Coldplay, U2, Beyonce, The Wombles…..and Organic Energy. That’s just a select few who will be found at Worthy Farm this week as Glastonbury 2011 gets under way.
Organiser Michael Eavis has promised festival-goers at this year’s event will be the best ever, with an impressive line up of stars helping Glastonbury sell out in less than three hours. Other acts on the bill include Elbow, Tinie Tempah, Morrissey and DJ Shadow, all playing to more than 137,000 music fans from Friday.
But there is one thing which you can never predict at Glastonbury – the weather. If recent years are anything to go by, the queues for the showers, with hot water provided by our ÖkoFEN wood pellet boilers, will be long.
Last year, more than 7,000 revellers took advantage of a low carbon rinse in the rainforest-themed showers. And that was when the weather was hot and dusty. In 2009, we were just as busy with the torrential downpours turning the site into a quagmire.
And this week, we’re looking at the skies and wondering how many of the revellers will be making their way to the Greenpeace site for a hot shower.
So here’s the weather forecast, with thanks to the Met Office: Damp and changeable conditions, some rain and rather windy.
Organic Energy will be on the Green Fields at Worthy Farm, we’re not sure if we’ll be welcoming Uncle Bulgaria or Bono – but you never know.
