eFestivals is a website listing music festivals; hosting information on line-ups, interviews, photographs and live reviews.[2]

History[edit]

The website was launched in 1998 as "The Original Glastonbury Website", and was adopted by Glastonbury Festival as the official website for the 1999 event.[3] In 2000, eFestivals was launched to cater for multiple festivals (over 200 were listed in 2006[4]), and has been cited as bringing attention to smaller-scale festivals.[5]
