Glastonbury Festival 1990

Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th June 1990
Worthy Farm, Pilton, nr Glastonbury, Somerset, England
£38
daily capacity: 70000

This is the last Festival for which CND is the major beneficiary, as the Cold War comes to an end, and it is renamed to reflect the diversity of attactions.

The licenced attendance is increased to 70,000, and the Green Fields are much enlarged.

Acts include: Happy Mondays (a truely legendary - and truely AWFUL - performance, they cleared around 50,000 people from in front of the Pyramid Stage during their first two horribly out-of-tune, out-of-time songs), James, De La Soul, Sinead O'Conner, Ry Cooder, Aswad, The Cure, Lush, Pale Saints, Galaxie 500.

£100,000 is raised for CND and local charities.

On the Monday after the Festival there are fights between site security and New Age Travellers (who arrived without tickets and uninvited to "squat" in a field adjacent to the site - in effect adding an extra field to the Festival). Michael Eavis places the blame for the trouble squarely on the shoulders of the travellers, although none are convicted of any offence from these incidents, whilst some of the security staff are. The result is no Festival in '91, and as less welcoming attitude to the travellers in the future.
