T-Shirts From Glastonbury Festival ’07


Glastonbury Festival is like a combination of woodstock and burning man… but much wetter. Anyway, I was lucky enough to go this year and had a blast. I don’t have a lot of time to write a lot about it but I thought I’d post some t-shirts I saw and snapped there.

This was Billy Brag, he was brilliant and his t-shirt was super simple, it just said “read”, probably one of the most memorable performances for me.

Say no more

This was great, it reads “Bluetooth Johnson”, kind of a modern version of “remember billy only retards wear their collars up”

and this little lebowski urban achiever was surving us some delicious Brothers Pear Cider, 7% ABV – Festival strength

Yours truly in a “your empire needs you” t-shirt, one of my favorite recent acquisitions

and you might recognize this t-shirt from the justice dance video

I think most of these designs were ripped off from some other designers, I saw lots of threadless rip offs (obviously flowers in the attic and the dark side of the garden) as well getting sold in various stores, a real shame, I actually got chased out of one of the stores because I was photographing some stolen threadless designs





You can see all my photo’s from Glastonbury here, cheers.

    Nice, thanks Andy! Yeah I tried the strawberry cider and the lemon, but my fav was the pear because the strawberry and lemon are both 6.3% ABV :-)

    Excellent photos, everyone I’ve spoken to had a great time this year, best Glasto for ages. I don’t understand why anyone would rip off someone elses design, it’s thievery of the lowest kind.

    Well I do ‘understand’ it’s about making money but it’s dirty, dirty money. Top posting as always, who was the guy in the DANCE tee? Was he told of his impending celebrity?

    I had a friend come back from England so very proud of his rip-off Dark Side of the Garden shirt.

    He probably spent more than $30 on it. Never had the heart to tell him he coulda picked it up from Threadless for a fraction.

  6. [...] I remember spotting this Bluetooth Johnson shirt in a tcritic post during the summer. Man, it rained on us so much in Glastonbury this year it was sick! It’s [...]
