Glastonbury is a five-day festival that takes place near the town of Pilton in Somerset, England. It is considered one of the biggest festivals in the world, if not the biggest. The festival has an amazing lineup every year, in both depth and variety. Also impressive are the decoration of the festival site, the numerous non-musical activities, and the political engagement of the festival (actions to save the environment for instance). You have to get your ticket before knowing any of the performing artists, because it is always sold out within minutes, which says a lot about the quality of the festival.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get to the festival?
For international festival goers, flying into London and taking a bus from there is the best option. Glastonbury offers combined coach + ticket options on ticket day. In case you missed out on these, you can always get a ticket for the National Express buses, which depart from the major cities in Britain.
In case you prefer to take the train, there is one that stops six miles from the festival site. From here, a free shuttle service will be available.
Some people want to go by car, and that is totally fine. You will need to purchase a Car Park Sticker to be able to use the parking. Finally, the festival also offers a space for campervans.
Is there a festival campsite?
Yes, and it’s the option most used by punters. Be careful as each campsite has its specifications. You have plenty of options, some being quieter than others, while one is directly in front of the Pyramid stage. Choose wisely and head to the campsite early to get a guaranteed spot for your group.
