Here’s not only to Glasto (one of my most favourite examples of the contemporary power of rural places) but to a greener Glasto this year. This article tells us:

Anyone who’s seen the aftermath of festivals will know that it can end up looking more like a rubbish tip than a celebration of music. 

About 23,500 tonnes of waste are produced each year at UK music festivals, according to Powerful Thinking – a group which looks at the festival industry. Roughly two thirds of that goes into landfill.

But Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis hopes measures the team there has taken will inspire fans to be greener at this year’s event.

“Sustainability and the need to live in harmony with the land, has always been vital to Glastonbury Festival,” Emily told the Press Association.

Single-use plastic bottles have been banned on site, anyone going to the festival has been asked to asked to leave non-essentials at home and non-compostable plates, cups, straws aren’t allowed either.
