Well Balanced

I knew I was here for a greater purpose than to sing songs to make people gyrate, drink and enjoy themselves. I was here to sing songs that uplift, educate and eradicate negativity.

The first Glastonbury Festival, mounted by Michael Eavis at Worthy Farm in September 1970, was actually called the Pilton Pop, Blues & Folk Festival, and it was attended by a mighty horde of 1,500 music fans. The second and much larger free festival at Worthy Farm the following year, Glastonbury Fayre, was the first to attract nationwide interest with acts such as Family, Fairport Convention, David Bowie, Gong and Traffic.
