As we finally move away from winter weather many of us are putting plans in place for our summer holidays. For a great many of us this usually means one thing – attending the Glastonbury festival. Over the years we’ve proudly come to be one of the leading, most trusted names for motorhome hire in the UK for those going to the festival.
There has been an overwhelmingly positive reaction to news that American rock legends the Foo Fighters will be one of the three headliners at the 2017 Glastonbury Festival. The band, fronted by former Nirvana legend Dave Grohl, was scheduled to appear at the 2015 festival before injury forced them to cancel. At the time of writing there was still no confirmation of who the third headline act will be.
Tickets for the 2017 Glastonbury festival sold out within minutes of being put on sale, as has been the case with every event held since 2008. With this being the last time it will be held at the current grounds for at least two years there was, however, increased demand for these tickets. No exact figure has been released, but it is believed that the attendance – in terms of tickets sold – will be 135,000, as per the last 7 festivals.
Whilst attendance at the Glastonbury festival is usually associated with camping in tents there’s been an ever increasing number of people who have decided to make use of camper vans and motorhomes instead. The often unpredictable nature of the weather over the last weekend of June has seen many rather wish for the comfort and safety they offer. Organisers of the festival have always had an understanding of this wish, and have made areas linked to the festival site available for use by those using the vehicles.
If you’re one of the lucky 135,000 going to Glastonbury this year then we certainly hope you enjoy the Foo Fighters, along with all the other acts scheduled to appear. We know that if you make use of our motorhome hire that your stay at the site will be a pleasant, comfortable and relaxing one. With over 30 pickup and drop off points across England and Scotland we make sure you have an accessible and affordable way to enjoy your stay at Glastonbury.
