This summer’s must-see music documentary, AMY, will be screened in the appropriate surroundings of the Glastonbury Festival on Thursday 25th June.

Presented by The Guardian newspaper, this special screening will be introduced by editor Chris King and the audience will also be treated to a specially recorded video message from director Asif Kapadia. The event will take place in the William’s Green area of the festival site at 2:45pm. The late singer, who died in 2011, had a long-standing connection with the festival, performing there in 2004, 2007, and 2008.

The legendary Glastonbury Festival (or the Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts to give it its official title) has towered over the summer music scene like a veritable colossus since 1970, and takes place annually (give or take the odd rest year) on Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset. This year’s edition of the festival will be headlined by Dave “my other band is Nirvana” Grohl’s Foo Fighters, self-proclaimed genius and designer of dodgy sneakers Kanye West, and indefatigable classic rock dinosaurs The Who.

AMY will be released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on the 3rd of July.
