The great Glastonbury stink: Showers closed off as festival preserves water for thirsty revellers


Showers stopped working at Glastonbury yesterday, leaving festival goers to endure record heat without a refreshing respite.

As temperatures at the Somerset site rose to a record 31C revellers found themselves without showers when they were closed at two of the festival’s facilities.

It came as queues continued to form at the 850 drinking taps on-site after the organisers banned the sale of single-use plastic water bottles in a bid to cut the mountain of waste produced by the event.

One of the glamping sites at the festival, Love The Fields, said that showers had been temporarily closed to conserve water. 

Greenpeace, who run some of the other showers at the Worthy Farm festival site, said its facilities had been shut to maintain water pressure.
