A small town in Somerset, England, next door to the county Dorset. Its a very pretty, historic town, and is well known for the glasotnbury tor, up on the hill. This hill can be seen for miles around Glastonbury, which leads on to the famous Glastonbury festival. The festival is locatedin Pilton, about 2 miles from Glastonbury, but you can see the tor from the festival, and as it is the closest prominant town to the festival,so it takes its name. the festival is an amazing place, like a city that springs ups from nowhere for a couple of days per year. the green fields host the more traditional festival, most like when the festival first started, as a gathering on mr Michael Evis's land, with healing and meditation tents, and the tipi field is such a tranquil place. around the main pyramid stage, where the more commercial side of the festival lies, is completely different. still an amazing atmosphere, with everybody just happy to be there. on wednesday and thurday at the festival, before the music starts is good wil all round, and random cheers through the crowds start up and travel all around the festival site. all in all, the festival appeals to such a wide range of people, original traditional grass roots festival goers and people who prefer to spend there time around the dance village.
I had an amazing time at glastonbury this year, people say its overrated, but only when you've been can you know the sheer diversity that it holds.
