Episode Summary

Glastonbury Fayre (Glastonbury 1971)
The first festival, a small scale event of 1,500 people called the Pilton Festival, was created by Michael Eavis in 1970. The first artist to perform was the group Stackridge. This was followed by the larger scale Glastonbury Fayre of 1971, now also with the help of co-organisers Andrew Kerr and Arabella Churchill. The 1971 festival featured the first incarnation of the "Pyramid Stage" conceived by Bill Harkin, built from scaffolding and metal sheeting. It was paid for by its supporters and advocates of its ideal, and took a medieval tradition of music, dance, poetry, theatre, lights and spontaneous entertainment. The 1971 festival was filmed by Nicolas Roeg and David Puttnam and was released as a film simply called Glastonbury Fayre.moreless
