In 1970, young farmer Michael Eavis opened his farm spread over 150 acres for folk singers and 1,500 audiences so each of them can watch the performances for 1 pound during the weekend. This is the birth of the famous Glastonbury Music Festival. The next year, hippies collected money to support the event and as many as 12,500 people gathered there to watch Joan Baez and David Bowie. Later on, the Glastonbury Festival was gradually established as the best rock festival for over 30 years. Julien Temple spent a long time for preparation to present his ability with the chronicle of the rock festival.
Born in 1953, Julien Temple is an English film, documentary and music video director. He began his career with films featuring the Sex Pistols, and has continued with various off-beat projects.
