Glastonbury Forum : News Items

  Posted By king mob - 11-October-2009 - 1:08pm - 3 comments - Edit

People eager to get to Glastonbury Festival will now be able to arrive a night earlier as the festival's car parks will open from Tuesday night.

Michael Eavis said he hoped the move would prevent the 20-mile tailback which was seen on the first day of the festival this year.

Festival-goers will not be allowed on site however due to the restrictions on the licence.

Portable toilets and stalls would be put up while people wait.

Eavis said although people would have to sit in their cars and wait, it would be better than "being lined up by the side of the road for six hours".

The festival would also like more people to travel there by public transport as it saves "a hell of a lot of traffic and saves a lot of space".

Of the festival's 1,000 hectares (2,470 acres), 200 hectares (500 acres) are taken up by car parks.

Festival competition

Although Eavis would not reveal who the headline acts are set to be, he did disclose that they would be "traditional headliners".

He added that he sees other festivals such as Reading and V as competitors as "they can pay them more and we can't afford it".

"We can't afford to spend 2m on a headliner because it wouldn't work. There's no way that we could run this show paying those sorts of fees," he said.

"Bands have never charged me the full whack - even with Bruce Springsteen, I told him what I can afford so he agreed to it and didn't try to beat me up on the price.

"They understand what's going on as we don't have houses in the Bahamas, we don't have holidays even so we don't go swanning around the world in E-type Jags.

"We're down-to-earth farming people and we get on with the work. We're not ripping anyone off, basically."

I do like this idea, though if the weather's anything like 2004, it's going to be a grim wait in the carpark.

Hmmm Car park or full moon???? decisions, decisions

Full Moon! Then we can have  return to our traditional pre-Glasto piss-up. Though if you do stay we should leave really early and try to get onsite by 10-11 am.
