i'm assuming this new piece is on site... if so, i can't see how you'd get a look in without a ticket. I live 20 mins or so from Pilton and drove through there several times last week. Security have been on all the main access points for over a week and from today, the old bill will be blocking all the small back roads aropund the site. If I was you CBL and i didn't have a ticket, i wouldn't bother!
It's in Glastonbury Town NOT the Festival.
From what I can gather it's a stones throw from the Rifes pub.
On the main road to Shepton.
I may be wrong but will have a look on me way to work.

This is simply Banksy standing up for the rights of the festival going community. For years the police have been given special licenses to search people contrary to normal rules that request an element of suspicion. At Glastonbury in particular they get to set up road blocks on the motorway and siphon traffic in to side lanes and then use the threat of dogs and strip vans to find a bag of weed and secure our DNA forever. Once at the green gathering everyone was so incensed at the police bullying at the entrance that hundreds of people acted a naked protest and went and frisked the coppers back. The truth is that if the police used their bully boy tactics at the proms they would no doubt find allot of cocaine and if they looked harder they would find shed loads of white collar crime in the form of insider dealing and tax fraud to name but a few. Banksy here is showing his root's and standing up for a community that has always been victimised..... This is so f**king refreshing to see the man is back !
warning.......if you own a camper van and are travelling on the a303 at glastonbury time the police will always stop you at chicklade.

It definitely was fresh, pink spray paint on the tips of the grass and weeds, it's in a very obvious location on the main A361 road to Shepton Mallet between The Riflemans pub and the Chalice Well.
If you want to find it on a map use multimap and the postcode BA6 D .
you fool! you could of picked that pink banksy grass and sold it on ebay.
I reckon this won't last very long - it's bad publicity for the police and micheal eavis
Damn, I didn't think of that, original hand sprayed grass by Banksy, I had it in my hands too ;D
A lot of people just walked by without noticing it, a few only noticed it cos I was photographing it, and some seemed very knowledgeable, the nice guy who took my photo recognised it as a Banksy, he had just come from the Pilton site where he was working as a steward.
Also a nice old lady from Bristol (over 60 she said but didn't look it!) was really interested in it and got her camera out, in fact I gave her this web site address so I wouldn't be surprised if she joins this forum!
