I didnt go to Glastonbury this year, which is the same as last year, and every year of my life before that.
I am kind of attracted to it, and also kind of repulsed, and in any case its pretty expensive whic his enough to put me off.
But I was really interested in Maddy Harland’s take on the festival, she is the editor of Permaculture Magazine, and a shrewd observer of life – as she would have to be as a permaculturist.
Her visit to Glasto is well outlined here, and is well worth a read for anyone who like me has mixed feelings about it all.
Personally I am very much looking forward to WOMAD, which is looking better and better… World Routes on BBC Radio 3 has been playing some tracks from artists who will be appearing there this year, and my appetite is well and truly whetted.
