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’:

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.
