Hello Glastonbury Obsessors,
I'm new here and I am happy to say that I will finally be going to Glastonbury next year! Having spent the last 6 years failing to get tickets it feels surreal that I will actually be going.
As well as it being the 50th anniversary next year, it will also mark 40 years since my dad's first Glastonbury. Both my dad and my mum went throughout the 80s and early 90s (a couple of years with my late Grandad), back when you sent off for tickets in the post, Fela Kuti would be headlining and Jo Whiley was no where to be found.
As kids me and my brother were teased and eased into the festival life with numerous visits to Cropredy, Cambridge Festivals and Canterbury Fayre from the late 90s onwards. Since 2011 i've been going to festivals with my own friends; Reading, Parklife and far too many V Festivals for my liking (please don't judge).
But having grown up listening to my parents' endless stories and priceless memories of Glasto and having been lurking here for some time now, I cannot wait to experience it myself - once and for all. June could not come sooner.
See you at the meet up!
