Glastonbury Music Festival is a popular five-day festival of traditional classical performing arts, which takes place at Pilton, Somerset. Besides classical music, this famous festival also hosts performance art, comedy, dance, circus, and many other performing arts. The festival is famous for its “ardy night” music, which features popular dance performances and songs. Many of the performers at this music festival are from abroad.
This festival was first held in 1993 and is one of the most popular music events of the year. It has a strong tradition of booking local up-and-coming talent. It also grows increasingly popular with each year that it is held. The latest act to get an invitation to perform at the Glastonbury Music Festival was The Warlocks. They recently performed at the Reading Festival and had a string of UK Top Ten hits.
The festival is an annual event, which starts on the Friday before Ash Wednesday and lasts until Sunday evening. However, there are special evenings during the week, including the “day of the festivals”. During this time, there are many workshops and talks, featuring local talent. There is often live music performances. During these sessions, you will be able to enjoy the fantastic atmosphere and excellent cuisine. You will be able to visit many of the different stalls selling different foods, crafts and clothing.
If you are looking for something a little bit more unusual at this festival, you can try the Magners Rock Gardens. It is an open air museum where you can see Victorian gardens like those found in Leadenhall Market. You can also go on guided tours, learn about the history of the area, smell the flowers in bloom and go into the rock garden itself. The festival also features a free entertainment area for children.
Other music-related activities include a range of workshops and gigs in the main arena. There are also workshops, including yoga and acoustic guitar, as well as folk and jazz evenings. The festival’s biggest attraction is of course the stage and the performances by the headline act, but it is also a good idea to take some time to walk around the area, sit down and have a look around. This will give you an opportunity to see some of the less popular venues as well.
It is best to arrive early to the Glastonbury Music Festival. On each day, different bands take to the stage, so by the time you get up, you may not want to leave. You can spend the afternoon wandering around trying to spot a stall and then heading to the main arena for the evening’s festivities. Once you arrive, you will find that there are a number of other performers doing their thing. They include local bands, Celtic musicians, dance groups, DJs and of course, the star attraction: The Rolling Stones.
One of the most popular things about attending the Glastonbury Music Festival is that there are no age restrictions. So long as you are over eighteen, you are free to enter the main arena. You will also be able to enjoy all of the shows on three separate stages, so you get a chance to see everything there is to see and do. If you want to be more specific about what you want to do and see, you can sign up to attend a specialised entertainment package. These come with certain credentials, so make sure you check them out before you buy.
As well as just the music, you will also be treated to a variety of workshops and talks that have been organised by the festival. These are specifically designed to help you get more involved in the events and activities of the day. You can learn a lot about the background of the festival, the history of the town and what it is about. By taking part in one of these workshops, you will start to understand what makes Glastonbury special.
