Glastonbury Festival 2024 Kicks Off Amid Rail Chaos and Controversy Over ‘Vegan Cocaine’ Alternatives at Worthy Farm

The Glastonbury Festival launched with high spirits last night, as thousands of music lovers indulged in everything from laughing gas balloons to novel “vegan alternatives to cocaine”.

With headliners like Dua Lipa, Coldplay, and Shania Twain, the five-day extravaganza promises an unforgettable experience.

However, not everything went smoothly for festival-goers, especially those traveling from London.

Rail disruptions due to unfortunate incidents caused cancellations and delays, adding to the logistical hurdles amid the festival’s grand opening.

Following scorching temperatures, the festival-goers woke up to rain showers and damp conditions, adapting with outdoor showers and retreating to their makeshift cardboard tents.

Despite the weather shift, activities kicked off with fitness sessions led by Joe Wicks and a vibrant 5K run around Worthy Farm.

Among the eclectic offerings were ‘laughing gas’ balloons and a controversial ‘vegan cocaine’ substitute sold by Karmaceuticals.

Marketed as enhancing cognitive sharpness without the legal and health risks of cocaine, it stirred curiosity and debate among attendees.

Musical Highlights and Weather Forecasts

Looking ahead, the festival promises diverse musical performances, interactive installations like the new fire-belching dragonfly at Arcadia, and varied weather forecasts ranging from rain to sunshine.

Preparedness and Health Tips

As festivities coincide with warm weather and potential health challenges, NHS Somerset advised attendees on staying well, emphasizing simple steps to manage the heat and enjoy the event safely.

From Junior Doctor Protests to Art Installations
