Up on the hill at Glastonbury, high above Babylon and the Pyramid stage with its litter overload and mainstream acts, another kind of experience takes place. In fields known as Shangri La, Arcadia, the Unfair Ground, Strummerville, Block 9 and the Common, an unlikely attempt at Utopia takes shape. By firelight and starlight, lifestyles readjust with nature and rediscover themselves. Here, like a futuristic graphic novel, the Festival reconnects with its radical, countercultural origins. Not in a hippy dippy way, but with a dark, urgent 21st century spontaneity. Here in the fields of Avalon, time is running out, questions must be asked, hard choices made. Here is Michael and the dynasties that have come before, young tribes of 21st century Albion, their chances, hopes for the future and their own Utopias. Fuelled by the sights, sounds and music of tomorrow and the insights of the past, Glastopia is thrilling and provocative entertainment for the dangerous crossroads of today.
