The Glastonbury festival started in 1970 as the pop, folk & blues event held on Worthy farm in Shepton Mallet, Somerset. In 1971, the festival moved to coincide with the summer solstice and this year sees the first pyramid stage.

Glastonbury has consistently and sometimes controversially drawn the biggest name in music and entertainment including David Bowie, Blur, The Cure, The Prodigy, Oasis and Jay-Z to name but a few.
2019 promises to be another legendary year with a total of 2,800 performances across 79 stage over the 5 days; it's safe to say no one will be short of something to do. The year sees the like of Stormzy, The Cure, Lewis Capaldi, Billie Eilish and poets Fay Roberts & Dominic Berry along with DJ's, yoga mindfulness, dancing areas and much, much more.
