Mud, wellies and musical legends at the UK’s biggest music festival.
The Big Daddy of UK festivals is back, taking over a chunk of Somerset with music, mischief, hippies, healing and a lot of cider. It’s difficult to convey quite how vast Glasto is, with whole worlds of activity taking place outside the arena as well as an awe-inspiring musical line-up ranging from pop to reggae to rock to dubstep to metal to folk to techno. The big headliners are Muse, Adele and Coldplay and there’s a slightly heftier pop quotient on the bill than usual, which has led to some criticism from Glasto regulars. But if you’re lucky enough to have bagged a ticket then bring an open mind and a sense of humour, and prepare for the usual transcendent dose of mayhem, madness and (did we mention already?) mud.
