Throwback Thursday – to Glastonbury!

Posted on Thursday, July 16, 2020

This was a hard one for everyone this year. Glastonbury is a legendary festival, the biggest in Europe, and 2020 would have been its fiftieth anniversary.

From the sea of tents, to the temperamental weather, gorgeous sunrises and extortionate but downright delectable food (depending on the vendor!) there is honestly something for absolutely everyone at Glastonbury.

Throw into the mix crew catering, working with your mates, the pyramid stage, sights you’d never expect to see and of course the incredible live acts, this is understandably the most popular festival our crew apply to work at every year. So, like you, this time around we listened to the radio and the watched the videos from previous years through our computer screens. But come next year we will be back.

I just wanted to send out a big thank you to you and your team for all the work you and the team put into helping make the traffic and transport operation work so well this year.

As it was a pleasure having DC site services as part of our team. I think the GFEL team of contractors is the envy of a lot of events in the way we all support each other and it was noted by some observers that stated the following :- 

"simply put, GFEL’s off-site traffic management plan was delivered and managed in a totally consistent and defensible manner that sought to promote good practice, collaboration and road safety to the benefit of all road users."

The DC are big part of that delivery and should take some of the credit for that delivery.
