I imagine a fair few have been crouched over their keyboards this morning as the ticket lottery for next year went online at 9am.

I am in the lucky, stress free position of having a perennial job there, so no worries here (he said, smugly).

So who got tickets?

Failed this year, oh well.

Clashes with Euro 24, of course, which will be annoying IF England do well.

What’s this Glastonbury you refer you? I heard it was something to do with songs from the hit parade?

Didn't bother. It's got so big now that it no longer has what made it special. Just another bucket list item for many now. Shame, there was nothing quite like it up until around 10 years ago.

It may or may not have been better ten years ago.

In my opinion there is still nothing quite like it. It's my favourite week of the year and remains incredibly special to me.

And line-up isn’t very good, I’m not into Taylor Swift and Harry Styles.

(Ignoring the fact there’s 598 other acts on over the 4-5 days)

How did you get them on Thursday?
Coach tickets! It was the quickest I've been able to snag tickets before, bought within 5 minutes of the queue opening.

I see a lot of moaning online this year about people part of groups that were able to get through several times and buy tens of tickets. It seems like it you got through once it was quite likely you would get through again. Also others who seem to be able to do some shenanigans by pointing their browser at a specific seetickets IP address and get straight through to the purchase page over and over again.

Not sure how you would possibly make it fairer though, I'd be interested in seeing how a lottery system could work but I think overall the current system that rewards preparation and persistence is preferable. They need to iron out any kinks in the system that allows people to bypass the queue though.
