About the film[edit]

Glastonbury the Movie is the second film made of the Glastonbury Festival after 1971's Glastonbury Fayre. Like the earlier film, it mixes footage of bands playing and scenes of festival goers.

The film was shot at the 1993, festival. The film is structured into telling the story of the festival day by day from the Friday through Saturday and finishing on the Sunday.

29 June 2012 saw the UK cinema release of Robin Mahoney's Glastonbury The Movie In Flashback, re-worked as new with contemporary digital cinema technology. The later film features some 45 minutes of previously unseen material, new performances including ones from Stereo MCs and The Orb and a roots-to-branch re-structuring.

In the summer of 2013 Glastonbury the Movie In Flashback was released for the first time on Download, Blu-ray as a DVD box-set with 13 hours of video and over 24 hours of audio. At the time of filming, mindful of emerging multimedia technologies the makers documented several extensions of the stories touched on in the film.
