Glastonbury chief Michael Eavis honoured
Glastonbury Festival chief, Michael Eavis has been honoured at a high-profile award ceremony.
The 79 year-old, who started the world-famous festival back in 1970 was given an award for his “outstanding contribution to live music in the UK“.
“After crawling through a hole in the hedge to take a peep at Freddie Bannister’s Bath Blues Festival in 1970, I can’t believe that 44 years of semi-controlled chaos has led to me receiving this prestigious award. Thank you all so much,” he said.
Glastonbury, which is now one of the biggest festivals in the world, attracts over 100,000 revellers each year and boasts a start-studded line-up.
This year acts such as AC/DC, Fleetwood Mac and more recently Taylor Swift have been rumoured to make a performance at the 2015 bash.
Glastonbury Festival 2015 takes place at Worthy Farm from 24th – 28th June. Tickets are sold out.
