Glastonbury’s 2018 absence…
With 2018 being a “fallow year” for the beloved Worthy Farm festival, there have been numerous talks about trying to find a ‘Glastonbury replacement’ festival in order to fill the void due to the 2018 Glastonbury absence.
Below we have tried to summarise the top 20 reasons for why there can be no real replacement for such a world wonder.
That being said, trying to summarise the reasons to just 20 has proven to be a very difficult task, seeing that there are obviously SO MANY more.
Feel free to let us know which is your favourite from the reasons listed below, or to point out the ones we might have missed.
Ok, so without further ado – here are our 20 reasons for why there can be no real ‘Glastonbury replacement’:
#1 Michael and Emily Eavis
‘Cos family is for life and Glastonbury is still sponsor-free!
#2 The charity work
Over £2 MILLION given to good causes.
#3 The magnitude
‘Cos no other festival even comes close.
#4 The Foooood
Some might say the ultimate foodie’s foodfest.
#5 … and cider
The Cider Bus. ‘Nuf said.
#6 … AND BEER
Yes, you can bring YOUR OWN BEER!
#7 The Pyramid Stage
Nowhere else does the band look as blown-away by the crowd as the crowd does by the band.
#8 The Stone Circle
Watching the sunset from the stone circle on the Wednesday night before it all kicks off, or perhaps, catching the last night sunrise surrounded by newly found friends and flickering candles.
#9 The costumes
#10 The Ribbon Tower
#11 This guy
#12 The Hidden Piano Bar
AKA the best-kept festival “secret”.
#13 Glorious Glasto Mud
Quicksand has nothing on the infamous Glasto mud, nor does any other type of mud in any other festival on the planet.
Love’em or hate’em, you better pack’em.
#15 This View
#16 The Rabbit Hole
An inner world where weird and wonderful things happen.
#17 The smiles
Imagining for a few days what it would be like if everyone was always that happy, helpful and kind.
#18 The festival-within-a-festival
Staying up all night to get lost in this otherworldly experience. ‘Cos what happens in Shangri-La, stays in Shangri-La.
#20 Oh, and the bands
Yes, let us not forget – there is some good music too 😉
