Glastonbury 2000 is a live album by English musician David Bowie. It was recorded during his Sunday night headline slot at the Glastonbury Festival on 25 June 2000. The album marks the first time the full video and audio of the performance are released, 18 years after it took place.

Background[edit]

Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis commented, "I often get asked what the best set I've seen here at Glastonbury is, and Bowie's 2000 performance is always one which I think of first. It was spellbinding; he had an absolutely enormous crowd transfixed. I think Bowie had a very deep relationship with Worthy Farm and he told some wonderful stories about his first time at the Festival in 1971, when he stayed at the farmhouse and performed at 6am as the sun was rising. And he just played the perfect headline set. It really was a very special and emotional show."

Emily's father Michael, the founder of the festival, first met Bowie at Glastonbury in 1971. He said: "He's one of the three greatest of all-time: Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and David Bowie."[1]
