My parents were driving through Glastonbury several years ago on the run up to the festival. They had a bad time of it: people banging on the windows demanding to be taken to the festival site. They both found it extremely intimidating. I would not like to be living anywhere near the place around festival time!

That was either quite a few years ago, or a very unusual experience. Glastonbury town is empty during the festival these days. The absence of fence jumpers means that the vast majority of punters now turn up on the Wednesday/Thursday in their nice cars, lock themselves inside the wall, and don't leave until the Monday.
