Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts

26-30 of June

The Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts takes place near Pilton, Somerset, England. It features live music as well as dance, comedy, theatre, and other arts. The first festival in 1970 was organized by Michael Eavis, a farmer in Somerset Valley, after he attended an open air Led Zeppelin concert. The festival has taken place almost every year since, and today is attended by around 150,000 people.
