Description: In 1970 Michael Eavis opened his 150-acre farm to 1,500 people each paying one pound to watch a handful of pop and folk stars perform over the summer-solstice weekend. With that the Glastonbury Festival was born. It is now the longest running and most popular music and arts festival in history. Hundreds of thousands of people have enjoyed the Glastonbury festival and millions more around the world have watched it on television or listened to broadcasts on the radio. The Glastonbury film project began in 2002 when the future of the festival was in question. Michael Eavis wanted a record of the Festival's history in case it turned out to be the final year. With less than a month before the 2002 festival there was no time to lose. Long time festival worker Robert Richards took on the role as producer and he quickly enlisted the help of Somerset based director Julien Temple - The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle, Absolute Beginners, Filth and the Fury. Within weeks 12 film crews were ready to record events.
