Monday Moodboard: Go Glastonbury!

2013-07-01 2

My source of inspiration for this week is none other than the most anticipated music and arts festival in the world.

It’s comforting to know that in some parts of the world, appreciation for music and the arts is highly accentuated that there are those who invest so much in providing venues for celebrating talent and creativity.

Take the Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts—-better known simply as The Glastonbury Festival—-as an example. This year’s Glastonbury took place very recently, from June 26 to 30.

The Glastonbury Festival is a five-day annual music and performing arts festival that takes place in Somerset, England. It started in 1970, and to this day, it remains as the most sought-after festival that people from around the world look forward to.

Well, yeah, people attend the Glastonbury of course to watch the biggest acts in the world play. The likes of David Bowie, The Cure, Radiohead, Paul Mc Cartney, The Killers, Coldplay, U2 and more, so many more, have performed onstage at the festival. But you don’t go Glastonbury just to see your favorite bands live or watch a concert. You go there to see everything else: the art installations, the acrobatic, circus, and carnival attractions, the celebrity sightings and even the adventurously dressed and regular folk.

Here are some more photos taken by fellow lomographers during their excessively enjoyable days at Glastonbury in recent years:

So while I haven’t attended the Glastonbury Festival yet, I hope that I can one day savor every minute of a five day festival in Somerset, rockin’ to my favorite bands and taking photographs of every visual spectacle there is. Meanwhile, I will continue to celebrate music and the arts in my daily life, and share them here at the Magazine!
