The History of Glastonbury Festival
Glastonbury Festival was started by founder and somerset dairy farmer Michael Eavis back in the 1970’s. Michael apparently had the idea to create a festival while watching a Led Zepplin gig at the open air festival ‘Bath Festival of Blues and Progressive Music 1970’.
The first festival that he put together was a two day event that started on September 19th 1970 which was the day after legend Jimi Hendrix died (very sad day for music lovers). The first Glastonbury festival was called the ‘Pilton Festival’ which later changed its name to ‘Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts’. The estimated attendance for the 1970 festival was around 1500 people which in today’s standard is not many at all! Continue reading The History of Glastonbury Festival

With festival season just about ready to kick off here in the UK we wanted to bring to your attention something that has gained a lot of support from festivals and festival goers alike.
There are many festivals across the UK that have signed up and are in full support of the Safer Spaces Campaign. Looking online there seem to be many different variations of this campaign all across the globe however, each having basically the same aim – creating an environment where people can feel safe when they are out at a festival, venue or just out and about, without worrying about being sexually assaulted or party to any other crimes.
