Glastonbury is one of the biggest and best festivals in the world, full of rock n roll debauchery. And Buddhism.
The Dalai Lama is due to appear at the festival this summer. The bizarre announcement was made on his website, reading:
His Holiness will give a talk at the Glastonbury Festival in the morning.
The leader of Tibetan Buddhism isn’t that strange a booking for the festival, because it regularly has motivational and public speakers. But it is quite a surprise that he is only the second act to be confirmed, joining Lionel Richie.
One thing is for certain, when he goes to the backstage bar, spirits will be lifted (Sorry not sorry).
