As an anarchic, punk traveller, Roy Gurvitz, founder of ‘Lost Vagueness’, scoured Europe searching for a community where he could escape his oppressive upbringing. Eventually, he returned to Glastonbury, to work with the regular site crew, where he had become friends with Michael Eavis in the early 1990s. Back then, he had no idea that the ironic faux casino that he had begun as a joke for the other site crew, would turn into the very event that would revive the festival from bankruptcy, and set the dominant cultural style of the 2000s. It was a place of opulence and decadence, and reminiscent of a permissive 1920s Berlin, but all in a muddy field. Today the legacy of ‘Lost Vagueness’ can be seen not only in UK, but across the global festival culture. Featuring lives acts and interviews from Fatboy Slim, Suggs (Madness) and Kate Tempest and with a soundtrack featuring over 50 artists including Beck, C.W. Stoneking, Louis Jordan and many more.
