In the article the man who, with Arabella Churchill, put on the Glastonbury Fair of 1971 reveals that the Edgar Broughton Band, Mike Oldfield, Steve Hillage, Arthur Brown, Nick Lowe who played at the 1971 festival with his band Brinsley Schwarz, and 'Windmills of Your Mind' singer Noel Harrison will be helping to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the unforgettable fair by appearing on the Anniversary Pyramid Stage at this year's Festival.

The stage which eFestivals first revealed news of, (here), is designed to be an echo back to the very first Pyramid Stage at the 1971 festival, the second festival to happen at Worthy Farm and the first to be held at midsummer. Nik Turner has also revealed he will be playing with a 40th anniversary celebratory group of musicians who performed with Hawkwind at that band's first performance at the festival in 1971.

Andrew Kerr has written a book about his life, called 'Intolerably Hip' and it will be published this year before the Festival happens, priced at £14 by Frontier on May 12th.

UK ticket balances will be payable in the first week of April 2011 from 9am tomorrow, Friday 1st April until 11.59pm on Thursday 7th April with balances either paid online at http://www.seetickets.com/g2011 or on the booking line: 0844 412 4635.

Anyone who doesn't pay their ticket balance during the applicable week will be automatically refunded their deposit (minus a £10 admin fee).
