Glastonbury es una ciudad situada al suroeste de Inglaterra donde, desde 1969, se ha venido celebrando casi todos los veranos un festival de música pop de tres días de duración. El festival es lugar de encuentro para miles de visitantes que acuden a la ciudad para oír a los mejores nombres del pop, y que aprovechan para visitar los lugares que se asocian con la mítica tumba del rey Arturo y con el lugar donde José de Arimatea llevó el Santo Grial.
