R.I.P. Andrew Kerr

R.I.P. Andrew Kerr

Andrew Kerr, co-organiser of the Glastonbury Festival for many years, passed over today. It is 44 years to the day that he moved on site at Worthy Farm to begin organising the 1971 free festival ‘Glastonbury Fair’ together with Arabella Churchill and Michael Eavis. – the true origin of the Glastonbury Festival we still love today.

There is much that could be said of this incredible achievement amonst his many others but better to hear it in his own words in his autobiography Intolerably Hip: The memoirs of Andrew Kerr. More important is to note from his achievements that we can achieve anything and everything if we work together with the right intention and motives.

Farewell to one of my personal heroes – a true Avalonian.
