This June, Worthy Farm will host one of the coolest experiential ideas we've ever seen at a festival. Glastonbury producers are arranging for a "drive-in cinema" at the fest, with a lineup curated by legendary filmmaker Julien Temple. Fans will watch the films from theater "seats" made of 100 cars from 1960s America and Cuba.

In an interview at Thursday's NME Awards, Glastonbury head Michael Eavis told the press, “We’ve got a massive film screen and 100 1960s American and Cuban cars... 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.’"

Julien Temple is known for his documentation of the global rock scene, notably in the UK, since the 1970s. He's directed two documentaries on The Sex Pistols, in addition to music videos for the likes of The Kinks, Tom Petty, and Neil Young.
