    I would say come January look daily for deals. Check everything from airlines directly to Orbitz/Expedia etc... The best deal can come from any place really so it's just a matter of exhausting every resource until you find the best deal.

    I have noticed that Dublin, Ireland is the cheapest place to fly into and RT flights from Dublin to London can pretty cheap as well, so if you don't mind a little extra time on the airplanes and such, it might be best to fly into the cheapest place in Europe and then over to London since you can always find cheap flights within europe.

    keep an eye on it. if you find a round trip for under $1000 don't wait. you may be lucky enough to find a round trip fare for as little as $800 (from SFO or LAX that is... if you are flying from elsewhere who knows).

    I notice airlines usually have a sale in spring. when I went to europe last year I bought my june flights in the beginning of march and got a round trip for $1040. then within a month of that united had a sale that would have saved me $100.

    Are there any good Glasto boards out there?
    All I found were some pretty sparse efstivals ones.

    Where do the Glasto people go to bitch about Uffie?

    Oh wait, I got them confused.

    it was Virtual Festivals that was sparse.

    Efests is pretty good.

    Thanks!

    Glastonbury 2010 sells out in 24 hours

    Tickets for the 40th anniversary of Glastonbury festival have sold out within a day of going on sale

    * Tim Jonze
    * guardian.co.uk, Monday 5 October 2009 11.00 BST
    * Article history

    Tickets for next year's Glastonbury festival have sold out in less than 24 hours. Those who registered for early tickets hit the phone lines yesterday (Sunday 4 October) to secure entrance to a festival that has yet to announce its lineup and is still nine months away.

    Last year's festival took several weeks to sell out, whereas Glastonbury 2008 didn't sell out until the day of the event itself thanks to poor weather in previous years. This year's swift sales will have been helped by rumours that the festival's 40th anniversary may draw some special headliners. U2, Radiohead and Beyoncé have all been rumoured, while organiser Michael Eavis has promised the lineup will include a band from each year of the festival's history. The success of Glastonbury 2009, which combined decent weather with big-name acts like Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young and Blur, will also have helped sales.

    Tickets for next year's event cost £185, an increase of £10 on this year. However, it was possible to secure tickets with a £50 deposit, with the full payment not due until 28 February 2010.

    Fans who don't have tickets shouldn't despair just yet – organisers say that a small number will become available in the coming weeks. Those who want a chance of buying them should register now at glastonburyregistration.co.uk.
    You know, I can actually see this happening. Beyonce would continue the tradition of the occasional controversial headliner, Radiohead's headlining sets were the stuff of legends and coming back for the anniversary would be extra special, and rumor has it U2 and the Rolling Stones were the two big bands Michael Eavis was talking to all the way back in June, so maybe.

    I can't believe how much airfare has gone up -- I've usually paid around $400-600 to go to London roundtrip (nonstop as well). I think I'll wait it out a bit....

    So I guess Zane Lowe says headliners will be U2, Muse & Kasabian while Steve Lamacq says it will be The Rolling Stones, David Bowie and Coldplay. Hopefully David Bowie is the only correct guess. Well, I guess I'd settle for U2 too.

    Kasabian doesn't sound much like a 40th anniversary headliner to me. That'd be a letdown. Despite hating on the Stones last night, I'd love those three headliners.

    Kasabian? Jesus christ. I don't care about the headliners per se anyway. I just need a few acts on each day is all. There is so much to do there I can find something to do during Coldplay if need be.

    the 40th Ann should make all British acts bury their hatchets out of a sense of National Duty.

    Kinks
    Pulp
    Suede
    Stone Roses
    (Zombie) T Rex
    (Zombie) Sweet
    The Smiths (taze Moz if he acts like a cunt)
    And so forth.

    I may reconsider my ignore of you. Though I've heard (and by heard, I mean, have obsessively scoured live recordings and have come to the conclusion) that the Stone Roses are really terrible live.

    Yeah, but I figure bad Stone Roses might well be better than no Stone Roses.

    If some of the headliners leak or are announced before the cancellation deadline, some will cancel their tickets because they don't like them.

    And £43.50 for a coach from London and back. So around $70 right now...not bad. I say we all take the 7am coach to the festival.

    Anyone worrying that they might not get the headliners they want - don't worry. When you get there, you'll realize it doesn't matter.

    Based on Boourns thread, it sounds like I might not ever find out where the main stage is anyway

    Fairly sure that was just reporting the bookmakers favourites, rather than any actual info.

    And they're not that confident they're right either:

    "We have lost a few quid on the headline act for two years running and it will be interesting to see if punters get it right again," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.

    Some photos of mine. These are a few from during the build - ten days before the gates open.


    A fellow crew member's family chill out in front of the main stage.




    Michael, on good form, at our crew meeting on the front lawn. He has a perenially sunny demeanor, and for many fans of the festival, is almost god.




    Inside the cowshed, next to the farmhouse, which overlooks the Pyramid stage. The cows do actually stand out at the back and watch some of the bands. The BBC sometimes zooms in on the them. Apparently, over the years, Primal Scream was their favourite.




    This is the pump room for the new underground one million litre £500,000 reservoir, new this year. One of the largest private drinking water facilities in the UK. The aim is to eliminate the use of water tankers. It's a geeky thing I know, but the infrastructure of the site is immense, and yet almost invisible.




    Me, main stage. Dreaming. Shortly before we decamped to the pub.

    You guys are going to have to stop posting pictures. It's 8+ months away. I do not need to build any more excitement right now.

    If you haven't already, you should check out the Glastonbury doc from 2006
    I have the DVD and have watched it countless times

    It features this little slice of sublime happy....

    So does Glastonbury have electronic music? I didn't read anything in your story about it.
