The countdown is nearly over as tomorrow thousands of music lovers will be descending on Worthy Farm in Somerset to celebrate the 44th year of the Glastonbury Festival. In 1970, the day after music legend Jimi Hendrix died, and only a few people were aware of the festival 1,500 revellers paid a pound to see greats such as; Marc Bolan and Keith Christmas. Last year saw the festival emerge like a phoenix from the ashes after a fallow year in 2011 and a year off in 2012. Acts such as the Arctic Monkeys and the Rolling Stones prompted organisers Michael and Emily Rose to post on the Festival website early on the Monday morning, ‘ Thank you for making it a truly vintage year for Glastonbury. It really was one of the best.’
Comfort and Style
Let’s face it with a few rare exceptions festivals have the potential to suffer from the extreme effects of the elements and the camping area becomes a mud bath. If you have ever been camping before then you will know that comfort win over fashion every time. As well as selecting your festival gear it would be prudent to take a number of changes of clothing and some thermals so you can party on throughout the whole weekend without just relying on the alcohol and festive spirit to keep you warm.
