Chiapet just do the deposit.
That way if you decide not to go youre only out 10 pounds

Why don't you all make like a tree and get chopped down and die. You all have been dreadfully mean to me.
I Hate you. All of you. None of you will ever get to see a womans chest meat or finger blast hott cougies like me.
Fuck you all. Consider this my resignation.

Hrmmm I skimmed too quickly and didn't even notice the deposit option or the cancellation option. That makes things quite a bit different, thanks for pointing that out.
Oh one note about purchasing via See tickets -- every time I've purchased tickets from them, of any amount, on any credit or debit card, the transaction has gotten flagged for potentially fradulent activity and did not go through until I called my credit card issuer. You might want to call your CC company beforehand to let them know you'll be putting through a charge to See.
Edit: this was for the US folks obviously. Buying concert tickets in another country is see as a high risk (for fraud) purchase.
The upside of rail is that it's about two hours from London, and although you may have some queueing for departure at Paddington, once you're on you are guaranteed a seat.
When you get to the other end, there's an element of luck with the shuttle buses. You can jump on one, and be straight to the festival in 20 minutes, or wait an hour or two because they are all stuck in queues (as happened this year on the Wednesday).
Here's what I'd do:
- Aim to arrive in London on Tuesday morning, or earlier. Pick up things like a tent there. Much better value than on site.
- That afternoon, Train to Bristol, bus to Glastonbury Town. Or train to Castle Cary, taxi to Glastonbury Town.
- Camp in a pre-booked campsite there, e.g. Isle of Avalon.
- Bus to festival site first thing Wednesday. Research this in advance - you'll need to know where it will go from, times etc. Locals on the ground probably won't know, transport arrangements change every year.
Doing that means you should be able to avoid the queues which will build up during the first day. Normally they aren't so bad, but this year 100k turned up on Wednesday, rather than the usual 60k. Everything got overloaded - roads, gates, everything.
The time to really start thinking about all this is around mid March. It's then that the rail fares and times start to get published. It's also possible that details of things like the Glastonbury Town shuttle might be known.
who else is aiming to buy tickets on oct 4th?
it may be worth co-ordinating so that the first person through can get tickets for the entire group. what has been suggested to me is that ahead of the on-sale we exchange registration numbers. approaching the on-sale we all get into a chat room. once one person is through they can let the others know and buy tickets for the entire group.
this requires a level of trust, obviously, so I wouldn't group people together that weren't comfortable with it. is anyone interested in doing that? who else is actually planning to buy tickets?
That sounds like a wild and crazy idea. You can count me in. I feel like I cant even begin to imagine how insane its going to be to get tix
Not to mention the fact that its going to be 4am, with me still high of my killers show like 5 hours prior
