Tourettes Raises the Roof at Glastonbury!

Glastonbury is one of the largest and most well-known music festivals in the world, and this year, it brought a unique experience to the stage. For the first time, the festival opened the floor to artists with Tourette Syndrome. Tourettes Glastonbury was created to provide a platform for Tourette’s performers to showcase their skills on stage.

The event was spearheaded by the charity Tourettes Action, whose team worked on creating a safe and comfortable environment for participants and audience members alike. Performers included singer-songwriter Toby Burcon, hip hop artist Rhyme Virus, and spoken-word artist MK Dauka.

The show was met with an incredibly positive reception from visitors, and one of the participants said the reverberation of applause helped them channel their creativity:

  • “The energy was electric, and the crowd was well-engaged with every artist.”
  • “Using tics in performance as a form of expression, rather than an inhibition, was a surreal experience.”

The Tourettes Glastonbury show marks a huge milestone for the Tourette Syndrome community, and the performers themselves. After this show, they can truly say they made it in the music industry.

It’s fair to say that Glastonbury has welcomed all kinds of acts and performances, but Sarah and her band’s energetic performance will no doubt remain as one of the highlights of the festival. The crowd response to her show was incredible and it’s safe to say she definitely “Raised The Roof”. You rock, Sarah!
