Getting to Glastonbury

You know it must be good when thousands of festival-goers head for a teeny dot that’s barely visible on a map. So, where is Glastonbury Festival actually held? The short answer is: Pilton. But it’s more accurate to say that it all unfolds on the green fields of Worthy Farm near the small town of Shepton Mallet between the teeny villages of Pilton and Pylle in Somerset county, South West England. Glastonbury itself is a teeny town 10 km from the festival site and Castle Cary is 13 km from Shepton Mallet where you’ll find the bus and train stations. Bristol, which is the nearest city with an international airport, is 45 km from Castle Cary.

Glastonbury: Stages, Tents & Circus

Glastonbury Festival is four days of euphoric open-air carnivalesque mayhem for throngs of ecstatic revellers to imbibe contemporary rock, pop, folk, electro, hip-hop, blues, soul, funk, bass, dance and world music by top international artists performing from tents and outdoor stages on the green fields of Worthy Farm near Pilton village in Somerset, England. It’s one of the best UK music festivals, one of the most popular contemporary performing arts events in Europe, and considered the largest greenfield festival in the world, with an annual attendance surpassing 175,000.

About

Glastonbury: Stages, Tents & Circus

While not forgetting its natural freedom-loving, hippie-ethic roots, Glastonbury Festival at Worthy Farm accommodates over 100 outdoor stages & tents, late-night bars, lounges, clubs, a cabaret, a circus big top (replete with highflying acrobatic performances), a theatre, a comedy club, the Pilton Palais cinema tent, giant art installations and a gargantuan Pyramid Stage that’s been graced by the likes of Mick Jagger, Bobby Womack, David Bowie, Van Morrison, The Cure, Radiohead, The Who, Lenny Kravitz, Paul McCartney, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Mumford & Sons, Arctic Monkeys and Primal Scream.

Shangri-La to Left Field at Glastonbury Music Festival

Although all events are on Worthy Farm, Glastonbury Festivals are a series of separate celebrations spread throughout the green fields, which are divided into over 20 zones, and range from spaces for debauchery and wild parties to areas designed for spiritual introspection, quiet relaxation and children’s play.

Let loose with thousands of writhing bodies at Silver Hayes – the massive newly-renovated dance village, indulge in revelry at the legendary after-hour parties in Shangri-La pleasure city, share ideas where joie de vie meets raison d’être with radical debates and comedy at Left Field, or join family events where eco-friendly technology convenes with nature’s inspiration at Green Fields, the Healing Field and Kidz Field.

Glastonbury Festival is the UK’s not to be missed summer event!

Rock’n’roll, Doo-wop, Soul, Grime & Beat-boxing at Glastonbury

The Glastonbury Festival Line-up is an annual extravaganza of the music industry’s who’s who A-listers with headline acts by acclaimed international artists, which in 2013 included The Rolling Stones, Arctic Monkeys, Primal Scream and Mumford & Sons. Glastonbury also featured English pub-rock-punk-new-wave musician Elvis Costello, English folk-singer-songwriter-guitarist Ben Howard, French alternative-rock band Phoenix (who’ve also played Lollapalooza in Chicago, Rock am Ring in Germany, Coachella in California and Primavera Sound in Barcelona) and legendary funk-soul-blues-R&B-doo-woper Bobby Womack. Worthy Farm’s Pyramid Stage has presented Billy Bragg’s edgy lyrics, Dizzee Rascal’s beat-boxing-hip-hop-electronic-grime, and held-up to the theatrics of chameleon-alternative-gothic-rocker Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds.

Bridging the Musical Generation & Genre Gap

Glastonbury Festival bridges the musical generation & genre gap by serving up a feast of contradictions, from the British pop-indie-post-punk of The Vaccines to the lyrical sagas of American country music hall of famer Kenny Rogers. It may be as English as its green fields, but the stages are as multicultural as the genre-bending rumba-madiaba-folk-pop musician Jupiter Bokondji and his band Okwess International (originally from the Congo), and Mali-born ngoni master (traditional lute player) Bassekou Kouyate.

Topping Itself Under the Glastonbury Big Top

Each year Glastonbury Music Festival finds a way of topping itself with first time headline acts that began in the 1970s with T. Rex, followed by David Bowie Peter Gabriel, Van Morrison, The Cure, Joe Cocker, R.E.M., Moby, The Who, Paul McCartney and continued the WOW-factor tradition with Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Primal Scream, and finally The Rolling Stones – with Mick Jagger singing Glastonbury Girl from the Pyramid Stage! But the festival line-up also tops itself under the Big Top with eye-popping presentations of acrobatics & circus feats such as the Incandescence Night Circus and the blazing interpretations of folk tales by Australian fire performers, Will-o’-the-Wisp. How can Glastonbury continue to top itself? Festival founder, Michael Eavis, assures fans he’s up to the challenge and won’t “give up trying to make the next one better”.

Salsa, Cinema & the Speakers Forum

Aside from the booming beats on the main stages and the alluring stunts in the theatre and circus venues, the worthiness of Worthy Farm is open to discovery. Saunter over to the more secret areas like the Glasto Latino and partake of salsa dance classes and wiggle your merengue-loving hips to Latin rhythms with groups such as Alma de Cuba y Los Guanches, or sit back and watch a film at the Pilton Palais or voice your opinions in a debate at the Speakers Forum.

What’s Glastonbury Festival About?

Glastonbury culture is about bopping to pop, jazz, folk, alternative, electronic, rock’n’roll & world music; celebrating life through art, theatre, circus, cinema, poetry and self-expression while ecstatically engaging in eco-friendly parting on the green expanses of Worthy Farm in England.
