Mud, Sweat & Sunsets: Glastonbury

P1250567

Seeing as festival season is now in full swing and some of us are clinging onto the distant memories of Glastonbury, I’ve got two last posts to share with you. Before you wash away all that adrenaline like you have the mud get pumped for the next ticket release in October and just keep scrolling.

Back to where we left off… During the night our tent experienced an almighty storm, the masses of people laid in their campsites, bundled in their tents quietly hoping they didn’t flood and end up washed down the fields.

The happy campers woke to muddy rivers, we decided to pull up a chair, feet floating in the muck and munch on some breakfast.

Probably the best people watching spot that ever graced my eyes. Kids splashed through with grins from ear to ear, as did the adults.

One thing that makes Glastonbury so special is the fact people actually talk to each other. It really has a community feel with people going out of their way to be kind and helpful which reminds you of all the things you love about this country.

Glastonbury has a collective mix with young, old, those with disabilities and families all there with the same goals – to have a bloody great time.

This baby stole the show throwing her hands up in the air giggling away and attracting her own crowd of people ooohing and ahhhing over her.

Adele provided us with the world’s most tiring performance; it was at this moment I realized falling asleep standing up was possible. Fans loved her and brought in the biggest crowd I’ve ever seen hit the Pyramid Stage (each to their own.)

Skidded through mud praying not to face plant we headed out in search of an after party. Wearing sunglasses at night cos’ it’s Glastonbury and you can do what ya want.
