2. Glastonbury Guide
Glastonbury – the lowdown:
Glastonbury is the most legendary of all British music festivals. It’s been going since the ’70s and every year it hosts the world’s biggest names in music. The vast site is attended by an eclectic crowd – from trendy celebrities and face-painted teenagers, to stag dos, families with kids, and middle-aged rock fans holding on to their lost youths. Because it often rains, the event has gained a reputation for being a very muddy affair. Hence the classic Glasto accessory – a pair of Wellington boots.
