About Glastonbury Festival, Somerset
Glastonbury hosts one of the world’s most famous music festivals, having been running at Worthy Farm since the early 1970’s. Attracting performers from all over the world, Glastonbury has the biggest names in the industry appearing live over the weekend. With over 7,000 acts and everyone from Adele to ZZ Top playing Glastonbury in 2016, legends such as Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones and Dolly Parton have all graced the famous Pyramid Stage over the years.
It’s not just about the big names either, with more stages and tents than you can imagine you will also get to see your favorite up and coming acts, the next big thing, discover an unsigned band or someone completely new.
