Glastonbury is a week away 

The wait for the UK mega festival Glastonbury is now less than a week. The outdoor event, for contemporary performing arts, begins June 22nd and closes on the 26th. Located at Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset, the yearly  event has mounted great anticipation and fervor amongst music lovers since it began in 1970. Along with current  music, the festival accommodates comedy, dance, cabaret, theater, and other events within the arts spectrum. Leading pop and rock artists usually headline along the main stage. There are also thousands of other acts appearing on smaller stages and performance areas.


This year’s lineup includes Muse, Adele, Tame Impala, Jess Glynne, Skepta, Coldplay, Ellie Goulding, and others. It’s also rumored that pop icon Rihanna will do a surprise cameo during Coldplay’s set.


The event will also have its first women only venue called “The Sisterhood” this year. Glastonbury calls it a “revolutionary clubhouse,” in which the venue’s staff, performers, and security will all be women.

The festival is the largest greenfield concert in the world with the expectation of over 180,000 in attendance. The event always had extensive media coverage from television to newspapers. A good portion of the staffers are volunteers from the area using this global intersection between music and culture to promote good causes. There will be more to come soon on this festival which is one of the highlights of the concert season

Here’s some of last year’s performances:
