Handbag Economics: How much Glastonbury will really cost you

 | By  |  Add comment

You could buy this designer bag twice over for the cost of going to Glastonbury this year. Let the Handbag Economics calculator explain.

Festival goers
A new study has revealed the true cost of going to Glastonbury festival, even if you are doing it on the cheap.

Regardless of how many packets of instant noodles you eat or how many bags of wine you smuggle down your jeans (crotch wine - you heard it here first), the average festival goer will still spend between £377 and £848.

A survey carried out by Money Dashboard asked 20,000 festival goers to find out the true cost of their weekend.

Shockingly, even those hoping to do it on the cheap can still expect to spend around £380 on the weekend...

No frills Glastonbury costs breakdown


  • Ticket - £215

  • Bus - £38.50

  • Rubbish tent - £20

  • Cheap sunglasses - £2

  • Hat - £5

  • Tinned food & noodles - £24.50

  • Sleeping mat - £15

  • Warm smuggled beer - £30

  • Toiletries - £5.80

  • Cheap wellies - £6

  • Festival wardrobe - £16

TOTAL: £377.80

This rapidly increases for those who want to spend money on catering vans, the bar, going by train or investing in small luxuries like face wipes.

Glastonbury now costs the same as going on holiday somewhere warm, or by our Handbag Economics calculator, you could buy this much coveted Sophie Anderson Nataly Bag (£245, MatchesFashion.com) and still have change for a massive BBQ in the garden to watch it on the telly.
