Glastonbury!

So two weekends ago Jona and I attended the biggest music festival in the world. We’re talking 170,000 people in a field listening to hundreds upon hundreds of artists big. If  you don’t believe me you can find out more about it here: http://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/. It’s ridiculous.

As well as being ridiculously big, it was also ridiculously muddy. Despite having biked there in the beautiful sunshine, Jona and I immediately had to  put on our wellies upon arriving at the site to cross the amazing mud pit that was the entrance to the festival. Once in the seen didn’t really change much. It had been raining the 3 days prior to the festival and it turns out that ground which is constantly being walked on doesn’t dry up that quickly.

Muddy boots.

Well in spite of (or may partially because of…) the mud Jona and I had an awesome time. We saw some amazing music (full list at the bottom)…

Hanging out with Don Mclean

A few people wanted to watch Paul Simon with us.

and some things you would never expect to see on a farm.

This massive spider thing plays electronic music and shoots fire.

Club gaga rocking 'til the morning.

Overall it was like nothing else I’ve ever experienced before. Totally worth waking up super early on a Sunday back in November to buy tickets.

And the full list of all the bands we heard/saw:

  • Banana Sessions
  • Two Door Cinema Club
  • Jenny and Johnny
  • War Paint
  • The Horrors
