This year’s Glastonbury Festival will feature a drive-in vintage style cinema with films selected by ‘Sex Pistols’ filmmaker Julien Temple.
The cinema area will feature 100 vintage American and Cuban cars and host massive film screen, according to Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis.
“This is the biggest thing of the year,” Eavis told NME magazine. “We’ve put them all in straight lines, so you can sit in the cars, watch the films and the sound comes into the cars by a little Bluetooth thingy on the wing mirror. Julien Temple is choosing all the film choices.”
Julien Temple has an extensive history documenting London’s Punk scene and filming the Sex Pistols early in their career. He also made a documentary about Glastonbury in 2006 and has gone on to direct music videos and other feature films.
The festival will be taking a fallow year in 2018 although its future location is still undecided. Festival boss Emily Eavis told NME they were “throwing everything” into this year’s event and booking twice as many bands.
So far Radiohead are the only act officially confirmed to play the festival with the full line-up revealed next month.
