“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!”

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 Glastomonial, and Glastonbury experience as a whole.

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.
