Guest's review of Glastonbudget

★☆☆☆☆

“Great Idea, poorly executed.”

Written on: 30/05/2013

A festival consisting with only tribute acts sounds like a great idea, it didn't seem this way once we were inside the shoddily erected, poorly guarded fences.
Our first mistake was assuming that this ever growing festival would accept card payments for tickets, they did not. We were then advised to go to the local village to use their cash point... but there was no cash point. The nearest cash point was in Keyworth which is about 5 miles away, but the festival staff advised us we could walk there in 25 minutes.
The bands and the toilets were really good, the campsite was horrible and badly guarded, many tents were broken in to and robbed. Its really the poorly informed and unhelpful staff that really let this festival down.
I heard that a Saturday ticket was £57, it's called glastonBUDGET!!!

Next time we all decided we'd spend a tiny bit more and go to a real festival... one that accepts card payments.

If the lack of card payments was one of the worst things about GB13 then they must be doing a lot of things right!

half of this review complains about stuff that the writer should've sorted out. Why is paying by card so important? you assumed wrongly, and you didn't bring enough cash, that's the real problem here.

Who leaves valuables in a festival tent? You can't blame the festival for your own lack of experience. there was a huge amount of positive available at the festival, but if you and your friends sat there in a stink all weekend then you've only got yourselves to blame.
