Glastonbury 2018 MUST happen and needs to be longer!

For hundreds of thousands of people across the UK, this has been a particularly somber last couple weeks. Last Monday, we begrudgingly stuffed our rucksacks with any piece of clothing salvageable and packed away our tents, sleeping bags and gazebos, as we trudged out of Worthy Farm for the last time for 2 whole years. I for one, cannot accept this. 

Glastonbury, for so many of us, is home. We base our whole year around our pilgrimage to Pilton, from making sure the group is registered by September, to rounding up the troops for 9am on the first Sunday of October for tickets, to throwing around ridiculous rumours about which guest slot Daft Punk are going to play, right up to those gates opening on the last Wednesday of June. it isn't quite right without it!

The thought of not returning to Worthy Farm for another 24 months is heart breaking to say the very least, but considering that this was one of the hottest and dryest Glastonbury's on record, we put it to you Michael and Emily, to scrap the Fallow Year and allow us to return home in 2018! 

In addition, we also urge you to consider increasing the length of Glastonbury to open the gates two days earlier on the Monday morning rather than the Wednesday, giving us more time to appreciate and bask in the glory that Glastonbury has to offer. Our annual trip always goes too fast...blink and its gone....a couple extra days in Pilton would make a huge difference and would similarly encourage attendees to head to Pilton early and put money into the local community. We don't need headliners to fill our time. We make do on the Wednesday with minimal music, taking in as much of our surroundings as possible, and we would happily do the same on Monday and Tuesday. Charge us more....WE WILL PAY IT!!! 

We urge you Michael and Emily....listen to our cry! WE NEED YOU....WE NEED GLASTONBURY!
