music in review. music in discussions.


|| After a two-year hiatus, the prestigious festival is back this weekend. ||

Since its embarkment in 2019, Worthy Farm will be littered with over 200,000 festival-goers again this June weekend. In a festival world where you go for anything but the headliners, it’s set to be a Glastonbury like no other.

While Billie herself feels “undeserving” of such a headline slot, she certainly has earned her place amongst those who have took to the Pyramid stage in past years – as she sets to make history by becoming the youngest ever solo artist to headline.

More of an eclectic dabble of circus tricks and otherworldly entertainment as opposed to solely a static music festival, Glastonbury has rightly earned an accolade of being the mother of all festivals.

A festival steeped in symbolic British history and political importance – the pre-emptive mining strikes of in the ’70s and the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament spring to immediate mind – it embodies everything we love about music, entertainment and the Arts.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to sing the festivals’ praises in person as I lucked out of tickets again for another year but luckily, BBC coverage is legendary as ever. Not legendary in the sense to cover the 100 stages at the festival site, mind.. But still legendary enough.

Let me know if you are going to this years’ festivities. If so, who are you most excited to see?

    • Yeah, it’s great isn’t it? Certainly no judgement as to who’s performing on what on stage and who’s notoriously “bigger” than ours – apart from the headliner acts of course. I’m feeling melancholic after it all now.. here’s hoping we grab tickets for next year in 2023!

    • Nooo I’m not unfortunately! I didn’t manage to grab tickets this time around – they’re like gold dust! It’s on the bucket list for one year. We’ll invest all our time and energy into that one year – that’ll be our holiday!
