FILM SCREENING & AFTER-PARTY

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. See the film, dance to the music and party at our one-off immersive night for the very wrongly behaved!

The film Lost In Vagueness is the untold backstage story of Glastonbury Festival and how antihero Roy teamed up with Glastonbury founder Michael to create a place of decadence and muddy opulence. And it saved the festival from cultural bankruptcy in the process…

Lost In Vagueness: The Ultimate Untold Glastonbury Festival Story
The film of Roy Gurvitz, who invented the Lost Vagueness area at Glastonbury and who, as Michael Eavis says, reinvigorated the festival. It’s a story of the dark, self-destructive side of creative talent and the personal trauma behind it. Anti-hero, 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 troublesome 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 Glastonbury brought him back each year, 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 noughties.
