It began the day after Jimi Hendrix died, was supposed to feature The Kinks as headliners and was originally conceived to clear the overdraft of a hard-up Michael Eavis.

This year Glastonbury turns 50 and this weekend we should’ve been looking forward to seeing the likes of Sir Paul McCartney and Noel Gallagher appear alongside an array of other diverse entertainment acts.

To celebrate what would have been Glastonbury’s 50th Anniversary, Radio Nova will be bringing you the best sets from Glastonbury over the years and highlight the acts of 1999.

Check out our line up:

9pm. Ian Dury and the Blockheads Live Hour Concert.

This is a real treat for the next hour. We are warning now that some of the lyrics are explicit. If you’re easily offended this is not the place to be. If you love funky crazy music then pull up a seat. They were meant to play Glastonbury in 1999 but pulled out at the last minute due to illness. It was the following year the music world lost Ian Dury. This is what Glastonbury missed  that Sunday night in 1999.
