This is the story of the first time we ever played a British music festival: Glastonbury. It's also an excellent example of the survival modes that help us get through the "anything can happen" possibilities of travelling.
Over the past few years, music fans of a nostalgic disposition have been treated to a series of glorious, tear-inducing comebacks by bands who stole a piece of our hearts and soundtracked a period of our lives.
I'm not sure exactly when it happened, but somewhere along the line in Hollywood, romantic comedies became 'chick flicks'. I'll wager this: that it was around the same time that romcoms started to lose their "com". Instead, the funniest writers and performers in Hollywood concentrated on creating out-and-out comedy films. And by 'out-and-out' comedy films, I mean: comedies not targeted at female audiences. Or as they're also known in Hollywood: comedies.
Glastonbury is one of the longest running musical festivals in the UK, with revelers descending on Michael Eavis' Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset, nearly every year since 1970. Many of music's biggest names have played the festival over the years, including David Bowie, Beyonce, The Rolling Stones, Oasis, Blur, Amy Winehouse, The Killers, Coldplay, Arctic Monkeys and Kanye West. 2016 saw Adele headline the famous Pyramid Stage for the first time, alongside Coldplay and Muse. Radiohead, Ed Sheeran and Foo Fighters have been confirmed as 2017's headliners, topping the bill on the Pyramid Stage. Other performers include Katy Perry, Stormzy, The XX and Lorde. The festival will take a break in 2018, and return in 2019 at a new location in the Midlands, where it will be called the Variety Bazaar. Glastonbury will then resume as normal in 2020.
