2016 Glastonbury Festival 22nd to 26th June
2016 Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts
From the 22nd of June to the 26th of June
A unique festivity of music set on a huge site offering a grand scale of entertainment unlike any other festival in the world. For five days in June, around Pilton farm plays host to a tented city in Somerset. Glastonbury is the largest Greenfield festival in the world, and is now attended by around 175,000 people. Aside from the incredible music you’ll find at Glastonbury, perhaps the funniest part of the festival is wading through the mud in your rain boots while camping with all of your friends. Glastonbury is loud, dirty, and wild – everything a music festival should be.
The size and nature of the festival, held over 3 or 4 days in the open air, with performers, crew and paying festival goers staying in tents, caravans and motorhomes, has meant that the weather is significant. Apart from music from nearly every genre imaginable on over 100 stages, there are performing arts with cabaret, theatre, circus, children’s entertainment, poetry, healing, green crafts and information and much more. Vibrant, spontaneous, colorful, and hugely entertaining is what this festival is all about!
When you go there you will get to meet all kinds of people, of all ages, lifestyles, faiths, concepts of fashion and musical taste. The overall vibe of the festival is consistently mellow and friendly.
