BIMM at Glastonbury Festival: The 2024 round up

4 July, 2024

Glastonbury Festival is one of the world’s biggest music and performing arts festivals and on everyone’s mind when it gets to this time of year. With over 200,000 people in attendance, the five-day festival comprises music, dance, comedy, theatre, circus, cabaret and numerous other art forms.

It was headlined this year by pop star Dua Lipa, British rock band Coldplay (in a record-breaking fifth headline appearance on the Pyramid Stage) and American R’n’B singer SZA.
