There’s plenty more for film-lovers at Glastonbury 2017, after Michael and Emily Eavis told NME that they’d also be introducing a new ‘drive-in cinema‘ area, curated by Julien Temple.

“We’ve got a massive film screen and 100 1960s American and Cuban cars,” Michael told NME. “We’ve put them all in straight lines, so you can sit in the cars, watch the films, the sound comes into the cars by a little Bluetooth thingy on the wing mirror. Julian Temple is doing all the film choice. This is the biggest thing of the year.”

While Emily Eavis recently hinted at a ‘really big secret set‘, recent weeks have seen Glade, Shangri-La, Block9, The Field Of Avalon and more reveal their individual line-ups and further grow the Glasto bill. Last month, it was announced that Hacienda Classical and the Manchester Camerata would be opening the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury 2017 on the Friday. Organiser Emily Eavis has also hinted at even more “surprises” coming on the line-up, as well as when to expect the next festival announcements.

Glastonbury 2017 will be headlined by Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran while the likes of Royal Blood, The National, Katy Perry, Boy Better Know, Stormzy, Alt-J, The Courteeners, The xx, and many more are also set to perform. The festival takes place at Worthy Farm in Somerset from 21 – 25 June.
