The Glastonbury comedown is hard. Even after 10 Glasto’s I still find the week after a nightmare. Yes, I love having that first shower, sleeping in my own bed and having a flushing toilet. However, nothing compares to the highs we experienced down at Worthy Farm. What goes up must come down they say. Here are 5 ways to help you get over the Glastonbury blues:
Plan for the next Glastonbury
One of the best ways to get over the Glasto blues is to start planning for the next Glastonbury. You may not be guaranteed a ticket but planning now helps you keep the buzz going. Why not use this time to organise your Glastonbury ticket pod and ask all your friends and family to help you on Glastonbury Ticket Day?
Book some gigs
I always have a few gigs lined up just after Glastonbury to have something to look forward to. We are off to see Bruce Springsteen this week and I plan to book to see some of the artists I missed at this year’s Glastonbury. You could even see some of the artists you saw down at Worthy Farm again to remind you of the festival.
Attend The Glastonbury Abbey Extravaganza
Glastonbury organises more than one festival a year. As well as the main festival, they organise the Pilton Party and The Glastonbury Abbey Extravaganza. Why not attend the latter and get back down to Somerset to relive those Glasto moments? The extravaganza is set in the stunning grounds of Glastonbury Abbey. It is a perfect location for a one-day festival.
Go on holiday
Having something to look forward to after Glastonbury is a must. So having a holiday booked really helps. You may not get the highs of discovering a secret set or major headliner but you will still be away from your usual routine. Even if it’s just for a long weekend somewhere.
Relive the last Glastonbury
Finally, you can relive the last Glastonbury by listening to playlists online. Or, alternatively, you can watch the performances on BBC I player and Youtube. Check out fellow Glasto goers’ videos too. They really send you back to Worthy Farm.
