Glastonbury Festival is a five-day festival of contemporary performing arts that takes place near Pilton, Somerset, England. In addition to contemporary music, the festival hosts dance, comedy, theatre, circus, cabaret, and other arts.
Leading pop and rock artists have headlined, alongside thousands of others appearing on smaller stages and performance areas.
Glastonbury is the largest greenfield festival in the world, and is now attended by around 175,000 people. Regarded as a major event in British culture, the festival is inspired by the ethos of the hippie, counterculture, and free festival movements.
The first Festival was held on the day after Jimi Hendrix died, over a two day period and before long “word had got around”. It was the Blues festival at the Bath & West Showground that had inspired Michael Eavis to begin a festival of his own although on a smaller scale.
