Glastonbury Festival 2015 – The Common – Site Management

Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Arts
The Common
Worthy Farm, Pilton, United Kingdom
June 2015

The Parachute International Team were proud to return to Worthy Farm for another year to provide Site Management and Crewing for The Common 2015.

The Concept
The Common is a fully immersive event district, created by some of the UK’s premier event producers. The Common has 7 distinct venues, each with its own unique and vibrant theme, design, and story. These themes range from ancient Mayan gods, to caves, volcanoes and waterfalls, into Dia De Los Muertos reminiscent regions of rum shacks and hidden gardens. The Common has a capacity of 15,000, and in addition to its 7 venues, has 5 bars, and is a key component of Glastonbury Festival’s late night entertainment precinct.

The centrepiece of the field is The Temple- an impressively large, in-the-round venue built from reclaimed loch gates- which is fully projection mapped, guarded by four 8m tall guardian totem poles which beam light, and crowned with a 4 face god head. Another impressive feature The Cave, is a venue you can only access by discovering the entrance hidden behind the cascading water from a spectacular three-tiered waterfall. 

Build & Break
The Common takes around twenty five days to build, and is delivered by a team of around 120 people, comprised of the site and event production team, decor teams, technical production and more.

The video below gives you an idea of the unique and amazing production that is The Common.
