Glastonbury encourages gig goers to take coach to festival

Michael Eavis says get on the bus

Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis wants festival goers to take coaches rather than cars to this year’s event.

Combined festival and coach tickets go directly to Worthy Farm from 17 major UK cities.

Eavis said taking the coach to the event is more environmentally friendly.

He said: “One coach is much less polluting than 50 people in cars. This reduces traffic and fuel consumption. It?s also cheaper to come by coach than with just a couple of people in a car.”

Combined festival and coach tickets cover journeys from Birmingham, Bristol, Bournemouth, Cambridge, Cardiff, Cheltenham, Coventry, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newscastle, Nottingham, Oxford, Sheffield and Southampton.

Last year approximately a third of Glastonbury goers travelled to the event on public transport.

Tickets are still available for the three-day event taking place between June 27 to 29.

To get tickets you have to register first.
