Barnes and Noble Indiebound
Glastonbury is a festival like no other, and this visual history follows the world-renowned gathering on its 50th anniversary—complete with photographs, line-ups, and firsthand accounts.
From its humble beginnings as a folk festival (where £1 got you a ticket and a pint of milk), Glastonbury has grown into one of today’s biggest global music events. Hundreds of the world’s most famous acts have played the iconic Pyramid Stage—including the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Coldplay, Radiohead, The Smiths, Jay-Z, Metallica, and Paul McCartney—and tickets sell out within minutes. 50 Years of Glastonbury celebrates the music, the mud, and the mayhem that have made the festival so popular, for fans and artists alike. Packed with incredible photographs and stories of the acts and attendees who have made Glastonbury a phenomenon, this is a must-read book for festivalgoers and music fans everywhere.

Malcolm Croft is a celebrated author and music journalist. He has worked with many of the world's most important bands, including The Flaming Lips, Coldplay, The Verve and many others. He is the author of over 15 books on popular culture and music.
