What is Glastonbury Music Festival?

Now it’s Britain’s biggest music festival without a second thought. It all started when Glastonbury was all filed with the talks of free festival moments and people were really open to all that. To be very exact it was 1970’s and the Isle of Wight Festival was the torch bearer in this regard. One of the notable organizers at that time Micheal Eavis took things to another level with hosting a festival at his farm in Pilton. It should be noted here that the festival was named the Pilton Festival due to its location.

The very next year Eavis named its Glastonbury Free Festival. Since then this event has been happening intermittently in some capacity. The 1998 event was the very first time when over 100,000 tickets were sold. Since then this festival is getting successful by leaps and bounds. The lineups that include some bigwigs from their respective fields are proving that this event is second to none. Namely stars like Adele, Cold Play, Beyonce and Ed Sheeran have previously showcased their immense talent on this platform.

At first, only being the Greenfield festival, this mega-event is taking some serious action to cater to this year’s 175,000 attendees in a better way. In previous events, gatecrashers have been breaking into but the security and other necessities this time leave no room for such incidents. The security, electric supply, transport, water and everything else this time is planned in a full-fledged manner.  For sure the leading rock and pop artists will be the showstoppers but you still can’t take away from the other magical performances like cabaret, circus, theatre, and others.

 

Glastonbury 2019 Tickets

If you already have booked the tickets for this much-hyped event it is well and good but if you haven’t there is little we can do in this regard. The musical festival, which is just a month shy of happening got the tickets on sale many moons ago. The limit of 1750,000 tickets and attendees just got snapped up within no times. The ticket selling board could only read ‘Sold Out’ then. In case, you were eyeing to get Glastonbury 2019 tickets in returned coach packages, it won’t even work as it has already taken place on 25th April.

But you don’t actually need to get disappointed with that, your quest for tickets can get you somewhere. A pro-tip in this regard is to get on Glastonbury fan pages and forum, you will most probably find someone selling his/her tickets due to commitments. The ticket for this year’s eve will be slightly expensive than the previous ones – £248 from £238 last time.

The usage of the term ‘bigger and better’ for this event isn’t merely for exaggeration purpose; it’s actually going to reach new heights. The 175,000 audiences will itself be a record in Glastonbury history and so the improved facilities will be. But that’s not all; the never-ending line-up is going to be an eye-opener for many festival-goers. Miley Cyrus has jumped on Glastonbury bandwagon this time and that’s superb news for all the music fans out there.

Carrying on the reputation as one Greenfield festival, utilizing the camping fields for your accommodation purpose is right there on the cards. Plus, you don’t need to pay extra bucks to avail this facility as it is already included in your ticket price. At the same time, bringing caravan/campervan is purely your choice. And for this purpose, the management has campervan and caravan fields. But the thing is the dedicated space is completely sold out. Even the additional campervan tickets have been sold out.
