Glastonbury Festival News and Information Update

Glasto4The Festival build is now in full swing and therefor the festival site is essentially a construction site. Now that it is classed as a construction site the Festival site must now be closed to the public. We would ask that you do not walk onto the site or exercise your dogs on the site. This is for your own and your pets safety. We will post on the web site when we have been given the all clear to allow access again post festival.

Road Closures
Road closures for the festival period will be the same as in 2014 and full details will be in the information sheet given out at the ticket and passes sessions.

However in order to ease congestion in the village on the main arrival day (Wednesday 24th June) the A361 is highly likely to be closed at Beardly Batch (junction with A37) to traffic wishing to travel west bound (towards Pilton). This closure will only be instigated if traffic levels are high from around 6am until sometime around mid-day.

In 2014 we experienced a later arrival pattern than 2013 and as a result traffic built up very quickly on the Wednesday morning and it became difficult for residents to move about and cross the A361.

aerial-glasto_2603994bIf the A361 is closed then we will do our best to allow access to residents of Pilton but please bear with the Traffic Officers on Duty as they may not be able to allow access at certain times in order to keep traffic moving on the A361 through the village.

Access back to the A361 can also be gained by using the A37 (north) onto Ridge Lane and the B3136 (lamberts hill) back to the A361 for local access (on the Wednesday).

Tickets & Passes
Do not forget that you can pick up your tickets and vehicle passes from Pilton Village Hall on Saturday 13th June between 1pm & 6pm and again on Friday 19th June between 6pm & 8pm.

If you have any queries on these issues or any other issue please contact me via the Hot Line, 01749899631 or email
