Glastonbury Festival goers outrage as punters pay £8 for fries | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
Glastonbury Festival goers were left gobsmacked at this year’s food prices after being charged £8 for a small portion of chips as punters also complained about “London pub” beer prices.
The festival has a wide variety of food vendors on site including many options for vegans as well as staple items such as fish and chips.
According to the Glastonbury website, food and drink costs at the festival are equivalent to London prices.
But the annual event has left fans in awe as food stalls are charging £15 for a chicken burger and fries – or £18 for a double.
The expensive food options did not go down well with some after fans paid more than £300 for tickets.
According to reports, punters are also being charged £15 for a steak salad and various pizzas.
A cheaper option could be to sell six donuts for £5.
Alcoholic drinks will also cost punters with a pint starting from £6.50, a jug of cocktail at £25.00, energy drinks costing around £4.50 and soft drinks starting at £3.
Twitter users reacted with anger at the soaring drink prices, with one writing: “SIX POUNDS EIGHT PENINS” while another said: “Just shy of 7 quid for San Miguel?!”
Another user said: “Robbery b********** can’t wait.”
Some admitted they were glad they had come prepared as a fourth claimed: “I wish I’d packed plenty of rum. Maybe the odd pint from the cider bus helped them. “
Others seemed happy with the prices, with one commenting: “£6 for a cider, not too shabby” while another agreed: “It’s really not that bad.”
A third agreed: “Considering it was £8+ at the weekend cricket, I’m not going to fall for this.”
But spirits drinkers were not happy, as one said: “F*** me those spirit prices.”
Drinks at the festival are roughly in line with London prices but they also offer free drinking water.
The rising prices of the festival have affected many in recent years, and in 2022 co-organiser Emily Eavis responded to the scandal.
She wrote: “We have tried very hard to minimize the increase in ticket prices but we are facing huge increases in the costs of running this huge show.”
