WaterAid is celebrating its 30th year of partnership with Glastonbury Festival this summer, and to rejoice in the occasion, it is giving fans the chance to win tickets to this year’s Worthy Farm event.

Across the world, 1 in 10 people don’t have clean water close to home and a staggering 1.5 billion don’t have a decent toilet of their own. Everyone, everywhere needs these basic essentials to live – To make the most of life.

WaterAid – which along with Oxfam and Greenpeace is one of Glastonbury’s 3 main charities – is committed to a world where everyone, everywhere has clean water and decent toilets.

With the help of their supporters, they have already reached 28.5 million people with clean water, 29 million people with decent toilets and 27.8 million people with good hygiene – while around the world, the charity continues making lasting change happen on a huge scale through policy, laws and much more.

All you have to do for the chance of winning a pair of Glastonbury 2024 tickets, is help WaterAid spread the word by designing a temporary tattoo and championing clean water and decent toilets for everyone, everywhere.

🚨 How To Enter
  1.  Design a temporary tattoo championing clean water and decent toilets for everyone, everywhere – which should:
    • be bold and impactful.
    • use no more than three colours (while incorporating some bright ‘WaterAid’ cyan, if possible).
    • be easily scalable up or down.
    • be created using whichever medium you prefer, whether digitally or by hand (just take a photo). 
  2. Visit WaterAid’s competition page here, and click on the ‘submit your design‘ button.
  3. Fill out the form and upload your design.

Your design doesn’t need to be perfect or include intricate artwork. Often, the simplest approaches are the most effective, although you could incorporate a drawing or symbols if you wish, or stick to just words – it’s all up to you. 

This competition is now open and runs from today (Thursday, 25th April), until 12pm on the 7th of May 2024, when a shortlist of designs will then be selected by a panel of judges, including Glastonbury’s co-organiser Emily Eavis – with the winning design chosen by public vote.

Not only will the winner gain a pair of tickets, but their design will also be printed and given out to festival-goers at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

📢 Please Note

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

Stumped for a slogan? Not got a creative bone in your body? Don’t worry – there’ll be another chance to win Glastonbury tickets with WaterAid, simply by voting for the design you think should be transformed into a tattoo, which will take place between Friday 10 May and Tuesday 14 May – So keep an eye on the competition page, and make sure you follow WaterAid on TwitterFacebookTikTok and Instagram, for more details.

The legendary Pilton-held event returns this year and will run from the 26th to the 30th of June in Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset – with Dua Lipa, Coldplay and SZA as its headliners.

When Glastonbury kicks off this year, 1 in 10 people won’t have clean water close to home, and almost 1 in 5 lack a decent toilet

The charity’s presence has grown tremendously since its first appearance at Worthy Farm in 1994 and nowadays brings more than 600 volunteers to Glastonbury Festival each year.

As well as introducing Talking Toilets, some of the charity’s biggest highlights at the Festival include launching WaterAid’s water refill points in 2014 and the creation of their Loo Crew cleaning teams.

Then in 2019, WaterAid quadrupled the number of Kiosks to support Glastonbury’s ban on single-use plastic, ensuring everyone could access free tap water as part of their festival experience.

Other Competitions

Although all tickets have now sold out, some other opportunities for getting to Glastonbury include working and volunteering at the Festival, as well as entering the many competitions, once these options make themselves available.

Last month (4th March), Brothers Cider was confirmed as the “Official Cider for Glastonbury 2024”, and to celebrate the announcement, they are giving away 10 pairs of General Admission tickets to this year’s sold-out event.

Along with the latest Clipper Teas contest, there are several other competitions currently running for the chance of winning tickets for Glastonbury 2024 – including opportunities from Guardian, Vodafone, Time Out, White Claw, Tony’s Chocolonely & Oxfam, Chilly’s, Co-op & Worthy Cheddar, Hunter Boots, Barbour & Oxfam, Co-op & Brooklyn Pilsner, plus many more to come.

In Other News

Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis was knighted by the Princess Royal for his contributions to music and charity – after previously receiving a CBE in 2007.

The investiture ceremony which took place at Windsor Castle earlier this week (Tuesday, 23rd April) also honoured two former England cricketers, Stuart Broad and Lydia Greenway, who have been recognised by King Charles.

The 88-year-old legend – whose full name is Athelstan Joseph Michael Eavis – transformed the Somerset event into one of the most widely celebrated music festivals in the world, drawing in over 200,000 people every year as well as the biggest musical talent and celebrity as its guests.

Elsewhere, earlier this month, The Glade was the fourth area to announce its line-up for Glastonbury 2024 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.
