Glastonbury 2013


Well, I return from a weekend of rain, sun, walking, dancing, singing and cocktails in a tin. And I made it back in one piece!  

We had a fabulous time - probably the best Glastonbury so far.

One way in which this Glasto was different for me to previous years is that we weren't really camping; we were 'glamping'. At Land & Sky we had a yurt waiting for us instead of a tent with access to showers, nice toilets and even a hairdryer and straighteners! Amazing!


The only downside was that the place felt so far away from the main site where all the fun was. We ended up doing a hell of a lot of walking!


When we arrived on the Thursday afternoon, it was pouring with rain and it didn't stop for most of the night - it was pretty dismal. Of course, you should probably expect this kind of weather at Glastonbury...but I had been promised by the weather people that this year it was going to be dry! Dry, dry, dry! They're never right are they?


But following the downpour and a couple of showers on the Friday morning, that was it. The weather stayed mild and a lot of the time it was lovely and sunny. We did lots of exploring, ate nice food, watched some great live music and danced like loons.

We also got access to the hospitality tent courtesy of the place we were staying. We didn't see anyone too exciting though - just a couple of Radio DJ's like Chris Moyles and Nick Grimshaw - but it was a nice base to chill out of the rain/sun and away from the huge crowds.


Highlights of Glastonbury? Drinking vodka jellies at The Rolling Stones, dancing crazy to The Correspondents and a lovely performance on the last day by Jessie Ware.

I felt sad as we left Worthy Farm last night. All that planning, euphoria and excitement comes to an end rather abruptly. I'd recommend going to Glastonbury at least once in your life if you can; it really is a fantastic experience and whether you're camping it or glamping it, it's definitely worthwhile.

I'm already looking forward to next year!

  4. Glamping is definitely the way to do it! Glastonbury is ridiculously awesome. I got very jealous watching it on TV and seeing people's pictures popping up. Even my parents went, which made me feel very uncool in comparison to them!

  5. Is there any other way to do it than Glamp?! I can't imagine it being much fun when you're tired, cold, wet and have rubbish hair!

    I LOVE the guy with the lizard hair... and the hangover guy and your outfits. Don't even get me started on those doughnuts etc!!

    1. I suppose you could stay in a B&B! Or just get a really big tent and get there early to pitch it. I never found camping that bad actually although I've never experienced a totally rainy Glasto thank goodness.

      The lizard hair was mental!

    1. Thank you. The dress actually stayed surprisingly white!

      Although then I got it home and accidentally dyed it pink in the wash. Massive fail.
