The Festival wants people to think about their journey to the Festival, to use public transport, or if coming by car to share transport with others. The Festival is committed to minimising the amount of waste, and managing the on site collection of that waste efficiently, 'reduce, reuse and recycle'.
Glastonbury Festival believes that work begins at home, at Worthy Farm. Looking after the fields, the hedges and the livestock has always been the Festival's number one concern, and it is what life is all about. Please take everything you bring and your litter home with you and 'leave no trace'.
Festivals goers should think responsibly when they are packing their things to take to the Festival, and not bring items that will end up in Landfill, or that they won't want to take back home again, remember to "Limit what you bring, and clean up behind you."
The Festival site is not expected to open before 8.00am on Wednesday 24th June. The option to sleep in the car parks in the evening on Tuesday night will once again be in operation. Please note there are no facilities available in the car parks on Tuesday night and people are expected to stay in their cars. It is also expected that Campervans will be able to arrive from Tuesday afternoon. From 8.00am on Wednesday pedestrian gates operate 24 hours a day until the end of the Festival. If you have any problems with your ticket, or getting on site, there are enquiry cabins at each pedestrian gate to assist you.
