If high-profile bands, celebrities in their best sloppy outfits and camping alongside 150,000 other dedicated music lovers sounds like your idea of heaven, this is the festival for you.

The Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts is without doubt the world’s most enormous outdoor performing arts festival. It comprises 900 acres of euphoric partying and chilled-out fun in its many forms, all crammed annually into the last weekend in June (three days).

There are headlining rock bands surrounded by worshipful crowds of teenage fans at the pyramid stage, whole fields of nostalgic, flower power-fuelled proponents of alternative therapies and everything imaginable in between.
