SOULSHAKERS’ VOODOO PUNCH, AKA ‘THE GLASTONBURY ZOMBIE’
On the 19th of September, a handful of crusty musos descended on Glastonbury for a festival that would eventually become ‘The Largest Green-Field Festival’ in the world.
These days, more than 200,000 attend and see thousands of acts on more than 100 stages, while knackering 400 cubicle bogs, and probably some of the 700 meters of urinals.
You might have been, a lot of people have, and they’ve seen and done a lot of stuff, but frankly there are few things more tedious than reading about someone else’s ‘Glasto’ experiences. And that truth saves us a lot of time writing any more about it here.
What’s important to us is that the incredibly talented ‘tenders at the Soulshakers have run bars at the festival and created an incredible cocktail for the event. The Voodoo Punch is something every bank holiday weekender should consider. And just like Glastonbury, it’s a lot.
