Glastonbury Festival is the largest greenfield music and performing arts festival in the world and a template for all the festivals that have come after it. The difference is that Glastonbury has all the best aspects of being at a festival in one astonishing bundle.
Glastonbury is now big business: corporate sponsors wine and dine guests in lavish VIP tents. Young hotshot record company executives party with the newest bands. Advertising hoardings are visible everywhere, and backstage, celebrities, complete with Gucci sunglasses and Prada wellies, pose and pout with purpose.
Lil’Tim performed with the Freestylers on the Jazz stage. Visual dance artist Lil’Tim gave the audience some eye candy to compliment the electronic beats and live band.
