    Default The Official 2010 Glastonbury Coachella Board Meetup

    I figured this thread should be made so Boourns thread can live a happy clutter free life.

    So, who is all going to put down the deposit in a few weeks? Who all plans on attending and what will it depend on. Lets start some early planning.

    THE LIST

    Boourns
    Shakermaker113
    Chiapet
    faxman75
    Joel
    HandBanana
    TicklemeElmo

    Count me in for now. Still need to register but I have full intentions of attending and the only issue for me is money. Flying anywhere from Alaska is expensive.

    Registered today. Tix go on sale in 2 weeks, so you might want to get your registrations done. Planning to do Glasto, then hop in a car and drive straight to Roskilde, which kicks off 3 days later.

    Lots of time to wait for airfare deal Blinken. I'm registered and hope to put down the deposit.

    I'm confident we will find RT airfare for around $900. I wanted to tell Amy in the other thread that 5K is a ridiculous cost. So Zizzzles, when you read this, understand you can do this entire thing for 2K or less.

    Default Re: The Official 2010 Glastonbury Coachella Board Meetup

    Yeah, my 5k figure included all the time in Prague, London, Brighton, etc.

    Current estimates for me for 2010:
    Roundtrip from LAX: $1200
    Glasto ticket: $300
    National Express coach: $85
    two nights in London hostels: $90
    misc. busfare/airport transfers: $10
    tent: $80
    sleeping bag/blanket/pillow (optional...I did without any of these the entire weekend but don't want to do that again): $30
    wellies: $18
    food/drink/souvenirs: $400
    flashlight: just bring one from home. camp is not generally as well lit as Coachella and if you arrive after dark, you will need a strong one to set up your tent, and to find it at the end of the night if it isn't in an obvious, easy even when exhausted/drunk/high to find location
    batteries: ($12 if you bring them from home, $30 if you don't, $25 if you bring some but not enough to last the whole trip and have to buy more)
    alcohol/drugs: no idea, a LOT

    Also, if you don't have a passport, get working on that right away. Don't do what I did and run around at the last minute to get every piece of bullshit the LA Federal Building demanded in order to give my my expedited passport in time (birth certificate, $170, proof of purchased flight). And I'm lucky because if I wasn't in LA, getting a passport in two weeks would have been much more difficult.

    That's relieving to hear. Kinda hoping this trip isn't gonna cost me an arm and a leg. I plan on being in and out for Glasto unfortunately. Roskilde sounds tempting though...

    My passport was renewed last month so i'm gold there. I just need to put down my deposit and then look at airfare.

    Question. If you don't buy the tickets when the full amount is due, do they refund or keep the deposit?

    What was the lineup this past year? Roskilde seems to have better lineups the past couple years

    Why do you think you know me? For christs sake as much as I post I would think you would know by now. I'm not going to Bonnaroo next year. It's either Glastonbury or S. Africa. Both are in the summer. Also, everything went right this year for Roo and that won't happen again but maybe if the same crew goes again in 2011 I will consider. Chances are Roo will never have a lineup with my two favorite bands again though so i'm not too concerned.

    Pay the fuck attention next time.

    Chris, we know you aren't going to Glasto. Please leave the thread. Shyguy at least had brains to delete his post in this thread. You should follow suit.

    i deleted it? interesting.

    i still stand by my assessment that your life outside of this board is minimal. going to great lengths to change that would be beneficial for all.

    So can we get a formal headcount on the first page. Separate lists for maybes and definites, plus ones when applicable, etc.

    Count me as a maybe. I will try for a ticket on Sunday. but it will be difficult to gather the funds required for the whole trip. Still, better try just in case. And if I can go to Glasto, it almost certainly means no Coachella. So yeah, if Coachella looks like my sig, so much for Glasto, but if not, it's either off to Glasto or staying around for Coachella, depending on what's in the piggy bank.

    Is everyone getting teepees or roughing it in tents, and if so, where? If you want to be centrally located, I recommend Pennard Hill, which requires getting there hella early. If you want to be near the coach entrance/exit, the field next to the Peel Tent is good.

    Fire up your google earth:

    This has all been posted before, but might as well bring it here for convenience.

    Hey Frank, why don't you just invest in one of those hand crank flashlights that have ports to recharge phones, etc.

    I wonder if they do an adult version of this? If so, I'll be bringing mine to Glasto.
