Have you seen this site as well? Love this one to show people approximately what I mean when they say "it can't be that big"

Super, I’ve centred Glastonbury over my house, the Pyramid is just over the back fence. There’s already a hill of death, wood, and a few cows, so I just need to demolish a few neighbours properties and I’m good to go...

Interestingly Glastonbury festival is  physically smaller (just) than Glastonbury town. It also manages to squeeze 17 times the population into that space, it's a good job we all get along so well!

This is really cool but also a few years out of date it seems. Doesn't include much of the expanded campsites from the past 5 or so years (Rivermead, Pylon, Darble, South Park, Baileys, etc).

There is literally no pleasing people in this place! :D

This is awesome! I've always thought the festival to be massive (which it kind of is), yet when I compare it to my village, it suddenly doesn't seem so big. Mind blown!

Oh, I didn't mean anything negative by pointing this out. Just meant that the festival boundary is even bigger now, which would be even more impressive when overlaying on areas! 😎

Great isn't it? I find it has more impact if you put it over a major town you know well. Doesn't loook as impressive over our village, but put it on the town where I grew up and it makes more sense

It's funny how density of population skews your perception of how large an area is.  Like how the Pyramid field doesn't seem that big on the Wednesday, but seems huge when Kylie is playing.

Seems huge trying to wade through the crowd when Kylie's playing :D

It's more or less exactly the size of the district council ward I live in.

I just spent five minutes looking at the quoted text to see what you'd changed, until I realised you just put it underneath!

If you overlay it on Manchester you’ll see it’s pretty much the same size as the entire city centre. Impressive!

What we all need is proper driveways and gardens for our campsites, just to make a point. It did really surprise me how organised the paths were on the close up overhead shots they showed to make the point about tents being cleared, it'd be fascinating to trace it all.

That picture is pretty great and a high rez one will be awesome if you're allowed it.

I bet WV are really happy with their indian blanket tribute and wow the east car parks are small these days.

I put that in the other pics thread earlier. Girlfriend’s work had it done. 

I’ve asked for a high res version so we can all zoom in and see ourselves. Should get it next week hopefully. 👍🏼

Any news?

Sorry...I promise it's coming. Just need to chase GF to get the file to me - they've been a tad busy doing some events, but will chase it down and get it uploaded somewhere at some point. 

I'll post on this thread when it's available.

That sounds like 'don't call me, I'll call you' :) 

Good luck mate.  We're all counting on you.

Ok. Finally. I’ve got the ‘hi_res’. Ffs. It’s not hi-res at all. It’s 8mb 🙄

Anyone wants it - pm me your email and i’ll Send it. Or someone suggest best free place for me to upload it for download for  all. 

Sorry it took ages

It wasn’t even 8mb 🙄

3 and a bit. So attached it here (realised limit here is 7mb). Should at least be a bit better quality than the one in the media. 

Enjoy
