A brand new documentary about Glastonbury by filmmaker Julien Temple is set to premiere on June 15 on BBC4.
Glastonbury After Hours: Glastopia was shot at last year’s festival on location in the Shangri-La, Arcadia, the Unfair Ground, Strummerville, Block 9 and the Common areas.
Temple directed 2006’s acclaimed Glastonbury documentary film, which delved into the history of the festival, which is taking a fallow year this summer, before returning in 2013.
Of the new film, Temple says: “This is the heart of the Festival that hasn’t been shown; the radical core that makes Glastonbury still so very different from all the other festivals in the world. In the middle of the whole mad week, here are people talking about their politics, their ideas and the rest of their lives.”
He adds: “Glastopia is giving voice to people who don’t normally have a voice in the media; a radical and alternative voice, born out the whole Festival experience.”
The 75 minute long Glastonbury After Hours: Glastopia will premiere at 10pm on Friday June 15 on BBC4.
It will be followed by a screening of Radiohead‘s 1997 Pyramid Stage gig.
