9 Things To Do While Your Friends Are At Glastonbury Festival
We wish we were there :(
It's that time of year again where everyone and their mums managed to get a Glastonbury ticket. Everyone except you.
Although this is probably the most gutting thing to ever happen to you, it will all be okay. We promise.
To help you get through this tough time we've put together a list of things you can do while you're friends are having the time of their lives at Worthy Farm.
We're not that bitter at all, honestly.
1. Watch All The Highlights On TV
There's one way you can feel like you haven't missed one of the best weekends in the whole of festival season and that's by catching up on all the highlights. The BBC always have amazing coverage of the whole of the festival, including performances from all the headliners. You'll just be on your sofa instead of in a field, that's all.
2. Or Avoid All Coverage
Alternatively you can completely avoid all media coverage of the festival and pretend it isn't happening.
3. Hang Out With Other Friends Who Missed Out On Tickets
We're all up for supporting one another through the Glastonbury blues so why not hang out with the others suffering from major FOMO as well.
4. Camp In Your Back Garden
To get that truly authentic festival feeling why not pitch up a tent in your back garden and crack open a slightly warm beer.
5. Close Your Eyes And Listen To Adele
Chuck 25 on repeat, close your eyes and imagine a field, and you're basically there. Okay so there won't be the same in-between-song banter Adele is known for in her live shows but you win some, you lose some.
6. Have Multiple Showers Just Because You Can
Just like Niall in our favourite GIF on the planet, you too can have an amazing time in a WARM SHOWER! We would suggest having as many as possible to rub it in the faces of all the muddy people with questionable hygiene down on Worthy Farm. Ha! Suckers...
7. Eat Food That Doesn't Cost Your Entire Month's Wages
Festival food is basically daylight robbery. Who in their right mind would pay £10 for some soggy cheesy chips? Desperate people, that's who! Well, because you're not going, you can enjoy your favourite Tesco ready meal for a fraction of the cost, and you'll be more full than those spending their entire month's pay check on food.
8. But Still Cry Because You're Not There
Okay, this is the point where you have a major reality check and despite all of our helpful distraction methods you're still not at Glastonbury having the time of your life. It's okay, let all of those tears out.
9. Write An Action Plan To Ensure You Get Tickets Next Year
And last but by no means least, turn all of this sad, negative energy into something positive and plan how you're going to get your hands on a ticket next year.
