This one’s for the Glastonbury Virgins

Calling all Glastonbury first-timers! Are you ready to dive headfirst into the enormous, fabulous world of Glastonbury? As seasoned festival-goers, we are here to share three essential things that every newbie must know before embarking on this incredible journey. Lets do this…

  1. Prepare for the Ultimate Adventure: Glastonbury is not your average music festival; it’s an immersive experience that demands your full attention. Be ready to explore every nook and cranny of the festival grounds, from the iconic Pyramid Stage to the hidden gems tucked away in the fields. Plan your schedule wisely, as there will be clashes between artists you’d love to see. It can take much, much longer than you think to get between stages – especially when there is people traffic – so our advice would be to try and not get too caught up trying to see everyone you can and running back and forth between the big stages – take things a bit steadier, go with the flow and find things on your walks as well – spontaneity is part of the magic- there is so much more than just the pyramid – and unexpected performances may end up being some of your highlights!
  2. Embrace the Glastonbury Spirit: One of the most remarkable aspects of Glastonbury is its sense of community. Prepare to be surrounded by like-minded individuals from all walks of life, united by their love for music and adventure. Engage in conversations, make new friends, and soak up the positive vibes that radiate throughout the festival. Don’t be afraid to get lost in the magic and embrace the spirit of Glastonbury. You’ll come away with unforgettable memories and lifelong connections. And don’t forget to go to the big tree at the back of the pyramid stage on Thursday afternoon for one of the worst kept secret parties at glasto.
  3. Come Prepared, But Travel Light: Glastonbury is a vast playground, and you’ll want to be equipped for whatever comes your way. Pack essentials such as sunscreen, rain gear, comfortable shoes, and a reliable backpack. Don’t forget a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated. However, remember that you’ll be traversing the festival grounds, and carrying heavy bags can dampen your experience. Remember to also leave room for festival merchandise and treasures you’ll inevitably pick up along the way. And if you want merch – buy it on the Wednesday – by Thursday afternoon the stalls are fairly empty.

Prepare yourself for a rollercoaster ride of music, art, and camaraderie that will stay with you long after the festival ends. So pack your enthusiasm, an open mind, and a sense of adventure – Glastonbury awaits! See you in the fields!
