Hi there,

I'm brand-new to this site so forgive me if I do things a little wrong...

Basically, I'm in a bit of a dilemma. I would LOVE to go to Glastonbury next year. #1 ambition of all time. The unfortunate thing is I am 17 (coming 18) and still living with my parents who are quite against me going unless I go with a group of friends. None of my friends are interested in going, so I found a group of people online who are interested. My parents are also very against me going with people I met online (and I understand this). So I'm afrid I won't get to go at all!

Does anyone have any ideas as to how I could get round this?

Any ideas very welcome!

Thank-you,

Rox.

if you are gunna be 18 then why does it matter? also if your parents have allready met some of the people you met online then they shouldnt be so worried about it.

Oh no my parents haven't met the online people.

get to know some peeps here who are going then introduce them to your parents if all parties are willing
i know people would say your 18 so stuff it just go but i guess its how you view the whole respect issue
i have 4 kids over 18 and they still ask my advice
my 18 yr old lives at home she always asks if its ok to go somewere

If you'll be 18 by the time that Glasto comes around, then you'll legally be considered an adult and they won't be able to stop you. Tell 'um where to stick it and go anyway!

What if you got a stewarding job? stewards get secure camping, food and a ticket and you would be around other oxfam stewards - would that be acceptable to your mother?

yep i was gonna suggest this too as i'm an oxfam steward!

bear in mind though that tickets are like gold dust so you might not get one anyway. the stewarding places also go very quickly and priority is given to previous oxfam stewards. :)

hiya rox, sorry to hear about your predicament. i've been to glasto 4 times, ( would have gone last year but couldnt get tickets ) and must say out of all the fests i've been to it has to be the safest and best organised of all the big fests.
even if you go on your own, set up camp, within an 'our you will be friends with all the people round you, sittin round camp fires and havin a good time.
goings not the hard thing, its just gitting the bloody tickets.
any way just show this to your mom and PUGGY SAYS IT'S OK!!:hippy:

Why not meet these online people first and let your mum meet them to?

Thanks for your help everyone. I have persuaded my parents to allow me to go; provided my dad comes with me!

ROFL! I'm sure she'd take it in, especially since I've been avoiding church for the past 6 years!
