You won’t need your wellies to watch the UK musical festival here

This Dubai spot is hosting a Glastonbury brunch

Festivalgoer with FOMO of Glastonbury 2019?

Well, worry no more as garden on 8 in Media One Hotel is hosting a special Glastonbury-themed brunch this Friday June 28 from 12.30pm until 4pm.

Head to the popular garden terrace and enjoy unlimited barbecue bites and free-flowing house drinks for Dhs395.

And to make you feel like you’re really at the popular British festival (bar the dodgy porta loos and knee high mud) there’s also going to be flower headbands, straw hats, live music from eight different home-grown bands, a DJ spinning everything from old-school tunes to current hits. And in even better news the festival will be live streamed on a massive screen.

The talented line-up (as of now) includes Sound of Nomads, Soultrip, Out of Knowhere, Lea Realon, Boye Henry, Shez Mo, Anastasia and Kāryoké.

The dress code is “no frills, no heels, no over the top dressing up” so wear your flip-flops (which is a nice change from the usual festival attire of wellies), get the glitter out and have your flower crowns at the ready.

For those who haven’t heard of Glastonbury, it’s a five-day festival that has been taking place in Somerset, England since the ‘70s and it only gets bigger, louder and weirder every year. This year the roster reads like a who’s who of the past, present and future with megastars including The Killers, The Cure, Stormzy, Kylie, Janet Jackson, George Ezra and Miley Cyrus hitting the main stage.

We’re already feeling in the festival mood.

Also, don’t worry about the heat – there’s a tent with the air-con on full blast so get ready to sip a cold drink, enjoy the food on offer and dance the afternoon away.
