More about this season

The V&A is home to the Glastonbury Festival Archive, an extraordinary collection of objects, sounds, sights and memories that encapsulate Glastonbury Festival. To open up the archive and bring it to life, we have collaborated with digital agency We Are Freak to develop a fully immersive and interactive map of the Festival.

Explore the organic growth of Glastonbury Festival through five decades, from the 1970's until today, and discover how the landscape of the Festival has evolved over time and inspired scenography and creativity.

The map, created by referencing the real topography of Worthy Farm and its surrounding area, is presented as a 3D experience. Double-click on the map and be transported down into the Festival site where you can move around and discover each distinct area from the Pyramid Stage and the Green fields, to the Park and beyond.

Click on hundreds of floating 'nodes' dotted around the festival to access an incredible collection of objects, photographs, memories, soundscapes and films clips from the V&A's Glastonbury Festival Archive.

Produced in partnership with the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) as part of the Glastonbury @50: Mapping and Visualising Festival Culture project.
