“Glastonbury Festival is simply a wonder of the world!” – Jake Kidde-Hansen

“Wow. Where to begin? From my first few when the travellers ran the show, anarchic, free, life-changing experiences, to the more recent enormous, amazing, and still absolutely life-affirming event it has become, Glastonbury Festival is simply a wonder of the world! When we have missed it it’s so utterly painful and sad.

I have been as a twenty-something with friends, and as a forty-something with my partner and children. We have bonded as a family there, made lifelong friends, seen incredible music, art, theatre, and all the crazy beautiful wild inventiveness found only on Worthy Farm. Headliners barely matter – although when they’re good they’re incredible.

Faithless’ We come One at sunset at the Pyramid was mindblowing; The Prodigy on the Other Stage, just mental; Chase and Status on West Holts was the first proper gig with my son; Chic on West Holts – the best party on earth; Kae Tempest, also on West Holts having the entire crowd crying their eyes out; The Stones; Radiohead; all the DJs, dance acts, after-hours; Arcadia, Mutoid Waste, Rabbit Hole… – I could go on (and on and on and on).

If you could bottle the essence of Glastonbury, it would be a portion of utter joy. I really really really hope that 2022 will find me queuing on a dewy June morning on Worthy Farm, feeling the happiness and excitement of the incredible 5 days and nights to come!”

"By 1981 I'd only ever been to Knebworth in 1976 and Deeply Vale in 1979, so when a bunch of mates decided to hire a van and head to Glastonbury, I joined them. There were eight or nine of us in the van. Two would pay and drive in, while ...

“It’s a cliché, I know, but Glastonbury is home to me” – Luiza Lopes
It's a cliché, I know, but Glastonbury is home to me. My sister, my mom, my stepfather and I are all very connected to music, and our favorite pastime is watching concerts together, talking about music and, well, anything music-related really. In 2015 we attended the festival for the first ...
