MUSIC & SPORT The Glastonbury Festival Glastonbury people WARM-UP Improvvisate un breve dialogo in cui vi domandate a vicenda che musica vi piace, qual è il vostro cantante/gruppo preferito e dove vi piace ascoltare la musica. PAIR WORK 8 A three-day event The Glastonbury Festival is an important outdoor festival in England that dates back to 1970. It takes place on the last weekend in June on a farm in Somerset, which is not actually in the town of Glastonbury, but in Pilton, a village nearby . It lasts three days and it isn t only a music festival: it s about dance, theatre, circus and many other performances. Many volunteer teenagers are in the organisation of the festival: it s a great way to meet new friends and be part of a big event. A lot of famous pop and rock stars perform on big stages . Some artists who performed here are: Oasis, Coldplay, Jay-Z, Adele and also rappers like Killers and Dave. It s so popular that the tickets that people usually buy online always sell out in a few hours. Every year there are thousands of families and teenagers at the Festival and there are special activities and areas for children, such as Kidzfield, a big playground. People usually sleep in tents so that they can enjoy the festival all day long . Sometimes the weather isn t good and it rains a lot, so people always wear colourful waterproof jackets and rubber boots. Fashion is not so important when you are at Glastonbury! Charity Some of the profits of the Festival are donated to charitable organisations such as Greenpeace, WaterAid an association that works to give clean water to everyone, and Oxfam a movement that works to stop poverty. In return, some of them help in the organisation of the event.
