PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Glastonbury is returning after two years, but with over 200,000 people expected to make their way to Worthy Farm this week during the largest rail strike since 1992, the excitement is hampered for many. “I can’t actually get excited about Glastonbury because I’m so stressed about the train strikes,” said Bea Isaacson, who has wanted to go to the world-famous festival for the past decade. The 23-year-old travel writer from London told i she has wanted to go to the festival ever since she watched the BBC’s broadcast of the Rolling Stones’ headline performance in 2013. The strikes, led by the RMT union over pay and job cuts, are planned for Tuesday 21 June, Thursday 23 June and Saturday 25 June, but significant disruption is expected throughout the week. Only around 20 per cent of services will run on these days and a severely reduced timetable has been published ahead of the industrial action. “I completely sympathise with why they’re striking and I understand their right to strike, it would have just been so much better if they didn’t pick the Glastonbury weekend,” said Ms Isaacson.

.Just when she thought she would finally be able to go to Glastonbury, her train – booked for a strike day on Thursday 23 June – was cancelled, and she was unable to book another one the day before as there were no more tickets left.After asking around, Ms Isaacson has found a friend who can give her a lift, but she is bracing herself for traffic jams and long queues to get into the site.Her friends who have managed to get a train ticket on Wednesday 22 June are “dreading it”, she added, as it is likely to be hot and packed full of festivalgoers and their luggage. “Glastonbury has been cancelled two years in a row and now, nobody is feeling chilled about it as everyone’s already quite stressed,” Ms Isaacson said.
