Glastonbury-on-Sea 2020

Recommended Posts

I was just browsing through the (really underrated, especially for first-timers) 'AREAS' section of the official site, and noticed the erstwhile seaside-y newcomers to the festival have won the race to be the first to update their section for 2020!

https://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/areas/glastonbury-on-sea/

It has a cool drawing, a photo gallery and video of 2019 highlights, and a teaser for what to expect in 6 and a half months.

It's exciting to see wheels in motion for the festival, especially having not been since 2017.

I dig it. A lot found it to be underwhelming last year but I think that it's meant to be a spot that you just dip through once or twice over the weekend. If people were meant to spend hours there loads of people wouldn't get to see it.

Have they finished building it yet?

Yep it’s underwater ... you will see it when the Somerset tide goes out

I didn't manage to get in last year, it was so busy once it fully opened. Hoping to get a look when I can next get to the fest. 

 

Also agreed about the Areas website, always a good read to get me excited 😁

We went on around 10.30 on the Friday and it was brilliant. Hardly anyone around, I even set the high score on the 1942 machine.

Was it 50p’s the pinball machines took? I might have to save some up...

The arcade machines were free IIRC.

it was a shame it wasn’t ready in time for the Wednesday or Thursday but when it opened it was well worth a visit.

Yeah I don't remember paying.

It was fairly quiet when I visited but I couldn't tell you when that was. I would guess Friday afternoon some time.

Yeah, I went on Saturday (11.38 according to my phone) and I could just walk on. I took this video from the end.

And possibly a smattering of white as well?
