What Is Glastonbury Music Festival?

The Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts, or simply Glastonbury, is an English music festival that attracts people who appreciate contemporary music, dance, comedy, theater, circus, cabaret and other performing arts.
First organized in the 1970s by Michael Eavis, a farmer in a valley in Somerset, the first Glastonbury festival was inspired by an open air Led Zeppelin concert which Eavis saw at the Bath Festival of Blues and Progressive Music 1970. Still known in its early years as the Pilton Festival, it was a huge hit with hippie because it seemed to embody the hippie culture and the free festival movement.
On subsequent years, Glastonbury saw it attendance grow in size, with the numbers often increasing the number of available tickets because of gate-crashers. The festival now attracts around 150,000 people, served by festival staff who are mostly volunteers.
With more and more pop and rock artists headlining it, along with thousands of other performances in its smaller stages, Glastonbury has achieved international fame and has even inspired films and albums. However big it got, however, it retains traces of its original traditions, such as the Green Fields area, including the Green Futures and Healing Field. Also, the profits from the festival help in raising millions of pounds for good causes.
