Glasto 2015 'The Free One'

Best Free Festival Ever!!

I'm back from Glastonbury 2015, which will forever be remembered for being my Free-Glastonbury' - for I won two tickets courtesy of the EE 'Glastonburied' competition where you had to predict where they had 'buried' the two tickets on the site - in a Battleships style game layout of Glasto. Day One I gave it a go and just selected three in a column to cover where I thought the Park stage was… Hey Presto! On Tuesday morning a message to say I'd won the tickets. It took several reads and then several 'congratulations' tweets came in before I believed my eyes. Re-sult!

Anyway, I'll put a little write up here on how the festival went. In the meantime here is an almost complete list of the bands I saw over the three music days:
