Glastonbury Fayre, The Movie


You all know that the Glastonbury Festival, England, is one of the places to be every summer. The last one was held at the end of last June, headline acts included Leonard Cohen, Kings of Leon, The Verve… Cool.
But I want to talk about the beginnings. The first one was organized in 1970 for an intimate crowd, the main act was T.Rex. Then the next one called The Glastonbury Fayre was organised during the summer solstice of 1971. The Festival featured the first incarnation of the Pyramid Stage built from scaffolding and metal sheeting. Performers included David Bowie, Family, Gong, Traffic, Fairport Convention, Hawkwind, Quintessence, and Melanie. The 1971 festival was filmed by Nicolas Roeg (Performance) and David Puttnam and was released as a film called simply
Glastonbury Fayre (1972).
You must see this film (documentary!) even if David Bowie refused to be shown and that you will only hear the music of Gong without having the pleasure to see Daevid Allen and his friends on stage. Despite those little remarks, catch it if you can… on TV or on DVD. It’s a legendary moment. It’s fun, it’s free and it’s peace.
