All of the venues serve tea and coffee so you don’t have to hit the drink all day.

Ticket are priced at £10 for a wristband to cover all of the venues and music. Tickets go on sale from Monday 30th November online from Bristol Ticket Shop plus from Jaywalk Guitars and the venues.

Event organiser and Glastonbury FM presenter Ian Liversidge said, "We have a magical town for music and entertainment and want to show off the great small venues we have. Glastonbury is more than one muddy event in the summer and week after week we have some great music on. I have always thought the town is more than capable of putting on a smaller scale Dot to Dot/ Camden Crawl type event and have always wanted to do something like this.

"We have a magnificent line up of acts from the West and beyond who are touring nationally and have played some great festivals. This is my favourite time of year for new music and we intend to highlight this. Each of the venues has a different style and you can go from one to the other or stay in the same venue. We are staggering the starts at each venue to encourage people to see what Glastonbury has to offer and hope that people try their hardest to get to each venue."
