The Glastonbury Festival is the single biggest musical event in the world. There is no peer: if you haven’t been to a Glastonbury Festival, then you owe it to yourself to make the time to go this year. If you have been, then you know exactly what to expect, and it’s going to be as great as ever. The musical lineup is peerless, the activities are incredibly fun, and the atmosphere is unique. Glastonbury is the largest Greenfield musical festival in the world – with a capacity of over 170,000 people, it brings together all of the biggest music fans and characters in the Western hemisphere. It is quite simply a can’t-miss event every year.
The Glastonbury Festival started in 1970, and it’s grown exponentially since then. In the beginning, it was a relatively small event, but it’s grown from an event for just over 1,000 people in 1970 to being a worldwide bonanza that attracted more than 150,000 people in 2007. Glastonbury Festival is going to be an incredible event, as it continues to grow and attract the biggest names in music, from U2 to Stevie Wonder. There’s an incredible variety of musical acts and genres, and the all-time greats are mixed in with the best up and coming bands.
Glastonbury Festival is a prime example of what can be done when an event is patiently built up over many years. It also shows how one can learn from previous mistakes and improve on them. Reading the brief history of this Festival, one is amazed at some of the setbacks the organisers have had to contend with. For instance, during the 2005 event, two months’ worth of rain came down over several hours. It was a once in a hundred-year occurrence. Those who attended that year, dinghy’s and all, still had a fabulous time.
The festival is enormous, with different activities happening all day. The festival is for all ages; there are family caravans and kiosks full of products and activities you’ve never seen before. It’s not just a concert; it’s a bash that’s guaranteed to be one of the best times of your life. The sheer talent and variety on stage alone is more than worth the price of admission, and it only gets better from there
One of the greatest parts of the Glastonbury Festival is a general atmosphere. That’s what Glastonbury is all about. It’s for everybody to let their hair down and rock out for nearly a whole week. It’s one of the most fun parties in the world, and you owe it to yourself to experience it at least one more time. Glastonbury Festival looks like it’s going to be one of the best festivals ever, so make sure you’re in attendance from day one!
