Glastonbury to feature vintage drive-in cinema in 2017

This year’s Glastonbury will feature a drive-in cinema with films selected by filmmaker Julien Temple.

The area will feature 100 vintage American and Cuban cars according to Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis.

“This is the biggest thing of the year,” Eavis told NME. “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 doing all the film choices.”

Temple has an extensive history documenting the Sex Pistols early in their career and made a documentary about Glastonbury in 2006.

The festival will take a year off in 2018, with its future in Pilton still undecided. Festival boss Emily Eavis told NME they were “throwing everything” into this year’s event and booking twice as many bands.

Radiohead are the only act officially confirmed to play the festival with the full line-up unveiled next month.
