Congratulations: you’re going to Glastonbury! Yes, you’ve somehow managed to successfully navigate the great annual ticket scramble and have emerged from the rabble, bruised and battered, clutching the keys to paradise.
But once you get to paradise, a small quandary arises: where should you pitch your tent? There’s plenty of grassy spots (which hopefully won’t become muddy spots after a torrential downpour on the Thursday morning) on offer, as the festival swells to an area that covers 1.4 square miles with a perimeter than runs a staggering 8.5 miles – it is, after all, ‘the largest greenfield music and performing arts festival in the world.’
And so with 150,000 fellow revellers all jostling for elbow room upon arrival, it might be wise to do a wee bit of forward planning first. This is where we come in: here’s our handy guide to the 21 camping spots on offer, with their location, pros and cons, and overall verdict on each site’s suitability all mapped out for your viewing and planning convenience.
