Glastonbury: The Book – 50 Years Of An Epic Festival

Glastonbury 50Glastonbury 50: The Book

The build-up to Glastonbury’s 50th anniversary is certainly picking up steam. We’ve seen rumors in the press that the Spice Girls may have a full reunion for the festival, Wolf Alice and surprise guests Supergrass played the Pilton Party, the festival’s tickets go on sale in early October and even Atlas Helicopters have collated a list of 50 facts about Glastonbury. What’s next? A book!

On 31st October, Glastonbury 50 is released, the festival’s official book celebrating its 50th anniversary. The book sees Michael and Emily Eavis reveal the stories behind the event in their own words, alongside hundreds of incredible photos and artefacts, plus pieces from guest contributors including Adele, JAY-Z, Dolly Parton, Chris Martin, Julie Christie, Billy Bragg, Caitlin Moran, Lars Ulrich, Suzanne Vega, Ed O’Brien and Banksy.

Glastonbury 50 is available to pre-order here.
