Glastonbury Festival is more of an experience than an event. It is basically a whole city built for a magical weekend all focused on music, the arts and the environment. There are designated areas dedicated and focused on all art forms. Besides the main music stage with bug name headliners, there are other stages for other performances and music genres. Glasto is considered one of the best rock festivals in Europe if not the world. There are areas for films, meditation, kids, food and drink areas, pop up bars, nature centered areas to recharge and relax, and an area for free-press that rolls out information for festival goers. There is LITERALLY something for everyone, even information points where you can get all sorts of information about where to go and what to do. There is no shortage of entertainment, music, and/or performance art. With so much love to go around, you can’t miss out on this festival.
“The best festival I have ever been too- so much to do and see, not enough time to get around it all! There is music and events to suit everyone. It should be on everyone’s Bucket List!”
Glasto 2019 takes place in Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, England.
Glastonbury Festival coordinators have made everything easy for you. They’ve set up a designated area for those of you who are getting dropped off and picked up to the event with a continuous bus service to and from the festival. They have Coaches scheduled from 75 different locations to and from Glastonbury and they even have shuttles running to and from Castle Cary Train Station and the local bus station. Glastonbury Festival encourages people to ride their bicycles to the festival where there will be a place to lock your bike.
There is a carpark available however you’ll have to buy a pass but you can only buy it with cash in person, so avoid driving if you can, especially as there are numerous other ways to arrive. There is also a field where campervans and caravans can be parked, it does require an extra pass as well. People coming in on a motorcycle or quad will have a spot with free parking off site of the festival. If you are flying in, the best bet is to fly into Heathrow as there will be busses going to the festival. And finally, if you’re showing up big, in a helicopter, there is a spot to even land a helicopter, although that is run separately – by a friendly neighbor.
The best and most iconic place to stay in the legendary Tipi Village. The tipis are already put up before the festival and can house up to 6 adults, there is limited number of tipis, so book early. You will also need to bring your own sleeping bags and pillows..ect. There are fields available for camping which is included in the festival ticket price. Campervans and caravans will need to separate tickets, and of course “Worthy View” which is a field of pre-erected tents. The festival warns against booking with third party ticket sellers as they’ve had fraudulent tickets in the past. And as they’ve basically done everything for you, you really just need to book a ticket.
Other than the festival and its endless activities? Since you’re already in Somerset, take the time to visit the mysterious Stonehenge or check out the Flea Markets and museums. You can take a guided horseback ride and there are plenty of trails to go hiking along.
