Strummer of Love festival

May 22, 2012

This August, a celebration of the life of one of Glastonbury Festival’s biggest supporters, Joe Strummer, takes place in a secret location in Somerset.

The Strummer of Love festival (which is not organised by Glastonbury Festivals) promises to be a glorious one-off taking place between 17 and 19 August, marking the anniversary of what would have been Joe’s 60th birthday, and also marking 10 years since his death.

Says Michael Eavis: "I got to know Joe in the last years of his life, and his support in our unpopular campaign to control the numbers here in 2002 was invaluable to me. It’s good to know that the spirit of Strummerville will still be alive in our part of the world, especially in our year off."
