This Friday (Dec 17th) at 9pm, BBC Four is premiering a cracking new documentary, Festivals Britannia, which tells the story of the emergence and evolution of the British music festival through the mavericks, dreamers and dropouts who have produced, enjoyed and sometimes fought for them over the last 50 years – naturally with quite a bit of focus on Glastonbury. Then, after the documentary, at 10.30pm, they’re airing an hour of highlights of Pulp’s classic 1995 Glastonbury set.
Festivals Britannia will then be broadcast again on Sunday (Dec 19th) at 11.45pm. That showing will be followed by an hour of Radiohead’s career-defining 1997 Glastonbury performance, at 1.15am.
It’s fair to say that we’re quite excited about it all.
