Quote by Noel Gallagher
"Glastonbury is more important than Christmas.
Glastonbury is more important than New Year.
Glastonbury can be brutal.
Glastonbury can be magical.
The weather? Who gives a shit about the weather?
No one I know.
The music? Who gives a shit about the music?
No one I know.
Who's headling? Who cares?
No one I know.
It's not about hippies or liberals or peace or love or politics.
Although all of the above do hijack it fropm time to time.
Glastonbury is whatever you want it to be.
Glastonbury will change your life .....
and if it doesn't then I suggest
you get a fucking life!"
Quote from the book '50 Glastonbury' by Michael & Emily Eavis
