Glastonbury revellers hail this year’s bash

Fans tell NME.COM 'have the the time of their life' despite weather

Glastonbury Festival-goers have hailed this year’s three-day bash a huge success despite poor weather conditions and sound problems.

Fan comments have been flooding NME.COM with their comments since they got back from Worthy Farm following the weekend’s shenanigans.

Sam Heyes from Newton-le-Willows admitted that this year’s line-up was “great” but he was disappointed with the weather.


He added: “This year’s festival proved to me that the spirit of Glastonbury is what the event is all about. But the four days of relentless rain got to me in the end. By the Sunday I was ready to go home.”

Pedro Aljama Monzon, who travelled over from Madrid for the festival, agreed.

“It was a good experience due to the amazing concerts and atmosphere,” he said. “However, the mud and rain were a bad combination and it was tiring when we had to move between the stages under these extreme conditions.”

Others argued that the weather brought people together and got them into the spirit of the festival.

“Sod the mud and the rain. It can dampen the body but it certainly couldn’t dampen the spirit,” said Gary Massie, from Kettering.

“The three headliners on the Pyramid Stage were amazing. Arctic Monkeys now have the tunes to rival anybody and any festival, The Killers have the show to grace any Las Vegas setting and The Who have a back catalogue to make any band on the planet envious.”


Neil Hughes, from Bilston also said he had the “time of his life” at this year’s festival.

He added: “It was great to see everyone concentrating on having a good time and helping others rather than complaining and whinging. The biggest dilemma I faced was choosing between Kasabian and Arcade Fire but I’m delighted to say I made the right choice with the latter.”
