....Glastonbury festival 2014....

....Hello my dear blog friends, well i know its been a week since our return, but Mr P and I have been catching up on sleep and an endless laundry pile, plus having to return the very next day to work was quite an ordeal, anyway, words fail me....

the festival was...brilliant..wonderful...painful...exhausting...muddy...wet...grim at times....and fantastic, my little legs hurt like mad from all the walking and my poor big toe is still bruised from being bashed about in wellington boots for four days....but we saw some amazing acts, i cant describe the experience to you......but here are a whole bunch of random photos that i took over the whole four days.......enjoy...x





 ...i love 'Elbow', and it was the best thing ever to see them live.....especially Guy....


 ....Newton Faulkner...


....After dark everyone heads for 'Shangria la and Shangria hell'....
 ....an enormous endless metropolis city...which hid night clubs inside these blown up buildings....
 
.....vehicles embedded in the tops of buildings....the whole thing was made from film set props....







 .....a huge enormous dance area outside with loud pumping music and this whole wall was flashing.....

 ....amazing Robert Plant....

 .....Metallica....





 ...this real robot was incredible, he was just wandering about singing to people, with the voice of Steve Coogan......so funny...






 ....one of the many interesting people to see.....people watching is great.....


 ....Yoko Ono.....not much singing going on here.......more shouting really!!!!


 ....one of the many many fields was the Green fields and hippy fields, i liked it here a lot, i could of stayed here the whole time.......with absolutely loads and loads of workshops....from bunting making to stone carving.......everything....



 ....it wouldn't of course be Glastonbury without all the mud.........mud mud mud .....oh my.....






 


....an exhausted hippy.....bless him....


....there are many more photos but i didn't want to bore you with much of the same, and off course many more bands that we saw.......Kasabian...Goldfrapp.....Hazel O'connor....Dr Feelgood....Dolly Parton....so so so much to see and do, that you just cant fit it all in.....we didn't even see it all.....
.....perhaps we will next year.....oh yes, definitely going again....it really is an eye opener with hundreds of acts and hundreds of bands playing, some we wanted to see were on at the same time as others so we had to choose all the time, but it didn't matter, about 130,000 people went to this event and that was 130,000 happy people, i didn't witness one fight, one row, or any bad feeling, every person there was there to have a good time and a good time it was indeed.........even with the mud and rain.....
 
 
See you soon friends....peace...x
