One day, a farmer decided to set up a music festival. Michael Eavis had seen a Music/LedZeppelin concert and was a bit influenced by the hippy movement, although not that much, as he's a practising Christian.

This was the result. Taking place most years (there are breaks every five years to allow the land to recover) at Worthy Farm, near Glastonbury, Somerset. In TheWestCountry if you need a better generalization.

Glasto, as it's commonly known, has become famous for people frequently sneaking in without paying, the Pyramid Stage and frequently becoming a mudbath. Consequentially, it has become synonymous with wellie boots. There has been violence at the past and a lot of arrests for drug possession.

In the past 20 or so years, the festival has been dominated by AlternativeRock, and {{Britpop}} in particular. The 2008 Festival (27-29 June) was the first for 15 years not to sell out before it began, probably due to the controversial decision to have Jay-Z (a hip-hop act) headlining.

The American equivalent (in terms of importance, attendance and general structure) is the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California, but that only started in 1999.

** Unless you're actually from the local area. In which case it is commonly known by it's REAL name 'The Pilton Pop Festival' or just 'Pilton'. Pilton is the village 'near Glastonbury' where the farm is actually located.
