Glastonbury gets its own history book

Glastonbury gets its own history book
When we think of Glastonbury we don’t think of books, but to celebrate 50 years of Britain’s leading festival one is coming. Glastonbury 50 is officially sanctioned, has heavy input from elder and younger Eavis, and includes hundreds of photos telling the story.
Yes, it’s a coffee table book. Banksy is doing the cover.
Here’s Emily explaining: “Working on this book has been a fantastic project for me and my dad in the fallow year and in the build-up to this year’s Festival. With our 50th anniversary fast approaching, we felt now was the time to put all of our memories and stories together in one place.” 
“It’s been a total joy to look back through piles of old photo albums and scrapbooks and to reflect upon what it meant at the time, and the incredible evolution of the event. I hope people who’ve been over the years will be able to reminisce and get a flavour of the rich history of Glastonbury through five amazing decades. It’s also been a real honour to have had so many great writers, artists and photographers willing to get involved in helping us to give the full picture.”
The release date is Halloween. Really.
