Laughing out loud

Let me know if you're interested, Jo.


13.5k for something similar to that package.
Minus the helicopter ride (but access to the heli pad) and no limo back either.

However there’s a hairdresser available.

If someone was to develop a bot to get tickets of course it’s got commercial value.
Not for resale but just to secure tickets.

There are loads of ticket buying bots available, just wondered if there was any glasto specific ones.

I was under the impressions Glasto had a random queuing system where a bot is basically irrelevant?

There's bots for random access sites. Some even use a P2P system.

How would you develop a reliable Glastonbury bot if you can only test it for half an hour twice a year?

It would have to be an inside job.

Happy with it in general but the headliners are a real WTF!?

Looking forward to Streets, Wu Tang and Vampire Weekend.

The Killers are the only good ones on there !

Stormzy is the shittest thing ever in music up there with clean bandit etc but maybe worse. The cure just do any festival.

5-6 years ago I went and it was the stones and Arctic’s. Even if you don’t like either you can at least head down and appreciate seeing two of the biggest bands. Now it’s stormzy and the cure Laughing out loud

Glastonbury has a track record of hosting the world's biggest contemporary acts and older acts with deep historical relevance.

In comparison to previous years, it's apparent by anyone's measure that this year's headliners fall short of that benchmark.

I love Stormzy and The Cure but they're smaller stage acts.

I like the Cure Oops but not suggesting they are a headlining band there.

Agree they don't really have the cache, rarity and cross-over appeal one would expect. e.g Madonna, Fleetwood Mac or Led Zepplin which were rumoured.

I suppose I was asking more which modern act would be better (if Killers are even 'modern' still), as like jjj said who would be the current equivalent of Arctic Monkeys. The dull 1975 maybe Puzzled
