There was hardly a queue at all till 3 / 4 yesterday. Probably be a bit busier today because it's Saturday. I'd nip down and check, there's lots to do and places to eat and drink nearby if the queues aren't massive.
We went down early on the off chance they were handing out pit bands and then kept checking back all day till we queued at 3pm, got pit bands no problem.

At least at MK you could show up around 10am, get your wristband then bugger off to a pub somewhere! When/where did they actually hand out the golden circle wristbands? We're bridge 2, turnstile H. Can't wait!
Pit wristbands were handed out at the entrance of the pit. I could see people queuing at the turnstiles before they opened with different coloured wristbands and me and my friend thought these were for the pit but evidently not. Overheard a security guard say you didn't need this one to get access to the pit, just the one they handed out at the front.

It was horrible. Why don't they let the front people from each turnstiles go at the same time? Really unfair to watch everyone else walk in and you're getting penned in like cattle as you said here!

Got lucky and ended up with a spot on the railing anyway on the walkway so not all bad!

If it is the same as yesterday, go to turnstile L. As we were queueing the staff told us we were going to be let in first and we just presumed that they were just saying that etc...turns out they did.

Once you are over the bridge, the turnstile on your ticket is irrelevant, no further checks are done!
