To exclude, to expel:
The 2022 Glastonbury Festival is coming to an end – with 200,000 in attendance, it’s no surprise that the toilets are a bit…disgusting.
One thing any festival-goer must prepare himself for are disgusting public restrooms.
With a population of around 200,000, it’s almost inevitable that you’ll encounter some unsightly encounters in five days.
By Thursday night, people were gagging and vomiting as they passed one of the 30 toilet blocks.
One Glastonbury festival attendee, who shared an unsightly photo with the Mirror, told us: “It’s disgusting, people know we have to use the toilets for the next few days and they’ve been very chaotic!”
There are three versions of the holes on the site – green metal stall blocks with walls, a door, and not much else but a pit jutting into the ground. The white chairs, which are hardly the most attractive thing to sit on, mean that most have a hover option.
There’s no dispensers, tissues or hand sanitizer – but a few have separate outdoor handwashing stations nearby – meaning bringing your own resources is key!
Some areas also provide urinals, nothing more than a gate with blue plastic panels for privacy.
The last option is the rows of toilets with steps to go up to the small chamber. These are popular spots as they offer a little more comfort so the queues can be long so you need to know in advance if you need to go!

During performances, some festival-goers use paper cups to lighten the load, something you’ll get used to seeing during the event.
However, if you think you’ll hit a star in the row for number one, you’ll be disappointed. Hotel areas offer much more luxurious toilets for the stars, complete with a working flush system, hand sanitizer dispensers, and loo rolls.
Cleaning staff are present regularly to inspect the facilities, which are also equipped with red and green changing lights to indicate if they are free to use. How is the other half?
