It was another amazing year at Glastonbury Festival thanks to outstanding performances from Lionel Richie, Kanye West and Florence + The Machines. However, for most people at home, they couldn’t think of anything worse than standing in the muddy fields of dreams and squatting over Glastonbury’s famous long-drop toilets.
In 2014 the festival invested £600,000 into a brand new toilet system that saw 5,000 portable toilets replaced with long-drops and compost toilets. The idea of leaving less of a trace and was said by Michael Eavis to be a “fantastic achievement”.
This year we felt it was our duty to show the readers at home what the toilets are actually like and see if the tales surrounding Glastonbury’s toilets are true. Therefore we went into a different one every day to see the damage. See how we got on below.
Glastonbury Festival Long Drop Toilets – Day 1:
Not much to report on except a muddy seat and an empty can of Strongbow being the centrepiece of this long-drop.
