Going for the sex and the drugs, the rock 'n' roll is a bonus: An E2 Glastonbury Gathering (idea)
Glastonbury 2003 : An Festivale
Glastonbury Festival. You know, muddiness, musicality and mayhem. All sorts of trippy new-age weirdness. Urban outdoorsmen. Travelers. Well-to-do students from the home-counties. Druids. Tents. Noders. Britnoders, no doubt. What more could you want?
Update: April 1, 2003... Blimey! Glastonbury 2003 has sold out in less that 24 hours! Tickets are going on ebay for up to a £1000 a pop. The world has gone stark, raving, bonkers. That nice Mr. Eavis has issued a statement indicating that tickets won't be officially issued until two weeks before the event. More as it happens.
Noders already going with friends try and meet up for at least one afternoon's worth of mini-meet.
Noders wanting company at the festival attach themselves to noders already going.
I am open to suggestions for a meet-up location and time, but recommend we meet somewhere central and easy to find, whilst it's still light. This is where organisation gets a bit tricky for me, since I've never actually been before. This is where you come in. I will be taking /msgs until much nearer the time.

The festival itself is outstandingly well covered at www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk. If you're wondering what to expect, pop along there first.
