One of the rules on our campsite was 'no drum playing' - as if I would!! while walking through the town a couple of guys were strolling round the streets beating their drums for the pure joy of it .... excellent!!
Light a campfire when you've returned from all the music at night.
You won't be able to find much wood laying about but you can buy sacks of eco-friendly material that'll be good to keep a fire burning for a night or two for about a fiver. Just don't leave it out in the rain.

You'll be at Glastonbury for a few days so going to the toilet here is not necessarily pleasant but definitely necessary.
Generally, there's latrine type cubicles set up which are dotted around the place and are emptied regularly (although the heat makes the smell quite intense so don't camp just by them... that said, you'll probably be drinking a bit so don't camp too far either... or use a bottle).
There's also stand up urinals and she-pee urinals for the women.
Drinking water and washing basins are also found by the toilets.

Put aside any concerns about looking like an idiot. I was saved from insanity in 2004 by my waterproof trousers, jacket and welllies. Visit an army surplas shop before you go if the weather forecast is looking in any way dodgy!
Full Moons in Glasters
Every full moon, there are various happenings in Glastonbury.
There are a couple of open meditations held around the "Glastonbury Experience" in the town, as well as spontaneous get togethers on the top of the Tor.
If you are lucky enough to get the chance to get to one of the full moon open evenings at Chalice Well - dont miss it as they can be magical.
Sound of Music
The ruins of the abbey are worth visiting and once a year the abbey is closed and a concert of classical music and fireworks occurs however, it is difficult to obtain tickets and you have to bring you own seats and food.
History - Overview
Glastonbury has long history, of which King Arthur would be only about in the middle, however long ago his days might be.
