How to create a summer festival in your garden
Summer festivals have been another victim of the year’s mass cancellations to halt the spread of coronavirus. As such, we’ve grieved the loss of what would have been the 50th anniversary of Glastonbury and waved goodbye to dreams of frolicking at Wilderness this summer. But with lockdown gradually lifting and the government-approved size for our social bubbles growing, this could be the summer to conjure up your very own festival in your garden.
Many would-be Glastonbury-goers have taken to social media to share their plans for creating their own ‘Glasthomebury’ on the weekend of 27/28 June, when the festival would have been held. Whether you follow their lead or choose another weekend to hold your summer festival of dreams (sans live performers from big bands), here’s what you need to set up camp.
