RunTime: 135 mins
Genre: Music Documentary
Rating: M18 (Brief Nudity)
Will Appeal To: Music Lovers of this genre

A documentary on the 30th anniversary of Britain's best-known music festival. The film invites audiences to submerge themselves in the spirit, characters and overwhelming sensory experiences of Glastonbury - the longest running and most pre-eminent music festival in the world.

Glastonbury allowed me to see another side of this world, where people gather just to celebrate music. The crowd was delirious, and the atmosphere overwhelming. Music lovers from all over the world turn up in camps literally, to join in the fun of watching performances from Cold Play, Chemical Brothers to Blur.

The documentary started off well in celebration of fans dancing in the nude, pitching tents, and making friends who share a common love.

Unfortunately, it dragged on to become a mishmash of random footages from home videos, regardless of time period, subject, or music genre. It even featured on how they got rid of human wastes in between screaming fans and Bjork singing. Hmm...

135 minutes is really too long for a movie. The filmmakers forgot a movie is not a concert.

Glastonbury – Strictly for fans
