It's a nightmare but its worth it. Best festival I've been to without question.

Anyone know if there is a difference between using 2 devices and just opening more tabs?

Best bet is probably to use multiple internet connections e.g. If you have a laptop and 2 phones:
Laptop on wifi
Phone 1 on 4G
Phone 2 on 4G

They probably filter out some of your attempts from the same IP.

If using phone/tablet, make sure you turn off the auto-sleep setting and low power mode. And try not to switch between too many apps as the device might re-direct memory to other apps and your browser could stop refreshing in the background, thus you could fall out of queue and have to start again.

Thanks for that, very helpful. Do you reckon it's best to refresh yourself or allow it to do it for you automatically every 20 seconds?

Hammer F5 but don't bother with multiple tabs.

Responses will be limited per IP.

Apparently vpn’ing to another country gives you a much better chance

Dunno about that but it would certainly give you another IP.

Ideally every device you try on needs a different IP.

Just booked this for January, just so happened to be in LA for a couple of weeks. Ronson / Q Tip set will be epic. Been to Coachella 3 times, so will make a nice change
