Hey Cosmos

This is another wonderful place to visit in the UK, at any time of the year as well...........

Have been here few times over the yrs, and to the "Glastonbury Festival" which is held every yr..........

Now that is something to talk about heheheheehe

1970 (19th September)

 The first Festival was held on the day after Jimi Hendrix died, over a two day period and before long “word had got around”. It was the Blues festival at the Bath & West Showground that had inspired Michael Eavis to begin a festival of his own although on a smaller scale.

Acts included: Marc Bolan, Keith Christmas, Stackridge, Al Stewart. Attendance: 1,500.

Price: £1 including free milk from the farm.

2008 was a year for electrifying sets by golden oldies interspersed amongst the wealth of new music; Solomon Burke, Joan Baez, Gilbert O’Sullivan, Jimmy Cliff, Joan Armatrading, and Neil Diamond  all went down a storm, but Leonard Cohen stole the entire weekend in dapper style, leading the crowd in an astonishing chorus of ‘Hallelujah’, and performing a taut set of his greatest hits as the sun went down on the Festival’s final day.

Others who provided great moments included Manu Chao, Massive Attack, Groove Armada, Seasick Steve , Lupe Fiasco , Mark Ronson , Dizzy Rascal , Ozomatli , Eddy Grant , Stanton Warriors , Natty , Dr Meaker , Fun Loving Criminals, The National, Tunng and Laura Marling. Katie Melua and Will Young gave intimate sets at the Avalon Stage.  Late night entertainment was varied and stunning with the Park going from strength to strength, and Trash City, in its new home, and Shangrli-la keeping festival goers dancing til dawn...

Attendance 134,000 Weekend Tickets, 37,500 passes(for crew, performers, stewards,traders etc,) and 6,000 Sunday Tickets. Tickets were £155 including programme.

Wow the price has certainly gone up alot...............I used to go back in the 80's, when I lived down that way !

Magical Glastonbury
By Tyberonn

Located in England's southwest corner is the legendary village of Glastonbury. Rich in both myth and history ,Glastonbury is one of the most spellbinding places in the world. Recognized as a spiritual center since the megalithic era, it is the site of the first Christian church in the British Isles and claimed to be the Avalon of King Arthur.

The small village of Glastonbury itself is lovely and quaint, cradled among a series of velvety green hills. The tallest of these hills is the famous Tor, an oblong hill formation with the impressive remains of a church tower on top, dedicated to the Archangel Michael. At the foot of the Tor is the Chalice Well and the spherical dome of Chalice Hill. Below in the town center lay the ruins of the great Abbey, site of Joseph of Arimathea's church, and gravesite of the legendary King Arthur. Wearyall Hill, location of the legendary thorn tree is on the west entrance to the village.
