Retro : BBC – Glastonbury After Hours

I just watched this fascinating insight into one of the world’s most famous festivals – Glastonbury. Situated in the idyllic countryside of Somerset every June when thousands descend on this town for the festival. Though this year it is taking a break to improve facilities and it will be back for 2013. Michael Eavis originally started it on his farmland and nowadays his daughter Emily keeps it going. Nearly every band of note has played it or wants to, but it is also to preview many new acts and styles too. I do remember going a few times back in the 80’s and it was never near to selling out. Then we had the very publicised events with the travellers back in the early 90’s. Now it has the big wall and is sold out within hours. You also see footage of festival goers covered in mud! I paid £45.00 for some wellies, my tent was washed away and have even had my food stolen in 2005. I have been when the sun shone too. But overall I have enjoyed the experience and along with Roskilde it is one of the best festivals I have attended. So sit back and watch Julian Temple’s programme showing behind the scenes of this event.
