OK, but the earlier Glastonbury movie was better
6 June 2002 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

The annual Glastonbury Festival has been a British institution for over 30 years. This movie captures the spirit of the festival in the 1990s, but the earlier movie "Glastonbury Fayre", featuring the 2nd festival in 1971, appeals more to me, both for its mood (somehow more innocent than the 90s version) and the music. However I may be biased, as I was there and appear on the edge of the screen for about one second! Also the music of the late 60s and early 70s is more to my taste than the performers in the later movie, so don't let me put you off the later one if you don't share my tastes. Both movies, like "Woodstock", focus on the audience and the happenings around the grounds as well as on the music.

For some reason, Glastonbury Fayre seems to have slipped into obscurity since its original theatrical release. It was briefly released on VHS in the UK a few years ago, and I believe got one TV showing. It would be nice if someone could resurrect it on DVD.
