FOOTSTEPS SQUELCHING THROUGH MUD

0:00:110:00:13

-What time is it?

-2.40am. In the morning.

0:00:220:00:27

On Thursday June 27th.

0:00:270:00:29

I've brought toothpaste instead of porn!

0:00:290:00:33

What's that all about? Got what?!

0:00:330:00:36

High-energy drink and earplugs.

0:00:360:00:38

-Earplugs for sleeping...

-Oh, right.

-..and high-energy drinks for not sleeping!

0:00:380:00:43

How we doing?

0:00:460:00:47

How are we going to fit? Am I sitting on you?

0:00:470:00:50

Oh, you wish!

0:00:500:00:53

And did those feet in ancient time

0:00:550:00:58

walk upon England's mountain green?

0:00:580:01:01

And was the holy lamb of God

0:01:010:01:03

on England's pleasant pastures seen?

0:01:030:01:06

And did the countenance divine

0:01:060:01:09

shine forth upon these clouded hills?

0:01:090:01:12

And was Jerusalem builded here

0:01:120:01:16

among these dark satanic mills?

0:01:160:01:18

# Tell me you love me

0:01:200:01:23

# It's all right... #

0:01:230:01:26

CROWD: Ohh...

0:01:260:01:29

Glastonbury.

0:01:310:01:32

Epicentre of the spirits of Albion.

0:01:340:01:38

Resting place of the Holy Grail.

0:01:380:01:40

Burial site of King Arthur,

0:01:400:01:42

the reconciler of Celt and Saxon.

0:01:420:01:44

Convergence of the power lines of the mind.

0:01:440:01:47

Jerusalem.

0:01:490:01:51

Yeah, but it's not real, is it?

0:01:510:01:53

It can't be real...can it?

0:01:530:01:55

Give it to me, Glastonbury!

0:01:550:01:58

We want it hardcore. Bring it on! Come o-o-o-o-on!

0:01:580:02:02

From prehistoric times, when it was truly an island

0:02:020:02:06

in the floods and marshes surrounding it,

0:02:060:02:08

Glastonbury has been a place of refuge or pilgrimage

0:02:080:02:11

for saints, mystics and holy men.

0:02:110:02:14

Many of them settled there as hermits, finally adding their bones

0:02:140:02:18

to the collection of sacred relics.

0:02:180:02:21

Glastonbury is built on a legend, the most remarkable in Christendom.

0:02:210:02:25

According to the sacred histories of England,

0:02:250:02:28

it was shortly after the Crucifixion

0:02:280:02:31

that Saint Joseph of Arimathea first appeared in Glastonbury.

0:02:310:02:35

He had been to England before,

0:02:350:02:37

to Cornwall during his days as a tin trader,

0:02:370:02:40

and it's claimed in West Country folklore that, on one occasion,

0:02:400:02:45

he brought with him his nephew, Jesus Christ.

0:02:450:02:48

There are even legends which state

0:02:480:02:50

that Jesus himself visited Glastonbury.

0:02:500:02:54

ALL: Hey!

0:02:540:02:56

We're off to Glastonbury!

0:02:560:02:58

# Stop that train

0:03:030:03:05

# I wanna get on

0:03:050:03:08

# My baby, she's leaving me now

0:03:080:03:12

# Stop that train

0:03:150:03:17

# I wanna get on

0:03:170:03:19

# My baby, she's leaving me now... #

0:03:190:03:23

He hasn't got a ticket.

0:03:230:03:27

It's no problem, I'm just gonna jump over.

0:03:270:03:30

THEY LAUGH

0:03:300:03:31

# ..Sha la la la la la la la la la la la

0:03:310:03:35

# Ooh, yeah

0:03:350:03:37

# Sha la la la la la la la la la la la...

0:03:370:03:41

# Sha la la la la la la la la la la la... #

0:03:420:03:46

-There it is over there. See?

-It's not that far, is it?

0:03:460:03:50

Can you follow the blue Transit?

0:04:030:04:05

# ..Stop that train I wanna get on... #

0:04:050:04:07

GIRL SINGS

0:04:140:04:17

INTRO TO: "All Tomorrow's Parties"

0:04:270:04:31

# And what costume shall the poor girl wear

0:04:390:04:43

# To all tomorrow's parties?

0:04:480:04:52

# A hand-me-down dress from who knows where

0:04:550:05:00

# To all tomorrow's parties

0:05:030:05:09

# And where will she go What shall she do

0:05:110:05:17

# When midnight comes around?

0:05:170:05:22

# She'll turn once more to Sunday's clown

0:05:240:05:29

# And cry behind the door... #

0:05:320:05:37

What do you do in your daily life?

0:05:540:05:57

I work for an insurance company!

0:05:570:05:59

-So you come here to do what that's different from that?

-Er, be me.

0:05:590:06:03

Be really me. Cos my job's a bit mundane, desk bound, not real.

0:06:030:06:08

Sunglasses. Very important. Mobile phone. Very important.

0:06:110:06:15

Camera. Very important.

0:06:150:06:17

A little bit of something to keep me going. That's all.

0:06:170:06:20

Luxury.

0:06:200:06:21

Do you tend to get lucky at Glastonbury?

0:06:210:06:24

No. I avoid it, actually at Glastonbury,

0:06:240:06:27

because there's more interesting things to be doing.

0:06:270:06:30

It's windy, isn't it?

0:06:350:06:37

It is very windy.

0:06:370:06:38

COWS MOO

0:06:400:06:42

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:06:440:06:47

Go on then, I'll make you famous.

0:06:500:06:53

GROUP SINGS

0:07:150:07:20

SHE ULULATES

0:07:380:07:39

APPLAUSE

0:08:200:08:22

It's a huge job, actually, getting a...

0:08:240:08:27

-How are you getting on?

-Good show.

-How are you getting on?

-All right.

0:08:270:08:31

Have you been before?

0:08:310:08:33

-Of course we have. This is my tenth time.

-Oh, well done.

0:08:330:08:36

-What about you, have you been before?

-Yeah, I've been around a few years.

-All right, innit?

0:08:360:08:40

-It's a bit overrated, innit?

-Quite a lot of hippies.

0:08:400:08:43

Overrated, yeah - that's probably true!

0:08:430:08:45

-We're lovely Essex boys and...

-We're normal.

0:08:450:08:48

We're going back to Woodstock days.

0:08:480:08:50

We're going for that feeling.

0:08:500:08:53

Everyone - the love feeling, sugar.

0:08:530:08:56

In the days before supermarkets, when they used to deliver bread,

0:08:560:09:00

this baker lady came and said, "Have you seen those funny people?"

0:09:000:09:04

I said, "What's wrong with them?" She said, "They call them hippies."

0:09:040:09:07

I said, "Really? What do they look like?"

0:09:070:09:10

THEY SING

0:09:100:09:14

We've heard so much about the place, because the vibes and the land around here...

0:09:160:09:21

are very nice and peaceful.

0:09:210:09:23

-The what?

-The vibes. The vibrations from the ground.

0:09:230:09:25

I went to the blues festival at the showground in 1970,

0:09:250:09:31

I didn't see a fence anywhere.

0:09:310:09:33

So I fell in love with the whole idea of it.

0:09:330:09:36

All these lovely people, lovely music, lovely weather, lovely fields... Can't go wrong.

0:09:360:09:41

T-REX: # Wear a tall hat like a druid in the old days

0:09:410:09:44

# Wear a tall hat and a tattooed gown

0:09:440:09:48

# Ride a white swan like the people of the Beltane

0:09:480:09:51

# Wear your hair long, babe you can't go wrong... #

0:09:510:09:54

-You look very comfortable on your superloo. Can I join you?

-Certainly.

0:09:580:10:02

Ah, that's better.

0:10:020:10:03

It seems, I think, to many people slightly incongruous

0:10:030:10:08

to site a festival here in the heart of a very quiet peaceful countryside.

0:10:080:10:11

It's a super place for it,

0:10:110:10:13

it's absolutely ideal. It's a kind of euphoria down here,

0:10:130:10:16

it's away from the awful realities of life. It's a nice place.

0:10:160:10:20

The Vale of Avalon and Glastonbury and all the mystique surrounding it. It's a nice place for it.

0:10:200:10:26

You make it sound very romantic, but surely hard cash is really the...

0:10:260:10:30

-the object of the exercise.

-Well, the farm is such a dead loss,

0:10:300:10:34

we've got to look to other ways of making money.

0:10:340:10:36

What is the one thing that's worrying you more than anything else at this moment?

0:10:530:10:58

How many I'm going to get here.

0:11:000:11:02

And how many gatecrashers I'm gonna get.

0:11:020:11:04

CROWD CHEERS

0:11:040:11:07

My mate's band was not cut, he pulled it off his hand.

0:11:110:11:14

-It's stretched.

-He pulled it off his hand!

0:11:140:11:16

# Take a little walk to the edge of town

0:11:220:11:26

# And go across the tracks

0:11:260:11:28

# Where the viaduct looms like a bird of doom

0:11:300:11:34

# As it shifts and cracks

0:11:340:11:38

# Where secrets lie in the border fires

0:11:380:11:44

# In the humming wires

0:11:440:11:45

# Hey, man, you know you're never coming back

0:11:450:11:49

# Past the bridge and the gulley

0:11:490:11:51

# By the river, at the stacks

0:11:510:11:53

# On a gathering storm comes a tall handsome man

0:11:550:12:00

# In a dusty black coat with a red right hand

0:12:000:12:04

# You'll see him in your head On the TV screen... #

0:12:310:12:35

This is not funny, you know, this is not the time to be taking wedding photos!

0:12:350:12:40

# ..He's a ghost, he's a god He's a man, he's a guru

0:12:400:12:46

# You're one microscopic cog in his catastrophic plan

0:12:480:12:53

# Designed and directed by his red right hand... #

0:12:530:12:57

Everybody go home, the wedding's off!

0:12:570:13:00

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Thank you.

0:13:070:13:10

COWS MOO

0:13:100:13:12

It was a success musically.

0:13:140:13:15

It was super. It was a lovely day. But it was a loss financially.

0:13:150:13:18

-I lost a bit of money.

-Would you do it again?

0:13:180:13:21

I don't know. I haven't got courage enough at the moment.

0:13:210:13:25

I think it's great. Shouldn't end. Never end.

0:13:250:13:27

-You want it to go on for ever?

-Yeah. For a million years.

0:13:270:13:30

PEOPLE BLEAT

0:13:300:13:34

I wasn't really the best of farmers, to be honest.

0:13:340:13:37

He was always keen on music. As a family, we were always keen on music.

0:13:370:13:41

We used to sing around the piano. Mostly hymns.

0:13:410:13:44

That was our entertainment.

0:13:440:13:46

Yeah. There is a nonconformist tradition in the West Country that we're the centre of.

0:13:460:13:52

I've got a lot of uncles that were Methodist ministers and things.

0:13:520:13:58

And my father was a preacher.

0:13:580:14:00

PA: 'Please do not piss in the ditches.'

0:14:000:14:04

'Or in the hedges.'

0:14:040:14:06

'It might be all right for one person to do it,

0:14:060:14:09

'but when you've got thousands of people,

0:14:090:14:12

'it all gets into the drainage and pollutes the water courses around Glastonbury.

0:14:120:14:18

'And it's one of the conditions of getting a licence next year

0:14:180:14:23

'that we sort it out.

0:14:230:14:25

'So if you could all, please, use the toilet facilities provided,

0:14:250:14:29

'then there'll be a Glastonbury next year!'

0:14:290:14:32

COCK CROWS

0:14:460:14:48

The newcomers that actually came to the village said, "What are the Eavises like?"

0:14:480:14:53

"They're very, very clever, but they've got no respect for the law."

0:14:530:14:57

THEY LAUGH

0:14:570:14:58

That was extraordinary. I was looking at my licensing record.

0:15:020:15:05

THEY CONTINUE LAUGHING

0:15:050:15:08

We were weaned on all that rather left-wing, sort of liberal stuff

0:15:080:15:13

about war and about people's liberty.

0:15:130:15:16

That's all part of the Methodist background that I've had.

0:15:160:15:19

PEOPLE LAUGH

0:15:190:15:21

When I saw people protesting about the Vietnam war,

0:15:260:15:29

and what with the music and Woodstock as well,

0:15:290:15:32

it all suited me absolutely perfectly.

0:15:320:15:34

But the second festival was the Pyramid Festival in '71,

0:15:340:15:38

and it was a free festival.

0:15:380:15:40

The hippies did that one on their own.

0:15:400:15:42

-It was a chap called Andrew Kerr.

-You see, we can't tell

0:15:420:15:46

what good will come out of it

0:15:460:15:49

until we've tried.

0:15:490:15:51

Andrew worked for Randolph Churchill

0:15:560:15:59

and Arabella, Winston Churchill's granddaughter, turned up as well.

0:15:590:16:03

She was 21 and she had recently come into some money,

0:16:030:16:06

so between them they made it happen, basically.

0:16:060:16:10

LYRICS INDISTINCT

0:16:140:16:20

And it was all to do with falling in love,

0:16:550:16:59

and you know, loving life, and all that sort of thing,

0:16:590:17:02

and children and...

0:17:020:17:05

There was all love attached to it, a lot of feeling about it.

0:17:080:17:11

It's romantic and it's beautiful and...

0:17:110:17:16

Though to the hippies,

0:17:170:17:19

the Glastonbury Fair has been a time of peace and happiness to everyone,

0:17:190:17:23

there have been certain aspects of it

0:17:230:17:25

that have disturbed what they call, "the straight society."

0:17:250:17:28

That's just about everyone but themselves.

0:17:280:17:31

Aspects such as the free lovemaking,

0:17:310:17:33

the fertility rites, the naked dancing,

0:17:330:17:35

and, most of all,

0:17:350:17:37

the drug taking. Somerset County Police drug squad

0:17:370:17:40

have been mingling with the hippies at the Festival.

0:17:400:17:43

Others have been watching what's going on through binoculars.

0:17:430:17:46

At times, it was a bit scary, cos they're all on drugs and things.

0:17:490:17:53

And it was very acidy in those days, a lot of acid around.

0:17:530:17:57

I really enjoyed the whole festival concept,

0:18:010:18:04

the politics of it, the mood of it and everything.

0:18:040:18:07

But the drugs didn't really enter into it for me,

0:18:070:18:10

because, in a funny kind of way, we were quite puritanical.

0:18:100:18:14

We don't drink much and we get more pleasure from working than you do from partying.

0:18:140:18:20

# This is what it's all about

0:18:240:18:27

# Take me in and eat me out

0:18:280:18:31

# Pins and needles in my arms

0:18:310:18:34

# Lucky eyes and lucky charms

0:18:340:18:38

# Fearless, fearless, oh

0:18:380:18:42

# And I know that's why you love me

0:18:420:18:45

# Fearless, fearless, come on

0:18:450:18:50

# And I know that's why you love me

0:18:500:18:52

# Fearless, fearless, whoa

0:18:520:18:55

# And I know that's why you love me, chica

0:18:570:19:01

# And I know that's why you love me, chica

0:19:010:19:03

# Oh, that's why you love me, chica

0:19:030:19:08

# Oh...

0:19:080:19:10

# Oh, fearless. #

0:19:200:19:23

CHEERING

0:19:310:19:33

Please remove yourselves from those steps. Listen,

0:19:390:19:44

I was born in Glastonbury.

0:19:440:19:46

It means a lot to me.

0:19:460:19:48

You... You're just abusing all the things that Glastonians stand for.

0:19:480:19:53

I came to Glastonbury because it's a spiritual centre.

0:20:020:20:05

Because Christ came here as a child.

0:20:050:20:08

Because the Holy Grail is buried here.

0:20:080:20:11

-And because...it's Glastonbury.

-I feel that it's a perfect disgrace.

0:20:110:20:15

I object to the filth and flies that have been left about our hedgerows.

0:20:150:20:19

A number of them do - and I mean do - smell to high heaven.

0:20:190:20:23

It's not just a slight question of BO, it's really evil smelling in some cases.

0:20:230:20:29

Somebody has to make a stand against these very dirty, very unwashed people.

0:20:290:20:34

I'm not saying they're all dirty and all unwashed.

0:20:340:20:37

But they do give a lot of offence.

0:20:370:20:39

People have come here for various reasons for many, many centuries.

0:20:390:20:44

I do get concerned that a minority group like this,

0:20:440:20:48

which would really like to make their home here,

0:20:480:20:52

being hounded by a section of the community out of the town.

0:20:520:20:55

Will you be going to the festival?

0:20:550:20:58

I don't know yet. I might.

0:20:580:21:00

Yeah, I'm going with a Tommy gun.

0:21:000:21:01

Why is that?

0:21:010:21:03

Ha!

0:21:030:21:05

How do you feel about the festival?

0:21:050:21:07

No comment.

0:21:070:21:09

# You have never been in love

0:21:160:21:20

# Until you've seen the stars

0:21:200:21:25

# Reflect in the reservoirs

0:21:250:21:29

# And you have never been in love

0:21:300:21:34

# And the first to do time

0:22:400:22:42

CROWD: Peace to the East.

0:22:420:22:44

Let there be peace to the South.

0:22:440:22:46

CROWD: Let there be peace to the South...

0:22:460:22:49

Let there be peace to the West.

0:22:490:22:51

CROWD: Let there be peace to the West.

0:22:510:22:53

-It's so weird...!

-THEY GIGGLE

0:22:530:22:55

We'll get back to you at a later date.

0:22:590:23:01

At Glastonbury, we have the tepee field.

0:23:240:23:26

It enables people to realise perhaps that what makes people happy in life

0:23:260:23:32

isn't the level of material consumption that they can enjoy,

0:23:320:23:36

but actually, a closeness to nature and a wealth of human relationships around them.

0:23:360:23:41

The ethos that goes with tepee living is really the...

0:23:430:23:47

North American Indian ethos that you live lightly on the earth.

0:23:470:23:51

What Gandhi said, "There's enough for everyone's need, but not for everyone's greed."

0:23:510:23:55

I don't think it's a hard lifestyle.

0:24:010:24:04

It's not as hard as going to work at a job you don't like

0:24:040:24:08

for 40 years to pay a mortgage on a house.

0:24:080:24:10

It involves hard work every day if you're going to keep it together.

0:24:120:24:17

Nothing is as simple as flicking a switch and...

0:24:190:24:22

you've got instant energy and power.

0:24:220:24:24

But that's the problem with our society

0:24:240:24:27

and it's overhunger for energy that's driving the world into climate change and running out of resources.

0:24:270:24:34

Living in a tepee, you're very much more in touch with nature

0:24:360:24:40

all the way around.

0:24:400:24:42

At least you're aware of it.

0:24:500:24:51

You're not shut off from it inside a box,

0:24:510:24:54

looking at a box in the corner of a box.

0:24:540:24:56

Here we all are, but we know that there are other beings, you know,

0:25:060:25:10

in helicopters, police, etc, etc, who don't share

0:25:100:25:14

our sense that we just want to be with one another

0:25:140:25:17

and just evolve in a slowly feedback system.

0:25:170:25:20

So, I think that the festival is actually an interface between...

0:25:200:25:25

a loving vibe and a resentful one.

0:25:250:25:29

Hey? What, the watchtowers?

0:25:290:25:31

This is basically, the Glastonbury fence.

0:25:310:25:35

More security down here.

0:25:370:25:39

0:25:390:25:41

-Did you see them?

0:42:160:42:20

-Did you see them do it?

-Our real breakthrough

0:42:200:42:22

was when Maggie Thatcher came to power in 1979,

0:42:220:42:25

because there was a huge backlash to Thatcherism. The only opportunity people had to express themselves

0:42:250:42:31

was here. So, they came here in thousands.

0:42:310:42:34

And we went, "Maggie out!" You know, "Maggie, out, out, out! Maggie out!"

0:42:340:42:38

When little Emily was a baby, she said, "Are we gonna go on a Maggie out today?"

0:42:380:42:43

You know, she thought that that was a way of enjoying yourself.

0:42:430:42:47

-So...

-HE LAUGHS

0:42:470:42:49

But we were anti-Polaris and anti-cruise at the time.

0:42:490:42:52

So, I put her on my back

0:42:520:42:53

-and we'd go marching.

-# How does it feel

0:42:530:42:58

# To treat me like you do?

# When you've laid your hands upon me

-I remember, one of the first times I came,

in the Crusades, with its tents all over the fields.

a nation of theatre and musicians,

Bad protesting background, we've always moaned about everything.

0:45:470:45:50

And here we are, moaning like mad now.

0:45:500:45:54

I mean, Greenpeace, you know, Oxfam, WaterAid,

0:45:540:45:58

and all the left stuff. We've got a Left Field stage.

0:45:580:46:01

We had Billy Bragg whingeing on all last night.

0:46:010:46:03

# ..Axis of evil by putting smart bombs

0:46:060:46:10

And we've got Wedgie Benn this afternoon.

0:46:100:46:13

If there is anybody here from New Labour,

0:46:130:46:17

your money will be refunded if you leave quietly...

0:46:170:46:21

CHEERING

0:46:210:46:24

Is that music out there or in my head?

0:47:120:47:14

In the old hippy days,

0:47:190:47:21

it was all love and peace, flower power and bells and things,

0:47:210:47:25

and mystics and cosmics. But now, it's more politically orientated

0:47:250:47:29

as it's CND. It hasn't changed a lot. The hippies have had their hair cut

0:47:290:47:33

and they've got kids now, who are here and in the play area. It's the same sort of people,

0:47:330:47:37

but they've tidied themselves up a bit, I think.

0:47:370:47:41

# You bum right here and you bounce over there, sponji reggae. Eh!

0:47:480:47:55

# Bum right here and you bounce over there, sponji reggae

0:47:550:47:59

# I say you punch right here and you punch over there, sponji reggae... #

0:48:000:48:05

Peace. Freedom. Conservative Party literature...

0:48:050:48:09

of an anarchist nature.

0:48:090:48:11

How do you get to the Falkland Islands?

0:48:120:48:14

# ..Some say I am nuts, zooky crazy!

0:48:140:48:18

# Want I to leave the music alone

0:48:190:48:24

# They say, go and look work I and I are lazy... #

0:48:240:48:29

I think the numbers came before we were ready for them, really,

0:48:290:48:33

because it was growing so quickly.

0:48:330:48:35

In 1981, it was nice, with about 20,000 people.

0:48:350:48:38

But it was virtually doubling every time we did it. And of course, the council criticised me,

0:48:380:48:43

and then took me to court every year and I was prosecuted. It was the cat and mouse thing throughout the '80s.

0:48:430:48:48

Me versus the council.

0:48:480:48:51

It's a breach of his conditions for his music licence. Capacity crowd of 35,000,

0:48:510:48:57

he's well over that, so in my opinion, we wouldn't be doing our duty

0:48:570:49:01

if we didn't prosecute him for that offence.

0:49:010:49:03

We're very pleased that it's so successful. But, er...

0:49:030:49:07

You can't really criticise us for doing something well.

0:49:070:49:10

I can't see how we're ever going to stop it. I mean,

0:49:120:49:16

if we refuse to give an entertainments' licence,

0:49:160:49:19

they can still come along and sit down. Providing they don't have any licence. He can have 100,000,

0:49:190:49:24

and in no way could we do anything about it.

0:49:240:49:26

MONGOLIAN THROAT SINGING

0:50:040:50:09

The guy with the wee beard - Michael Eavis is punk,

0:50:090:50:11

because he went like that... "I'm gonnae organise something

0:50:110:50:15

"that somebody doesnae want me to organise."

0:50:150:50:18

Inner city!

0:50:440:50:46

CHEERING

0:50:470:50:50

The police don't come on site but they're very helpful off site

0:51:100:51:14

with traffic and things, but we never have them on site.

0:51:140:51:17

If people are having a good time, you haven't got any fences much,

0:51:170:51:20

people do what they want to do.

0:51:200:51:22

They're free to rove around, and that's why we don't get the problems.

0:51:220:51:26

People are being strip-searched.

0:51:260:51:29

We're complaining about police harassment, in a peaceful way.

0:51:290:51:32

There's one Festival organiser who's been stopped 16 times in his car.

0:51:320:51:37

-It's got beyond a joke.

-It will be the first time they've been able to get off this bloody site

0:51:370:51:43

without first visiting the police station.

0:51:430:51:46

We've been getting hassle off the police just coming in and out to get supplies.

0:51:460:51:50

People are being busted for no reason. This Sus law is really bad.

0:51:500:51:53

It's blacks who are usually picked on, but now they're picking on whites as well and we don't like it.

0:51:530:51:58

Ooooh! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

0:51:580:52:03

Ooh-ha-ha! Ooh-ha-ha-ha! Ooh!

0:52:030:52:06

SQUAWK! SQUAWK! SQUAWK!

0:52:110:52:13

-Oh, it's teeming today.

-SQUAWK!

0:52:130:52:16

-CHEERING

-Bloody hell!

0:52:350:52:39

120 people yesterday.

0:52:410:52:44

That's what we caught in two hours last night.

0:52:440:52:48

It's better if you use a thick line, cos some of them are 200 pounds.

0:52:480:52:52

You keep your eye out.

0:52:520:52:53

-Put your cap down over the corner of your eye, look dead sly-eyed.

-This is all we've done for four days!

0:52:530:52:59

Eh!

0:52:590:53:01

He's only literally nearly cut me finger off!

0:53:010:53:05

Yeah, I thought I might be able to get some drugs.

0:53:050:53:08

The funny thing is, this event would not have succeeded if I'd been on drugs.

0:53:080:53:12

I really haven't got any sympathy with drug-taking at all.

0:53:140:53:17

I spent the last hour going round with our own drugs squad,

0:53:170:53:21

taking down signs, confiscating... I've got a boot full of stuff.

0:53:210:53:25

And we're doing that all the time.

0:53:250:53:28

I could get put away for the drugs I've got in the boot of my car.

0:53:280:53:32

But I'm going to, obviously, dispose of it!

0:53:320:53:35

HE LAUGHS

0:53:350:53:37

How do you feel about the fact that so many people who come to the festival do take drugs?

0:53:370:53:41

I don't know whether they do or not. I'm sure there are a lot of people...

0:53:410:53:45

..that do still, I suppose. Do you think so?

0:53:470:53:49

She was over there with it though.

0:53:490:53:51

She went over that way with it.

0:53:510:53:54

# So you wanna be a rock superstar And live large

0:55:080:55:12

Tea's up!

0:55:120:55:13

-Nice cup of tea, dear?

-Thank you.

0:55:140:55:16

NEIGHING

0:55:160:55:20

Come on in.

0:55:200:55:21

CHILD MUMBLES

0:55:240:55:29

Is this going to be called Worthyhenge?

0:55:440:55:46

No, it's not a henge at all, it's a stone circle.

0:55:460:55:49

-Right.

-Stonehenge has got bits on the top.

0:55:490:55:53

Stonehenge was a spiritual centre

0:56:010:56:03

and it was a political claim of, "This is the people's land."

0:56:030:56:07

Bought and left for the people hundreds of years ago,

0:56:070:56:10

let alone built by the people thousands of years ago.

0:56:100:56:14

During the years when Stonehenge and Glastonbury were running at the same time,

0:56:160:56:21

there was a kind of rivalry between the two.

0:56:210:56:23

The poorer people, the riffraff, the ones with the dogs, big trucks and so on tended to go to Stonehenge,

0:56:230:56:29

which was free. And in a way, that worked very well for Michael.

0:56:290:56:32

CHEERING

0:56:480:56:53

There was a big change in 1980.

0:56:530:56:55

The travellers were having a very hard time in society.

0:56:570:57:00

There were lots more of them, because there were lots more homeless and jobless people.

0:57:000:57:06

It was the sensible ones who chose to live in the back of a truck,

0:57:060:57:10

rather than living in a cardboard box under a bridge in London.

0:57:100:57:14

The whole counter-culture was seen by the Thatcherites

0:57:150:57:19

as part of Maggie's enemy within.

0:57:190:57:21

Just like the miners, just like the peace movement,

0:57:210:57:24

and there was a lot of overlap.

0:57:240:57:27

# I said I see no joy I see only sorrow

0:57:270:57:29

# I see no chance of your bright new tomorrow

0:57:290:57:32

# So, stand down, Margaret Stand down please

0:57:320:57:35

# Stand down, Margaret... #

0:57:350:57:37

In '82, a convoy from Stonehenge went off to Greenham Common.

0:57:370:57:43

# ..You tell me how can it work in this all-white law?

0:57:430:57:46

# What a short sharp lesson What a third world war

0:57:460:57:49

# Oh, stand down, Margaret Stand down, please

0:57:490:57:52

# Stand down, Margaret... #

0:57:520:57:54

There was a few hundred yards of fencing that got knocked down.

0:57:540:57:57

The authorities didn't like that.

0:57:570:57:59

And it was those same people

0:57:590:58:01

who provided the nucleus of the convoy

0:58:010:58:04

that was duffed over by the police at Stonehenge beanfield in 1985.

0:58:040:58:08

-SCREAMING

-My kid's in here!

0:58:100:58:13

VIA LOUDSPEAKER: You have no escape!

0:58:130:58:16

SHOUTING

0:58:160:58:18

-Agh! Get off me!

-Go away! Go away!

0:58:180:58:24

Now you stay there, boy!

0:58:290:58:31

WOMAN SCREAMS On the deck, on the deck!

0:58:330:58:36

On the deck!

0:58:360:58:37

SHE SCREAMS

0:58:370:58:39

-NO!

-Don't argue!

0:58:390:58:41

They smashed my windows, they hit me on the head with truncheons!

0:58:470:58:51

They hit me when I was on the floor!

0:58:510:58:53

See what they're doing to us?!

0:58:530:58:55

When we had to leave Stonehenge, we didn't have anywhere to go.

0:58:590:59:03

We managed to get down as far as Glastonbury,

0:59:030:59:06

and we had such trouble with the police and the authorities

0:59:060:59:09

that we ended up opening a gate at the top corner of Michael's

0:59:090:59:12

and going and seeing him and saying, "We're really in a difficult situation here,

0:59:120:59:17

"is it all right if we stay for a few days?"

0:59:170:59:19

And bless him, he said, "Yes, OK, you can stay." So...

0:59:190:59:23

in ways that people wouldn't know about,

0:59:230:59:26

he's shown his heart and given, you know?

0:59:260:59:31

And he needn't have done at all.

0:59:310:59:33

I gave them space and we gave them food and we gave them blankets and things.

0:59:330:59:39

It was like a refugee status for those people, really.

0:59:390:59:42

The council said we had to get rid of all of the adults

0:59:430:59:46

that were not women and children. So we had to stage an exodus

0:59:460:59:50

for all these blokes to actually leave the site.

0:59:500:59:53

Bye!

0:59:530:59:55

They went down to the Somerset coast

0:59:550:59:57

and they all came back in small little groups, so that they thought they'd gone,

0:59:571:00:01

-but they all came back again.

-CHEERING

1:00:011:00:04

They were the fathers of the children,

1:00:041:00:06

so they had to be together, basically.

1:00:061:00:08

We were playing all sorts of games with the authorities

1:00:081:00:11

to make the festival succeed.

1:00:111:00:13

MUSIC: Intro to "Laura" by Scissor Sisters

1:00:131:00:20

# Laura, can't you give me some time

INSTRUMENTAL

1:01:331:01:35

-Is your name Brian?

-It's not Brian, mate, no. It's not Brian!

1:01:451:01:50

We want to party!

1:01:501:01:52

Really. We want to be. We don't want to have to justify who, what we are,

1:01:521:01:57

just to please everybody else and say the nice thing

1:01:571:01:59

and suck up to people's egos because your face fits,

1:01:591:02:02

we don't want none of that.

1:02:021:02:04

We want equality, freedom, we want to be what we are.

1:02:041:02:07

End of story.

1:02:071:02:09

"Mutate or die."

1:02:101:02:12

Yeah.

1:02:121:02:14

-# ..This is my integration... #

-It's 20 years

1:02:181:02:22

since we first came to Glastonbury. We thought, "If we can't go to Stonehenge, we can build it

1:02:221:02:27

-"somewhere else." So, we built Stonehenge out of old cars.

-# ..Just to feel your...

1:02:271:02:31

# Vibration

1:02:311:02:33

# Gonna have a soul shakedown party... #

1:02:331:02:37

Michael had allowed all the travellers in the back door, but he knew what he was doing.

1:02:371:02:42

# ..Ah, ooh-ooh-ooh Doing the outside dance

1:02:421:02:46

# The way you love me

1:02:481:02:49

# It's all right... #

1:02:511:02:52

We had this mad drumming marathon on the Saturday night - the solstice night.

1:02:521:02:56

Thousands of people came and drummed right through the night, into the dawn,

1:02:561:03:02

like a mad zombie beat that wouldn't be stopped.

1:03:021:03:05

HEAVY DRUMMING AND CHEERING

1:03:051:03:09

It gave all us travelling people a pride in ourselves that we were doing

1:03:191:03:23

the most lively thing in the Festival.

1:03:231:03:25

Woo! Eavis! Eavis! Eavis!

1:03:251:03:29

COWS MOO

1:03:311:03:37

Morning.

1:03:431:03:44

-This is our finale, isn't it?

-You're really, really bad news.

-You say we're bad news, we're good news,

1:03:531:03:59

-we had good reports...

-You're so fuckin' unreliable! All the work I've been doing for you.

1:03:591:04:04

You invited yourselves here, I gave you 19 tickets to come on,

1:04:041:04:08

-I said we'd look after you...

-We gave you the best show you've had for years.

-..We'd look after you...

1:04:081:04:13

-We gave you the only show that isn't...

-..We fed you for six weeks in real style,

1:04:131:04:17

-we looked after you and offered you £500 as well.

-I don't care.

1:04:171:04:20

All we want is our money and a tenner in our pockets each for the work that we've put in.

1:04:201:04:25

We spent more than we're getting now just getting here.

1:04:251:04:28

-I don't know what you expected...

-We expected not to be out of pocket.

1:04:281:04:32

I've been running this show for 17 years and I've been fair and reasonable in all that time.

1:04:321:04:36

If I hadn't, I wouldn't be here now. I'd have been cut to pieces by now.

1:04:361:04:40

Would I have survived for 17 years if I'd been a cunt?

1:04:401:04:43

-Then why...

-Depends what your margin is.

-Ridiculous!

1:04:431:04:46

Depends what your margin is.

1:04:461:04:48

At the end of the day, Michael's a farmer, and farmers can be notoriously tight, you know?

1:04:481:04:53

We thought that he should have paid us a bit better and he thought that he'd paid us enough.

1:04:531:04:58

But we didn't have any guns, did we?

1:04:581:05:00

-I was sure you had that toy gun, plastic gun.

-No.

1:05:001:05:04

-Where did I get that from?

-I don't know.

-Maybe it was someone else.

1:05:041:05:09

I'm not ashamed of anything I do.

1:05:091:05:12

I mean, it's just so petty, it really is.

1:05:121:05:15

When you've made a million pounds, or half a million pounds,

-You've all worked hard!

-Cheers, mate.

1:05:371:05:42

A tenner each. One for that baby, there we are.

1:05:421:05:45

-I've paid you real money this time.

-HE LAUGHS

'It's the first time the police have actually been invited onto the festival site by the organisers.'

1:07:191:07:25

Light refreshment!

1:07:281:07:29

'The helicopter is being used in the operation for the first time,

1:07:301:07:34

'but some at the Festival say the police have been heavy-handed.'

1:07:341:07:38

Police have come blaring out of vans and stuff like that at people.

1:07:381:07:42

It's not the polite attitude for a festival.

1:07:421:07:46

There's a certain amount of good-natured banter

1:07:461:07:49

between the police and the site people there.

1:07:491:07:53

He doesn't even know what's going on! And he wants to... But I'm here in the situation...

1:07:531:07:59

You know what I mean?

1:07:591:08:00

-You wouldn't last a second where I come from!

-That's what he did to me wrists with the handcuffs...

1:08:001:08:05

Wrongful arrest. Searched me, didn't find nothing.

1:08:051:08:08

# Trying to mash a Rasta man's life Antichrist, doing it's not nice

1:08:081:08:14

# Trying to mash... #

1:08:141:08:15

Don't do that or you'll get fuckin' arrested!

1:08:151:08:21

Ladies and gentlemen, the masonic handshake!

1:08:291:08:34

And the travellers' culture was very attractive.

1:08:441:08:48

There's that slightly dangerous, anarchistic element that...

1:08:481:08:52

there's a bit of the Middle Ages about it.

1:08:521:08:54

And a bit of the English freedom thing, struggling against authority

1:08:541:08:59

and against control and government and police and things.

1:08:591:09:03

There's sort of, quite an attractive edge to that.

1:09:031:09:05

FOLK MUSIC

1:09:051:09:11

By 1990, the travellers were getting quite nasty to each other.

1:09:141:09:18

They were fighting over drugs and girlfriends and that sort of thing.

1:09:181:09:22

We did get serious problems with that.

1:09:221:09:25

The security people were quite corrupt themselves and they were confiscating drugs

1:09:281:09:32

from the travellers. They were selling them on.

1:09:321:09:35

We tried to separate the two sites, and it didn't really work.

1:09:371:09:40

Then the riot in 1990 was really, really unpleasant.

1:09:421:09:47

SHOUTING

1:09:471:09:50

They were throwing Molotov cocktails

1:09:501:09:53

at the security. Then the police came along with riot shields.

1:09:531:09:57

There was £50,000-worth of damage and they burnt five Land Rovers,

1:10:061:10:10

and they just overran the whole place and they created anarchy.

1:10:101:10:14

There was hatred and bitterness and resent.

1:10:141:10:16

Burn Eavis's barn down!

1:10:161:10:19

I took them on for five years after Stonehenge had closed down.

1:10:191:10:22

We gave them a site, we gave them water,

1:10:221:10:24

we did everything for them, and we totally failed at the end of the day.

1:10:241:10:28

I decided, in 1990, that that was the end of the convoy.

1:10:301:10:34

This place, here, is getting as bad as Stonehenge,

1:10:341:10:37

-and it should not be allowed to happen.

-The fact is, what you wanna do,

1:10:371:10:40

is go on the Pilton site. Mr Eavis says you're not going on.

1:10:401:10:43

-Where do we go then?

-We need somewhere to go.

1:10:431:10:47

There are places you can go all round the country.

1:10:471:10:50

-I think they would like to know there was somewhere that they could go to.

-Mmm. There isn't.

1:10:501:10:55

I'm not giving up now.

1:10:551:10:56

I've got this far, I'm gonna get in there one way or the other.

1:10:561:10:59

-PA:

-There's no travellers here this year, cos no fucker would let them in.

1:10:591:11:04

This song is dedicated to all the people that couldn't get in for some fuckin' stupid reason!

As far as I'm concerned, he's off. I'll ring Michael right now.

-Hang on.

-I'm having him off.

I'm sorry, Rollo. I'm sorry, Rollo...

1:15:571:16:00

He's booked to give a performance tomorrow.

1:16:001:16:04

I know it upsets you, but he is going to stay on this site.

1:16:041:16:08

-If you'd like to move somewhere else, we find you somewhere else to go.

-Uh...no!

1:16:081:16:13

-It doesn't work that way. I'm sorry.

-I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

1:16:131:16:16

What is happening is, he's upsetting people with children.

Glastonbury have done a good job on keeping people out this year.

1:32:471:32:51

There's no rebels here this year, the fence has been good.

1:32:511:32:55

Everything's been sorted right.

1:32:551:32:57

Police have been doing the right thing. Everything's been sorted right out.

and...led me through here.

1:34:551:34:58

And, uh, we looked at the fire and...

1:34:591:35:02

-But that fire was amazing.

-Oh, it was very amazing!

1:35:021:35:05

That is another piece of the same fire.

1:35:051:35:09

Fucking amazing, man.

1:35:091:35:11

-Splendid.

-It's the middle of the day and... The morning was just brilliant.

It wasn't until '86 that the fence went right the way around the site.

1:38:291:38:33

And the chap that insisted on that, a councillor, got an MBE for it.

1:38:331:38:38

So he got a lovely award.

1:38:381:38:41

Loads of kids came through the fence, underneath, over the fence,

1:38:461:38:49

and they were city kids that had a lot going for them. It was kinda dangerous

1:38:491:38:53

but it had a kinda vibrant feel to it, it was really fantastically... so exciting!

1:39:441:39:47

We're getting better at it. We're using horses now

1:40:251:40:28

in what we call the moat between the two fences.

1:40:281:40:31

We've got galloping horses, and it does tend to put people off jumping through

1:40:311:40:36

when they see horses running by.

1:40:361:40:39

CROWD CHEERS Come on, it's Rolf.

1:40:391:40:42

-We gotta go?

-Gotta go. See Rolfie baby.

1:40:421:40:46

The main problem, the year 2000, it was, was when the fence came down on a large scale,

1:40:461:40:51

we had 300,000 people in here.

1:40:511:40:55

CROWD CHANTS: # Rolfie, Rolfie... #

1:40:551:41:00

Numbers became a matter of life and death.

1:41:081:41:10

Ten people killed by being crushed in Roskilde that same year.

1:41:101:41:14

So all the ideology, all the free-festival mentality,

1:41:141:41:17

-had gone out the window by then.

-# Out, demons out... #

1:41:171:41:21

So we took a year off and we addressed the problem.

1:41:211:41:25

In that year, we designed... In fact, I sent a postcard with a drawing of what I wanted them to build,

1:41:251:41:30

off to Trakway, the fencing engineers,

1:41:301:41:33

on the Monday morning after the 2000 festival.

1:41:331:41:37

I wanted them to start on it so that I could tell the police and the council

1:41:371:41:41

that I was dealing with it.

1:41:411:41:44

Mean Fiddler were involved as well.

1:41:441:41:46

They gave us a licence for 2002, no problem.

1:41:461:41:49

Going to festivals, it's, like, one of my favourite things to do

1:41:501:41:53

and I'm always thinking, "This is not meaningless."

1:41:531:41:57

There's something about getting together, we've got every right to do.

1:41:571:42:01

They're gonna fuck us of that right. You see that coming, we're gonna be away, separated.

1:42:011:42:08

It was all a bit shaky, really. I was getting bad press because Mean Fiddler were involved.

1:42:091:42:14

They said, "Well, you've sold your soul, haven't you?"

1:42:151:42:19

It was like I'd sold my soul to the devil, basically.

1:44:071:44:10

These things follow us every fucking where we go in the world,

1:44:101:44:13

in the bloody lift, the stairs, the lobby, the carsey...

1:44:131:44:16

You can't even have a piss in the modern world without some cunt filming it.

1:44:161:44:21

I never! I never!

1:44:231:44:26

Get out there, and when you see the BBC,

1:44:261:44:30

wave at them with a stick!

1:44:301:44:32

Just wave it at them!

1:44:321:44:35

That kid there, get him!

1:44:351:44:37

I spoke to Joe and he said, "I'm really, really sorry, Mike, about what happened on stage.

1:44:401:44:45

"I really lost it, I'm afraid. I'm really, really sorry."

1:44:451:44:48

I think he really regretted it.

1:44:481:44:51

-Hello! You all right, lads?

-WOMAN GIGGLES

1:44:511:44:55

Bugger off, you're not wanted!

1:44:551:44:57

WOMAN GIGGLES AGAIN

1:44:571:44:59

So the fence became king to the whole thing.

1:44:591:45:02

# And did those feet

1:45:021:45:06

# In ancient time

1:45:061:45:10

# Walk upon England's... #

1:45:101:45:12

I think it's a good thing. It's nice to be more secure.

1:45:121:45:15

It's nice to know that your stuff's not gonna get robbed.

1:45:151:45:18

I remember the fence at Greenham and I thought,

1:45:181:45:21

what they need here is a lesbian crew

1:45:211:45:24

to take the fence down, frankly!

1:45:241:45:27

At the end of the day, we want this to carry on.

1:45:271:45:30

It should be a lot more back to how it used to be 20 years ago, a lot more peace and love, man, you know?

-'Too many rich people.

-No more travellers.'

1:45:581:46:01

It was them that started it, so if they won't let them in, there's no point in having a festival

1:46:011:46:07

cos the spirit's gone from it. No heart in it no more.

1:46:071:46:10

Yah-hoo!

1:46:221:46:23

Hoo-hoo-hoo! Hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!

1:46:231:46:27

Hoo!

1:46:271:46:28

I think I miss some of the chaos of previous years.

1:46:281:46:32

I'm not saying that was all a good thing, but I think it's a sanitised caricature, in a way,

1:46:321:46:38

of what it used to be, in some ways. But in other ways, it's very good.

1:46:381:46:42

I now have a young daughter and I feel safe now with her on site.

1:46:421:46:46

And I appreciate that a certain level of organisation has to occur,

1:46:461:46:50

but we've got to be very careful not to Big Brother too much -

1:46:501:46:54

bottom wiped, nose cleaned and the rest. We've got to balance the two.

1:46:541:46:58

I'm not a New Age traveller any more, I'm a middle-aged settler.

1:46:581:47:02

I miss the travellers a bit. We've lost the edge, that vibrant thing.

1:47:041:47:09

I want to get them involved rather than sitting around blocking roadways and stuff, you know.

1:47:091:47:14

This is Los Vague House, a friend of Roy.

1:47:141:47:19

He was a convoy by the '80s, gave me lots of grief.

1:47:191:47:23

He was the leader of the pack, with a convoy pack.

1:47:231:47:27

They were all convoy folk, really.

1:47:321:47:35

It was quite edgy, it was quite...

1:47:351:47:37

-Roy! You made it, in the end!

-How are you?

-You're looking very smart -

1:47:371:47:42

1:47:451:47:49

Everything from boxing to weddings.

1:47:491:47:52

..As to why these two persons may not be joined together in holy matrimony,

the Americans didn't really do it - they did it twice, with Woodstock.

They couldn't live with it. We have a tradition of putting up with a lot of grief, a lot of untidiness,

1:53:171:53:20

# Every day I look at the world from my window... #

1:53:201:53:25

Come on!

1:53:251:53:27

# ..Sha la la

1:53:271:53:29

# But chilly, chilly is the evening time

1:53:291:53:33

# Waterloo sunset's fine

1:53:331:53:37

# Ah... #

1:53:371:53:39

God save the Kinks!

1:53:391:53:41

# ..Millions of people

1:53:411:53:44

# Swarming like flies round Waterloo underground

1:53:441:53:49

# But Terry and Julie cross over the river

1:53:501:53:55

# Where they feel safe and sound

1:53:551:53:59

# And they don't... #

1:54:001:54:03

We love you, Glastonbury!

1:54:061:54:08

We love you, Glastonbury!

1:54:081:54:10

What you're getting with your ticket is a real special, special thing

1:54:161:54:21

that, almost like Brigadoon...it just exists, like, for four or five days

1:54:211:54:25

and then disappears.

1:54:251:54:26

TRUMPET BLOWS

1:54:261:54:29

When people say that they've survived Glastonbury, I know exactly what they mean.

1:54:461:54:51

There's a sense of achievement about it, because they've got through it.

1:54:511:54:54

And the festival of course, through 35 years...

1:54:541:54:57

we've been quite determined, you know, to survive in the same way.

1:54:571:55:01

When the chips are down, people get on a lot better.

1:55:041:55:07

Yes!

1:55:311:55:33

You can't buy feelings, you can't buy anything worth having.

1:56:041:56:07

If you want something enough, then it actually will happen.

1:56:071:56:11

OK.

1:56:111:56:13

So, if a lanky get like me can do it and this lot,

1:56:141:56:19

you can do it too, all right?

1:56:191:56:21

# She came from Greece She had a thirst for knowledge

1:56:301:56:34

# She studied sculpture at Saint Martins College

1:56:341:56:36

# That's where I

1:56:361:56:38

# Caught her eye

1:56:401:56:41

# She told me that her dad was loaded

1:56:451:56:48

# I said "In that case I'll have a rum and Coca-Cola"

1:56:481:56:51

# She said "Fine"

1:56:511:56:52

# And in 30 seconds' time she said

1:56:541:56:58

# "I wanna live like common people

1:56:581:57:03

# "I wanna do whatever common people do

1:57:031:57:06

# "I wanna sleep with common people

1:57:061:57:10

# "I wanna sleep with common people like you"

1:57:101:57:13

# Well, what else could I do?

1:57:141:57:16

# I said "I'll...

1:57:161:57:18

# "I'll see what I can do"

1:57:181:57:20

# I took her to a supermarket

1:57:231:57:27

# I don't know why but I had to start it somewhere

1:57:271:57:30

# So it started there

1:57:301:57:33

# I said "Pretend you've got no money"

1:57:361:57:40

# But she just laughed and said "Oh, you're so funny"

1:57:401:57:43

# I said "Yeah?

1:57:431:57:45

# "Well, I can't see anyone else smiling in here

1:57:451:57:47

# "Are you sure

1:57:471:57:49

# "You wanna live like common people

1:57:491:57:52

# "You wanna see whatever common people see

1:57:521:57:56

# "You wanna sleep with common people

1:57:561:57:59

# "You wanna sleep with common people like me?"

1:57:591:58:03

# But she didn't understand

1:58:031:58:05

# But she just smiled and held my hand

1:58:051:58:09

# "Rent a flat above a shop

1:58:101:58:13

# "Cut your hair and get a job

1:58:131:58:17

# "Smoke some fags and play some pool

1:58:171:58:20

# "Pretend you never went to school

1:58:201:58:24

# "But still you'll never get it right

1:58:241:58:26

# "Cos when you're laid in bed at night

1:58:261:58:30

# "Watching roaches climb the wall

1:58:301:58:33

# "If you called your dad he could stop it all

1:58:331:58:37

# "You'll never live like common people

1:58:371:58:40

# "You'll never do whatever common people do

1:58:401:58:44

# "You'll never fail like common people

1:58:441:58:46

# "You'll never watch your life slide out of view

1:58:461:58:50

# "And then dance and drink and screw

1:58:501:58:53

# "Because there's nothing else to do"

1:58:531:58:57

# Ow!

1:58:571:58:59

# I wanna live with common people like you

1:59:111:59:14

# I wanna live with common people like you

1:59:141:59:17

# I wanna live with common people like you

1:59:191:59:22

# I wanna live with common people like you

1:59:221:59:25

# I wanna live with...

1:59:281:59:31

# ..Common people like you

# You Da da da da

1:59:431:59:45

# Oh, yeah. #

1:59:481:59:50

RAPTUROUS APPLAUSE

1:59:501:59:54

One more! Yeah!

1:59:541:59:56

Big Breakfast!

1:59:561:59:57

Big Brother!

1:59:571:59:58

Whoo!

1:59:582:00:00

So it's a survival of good over evil, really,

2:00:002:00:03

which is something that I'm quite... sure about.

2:00:032:00:06

And it does survive.

2:00:062:00:07

It's a bit like New Orleans, you know, goodness does survive over evil...always.

2:00:072:00:13

# You sure you want to be with me?

2:00:512:00:53

# I've nothing to give

2:00:532:00:55

# Won't lie and say this loving's best

2:00:552:00:57

# Leave us in emotional peace

2:00:582:01:00

# Take a walk, taste the rest

2:01:002:01:02

# No, take a rest

2:01:022:01:04

# I see you digging a hole in your neighbourhood

2:01:042:01:07

# You're crazy but you're lazy

2:01:072:01:09

# No need to live in a lean-to

2:01:092:01:10

# Your troubles must be seen to seen to

2:01:102:01:12

# Money like it's paper with faces I remember

2:01:122:01:16

# I drink on a daily basis though it seldom cools my temper

2:01:162:01:19

# It never cools my temper. #

2:01:192:01:20

APPLAUSE

2:01:222:01:24

In 1971, when I first played here,

2:01:252:01:28

I stayed at Worthy Farmhouse

2:01:282:01:31

with a couple of other people.

2:01:312:01:33

Huge bottle of tincture of cannabis from a lovely doctor -

2:01:332:01:37

for medicinal reasons - and got out to the stage about...

2:01:372:01:40

5.30 in the morning.

2:01:402:01:43

This is so cool for us, it really is cool. I've not been here for 30 years.

2:01:432:01:47

And it's fucking great.

2:01:472:01:48

CHEERING

# And you

2:02:132:02:15

# You will be my queen

2:02:172:02:19

# Though nothing

2:02:222:02:25

# Will drive them away

2:02:252:02:27

# We can be heroes

2:02:312:02:33

# Just for one day

2:02:332:02:36

# We can be heroes

2:02:372:02:41

# For ever and ever

2:02:422:02:44

# I

2:02:472:02:49

-I remember

2:02:492:02:56

# Standing

2:02:562:02:58

# Standing by the wall

2:02:592:03:01

# By the wall

2:03:012:03:03

# And the guns

2:03:032:03:05

# The guns shot above our heads

2:03:072:03:10

# Over our heads

2:03:102:03:11

# And we kissed

2:03:112:03:13

-# As though nothing could fall

-Nothing could fall

2:03:142:03:19

# And the shame

2:03:192:03:22

# If fell on the other side

2:03:242:03:27

# We'll beat them

2:03:282:03:30

# For ever and ever

2:03:322:03:35

# We can be heroes

2:03:362:03:39

# Just for one day

2:03:402:03:43

# I just say, I say... #

2:03:442:03:46

CROWD CHEERS

2:03:462:03:49

# ..We can be heroes

2:03:492:03:52

# We can be heroes

2:03:582:04:01

# We can be heroes

2:04:052:04:09

# Just for one day

2:04:102:04:13

# We can be heroes

2:04:142:04:16

# We're nothing

2:04:192:04:22

# And no-one will help us

2:04:222:04:24

# Maybe we're lying

2:04:262:04:29

# Then you better not stay

2:04:302:04:32

# We can be safer

2:04:352:04:38

# Just for one day... #

2:04:392:04:44

APPLAUSE

2:04:442:04:46

# ..Oh... #

2:05:092:05:12

Bye-bye, Glastonbury!

2:05:122:05:15

Next year!

2:05:152:05:16

And that fence round the perimeter...rubbish!

2:05:402:05:43

# Easy! Easy! Easy! Easy! #

2:05:432:05:47

Easy...fence.

2:05:472:05:49

-LAUGHTER

-Fuckin' hell!

2:05:572:06:01

And did those feet in ancient times...?

2:06:052:06:08

I'm not sure what William Blake meant,

2:06:082:06:11

but, to bring that up to date, we now have 300,000 feet walking through these pastures

2:06:112:06:16

every year.

2:06:162:06:17

Oh, I think by now, we have a place in history,

2:06:172:06:20

as so many things have happened here

2:06:202:06:22

in the last 35 years.

2:06:222:06:25

And the experience has been quite phenomenal

2:06:252:06:29

from thousands and thousands of people.

2:06:292:06:32

And because of the values that the festival builds itself on,

2:06:322:06:36

people do really believe that they're having a really good time,

2:06:362:06:39

they're having an experience that they can't find anywhere else, so they go away from here...

2:06:392:06:43

exhilarated and...

2:06:432:06:46

and full of hope for the future.

MUSIC: "Jerusalem" by Hubert Parry

2:06:492:06:53

Bring me my bow of burning gold

2:07:082:07:10

Bring me my arrows of desire

2:07:102:07:13

Bring me my spear, O clouds unfold!

2:07:132:07:17

Bring me my chariot of fire!

2:07:172:07:20

I will not cease from mental fight

2:07:202:07:23

Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand

2:07:232:07:26

Till we have built Jerusalem

2:07:262:07:31

In England's green and pleasant land.
