Yes, Tardis is doing Glastonbury again, well actually we’ve already done it, right by the iconic pyramid stage too !
In our case, despite having our banjo and washboards ready to give the performance of a lifetime, we were delivering waste tanks for use during the festival, forty eight of them to be precise.
First thing that shocks about Glastonbury site, is the sheer size. It’s enormous to say the least.
We arrived with the second batch of waste tanks, issued a special delivery pass by the organisers and then waited in a large compound to be guided to where the tanks were needed.
Shortly after, a friendly lad named Jason led us through acres of green farmland to a location right by the pyramid stage, where we unloaded the tanks and they put ID markers on them so they wouldn’t get lost when utilised around the festival site.
With three weeks to go, the site was pretty busy all over and well organised.
Our banjo and washboard medley rejected on the grounds of talent, or lack of it, this year’s confirmed line up includes:
Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Barry Gibb, Katy Perry, Kriss Kristofferson, The Jacksons to name just the ones we’ve heard of.
This year, there’s over a hundred stages and supporting such worthy causes as WaterAid, Oxfam and Greenpeace.
Here at Tardis, we’ve a theory, based on the fact we saw nothing but green grass and firm ground everywhere we went on the site. Therefore, they must ship all that mud in for people to wallow in.
It’s only a theory and like all of those like us who don’t have tickets for the entertainment, we’ll be watching out for the mud and the superb musical performances coming from Worthy Farm from the 21st to the 25th of June.
