Tales From Glastonbury 1989

Tales From Glastonbury 1989

Glastonbury is one of the most famous and well-known festival in the world. Every year thousands come to enjoy the top musical acts and Kanye West.
While clearing out a cupboard recently Reuters photographer Dylan Martinez found six rolls of black and white film marked “Glastonbury ’89”. The developed photos show how he and a group of friends made a last-minute decision to join the revellers at the music festival in southwest England, where the line-up included Van Morrison, The Proclaimers and Peter Gabriel.
More than 25 years on and no longer a teenager, Martinez returns this year to capture more Glastonbury moments.
