Get it while it lasts…
The signed edition of ‘Glastonbury 50’ is once again available to buy via Waterstones Wells‘ local bookstore, after previously selling out during pre-orders prior to the book being released on October 31, 2019.
The local book shop informed fans of a visit they received this evening (January 25), from non-other than ‘Glastonbury 50’ co-author and Festival founder Michael Eavis himself – while sharing photos of the Glastonbury boss singing several copies of the acclaimed book, Waterstones Wells urged everyone to “come pick up a copy” while they still have some.

Some stores, including Waterstones, currently have the standard unsigned edition of the book on offer for just £15.
‘Glastonbury 50‘ previously became the highest new non-fiction entry while shooting straight into 3rd place in the Sunday Times Bestseller List for hardback books, in addition to being named by The Times newspaper as one of the ‘Books of the Year’ for 2019 – The official book of the behind-the-scenes, inside story of the legendary Festival, composed by organisers Michael and Emily Eavis – was also placed 10th in Amazon’s own chart among all non-fiction books.
Glastonbury’s 50th-anniversary celebrations will take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset from Wednesday 24th to Sunday 28th June 2020.
Taylor Swift was the second headliner to be announced for the 2020 edition of the Festival – after Paul McCartney, and joins Diana Ross who was officially confirmed earlier last year as Glastonbury’s 50-anniversary ‘Legends’ slot performer – while Mike Skinner, Carl Cox, Fun Lovin’ Criminals and most recently Crowded House are the latest big-scale artists to self-confirm for the Festival’s 2020 bill thus far.
Also confirmed for the bill are Wolf Alice who were announced as playing Glastonbury’s 50th by non-other than Glasto founder, Michael Eavis himself.
Despite the fact that the full line-up for Glastonbury 2020 has yet to be released – all tickets for the Festival’s 50th anniversary have now sold out, with General Admission tickets selling out in 33 minutes, following Coach + Ticket Packages which sold out in just 27 minutes.
There are still ways to go to Glastonbury this year, and in addition to being able to volunteer – there will also be a resale of any cancelled tickets in the spring, with coach + ticket packages going up for resale on April 16 – followed by a general admission tickets resale (which don’t include travel) on April 19.
