Glastonbury may have only been away for one year… but I’m pretty certain that we are all ready for it’s return in 2019! The festival is utterly unique and the 26th-30th June 2019 can’t come round soon enough!
The music and arts festival had a year off in 2018 in order to give Worthy Farm in Somerset, a chance to recover from the past years usage!
Glastonbury wets the appetite of any music lover with it’s ability to transport you from being in day-to-day life, into a mystical, spiritual and magical world of music.
So the first reason why we LOVE Glastonbury is because of it’s ability to give the festival goers a platform to go into their own parallel universe of complete madness. The entertainment offered is simply incomparable to any other festival.
To coincide with the ever expanding world of music, Glastonbury headliners spam across all varieties of music and talent. With over 15 stages of all sizes, you’re never more than 10 minutes away from a new world of music genre.
Huge Glastonbury fan and local ‘Glastonbury girl, Ellie Parker (aged 20) is a proud resident in the village, and here is why… Ellie says’ how “Since going in 2017 it opened up my eyes up to how Glastonbury is more than just music, it’s Eco-friendly, family orientated and an experience of a lifetime!”
Year on year there is a huge hype generated when guessing who the next headliner may be. Worthy Farm has played host to some of the biggest music legends that have ever lived, and this another reason to love Glastonbury.
To add credibility to my thoughts, I spoke to a music agent at CAA in London, Paul Franklin (aged 51). He has attended the festival for his 20th time in 2017 (so could be deemed a regular to Worthy Farm!).
- “It has to be Pulp, everyone was looking forward to seeing the Stone Roses and they gave everything and killed it!”
Have you personally had artists play the festival?
- “James Bay went from the smallest stage to the pyramid stage. It’s great to take on artists from 10 people to thousands at Glastonbury. You side of stage, seeing them in front of 100,000… it’s like a proud parent moment!”
Glastonbury in one word?
- “If I could use 2… “An experience”
Glastonbury is a festival we all love, and I do hope I’ve helped to reinforce why. Glastonbury, we are very lucky to have you, and bring on 2019!
