I have been to GB five times so that speaks volumes. They bill themselves as the biggest tribute band festival and so long as you are prepared to suspend your disbelief (which isn't difficult) you could just as easily be watching Michael Jackson, Madness, AC/DC, Guns 'n' Roses, etc in the flesh because most of the tribute bands REALLY ARE that good. These acts are supplemented by a host of other original and cover bands and even comedy acts on the other stages. GB13 was helped a lot by the… Read Full Review

A festival consisting with only tribute acts sounds like a great idea, it didn't seem this way once we were inside the shoddily erected, poorly guarded fences. Our first mistake was assuming that this ever growing festival would accept card payments for tickets, they did not. We were then advised to go to the local village to use their cash point... but there was no cash point. The nearest cash point was in Keyworth which is about 5 miles away, but the festival staff advised us we could walk… Read Full Review

My friends and I are real festival veterans but this is the first year we decided to visit Glastonbudget. We had a great time and there are many plus points to the festival. Good bits: - Some great cover bands which replicated the real thing extremely closely. Stand outs for me were Mercury, Abba Revival, Whole Lotta DC, This is Nirvana and Green Date. Stand out moment was when This is Nirvana's bass player snapped a string and they had to play several songs with just "Kurt Cobain" and "Dave… Read Full Review

The bands, in general, were really good. Even some that I don't like particularly, like Coldplay, were well 'tributed', and sounded good live anyway. Loved 'One Step Behind', 'Green Date', and 'Four Fighters' particularly. The crowd were friendly, the mad costumes were good, and I never thought I'd see a mosh-pit start to develop at a Dire Straits tribute! When the sun came out on Sunday it was a great place to be. The food we tried was well-priced and tasty. The price for the… Read Full Review

Glastonbudget was a great weekend overall (shame about the weather ). Needs to run more professionally and will soon be a fantastic festival. The toilets were the best I've ever seen at a festival… Read Full Review

Sit in a field and watch some music. Good if the suns shining but even if it had been this is a shoddy festival on the whole. Better to sort the cover bands out and the facilitates, forget the new band thing, most of them were just that, forgettable
Lots of youths drunk too. If your 15 and want to run wild and drink then ideal
Was actually better 2 years ago, is a good idea but needs someone competent to run it… Read Full Review

We went to Glastonbudget hoping to have a laugh - the idea of going to a festival with music supplied with tribute bands is an excellent idea!
Admittedly the weather did not help but the lack of proper proffesional mangement really showed. The security, or lack of it was eveident with in the region of 30 - 40 tents being slashed and contents stolen put a dampner on things for some.
The signage seemed inadequate and not much for young kids to do except the bouncy castle!
No eating/seating areas… Read Full Review

Let the early arrivals into the car park so they dont block the road with their cars...And us new boys can have a beer with the old hands and get some tips while waiting for the their wristbands.
Could we have a map of the site on the web next time ?....so we can camp in a quieter (family?) corner and maybe get some sleep.......(us "olds" cant keep up with the late night revellers any more!) … Read Full Review
