A completely new entertainment area was introduced in 2007 which was positioned at the south-west tip of the site aka the top of The Park, Home Ground camping field.
Simply entitled The Park, this area was initially programmed by Emily Eavis, so that she could hone her skills before assuming more of the overall responsibility of running the festival from her father, founder of Glastonbury Festival, Michael Eavis.
The Park includes several venues, from open-air stages and late night bars and cafes, to teepee villages, art installations, and an illuminated 18-meter Ribbon Tower which overlooks the entire Festival site.
The quality and diversity of entertainment here almost sets it aside as being a mini-festival all of its own which many smaller events would find it hard to match.
This area is not to be missed! If none of its line up tickles your fancy, make it a point to go on the Thursday before the main music days start (on the Friday).
A notable mention for The Park is the great late night fun it comprises. From the Silent Disco to one of Glasto’s best-kept Secrets – The Rabbit Hole.
