Glastonbury Festival 2015

And so there is another Glastonbury over. I’ve got a serious case of the post-Glastonbury blues so I thought I’d share my weekend and daydream away back to Worthy Farm.

After an, ahem, eventful start (Fran!), we piled into our cars and off we drove to Somerset. We arrived at 7am and by 10am our camp was set up in the wonderful Park Home Ground, overlooking the Other Stage.

As the only one in our group of 12 that had ever been to Glastonbury before, I decided to take the group up to the top of the hill by the Stone Circle for the first night to give them an idea of the site and we were treated to the most majestic sunset.

It’s a truly magical place and I felt even more in love with it this year.

I didn’t see a bad act all weekend, but here were my two highlights:

Florence

2015FLORENCEANDTHEMACHINE_LIVE_GLASTONBURY-2015_WO-10260615.article_x4I love, love, LOVE Florence and have followed her career since she played in a tiny tent at Leeds Festival in 2008. Her set was full of energy, excitement, emotion. She showcased her fabulous new album, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, as well as the best of her back catalogue and a heartfelt version of Times Like These by the Foo Fighters. Every song was brilliant and her voice continues to give me goosebumps. What was lovely to see was how grateful and humble she was about the performance. It was incredibly moving, a real highlight of the weekend.



Lionel

Glastonberry! Hellooooooo, is it me you’re looking for?! It was just a brilliant, uplifting, hilarious set. I adored it! And so did 100,000 other people, fantastic!

After a wonderful weekend, we all watched The Who together before heading home the next morning. It was wonderful.
