Like Rivermead and Darble, Pylon Ground was one of the campsites which first appeared on the Festival map as a public camping field in 2011 when Glastonbury expanded its fence-line to the West in order to provide lots of additional camping space and ensure everyone is able to pitch their tent within the Festival grounds.
Looking at the image above, it’s pretty self-explanatory how Pylon Ground got its name – as you can expect to encounter a pylon tower or two in these fields. The ground here is flat for the most part and thus less likely to suffer from any floods if it starts raining. Furthermore, there is less foot traffic in this field in comparison to the neighbouring Darble and therefore might be the better located and somewhat quieter.
The John Peel Stage or Silver Hayes area are just a few minutes’ walks away, while it can take more than 20 minutes to reach the nightlife areas (i.e Shangri-La, Naughty Corner) which are located at the other end of the Festival site.
Pedestrian Gate A is the closest access point to this field, but Gate D isn’t very far either.
Great the late arrivals looking for a green grass patch to pitch their tent. For the lazy f*ckers who can’t be bothered walking more than 2 steps further than the coach station drop-off. For the cyclists. And for those who don’t mind a little pylon buzz.
