Absolute superfan, I have been a regular at the Glastonbury Festival – now the UK’s largest outdoor performing arts event – since the early 1990s.
Starting out in the press pits, taking pictures of bands, I became increasingly interested in the more spontaneous side of the festival, beyond all the hype. Documenting the day-to-day life of a makeshift city with its unique sociological footprint, I hope my images show us a world in which intense experiences are played out against a backdrop dominated by canvas, big skies and, periodically, expanses of trademark Glastonbury mud. This magnificent post apocatastasistic, VR meltdown early settlement environment.

Submit your Glastomonial
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.
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]
