WITH Glastonbury Festival’s tickets sold out in less than an hour, music lovers might turn to Shindig instead, the BBC reported.

On Sunday (November 19) the BBC mentioned Shindig among the festivals that could be the perfect solution for those who did not manage to get a ticket for Worthy Farm.

The festival held in Ilminster, at the Dillington Estate, was also recommended by Emily Eavis last year, who said it is a great alternative, given its close proximity, for those who missed out on tickets.

Si Clarke, co-founder of Shindig, said: "Our tenth birthday is going to be special. As well as brand new headliners, we're bringing back some of the classic, much-loved acts from over the last 10 years.

“We'll have some of the UK's best art installations across the festival, loads to do for families, not to mention circus and cabaret shows.

“Our dress-up theme will be announced soon which is always eagerly anticipated. Music lovers, it's not a year to miss."

Next year’s festival will take place from May 23 to May 26 at the same site, 10 years since Shindig started.

Simon Clarke, festival director, previously said: “For our 10th anniversary we are going to try something new.

“We are going to bring back that intimate vibe we all loved so much – friends, and friends of friends.

“We are going to reimagine Shindig with our 10 years of knowledge and experience, to create something even more magical.”
