Summary

In the summer of 1971 the Glastonbury legend was born when the organizers decided to try and create a festival that would be a forerunner for an "alternative and utopian society." The festival encompassed Midsummer's Day, and in true medieval tradition, the area of Worthy Farm, Pilton was given over to music, dance, poetry, theatre, spontaneous entertainment and nudity. The aspiring director Nic Roeg (DON'T LOOK NOW, THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH) took his film crew to the second Glastonbury festival and recorded the people, the music and their summer of love. The music of Terry Reid, Family, Melanie, Fairport Convention, Traffic, Linda Lewis and Arthur Brown are part of the legend of GLASTONBURY FAYRE, but the real stars of this film are the festival goers, organizers Arabella Churchill and Andrew Kerr and the first appearance of the pyramid stage.
