About the event

No Glastonbury this year, never fear, it is here!

Lost In Vagueness is a night to celebrate, re-live and rejoice in the world that was Lost Vagueness, the infamous party that, as Michael Eavis says, reinvigorated Glastonbury Festival.

You'll see the feature film, dance to the music and delight in our one-off immersive night for the very wrongly behaved.

We encourage everyone to come in their best DIY outfits!

About the film

Lost In Vagueness, the untold backstage story of Glastonbury Festival. Britain's sub-culture history goes from 1990's travellers to Lost Vagueness - a place of decadence and muddy opulence - then it saved Glastonbury in the early 2000's. Featuring Fat Boy Slim, Madness and Kate Tempest and Michael and Emily Eavis.

Antihero, Roy, and Glastonbury founder, Michael, became friends in the early 1990's. Through their story, we retrace Britain's sub-culture history, to see how a band of maverick new-age travellers came together to create Lost Vagueness. It was a place of opulence and decadence, and reminiscent of a permissive 1920's Berlin, but all in a muddy field.

As an anarchic, punk traveller, Roy scoured Europe searching for a community where he could escape his oppressive upbringing. But he returned to Glastonbury, to work as one of the regular site crew. Back then, he had no idea that the ironic faux casino, he'd begun as a joke for the other site crew, would turn into the very event that would revive the festival from cultural bankruptcy, and, set the dominant cultural style of the naughties. Today the legacy of Lost Vagueness can be seen in global as well as UK culture.
