told this week's NME: "I suppose it made me think a little bit - the fact that people did seem interested, that made me think about it a little bit more."

HB, I saw Stevie a year ago at Shoreline. I was about as far back as you could get in the lawn and he was still incredible. He still sounds amazing, looked good, banters through his set. Even at the back of the lawn, people were up and dancing through most of the set.

He was hilarious. I can't remember what song it was, but introducing one of the songs, at the piano, he was going on about "How many men out there tonight have used my songs to get a woman into bed?" "Oh yea, I've done it too." "Just kidding, I'm Stevie Wonder, I don't have to work at getting women into bed." etc.

Also his daughter was there and sang with him which was pretty cool.

Edited, here is the setlist from that show:

3. get from dublin to bristol somehow, the choices seem to be: a. fly (boring but reliable) b. ferry/train/cab/walk/hike from dublin to holyhead to glasto...(way less boring, but it seems so many places for it to go wrong...)

Joel is now looking at meeting up with his Glastonbury Twitter group and won't be with us either but he's not 100% sure on that.

I honestly can't even plan too much about this event yet. I have to at least get to the end of January first. I've had a lot going on lately and I may be reconsidering and hitting up some countries I have never seen and some smaller festivals. It's just too early for me to know. I don't plan on getting any airline tickets for travel to Europe until February or so though so there is time for me to figure this all out I suppose.

His glastonbury twitter group? are you serious? how is some twitter group better than the coachella goddamn message board?


Apparently it's completely possible to drive from Wales to Ireland:

That's like an exaggerated version of the Dukes of Hazzard episodes where they drive from Ohio to West Virginia without going over the Ohio River. :)

My itinerary:
1. Fly into London and arrive Monday morning.
2. Spend a day in London resting, shopping, recovering from jet lag.
3. Leave Tuesday to go to Glasto village.
4. Spend the night there.
5. GLASTONBURY!
6. Back to London.
7. Fly home the next day.

Can't afford to do anything more :(

It's odd. Me and my other roommate Cesar laugh about his twitter obsession quite a bit. He claims to have tweated back and forth with Rodrigo of Rodrigo y Gabriela about soccer and Trent Reznor. His Glasto twitter group is apparently always tweating and discussing things so I guess he found another E-Outlet to make friends. Either way, he had some sort of plan to do this at Bonnaroo but it all fell through so who knows. :)

That's most likely what I will be doing if I can pull it off. I'm glad my deposit doesn't have to be paid in full until the end of February though, it gives me time to see what happens between now and then regarding artists and other festival dates and leaks.

So far i'm definite for Coachella and Sasquatch next year though.

Which scheduled bus do I take from Bristol? Yeah, a taxi would be way too expensive unless several of us are taking the same train and split the cost.

The bus is the 376 run by First Group. They're roughly hourly, and the last one leaves from just by the railway station at 22.20 ish.

The full timetable is here:

http://www.firstgroup.com/ukbus/southwest/bristol/timetables/timetable.php?day=1&source_id=2&service=376&routeid=771331&operator=3&source=sp


Note for others: The above applies if you are going to Glastonbury Town, before the festival opens. If you are travelling to the festival directly, once it has opened, there will be options to travel the festival site directly from Bristol. The Town is not near the festival site!



Actually I was thinking of going Dublin -> Cardiff but Bristol is pretty close too.

Unless you specifically want to see Cardiff, flying into Bristol is much easier in terms of onward travel either to Glastonbury Town, or the festival site.

Taxi. Or there are buses. We'll figure it out.

Edited: I think if we're up and on our way very early (which we already promised to do for the lodging), we'll be fine, since other people will still be traveling in to the area.

There was a climate activist camp in London a few months back, pitched up for a week. She came along and played on the Saturday night. Barely visible (low energy stage!), but sounded lovely. It was very odd to be camping in London, illegally, with all these like minded people.

Wafts of wood smoke, and Emmy singing "Halleluja" are imprinted on my mind.

Nothing wrong with them, I just don't see what would be so exciting about them being a headliner considering they have just toured every damn city across Europe and America this year. I could also care less about most of their work from the last 15 years though Vertigo was a fantastic single.

Most of the acts playing Glasto will have done the same thin you mentioned, so whats the difference? Also, the sheer thought of it happening when they had pretty clearly stated no festivals is shocking. I wonder if they could bring the claw for this, it could be in its own corner for the weekend.....

again, it is well known that glasto doesn't pay up for headliners. try to keep up, supredouche.

"We can't pay them millions, the big commerical festivals pay headliners three or four million, we can only pay them 200,000 so why should they do it?" he explained. "The reason is that it's good for them, their record sales and their image, and it's good for us and the charities we support. It's a delicate balance between commercial pressures of headliner acts. It's a very difficult position, but we're doing well with what we had."

Probably obvious to everyone, but like other festivals' main stages, there's no full on custom set builds.

The headliner gets to install their custom kit during the previous night. That is then winched down and/or activated in the gap before their set the following evening.

This means it's limited to a lighting rig and backdrop (e.g. video panels). Occasionally acts bring pyros which are launched from behind the Pyramid. MacCartney's, for Live and Die, were particularly impressive.

Other than that though, it's the Pyramid. So it does indeed put more emphasis on the performance. I expect U2 will work their assess off. It's their first ever shot at Glastonbury, and could well be their only one, barring a 'heritage act' booking many years from now.
