Glastonbury Festival 2014



Glastonbury Festival has a variety of toilet types and all are cleaned at least once a day.

Please don’t pee anywhere except in the loos. Urine can kill fish in the streams and pollute our beautiful farm.

All Festival loo points have either hand washing or hand sanitiser facilities – make sure you use them.  You are more likely to catch a bug from not washing your hands than from any other source.

These are the types of Toilet you will find at Glastonbury Festival

• LONG DROPS - a Festival tradition. Lockable and open air, we have built even more this year and now have over 1,500 across the site!

• COMPOST LOOS - new this year we have over 300 compost toilets across the site in busy areas and in some campsites. Please note that only toilet roll should be put down the loo and sawdust needs to be sprinkled after a ‘number 2’. The sawdust can be found outside the loos and you scoop a cup of it before you go to the loo.

- we have almost 3,000 across the site! These become blocked quickly if they aren’t flushed; make sure you flush before and after each use. Please don’t flush anything non-biodegradable down any toilet. This means no rubbish, disposable nappies and most wet wipes.

• DISABLED TOILETS - there are wheelchair accessible toilets on viewing platforms at all the main stages and throughout the site. These are locked to avoid them being misused. If you are registered disabled and require access to these toilets please contact prior to the start of the festival to apply for this access.

• URINALS and SHEPEES - there are over 700 metres of male urinals dotted across the site. The lovingly decorated female urinals known as “Shepees” are cared for by WaterAid volunteers who are also on hand to assist newcomers!

• WATERAID LATRINES - you can find these in the Sacred Space. They too are lockable and open air. The latrines are examples of options available in the Third World & wonderfully looked after by WaterAid volunteers.

• FLUSHING TOILETS - for those who miss the comforts of home! There are a small number of flushing toilets available which be found at the top of Big Ground.

Please Leave Facilities In The Condition You Wish To Find Them. Respect Each Other And The Farm.
