Glastonbury goings on 2013

More than music

MOST POPULAR

Nowhere else would you stumble upon a Jagger flashmob, an immersive Arctic experience (that has nothing to do with festival headliners the Arctic Monkeys) and a tent hosting an auction of Ronnie Wood's shoes.
Sure, the line up of musicians performing at this year’s Glastonbury festival is brilliant – think The Rolling Stones, Jake Bugg, Primal Scream, The Smashing Pumkins and The XX - but as ever, there’s more to experience than great music…
Hunter’s #BEAHEADLINER Campaign
From 7am on Wednesday, around 5000 festival goers stopped off at The Olive Mill Restaurant, Somerset on route to the festival and exchanged their old wellies for a brand new pair of exclusive bright orange Hunter ‘Headliner’ boots.

Small Steps
Some shoes are made for walking – others, for looking at. The Small Steps Project is offering you the chance to get your hands on the shoes the festival headliners perform in. The charitable initiative is auctioning off pairs worn by Mick Jagger, Ronnie Wood, Rita Ora, Professor Green, Iggy Azalea and Jake Bugg. Plus, just in case the rumours are true, they’ve bagged some worn by Madonna.

Oxfam fashion
If you’re at Glastonbury right now it’s likely all your clothes are soaking wet and you need to visit the Oxfam tent. Not only are all the items of clothing dry, you’ll find everything from one-off vintage pieces to fancy dress. The shop will be popping up at all the key festivals over the summer.
Arctic Dome
As part of their campaign to save the Arctic, the Greenpeace field is hosting an authentic Svalbard village Farmer’s Market and has created an interactive Arctic experience - complete with snow – at this year’s festival. They’re also offering visitors the chance to meet Arctic explorers and get their faces painted like polar bears. We’ll see you there.
Jagger-off flashmob
Hundreds of revelers joined the Jumping Jack Flashmob arranged by two Rolling Stones fans at Glastonbury yesterday. Round two is scheduled to take place at the silent disco in the early hours of Saturday morning. Show up and bust a ‘finger waggle’ or try ‘squeezing through a narrow doorway.’
