Glastonbury toilets 2019

28th June 2019

Glastonbury toilets 2019

Glastonbury 2019 kicked off on June 26th and well underway! With a total of 2,800 performances across 79 stages.  You can find the full list on the Glastonbury website.

Glastonbury have made a point to not pee anywhere except for in the loos as urine can kill fish and wildlife in the streams and also pollute the farm. They have asked to respect each other and respect the farm which they have made it very clear on the website.


As found from the Glastonbury Website, these are the types of toilets you will find at Glastonbury Festival:

• LONG DROPS A Glastonbury Festival tradition! Lockable and open air, once again we have built even more this year and now have over 2,000 long drop seats across the site!

• COMPOST LOOS Glastonbury Festival now has over 1,300 compost toilets across the site (with more than 1,100 supplied by Natural Event).  Only toilet paper should be put down a compost loo and sawdust should be sprinkled after a ‘number 2’. The sawdust is located outside the loos and you scoop a cup of it before you go to the loo.

• PORTABLE TOILETS There are less plastic portable loos than ever on site but if you do come across one make sure you flush it before and after each use as they become blocked quickly.

• DISABLED TOILETS There are wheelchair accessible toilets on viewing platforms at all the main stages and throughout the site. These are locked to avoid them being misused. If you are registered disabled and require access to these toilets please contact [email protected] prior to the start of the festival to apply for this access.

• URINALS and SHEPEES There are over 700 metres of male urinals dotted across the site. The lovingly decorated female urinals known as “Shepees” are cared for by WaterAid volunteers who are also on hand to assist newcomers!  There are four Shepee sites for 2019: the Cider Bus, The Park, Glasto Latino and in the Kings Meadow.

If you have any Glastonbury toilet stories, let us know!

We encounter blocked drains and toilets on a daily basis here at Metro Rod Bristol and often asked what can and what can't be flushed.  Blocked pipes will stop the water flowing away and can cause unwanted smells. Instead of knowing what you can't put down the toilet it is easier to remember what to put down.

Must always remember only to flush the three P's, paper, poo and pee.

If you think you have a blocked drain or for more information, you can visit our website if you would like to like to book in for a FREE site assessment with our technical engineer call us on 01225 344511 or email [email protected]
