Glastonbury Festival is the biggest greenfield music and performing arts festival in the world and a model for all the festivals that have followed after it, and it’s now visited by about 175,000 people, needing extensive setups in terms of safety, transportation, water, and electricity source. The difference is that Glastonbury has all the top features of being at a festival in one amazing package.
Famous pop and rock singers have headlined, besides thousands of others performing on tinier stages and performance regions. Films and albums recorded at Glastonbury have been put out, and the festival gets broad television and newspaper exposure.
The Festival location has distinctive socio-geographic areas. The more profitable parts are surrounding the Pyramid, Other and Silver Hayes, which seems as if the West End of London a Saturday night has been detached to a field and meticulously embellished. Not like the West End, guests are on every visitor list, from the night time movies to the largest gigs.
The Festival is held in a stunning site – 900 acres in the Vale of Avalon, a region immersed in representation, folklore and religious customs going back several hundreds of years. It’s where King Arthur might be buried, where Joseph of Arimathea is believed to have walked, where ley lines meet.
The Glastonbury Festival is a five-day event which will start on Wednesday, June 26th and it will conclude on Sunday June 30th 2019.
