In 1995, the year after Glastonbury was first broadcast on TV, we jumped the fence with 80,000 others, doubling the on-site population. By 2000 we joined an estimated 125,000 others without tickets pushing the capacity dangerously to over 250,000 people. I’m not proud of breaking the law, but come on, did anyone actually know a legitimate ticket holder under the age of 25?
Glastonbury came back in 2002 with the infamous million-pound ‘superfence’ and after walking the entire perimeter amongst a very hostile vibe, we admitted defeat and took our only year off for this epic adventure.
In 2003 we bought tickets and caught the Lost Vagueness bug.
Lost in Vauegness – Brighton Sat 16 Jun The Old Market
A night to celebrate, re-live and rejoice in the world that was Lost Vagueness in our home town of Brighton See the film, dance to the music and party at this one-off immersive night for the very wrongly behaved!
The film Lost In Vagueness is the untold backstage story of Glastonbury Festival and how antihero Roy teamed up with Glastonbury founder Michael to create a place of decadence and muddy opulence. Oh, and it saved the festival from cultural bankruptcy in the process.
As an anarchic punk traveller, Roy scoured Europe searching for a community where he could escape his oppressive upbringing. But failing to find a home, he therefore returned to Glastonbury to work as one of the regular site crew.
There, he created an ironic faux casino as a joke for the other site crew. Little did he know that it would set the dominant cultural style of the naughties.
