Q&A with Harvey Juggling

How does it feel to be heading to the famous Worthy Farm to perform at this year’s Glastonbury Festival?

I feel very excited and will be soaking up the atmosphere.  

What can you tell us about your show?

My show is a Juggling and Comedy show that is suited to a street or festival setting. 

Will playing to a festival audience change how you approach your show?

I mostly do festivals and street shows so personally I am used to this type of audience. But I think it is good you keep constant with how you approach your show even if the audience is different, as it makes your show stronger. 

You’ve also played at Edinburgh Fringe – what was that experience like?

The Edinburgh Fringe is fast and very fun, there are so many shows to see and so much to do, I love the Fringe and will be back this year!

Are you looking forward to seeing any of the other acts across the weekend?

I think that I will spend most of the weekend watching others and gaining knowledge and inspiration.
