Now in its 44th year, Glastonbury is heralded as one of the world’s greatest music and performing arts festivals. Arriving from all over the globe, Glastonbury-goers convene in a vast pop-up city located in England’s Vale of Avalon for five thrilling and sleepless days and nights. Made for iBooks, this Multi-Touch guide offers an immersive look at the impressive 2014 line-up, as well as a colourful overview of Glastonbury’s history and participants. Exclusive photo galleries, video and audio podcasts capture the wonders of this uplifting and spiritual experience—from musical acts, craftspeople, circus and theatre performers to tipi-dwelling futurists, traditional healers and giant flame-throwing spiders. All proceeds from the Multi-Touch book go to Glastonbury’s three charities: Oxfam, WaterAid and Greenpeace.
