In pictures: The people of Glastonbury Festival 2022

People of glasto four way
We've been out to meet people on site - whether they're first time revelers or lifelong attendees.

As well as being one of the oldest and biggest festivals in the world, Glastonbury also plays host to one of the most diverse crowds in the music scene.

From octogenarians to newborns, people from five minutes away and people from five thousand miles away, the appeal to the event is vast and celebrated by many.

We have been roaming the festival grounds to meet some of this year's revelers to find out what has drawn them to Pilton and what they're most looking forward to.

“It’s going to be a completely different Glastonbury experience with a baby, and we can’t wait to see it through our sons eyes. He wasn’t even conceived when we got the tickets!”

Colin, Birkinhead

“I’ve been every year since 2003. Expect for 2005, the year of the floods. So I didn’t mind that. I love it so much, I’ve even brought my elderly mother this year.”
