Glastonbury is a five-day festival of contemporary performing arts that takes place in Pilton, Somerset, England. Aside from the performing musical acts, the festival also hosts dance, comedy, theater, circus and other activities. Glastonbury is considered to be the largest greenfield festival in the world with around 135,000 attendees. It was organized for the first time in 1970 and since 1981 the festival takes place every four out of five years. The English festival occupies an important place on every festival and music lover’s bucket list. Previous headliners included The Who, Arcade Fire, and Arctic Monkeys. After a ‘fallow-year’ in 2018, the festival will return this year.
