Glastonbury only lasts for 5 short days, for the rest of the year, we bring you Glastonbury World. A site dedicated to the biggest and best party in the world. The festival is an iconic event in the British summer calendar and is a mini utopia where life is a bit different for a few days. It has to be seen and experienced to be understood. It is a little difficult returning to normality once the good times have been had so with this site we want to bring you that Glastonbury spirit all year round. And bring any new Glastonbury goers some advice before you embark on the best weekend of your life…
We bring you everything you need to know about Glastonbury Festival or Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts as it is official known. The sights, sounds, site, people, weather, information, forums, ticket information… Pretty much anything we can think of to do with the festival. This site is for the good people who love Glastonbury so please let us know of suggestions for any desired content through the contact us place. Also, please feel free to send through any pictures/video that you think others would enjoy.
