We launched the Glastomonial Gallery – initially known as the ‘Once Upon a Time in Glastonbury’ project – back in April of 2020, due to the cancellation of Glastonbury Festival and the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, inspired to find fellow Glasto-goers who would like to share their Glastonbury stories, memories and photos!
“Legend tells of an enchanted Brigadoon that appears for only 5 days a year at midsummer, in the flowering meadows of the Vale of Avalon. It is said that there may be found entrancing music, amazing spectacles and wonders beyond compare.” – A temporary city where stories and memories are created and woven into the very fabric of one’s soul.
Since founded by Michael Eavis back in 1970, the Pilton Pop Folk & Blues Festival (as it was known back then) has taken root and blossomed from an organically intimate assemblage, into the legendary known-the-world-over [Glastonbury] Festival it is today. As the years pass and times come and go, the Festival continues to flourish into a distinctive incarnation of itself – holding true to its original spiritual past, while bonding the people through new shared experiences on the hallowed grounds of Worthy Farm.
The goal of this project was and still is to put the people who make Glastonbury Festival the most magical place on earth front and centre, while helping everyone during challenging times, uniting the community and keeping spirits high!
The submitted Glastonbury testimonials or ‘Glastomonials’ as we like to call them, will hopefully become part of a bigger archive bearing a unique historical perspective, accounting for anything from “what Glastonbury means to you” to that crazy-hazy-Glasto-4am-half-a-memory-of-a-story, you just have to tell the grandkids.
We’ve already had some amazing Glastomonials come through and can’t wait for you to contribute yours too!
Below you’ll find a submission form where you can submit your Glastomonial.
Glastomonials can be whatever you like them to be – good or bad, funny or sad, as short or long as you wish, and should be accompanied by your Glasto photos that best capture the essence of your Glastonbury Festival experience and testimonial.
We ask that you share your stories, memories and any crazy / quirky / funny / magical details you can recall – Please make it as expressive as possible.
Once submitted and reviewed, it will then be published on the website and shared across our social channels.
If you would prefer using email rather than the submission form below, feel free to hit us up at: [email protected]
Thank you for taking the time to be a part of this project!
