Glastonbury Festival is another iconic music event that takes place in the days following the summer solstice.
Glastonbury is located about an hour from Stonehenge and is famous for the Glastonbury Tor or a hill on which St. Michael’s Tower is located.
There are legends about this place that lead back to Avalon, Ynys yr Afalon, the famous island linked to the myth of King Arthur, very exciting indeed.
Glastonbury also stands on a Ley line: a temporary line i.e. one of the lines that virtually connect places of historical significance related to the spiritual sphere.
Glastonbury Festival on the other hand concerns the musical sphere and was born in 1970 from the inspiration of Michael Evis after attending a Led Zeppelin performance.
What can we say … there is to be understood.
Throughout the years there have been memorable performances, difficult even to rank, out of all of them I would like to mention this one
Recently R.E.M. published on their twitter profile five songs taken from their 1999 concert asking their fans to vote for the best among: Loosing my religion, It’s the end of the world as we know it (we have already chatted about this song here) Everybody hurts, At my most beautiful and Man on the moon.
Would you know how to choose?
Or do you have your own favorite performance by any other artist?
The Glastonbury Festival is also a case opportunity to indulge in distinctive outfits, but they turn out differently than those sported in the California sunshine for Coachella.
Sun or rain as long as there is good music!
And of course coffee 🙂
