History of Glastonbury Festival

Nowadays, Glastonbury is the UK's most-attended festival, attracting headline acts from around the world. But its beginnings were altogether more humble.

  • The Beginnings

    The first event, originally called the Pilton Festival, took place in 1970. 1,500 people attended the inaugural festival, and the headline act was T Rex. In the early years, the Glastonbury Festival was not an annual event.

  • 1990s

    The 1990s saw huge crowds as unofficial festival-goers jumped fences to get in without paying. This period saw memorable performances from Oasis, Jamiroquai, and Pulp.

  • Quirky Headliners

    One of Glastonbury's most famous aspects is inviting acts from outside the pop and rock world to perform. These have included Dolly Parton, Shirley Bassey, and Neil Diamond.
