The critical consensus

“It’s just such a nice vibe,” says one reveller. “I haven’t really got much more to say.” Trouble is, neither has Mahoney’s film.

**(*)(*)(*)James Mottram, Total Film, 28/06/2012

The film is at its best when the cameras simply meander through the throng, the music and hubbub blending hypnotically.

***(*)(*)Robbie Collin, The Telegraph, 28/06/2012

It's baggy, it's meandering, it's altogether uncritical. For all that, the film's giddy, carnival-esque air proves infectious.

***(*)(*)Xan Brooks, The Guardian, 28/06/2012

Unless you were actually present at Glastonbury in 1993, when most of this documentary's footage was shot, it will carry little force either as sentimental souvenir or musical entertainment.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 29/06/2012

Captivating images make this more than just a simple music doc, but frustrating editing choices hamper the action.
