Please allow enough time to catch your train. At busy times the minibus may do several runs. One way from the farm to the station is around half an hour but can take much longer at peak festival traffic times.


If you are driving here please reconsider and use public transport instead.  If you cannot do this then how about car sharing?  We have linked up with goCarShare so please look at: or go to the Official Glastonbury Recycling Crew Facebook.  All Recycling Crew use Purple Route to get here (see signs as you approach site) on the east side of the site, and park in Purple Car Park.  Then you enter site via Blue Gate (PGB)  (see map online) which is near Tom’s Field.  Make sure you have requested a car pass online.  

Electric cars: There are no on site charging points. You should go to the Bronze Gate (west side of site) where we will have recharging facilities for as long as the festival is open to the public.


Motorbikes (incl quad bikes) are not allowed on site. The free, secure compound is near Festival Bus Station (follow Yellow Route). There is a walk to access the site at Gate A.  The compound is open from 0800 Wed 26th June but it closes at midday on Mon 1st July (confirm this when you get here).  No vehicle pass is required.  Before Wed. the compound is available but not secure so bikes should be locked to the fence. 


If you cycle to the festival you have to park your bike in a compound at Bronze Gate (near Pedestrian Gate A) which opens at 0800 Wednesday 26th June and closes 1000 Mon 1st July.  Bikes are not allowed on site.

Check the Glastonbury website for more info.


If you are being given a lift and need dropping off / collecting, please go to the main entrance of the Bath & West Showground on the A371 near Shepton Mallet.  It is well signposted.  There are free 24hr Staff Only shuttle buses to and from the Festival Bus Station from 0900 Tues 25th - 1900 Mon 1st July.  If you are using a Mendip/Somerset Council accredited taxi then you can be dropped off at taxi drop off site at Bronze Gate but please note this is further away from Gate A than the Festival Bus Station.

Please see the site map on the Glastonbury website.  You can also look at the Glasto website for more information about getting here and maps.
