The 'Other' stage at the Glastonbury festival 2009

The Glastonbury festival has a hippy past stretching back to the 1970s when Michael Eavis decided to turn his farm in Pilton, Somerset into an enormous party. In 2009 it attracted some of the music industry’s hottest acts, but it is more than just music. Besides the anything goes ethos, there’s an agenda for change which embodies the philosophy of one of the world’s largest greenfield festivals.
