Glastonbury 2011 is a three-day extravaganza that traditionally sprawls over five days with the majority of fans turning up on the Wednesday before it kicks off to watch the festival build up.
Over 170,000 festival-goers take up more than 1000 Somerset acres to witness performances from the world’s biggest artists down to the outright obscure. Irrespective of nationality, genre, fashion or age any band, artist, speaker, thespian or poet can be booked for the greatest stage on earth
The best ‘current’ acts will take up most of the bill on the main stages, but the festival will always welcome back old favourites with Tom Jones, Shirley Bassey, Van Morrison and Johnny Cash performing in the past.
More than 1000 acts play across dozens of stages and arenas, including the Pyramid Stage, Other Stage, John Peel Tent, Jazz World, Dance Village, Left Field, Avalon, Acoustic Stage and the Park Stage.
But Glastonbury Festival is often about looking beyond the main arena with a magical maze of creative fields, relaxing leas and late-night obscurity. Many discover the famous Green Fields, infamous Stone Circle, Shangri-La and Tipi Fields for a completely unique festival experience.
Glastonbury Festival 2011 will also be heavily committed to charity and green issues with recycling encouraged, an emphasis on renewable energy sources and the highlighting of world issues.
And there’s so much more. Glasto is almost impossible to describe, it just has to be seen.
Glastonbury 2011 tickets are expected to go on sale on 3 October. Fans who wish to attend the event must at first register with the Glastonbury Festival 2011 registration system.
If you’ve already got your festival tickets why not travel by train? Most of the UK’s festivals are ideally located within a short distance of railway stations and often, the festivals provide a shuttle bus service to take you directly from the station to the site. Raileasy recommends that everyone books their train tickets early; cheap tickets are released up to 12 weeks in advance and you could save up to 80%. Go green; take the train to this year’s summer festivals.
