What better way to kick off your Glastonbury 2024 experience than rocking up via a travelling rave? Uber is offering a chance to do just that. The company is giving revellers a chance to get to Glasto via a 100mph mini-festival on a train. And ahead of her set on the West Holts Stage, it’ll be headlined by jungle star Nia Archives. 

Travelling from London Paddington to Castle Cary on Wednesday, June 26, the locomotive will be converted into ‘the ultimate concert venue’ with a bespoke lightning rig and sound system. But be warned – it will be a very bright and early start. The train will depart the station at 7am sharp.

Seats on board the rave train are completely free – the only snag is that you have to register to win a spot. You can enter here to try and secure a place for yourself and a pal. 

If you’re one of the chosen ones, you’ll get to enjoy first class treatment in Paddington Station’s VIP area and get a load of complimentary refreshments from UberEats. And if you miss out, Uber will still treat you to 20 percent credits back on your journey to Castle Cary is you book a train with the app. 

Nia Archives said about the train gig: ‘Buzzin’ to be heading back to ma fave place on earth, Glastonbury !! Never thought I’d be DJing in a carriage, but am sooo excited to start the party with ravers on the Uber train.’
