Muddy Hell: Glastonbury’s Filthiest Moments

By 27th June 2013 No Comments

Will Glastonbury 2013 be a muddy one? The jury’s out, but after a year off and a headlining slot from the Stones, you can’t hide from the hype about the biggest festival in the world. Mud or no mud, Glastonbury is still a pretty filthy place to be, thanks to its rickety Portaloos and cesspit-style ‘long-drop’ toilets. Not going this year? While your friends post glamorous hotpants-and-glitter pictures on Facebook, let’s take a look at the reality of Glastonbury. Because beyond the designer wellies and glamorous celebrities, Glastonbury is rather like a particularly grueling endurance test. Watch at home and console yourself with the fact you definitely won’t have to face scenes like this…
