Glastonbury Festival 2011

Glastonbury Festival 2011

June 22 - 26
Worthy Farm, Pilton, UK
Bookmark and Share  

The 2011 Glastonbury Festival is a whole world of its own. One of the biggest (they claim to be THE biggest) in the world, the festival is 900 acres of music and art and community in the Vale of Avalon, with mythology and religious traditions that are hundreds of years old. 900 ACRES. That's more than a lot. That's an empire. King Arthur might even be buried there.


There's still room for a Friday night "special guest" on the Park Stage, and Emily Eavis told Lauren Laverne on BBC 6Music that it's not Led Zeppelin.


“There’s a slot on the Saturday which we have booked a set for which is really really exciting, but the slot on the Friday is not booked yet,” she added. “So for those of you thinking we might have Led Zepplin, you aren’t right. We haven’t actually got anyone yet.”


Announced headliners for 2011 are Beyonce, Coldplay and U2. Check out the complete 2011 Glastonbury lineup below.


The Glastonbury Festival is looking for cooks and kitchen helpers to work in June and July -- you get paid and also receive a staff past for the festival. Find out more


The Glastonbury Festival has been around for 35 years, and shortly after it's beginning, it became a haven for hippies that were coming from celebrating the Summer Solstice at Stonehenge. Later they built a giant pyramid that served as a cowshed and animal food store when the festival was not going on.


The Glastonbury Festival has consistently grown over time, and has thus had to sometimes change locations to accomodate the growing crowd. There has also been a history of struggle with licensing restrictions, and Glastonbury organizers always seem to prevail in making sure the show goes on.


In addition to the music, there's also theatre, circus, cabaret, community.


Glastonbury has named its full 2011 lineup!


There's supposedly a (not so secret) Radiohead show happening, so check back for video of the Radiohead gig.
