Glastonbury Festival advice for drivers

Drivers are advised that motorways and major A roads leading to the Glastonbury Festival site, at Pilton in Somerset are likely to be busy between Wednesday 25 June and Friday 27 June as festival goers arrive.


Increased levels of traffic are also expected on Monday, 30 June as people leave the site.

The following motorways and Highways Agency roads are likely to carry traffic for the festival: A303, M4 and M5.

Pilton is situated five miles outside of Glastonbury and festival traffic has very little impact on the town itself.

The Highways Agency, which manages the motorways and major A roads in England, is advising drivers to plan and check their travel routes in advance, and to keep up-to-date with the latest road conditions.
