GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL SECURITY STEPS UP EVEN MORE! Celebrity Big brother???

Glastonbury Festival, love it or hate it, you can’t ignore it. After not missing one for 20 years I finally decided to kick the habit in 2005. The presence of the corporate sponsors like Orange, fascist security, Fort Knox security fencing, watchtowers, CCTV, the involvement of the Mean Fiddler, the BBC all over the place and much more, have all contributed to making the festival a plastic imitation of its anarchic former self.
It has to be said though, despite all the mass-produced novelty foam hats and millets camping stalls, if you know where to look that special festival spirit can still be found hiding in a bender somewhere. I am undecided as to whether or not I will be going back this year, probably not, but for those of you that have decided you are going you can expect unprecedented ticket security. Tickets will have passport photos on to prevent touting and you have to register during February to simply be eligible to buy a ticket in the first place! For more details, go to the Glastonbury website.
