All good things come to an end and Glastonbury 2017 is no different. Everyone has their favourites, but for the Motorhome Holiday Company, the standout acts were Biffy Clyro, Foo Fighters, Clean Bandit, Lorde and, of course, Ed Sheeran.
Now, as the dust settles on Worthy Farm and an army of workers begins a week of clearing the 900-acre site in Somerset, we have a couple of hours to spare as we wait in our Bristol branch for the first of our rental motorhomes to emerge by the airport on the A38. Alas, our army is substantially smaller than Glastonbury’s, but we’ll be thinking of them as we clean all the signs of revelry out of our fleet of campervans.
We’d love to tell you exactly who we rented our motorhomes to but, alas, we’re subject to NDAs. Needless to say, we’re rather hoping some of our favourites leave a few rock ‘n’ roll items behind for us. But there’s no time for dreaming as we have a quick turnaround before most of our hire vehicles are straight back on the road for holidays across the UK, Europe and, for one, back down to the southwest.
With Glastonbury fresh in all our minds, we’re more than happy to take rental bookings on all our motorhomes well in advance, but don’t forget that there’s no Glastonbury festival next year, as 2018 will be one of their six-yearly fallow years. It is a farm after all, and the land needs to recover after the five-day party even more than you do.
For those planning to attend the Glastonbury Festival 2019, please do remember that you need to register your interest for tickets on the official website well before they go on sale in October 2019, so don’t forget to set a reminder. While you’re at it, remember to email us at [email protected] to book your motorhome hire for the festival, too.
It’s too early to predict who’ll be headlining in 2019, though Emily Eavis let slip to us that two headline acts have already been booked for the 50th anniversary festival in 2020. Alas, that was as far as she’d go, so we don’t expect to know who they are before you do. Personally, we’d love to see the full Queen line-up with an interactive Freddie hologram. But failing that, we’d be up for Muse again. And the Rolling Stones have never let us down.
Mind you, neither Robbie William nor Madonna has ever headlined. Nor Kylie, Elton John or Adele. Or Led Zeppelin. We don’t know anything, but we’re just saying…
