\\How does Glastonbury Calling work?

Glastonbury Calling is a metropolitan festival making use of the best venues across Glastonbury by filling their stages all day with exciting bands and singers. To get into all of these venues (age restriction may apply) you'll need a wristband which you can get by visiting our Wristband Exchange and swapping your ticket or e-ticket for a wristband.

When you collect your wristband you'll also get a free program which has detailed set times, a map to all venues, food and drink offers across the town, and band recommendations from local tastemakers.

We are expecting a really busy year in 2020 and venue capacities are regulated so if you are keen to see a particular band, make sure to get to the stage with plenty of time to spare to avoid disappointment.

\\What is your underage drinking policy?

Glastonbury Calling operates a zero tolerance policy on underage drinking. If anyone under the age of 18 is found drinking alcohol or attempting to purchase alcohol, or if anyone over the age of 18 is found to be purchasing alcohol for anyone underage, they will be ejected from the festival and have their wristband removed.

\\Is the event disability friendly?

We have tried to make the festival as inclusive as possible. Unfortunately, due to the age and layout of some of the venues used, it is impossible to make every venue totally accessible. 

If you have any concerns about whether a venue you want to visit can accommodate you, please don't hesitate to get in touch with either the venue itself, or one of our team via the CONTACT US form on the homepage, and we will try everything in our power to assist you.

Disabled toilets can be found in the following venues, The Red Brick Building/Bocabar and Tor Leisure, and public toilets can be found at The Abbey car park in the centre of town. Morrisons and Tesco also have disabled toilets which are available for their customers to use.
