The Glastonbury Festival has a long and illustrious history stemming back to the first ever festival which began the day after Jimi Hendrix died, in 1970. This year the Festival is running from the 22nd to the 26th of June.
Attendance has gone from a modest 500 people in 1978 to a whopping 175 000 last year. Rain or shine, that translates into a lot of very thirsty revellers, organisers, staff, and performers – so, pretty much everyone will have a thirst on them.
The good news on the thirst front is that AquAid South Coast has the festival covered. As Glastonbury get into the swing of things setting up, so does AquAid – starting off with the delivery of 120 Bottle Fed coolers accompanied by 600 bottles plus another 20 Mains Fed (POU).
Darren Brooks, of AquAid South Coast, who has experience with filling the Glastonbury Festival order, is managing the day to day orders and deliveries, but AquAid SC has had to take on extra staff to cover the work load.
The bulk of the deliveries have now started to go in and ramping up the orders for the Festival starting 22nd June.
“This will be the fifth year now supplying to the Festival itself, although we supply the farm and organisation all year round,” explained Kevin James, Sales Manager at AquAid South Coast.
So, if you’re heading off to the festival, here’s wishing you an incredible time, and remember to keep your special self hydrated as you party on for the duration. We’re hoping that the only wet you encounter is your drinking water and that the rest of the festival stays sunny and dry. (We’re also hoping for dry weather, so that when we collect our machines post festival, it won’t be in metres of mud – fun!)
