The festival takes place in South West England at Worthy Farm between the small villages of Pilton and Pylle in Somerset, six miles east of Glastonbury, overlooked by the Glastonbury Tor in the “Vale of Avalon”.
In recent years the site has been organised around a restricted backstage compound, with the Pyramid stage on the north, and Other stage on the south of the compound. Attractions on the east of the site include the acoustic tent, comedy tent and circus.
Most people who stay at Glastonbury Festival camp in a tent. There are different camping areas, each with its own atmosphere. Campsite accommodation is provided in the cost of a standard entry ticket but festival-goers must bring their own tents.
