The wholesale market caters for traders throughout the Festival who are estimated to provide 3 million meals for festival goers, crew and performers. Gates opened on Wednesday at the Somerset diary farm that will be playing host to one of the largest music festivals in the world and this year features headline acts Artic Monkeys, Mumford and Sons and the Rolling Stones. Tickets to the event which is now in its 43rd year sold out in minutes and that was before any of the headline acts had been confirmed. The festival, which started in 1970 when several hundred hippies paid 1 GBP to watch Marc Bolan, now attracts more than 175,000 people over five days.

    Jesus and Mary Chain and Primal Scream are set to feature in a new documentary from director Grant McPhee.

    McPhee previously released a movie, The Big Gold Dream, a movie which documented Scottish Indie labels, Fast Product and Postcard Records and the scene they generated which facilitated the rise of bands Orange Juice, Teenage Fanclub and the Jesus and Mary Chain.

    The new movie, Teenage Superstars, is the second installment in Mcphee's vision, and it's being geared up for release. This time the director focuses his lens on the city of Glasgow in the 1980's, and includes interviews with the team involved in Creation Records, BMX Bandits, the Jesus and Mary Chain, Teenage Fanclub and Primal Scream.

    In a press release in promotion of the film, McPhee says, "This is a film that shows people what they can achieve when they break the rules."

    To complete the project, the film's creators have launched a crowdfunding campaign. They seek £20,000 or over $25,000. Besides posters, mugs, and other memorability, a donation of £1250 will earn backers an associate producer credit.

    Check out the trailer, and step back in time to an era of big hair, ambitious ideas and rock 'n' roll from the edge of some other place.
