festival of contemporary art
The Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts is a performing arts festival that takes place near Pilton, Somerset, England, best known for its contemporary music, but also for dance, comedy, theatre, circus, cabaret and other arts.
Started by Michael Eavis, a farmer in the Somerset valley
The first festival was in the 1970 and was influenced by hippie ethics and the free festival movement.
The festival takes place in south west England at Worthy Farm between the small villages of Pilton and Pylle in Somerset, six miles east of Glastonbury
