Welcome to Glastonbury Green Fields. In the 60-acre network of small fields you’ll discover a vision of possibilities for the future, personal and planetary, powered by the sun, the wind, and pure imagination!
The Green Fields, which occupy the highest ground and overlook the rest of the festival, are a joyous part of the Glastonbury Festival weekend. Here, in 2013, you will be invited to participate in new and old ways of living, from technological innovations to tribal dances from spiritual awakenings to eco-build solutions – and all in a truly tranquil environment, free from the fumes and noise of generators, running on the quiet power of green energy.
If you are interested in ways of fulfilling yourself without exploiting others, take a walk in the Green Fields. Peace, compassion and understanding are big words, but in the Green Fields you’ll meet people with practical ways of finding them and making them real; ideas for personal and political change; suggestions for ways of living that aren’t based on competition and consumption; principles that inspired the first gathering at Worthy Farm and drove it to become the great event it is today.
We’ll be hanging out in the Green Futures Field of the Glasto Green Fields. New for the Green Futures Field in 2013 is the brand new venue, Toad Hall. Locked somewhere between fantasy and reality lies the magical residue of lost possibilities. Toad Hall has returned to remind us of the natural world and the characters that inhabit it. Toad (Theatre Of Ambient Dynamics) Hall is a multi-dimensional art space celebrating all that is natural, wonderful and fun.
To tell the story we are enlisting some to quality performers who will provide five days of uninterrupted delight in this prestige venue. The Portraits, Tankus The Henge, Telling The Bees and Rodney Branigan will be performing, as well as our All-Star Guitar Masterclass with Grammy Award winning acoustic player Ed Gerhard and many more to be announced.
The Green Futures field really is the heart of the Glastonbury Green Fields, inviting you to a sneaky preview into the future. The theme for this year celebrates the UN International Year of Water Cooperation. The Green Futures field feels it is crucial to highlight the earth’s most critical resource. Especially at a time of unpredictable weather systems, growing populations and greedy countries. Those in the know, know that the field is packed full of venues, spaces and healthy food, all powered by natural and renewable energy since 1994! We’ll see you there over the five days for some alternative surprises, quality international acts, and stunning arts. See you there!
