Want tickets? Just click F5 F5 F5 F5 F5 and then have a little cry.

1. So Glastonbury 2013 was a success wasn’t it?

2. But then out of the blue, you get THIS EMAIL.

3. It CAN’T be ticket day already surely? You were there just DAYS ago.

4. Or watching it on the iPlayer, of course.

5. So… it begins. You wake up at 8.30am ON A SUNDAY MORNING.

6. You find some computers and load the website.



9. …which you ignore. Instead, you launch 263 tabs.

11. THREE. TWO. ONE. HERE WE……. oh.

12. Maybe it’s just an error. You click refresh.

13. Lol jokes one more time.

14. It’s not getting to you or anything.

15. After half an hour of refreshing you get THIS.

This is handy considering that tickets went on sale half an hour ago.

22. And does it work for you?


23. It starts to get worse. Everyone starts tweeting that they have got tickets.

24. You? Nothing. You see dubious ticket ‘shortcuts’ on your twitter feed.

25. You click on all of them anyway. Does it work?

26. You aren’t annoyed by this at all.

27. You then see this. Time is slipping away.

28. Then suddenly, after your index finger falls off from pressing F5 every two seconds… you get there.

29. You lost your registration number, and your friends. You do a quick search round the house.

30. You find them. You enter them on to the page…… THEN THE PAGE TIMES OUT.

31. The inevitable.

33. You just can’t hate. You love them too much.

34. Well, bar See Tickets… who then shared this.
