Perhaps the biggest news over the Christmas Holidays from an alt music perspective, was Michael Eavis being knighted in the new year’s honours list.

Congratulations Sir Michael.

Having taken Glastonbury Festival from a tiny event to a leading fixture of the UK cultural calendar, it was much deserved.

Eavis said after: “I have had a good life and managed to keep the festival going for 53 years. It’s all gone so well in the end. It took 25 years for the public to catch on. We started with 500 people in 1970 and we’ve finished up with millions wanting to come every year now. That’s quite extraordinary, isn’t it?… Last time I met [King Charles], I got a suit especially. And he said, ‘Why aren’t you wearing your shorts?’! But I think William might do the ceremony. He’s made a few mentions of wanting to come to the festival. So, I’ll probably take a couple of tickets in my pocket!”
