Michael's Mead campsite at Glastonbury Festival

Michael’s Mead

Michael’s Mead is located north of the Pyramid Stage and neighbours Spring Ground (to the west) and adjacent Hawkwell (to the east). Looking downhill to the heart of the Festival makes for some spectacular views from your tent first thing in the morning and last thing at night.

That said, the ground in this area can tend to be quite steep – which means that in some cases you’ll be putting your head to sleep on a 35+ degree angle (in some places), not to mention the uphill walk to your tent each night.

On the flip side, this area is positioned quite close to the Pyramid and Woodsies (former John Peel Stage) and is fairly accessible from the Festival Bus Station at Pedestrian Gate A, as well as from eastern Gates B and C.
