Glastonbury – Love the farm. Leave no trace

Written by on July 2, 2014 in Body & Mind, Wellbeing - Comments Off on Glastonbury – Love the farm. Leave no trace

Glastonbury started back in 1970 with a mere 1,500 attendees and an entrance fee of £1 to the remote Somerset haven that is; Worthy Farm. Since then, the event has grown rapidly but the hippy, happy-go-lucky vibe still remains.

Last week, my friends and I went to Glastonbury for the very first time and we had the best five days that you could imagine. The wonderful thing about Glastonbury is that there is something for everyone. Whatever your music taste, you will be able to enjoy live performances from some of your favourites or stumble across new music to fall in love with.

The other great thing about Glastonbury, is that, it’s much more than just a music festival. The event raises money for Oxfam, Greenpeace and Wateraid and aims to drive awareness of these causes. What’s more? There are so many green, eco, and peaceful areas that you can discover yourself.
