Like most festivals in the UK Glastonbury is all about two things, listening to live music and having a great time with friends while doing so. The festival has been running since 1970 and has grown every year to have more people attending and more performers playing. Now the festival is so large that potential attendees need to compete with each other when the tickets are made available to ensure they get a place. It's easily the most popular festival in the UK, and offers more than just music for people to come and see and experience over the weekend.
Fair ground rides make an appearance at the festival, giving people a chance to let off some steam while waiting for their preferred band to play and have a good time with their friends. By having all of this to do, Glastonbury avoids anyone being bored and provides a wealth of things to do that no other festival can compare to.
