Glastonbury: A peek inside the unseen parts of the festival

If there’s one thing any Glastonbury rookie should know, it’s that the party never ends.

The BBC may show epic performances from stages across the festival grounds, but there are plenty of great parties, raves and immersive experiences that viewers don’t get to see.

At the end of Sir Paul McCartney’s performance on Saturday night, he joked to the crowd to go back to their tents and sleep – but that’s the exact opposite of what many have done.

Many rush to Glastonbury’s so-called ‘Naughty Corner’, where DJs spin decks and bar staff keep drinks flowing. However, if you don’t get there fast enough, you may not get in.

The security team around the site is responsible for transporting people through the one-way system to the desired area after business hours. However, the staff are always friendly and to get through the turnstile you have to appreciate one of the group sitting on the railings.

Staging and production for the area is more intimate, if not more dramatic than the main stages – with trippy imagery emanating from a screen surrounded by a face with a visor at the IIcon stage at Block9.

This year, stage glamor has partnered with Notting Hill Carnival and is becoming a “monument to the digital, post-truth era”.

However, the stench of the toilets certainly got worse as the evening progressed – with lots of people pouring out into the streets to spend a dime. Some failed to find the green iron stalls and relied on the gates around the area.

The surroundings are dotted with a number of nightclubs with NYC Downlow’s Meat Rack being one of the most popular.

The club, which can have up to a four-hour wait to get inside, is very secretive about what goes on inside because the camera on the phone has to be covered.

Drag Queens and nude butchers entice partygoers with performances and snacks at the front of the club – what looks like a dilapidated butcher shop from the outside.

Those with mustaches are free to enter, which also prohibits drinking. If you don’t have one, don’t worry because you can buy a piece with a donation of £2. The proceeds come from three causes; Faith in Dignity, Unicef’s Yemen Campaign and Traveller’s Pride.

NYC Downlow’s eye-catching displays draw crowds, with people having to wait up to four hours to get inside even though there’s an outdoor bar and DJ just opposite.







Rumshack is a late-night haunt for carnival lovers

The attractive exterior themes of the clubs range from Block9 to The Common, giving the feeling of being in an amusement park, sure to take you somewhere else. One of the other clubs is Rumshack, which has a large pirate-themed building with tall archways for dancers to enter and enjoy the music.

Trippy tunes boom from the club to lure you in but the grandeur of the outside can fool you as you land straight into an extremely intimate dance floor with low marquee ceilings packed with hands racing colleagues.

Dancers can be seen pouring in from the domes eagerly trying to get a part of the action.

Other clubs on offer also include Totem that partygoers have to line up to get into the giant Aztec-inspired venue and dance the night away (well, mornings).

If you’re looking for a more relaxed post-Paul McCartney experience, some areas have large bonfires dotted around with people gathering close by to warm up from the Glastonbury cold.

Or, if you prefer to dance the night away in a more staged style, Glastonbury Latino’s tent offers live Zumba-style classes with dancers dressed in sequins as they guide partygoers. party of moves.

Glastonbury after the dark is truly an experience in its own right!
