"Emily Eavis’s childhood recollections, and photographs... are captivating."

Fretting at missing out on joining Paul McCartney in a mass singalong of Hey Jude at Glastonbury 2020? This pictorial history offers some consolation. The whole thing is essentially one big festival brochure, but Emily Eavis’s childhood recollections, and photographs documenting how it went from a mellow hippy love-in with free milk in 1971 to a crusty nightmare in the early Nineties to the fully functioning pop-up city it is today, are captivating.
