The definitive Glastonbury movie experience!
14 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Attended a film event at the Colston Hall in Bristol of Julien Temple's documentary about the well known UK festival, from its origins in 1970 as a free festival - clock the footage of folk singer Melanie really giving her all here, plus various archive footage reminiscent of Woodstock - right up to the massive corporate-sponsored event it is today. My wife works for a well-known phone company so we got tickets quite easily and at a reduced rate and she now wants to volunteer to work on the phone charging stand . . . but won't sleep in a tent! Anyway, this movie does not run in any chronological sequence but intersperses past footage with more recent festivals, with a very in-your-face approach. Watch as eager freeloaders try to scale the Superfence and get chased away by security gorillas. Be reminded of heavy-handed police tactics of the Battle of the Beanfield in 1985, which inspired segments of both books I wrote(and promote on appropriate websites.) and also discover why organiser Michael Eavis had to let travellers leave when anarchist types infiltrated them and ruined an otherwise peaceful community. Mud lovers will also revel in footage of last year's flooding shambles and various drunken antics! Clock the entertainers and garish, freakish but very funny and well designed costumes they wear! Go harmonise with nature . . . hee. Live music footage includes Coldplay, Scissor Sisters, Bob Marley, Billy Bragg, David Gray, Chemical Brothers, Velvet Underground(I loved these in my youth!), David Bowie . . . and ROLF HARRIS.

Like another reviewer stated, it almost feels like you are there in amongst the madness and noise. Having worked behind the scenes last year on site there with scaffolding for the TV tower situated in front of the main pyramid stage, walking atop the stage(half built!), asking lots of questions(research!), and clearing up afterwards, it was a fascinating and hugely entertaining piece of history brought to life. Whatever music you like, there's something for everyone here. I have to say that I would not like the job of the cleaners in a certain part of the event.

But not only did we get the movie, we also got a short acoustic set by The Levellers, which for me brought back so many memories of 1990-1992, I followed them when they toured with New Model Army, met them, got crammed into a small Leicester venue called the Princess Charlotte while those that couldn't get in listened in the streets in 1990, and had fun. This band still have all that energy, even seated playing acoustic! Highly recommended.
