Official Glastonbury 50 book released on 31 October 2019


June 5, 2019

We’re very pleased to announce the 31 October 2019 release of Glastonbury 50, our official book celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Festival. Glastonbury 50 sees Michael and Emily Eavis reveal the stories behind the event in their own words, alongside hundreds of incredible photos taken since the Festival’s birth in 1970.

Michael and Emily are joined by a host of big-name contributors – among them Adele, JAY-Z, Dolly Parton, Chris Martin, Julie Christie, Noel Gallagher, Jarvis Cocker, Suzanne Vega, Lars Ulrich and Guy Garvey.

Glastonbury50 is published in hardback by Trapeze, priced £30. You can click here to pre-order the book – exclusively signed by Michael and Emily Eavis – from Waterstones now.

“Working on this book has been a fantastic project for me and my dad in the fallow year and in the build-up to this year’s Festival. With our 50th anniversary fast approaching, we felt now was the time to put all of our memories and stories together in one place,” says Emily Eavis. “It’s been a total joy to look back through piles of old photo albums and scrapbooks and to reflect upon what it meant at the time, and the incredible evolution of the event. I hope people who’ve been over the years will be able to reminisce and get a flavour of the rich history of Glastonbury through five amazing decades. It’s also been a real honour to have had so many great writers, artists and photographers willing to get involved in helping us to give the full picture.”
