Glastonbury Phonographic Society: Glastonbury Festival Starts Its Own Record Label


By: Spacelab Research Staff
The UK-based Glastonbury Festival may be taking a year off from performances, but it continues to plan and thrive with new projects. The newest one is a record label, dedicated to releasing material from the festival. It's called the Glastonbury Phonographic Society.

"Glastonbury Festival has agreed for [festival contributor] EMAP to market a series of CD's and DVD's of some of the great performances by bands that have played at the Festival over the years," said festival organizer Michael Eavis.

The first one is a soundtrack from the upcoming Glastonbury film / documentary, titled Music From Glastonbury: The Film, which will be released in early August. After that, there'll be releases of audio CD's and DVD's for past and future performances. 25% of the proceeds will go to some of Glastonbury's favorite charities.

The festival is reportedly talking to Doves, Orbital, Feeder, and Ian Brown and more about releasing their past performances.
