Every autumn we see the annual scramble for tickets to Glastonbury festival. On October 9, 2016 tickets for the 250,000 capacity Glastonbury festival sold out in just 35 minutes. Of course, that is not the end of the road for Glastonbury fans. The official Glastonbury festival lineup will be released in the next couple of weeks. Shortly after that, fans who now find that they no longer wish to attend, can cancel their attendance and their Glastonbury tickets will be offered for resale on the official Glastonbury website. There will, of course, be a scramble for the Glastonbury ticket re-sale, but would fans be better advised to go elsewhere, for example to Bearded Theory Festival?
Glastonbury festival of performing arts is undoubtedly the most famous music festival in the world. Tickets for Glastonbury festival go on sale months before fans know which acts will be playing. If you want to attend Glastonbury festival you need to be online at 9 a.m. on a Sunday morning in October. If you are a few minutes late you can forget it as millions of people from around the world scramble to get a connection to the ticket agents. Glastonbury sells out in minutes.

A final batch of Glastonbury Photos.
I realise most normal people will be out enjoying themselves on a Friday evening, but I’m stuck at home with the dreaded large and feeling as rough as a badgers arse.
To cheer myself up a bit I have been trawling my photos again and chose these ones because I think they are fun. I just love some of the facial expressions 🙂 I know I’m cruel.
You can’t help but wonder what Enter Shikari drummer Rob Rolfe just spotted in the crowd. I also wonder if Lenny Henry and Neville Staple have ever been seen in the same room?
As there is nothing on TV I find myself drawn once again to the photographs I amassed on my travels around music festivals during the Summer.
Most of these were shot on the smaller stages. Why don’t you have a look and see if you saw any of the acts included.
It seems that Winter is starting to arrive here in Dorset as the third storm in as many days passes through.
I thought you might like to see a few photographs of Artists on some of the smaller stages on Thursday of this years Glasto. These are from the Avalon Cafe, Shangrihell and the Greenfields area.
Glastonbury 2015 was a buzz.
As it is such an awful day weatherise here in Dorset I have been cheering myself up by browsing through some of my memories from this years Glastonbury festival. I thought some of you might like to see them too.
This time four weeks ago I was getting ready to come home from Glastonbury. If you haven’t been to Glastonbury it is a huge shock to the system. The sheer scale of it all is stunning. It can easily take a full hour to walk from one side of the site to the other. The site at Glastonbury is the size of a small city both in area and population for a week every June
I spent at lot of time in the Field of Avalon this year and to walk from that stage to my camper van was a walk of 4.3 Kilometres. The camper van fields are vast, though it must be said, well organised and friendly. If you are camping onsite it is perhaps a little better though less comfortable. It never ceases to amaze me that you can camp in sight of the main stages at Glastonbury.
The atmosphere at Glastonbury is amazing. People come to party and they party hard but the atmosphere is overwhelmingly friendly. There is entertainment available 24-hours a day for the duration of the festival. The array of food available is absolutely incredible and unlike some of the big festivals you don’t get ripped off. Glastonbury even allows you to carry a reasonable amount of alcohol into the arena.
Glastonbury isn’t for everyone. Personally I wouldn’t want to do it with small kids (though it is very child friendly) as I walked over 80 miles over the five days of the festival. My memories are in Photographs so here are a few of my favourites.
James Bay is an up and coming British artist. He has already scored a No1 album with his debut release The Chaos And The Calm.
These images were shot during his performance on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival in June 2015. If you look in the top left corner of a couple of the images you can see Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan from One Direction watching Bay’s performance.
