I am sorry I have been absent for the past few days. I just got back from Glastonbury. Yes that Glastonbury! One of the biggest music festivals in the world! It was everything you would imagine it to be, and everything everyone has ever said about it. The mud, the good old Peace and Love vibe, the sun, and then the rain, and then sun again, and then more rain, amazing music, crazy people, the list goes on. I absolutely LOVED it. I can honestly say that it was one of the coolest things I have ever done.
But why talk about it? Words won’t do it any justice anyway. Let me show you what I saw.
I could see the Pyramid Stage from my “house”.
Lots and lots of people.
Cool art and sculptures everywhere.
This parrot & shark duo.
A bride-to-be and her bridesmaids. ♥
Pirates! – And some tall dude walking past, thinking that this is the most normal thing in the world.
And the music, of course. Always the music… Here is De la Soul on the Pyramid Stage.
Foster the People
And Arcade Fire!
I also saw Blondie (Yes, Blondie! Debbie Harry!) and Gaz Coombes (as in Supergrass Gaz Coombes).
Glastonbury is absolutely huge. There are more than 100 stages which means that you are constantly hearing a band or a DJ playing something somewhere (and the crowds cheering). On the other hand, this also means that it is not physically possible to see everything. I had my favorite artists in mind (Hello, Jack White! Hello, Black Keys!), so I planned accordingly, but due to certain inevitable clashes, I missed a few sets that I really wanted to see (Manic Street Preachers, for example, and Kaiser Chiefs). Oh well… there is always next year! :0)
Stay tuned for Day 2. I’ll show you more madness, more art, more people, Lana Del Rey, Robert Plant and of course, Jack White.
Lots of love.
