Yesterday, on June 21st, we celebrated the Summer Solstice, marking the official start of summer in the northern hemisphere. What many people may not be aware of is that the Summer Solstice also signifies the beginning of festival season here in the UK, with Glastonbury Festival always starting the weekend after the longest day of the year. Glastonbury is a renowned festival that celebrates music and various forms of art. The inaugural festival took place in September 1970 on Worthy Farm, its current location. Back then, it attracted around 1,500 attendees. Today, the festival has a maximum capacity of 210,000 people. The festival grounds span an impressive 1,100 acres of Worthy Farm, equivalent to 500 football pitches placed side by side.
Glastonbury past and present:
Since its inception, Glastonbury Festival had been a staple for 49 years, but unfortunately, its 50th Birthday Celebration had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. However, in 2022, the festival finally got to celebrate its milestone, and what a celebration it was! Glastonbury is known for providing a platform for both emerging artists to shine and megastars to put on spectacular performances. The 2022 edition featured over 3,000 performances across 100 stages.
One of the highlights of Glastonbury is the three nights of music on the iconic Pyramid stage, which always feature three major headliners. Last year, the festival welcomed Paul McCartney, Billie Eilish, and Kendrick Lamar as the headliners. In previous years, we have seen legendary acts such as Oasis, Van Morrison, David Bowie, Coldplay, and many more take the stage. This year, the festival will bring back the Arctic Monkeys as headliners once again, with Guns N’ Roses making their Glastonbury debut, and the final performance in the UK by the iconic Sir Elton John, making it a truly memorable event.
EWFMs recent celebration:
EWFM had a significant reason to celebrate recently. In the past month, we underwent our annual ISO 9001-2015 Quality Standard assessment. The ISO Certificate serves as “a seal of approval from a third-party body that confirms a company’s adherence to one of the international standards developed and published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).”
For the 32nd time, we are delighted to announce that EWFM has once again passed the assessment without any major or minor non-conformances. This achievement reflects the dedication and professionalism of our team over the past year and highlights our commitment to maintaining a high standard.
We hope that this accomplishment further demonstrates our unwavering commitment to delivering a quality product and service to our valued customers. If you have any upcoming product needs or inquiries, please don’t hesitate to contact our sales team. They will be more than happy to assist you.
