WORTHY TALES!

The likes of David Bowie and Chris Martin contribute to the warts-and-all tome...

‘GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL TALES’, the first book to reveal the inside story behind the legendary music festival, is to be released on June 3.

Featuring the words of performers such as David Bowie, Coldplay‘s Chris Martin and The Chemical Brothers and largely unseen photographs, the book traces the history of Glastonbury from its beginnings as a small local festival in 1970 to today’s mammoth summer event.

Written by John Shearlaw and Crispin Aubrey, the book will also include interviews with everyone involved in the festival, from welfare workers, festival goers and stage builders to the organisers Michael and Emily Eavis.

‘Glastonbury Festival Tales’, with a forward by Michael Eavis, will follow the festival through court cases, riots, shootings, mudbaths as well as the infamous fence scalings.
