The Glastonbury Festival first debuted in 1970 with 1,500 people in attendance for two-days of blues. It has now grown to see over 100,000 rock, alternative, folk and blues fans attend this good-natured gathering on a British farm.

Reason #48 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
In addition to Widescreen Review, I subscribe to several audio/video publications, such as Sound And Vision, Stereophile, Stereophile Guide To Home Theater, Audio Video Interiors, and peruse through the myriad of British audio video publications when I go to Borders, Barnes & Nobles, or Tower Records. I must acknowledge that Widescreen Review is one of the better ones because it is more like a trade publication than a magazine full of advertisements. Moreover, Widescreen Review was one of the first publications to delve into DVI and more importantly, HMDI, which I deem important because it can make a lot of the current products out there obsolete. Put simply, Widescreen Review is The New York Times of audio/video publication. In other words, if you want real news, you read The New York Times. To stay on top of what’s happening in the audio/video industry, you read Widescreen Review. Enough said.
