Lose yourself at the legendary Glastonbury Festival

Pilton, Somerset

Experience a weekend of music, arts and comedy at the south-west’s most iconic farm, where festival-goers have been flocking in their thousands since the seventies.

When it comes to music festivals, Glasto is the granddaddy of them all. Every year (bar those when the land is ‘rested’), around 175,000 people armed with tents, deck chairs and designer wellies, spend the weekend listening to the biggest names in music – which have included The Rolling Stones, Jay Z and Ed Sheeran in recent years. Announcements for this year's festival have begun with Stormzy, Janelle Monáe and Kylie Minogue confirmed to appear across the weekend.

Tickets famously fly out quickly, but the BBC streams most of the main stage sets for live TV, so you can enjoy them from the comfort of your own home (far less muddy)! If you did manage to grab a ticket, keep your eyes peeled while on site - aside from the on-stage action, you may end up rubbing shoulders (or sharing a toilet queue) with celebrities, musicians and even royalty. Prince Harry is a regular visitor, although somehow, we doubt that his maj’ has to brave the Portaloo line...

Alongside world-class music, poetry and other distractions, the food here is awesome too, with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options to boot.

Glastonbury 2019 takes place between 26-30 June.
