The world’s most prestigious music festival is set for Michael Eavis’ Worthy Farm next weekend, which means another three days of mud, drugs and misery. And the 100,000+ fans who will be there wouldn’t have it any other way.
Item 1: There will be a see-through toilet at this year’s festival. But that’s not as weird as it sounds. A campaign called Make It Happen will install the Loo with a View overlooking the gigantic Pyramid Stage. Outsiders won’t be able to see in, but the one-way mirror will allow whoever’s on the inside to see out. The whole idea is to raise awareness that about a third of the planet’s population don’t have access to modern plumbing. By having to do one’s business in the midst of a giant crowd (albeit invisible to them), urinaters and poopers will gain insight into what it’s like to have to deal with that sort of indignity.

Item 2: There seems to be some kind of mounting campaign to pelt Kanye West with pee stored in beer cups. Why? Because 134,415 people have signed a petition against having Kanye at Glastonbury. If he isn’t removed from the bill and replaced by someone more pleasing to the angry masses, there’s a good chance that it’s going to raise piss upon him. Really, people? Really?
Item 3: This might be the last year for Glastonbury at Worthy Farm. Michael Eavis is thinking about relocating the event. Hey, would you want to clean up after a party this big?
