Advantages: Great live music, atmosphere, a whole new world
Disadvantages: Weather (not last year moah!), Using the toilets plus the smell (bring gas mask), Showers only in greenpeace field and family field.
Not one tent! many tents, a camping extravigansa. 150,000 people turn up and soon fill the green fields with a sea of tents. The air is heavy with a mist from the thousands of campfires burning. The music is the main attraction with many big names and new ones, which you will recognise in a few months time and think oh my we watched them at glastonbury. and yes you will be saying OH my god alot. Your senses will be overcome with the light, the people, the acts, the music and mauch crazyiness. The music never stops! especially at the glade. The site is massive and is very tireing to walk round. And however much you walk you will always find a new corner or field which suprises you even more.
Like the night myself and my boyfriend took a walk through the avalon field and were greated by a hippy (who looked like ozzy osbourne, but stoned) and told us to take a walk down there and pointed his finger to the tippi field where people were playing the bongos and mediating. Fantastic. Or when we came across the theater field and we walked from tent to tent watching bizzare shows with naked men and others who pretented to wet themselves! bizzaire!
By the last day we were skint and needed food. We were saved! the harichristner (sorry if spelt wrong) were giving out free food to a huge queue of hungry glastongoers. What nice people!
So pack your rucksack and go! oh yeah and buy a ticket, there are no fence jumpers allowed.
