GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL’S VISUAL DELIGHTS

Glastonbury Festival

What I knew about Glastonbury Festival was that it has a huge number of fields where people camp, get muddy, wear very cool quirky clothes and watch epic performances on different stages dotted around the site. I mean, this is what is widely publicised on tv and in magazines after all but what I didn’t realise until I got there was the magic of Glastonbury Festival’s visual delights.

Being a lover of design, decor and art, my mind was completely blown by just how many spectacular sites there were. I couldn’t get enough of it. And so for those who are interested in this side of Glastonbury, here are some of my fav visual delights from the world-famous festival (along with shoppable galleries of Boho Ladies Fashion, Boho Vibes Decor and Boho Wedding favs)…

GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL'S VISUAL DELIGHTS

Glastonbury Festival’s Visual Delights

The Healing Field is full of inspiration, reflection and ways to put life into perspective.

‘Give every day the chance to become the most beautiful of your life’

‘To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest achievement’

I loved reading the hopes and wishes that others had tied to a fence with multi-coloured ribbon whilst making my own.

And just look at how beautiful some of the tents are? Complete with little welcoming touches like the painted door, oriental umbrella, flower pots, lanterns and bunting. The experience I had with the healer in this tent is one I shall never forget; I had never done anything like this before and was pretty nervous about it but when she said I’d leave emotional (I sobbed uncontrollably) but with a huge smile on my face she wasn’t wrong.

Beautiful Boho to Buy

The fashion is widely covered at Glastonbury but I didn’t expect the array of different shops. Sequin jackets and vintage clothing galore, art and sculptures, toys, accessories and jewellery, dream catchers (which I bought for my girls’ bedrooms), furniture, it’s all there.

GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL'S VISUAL DELIGHTS

This feather headdress looks sooooo good on my friend Jen, don’t you think?

I can’t imagine rocking up like this on the school run so it was rather exciting to visit a tent and choose the colours and textures for our adorned faces to get into the festival spirit. My daughters would be sooooo jealous!

Diverse Performances

Performances span far wider than the music on the main stages. Circus, cabaret, comedy, dance and other forms of performing art are there on a huge scale.

We were also lucky enough to have VIP passes and get side of stage so I simply have to share a pic from this angle as the amount of people and flags blowing in the wind is simply spectacular!

Glastonbury Festival The Other Stage

Beautiful Decor

Sitting on patterned cushions in a Raj style tent under a beautifully decorated ceiling complete with fairy lights and lanterns whilst sharing a shisha pipe with a dear friend and watching the world go by is one of my favourite memories. To get there we walked through an entrance adorned with beautiful lanterns and sculptures; isn’t the craftsmanship and scale simply spectacular?

This is my ultimate recommendation if you want to experience Glastonbury Festival’s visual delights.

VIP Area

Just one small area inside one relatively small hospitality tent and yet look at the detail in these suspended floral decorations, hot air balloons and rainbow coloured bunting. Just thinking about how long it must take to not only set up this festival from a practical perspective but to decorate every area with details like this completely blows my mind.

The hot air balloon tent may have been where we spotted David and Brooklyn Beckham getting food with Dynamo at 1.30am and it may also be where saw Rita Ora, Kit Harrington from Game of Thrones and Ellie Goulding but I couldn’t possibly confirm 😉

The Hollywood or Glastonbury sign? I know which one I’d visit again…

Not once did I think, ‘oh yeah, I’m going to Glastonbury Festival, I bet I’ll see a field swarmed with doppelgängers in a miniature Glasto site made by festival goers and riding past it a man juggling whilst on a giant bike with bubbles floating from its back’ but we did and that’s why I blooming love it!

My final visual delight has to be the mud, mud, glorious mud. Love it or loathe it, it’s part of the history of what makes Glastonbury so memorable.

The atmosphere is indescribable and now I’ve been I completely get why people are desperate to go year on year for their Glasto-fix.

Glastonbury Festival, you absolutely and unexpectedly have my heart. You are mad, you are wonderful, you are magical, you are an adventure and a spectacle of visual delights that blew my mind; I hope we meet again.

Until next time,
