Meet the people and suppliers powering Glastonbury Festival 2022

As the gates at Worthy Farm finally reopen, TPi joins the throng of delighted festivalgoers in attendance to catch up with some of the hardworking crew behind the scenes of the world’s largest greenfield music site.

With 200,000-plus ticket holders waiting patiently for three years since the last time Worthy Farm hosted its legendary festival, it’s fair to say that Glastonbury 2022 was the most hotly anticipated event of the year. Although we’ve seen several large events return since the easing of regulations globally, a mass gathering of this scale was a sight to behold, and something that was commented on by almost every artist who took to the stages on each of the 31 performance areas. As with every festival in Glastonbury’s 50-year history, in the months leading up to the famed event, there was a dedicated team of specialists who transformed this working farm into an epicentre of art and culture. So, with a bag full of clothing for every weather eventuality, TPi left the Hospitality Campsite and commenced a traditional tour of the site to catch up with some of those who made this year’s event a possibility.
