Hey has anyone been to Glastonbury?? I'm gonna be in Europe in June/July and want to know if it's worth it. Is it dangerous, are there fights, etc or is it just a whole lot of fun. Any info would be helpful. thanks. Oh and are the tickets expensive???:)

Haven't been myself, but I've never heard of fights happening. Probably drunkenness, but generally good natured I think!

I went in 95.. a long while ago but loads of my friends have been since.. some with their families too.

I don't think you get many (if any) fights and it's certainly not dangerous, it's mostly full of all kinds of people just there to have a good time and see loads of great bands and it is a great weekend.

I would check their website out as this year you had to pre-register for tickets in January. You got a registered number and when tickets were released in April you had to quote this number. You could not book tickets if you didn't have this number. In addition to that you have to have your photo on the ticket so you need to send a photo with your application which you can do on line, this photo on the ticket is to prevent the tickets being sold on.

I think tickets are around £160 for the whole event with camping.

Hope this helps

I went in 2005 and last year. Haven't seen a fight yet. Its about 150 quid as sophie said and you definitley need to be on the ball to get tickets as they sell out in about 2 hours.

All in all its well worth the money and I'd recommend it to anyone. My tip would be to arrive early on wednesday if you can and stay till monday. You'll love it!!

If you are going to be in Europe in June/July and want to go to an amazing festival I would recommend Exit Festival in Serbia! I went two years ago and it is by a long way the best festival I have ever been to! And its cheap too. The tickets are about £50ish, the beer is cheap and the food is cheap and best of all....the sun is shining!
