Festival NAME: Glasgowbury Festival
Festival Date: 23/07/11
With the music amazing, the views stunning and the weather often perfect, you could be forgiven for thinking that you’d died and gone to heaven - but for the fact this heaven only lasts one day. But one day is all the Glasgowbury Festival needs to take you on a roller coaster ride through the best that the UK and Irish music scenes have to offer. Formed with the best intentions of providing a platform for Northern Ireland’s unsigned acts to launch from, Glasgowbury has grown to almost cult status, growing bigger and better with every year that passes. The festival continues to offer that platform to new and emerging talent while each year securing an act at the top of their game to bring the show to an almighty close. And with the beauty of the Sperrin Mountains acting as a backdrop, dozens of bands playing their hearts out to thousands of people, and an adjacent campsite looking to continue the party long into the night; the Glasgowbury Festival is the closest thing to experiencing heaven on earth.
