Glastonbury gatecrashers have been digging underground tunnels to gain festival entry
| Last updated
Festival goers have been trying a range of frankly bizarre ways to try and get into Glastonbury.
Whether it's a festival or any other public event, there are some weird and whacky ways that people try to get around the rules.
And it's safe to say, people can be very creative.
Back in 2017, someone made the decision to try and smuggle a bottle of vodka inside of a sandwich while attending Southwell Racecourse on Sunday for Ladies' Day. And in 2019, one mum even disguised some bottles of wine as birthday gifts.
But, now it seems like it's extended to not just booze, but to people themselves.
At least in Glastonbury's case.
The line-up for Glastonbury this year looks to be pretty interesting.
It all sounds very exciting indeed.
And the festival is surrounded by a pretty impressive fence.
A description of it on Sunbelt Rental's website reads: “Standing 4.12m high and 7.8km long, the fence has unique high-security features including an attached external roadway to prevent tunnelling, 45-degree overhangs to prevent climbing and zero nuts and bolts to stop the fence being tampered with.”
But even that isn't enough to stop some gatecrashers, who have resorted to some inventive methods to try and gain entry to the festival.
And they're certainly creative, boiling down to two basic methods: either going under the fence or over it.
Those who are attempting to climb over the fence have tried bringing grappling hooks to try and climb in, evading security staff like some sort of gatecrashing ninja.
One security guard told the Times: “It’s wild. We’ve had to chase people down who bolted through the gates with their bags on, and some use grappling hooks to pull panels off the wall and climb over, like Batman.”
Meanwhile, others have taken a different approach.
Instead of trying to rush the entrance or climb over the fence, they dig tunnels underneath, pitching tents against the barriers in order to hide their work.
A security worker said: "[They] come under the wall, it’s like The Great Escape but in reverse."
LADbible have reached out to Glastonbury for comment.
As per Somerset Live, a mysterious tunnels lies under the old railway line at the Glastonbury festival - a straight path that can get you from the Greenpeace Field to the Green Futures area.
There's also a festival area called Strummerville, where festival-goers can sit back, relax and have a nice cold drink.
