Glastonbury 2007: arriving on site, Wednesday
A walk around the festival site. (Photos/words © urban75, 25th June 2007)
"In ancient times, hundreds of years before the dawn of history.
There lived a strange race of people...the Druids.
No one knows who they were, or what they were doing...
but their legacy remains...
hewn into the living rock of Stonehenge...".
Arriving on site. Look at all that lovely grass! And the space!
Setting up in the backstage area.
Mindful of the floods of 2005, we pitched up tent at the highest point we could find that wasn't too close to the toilets, away from any noisy generators and unlikely to be on a main access route where pissed people might fall into our tent at night (yes, that's happened in the past).
We also tried to mathematically calculate the optimum distance between the tent next to us - pitch too far away and you'll wake up with a small tent full of farty people wedged in your entrance, pitch too close and your neighbour will think you're being a little over friendly. There's quite a science to all this, you know..
It was strange walking along empty roads that only 12 hours before were rammed full of people.
A brave attempt by the organisers to stop people pissing by the trees.
Sadly, I suspect the catchy slogan was not enough to halt the onslaught of spent beer over the weekend.
Walking past the Pyramid tent on Wednesday afternoon.
Wednesday night was lovely, with drinkers relaxing on the lush grass next to the Cider Bus.
A delightfully quiet scene by the bar.
Queen Delilah was, once again, one of our favourite food stop-offs. Their veggie beanburgers were lovely!
