Following the postponement of Glastonbury as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, London’s V&A museum is marking what would have been the festival’s 50th anniversary with a stunning virtual exhibition.

Glastonbury’s milestone edition was set to take place this week, with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift and Diana Ross headlining. However, like almost all mass global events, the Somerset-based festival was forced to postpone.

To ensure fifty years since the festival’s birth is still celebrated, the V&A museum has launched an online exhibition that’s available all week. It features extensive footage and images from the Glastonbury Festival archives, as well as rare imagery, posters, tickets, architectural drawings, playlists, soundscapes and fashion reporting.

“You couldn’t just invent a Glastonbury now. There is something about the organic way in which it has developed from that moment of the first festival,” V&A curator Kate Bailey told The Guardian.

The museum has also urged festival goers to submit their own memories of the festival for them to use in their archives, allowing them to “map personal experiences to the rich and extensive timeline of the Festival’s history”.

Head over to the V&A website for further information and to view some of the current archive Glastonbury material they have on offer.

In other news, French photographer Florent Tanet has created a stunning lockdown photo series using household objects and a velux window.
