The Weather

Festival needs to improve on planning the days of the event

Weather is one of the major factor whether an event will be successful or not. We received complaints from Glastonbury-goers that experienced a major disappointment with the festival. Some of them were not happy on the facilities provided to them, like the restroom. There were series of long lines in comfort rooms and we understand that is a difficult place to be in, specially when nature calls for your attention. Another number of complaints we received, came from those people who are afraid to be trenched foot. We know that it was raining cats and dogs that day and some times it can cause major discomforts for most people. The long lines in the bathroom is also caused by people wanting to wash their feet and were soaking wet, and had to change clothes.

What we learned:

There is a need for a better planning

You cannot bring thousands of people in one place only to make the uncomfortable. We understand that the weather is unpredictable but there is something that can be done to get a higher percentage of plotting the event on the perfect days. Weather forecasting is the key, though it may not be 100% correct all the time, but at least we have a basis of planning the event on best days possible.

We have so many reputable sources available online like BBC Weather Watch, AccuWeather, The Weather Channel, and MetOffice. Make sure to visit these sites first before deciding to join this kind of festival. Weather is so powerful, it can make someone’s day great or can totally turn it into mess. But still don’t let the weather to have sole power of what you feel. Here’s a thoughtful quote we want you to remember:

Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.
