Advantages: Field full of mud + great music = fun times.
Disadvantages: Sleeping in a tent?
Glastonbury 2009. This is my review of it based on the experience i had (Its so big, so many people will have different experiences)
Ok so we arrived on the friday, which is strange because you usually stay from the wednesday until the monday. The traffic on the way in was minimal.
We were directed to the car park and we parked up, got all the gear out of the car and carried it to a field already full of tents (they had already been there 48 hours) so we had to find a decent spot to put it up in. It was quite easy to find a place to camp. We got all the gear into the tent then set off to see what was happening around the festival.
We wandered through dancing men playing violins, a life sized robot which was squirting everyone with water, a man 3 times as big as me (he was on stilts) and people generally being eccentric and letting go.
Poeple are very friendly, at least the people i spoke to. The great thing is, is that the festival is split up into sections of almost mini festivals, where people gather, so for example, if you were into greenpeace and thier activities, there is a whole field full of people like you!
I spent most of my time in the 'other stage' area where lots of great bands played (Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party, Maximo Park, The Prodigy, Pendulum, Bat for Lashes, Friendly Fires)
One of the highlights of the weekend was N.E.R.D. tearing up the pyramid stage. They were very entertaining but were cut short due to the festival wanting to keep to times. They were not happy and the whole crowd were chanting for them to carry on.
Another highlight for me was the weather, it was spot on most of the time, with only a few showers cropping in on the friday and sunday. Not bad at all.
I enjoyed the weekend very much. I learnt alot and would definately go again. I would recommend it to anyone. It really is a very cool place to be once a year and there are many great things to do, you will never be bored (and if you are, just open your eyes!)
Summary: Great festival.
