Last month I went to my second and certainly not my last Glastonbury Festival.

Glastonbury Festival

What a place! My hat is totally and utterly off to all the people who organise it! People keep asking me what my highlight from the festival was and honestly – I can’t pick one. Without wanting to sound like a plonker, the whole 5 days is one big highlight from beginning to end! To list a very minimal few – The Michael Clarke dance company opening the Pyramid stage on Friday morning to a David Bowie soundtrack; stumbling upon vintage swing band Elle and The Pocket Belles; singing happy 80th birthday to the Dalai Lama; weeping to the beautiful noise that Lianne La Havas makes and finally seeing Jungle’s live show.

So I thought I would make you a Glastonbury-inspired playlist with some of my festival highlights as well as a few other sunny songs and things I’m listening to at the moment thrown in for good measure! You can listen to it HERE on Spotify and track listings are at the bottom of this post.

One thing I’m never very good at is taking many photos at festivals. I go with all good intentions of coming away with a beautifully documented collage of every experience where the reality is that I’m lucky if I get half a dozen passable shots. Glastonbury this year was absolutely no exception (and I even bought a new camera this year…) so here is a (very) brief snap shot. Must try harder next year!
