With this year’s festival season fast approaching, Octopus Energy has teamed up with some iconic British festivals – including Glastonbury – to inject some energy into your sunny season.

The British renewable energy group, specialising in sustainable energy, is giving away 13 pairs of summer festival tickets to Octopus Energy customers in Octoplus rewards – with the grand prize being two tickets to Glastonbury 2024 and an EV to get you there.

All you have to do to be in with a winning chance is nominate an Octoplus-one who’d love a summer festival trip, and tell Octopus Energy why they deserve it – before the competition closing date at 23:59 on Wednesday, 3rd of May.

🚨 How To Enter
  1. Be an Octoplus customer (this means you’re with, have a smart meter and are in their rewards programme).
  2. Post your nomination on X (Twitter) or Instagram telling Octopus Energy why they deserve to go in the comments of this post (or celebrate them in an IG post of your own!)
  3. IMPORTANT: Tag @OctopusEnergy and use the hashtag #OctoPlusOne.

As well as Glasto, there are loads of other great festival tickets to win for family, food and fun at Camp Bestival, Wychwood Festival and Valley Fest. A few lucky winners will get extra-special perks like a bar tab or a luxury tent.

The 13 very best #OctoPlusOne stories will then be independently chosen to win the tickets, with the winners announced on Tuesday, 7th of May.

📢 Please Note

To be eligible to enter the competition, you must be a UK resident Octopus Energy customer and at least 18 years of age – as stated in the full Terms and Conditions.

Octopus Energy is the ongoing energy provider to Worthy Farm, providing 100% renewable electricity to the farm, as well as working with the Festival’s long-term, temporary power team on site, to explore providing more sustainable energy to the Festival in future years.

In 2023 the renewable energy group, Octopus Energy built a wind turbine that helped contribute more sustainable power for food stands at last year’s Glastonbury Festival.

The 20-metre-tall wind turbine included eight metre-long blades and was ordered at the end of last Apri, before being erected in a day in William’s Greenfield, or Carhenge, near the Pyramid Stage.

Along with a battery to store the green energy produced, Octopus also installed solar panels to complement the wind turbine, while supplying clean energy to a microgrid which powered food vendors in the field so they can serve snacks made with low-carbon energy – producing up to 300kWh of energy per day (enough to power approximately 300 fridges).

Compared to an equivalent diesel generator, Octopus Energy’s trusty pink fan produces around 4-6g of CO2, an astonishing 210x fewer emissions. This turbine also achieves carbon payback in its first year, saving a staggering 379kg of CO2. To put this into perspective, it’s like planting 9,488 tree seedlings and nurturing them for a decade.

Octopus Energy Group CEO and founder Greg Jackson said at the time, “When I met Emily (Eavis) I was immediately struck by so many shared values. What was planned to be a short meeting went on for hours as we discussed what makes for a better world. I am excited to be able to not only generate green energy at the Festival, but to work together for the long term too.”

Lineup & Rumours

After West Holts was the fifth area to reveal its line-up poster for Glastonbury 2024 just yesterday (26th April) – Earlier this month, The Glade was the fourth area to announce its line-up on the 22nd of April, with Shangri-La before that on the 19th of April, after Field of Avalon on the 16th of April, and Acoustic Stage on the 12th of April.

With only less than 62 days to go until Glastonbury opens its gates for this summer’s event, we can continue to expect more individual areas and stages to announce their dedicated line-ups over the coming weeks before the full bill gets revealed sometime at the end of May in the buildup to this year’s Festival.

Although the full Glasto line-up doesn’t tend to get released until the end of May, this year, the first main line-up poster was announced on Thursday morning (14th March), in which it confirmed that Dua Lipa, Coldplay and SZA will be taking to the iconic Pyramid Stage to headline the event this summer on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of the Festival, respectively.

Shania Twain was also announced as this year’s Sunday afternoon tea-time Legends slot performer, along with a spread of artists, including LCD Soundsystem, Little Simz, Burna Boy, PJ Harvey, Cyndi Lauper, Michael Kiwanuka, Janelle Monae, Olivia Dean, Paloma Faith and Keane, and many more.

That said, there are many artists who ‘self-confirm’ before the official announcements by divulging the news via interviews, social media or website listings to accompany the ever-growing Glasto rumours.

Site Changes & Updates

When revealing its lineup earlier in the month, late-night area Shangri-La also announced a brand-new venue named Arrivals. Designed by Shankho Chaudhuri, Esha Sikander & Shirin Naveed, and featuring the work of iIllustrator Osheen Siva, the new space is described as the “first dedicated South Asian space” to be created, designed, and built by an entirely South Asian team.

“The visitors to Arrivals will be transported through a portal to an alien jungle planet, immersed by an audio-visual world coded in solar punk, carnivorous plants, cyborg beasts and space pirates. The space bridges across nostalgia to futurism, a sensory feast of vivid lights and colours, remixing the worlds of pulp sci-fi classics within a newly redefined South Asian aesthetic.”

In addition to new South Asian space, Glastonbury is said to also introduce a new bar for 2024 titled ‘The Brewery‘ – As a statement published on the official Festival website reads: “Just along the boulevard from the Pyramid stage that we hope will soon become a firm festival must-visit. Take a seat & enjoy your favourite drink & music with your favourite people”.

The Festival was given both praise for a “very well-run” festival in 2023, as well as a series of recommendations for this year’s edition by council officers on how it may improve ahead of the upcoming event.

Some of the improvement recommendations include better crowd control, bars displaying relevant allergen information, better walkways and additional toilets and water refill stations at The Park and The Stone Circle areas.

Elsewhere, the Rabbit Hole at Glastonbury has announced it will not be returning to Worthy Farm for the 2024 edition of the Festival – In a post on Facebook, the Rabbit Hole organisers said: “It is with gladness in our hearts and love for all of you, that we announce that the Rabbit Hole is disappearing into the ether and will not be at Glastonbury 2024. All great things come to an end and yet the end of one thing is but the beginning of another! What dreams may come!”

Although it has yet to be announced what will be replacing the beloved venue, rumours have it that it might be something created by the same team.
