The Greenpeace Field


Greenpeace field sketch

The Greenpeace CLiMAX Dome ‘where seeing is believing.’
Step inside to see our world in a different way. Marvel at the world premiere of David Attenborough’s 3D collection. Walk through the D-fuse Extreme Energy immersive installation and enjoy Addictive TV’s Orchestra of Samples (full details see below). Around the Dome our Greenpeace campaigners will be joined by others to bring you up to date with our campaigns and to give you the facts about fracking, flooding and what’s behind the climate chaos that threatens us all.

Check out the Greenpeace cafe serving up some of the tastiest snacks onsite. From early breakfasts – while you’re waiting for your shower – through ‘til late night we’ll be here to serve you with the best coffee and cakes and vegetarian meals that will have you coming back for more.

Come to where the action is. You can’t miss the Greenpeace ship on the front of the field. Our ‘Arctic Sunrise’ is still being held hostage in Russia after it was illegally seized by the Russian military. Here you can climb aboard but you’ll have to ascend the hard way and tackle the15ft bouldering wall. Our team will be on hand to tell you about the ship that has been vandalised following the Arctic 30 action last year. Find out ways in which you can help us to repair her ready for the next Arctic action.  Climb onto the bow to experience the real story of the Arctic 30 activists in an immersive audio installation.

The Greenpeace stage is back - on the back of the Greenpeace ship. Daily performances (see below) plus Quincy Bones open mic sessions. Rock up and book yourself a slot and get a chance to play at Glastonbury!

Our world famous skate ramp, the biggest mobile ramp in the country returns to Glastonbury made entirely from forest-friendly FSC-approved wood. Here you can learn to skate, book into the kids workshops every morning or watch the pro skaters go airside and learn a trick or two.

Did you know that we’ve been keeping you clean in our awesome carbon neutral, hot showers for almost 20 years? If you haven’t discovered them yet then you’re missing a real treat. Powered by sustainable wood pellet boilers and themed by snow business. This year they are transformed into chilly ice caves. But fear not we’ll have gallons of hot water and you can even take a dip in our hot springs.  Don’t forget your towels and we’ll even provide the soap.

If you only do one new thing at the festival this year then you really should come and see Aurora our giant polar bear. She’s bigger than a double decker bus with a roar to match. She’s our messenger from the Arctic reminding you that it’s an area under threat like never before. Her home is fast disappearing as the ice melts and she needs your help. Come and hear her stories. We’ll be running children’s workshops where everyone is welcome.

The Farmers Market was established by us in 2011 and has been voted a smash hit by festival goers. Carefully selected, quality produce brought to you by local people. Healthy eating where you can pick and mix your food and sit down to enjoy a picnic of your choice. Choose from: Lynda’s Loaf,Hendra’s Health Store- Nuts & Stuff, Nurses Cottage Drinks, The Barley Sugar Bakehouse, Ethical Chef, Zara’s Chocolates, Green’s of Glastonbury, Parsnipship, Fruit Corner and the Kofta Bar.

Look out for daily surprises on our field brought to you by Sideways Arts bringing you amazing walkabout theatre and you’ll find plenty of seating and shade if you just want to chill.
