Glastonbury Festival Guide 2015

Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset
24th June 2015

Festival Information
The Glastonbury festival is one of the largest and most famous UK festivals in the world, rich with history, culture and a huge variety of popular and alternative music.

A Brief History Of Glastonbury

Situated on Worthy Farm in Somerset, the festival was founded by Michael Eavis in 1970 and he and his daughter Emily have continued to run it for over four decades to huge success.

Famous for its countercultural hippy vibes, Glastonbury’s first ever big headliner was glam rock band T Rex, but many more artists have played its iconic Pyramid Stage over the years such as David Bowie, The Cure, Radiohead, Kings Of Leon, Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Jay Z and many more.

The festival is widely praised for its huge diversity in musical acts, with pop, rock, folk, electronic and even metal and hip-hop stars rocking both the larger and smaller, more intimate stages. There’s something for everyone at Glasto!

Why You Should Go To Glastonbury

There’s more than just music happening at Glastonbury too, the festival boasts plenty of other cultural activities such as theatre, poetry, art, dance tents and comedy. When you need a break from music for a while, there’s still plenty to keep yourself entertained with.

The festival continues to grow year after year and has remained consistently popular with music fans of all ages and from all walks of life. Every single June each year (apart from the odd year off to give the cow’s a rest) everyone looks forward to Glastonbury!

Other Entertainment

There's most definitely more than just music happening at Glastonbury, and no experience at the festival is complete without at least taking in a few of the other sights, sounds and even smells Worthy Farm has to offer. 

Here's a sampling of some of the best alternatives to watching bands at Glastonbury 2015:

Theatre & Circus
- There are plenty of performances happening all weekend at Glasto across several different fields, including the appropriately named Circus Field, Bella's Field and Glebeland. Expect cabaret, acrobatics, clowns, sideshows, drama, burlesque, poetry and more. 
Green Fields - Here is where the true hippy spirit of Glastonbury lives on! Eco friendly and great for families, the Green Fields boast arts and crafts, organic food, entertainment, workshops and kids play areas. A great place to relax, visit the Green Fields to chill out and meet interesting new people.
Kidz Field - The clue's in the name, but this part of the festival is great for children of all ages. There's a huge variety of entertainment for kids all weekend long in the Kidz Field, and for 2015 some extra special guests are making appearances, including the legendary professor Stephen Hawking and magician Dynamo. 
The Unfairground - The Unfairground combines classic fairground rides with music and bizarre sideshow attractions that have to be seen to be believed!
Arcadia - The main attraction of Arcadia is a GIANT. ROBOT. SPIDER! Impressive, right? Not only that but there's plenty of dance and electronic music too with DJ sets and performances from artists such as Skream, Annie Mac and Groove Armada.
Pilton Palais Cinema - Showcasing current blockbusters, indie films and even festival exclusive documentaries, take a break from other festivities or recover from a hangover by watching a movie.

Ticket Prices


ANNOUNCEMENT: All tickets for Glastonbury 2015 are sold out!

Tickets for Glastonbury are in very high demand due to the popularity of the festival. Because of this, anyone wanting to get their hands on tickets must register beforehand, often many months before they go up for sale. Photo identification is required for registration.

To get tickets, we advise you register for them on Glastonbury's official site as soon as registration is announced. Once registered you will have the opportunity to buy tickets once they go sale. Ticket prices for 2015 are as follows:

£220 + £5 Booking Fee (Includes £50 Deposit)

Coach packages are also available that charge extra for travel costs.

If you miss out on tickets at the first opportunity, but are still registered, you may still have a chance to get some as many tickets are resold in April from other potential festivals goers cancelling theirs.

Glastonbury Tickets cannot be resold to or bought from anywhere else other than Glastonbury's official site as they are personally registered to whoever holds them. The reason for this is to stamp out ticket touting, a practice that allows individuals to profit off desperate festival fans with price gouging. It also gives true music fans a greater chance of obtaining tickets to see their favourite artists.

To register, buy or get more information, please visit the official Glastonbury website.
