YesColours x Glastonbury Festival: when music and colours unite

All that we've got is this pale blue dot... 

It's been such a pleasure for us to have our paint colours used as part of Glastonbury Festival's decoration for two years in a row now. What a joy.

How it started: YesColours at Glastonbury festival 2022. Thank you for choosing our paint colours for this, Phill @phillcreatesstudioltd.


Even though our team wasn’t physically at the music festival, our paint colours were present for a second year in a row, thanks to the dream team that is Phill from Phill Creates Studio and the contemporary artist Angry Dan.

To complement the blue sky artwork from last year’s Glastonbury edition, Angry Dan has created this incredible art piece that took two days and was painted right there on site before the festival opened its doors to the public. See the full behind the scenes video of Angry Dan's creative process here.

Additionally, our bright and vibrant paint colours were used for the decoration of the outside structure hosted by Avalon Bar and Events, contributing to an even more colourful experience for all festival-goes and music lovers. Colours and music dancing together... what's better than that?

We keep saying that our colours are inspired by the world around us. This is why art and culture are so important to us both as individuals and as a paint company. Seeing our paint being used in such creative ways and knowing the impact this artwork has had on all Bar On The Green visitors brings us all the joy in the world and reminds us once again why we’ve started our colourful journey.

See you all next year... you know where.
