In the south-eastern corner of Glastonbury lives a secret waiting to be uncovered, part dream, part vision, an ancient mystery pulling you into its orbit….. Here, the ground beneath ancient ruins vibrate. This is a place to praise, learn and party. A place where the elements unite, where the dimensions merge and all your musical, mystical and most craved-for desires can be realised. Prepare to be transported: gather your tribe, come with us and enter into… The Common!
At THE RUM SHACK we take Glastonbury’s legacy as one of the biggest experiments in utopia-creation seriously. This year we’re setting an example we hope the world outside will follow… 50% of the Rum Shack’s line up are women. Expect raucous bands, tear-the-house-down DJ’s and badass beat-makers. Keep your eyes on our Facebook for announcements of the ferociously talented females we are lucky to host alongside the likes of Mike Skinner, Lowkey and Barney Artist.
Brand new and unveiled in 2017 THE TEMPLE presides over the Common like a God hewn of stone. Ravers, raise your hands in the air and praise the deity of dance, let go, get ecstatic! Once again, prepare to bow before the biggest names. Besides the likes of Fabio & Groove Rider, Kings of The Rollers feat Inja and Monika Kruse – Bearded Kitten are back and they’ve bought with them the likes of Eats Everything, Hot Chip and Seth Troxler for a truly slaying Saturday night Temple takeover. In the calming daytime rays let the heavens above the Temple open and shower upon you knowledge and cerebral stimulation, with talks from some of the leading thinkers and revolutionaries we have pulled into this moment of enlightenment, especially for your nourishment, beloved Commoners.
A cactus needle into the vein of your partying spirit: a shot of Mexico’s most magical desert juice down your throat! Brand new for 2019, THE MEZCAL YARD has bottled the spirit of the desert and serves it up as many varieties and amongst the highest of vibes you could hope for!
Festival organisers have made something incredibly special for you. Amidst the well-loved rave-arenas of The Temple and the Rum Shack a new and sparkling jewel has emerged, a secret, sacred well, a portal to another world! Prepare to be submerged in sound and born again… providing the soundtrack for this re-birth are the likes of Channel One Soundsystem, Manudigital and Daniel Haaksman. More details coming soon!
