Glastonbury Festival started in 1970 with humble beginnings. Held the day after Jimi Hendrix died, “word got around” and it grew into a two-day cultural phenomena. It’s now one of the most influential music festivals of all time, every year.
Glastonbury is now an epic 5-day journey that it pays to be prepared for. Here’s what the internet has to say about the festival to help you prepare for an awesome Glastonbury next year.
