Bars at Glastonbury 2024

As always, Glastonbury Festival presents a myriad of bars across the site so you’ll never be far away from your favourite tipple. Whether it’s craft IPA, real ale, a cooling glass of rose, a pint of local  fruit cider, premium spirits, hard seltzers, an Italian aperitif or a coffee based cocktail to pick you up, keep your eyes peeled for the bar that has the right vibe for you. You will find the prices equivalent to London pub prices

If non alcoholic drinks are your thing, there are zero alcohol beers, lagers & spirits which give a satisfying grown up drink that doesn’t compromise on taste & steps away from the sweet sugary non alcohol drinks of old

Alongside all the fun & frolics that the bars have to offer do remember to keep hydrated with water – you are never too far from free mains supplied drinking water at the Festival but cans of water are also available to buy at the bars

Take a stroll around the markets to find your familiar haunts or see if you can find a new watering hole. Have you discovered the Avalon Inn? One of  the wonders of the Glastonbury world. It’s an old fashioned timber framed pub on two floors bustling with great drinks, fast service, live music & Avalon-oke. Plenty of space inside & out to sit & watch the world go by.

Having a wander to the Theatre & Circus fields? Then roll up, roll up to the multi-coloured delights of the new Glebe Bar. Grab a drink & relax in the dedicated beer garden – fingers crossed that sun umbrellas are required! Explore Theatre & Circus further & look for the tiny, high spectacle cocktail bar that delivers the mightiest punch – The Cockatoo. A vintage, cherry-red vehicle hosting opera, contortion, ballet & fire in a revolving bird cage & serving hand mixed cocktails by shimmering mixologists.

Have you walked all the way to the Glastonbury sign? Then why not drop in to the highest bar in the Festival – Tricketts – a rustic shack at the top of The Park. Amazing views across the whole site & a fast, friendly service for all of your favourite drinks.

If you’re heading to the BBC Introducing stage then look out for Bar on the Green’s new location right next door. This well loved bar offers plenty of indoor seating, cocktails, premium beers – including non alcoholic & disco tunes well into the night.

Silver Hayes had a re-jig last year & if you didn’t get there, then do make time this year & enjoy the bars while you’re there. The largest bar is The Junction nestled close to The Levels with lots of space & shade to enjoy the sounds of the field. The Wow is wow by name, wow by nature with a great selection of wine & spirits to tickle your fancy. The Lonely Hearts is a great bar, unsurprisingly next to the Lonely Hearts stage – you won’t miss any music while you sip

The Brewery is new for 2024 – just along the boulevard from the Pyramid Stage that we hope will soon become a firm Festival must-visit. Take a seat & enjoy your favourite drink & music with your favourite people

Do you enjoy the chilled vibe of the Acoustic field & you’re a beer aficionado? Then the rustic, traditional Cockmill with cosy snugs offering the finest choice of craft, real & local Somerset ales is for you . It also offers amazing panoramic views from the pagoda beer garden

West Holts is always a great meeting place on the Wednesday & Thursday but remember to come back during the rest of the weekend to the West Holts Bar. You can’t miss it as it features an Aztec-style frontage with foxes standing guard. It’s a great place to sit back, chill & enjoy the live music on the West Holts stage or in between artists it features its own entertainment & the Festival-Famous ‘Big Fat Festival Quiz’

Looking for a bar with live music throughout the day & DJ’s after midnight? Then the Open Arms opposite the Greenpeace field is for you. The bar is fully stocked & has plenty of space for both dancing or sitting & relaxing with a draught beer or a frozen cocktail or mocktail. Open slots are available for musicians – ask the manager

If your wanderings mean that you end up in the Woodsies area of the Festival then make sure that you visit the funky wonderland that is The Woods Bar. Irresistibly catchy tunes spun by the coolest DJs sit alongside a great selection of beers, ales, wines, spirits & non alcoholic drinks

Whether you start your journey around the Festival at one of the many bars with friends old or new, or finish your day by catching up with your mates – the variety of bars are endless – find your group’s new favourite!

Whilst we encourage you to explore all the areas of the Festival including the bars, if you do struggle with alcohol or are recently sober please seek help when you need it from our welfare or medical teams. You can also find information regarding drinking at Glastonbury here.
