Forget camping, forget glamping; we’ve got the ultimate way for you to enjoy Glastonbury: From your own bed.
Glastonbury weekend is on the horizon and instead of being on Worthy Farm, you’re stuck at home. You’re sad, we get it, but you have absolutely no reason to be sad.
Smelly toilets, no showers, no phones because your battery died as soon as you got on site… Glastonbury can be a truly scary experience. But don’t worry, we’ve got the ultimate guide for you Hampers (Get it? ‘Home’ and ‘Camping’?) on how to enjoy Glastonbury from home.
1) Get a mud pack: If you’re really desperate for the mud experience, do it the glam way. Get yourself a fancy mud pack, cover your face and plonk yourself in front of the TV.
2) Stock up on the essentials: Go traditional with snacks; think crisps, chocolates, sweets etc, or go for the full on Glastonbury experience and get yourself a greasy burger from your local chippy.
3) Showers are still necessary: You’re not on a farm, you can still have a shower, make use of it.
Ok, so you’re ready to enjoy all the sounds that Glastonbury has to offer. “But how do I watch it?!” we hear you screaming! Don’t worry, we’ve got that covered too. Here’s how you can enjoy all the best Glastonbury performances.
1) TV: The BBC is your home for all things Glastonbury. Selected performances will be shown on BBC Two and BBC Four from Friday 24th June at 7pm. These will be highlighted performances from throughout each day and in most cases will also include a full showing of each day’s headline performance. Digital users will also be able to watch more performances via the BBC Red Button.
2) Online: The BBC Glastonbury homepage is your hub for everything related to Glastonbury so it might be a good idea to bookmark the page for easy access.
