First Glastonbury DVD Compilation in March

Published: 2005-01-14
Being one of the biggest and best annual summer festivals held on the planet, England's Glastonbury festival has gained quite a reputation for itself. Known for helping to launch the careers of Coldplay and Oasis into super space, it's safe to say that the festival has had some great moments as it rolls into its fourth decade of existence.

Some of the most spectacular Glastonbury moments of the past 10 years have been compiled to appear on a DVD entitled 'Glastonbury Anthems - The Best of 1994-2004', set for release on March 21. The track-list was voted upon by music fans at the official Glastonbury web site, so they've got to be golden. In addition to the concert footage, the DVD includes a short film called 'Visit to the Glastonbury Greenfields', and a short clip from the film 'Glastonbury Fayre', which was made at the 1971 Festival.

The track-listing of 'Glastonbury Anthems' is:

'This Is a Low' - Blur (1994)
'One Way of Life' - Levellers (1994)
'Connection' - Elastica (1995)
'Breathe' - The Prodigy (1997)
'Karma Police' - Radiohead (1997)
'The Crawl' - Placebo (1998)
'Angels' - Robbie Williams (1998)
'Scooby Snax' - Fun Lovin' Criminals (1999)
'A Design For Life' - Manic Street Preachers (1999)
'Hey Boy Hey Girl' - Chemical Brothers (2000)
'Why Does My Heart' - Moby (2000)
'Driftwood' - Travis (2000)
'Yellow' - Coldplay (2002)
'We Come 1' - Faithless (2002)
'Shining Light' - Ash (2002)
'Pumping on Your Stereo' - Supergrass (2003)
'Rocks' - Primal Scream (2003)
'Good Luck' - Basement Jaxx (2003)
'Matinee' - Franz Ferdinand (2004)
'Hey Jude' - Paul McCartney (2004)

Tickets for Glastonbury sell out incredibly quickly (last year they sold at a rate of 100 per minute) and this year will be no different. Acts are already signing on for the event - scheduled for the weekend of June 24-16 - including Franz Ferdinand, Snow Patrol, and Bloc Party, building up the already massive anticipation. A change to the Glastonbury set-up from this year and onwards is that the Dance Tent is being replaced with the John Peel Stage in honour of the late, great radio DJ.
