Glastonbury Bringing Back 1971 Acts for 40th Anniversary

(Gibson) Glastonbury organizer Michael Eavis is marking his music and arts festival's 40th birthday by setting up a special stage for the acts that played the very first festival in 1971.

The Daily Express reports that the 200,000 music fans attending in June will be able to visit the Spirit of '71 stage that will feature Melanie, one time Hawkwind star Nik Turner, Arthur Brown, Linda Lewis and Edgar Broughton.

Melanie, best known for her hit "Brand New Key," told Uncut magazine, "I'm now in the unique position of being a person who's just starting out, yet I've had 45 years of doing this. It's very strange." more on this story
