Glastonbury has grown considerably over the years from a small ‘hippie’ orientated festival to a full-blown arts weekend which some say has gone against its roots.

The majority of people that visit Glastonbury will camp in tents but there are also designated areas for camper vans as well as VIP areas full of pre-built tents and luxury accommodation.
