As always, Glastonbury Festival presents a brilliant selection of bars across the site. With more venues than ever, you’ll never be far from your favourite tipple. Whether it’s real ale, a pint of local cider or a fabulous cocktail, you won’t be disappointed.

Firm favourites such as the Meeting Place, West Holts Bar, the Cockmill, Avalon Inn, the Park Bar and the Cornish Arms will be making a welcome return and are all stocked to the brim, ready for your arrival.

On Thursday night in the Glade Bar we’re getting freaky with a Day of the Dead tequila party – paint your face, try a frozen margarita and dance til the early hours! If whisky is your thing, there will also be a dedicated Tennessee Whiskey Bar within the Meeting Place serving cocktails, straight on the rocks or by the jug.

So to help you on your travels, why not visit one of the many bars at the end of your journey or at the meeting place to catch up with friends. The variety of bars is endless, find your favourite!
