On Friday 21st June 1979, the Steve Hillage Band
performed a headline set of soaring psychedelic guitar
riffs of cosmic aspirations. The summer solstice night
was a pivotal point in Steve Hillage's musical journey,
and this recording, provided from Steve's personal
archives, will cement the performance as historic.
Prior to the festival, Steve and the band spent two
weeks rehearsing in a barn at Worthy Farm, site of the
Glastonbury Festival. They crafted a set fitting and
psychedelically uplifting enough to truly celebrate the
longest day of Summer at such an auspicious location.
Steve was an integral member of the Glasto team
alongside Michael Eavis, 'Pyramid' Bill Harkin and
Turbosound/Funktion One's Tony Andrews. Their work
focalised the 1979 Fayre, helping the rebirth of the first
of the modern Glastonbury Festivals.
After spending the 80's in music production, Steve and
his partner Miquette Giraudy returned to recording and
live performance in the 90's with the dance oriented
System 7 and was fundamental in the introduction of
the Dance Stage to Glastonbury in 1995.
