Are we capturing the moment to look back only to realise that we viewed that moment through a screen even though we were sat in the middle. Are we missing those moments because we're in a bid to show the world what we're doing, to share, to connect... Is that a bad thing?

How Not to Lose Friends and Alienate People at Glastonbury Festival

It's the pinnacle of the musical calendar and the unofficial stomping ground for the devastatingly cool and famous. Thanks to the other 200,000 mortal attendees, it's also one of the most overtly stereotyped and satirised events of the year where you're only ever one floral headband away from a cliché.

Year on year, the amount of time set aside to covering Glastonbury seems to increase. The Worthy Farm extravaganza also seemed to appear in every news bulletin. Undoubtedly it is the UK's most famous music festival, but that is all it is. A music festival. Singers performing on a stage in front of thousands of people is not a news item.

Yes Kanye's an Idiot, But Is Trying to Get Him Banned From Glastonbury Really More About Race?

Sophia Eribo | Posted 18.05.2015 | UK Entertainment
Sophia Eribo
