About this time every year, I muse on the fact I should have been courageous enough to get some tickets for the Glastonbury festival. And yet again, this year, time, money and lack of companions have conspired so I never got round to getting tickets. Although I am at least no longer a festival virgin. Huzzah.
However, with Glastonbury 2006 not happening, this basically means that if I want to pop my Glastonbury and festival camping virginity for Glastonbury 2007, I will be 33. Not a pretty age to be camping for the first time, never mind going to the festival. Damn. It was tricky enough trying not to look like a dull acccountant/geek at Download.
That is, if I can even get a ticket. If my lack of success at getting Live8 tickets are anything to go by, I’ll have to be a Oxfam festival steward. And I imagine an ignorance of all things camping is not going to go down well in that field.
Do they even allow newbie thirty-somethings with no camping experience to Glastonbury these days anyway? How easy is it to put up a tent these days?
