A photograph taken at Glastonbury during the daytime. The image depicts a man with no shirt and blue shorts bending down over a firepit within a campsite in the middle of a grassy field. Three small tents are erected around him, and a red trailer vehicle is parked to the right of the tents. Beyond the small campsite a blue campervan is parked in the field, and beyond the campervan a temporary stage is erected.

Pop, Folk & Blues

Held on the day after Jimi Hendrix died, 2,000 people came to hear Marc Bolan and T Rex, Al Stewart, Keith Christmas and Stackridge. Inspired by the Blues Festival held at the Bath and West Showground, dairy farmer Michael Eavis organised the event in the hope of paying off his mortgage, although £1,500 was lost on the first event.
